Broadening Our Horizons Through Lifelong Learning

Year 3 – 51 Things To Do At Southwold

As part of Class 3’s ‘51 Things to do at Southwold’ the children have held a scary beast! All of the children were so brave and touched the millipedes. A big thank you to Ashley from Stonebridge City Farm for bringing them in for us to see

EYC enjoy the Southwold library

After the visit from the Nottingham City librarian, EYC decided to visit our Southwold library. We had a lovely time choosing a book and getting cosy on the beanbags. Then our teacher read us a lovely story. What a wonderful experience

Year 3 – Weston Park Museum visit

Class 3 had a fabulous day out at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield.

We learnt about the daily life of Ancient Egyptians, handled precious artefacts and we even made out own amulet. The Museum Educator was so impressed with our knowledge!

EYC’s librarian visit

EYC had a visit from our local library. The librarian read three gorgeous books and we voted which one was our favourite. The one about the Pug won. The librarian left us with a gift: a pack of books! We loved them too and can’t wait to share them.


EYC have been taking part in Children in Need.  We dressed up in our spotty, yellow clothes, made split pin Pudsey bears and did some Joe Wickes children in need exercises.

Such fun!

Year 1 celebrate Children In Need day

Class 1 are dressed in spots or what makes them happy for children in need day! Have a happy day everyone!!

Year 2 – Creative writing

We having been reading a very special story in Class 2 and are now on a mission to find out where our main characters have gone. The children are so excited to write their own creative stories for our special guests.

Year 5 visit the Space Centre

Class 5 visited the Space Centre today. We learned how to become astronauts and how to control a rover on another planet. We returned exhausted, educated and enthused.

Year 2 experiment with marbling

Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with marbling, investigating how ink floats and changes with movement.  The first step to creating a portrait of Queen Victoria.

EYC – Anti-bullying week launch

EYC all came to school wearing odd socks to represent anti-bullying week.  We looked in a mirror and talked about the differences between ourselves and our friends.  We talked about how we are all different, but we are still ‘All FRIENDS TOGETHER’. We also read the stories, ‘Happy in Our Skin’ and ‘The Little Bully’.

Year 6 Primary Parliament Day

For Primary Parliament day,  Year 6 focused on themes around the COP26 conference happening in Glasgow and how we, here in Nottingham, can contribute to the goal of carbon neutrality by 2028. A team of researchers from the University of Nottingham helped us to devise “green machines” of the future. We then presented our findings to other local schools and councillors.

Southwold remembers

We had a very special remembrance service this morning. Everyone made a poppy and we planted these in our memorial garden as a tribute. Many thanks to Lilian Greenwood MP for taking the time to join us.

Year 1 – Remembrance Day

Class 1 are ready for the remembrance service today at school. Lest we forget.

Year 4 are Stone Age hunters!

Year 4 were Stone Age hunters far from their home caves needing to build themselves some shelter. Great team work, great communication and some interesting designs.

EYC celebrate Diwali

In EYC, we learned about Diwali today. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita, looked at beautiful Indian clothes and did Bhangra dancing. Some children made their own divas and decorated them while others had Mehndi on their hands.

Year 4’s science experiment

Today we learnt how to carry out a practical scientific enquiry, which involves a comparative and fair test. We did this to learn more about human teeth and which kinds of liquids decay our enamel. We used boiled eggs to represent teeth. We placed one boiled egg in coke, one in water and one in orange juice. The liquid which damages and disintegrates the eggshell the most, must be the liquid which causes the most decay on our teeth.

Happy Diwali!

Happy Diwali everyone! We were so lucky to have two of our lovely parents lead a Diwali celebration in school, sharing wonderful stories and traditions. Thank you so much, it was a very special occasion.

EYC Firefighter visit

EYC pupils enjoyed looking inside a real fire engine and pretending to be a firefighter – we were even allowed to spray with the hose! We learned about the protective clothes they wear and the jobs they do. It was hard to give them a big wave when they left because we had our fingers in our ears – the siren is soooo loud!

Governor monitoring

A governor monitoring session today enabled our wonderful children to talk about the school, the curriculum and their learning. It was such a positive experience for the governor and children alike!


We had an amazingly positive INSET day yesterday, starting with a staff drumming (wellbeing) session and an artist workshop before delving into key improvement priorities!
