Welcome to Lions Class. We use our name from the Bible story of Daniel and the Lions Den, and as a class we strive to follow the bravery, hope and trust learnt from this story. We are a mixed Year 4/5/6 group and we enjoy our spacious classroom as we learn and collaborate together. Our room is well-equipped with computers, a calm reading and reflection corner and an art area for crafts and cooking. Our teacher uses a large interactive touch screen board for our learning, and in our own outdoor area we have a brand new table tennis table that we freely use at break times. And, of course, we have to squeeze in Mr Good’s guitars as well!

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.
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 … Read more
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 … Read more
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.
4 of our Y6s took part in the Northgate Primary Maths Challenge this morning.
