This afternoon, Year 5 & 6 started the first of a series of six afternoons with ITFC Community Trust Coach Mark Sharp. The children started off in the classroom looking at the importance of breakfast and the range of choices that are available to us all.
The children then went outside, regardless of the rather bleak weather and had a great time further developing their handball skills. It was nice to hear a new visitor to the school being so complimentary of our children who certainly looked like they were having fun!

Battling Basketball Bronze

This afternoon, eight children took part in the basketball tournament at Stradbroke High School. In what turned out to be an eventful afternoon, Earl Soham turned on the style to finish third with some 'gutsy' performances.
Not sure why the boys are biting their medals? Were they testing for bronze content!?

The Witching Hour

On Thursday morning Mr Pearce had to pop out for a while, but luckily a last-minute supply teacher stepped in to fill his shoes. With a Welsh(ish) accent, a delightful hat, and a "simply magnificent" (if rather small) broom, The Witch came to talk to the children and answer their questions.

It was a fortuitous visit as the children in Yellow class have been studying books by the renowned children's author, Julia Donaldson, and were able to find out all about The Witch's escapades in Room on the Broom.
