Brilliant Hilltop trip for Years 3-6!

Our Years 3-6 pupils returned today from their fantastic residential trip away at Hilltop Outdoor Centre near Sheringham. They took part in so many exciting and challenging activities – from the vertical challenge and climbing wall to toasting marshmallows on camp fires they had made themselves.  On their last morning – today – after a big breakfast they tackled the zip wire (look at the video clip below to see why teamwork is important!) and archery.

Of course, a huge part of the fun was sleeping away from home – for some children this was the first time they had done this. The teachers report that everyone was very good and slept well, with no talking after lights out…but we expect there will be some tired children at bedtime tonight!

Look out for a gallery with more pictures on the blog next week.

Superb first day at Hilltop for Years 3-6!

We have just heard from one of our teachers at Hilltop Outdoor Centre with Years 3-6. She says the children have had a superb first day outdoors making camp fires, playing games and toasting marshmallows, amongst other adventures. Everyone is tired and happy and looking forward to their supper!

Mini garden competition winners!

Mrs Bird’s stall at our fete on Saturday was pretty as a picture adorned with the entries to the seaside-themed miniature garden competition. The gardens were ALL wonderful – well done to everyone who created these masterpieces!

Charlie McN (Year 1)  won first prize for a very inventive coastal scene complete with a surfer crashing in the waves, a small wood fire, fencing and real volcanic rock in a real mini-cacti setting.

Second prize went to Georgina E  (Year 5), for her lolly-stick Wendy house on stilts and fish in a twinkly pool;  third place was  jointly awarded to Agata C-M ( Year 2), with her own scented coral and a sunbather on the beach and Emma F-B (Year 6).

Runners up were Samaara Y (Reception), Harry T (Year 1)  and Charlotte and Chloe T (Years  1 and 4) .


Charlie tells Mrs Bird all about his miniature garden. Well done to Charlie for winning the top prize for his creation!

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….
