Heartsease Primary Academy were recently visited by the author Jack Trelawny. He talked to children in years 2 to 6 about how stories are everywhere and that you can start to write about real life experiences. They loved the funny pictures he showed them and enjoyed hearing him read from one of his books. Some of the children bought copies of his books and are loving reading them.
See the newsflash below, created by some of our pupils at Valley Primary Academy – fantastic, creative work and resulting in some fabulous written articles too!
See more exciting articles and news stories below, written and presented by some of our Year 5 pupils from Heartsease Primary Academy, published on the Young Journalist Academy’s website.
There’s been some fantastic writing going on…
Heartsease Primary Academy had a fabulous day when British BMX World Cup Freestyler Emma Finnegan came into school to share her inspirational journey and future aspirations with everyone on Tuesday 30th April. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed her visit and were suitably inspired.
Thank you to everyone who donated 50p for the ‘Wear your p.e./sports kit to school Day’ on the day. £181 was raised which will go towards the ‘Inspire Through Sport’ charity.
In connection with the year 5 topic on space, on Thursday 9th May, Heartsease Primary Academy hosted a ‘pop-up planetarium’. They were joined by Year 5 classes from all the other trust schools. Children were taken on a spectacular journey through our solar system, from the Sun way out to Neptune, and beyond. Most children had not been in a planetarium before and they loved the experience, as well as learning a great deal. We’d like to thank Miss Williams at Lingwood for arranging this exciting event.
Last Week some of our Year 4 children from Heartsease Primary Academy were able to take part in a brilliant Opera Workshop held at Sprowston Junior School.
This links to their work with Into Opera, who have been composing and writing an Opera with pupils in year 4.

Another exciting article from the Young Journalist Academy from our pupils at Valley Primary Academy, telling us about their exciting news of the farm!
‘Valley Primary School in Norfolk is building their own farm. It is being built so the children can develop their skills for life by learning how to be responsible and how to care for others. The idea began when Mrs Leach, a member of staff at the school shared her happy childhood memories of growing up on a farm and commented that she had found it very beneficial. After doing some research it was discovered that there is strong evidence that having animals around you as a child supports good health. Mrs Bush, the head teacher decided to put a bid together to try for this fantastic project and the wish has been granted.’
