Pirate Activities

Our last morning of adventure - lots of great team work and personal challenge!
A great time was had by all. Thank you to Aylmerton Field Study Centre and the terrific children of Oak Class. 

Mud, mud, glorious (?) mud!

Why is it children like splashing in water and squelching in mud?

The sun shines on Blakeney Point!

A glorious day out on and around Blakeney Point!

Feeling good and eating well!

Meal times were a social event, with the children acting as Table Managers, taking and collecting orders, and clearing up afterwards. Good training! 

Aylmerton residential trip May 2018

A damp start, but the children were too excited to notice! To avoid some of the downpours, we took to the Lifeboat Museum and current lifeboat station.

We are weaving woollen fabric to make into pencil cases for some children in Sri Lanka who have to buy all their equipment inorder to attend school. The school is in an area severely affected by the Boxing Day tsunami. We are writing to the children to share information about our school lives. A big thank you to children in class who did jobs for pocket money to raise the money to put a pencil, pen, rubber and pencil sharpener in each pencil case.
We took advantage of the recent glorious weather to appreciate the flower garden plot and paint our 'impression' of the colours and shapes....
You can hardly tell the difference between the real and the painted tulips!

South Asian Fusion concert

South Asian Fusion and the Norfolk Music Hub - What an amazing spectacle and fantastic performance Oak Class were involved in last night! After two long rehearsal days at the Theatre Royal and the Open in Norwich, topped up by school based practise, the children of Oak Class enthusiastically experienced the cultural delights of music, singing, dance and food of South Asia, run and organised by the Norfolk Music Service. Over 3 evenings, 750 Norfolk primary school children performed to an audience of 1500 adults! We LOVED it and it certainly been a brilliant lead into our next Geography focus, expanding out from Europe into other areas of the world (the climate and features of Equatorial regions) Thank you to all our lovely families who supported their children and came along to enjoy the performance.
