Very best wishes on your 14th birthday, Darci – have a great day!
The U10 football team rounded off a busy week with a trip to The Old School Henstead on Friday afternoon. Despite a frosty morning, the sun was shining for our first football game of the season. The first half was very even with both schools having attempts on goal but neither being able to find the net. In the second half Henstead became more dominant in their attacking play and, despite some valiant defending from Sam and Alexander, they proved to be just too strong. The boys had a wonderful afternoon and Player of the Match was awarded to Maxim for his efforts in midfield.
As reported earlier, Mrs Bird made last week a special “Pets’ Week” for her Year 1 class, with the children invited to bring in their small pets and share information about how they care for them.
We had visits from Amy’s six-month old guinea pig ‘Angel’ and Sophia’s hamster ‘Stripe’ – and India’s two Russian White hamsters even had a sleepover in the classroom! India told us about what they ate and where they came from and showed us how they enjoy their ladder, ball and making their nest. India also has a rabbit called Marble, who is in the picture montage below. Also pictured are Scarlett with her lovely dog, Arlo, Mrs Bird’s Norwegian Forest cat, Oakley and Amy with her dog.
There may have been minus-something temperatures when we arrived at school this morning, but by lunchtime it was warm enough for some of the children to play outside without their coats!
The U14 and U16 netball teams played at home yesterday afternoon versus City of Norwich School. Both teams won convincing victories, with scores of 10-5 and 18-3 respectively.
Player of the Match for the U14 team was Sophie S, who was on fire when shooting! Alice and Mia shared the title in the U16 match. A wonderful start following the Christmas break, well done!
