VR Space Workshop

Year 2 had lots of fun at our VR space workshop. We learnt about most of the planets and got to experience seeing them through a virtual reality headset. Mr King asked us lots of questions and we remembered a lot of facts. Our school colour raffle paid for the workshop and it was so much fun!

Music Assembly Photos

Today we had a musical treat courtesy of the Norfolk Music Hub, as part of their live music week. Five musicians came to deliver a special music assembly, where they talked about their instruments and played pieces of music from a piece composed by Henry VIII to Harry Potter and even Star Wars! The children really enjoyed this experience and the musicians were really impressed with how knowledgeable the children were about music. One child in Year 1 even knew what a tuba was! They were also impressed that all the children in school from Years 2-6 learn the recorder, keyboard and glockenspiel. If your child has been inspired and asks about learning to play an instrument, then please get in touch with Mrs Gittins via the school office email address, as she will be able to point you in the right direction.

Science Week

Here are a few photos to celebrate Science Week. We have been learning about circuits and electricity. It was so much fun finding out how to make the bulb light up! We have also been learning about what plants need to grow. We made some grass heads and caterpillars in the woods and we planted some cress. We put 2 pots in the cupboard (one with water and one without) and 2 on the windowsill (one with water and one without). Check out the photos to see what happened! We can’t wait for our next science unit, which will be all about materials.

Year 2 Trip to Amazona Zoo

Year 2 had a brilliant day at Amazona Zoo! We saw lots of rainforest animals like tapir, capybara, a jaguar, parrots, an anaconda and cute little marmosets. We got to see the tapirs being fed at lunchtime and had a talk about them. We learnt that baby tapirs have spotty fur to use as camouflage, this helps them to hide from predators.We had so much fun! Please take a look at the photos from our day.

Year 2 Residential Trip to Aylmerton Field Study Centre

Year 2 had a brilliant time on their Year 2 residential trip to Aylmerton Field Study Centre. They did lots of team building activities including den building, the zip wire, a twilight walk and a treasure hunt. We had the best time and can’t wait to do it all again next year!

British Science Week

Year 2 enjoyed British Science Week and have been learning about materials. We tested materials to see how we could change them by bending, stretching, twisting and squeezing. We also carried out an experiment to see which materials were waterproof to make an umbrella for Ted (Mrs Green’s teddy!). It was so much fun!


The children wrote letters to persuade companies to stop destroying the rainforest for the production of palm oil.
