Cross Country Finals 2019

Billy, Esme and McKenzie had a fun, windy day out at Holkham Hall for the Norfolk Cross Country finals.

 

After warming up, stretching and a pre-race walk all of the finalists did very well:

McKenzie Reynolds came in 20th place.

Esme Cooper came in 7th place.

Billy Gutteridge came in 46th place.

 

Miss Pagett, Miss Ingram, Esme's Dad and Billy's Mum all enjoyed cheering on the finalists and all of the other racers on the day.

 

Well done!

Wayland Cup Cross Country 2018

Wayland Cup Cross Country 2018

This year’s Cross Country has been another major success for the pupils of WJAW.  We had 47 children across the school taking part in the Wayland Cup which took place on the 7th November at the High School. 

To improve levels of fitness children across the school undertook training session on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes to get ready for the Wayland Cup Tournament.

This most definitely paid off.

 Wayland Junior Academy runners came 2nd in the Wayland Cup. 

National Fitness Day!

On the 26th September Wayland Junior Academy Watton joined in the UK's largest physical activity celebration. Children and staff came to school in PE kit or sports wear to take part in National Fitness Day.

The children and staff participated in regular brain breaks throughout the day, then at lunch time everyone took part in a mile walk, jog or run around the school field. Thank goodness the sun was shining!

The Big Sing

Staff and pupils had a thoroughly enjoyable day out together participating in the Big Sing. Blessed with beautiful weather, 260 excited children piled into coaches in the morning of May 3rd in anticipation of the big day ahead.

 

We had all been preparing for months in advance, learning songs, practising harmonies and even some dance choreography. It was fantastic to finally get to showcase our hard work with hundreds of other schools from all across Norfolk.

 

Egyptians at Norwich Castle

On Friday 27th April, Year 3 visited Norwich Castle. We had a great day taking a step back in time to explore life as an Ancient Egyptian. We were lucky enough to handle real artifacts, see a really mummy and make our own Egyptian jewellery. It was exciting to travel to the Castle Museum on buses and enjoy a day out as a year group.
