Everyone had a brilliant time, as can be seen from the photos below.
Thank you to everyone who made the afternoon so special.
A parent captured most of the service on film for us, for which we are very grateful, and this is embedded below (in three parts).

It was great to see the children experimenting with different ways of representing mathematical problems.
Even the Teaching Assistants enjoyed trying to work out the solutions!

The Rock and Roll Panto!
On Thursday year 3,4, 5, 6 are going to the wolsey to watch Dick Whittington. Every year we go to watch the Panto. The dame always looks out for Mr Mansell. Is’nt that totally weird!
I love the performances that the Wolsey produce, last year it was ‘Sleeping Beauty’! That was also great!
I cant wait, it is going to be great. I especially like it when the dame throws water on the crowd. The Rock and roll panto is very funny to!
The Princess bride!
On Friday, we saw a movie called the Princess bride. It was about a stable boy who fell in love with a Farmer’s girl. They were split up because he had to work elsewhere. Many years later they were reunited not aware it was really them. Once they discovered who it was they ran away together... Molly

Happy Birthday Mr Pearce!
Monday 4 November 2013
We were delighted to hear the news earlier today that the school has been shortlisted in the final three for the prestigious 'Healthy Ambitions Suffolk Primary school of the Year Award'.
Their description of our school (based on last year) reads:
Earl Soham Community Primary school started the academic year with 64 pupils on roll. This did not deter them from continuing to provide a wide range of extra curricular activities nor entering many of the School Games competitions. The commitment of staff and parents enabled the pupils to qualify for an unprecedented 5 county finals, the highlights of these being the School Games Festival in Bury St Edmunds where the school finished 5th in the swimming and remained unbeaten in Netball. All children have access to sporting activities with participation levels high in the many after school clubs offered. The whole school sports day continued the ethos of the Olympics with participation and enjoyment working alongside teamwork, respect, determination and commitment. The children’s achievements both within school and outside of the school environment are recognised and celebrated at the schools ‘sharing assembly’ with the parents every Friday morning. What the school has achieved, considering it’s size, is phenomenal.
A big thank you for the nomination and for everyone's continued support in enabling the children to have the opportunities to take part in so many different sporting activities.
The awards ceremony takes place at Trinity Park, Ipswich, during the evening of Friday 15th November. Fingers crossed!
Bad news - A few days ago we were listening to bbc radio 2 and heard that there was a storm dew very soon. Now you may think we always have storms but this was not going to be any ordinary storm though. The weather predictors forecasted it to be like the storm of 1988. That storm brung down trees, made houses sway and even killed people!
This storm was just the same. Trees fell down, houses swayed and people died. At dunwich heath they lost power for a day and the woodland areas were cut of to anybody because the trees had become dangerous. My best friend lost her power for roughly a week! She said one thing that may become a famous quote one day that sentence was “that was the most BORING day of my life!” Anyway the storms over now and everyone in this school is ok.
The windy weather.
Since Monday morning there has been a massive storm that has blown over cars and trees and has made a lot of damage in very many villages.
Last night there was another big storm but not as big as the one on Monday . In our field there has been a massive Oak tree that has blown over and broken two big fences on either side of the tree; we had to pull it out with the tractor.
