Class 1 and 2 came together to do some delicious cooking. They mixed together mackerel, lemon zest, parsley and horse radish sauce to make a delicious mackerel pate on toast, served with cherry tomatoes. We were really impressed with how many of the children enjoyed tasting it!

Delicious – and beautifully presented

Monday 16th September

The whole school, together with Tivetshall Primary, visited the Sea Life Centre at Hunstanton. The children had a wonderful look at the huge variety of animals, including hundreds of different types of fish, seals, penguins, sharks, anemones and a turtle. The children also had a classroom session where they were able to stroke a starfish and handle a number of different objects, including shark egg cases.
