Egyptian Homework Projects

Here are some of the beautiful pieces of homework that have been brought in to school over the past few weeks. The children have clearly enjoyed spending their time making these Egyptian artefacts and learnt lots along the way. There are also many pieces of written work on display in the classroom, so please do pop in and have a look at them all.

Cross Country

Yesterday afternoon pupils in year four and above took part in the cross country alongside pupils from other local primaries. It was a gruelling, but enjoyable run and the children's determination to succeed was inspiring. We had four pupils, three girls and one boy (pictured below), who placed in the top five for their year group - a fantastic achievement! They will go on to the next round later this term. 

Very well done to everyone who took part. You were brilliant and made us very proud. 

All the photos (over 300) are shown in the slideshow below, so get yourself a cuppa!

Interactive RE

On Thursday, pupils in Yellow Class headed over to St Mary's church for an interactive RE lesson. Reverend Brian met them there, where he "baptised" a teddy and a doll explaining that this was how people joined the family of the church. Some of the children acted the part of Parents and Godparents and others acted as the congregation.

Some children were also able to recount the story of John the Baptist baptising Jesus in the River Jordan.

Welcome Party!

Last weekend's Welcome Party was a fantastic evening of dancing, food and the occasional beverage. An opportunity for parents and children, new and old established to get to know one another, the evening was organised by our wonderful PTFA. As usual Glenn provided the entertainment with an eclectic mix of music for all tastes, and the children (and some of the adults) enjoyed boogie-ing the night away and seeing how many balloons they could pop before it was time to go home.

Thank you everyone who came to support the event and all the behind-the-scenes people who worked so hard to make it a success.

Harvest Festival

This morning we celebrated our Harvest Festival at St Mary's Church. We are very grateful to everyone who donated produce. This has been given to the Ormiston Trust in Ipswich where it will be distributed to families in need.

The children performed their songs and poems beautifully. Red Class wowed everyone with their rendition of the Menu Song and it was interesting to hear from Reverend Brian the story of the rich farmer, who only thought of himself.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the church. We hope you will also join us before school tomorrow for a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
