Year 1 planting bulbs

Our Year 1 pupils have each planted an amaryllis bulb and we can’t wait for them to burst into bloom and find out what colours everyone has!  Look out for pictures later in the term when we will also hear what the children have been learning about how plants grow.

Saying farewell to our ‘gappies’

By the time this post is seen by Courtney, Ashley and Izzy, the snow will be a distant memory to them, as they have now returned to their homes in Australia and South Africa. The end of term meant saying fond farewells to this lovely trio, who, as our gap year tutors, were so much a part of our school family and helped in so many different ways in the year they spent with us.  We wish the girls every success and happiness for the future!

Let it snow!

It’s snowing here today and Year 1 went outside at lunchtime to have a good look and feel! Our lovely gap year tutors from Australia and South Africa were quite impressed, too.

Buttons’ football training

Buttons, one of our well-travelled Hethersett bears, was very excited to be spending this half term break with Oliver (Year 1).  Here they are last week at football training.  I wonder if either of them will be playing in the Norwich v Arsenal cup match this evening?!

Persephone’s Pomegranate in Year 1!

After Mr Crump’s recent assembly on Persephone and the pomegranate seeds,  Mrs Bird decided to buy a pomegranate for the children to look inside. They drew the outside first, then a cross section to reveal the beautiful seeds within. Finally, as a treat,  they tasted the seeds at the end of the lesson!

Year 1 doing a spot of pond-dipping!

Our Year 1 pupils spent some exciting time exploring our eco-friendly pond during their science lesson yesterday. It is amazing how many different creatures make this their home! The sorts of things we expect to find there include water boatmen, spotted damselflies and pond skaters – and if we’re lucky, frogs!
