Welcome to my Blog!
I aim to update this page as often as possible to keep you up-to-date with new and interesting information about both the schools within the Federation. Posts will consist of text, photos, samples of work and anything else newsworthy!
Goodbye to Year 6
As we say goodbye to our Year 6 children tomorrow, I would like to thank them for all their hard work not only over this year, but since they joined our Academies. They have been an absolute pleasure to have had. They have certainly made us smile!
Good luck at Fakenham, Litcham and Hammonds!
We have had such a busy time recently. The children across both schools have been making the most of our wider curriculum.
The children in Year 5 and 6 from both schools have visited the races in Fakenham for a maths in context day. They had access all areas to the racecourse. A great day was had by all.
The children enjoyed the Royal Wedding – they all dressed up in red, white and blue. At Rudham the children all enjoyed a Wedding Breakfast – many thanks to Miss Stratton for all her wonderful cooking.
We have had guinea pigs visiting the children in Barn Owls Class at Rudham. Many thanks to Mrs Taylor for bringing them in. The Barn Owls have created a display in the main school.
Robins had chick eggs which have hatched, tadpoles, which are growing very quickly. Very soon they will be getting quail eggs! Watch this space for updates.
Some of the children have been learning how to ride their bikes in a careful manner. They are all working very hard and will be taking their tests soon.
This week the children have been taking part in a family fun activity with Lisa Barker from the Claybarn. The children and parents have been learning about hares and painting some. This is all linked to the Go Go Hares which will be in Norwich later this year.
There are many more things planned, these will be reported on later this month.

Following a recent focused review of DNEAT, I am please to post a copy of the letter received by Mrs Edwards, our CEO. Please take time to read this. As you will see DNEAT has been recognised for the hard work they have been putting in to raise standards for the children under their care. This includes the children within our Federation.
Please share their news with your friends and families.
We have subscribed to a new E-safety newsletter. It is a very useful document. I hope that you find it useful. I have attached it to the newsletter tab.
We have had to close both of the Academies today due to the bad weather. It is not safe for either children or staff to travel.
New Screens! On 22nd February – each class and hall had a new Clever Touch Plus screen installed. The staff and children have been very excited by the addition of this high tech screen. Over the next few weeks the staff will have training and will be able to use the screens to their full potential. Watch this space!
Ms Ojelade joined us on 19th February as our new Year 3/4 teacher at Rudham. I would like to welcome her to our Federation.
The children are getting very excited about our trip to France on 22nd March. I am sure you will see photos when we return.
