On Wednesday 11th July, we had the privilege of visiting Cecil Gowing Infant School. We planned for them to have a magical teddy bears’ picnic.
We really enjoyed spending time with the children, getting to know them and sharing the lovely experience with them. We really did enjoy planning this event for the children and were so impressed with their manners and kindness towards us and each other.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon.
We have great pleasure celebrating the achievement of two students, Emily Grover and Connor Stout who successfully entered work into the The Norfolk Art & Design Competition 2018.
The Competition celebrates creative student talent from sixth forms and colleges across Norfolk.
Congratulations to all pupils nominated for Star of the Week for the Summer 2 Term, 2018.
The nominations were made by the teachers and members of staff for exceptional effort, attitude, work or progress. These names will be entered into a half term draw to win vouchers.
Well done and keep up these excellent standards
I travelled across to Drachten in the Netherlands on Wednesday 27th June. I left Norwich at 6am and travelled by coach and ferry, arriving at 10pm. We camped outside the sportshall in tents and slept on army beds which I found reasonably comfortable!
Thursday consisted of the official opening ceremony where teams were in two minds whether to run onto the pitch or walk when their names were announced. England walked on whereas Catalonia ran on.

These keen talkers had a series of morning activities to help their reasoning, providing evidence to back up a point and listening and response skills. This included playing Ma Ma Moo Election, a game where you have to get elected varying tone and pitch but only using the words ‘Ma, Ma, Moo’! It’s amazing how much you can convey using pitch, tone and body language!
We learnt about the Extended Mace format for debating and in the afternoon had a chance to put our skills into practice! There were two motions:
This summer, your challenge is to read a book – or several books – that you really enjoy.
Reading is an amazing way to spend some of the summer holiday – it can be relaxing, satisfying, rewarding (and it’s great for your ability to learn).
In this downloadable booklet, write down the books that you are challenging yourself to read. You can also pick up a copy of the booklet from the library.
Share this information with your parents – they might even be interested in reading with you, or even sponsoring you.
When you come back to school, hand in your booklet to the school library – and join in the Autumn book groups if you like.
