Today we learnt about World Soil Day in assembly.
World Soil Day (WSD) is held annually on 5 December as a means to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and advocating for the sustainable management of soil resources.
All the candidates, who are standing in the general election for Norwich South, have visited our school over the past few weeks.

Sandy Gilchrist, from the Brexit party, came to talk to the children today. He talked about voting, democracy and why this led to him standing for the Brexit party.
The candidate for the Conservative party, Mike Spencer, came to talk to the children. He talked about his career as a doctor and how this relates to his work as a politician.
James Wright, of the Liberal Democrats, came in to speak to the children today. He is currently a city councillor and is a former pupil of the school (before it was Bluebell).
Two pupils were selected for their exceptional homework following science week.
All children were given the challenge to research a scientist and many completed great pieces of work. These pupils chose Marie Curie and Thomas Edison and did an exceptional job. They were awarded in assembly today with prizes for their efforts but well done to everyone who entered.
