Budding engineers of the future!

Last week 8 children took an exciting trip to the International Aviation Academy in Norwich to take part in an engineering competition.

Over the term children in years 1 and 4 have been making vehicles during their DT lessons. The children had different design briefs and the most successful cars within each class were invited to compete against other schools.

We were so excited when they returned to learn that Kensley and his partner Ethel had won! Huge congratulations to them and a big well done to all the children who competed!

A plea for tubes!

Please could Year 1 have any cardboard tubes that you are about to pop into your recycling bin?

We need as many as possible for a whole school activity next week.

Many thanks

Inspiring future book worms!


Opening up the world of books is a gift that will forever give back and there is something very special about sitting with a child and listening to them read. For those of us with older children it is a time that we can quickly forget.

The library is now run with a small team of volunteers, today we were lucky to have two of us, one to run the library and one to support individual reading with Year 1.

The moment a child finishes a book, a page or even just remembers a word is wonderful to be involved in. Supporting reading as a volunteer is a vital role, one that I know has a direct effect on children’s education. 

I look forward to spending more time both in the library and supporting reading – if you fancy joining our little team, even for just a couple of hours a week please come and say hi or contact the office.
