Youngsters, parents and staff came together to celebrate the World Cup and the opening of their new conservatory at Ingoldisthorpe C of E Primary School last Thursday.
The afternoon saw plenty of fun and festivities with a football tournament, crafts and card sales, cakes, a barbecue and a raffle.
They were also joined by a special visitor on the day, Gary Setchell, manager of King’s Lynn Town Football Club.
Jane Gledhill, school support manager, said: “It was a lovely day. Parents came and joined us for a barbecue around lunchtime and stayed to watch the football matches and enjoy the table top sales.”
The raffle followed a sporting theme with prizes including a Norwich FC signed pennant, sports equipment, fitness vouchers, horse riding lessons and much more.
The school also saw the official opening of a new conservatory built by J&K Glass to extend Willow Classroom.
Jane added: “Besides a classroom extension, they have created a nice quiet area for the children to read or do activities.”
Deputy head and Willow Class teacher, Sarah Hall, said: “The difference is amazing. There is so much more space and light, it is a superb room for reading, bird watching and for getting closer to nature whatever the weather. We can’t thank J&K Glass enough.”
Jon Dickson, sales manager at J&K Glass, said: “We got planning permission in January and started work straight away. Despite the very poor weather conditions, we managed to create a nice conservatory out of support for Ingoldisthorpe Primary School.”
