On Monday the children enjoyed a wonderful sunny tea party to celebrate and raise money for the NHS. Everyone had so much fun singing songs, eating yummy treats and listening to music. The children wore bright and rainbow clothes for the event. It was fantastic to come together as school for such a brilliant cause.
Despite the weather, the children and families of Salhouse School had a fantastic day; In the morning, the children went round in their house groups, participating in 8 different activities and winning points for their house. At lunchtime, family and friends arrived with their picnics and we all sat out on the school field (pretending it wasn’t drizzling!!).
The afternoon was filled with races which the children had chosen themselves. There was even time at the end for the Mums, Dads and younger siblings to join in!!
The children at Salhouse School all took part in the British Heart Foundation ‘Jump rope for heart’. As part of this, the Heart Foundation sent the school a set of skipping ropes which the children have been using at lunch and break times. They planned their own ‘skipping day’ and collected sponsors from friends and family. The school raised nearly £500 for the Heart Foundation.
We held a music assembly in which children who are learning to play an instrument performed. It was fantastic to see the amount of talent in the school. Everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed the performances.
The whole school walked to the local church to celebrate harvest and each class made a presentation on the theme of “Saying Thank you”
The children of Salhouse Primary School arrived in a sea of red this morning, armed with their £1 donation for Comic Relief! Fantastic effort by all and it helped raise £121.20! Well done! We also had a hilarious start to the school day with a ‘Comedy Show’ organised by Josh Carter, Lucy Conroy, Leah Collins, Alfee Eastman and Charlotted Wise-Slack from Grebes class. The school were treated to an array of funny acts, to mention a few: Miles Finley the stand up comedian, Extreme Ellis telling jokes and the Strictly Factor performing some very funny impressions. Thankyou to all those that took part in the comedy show and brought smiles to everyone.
Children share their musical talents in assemblies. At Salhouse, they can learn violin, guitar, wind instruments, recorder and piano.
Mrs Mutimer (our swimming coach) was a special guest at one of our assemblies- she carried the Olympic torch in Cromer, and brought it with her, so we could have our photos with it.
The whole school walked up to Salhouse All Saints Church, sang carols, listened to the Christmas story, lit the Advent candles and then placed the figures in the crib.
