A glorious return to school; great weather and great spirit – long may it continue!

This Week


Under 9 Cluster Football Tournament at Hunstanton Primary School

We were in a group with four other teams. Our first match was against Snettisham. We had to play uphill which was hard. I quickly got a goal but then we all switched off and they scored four goals.

We soon forgot that game. We then played Hunstanton City who we knew were going to be tough. We played very well and I scored the only goal which meant we won the match 1-0.

The next match against Dersingham Rovers was our best. Jaybe scored two goals and we won 2-0.

The last game was against Docking Devils. We dominated the game and had many chances to score but unfortunately the game ended goalless.

We came third overall in the tournament, narrowly missing out to Snettisham on goal difference for second place. Hunstanton City were the winners but we felt very pleased as we had beaten them.

My joint men of the match were Caleb for his great defending and Jaybe for his attacking. Well done team!

RAF Marham visit Glebe for STEM day

On Friday Div 7 & 8 had a great morning with a STEM challenge set by Maurice Howard & Sarah Timpson from RAF Marham.

The children were given photos from a spurious reconnaissance mission. In teams, with designated team leaders they had to build what gradually dawned on them, a catapult. The machine that threw the ammunition the furthest obviously won. So a big well done to Ellie Dix and her winning team.

It was challenging but huge fun for all and we hope we can work with RAF Marham soon to do more STEM challenges.


EYFS Fun Morning on Saturday 21st April

Life at Glebe doesn’t stop even on some weekends and yesterday it was the turn of some of our younger pupils to enjoy a couple of hours of activity in Pre-Prep. Organised by Tamzine Fraulo, we were grateful to Becky Playford, Jane Lewis, Sally Maud, Lis Haslam, Susie Pull, Sharon Frohawk and the Gappers for offering activities from making bugs to attractive tattoes. We were also joined for story time by Beatrix Potter (Gina Veale) and a Bear (Anna Hallard). A highlight was a visiting show of mini monsters including a bearded dragon, snakes, giant snails, spiders and millipedes, which Ed McKay explained, encouraging children to interact with them. Many thanks also to Lucy Baker and Anna Piggott who provided and served refreshments.

The 4th GHS Triathlon

We are just three weeks away from the Triathlons and the team led by Phil Haslam, Kevin King and Gary Hawkins are working well to ensure another great event.

This year we are delighted to be working in partnership with Walking with the Wounded, the amazing charity that supports a pathway for vulnerable veterans to re-integrate back into society and sustain their independence.
