The Rotakids have been out in the local community completing a litter pick. The children were shocked with how much rubbish they found but are happy knowing that they have made a positive impact on their local community.

Y5 Panathlon

Y5 were lucky to attend an event at Taverham high School in association with Panathlon UK. It was a multi-sport event where children took part in 8 different activities scoring points for Queen’s Hill as they did so. Luckily we had glorious weather and the children thoroughly enjoyed taking part.

Y5 Eaton Vale

Y5 had an amazing time on their 2022 residential at Eaton Vale. They took part in lots of sport and adventurous activities and were able to enjoy being outside and running around. The children faced their fears head on with the heights of the trapeze and the confined space of the cave bus. Luckily the sun shone on the last two days so when it came time to jump into the river we were able to dry off in the sun. The food prepared was delicious and we even got to celebrate with a bbq on the last night.

Year 4 Art Day Week Beginning 02/05/22

In Year 4 this week, we have had an Art day. We have been making printing blocks from cardboard and Styrofoam. We experimented with shapes and patterns, as well as different surfaces such as paper and fabric. We finished the day by creating collographs, which we are excited to use when they’re dry. Here is some of our work.

Year 1 Writing

Year 1 has got off to a great start for Summer term with their writing. We have been looking at attractions in Norfolk and the features of posters. Children then created their own posters based on some of Norfolk’s attractions.

First Aid in Year 4

This week, to link in with our English work on Shackleton’s adventure to Antarctica, we have spent some time in the outdoor classroom learning about basic first aid. We have role played various situations, including asthma attacks, bleeding and calling for an ambulance!

The key points we learnt were:

  • To keep calm 
  • Check it’s safe to help
  • Ask what happened and what hurts
  • Say kind, comforting things
  • Take action if you can
  • Get help (an adult or call 999)

Sharing stories with buddies

Before the Easter holidays, children in Year 4 spent a number of weeks writing their own legends based on Blue Frog: The Legend of Chocolate. They designed front covers for their stories and made them into mini books.

Today, the children in Year 4 shared their stories with their Year 1 buddies!

Stone Age Day in Year 3!

Today, Year 3 have been learning all about their new history topic of The Stone Age. They have looked at the stone age diet, the stone age number system and created their own cave paintings.

Roundnet Taster Session

Y5 were given the opportunity yesterday to take part in Roundnet taster sessions run by Zero Bounds. The children and teachers absolutely loved the game! It was simple to play and inclusive for all but it was an incredible workout with its fast paced gameplay.
