Year one have made a fantastic start to the year. They have spent the first week exploring the new outside resources. They have created delicious food in the outdoor kitchen and building hand eye co-ordination playing tennis. Children have enjoyed having a go at writing and phonics is underway!
This half term Year 2 have been enjoying developing their throwing, aiming and agility skills in PE. This week they took part in a carousel of activities to practise what they’ve learnt. They even challenged themselves to adapt the activities to make them trickier!
Year 6 have been enjoying their weekly cricket sessions through Norfolk Cricket’s ‘Chance 2 Shine programme’ this half term. They have been developing concentration, focus, hand-eye coordination and throwing and catching skills. Today the children focused on the accuracy of their bowling and, with grit and determination, many managed to successfully knock down the wickets!
What an amazing turn out we had for our Big Toddle Reception Event today! The children were all dressed up in safari outfits and joined in with a range of activities, including balance beams, obstacle courses and throwing and catching races.
Thank you to all of the parents and carers for joining us and helping to raise funds for Barnardo’s Charity.
We had a fun packed few days at Eaton Vale this year. All the children were amazing and gave everything a go even if they were initially weary. We packed so much in that the photos below do not do it justice but hopefully you will get a snapshot of the lasting memories we built.
Children enjoyed a dance workshop on Friday run by Miss Sunderland.
A huge well done to our Year 6 netball team who took part in a tournament today for the very first time. The girls showed fantastic grit and determination, winning 1 game and drawing the other 4 – what an achievement! Other coaches took the time to comment on how brilliant their passing, teamwork and communication was – we are very proud!
SESMA joined reception for a martial arts session. Children learned to block, punch, guard and kick. They enjoyed the session and understood that martial arts is a discipline which they only practice during classes.
We had our new bike station installed today, with all the tools needed to maintain and repair bikes. It even includes a foot pump! Our pupils have been trying it out this afternoon.
Today, we entered a Y6 dodgeball tournament at the UEA sportspark. The children played four rounds of games in a group format and after winning the group and the semi final the children were through to the final. They were victorious after winning the sudden death round to win the competition. They showed amazing team work, concentration, grit and determination throughout.
