Children said:

"It was so fun to watch."

"I liked taking part."

Brilliant Club visit to Corpus Christi College

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.

Natural History Museum

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!

Aylmerton Residential

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.
