Active Kids vouchers wanted!

Thank you so much  to everyone who has brought in Active Kids vouchers from Sainsburys  this year.  We will be able to swap them for some great sports equipment for use by all age groups.

The deadline is looming for the vouchers and we will be counting ours up and submitting them soon, so please bring any you still have into school by this Friday. The collection box is on the table just outside our Reception, clearly identifiable with the Active Kids branding. Thanks again!

Field trip for ‘Broad-minded’ Year 9

Year 9 enjoyed an interesting and informative day at the Broads National Park on Wednesday for their geography studies. Beginning with a guided boat trip, they learnt about the uses of the Broads, past and present, and the human impact on the environment. Next the girls had a walk round a nature reserve with the conservationist, who explained the work being done to improve the water quality. The afternoon saw the girls in Hoveton looking at the impact of tourism, interviewing members of the public and gathering statistics on pedestrian and traffic counts, land use and environmental quality. Here are the girls with a new friend!

Clara and Ruby’s Hearts for Manchester

Over half term, Clara (Year 9), together with Mum  Mary and sister  Ruby , who is joining us this September in Year 7,  got involved in the campaign to fill Manchester with handmade hearts  as a symbol against terrorism after the attack. Thousands of hearts were sent from all over the world and were distributed in the city on Monday of this week.  Clara made hearts from felt and designed wooden hearts, while  Ruby knitted hers.  The response was incredible as you can see from the campaign’s  Facebook page  #AHEART4MCR
