Arty walk round Millennium Wood

We enjoyed an outdoor learning morning as we walked to Millennium Wood in the village and used nature for our own art projects. Inspired by the work of artist Andy Goldsworthy, we used leaves and sticks to replicate his work before leaving it in the woods. We then wrote a recount about our morning the following day. 

Lion Class 25.9.20

On Friday morning we learnt about Nelson Mandela’s life by Zooming in to a meeting with many other Norfolk primary schools hosted by Chris Lubbe – Nelson Mandela’s bodyguard. It was fascinating to hear his experiences and struggles. The children added a double-page entry in their memory books to reflect on the stories learnt.

Lion Class 11th September

The children have loved being back at school after a long absence. We have been doing activities this week that have helped the children return to their routines. We have established our class values and have worked hard as teams as we have built and re-built relationships. Our particular highlights of the week have been creating silly stories, river crossing with our teams and researching our new house team names. We are excited to use our new ‘Minecraft’ themed reading corner.

Dragons’ Den Presentations

Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a share afternoon as parents came to be ‘the dragons’ in a wonderful presentation of children’s work. The children had designed and made a product that would make the lives of people with disabilities easier in some way. Ideas ranged from braille stationery to grabber devices. All the children were very brave and pitched their ideas well to the dragons. Everyone went away with a deal!

Year 5/6 Science Lesson

Year 5 and 6 had a visit from Mrs Elkins (Science teacher at Litcham High School). She brought in pigs’ hearts for the children to dissect. This was a great follow-on lesson after learning about the heart and the circulatory system in our own Science lessons.
