Fabulous Fete!

So many visitors commented on the lovely, friendly atmosphere at our fete today – it really was a wonderful day and,  with the sun shining warmly for most of the time, the last-minute rain didn’t dampen our spirits! Thanks to the PA for organising such a great event, and thanks to all who came – we hope you all had a great time! We think the pictures say it all….

Our fun-packed fete is here at last – it’s tomorrow from 11am-3pm!  It’s been all go at school today for members of our hardworking Parents Association who have been busily setting up tables for the stalls and sorting the tombola and raffle (there are some AMAZING prizes!), as well as setting up equipment for the barbecue and various attractions. Don’t forget to tell all your friends to drop in – there’s fun for all the family, and it’s free!

Seniors entertain at Spring Recital

On Wednesday evening, parents, staff and friends were treated to a programme of accomplished solo, choral and orchestral pieces from some of our senior pupils. From Faure to Take That and from Strauss to a Spoonful of Sugar, the varied programme had plenty to please and gave pupils an opportunity to showcase their musical talents.

Three Cheers for The Big Sing!

Years 1-6 had a fantastic time on a warm and sunny day at the Norfolk Showground yesterday for The Big Sing! We were there nice and early and were given the very front row space. There were more than 9,000 pupils and teachers there from lots of schools so we were lucky to be so close to the stage!

Enjoy the gallery for pictures and the unfolding story in captions…

And today we saw a picture of ourselves in the papers!

Practise for The Big Sing!

Getting excited about next Thursday’s Big Sing – now at the Norfolk Showground rather than at Carrow Road as originally announced. All our Years 1-6 pupils will be taking part and we hope you’ve all been practising at home as well as with Mrs Greene! We will be leaving school at 9.45am and travelling by coach to the venue. Children should wear their school uniform, please. We will return to school at approximately 1.15pm; packed lunches will be provided for the children. They may bring a small snack with them if they wish. parents – if you purchased spectator tickets they will still be valid for
the Showground. We’ve been advised that tickets are now sold out.
