Prep trips and visits round up!

Year 8 Harford Manor Visit

Last Thursday, we played host to our friends from Orange Class, from Harford Manor School in Norwich who visited us for the first time this year, and for the first time since before COVID.

Their visit was in response to our visit to their school, back in February where we played ‘Bag a Ball’ (similar to basketball) indoor Curling and writing about each other. This time, however, thanks to Mr Martin, the whole of our Year 8 played some catching and throwing games in the Sports Hall, along with using the ever popular parachute, quite a giggle with so many holding onto it! Afterwards, everyone went up onto the balcony to make a themed expression hat that they could take away, following some refreshments.

All seemed to enjoy themselves on the day and we look forward to seeing them again later in June where we hope to hand over this year’s outdoor, environmental well-being toys that the Year 8s have been building in the DT Department. Pupils had also visited Harford Manor the week before, where they began the design of these multi-sensory tools.

Once again, a huge thanks to Mr Martin for his support last Thursday and to all of Year 8 who engaged with our guests so admirably.

Year 6 Tower of London Trip

On Friday 6th May,  Mr Sayer led Year 6 on a fascinating trip to the Tower of London where they took in the sights of the crown jewels, learning how they have been protected by the Tower of London since the 1600s.  After a picnic lunch, (featuring a jam sandwich heist by a rascal raven!) they headed to the White Tower, to see the impressive collection of Royal Armouries, including those of King Henry VIII, followed by a tour of the Bloody Tower.

A highlight for all was seeing the world-famous Beefeaters!

Year 3 Pensthorpe Trip

Last Friday, Year 3 visited Pensthorpe Natural Park as a part of their “Our World” topic unit. In the morning children showed off their knowledge of plants and fossils, including some impressive facts about dinosaurs. After a picnic in the sunshine, the children went on a walk to explore the beautiful grounds while keeping their eyes peeled for special species. The day concluded with a treat, feeding the many ducks that inhabit the park. Year 3 had an amazing day learning and playing outside.
