Year 5 and 6 from Stibbard and North Elmham have had a great day today visiting Cromer and Overstrand. Whilst there they learnt about the important work that the RNLI does to keep us safe at sea. They took part in a drama showing the bravery of Henry Blogg and they learnt about the erosion taking place along our coastline.
What a fabulous day we have had at Norwich Cathedral today. The Cathedral has been running a whole week of activities for the children of Norfolk about different people found in the bible and the messages they bring to us. Some children experienced dance, others had a musical experience, arts and crafts, relaxation… the day ended with a special service which involved the children and the many volunteers who had run the week.
Year 6 were totally amazing, they were engaged enthusiastically in the activities and were working alongside children from other schools in their groups. They were well behaved, polite and responsible. Every time I caught the eye of one of them they beamed and said how much fun they were having. Thank you Year 6 for making me exceptionally proud, big thanks to Mrs Bircham and Mr V for accompanying us and making the day so special.
Yesterday Year 3 and 4 children from Stibbard and North Elmham went to Houghton Hall to explore the installations of Richard Long. We had an absolutely brilliant time creating our own pieces of art at the same time as getting to know the children from our partner school. A big thank you to the staff at Houghton Hall for giving us this great experience and to the parent helpers who generously gave of their time.

Today I took the children to Gresham’s Preparatory School so they could take part in the WCET Music Hub’s Sinfonia concert.
The children were absolutely fantastic and had a wonderful day. I was proud to be with such a talented, confident and happy bunch of children. They sang, danced, played their violins and used percussion instruments alongside other children.
All were amazed to be inside such an interesting ‘tent’ and join in with a performance on such a large scale.
Well done Year 4 and also to Mrs Clinton for all her hard work this year, getting the children to such a high standard with their violin playing.
