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.

Welcome back – it has been a very busy time since we returned from the Summer Break. We have welcomed 18 new Yr R to Rudham and 5 to Weasenham.

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.

The attendance for this week is as follows:- RUDHAM = Eagle Owls – 97.89%, Snowy Owls – 95.22%, Barn Owls – 96.36% and Tawny Owls – 91.11%. WEASENHAM = Kingfishers – 89.41% and Robins – 97.22%.

Welcome back after the Easter break. This term is already busy with lots of events planned. Years 3 and 4 have been to a Tag-Rugby festival today. Look out on the Kingfisher page and also the Snowy Owls to see how they got on.

We are aiming to put all newsletters onto our website, however copies will be on the school notice boards and in the school reception areas. If you require paper copies of any of our documents, please contact the school office.

Look out for our ‘tadpole watch’ at both schools!

I aim to update this blog each week, with news of what has been happening in school.
