We started by going off in a mini bus to Stradbroke High School. The first match we played was against St. Botolphs Primary School B and we won 7-2.

After that, our heads were high and our winning streak carried on as we beat Thordon 2-0. It was our toughest match so far and we drew against Bedfield primary school 1-1. After that we were determined and beat Gislingham Primary School 2-0 again. 

Then the results came in and we came 1st in our group, so then we went into the semi-finals against Eye Primary School. Sadly, we lost 2-1, so that meant we played  Bedfield Primary School and we lost 1-0. So in the end we came 4th, which is amazing for such a small school!

Below are two videos. The first is an interview with the two year five boys who made the startling discovery of the giant egg, and the second is a compilation of clips from events of the last few days.

The Egg!

On Monday morning, an unusual surprise awaited us in the school grounds. Over the weekend a creature unknown had visited the school and laid an egg in a break in the hedges, behind the train. This was no normal egg, however. Measuring nearly 60cm high and 40cm across, this egg was a monster! It quickly drew the attention of the all the children, having initially been spotted by two year five boys. The find was quickly cordoned off and the relevant authorities informed. 

Back in the classroom there was much discussion about what kind of creature might have laid it. A second viewing led to further discoveries, including:
  • a slimy residue on the picnic benches (pictured below);
  • a part-eaten apple core;
  • and scratch marks in the grass. 
The children quickly surmised that the adult creature could be herbivorous, or omniverous, and great care was taken to keep a watch on the area in case she returned to the nest. 

The local police put the school in contact with the National Museum for Strange Objects (, who were quick to respond with advice on caring for the egg. 

On Tuesday, the NMSO sent a scientist, Professor R. Turner, to pay the school a visit. He took a range of measurements, working out the circumference, temperature and viscosity, and used a special machine to x-ray the egg and record sounds from within. 

The local vets, Earl Soham Vets, also sent representatives to check the health of the embryo by listening in with their stethoscope. They were unfortunately unable to identify the species of animal that laid the egg, but gave good advice in keeping it safe until such time as it hatches.

Cross Country

This morning, our year four, five and six pupils took part in a very muddy Cross Country around the grounds of Framlingham College. I am very proud of everyone for taking part and completing the course. We have a number of children going through to the next stage at Mellis in the Spring, including one year-six girl who achieved a third-place medal.

Well done, children, and thanks too to the many parents who lent their support and encouragement.
