Year 5 had a Vikings workshop today in school. They loved getting involved with some of the activities Bjorn (their Viking guide) showed them.

In the pictures below, you can see the fun they had grinding corn with a quern stone, handling Viking artefacts and looking at Viking weaponry. What a great way to end the first half-term!

Year 3 parents were invited into class this afternoon for the Jelly Bean Café! They joined in with a range of maths games and activities which worked on developing reasoning skills. A great way to end the first half-term.

Norwich Science Festival

Year 6 went on a trip today to the Norwich Science Festival. They attended a session called, ‘Fireworks: Real science or just big bangs?’ They learnt all about the job of a pyrotechnic and how science is used to make fireworks. They had a brilliant time and returned to school so excited to continue with their learning in science!


Year 2 have been working so hard on their homework this term. This is only a small collection of their fantastic efforts. 
We had a photographer from the Eastern Daily Press take a photo of all of the Reception children for inclusion in the ‘First Class Supplement’. It will be published in the Norwich Evening News on the 18th October.

We’re opening up our well-stocked research library to parents every Thursday afternoon from 2.30 – 3pm. Come along, meet with our school librarian, choose a book to read with your child, and browse our range of books for adults from our parent library. We look forward to seeing you there.

The library will remain open every Thursday until 3.30pm so that you can also come along with your child. 

The hall was full of singing this morning as we had our harvest assembly. Many thanks to parents, pupils and staff for all the generous donations of food.

Reception parents were invited into class today. They joined in with a range of craft and construction activities related to the theme of harvest.

Miss Kerrison and Mr Cross were asked to judge the scarecrow competition. Well done to Betty, the winning scarecrow from Miss Compton’s Class!

Thank you for all your food donations so far. There’s still time to make a donation before our Harvest assembly on Friday. The donations box can be found in the front entrance of the school.

All food is going to the Norwich foodbank UK

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve just been awarded gold status for our work on the All Together Programme. The Project works to reduce bullying and improve the well-being of pupils in school. 

We’re continuing to develop the programme this year to ensure Queen’s Hill remains a happy environment for all, where bullying is not tolerated.
