Dance Club Performance

Last term, children from Years 1-6 attended a street dance club after school which was run by True Motion Dance Company. At the end of the term, we asked them for a little example of what they had been doing and they treated us to this wonderful performance, attended by a few of their parents too. Well done to all of the children involved in this- I know they were nervous but they performed really well.

Next term, Hannah will be running a Bollywood Dance Club instead. At present, we have spaces to fill with children from Year 2- Year 6. If your child would like to take part, please see the office for a letter.

NSPCC Number Day

On Friday, we held a Number Day in aid of the NSPCC. It all began with a short assembly on who the charity were and what they do, followed by a Maths dance to get the blood pumping! The class teachers were then given their challenges to take away and share with their classes. For the rest of the morning, the infant school children were busy making target numbers using large targets and some accurate throwing, while the junior school were challenged to build a ‘robot’ to catapult a small piece of paper as far as possible. During break time, some children from our school council collected up the money and built the tallest tower they could manage, found out how much it weighed, then finally counted it up.

The day ended with a whole school competition in each school. Careful measurements were taken to establish the overall winners…. Year 6! Well done to all the children who displayed wonderful teamwork skills and determination, and had tonnes of fun too!

Paul Cookson Author Visit

We have been very lucky to have world-famous poet, Paul Cookson, with us over the last two days. He arrived on Tuesday and got us all excited about poetry with some renditions of his most famous poems (including ‘Dad Don’t Dab!’) during an assembly. He then conducted workshops throughout the day with classes in the Junior school, Infant school and Bacton.

Years 4 and 5 were especially excited when he introduced them to a form of Anglo-Saxon and Viking poetry- Kennings. We will be continuing to work on these over the next few days.

Girls Football County Finals

On Saturday, our Year 5 and 6 girls travelled to Attleborough Primary School to compete in the county finals. The first two games were played against the tournament winners and the girls lost 2-0 in both. However, they comfortably won their final two games with a score of 4-0, coming third in the tournament overall. Although we do not progress to the next stage, we were SO proud of these young ladies who were brimming over with dedication and determination. Getting to these finals in the first place, was a wonderful achievement- 3rd best girls football team in Norfolk!

Reasoning and Problem Solving – Jan 18

Wednesday 17th January 2018

On Wednesday 17th January we held our termly Mathemagican Morning which focussed on reasoning and problem solving.  Lots of ideas of games and activities were shared with parents to aid them in supporting their children at home.

We had great time playing a range of games before parents spent time in class with their children.

Christmas Celebrations

The children have had a fantastic last two days of term celebrating everything Christmas!

On Monday, we all enjoyed our Christmas dinner which was delicious!  With full bellies, we walked to Mundesley church to perform our Christmas carol concert to parents and carers.  The children sang beautifully, recited the message of Christmas and even enjoyed a ‘workout’ courtesy of Reverend Andrew!  Thank you to everyone who was able to join us.

Dance Club Performance

On a Thursday evening, these children from Years 2-6 attend a dance club with Kelly from True Dance School. They were a little too shy to perform in an assembly but, I hope you’ll agree, they have done a fantastic job of practicing and performing this festive dance routine over the last 5 weeks. They should be very proud of themselves!

Kelly begins maternity leave after Christmas but her dance club will continue. There are just a couple of spaces left so please see Mrs Dugdale if you are interested.

Well done everyone!

Sportshall Athletics Qualifiers

On Friday 24th November, a team of 20 children from Years 5 and 6 went to Sportspark, Norwich, to take part in the qualifiers for Sportshall Athletics. We had many successes and came away in fourth place. Well done to all of the children involved who had a brilliant day competing for their school.
