Governor Monitoring – Educational Visits

An excited but calm group of children from Years 3 & 4 boarded the bus and showed the importance of the preparation time put in by the class teachers. During the journey to Houghton Hall there were lots of excited conversations about the trip and meeting children from North Elmham School and the behaviour was very good.
On arrival at Houghton Hall the children were split into three groups each with children from both schools. All had name badges as this was the first joint trip and the children started to make friends during the morning activities. These included, using words to describe a dream, written in a spiral; finding words to express their surroundings and making art from these words using letters on slate.
Following lunch there was time to play before a treasure hunt in the Walled Garden. There were small groups with children from each school, each group working well together as they sped around the large and fascinating gardens looking for the pictures on their sheets.
The day ended with lots of waves and a new sense of friendship and partnership from the children.
