Fox Class were lucky enough to visit the Warner Brothers' Studio where the Harry Potter films were made. Our day began with an exclusive, literally behind the scenes, experience in which studio staff showed us authentic costumes and props from the films. We also had a go at distressing our own fabrics just like they do in the films. Following this, we visited the whole set where we were able to experience some movie magic.
For a design and technology project, Key Stage 2 were given the challenge of designing scarecrows. We visited the Hull family farm in Occold and spoke to Farmer Dan about what makes an effective scarecrow. He showed us lots of interesting examples and we asked him questions about potential designs. After this, we returned to school to make our scarecrows. We were surprised to learn that they didn't have to look human!

Otter Class visited the Castle Museum in Norwich for an Ancient Egyptian themed day. We made jewelled collars, took part in role plays about daily life, examined some real artefacts and saw some real mummies. We also took part in a pretend mummification ritual. We had a very enjoyable time and learned lots-thank you Castle Museum Norwich for a super day.

Rabbit and Hedgehog Classes visited the Dinosaur Park in Lenwade, Norfolk for a prehistoric experience. We met dinosaurs, hunted for fossils and had lots of fun on the adventurous play equipment.

As part of their topic on space, Fox Class carried out a practical science investigation that explored impact craters.
