10 May Ryburgh Road Closure

Peelings have confirmed, that for today, they fully expect to be able to drop off at all 3 bus stops in Ryburgh this afternoon. If because of the emergency closure you have arranged for your child to be picked up from school, but you’d now like them to go home on the bus, please contact the school office and let them know.

Ryburgh Road Closure 13-17 May

Dear Parents/Carers,

There is a scheduled road closure through Great Ryburgh starting on Monday and a diversion will be in place. This will affect Ryburgh children and those who normally transit through the village on their way to school.

For those Ryburgh children who travel to school by bus, Peelings will operate a single pick up (8.10 am) and drop off point at Highfield Close.

We have written to County and asked if the road reopens early, we are informed so that we can work with Peelings to ensure that the 3 Ryburgh stops are reintroduced as soon as possible.

Mr B.

Y6 visit to the Aviation Academy

Yesterday, the Year Six children travelled to the Aviation Academy in Norwich to take part in a series of workshops focusing on STEM activities (science, technology, engineering and maths)!

We learned about the four main forces that act on an aircraft and how it stays in the air; we used coding to direct a robot buggy around an extremely complicated maze; we designed and constructed satellite towers; built shelter structures using only paper as a building material and met a whole host of inspiring and interesting people who use science, technology, engineering and maths everyday as part of their profession.

During the day the children had to work collaboratively in a number of different teams and work under pressure against the clock. Mrs Cockburn, Mr Bushby and I were delighted at the way teams worked together. They all displayed good communication skills and really supported each other. Many of the staff at the academy spoke to us about how impressed they were with the children’s attitude, determination and team spirit. We are exceptionally proud of all of them. Well done Year Six!
