On Thursday 14th September, year four, five and six were treated to an exciting percussion performance by talented musician Tony Parkinson who has also performed six times for HRH Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Variety Performance.
Children and staff were treated to performance on a range of instruments including and electric drum kit which sounded just like a real one. Everyone was enthralled by the 'guess the intro' game and enjoyed perfromances which pupils could take part in.
"It was so fun to watch."
"I liked taking part."
We are encouraging healthy eating for lunchtime at Wayland Junior. Some of the children who have a balanced and nutritious lunchbox or eat all their school meal are awarded a sticker.
Have a look at these yummy muffins that are full of goodness. Why not try making them with your children and pop a couple in their lunchbox!
On Thursday 14th June a very excited group of Year 3 children made their way to the Time and Tide museum in Great Yarmouth.
We had an action packed day trying to save the Icenis from the Romans. We all had to learn how to fight like a Roman and an Iceni. We then learnt more about how Roman women lived and also listened to an Iceni story teller.
At the end of the day we had to put our fighting skills to the test as we had to scare the Romans away with a special chant and horns. As the children chanted, the Romans cowered and had no choice but to run away.
On Monday 12th June, twelve of our year five children had a fantastic visit to Cambridge to launch the Brilliant Club.
The Brilliant Club project runs for this term and means the children will take part in weekly tutorials with a PhD student before writing a 1000 word essay by the end of term. As a start to this, the children visited Corpus Christi College in Cambridge for the day.
On Friday 19th May, a large group of Year 5 and 6 children, along with many staff and parents, had an amazing day at The Natural History Museum in London.
Just seeing the skyscrapers, London Eye, Big Ben and The Thames from the bus windows was enough to set off squeals of excitement before we even arrived.
During the day, the children were fascinated by various galleries including a life size blue whale, dinosaur skeletons, an earthquake simulator, various gems, volcanoes, biology games and of course the shop!
On Thursday 18th May, pupils travelled all around the world and into space through the wonders of virtual reality (VR) headsets. Google Education offer the opportunity for schools to take part in this project which allows pupils to explore the natural world, ancient monuments and beautiful cities amongst many other fascinating places.
Year 5 children went on a three day residential to Aylmerton Field Study Centre when they returned from their Easter break. This introduction to their new topic on 'Coasts' gave them hands on experience of the North Norfolk coast.
Their time away was filled with visits to Happisburgh and Sea Palling to see the sea defences; a boat ride to Blakeney Point Spit to view the seals; a walk through the mud flats at Blakeney to view the spit; a visit to Cromer museum and a climb up the 170 steps of the Cromer church tower.
Mrs Kaye set the pupils a challenge in assembly which at first seemed almost impossible: put a straw through a potato.
Initially children and staff were sceptical but after many attempts potatoes began appearing with straws through the middle of them.
Millie Johnson said "At first I wasn't sure but after I kept trying it happened."
Mrs Kaye was correct: if you believe; you can achieve!
On Tuesday 28th March, the Kidz Klub team led five workshops based on Easter with our Year 4 children.
They shared the Christian story of Easter and encouraged the pupils to reflect on the meaning for themselves.
The children enjoyed finding out more about the story and building on their RE lessons this term.
