We were recently visited by the author Jack Trelawny. He talked to children in years 2 to 6 about how stories are everywhere and that you can start to write about real life experiences. We loved the funny pictures he showed us and enjoyed hearing him read from one of his books. Some of the children bought copies of his books and are loving reading them.
We had a fabulous day when British BMX World Cup Freestyler Emma Finnegan came into school to share her inspirational journey and future aspirations with everyone on Tuesday 30th April. We hope the children enjoyed her visit and were suitably inspired.
Thank you to everyone who donated 50p for our ‘Wear your p.e./sports kit to school Day’ – we raised £181 which will go towards the ‘Inspire Through Sport’ charity and our school.
In connection with the year 5 topic on space, on Thursday 9th May, Heartsease hosted a ‘pop-up planetarium’. We were joined by Year 5 classes from all the other trust schools. Children were taken on a spectacular journey through our solar system, from the Sun way out to Neptune, and beyond. Most children had not been in a planetarium before and they loved the experience, as well as learning a great deal. We’d like to thank Miss Williams at Lingwood for arranging this exciting event.
Last week some of our Year 4 children were able to take part in a brilliant Opera Workshop held at Sprowston Junior School.
This links to our work with Into Opera, who have been composing and writing an Opera with our pupils in year 4.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed our visit from Fiona Barker, author, on Monday; she did reading assemblies and activities with all the children. See the full article in the EDP at:-
Anti-Bullying Week 2018: Choose Respect
- The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2018 is: ‘Choose Respect’ and Anti-Bullying Week runs from 12th – 16th November
- We will hold Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week again on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week (12th November)
- The aims of this week are to help children and young people, school staff, parents and other professionals who work with children to understand:
The definition of respect
That bullying is a behaviour choice
That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online
- For online support, please visit www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk or www.bullying.co.uk for further information and advice.
Many thanks to all who helped organise and run the summer fete on Saturday (7th June). The weather was not kind to us, but the hard work that had gone into the event was obvious to all.
Many thanks also to those who braved the weather to attend and support the fete.
