Year 6 visited Gorsefield for a fun-filled week of activities such as archery, mountain biking, orienteering and more. They also explored the rural area of Stansted and spent their days playing football, table-tennis, basketball - whilst also relaxing in the conservatory, tree house or lounge.

Well done Year 6 for persevering through team challenges, and picking up life skills even if unfamiliar at first! Proud of you all!

Thank you Gorsefield!

Windrush generation

This term, children in Year 5 were learning about the Windrush generation. They looked at where the Caribbean was and why people from the Caribbean had decided to leave their country to come to Britain, their mother country, in 1948. 

Children of Year 5 got an opportunity to then hear the story first hand from Tony Downie, who was a 'barrel baby' (children who were brought over later by migrant parents from the Caribbean to the UK after they settled in) and served in the British military. He shared his experiences of coming over to Britain and how he came close to being deported at the height of the Windrush scandal. It was very inspiring to hear his story and it helped the children better understand the experiences of the WIndrush generation.

It was a really fun way of using our learning more practically. 

Safer Internet Day 2023

Earlham celebrated Safer Internet Day 2023.
Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on children and young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers and more, to help to create a better internet. Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in our school, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.

Y5 Maths Trail

Year 3 went on a trip to the British Museum as part of their History topic of The Ancient Egyptians.

We even got to know how the measuring equipment is used by the park-keepers to maintain the gardens.

We examined flowers and learnt about different insects and their habitats. We then went on an insect hunt around the garden and found different insects including earthworms and snails. To provide a safe place for the insects to live in, we then looked for different materials we could use to build a small habitat for them.
