Everyone enjoyed their stay and really participated throughout the week. We have a very full itinerary from beach walking on the Norfolk coast observing the erosion and sea defences to rock pooling ,boating on the Norfolk Broads and being pirates for the day.

The children learn to work as a team by improving their communication skills ,encouragement and determination to complete all of their tasks to their best ability. This years class really excelled in their participation in all of the activities.

They made scary and convincing pirates while they managed the low ropes and the bosuns chair. They also enjoyed their late night walk in the forest discovering the activities of the local bats using sonar and all of their map reading activities.

 

The children were busy from dawn to beyond dusk including swimming at the local pool with the wave machine and flume. Needless to say they were keen for their breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Aylmerton kitchen certainly doesn’t disappoint us as the food is plentiful and delicious.

They have come back to school raring to go and quite grown up . Well done Year 6

 

Green fingered helpers

The year 6 children who did not go to Norfolk this week have worked amazingly hard all week but particularly this morning. George, Milly, Reece and Nathan did a sterling job helping Mrs Bradshaw in the school garden and dell today. Well done for all your hard work and determination.

On Wednesday 26th June, Mr Crispin, a local magistrate visited year 5 and 6. We set up a ‘court’ and held a trial.

We took the parts of the defendant, lawyers, witnesses and magistrates. It was a very fun morning and we also learned lots about the law in England.
