Norfolk Welcomes Day


On Friday 20th April, Lakenham Primary School will be taking part in Norfolk Welcomes, a day of action in schools across the county celebrating and exploring the many contributions that people seeking sanctuary have made to Norfolk.

Norfolk has a long and rich history as a place of sanctuary and refugee communities have contributed enormously to our shared culture and heritage. One focus for Norfolk Welcomes this year is football. Pupils across the county will discover how refugees have made a mark on the beautiful game locally.

Norwich City FC are supporting the event in recognition that the club’s emblem and nickname ‘The Canaries’ is a legacy of refugee migration into Norfolk.

Football is a great way for people from different backgrounds, speaking different languages, to come together in friendship, and in that spirit we are proud to be joining the many other schools across Norfolk taking part in this event.

We will be holding a non-uniform day on Friday and pupils are welcome to wear either a football strip or green and yellow, and make a suggested donation of £1. All the money donated will go towards New Routes, to provide short-term financial support to refugees and asylum seekers, and Welcome Wheels, a project which aims to provide recycled second-hand bikes and training to refugees in Norwich.

Making water filters

Today in Hawking, we followed a set of instructions on how to make our very own water filter!

Year 5 loved their visit from James Carter!

When James Carter visited our classes we had a fantastic time, listening and learning from him. He helped us write a poem with the title – Impossible gifts. We were also lucky enough for him to visit us again when he taught us how to write a Haiku poem. They are special Japanese poems with 17 syllables and 3 lines only with the pattern, line 1 = 5 syllables, line 2 = 7 syllables and line 3 5 syllables. He inspired us to write our own Haikus about animals. There was some fantastic poems written!

Flexible Hawking Class

Today in P.E. we were working on symmetrical poses, which involved lots of flexibility and strength! We even tested our core strength back in the classroom by trying out the plank position and seeing how long we could hold it!
