Sea Life Centre Visit

This week, children in the Nursery and Reception classes visited the Sea Life Centre in Great Yarmouth. The children were given a guided tour so they could learn all about the fish and sea creatures in the centre. They were even allowed to touch a starfish! The trip was highly informative and thoroughly enjoyed by all the children. More pictures of this trip will be published on our Facebook page and in the website news section tomorrow.

Boarders’ Outing

The Saturday trip for the boarders this weekend was to Blickling Hall. They had the opportunity to explore the house and gardens, which were looking beautiful, and, since it was Mother’s Day on Sunday, they looked for gifts. They particularly liked the very cute Egyptian goslings, pictured below, that wandered past them in the grounds.

Banham Zoo

Earlier in March, Years 1 & 2 visited Banham Zoo. The children looked at the differences between animals from different continents and learned how to identify whether they were carnivorous, herbivorous or omnivorous. The picture below shows the children in the sloth enclosure and, above our heads, we were very lucky to see the sloths climbing and eating fruit – a very rare sight!For more photos, please see our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/HethersettOldHallSchool/

Saturday at the Ski Slope

On Friday night, the boarding house held a sleepover and were joined by some pupils from Year 9. On Saturday morning, we all went to the Norfolk Snowsports Club for a tubing session. For those of you who have never seen tubing before, you sit in what looks like a large inner tube and go down a ski slope! Everyone had a great time sliding and spinning down the slope individually and then together. The picture below shows some the students that took part.
