Autumn is well and truly with us, so it is lovely to look back on the hot summer days of our Year 6 Transition Week. Our theme for the week was Mystery and Crime; the Year 6 students experienced a range of subjects across all curriculum areas linked to this, including practical work in Science and a workshop on how to be a detective led by DS Graves. The week culminated in a team building day led by Mr Emmerson. Students enjoyed activities such as ‘Capture the Flag’ as well as a practical policing activity. We were also extremely lucky to have had a visit from Police Dogs Dizzy and Bronx, along with their handler PC Harwood. Students learned all about the wide range of roles undertaken by police dogs in Norfolk; PC Harwood has inspired lots of future dog handlers, as our pictures show!
The Year 6 students impressed both our visitors and their new teachers with their enthusiasm and positivity during transition week. Now, as fully fledged Northgate students, they continue to do so.
