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.’
