Y5 Geography visitor

This week Mr Marsh and Dr Richardson came to talk to us about flood defences as part of our geography topic. We have been learning about rivers and this was the perfect end to our topic. We got to experiment with different types of flood defences and even got to build some of our own. A huge thank you to them for giving up their time to share their important work with us.

Y5 Rivers

We launched our ‘What is a River?’ topic in Geography this week by making our very own rivers! We are looking forward to exploring the different parts of a river and exploring river wildlife over the next weeks.

School Council Christmas Bauble Project

Back in November, the School Council decided to buy every child a clear bauble to design and decorate ready for Christmas. Each year group chose their own designs and have been busy over the last few weeks creating them.

In Year 1, children filled their baubles with Christmas sequins and they decorated the outside.

In Year 2, children turned their baubles into reindeer and used them to decorate the Christmas trees in their classrooms!

In Year 3, the children turned their baubles into snow globes, complete with snowmen inside.

In Year 4, the children used lots of glitter and glue to decorate the outside of their baubles.

In Year 5, they used tissue paper and glue to create a textured bauble which they filled with yummy treats!

And finally, in Year 6, the children filled the inside of the baubles with glitter, then used white pen to create patters on the outside.

We think they all look amazing! A great big thank you to the School Council for organising this for everyone.

Y5 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

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.

Making Musicians!

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.

Anti-Bullying Curriculum Day

On Friday 17th November, children across the whole school celebrated their uniqueness by wearing odd socks. The day started with an assembly by the Happiness Heroes, who explained their role in school and upcoming projects they have planned. Back in class, everyone learnt about what bullying is and how to ‘Make a Noise’ about bullying to put an end to it.

KS2 Music

A big thanks to Norwich High School for visiting KS2 music assembly today.

The children participated in a singing workshop before listening to a flute, French horn, clarinet, piano, saxophone, vocal and African percussion recital.

Everyone loved hearing the range of instruments. Thank you!

Y5 Bookbugs and Dragontales

This morning some of our Year 5 children went to Bookbugs and Dragontales and had a great time doing a creative writing project. They selected lots of new books for our new Book Nook, which will be for our Year 5 and 6 children, opening next week.

Y5 Viking Day

Year 5 started Autumn 2 with an exciting Viking Day! We were extremely lucky to handle and explore some Viking artefacts and learn about the Vikings from our visitors. We finished the day by making our own Viking shields, ready for raiding and conquering other lands.
