November has been a busy month for local community activities for the pupils at Horning Primary School.
On Monday 7 November children from across the school in Otter and Fox classes spent the morning baking sweet and savoury pastries and treats for a community café event to be held at Horning Village Hall.
During the afternoon children from Fox class were at the Village Hall welcoming family, friends and members of the Horning community to the café. Dressed in smart aprons, they served the visitors with drinks, delicious cakes and savouries, giving change and helping to provide a lovely relaxed atmosphere by involving the visitors in poppy craft-making activities in readiness for Remembrance Day.
“Our school, of course, is a valuable part of the local Horning community, so it is important that the wider community, other than our pupils’ parents and families, is involved in the life of the school,” said Deputy Executive Head Teacher David Hopkins.
He continued: “The children and the staff really enjoyed this event, and I would like to thank everybody who supported it and helped us to raise just over £89 for [what purpose?]”.
On Friday 11 November, Remembrance Day, the children paid their respects as they laid a British Legion and a handmade wreath at the memorial in the grounds of St Benedict’s Church in Horning. They walked hand in hand to the church before taking part in a short service and two minutes silence to commemorate those lost in war.
Horning Primary and Hedgehog Pre School are located in a rural setting within beautiful grounds just outside the village of Horning, close to Wroxham. The school benefits from small class sizes and the dedicated team of staff provide a supportive and nurturing environment.
