UEA and Sainsbury Centre Visit

On Thursday 21st June 21 children from MIS, MJS and Bacton visited UEA and the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich, as part of our work on raising aspirations.

We had a fantastic day touring the entire campus – we even looked at the accommodation and the ‘nap-zone’!  Our UEA student ambassadors were very informative – they really helped the children get a good understanding of what a University is!  During the afternoon we took part in an Art workshop at the Sainsbury Centre with a particular focus on the sculptures which surround the building.

Our day of higher learning was great and our aspirations have risen – we just need to get through primary school, high school and college before we can apply to be an undergraduate!!

Olympic Swimmers Visit

On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to be visited by not one, but two, Olympic swimmers. Joe Roebuck and his partner, Amy Smith, came along to encourage us to participate in sport, but also to reach our dreams.

The morning began with a fitness circuit which was completed by all members of the school, from Reception to staff! It involved completing 1 minute of four different activities: spotty dogs, leg drives, push ups and and star jumps. By the end of it, there were lots of red faces and the hall had a new aroma!

Afterwards, we gathered back in the hall for an inspirational assembly about how Joe reached his goal. He focussed on all the times he had nearly given up but kept going so that he could compete in the Olympic games. He showed us a few of his favourite medals and then we had a test of our reactions, with Macey taking the crown.

I don’t think the hall has ever been so noisy as he encouraged all of the children to cheer him on in one of his races and spoke about how encouragement really does help people achieve.

It was hard work but what a fantastic morning!

Swimming Gala

On Monday, 19 children from Years 3-6 went to Beeston Hall to compete in a swimming gala. The behavior was fantastic and it was lovely to go to a new place and swim in the outdoor pool under the glorious sunshine. We managed to bring home three medals and want to say a big well done to all those children who were chosen to compete.

Mental Health Awareness Week – May 2018

This week we have been thinking about way to look after our mental health, with particular focus on stress, as part of the national Mental Health Awareness week.  Mrs Cass, who is our Mental Health Champion for the schools planned a range of things both for the children and the staff.  Activities included breakfast in the staffroom for the adults on Wednesday, sensory activities such as slime as well as relaxing in the cloud room.

You can find lots of information and useful hints and tips on the following website  https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week

The Big Battery Hunt

On Friday 20th April, the schools councils from MIS and MJS joined forces to count the 1000’s of batteries collected by families in Mundesley.  All children took home a book and were asked to collect all used batteries to try to reduce the number going into landfill.

The children were amazed at the number collected (we’re yet to have a total) which filled all of the containers we have and more!  Thank you to everyone who took part.  We are continuing to collect used batteries so please bring them into school when yours run out.  We have tubs in and around both schools.

Neverland and Narnia visited The Time and Tide museum

On 6th March 2018 Neverland and Narnia visited The Time and Tide museum in Great Yarmouth to become explorers.  They went on a journey to learn all about what it takes to become an explorer.  They examined things they found, asked lots of questions and even had to defend their ship from a group of ugly pirates!

The children (and staff) had a great day and were amazingly well behaved.

Mini Coastal Walk Challenge

A number of children and their families took part in the Mini Coastal Walk Challenge on Sunday 22nd April 2019.

The Mini Coastal Walk Challenge offers families the chance to share some quality time together and make some special memories, while raising funds to help support disadvantaged and disabled people across Norfolk.

All proceeds raised from the event will support the Foundation’s work with disadvantaged and disabled people across Norfolk.

The children did an amazing job in what were very warm conditions, not to mention the torrential rain, hail and thunderstorms which followed.  Thankfully the sun made an appearance again at the end!

Well done to everyone who took part, we are extremely proud of you.

Norman Lamb opens our new play equipment

On Friday we we welcomed Norman Lamb to come and open our new play equipment.  The children were very excited to see the climbing area officially opened and the school council were the first to try it out.

I would like to publicly thank Mrs Goodman who has put a lot of work into securing the funding from The National Lottery.  This is another phase to our development of the outdoor area and aim to apply for further funding to support us.
