Summer Fete Success!

What a fabulous atmosphere at our Summer Fete on Friday.

The sun was shining down on our wonderful school playing field, as children, parents, grandparents and members of the local community took part in all the fun activities offered.

Our brilliant Friends Association worked so hard to make this event a success - well done to all of them! 

Thank you too to all the terrific parents and staff who helped run the stalls on the day.

A lovely sunny morning at Forest School, the children enjoyed playing 'Eagle eyes', building obstacle courses, finding dinosaur bones, making leaf pictures, investigating the wildlife and helping to tidy up the cut grass. We finished the morning quietly reflecting on the session by sitting in a magic spot, silent and still.

Down through the roof

The 'Open the book' assembly was entitled 'Down through the roof'.   Our Key Stage 2 pupils helped to retell the story.  

We heard the story about how a man was lowered through the roof to the floor as his friends could not find a way through the crowds to Jesus.  When they reached Jesus, he laid his hand on his head and told him to stand up and walk.

His friends thought that only God could fix things and talk like that.  They wondered who Jesus was and what he meant but they reached out to Jesus and trusted him to change their lives.    Jesus said, "Which is easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or, ‘Get up and walk’?  As the man got up and walked,  they realised how special Jesus was. 

Christians can embrace change in our lives and by praying for and asking to help us with change can show our trust in Jesus. 



A blustery first morning at Robin Wood for class CMC. The children enjoyed playing a game of 'Eagle eyes', finding some great places to hide in the woodland.

The children then enjoyed going on a leaf scavenger hunt, working together to identify different trees.

                                        Lots of other activities were accessed during the morning.

Wow - Tickets please - all aboard!

Key Stage 1 enjoyed a fantastic day out at the East Anglian Transport Museum as their 'wow' moment to launch the new topic 'Bright Lights, Big City'.  We were so blessed with the weather and we all had such an enjoyable day finding out lots of information which we will explore through this last topic of the year. 

The morning started with a guided tour for each class where we were able to look and visit a variety of vehicles from the last 100 years.  It was a fascinating insight into how transport has evolved over the last century.    

We found out about how roads were made and looked at the steam vehicles, the horse-pulled water tankers and the caravans where the workmen stayed.  We were also able to see inside a 'night-watchmen' which is where workmen would have lived alongside the roads and railways that were being built.  It was amazing to see how small the kitchens were and how uncomfortable the beds looked!

We were all given a ticket for the day which allowed us to go on the trams, the trolley bus and the train.  There were 2 trams - both electrically run - and it was amazing to see how the driver turned the 'frog' around on the top of the tram to change direction.  We enjoyed waiting for the lights to come back on when the reconnection had taken place of the frog. We were also very excited because the back of the seat moved and we could change the direction we were facing too!

Each tram and train we went on we had to hand our ticket in to be punched.

Many old trams and buses have been restored and are also undergoing major refurbishment.

Window shopping - comparing items in Peacock's old shop window and how the objects have changed over time. 

After all this, we had lunch and then we went around in smaller groups to do a treasure hunt of various signs, logs, symbols and vehicles.  We loved doing this and everyone had great fun finding these - some in very secret hidden places!! 

We also were able to have another go on the train, tram or buses.

Thank you so much to all the volunteers at the East Anglian Transport museum for making our day so special.  It was such a great way to launch this next topic and we are looking forward to sharing more work undertaken throughout this topic.  

There will be more photos to come on the website gallery soon. 


Today Nursery took part in a Pyjamarama to raise funds for BookTrust. Our incredibly generous parents and carers helped us to raise over £50 for this wonderful charity, who want every child to experience the warmth, joy and comfort of bedtime reading. We had a great day and didn't let our pyjamas stop us doing anything!

We shared books in our pyjamas

We did gardening in our pyjamas

We played in the sandpit in our pyjamas

We had fun outside in our pyjamas

The staff enjoyed their day in pyjamas too, but sadly there is no photographic evidence of this...
A huge thank you to all our parents and carers for their support.
