Sistema Concert. Saturday 9th July

Well done to our Sistema orchestra who braved torrential rain to rehearse and perform with children from Lakenham, Norwich Primary Academy and Catton Grove on Satuday. They rehearsed from 10 – 12pm and then the concert was from 1 – 2.30pm. There was fantastic support from our parents.  Most of the children had not picked up an instrument before September last year, let alone played in an orchestra! 10 months later and they are confidently performing in front of family, friends and strangers!  Well done to everyone involved.  Sistema has now finished for this academic year so we look forward to dusting off the instruments in September and welcoming new children from Year 3!

A big thank you to the parents and families who ferried, transported and supported with great joy and enthusiasm.

Year 5 Space Open Afternoon

Year 5 have worked extremely hard this term and the exhibition yesterday showed that. Not only a live performance for parents but an entire room dedicated to all things space. It was lovely to see so many parents, family and friends coming in and supporting and celebrating the year 5 successes.

Thursday 30th June

Thursday 30th June was our first ever Romance Event.  Children spent the afternoon with their new teachers and took part in workshops based around the REAL science project themes for September. The aims were simple:  to excite the children about science and capture their ideas, thoughts, questions so that these could be used by their teachers when they meet this week to plan the projects.  The Year 3 team went down to Nelson to work with the Year 2’s who will be joining us in September.  Thanks to staff for their hard work and imagination in planning the sessions and to the children for their engagement and excitement as they explore and discovered.

EU Referendum

Year 5 learnt about the EU referendum- looking at both sides sides of the vote. They were then given the chance to vote within Year 5 what they wanted.

Results were:

Leave 19 Votes

At the end of the voting, we discussed the importance of voting and whether we would vote in the future.
