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!
I hope that you have all settled back into school. Our Reception children are all in full time and enjoying their new learning experiences. So far we have had children taking part in educational visits to Houghton Hall, to make use of their outside space and KS2 children from Weasenham have joined Eagle Owls class from Rudham on a trip to Wells-next-the-Sea linking to their Norfolk topic.
Children from Weasenham are taking part in a weekly Forest Schools session. In the Spring Term the children from Rudham will also be taking part in this.
On October 17th both schools will be having a Team GB athlete visit. Once I have made the final arrangements I will be able to let you know more information. However for now we’ll all be guessing as to who it might be!
As you can see, we have already had a busy start to the new school year. We are also in the final stages of organising the Yr 3/4 residential visit as well as the Yr 5/6 one. Watch this space for further updates.
Please also have a look at our new vision. We have linked it to a passage from the Bible. ‘The Seed is the Word of God’ Luke 8:11. The children will be learning about the Parable of the Sower and linking the new vision to this. We have also changed our ‘strap line’. We all believe that we are ‘Enabling children to flourish through the field of life’.
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.
