Yesterday we welcomed visitors from a range of companies to help host our annual careers fair. Year 6 pupils got to ask questions to different professionals including: a nurse, a midwife and an engineer, to name but a few! Thank you so much to everyone who gave up their time to help our pupils find out more about future career options.
Year 3 went on a brilliant trip to Norwich Castle this week. They consolidated and deepened their learning on the Ancient Egyptians.
All children represented the school well and were safe, ready and respectful. The Year 3 team were very proud of everyone!
Year 6 had a great time visiting the Time and Tide Museum to round off their topic work on World War Two. They travelled back in time to 1941 when Great Yarmouth was in the thick of the action as a ‘front line town’. They Discovered how the war affected people on the home front and met an ARP warden where they experienced an air raid and quickly had to get into a Morrison shelter. They learnt how to make-do-and-mend with a 1940s housewife and took a look in her home. They visited a shopkeeper who had the children rationing food and even making and trying powdered mayonnaise and carrot sandwiches. And to top it all off, they had bayonet training with a Home Guard soldier. We were so impressed by their curiosity, knowledge and how well they represented QH. Take a look at how brilliant their evacuee costumes were too!
Some of us in Year 5 had the opportunity to visit OVA to watch the dress rehearsal for their Christmas production of ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!’. We all were wowed by the amazing acting and dancing skills of the cast and were astounded when the car actually flew! When we got back to school, we sang our own rendition of the song to the office staff! Thank you to OVA for inviting us.
Year 3 enjoyed learning all about advent at Norwich Cathedral this week.
They were able to hear the Christmas story as well as complete craft activities!
Thank you for having us!
Some KS2 pupils went with Miss Peek and Miss Forrest to Norwich Cathedral for a music recital this afternoon.
They were able to enjoy a short concert featuring piano, french horn and violin. The children heard a range of music and were even able to ask questions.
Thank you to Norwich School for hosting.
Year 3 were presented with dictionaries today from the Rotary Club in their year group assembly. The children are able to take these home to support their learning.
We would like to thank the generosity of the Rotary Club. We can’t wait to see how the children use them!
Year 6 had a wonderful morning in the sunshine at the Orchard today. They were able to fix the tree labels they made last year directly onto the steel mesh of the tree guards using zip ties through pre-drilled holes. They also participated in a ‘hands on’ conservation work activity making bee hotels and signs to welcome the bees! Children then had a tour of the site and were given some background information on the conservation work that has been going on in the park. Thank you to the volunteers who facilitated the visit, the children had a really great time and it was a lovely way to complete the project started by last year’s Year 6 children who planted the trees in the Summer term of 2022!
Congratulations to the Year 5 and 6 writers who are now officially published authors! A group of our UKS2 children participated in a project in collaboration with The Southbank Centre, in London, to write a chapter of a novel called ‘Rewilding Dream’ alongside authors Sita Brahmachari and Dominique Palmer, illustrator Lucy Farfort and over 2,500 children from other schools in the county. The story challenged important environmental concerns including pollution and climate change. Today their achievements were celebrated at the Norwich regional performance at Norwich Puppet Theatre. Children all received a copy of the finished book and quickly found their names in the list of contributors! As well as this, they had an illustrating masterclass! A huge well done to all for your efforts – lots of grit and determination was shown throughout the writing process!
On Thursday we went on our school trip to Gressenhall.
We met Cinderella, Jack, Griselda, the Wicked Witch and the Curator. We enjoyed helping Griselda and Cinderella with their chores, searching for the magic bean with Jack, making potions with the Witch and even going on a tractor ride.
At the end we found all the objects and finally fixed the magical museum.
The children then wrote about their trip.
