6Y’s Decade Assembly – Thursday 13th February 2020

6Y reminded us of some of the events of the last decade including some dance crazes that might be better forgotten about! They also shared some of their own 10 year challenge photos showing how they have changed over the last decade. Well done to the children for an entertaining and enjoyable assembly!   

Outdoor and Adventure

Year 6 travelled to Hilltop (Norwich) for a week of OAA, this included tree climbing, zip lining, abseiling, rock climbing, orienteering, a beach walk and lots more activities. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children, challenging them to come out of their comfort zone to problem solve, work as a team and to take on leadership roles.

A Star Is Born Years 4-6 – Friday 27th January 2017

Luckily the staff performance was not judged! Thank you to all the staff who helped to organise this event. Nearly £740 was raised in ticket sales which will be put towards buying resources for the children.
