Weasenham Sports Day

June 16th, 2017|

Having had to postpone the Sports Day from last week due to bad weather, we had the most amazing time on Thursday 15th June. The children all ran, skipped, jumped and juggled with their eggs and spoons for their races in the morning. The fun didn’t stop there – in the afternoon the Yr 6 children arranged activities to help fund their Leavers’ trip. This included throwing wet sponges at one of the Yr 6 children, beat the goalie and also a rounders match – including parents, staff and children.

We raised over £300 during the day . Well done and a massive THANK YOU to all involved and those who supported us.

Thank you to everyone who came to support the children on Friday night. We had an excellent evening of traditional sports. We had lots of fantastic comments from our parents such as – ‘This was the best year yet.’ ‘I loved the competitive nature of the sports evening.’ ‘What a great community feel to the evening.’ ‘It was Sportastic!’

Photos and more comments will be put up in school, please come and have a look. Thank you to the PFA for the BBQ and refreshments.

We are rapidly racing up to Easter. The children have had an enjoyable term. At the beginning of March a group of yr 3 and 4 children spent 3 days at Hilltop Outdoor Adventure Centre in Sheringham. All the children had so much fun, they went bug hunting in the woods, built their own campfires, lit them using flints and best of all got to toast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate. Other activities included the Super Swing, zip wire and Vertical Challenge.
As we get ready for the end of term, we will be holding our Rudham Celebration Assembly at the Village Hall on Friday 31st March at 9am and Weasenham Celebration Assembly at All Saints’ Church on 31st March at 1:30pm, please join us if you can. By the time we come back, we will be in full swing for the SAT’s assessments for those in yr 2 and yr 6. We will all be thinking of the children during this assessment time.

What a fantastic week we have had. Both schools have celebrated the Harvest in Church. The Harvest gifts of tins and packets will be sent to the Salvation Army for distribution across the local area.

Some of the children have also visited Houghton Hall ground to explore the outside area. We have been so lucky with the weather.

Children form each school have also taken part in the Cross Country event at Greshams. We are very proud of everyone who took part. Thanks to Mr Suswain for arranging for the children to go and all who transported them.
