Cricket Day

Our class took part in a cricket engagement day. We got to take part in a game of cricket playing with an oversized ball to help practise our batting skills. One half of the class got to practise their fielding skills. It was a lot of fun!

KS2 Dodgeball at UEA SportsPark

Children from both 5/6 classes attended the KS2 dodgeball competition at the UEA SportsPark. The children played incredibly well and showed excellent sportsmanship throughout the event. The children won several games and managed to finish 6th overall.

Remembrance Service 2023

It was proud day for All Saints as the whole school held their Remembrance Service in All Saints Church, Stibbard and then at The War Memorial. Year 5 and 6 led the service with Noah taking the lead. We had poems and prayers as well as a song. We were very grateful to Rev Sally who officiated. 

At the War Memorial we heard the Roll of Honour and held a two minute silence as we remembered those who had fought and died in the war.

Year 5 and 6 spent time at the War grave of John Thompson, he died of his injuries once he had returned from the war. 

We then returned to the church to look at the Remembrance display properly, we were able to read further about the people whose names are on the memorial.  

It was lovely to have so many parents and a few villagers joining us for this occasion. 

All Saints website Poppy Appeal

Year 6 will be in charge of the Poppy Appeal this week, they will be standing by the year 6 classroom at the start of school and during break time.  Can we please suggest a minimum donation of 50p for the snap bands, keyrings, bands and anything else in the box? The poppies can be a donation of your choice. If you have a safety pin at home please attach the poppy to your child. The sticky poppies are not great at sticking!

Please send your child with their donation safely in a named envelope. 

We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the war memorial on Friday at 10.55am. 

Friday at Kingswood

We are now all safely home. Our last day comprised of two activities before we had lunch. One of the activities was Bushcraft – Lighting a fire. The children showed great patience using a flint to light their fires. We also had groups abseiling as well as some experiencing the night line activity where the children had to lead each other around an obstacle course! There was a lot of trust , as well as a lot of giggles.

Well done to all the children, many of them learnt new skills from making their beds with a duvet cover to overcoming their fear of heights. A lot of compassion was shown as we saw children helping each other and perseverance as they strove to succeed. Many of the Kingswood Staff commented on the good manners shown by many children, this always make us proud.

Thursday at Kingswood

We have had a full on day with so many activities. The children have enjoyed building a shelter, puzzle games, abseiling, night line and a huge camp fire this evening.

They have worked well together, encouraged one another and many have really impressed us with their determination to overcome fears.

There will be more photos but for now here is a taster of what has been achieved.

Kingswood Residential year 5/6 children

We have arrived and already completed our first activities. All the children are happy and a little wet due to the continuous rain!

Despite the weather we have been very active outside. The children have enjoyed either experiencing the climbing wall, aero ball or taking part in problem solving activities.

We had a lovely dinner this evening before completing a scrap challenge of designing costumes for a catwalk. The children worked in teams, we were really impressed with so many groups who accepted the challenge and created beyond expectations.

Year 6 Electrical Games

The class put their science knowledge to the test when designing and making an electric game. First they did some market research amongst the infant classes to inform their design. They then used isometric paper to design a 3D plan of their game. After that they made a net out of paper as a prototype to check their measurements. Then they made a net out of card, strengthening it with corrugated card before decorating the box. Next came the tricky part: making the circuit so the light lit up or the buzzer buzzed. Much perseverance was needed. Successful products were then evaluated and tested on the infants who seemed to thoroughly enjoy the games.
