19th House Swimming Gala

On Wednesday 5th November 2019, eighty pupils from upper key-stage 2 participated in twenty-nine races during our 19th house swimming gala. The children were brave, willing and motivated. We were particularly proud of how the children came together as a team. We thank eight incredible student sports leaders from Thomas Mills, Audrey and Sue, and the team at Framlingham Leisure. Congratulations to Bulstrode for retaining the title and commiserations to the other teams who endeavoured so passionately. 

VW PASB House Tag-Rugby Tournament 2019

On Monday 25th November 2019, forty-one children competed in a house tag-rugby tournament. During the event, the children were energetic, involved and hyped. We thank the teachers and two Year 6 pupils for officiating the games. Well done children! 




Music Soiree

WOW! What an amazing array of talented musicians and singers.
Mrs Mawson is overwhelmingly proud of the children who performed in the Music Soiree last night, and would like to thank everyone for taking part.
Thank you for the generous contributions to the retiring collection towards Music in the school - we are delighted to say that £145 was donated - and this will be used to purchase a class set of recorders as well as a light for the piano, to be used at events like last night.

Sharing Stories Part 2

Yesterday, Class JT joined up with Class CH (Reception) to share the books they had written inspired by Nick Butterworth, after his visit to the school. It was so meaningful for the Year 5's to see whether the audience they had written for were going to like their books. A wonderful time was had by all!

Decorating our Eco Council Christmas tree at St Michael's Church

This afternoon Eco Council visited the Church to decorate our Christmas tree supported by Greener Fram. The children had made decorations using recycled or biodegradable materials and enjoyed arranging them on the tree ensuring that their message of REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE was clear.


         While we were in the Church we had some quiet reflective time             considering our Eco message and who we want to reach.







Wishing you a HAPPY ECO CHRISTMAS!!

Sharing stories

Inspired by our visit from Nick Butterworth, Class SC rewrote some of the well known bible stories for younger children. These were made into books that the children carefully illustrated. Yesterday, we went to Nursery and Class KM and shared our stories with them which we all enjoyed.

FOREST SCHOOL

WEEK 6 - CLASS KB

A lovely last session for class KB. On arriving at the wood the children noticed some bells hanging in the willow dome and a letter from Willow the woodland elf asking them to help build some elf houses to keep them warm over the winter. They were then allowed to choose a magic bell to help decorate a Christmas wreath. The children also made some wonderful owl decorations from the tree cookies they had cut the previous weeks.
We finished the morning with the children's favourite game, 'Eagle Eyes'.







London Trip for Year 6

What a fascinating time the children had on their trip to London yesterday.
First stop was the V&A Museum of Childhood, followed by lunch and then an official tour of the Houses of Parliament. The day was finished off with a stop for dinner on the way home. A long and tiring but hopefully fun and engaging day for all involved.
Lots more photos on the school website gallery.
Reports from the children will follow.

Charley Bear from East Anglia's Children's Hospice launches our Christmas fund-raising.


This afternoon we had a visit from East Anglia’s Children Hospice (EACH). School council introduced Jo and explained that as a school council, we had chosen to support a local children’s charity. 

Jo introduced Charley bear who was able to tell the children about the hospice and all that they do.

The letters in Charley’s name spelt out seven key areas of work that the hospices do with the children.

·             Care
·        Hospices
·        All around
·        Raising money
·        Love and laughter
·        Everybody
·        You

Can you remember what they all mean and how the hospice helps less fortunate families with poorly children? 

We hope to raise as much money as we can for this worthwhile cause.  There will be retiring collections at the Nativity performances on the 12th and 13th December and also after the Carol service on the 17th December.


Additionally, the Christmas jumper day on 18th December, when we have our Christmas dinner, we are asking for pupils to make a donation in aid of EACH when they wear their own Christmas jumper.

Eco council making decorations

The Eco council have been busy making Christmas decorations with an important message for the Christmas tree festival in the Church.
The children recycled old Christmas cards and used biodegradable or recycled materials to make their creations. Some of the children added the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle message to their decorations too.
Make sure you have a look for the tree at the Christmas tree festival which is open in St Michael's Church from 7th December to 5th January.

A busy morning at Robin Wood! Some of the children finished off sawing their tree cookies while others were busy creating woodland potions, making animal homes and investigating the woodland. 
The children also helped to prepare pizza wraps to cook on the campfire.
