Neatishead CofE Primary School

Red Skippers

Fran, Louis and Robin arrived at our school in a tractor pulling an enormous trailer!

We clambered on and travelled through out beautiful countryside, along lanes and tracks until we arrived in a field full of lettuce. During the morning we found out how lettuce is harvested, how wheat is planted, fed and cut, how machinery prepares the field and then plants seed potatoes and we got very close to an incredibly noisy herd of Aberdeen Angus cows, calves and a bull! Thank you so much to Neatishead Hall Farm for teaching us so much and for taking us around your farm.

We are all enjoying our new topic “The Wind in the Willows”

We even chose group names from characters in the story: Moles, Rats and Badgers!

KS1 Parent Plan – ‘The Wind in the Willows’

Easter in the Red Skippers is very exciting!

From writing the Easter story, creating Easter cards, writing instructions to make Easter nests and Easter singing, we are extremely busy!


Roman bread was fun to make and delicious to eat!

Experiencing history at the Time and Tide museum. We met a Roman soldier, a slave and a Roman lady. Do ask us what we learned.

We have been learning about healthy eating

We were very lucky to have doctors and students from the Hoveton and Wroxham Medical Centre in school today to talk to us and to play games teaching us how to make healthy choices.

We have been designing, painting and making shields as part of our Roman topic

Our Reception children have enjoyed clapping, singing and making patterns
