Year 3 Snowsports Trip

Year 3 went to the Norfolk Snowsports Club today for taster session in skiing and tubing.  They all had a wonderful time!

Year 5 Cluster Multi Skills Festival

On Wednesday 4th May, Year 5 made us exceptionally proud when running a cluster multi skills festival.  The children have worked in small groups during their PE sessions, focusing on leadership skills and have executed their knowledge and skills wonderfully, delivering a very successful morning of fun.  Thank you to all the schools who attended our event and to all participants! 

Year 5 Planetarium Visit

Year 5 & 6 were lucky enough to have a visit from an exceptionally knowledgeable man, Mr Green, last week.  He bought his planetarium and set it up in the hall and we had a great session learning about the constellations, the aurora (Northern Lights) and we were even lucky enough to hold a fallen piece of a meteorite, which was even older than Earth!

Following this, we wrote letters to Mr Green to say thank you very much and let him know our favourite part of the experience!

Broadland Cluster Rugby Day

A selection of 10 pupils from year 5&6 at St John’s had a really wonderful time at the Broadland Cluster Rugby Day at North Walsham Vikings Rugby Club on 30th March 2022. The day began with some basic skills sessions designed to teach rugby’s basic skills – passing, evasion, defence, match structure and rules.  After lunch the children played inter-school tag rugby matches. Great fun was had by all.  Thank you and well done to those who attended and represented the school.  Miss Riley

Year 5 learn about Space

Year 5 have had fantastic fun learning about Space this half term.  We have finished with a blast!  On 29th March, we had a DT day! The day was filled with fun; learning about the history of space flight, designing and creating our very own rockets, which we launched in the afternoon.  The ‘engines’ of our rockets were a mix of bicarbonate soda and vinegar, which propelled our rockets into the sky!

Year 3 Volcanoes

Year 3 has been learning about Natural Disasters this term and today we created our own erupting volcanoes. We learnt about chemical reactions and how there can be many substances that when put together cause a reaction. It was really fun!

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!
