From Wild Animals to Walliams' World

In this section...

Pupils enjoy wild animals, a trip to the Theatre and an occasion for Remembrance.

This week has been filled with very special opportunities and occasions and at each one in turn, the children have behaved impeccably. I am truly so proud of how the pupils conducted themselves at the community Remembrance service on Thursday. It was a highly moving event, with some clear readings and poignant poems. I hope all those in attendance felt the same. Thank you for all the relatives that accompanied us to the memorial. The picture above shows all our children contributed something towards the day with the poppy biscuits created by our Nursery children. 

At the beginning of the week, Year 2 got to handle some wild animals from Banham Zoo and were given a talk about their habitats and how their characteristics made them suit their surroundings. It was eerie to see the hissing cockroaches. Thankfully, there were no tarantulas to snakes. I did double check on their arrival. 

Today, the KS2 children visited the Theatre Royal Norwich to watch a production of the David Walliam's novel, Awful Auntie. They all came back with smiles and tales to tell from their favourite scenes. I have been informed pupil behaviour was tremendous. 

Attendance this week was won jointly by Years 3 and 4, both with 99.33% All classes were above 95%. Keep this up everyone. 

Over the weekend, our Boys' Year 5 & 6 footballers will be pitting their wits against the best of our neighbouring schools. Fingers crossed we can return victorious or at least have shown all those against us what Team Homefield can do on the pitch. 

Next week, we will be raising money for Children in Need. A letter about that should be coming home soon. 

Have a fabulous weekend and remember to stay safe.
