Summer Term 2022

Termly Overview

Trip to Thetford Forest and Go Ape

On Wednesday 8th June, we visited High Lodge at Thetford Forest. The morning was spent having fun on the play equipment and after lunch, we went on Go Ape. For some, it was the first time and even though some didn't finish the course, they all gave it their best. We had a fabulous day and even getting wet at the end of the day didn't spoil it!

Art Competition


The children have enjoyed taking part in the whole School art competition.

Their challenge was to create a painting without using a brush. They tried out lots of different objects: card, spatulas, sponges, straws and many more. All of the children submitted an entry and four were chosen to go forward to the final. Congratulations to Elesha, Chloe, Ayesha and Tia who were the class winners.

On Thursday, we celebrated World Book Day with some quizzes, lots of reading and a craft session where the children had one hour, coloured paper and felt pens to make a book character out of a cardboard tube. Well done everyone - you rose to te challenge magnificently and your entries were fabulous. Congratulations to our three winners, Maisie, Lexie and Tia and to Florence and Cleo who were the winners of the book quiz.

This Week in Otter Class....

We have finished our Carousels! The children worked so hard to get them working, showing true resilience and they were very proud of their efforts. They will now be judged by Michael Faraday himself (aka Mr Dixon). Here are some videos of our working carousels.

William Morris


We have printed designs using William Morris as our inspiration. William Morris was an influential designer in Victorian times. He started to design wallpaper when he was unable to find any he liked when decorating his own house. His designs were inspired by nature and were very popular with those who had moved to the city and missed the countryside.

Morris used blocks to print his wallpaper using a different block for each colour. You can follow the link below to see a video of how his wallpapers are still printed today. We drew flowers and leaves from observation and made a printing tile. We printed in 3 or 4 stages leaving each stage to dry before applying the next colour. We made our designs into a waistcoat for William Morris. Which design would you choose?

Class of 2020 Leavers' Presentation

     Otter Blog (most recent first) :      

Week commencing 7th October.


Wow! What a busy week. Most of the children have completed their Cycling Proficiency training over two days. Thank you to the parents, relatives and siblings who volunteered to help. In addition, they acted as guides for new parents who were looking around the school during our Open Morning. Everyone was most impressed by their politeness and their enthusiam for their school.

On Tuesday, we had a lesson in Skateboarding from Rubicon and everyone agreed that it was awesome!

Several children represented the school on Wednesday at Tag Rugby at Wayland School and came back clutching medals and a shiny cup.

In between, we have learned how to use a formal method of long division and written about the character of Tip from 'Street Child'.


Skateboarding 8.10.19

Autumn Term 2019


Otters are learning about The Victorians, in particular about how the lives of children changed in Victorian times.


We are reading 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty which tells the story of Jim Jarvis who inspired Barnardo to set up his children's refuge. We are using this to study themes, settings and characters. The pictures below show our freezeframe drama in which we thought about what the characters would be feeling at a particular point in the story. 



In maths, we have been reading and writing larger numbers and are now honing up our calculation skills.



We have researched some of the important discoveries in electricity  and are making circuits and drawing them using the correct symbols.
