Holt Hall 2019

The children in Beech and Juniper classes went on a residential to Holt Hall; they were very well behaved and made the staff very proud. The children tried out new experiences such as using mini wind turbines and building camp fires to cook the sardines that they had prepared. Children worked hard on their team skills, working together to complete challenges. Many children had the opportunity to develop their listening skills as well as learning to think tactically about a variety of team problems. It was a fantastic opportunity and a great time was had by all.


Africa Alive.  

Oak and Pine Class enjoy a beautiful spring day at the zoo.  Working together, the children learnt about African Animals to support their class room studies.






On Friday 1st February St Edmund’s celebrated ‘Number Day’ (sponsored by the NSPCC). Our children dressed up with a number theme and the staff attempted a domino look. Parents were invited in to join their children in their morning maths lesson, with all donations going to a great cause. Activities included designing place value systems to working out how much it would cost to replace all the furnishings and equipment in the school. Mrs Fisher, our wonderful chef, tailored the menu to reflect the day’s events.

Roald Dahl Day – 13th September 2018

At Waveney Valley we have celebrated Roald Dahl Day.  We all came in an amazing variety of fancy dress costumes of characters from Dahl’s books.  At Mendham we participated in activities based on some of the famous books – we imagined the most fantastical dreams, unpicked some of the strangest characters, designed chocolate bars and completed wild discoveries outside.

What a fun day – now we have all been inspired to read some of Roald Dahl’s books.

To celebrate Father's day we invited our Dad's and Grandad's along to school for a breakfast to start their day off.  We had a great response with over 30 servings of bacon rolls delivered just at Mendham.  Following breakfast the Father's enjoyed a game of football on the playing field.
