Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday, but it is a good idea to bring your kit into school every Monday.
Wow! What an action packed week investigating India to enhance our topic on comparing villages from across the world.
Year 1 have designed and painted mehndi patterns on their hands, made elephant collages, learnt a Bangla dance and made and tasted some Indian food.
Year 1 had an amazing day with the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. They learnt about mini beasts and their habitats. We found some mini beasts and looked at them through some magnifying glasses. We then collected some natural materials and made a bug hotel! We finished the day with a game of bat and moth which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
Year 1 have thoroughly enjoyed enrichment week. They have been making bird feeders and hanging them in the nature area, then we learnt about some different types of birds and tried to spot some. We used these results to enter the school for the RSPB bird watch! Having explored the nature area we then created our own mini version using natural resources. We then used water colours to paint some of the birds we had seen. We were very brave and created or own song about Hopton and performed it in front of the whole school!
This week year 1 and 2 enjoyed a trip to Norwich Cathedral. They experienced a tour around the cathedral led by Edith Cavell, whilst learning about her life. Then they enjoyed making a poppy wreath. Their behaviour was exemplary and they represented the school impeccably!
