Marcel and Josh from Bassistry Arts visit our school every 2 years for two days of workshops with the children. They are both amazing professional musicians. See their website.
The musicians who play and have recorded with
Bassistry are some of the most exciting and leading players in the UK. Performing and recording with artists as diverse as Plan B, Paloma Faith, Corrine Bailey Rae, The Streets, Amy Winehouse, Professor Green, Brand New Heavies, Incognito, The Bollywood Band, Natasha Atlas and many more.
The 2 days culminated in a brilliant assembly with Marcel & Josh leading the whole school in a series of songs and dances.
Watch these videos below. The first one shows Marcel and Josh from Bassistry Arts leading a dance and song with the children from Year 6. The second video shows one of our children playing the drums with Marcel on the bass guitar.
********** SCHOOL CLOSURES DUE TO BAD WEATHER ************
Please remember to listen to BBC Suffolk Radio (103.9FM), or check on our School BLOG or at http://schoolclosures.suffolk.gov.uk/ (Primary Schools)
Thank you for your support during yesterday’s closure, the decision was not made lightly, and I would like to reassure parents that decisions to close are only ever a last resort.
BRING YOUR MUM TO LUNCH – MONDAY 4 to THURSDAY 7 MARCH
In light of past successes, this year we are running ‘Bring your Mum to Lunch’ on four days.
Due to the expected numbers we ask that mums come on just one of these days, if you have more than one child at school you can all eat together.
The costs of school lunches for Mums are £3.32.
On the reverse of this letter is a menu for the 4 days for your information – if you require the vegetarian option you must indicate this on the slip below.
Please fill in the reply slip below and return it to the office with the money FOR THE ADULT MEAL ONLY by Thursday 7 February AT THE LATEST. The catering team need to place their orders before half term; therefore we are NOT able to accept any late requests.
Children should bring in their money as usual on Monday 4 March for lunch arrangements for that week.
Please state below if a VEGETARIAN option is required.
On the Day.....We would ask mums to sign in at the hall foyer and wait there for their child/ren to collect them at 12.00pm to take them into lunch.
Could we remind you that unfortunately you will not be able to park in the school car park due to lack of space. We would ask that mums do not stay after they have eaten lunch; at this time the children will go to the playground and we ask that you sign out as you leave. We would also welcome your feedback on the forms outside the hall when you have finished.
*IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE VEGETARIAN OPTION PLEASE INDICATE THIS

Free e-books for our children
We are delighted to let you know that our school is taking part in Read for My School, the brand new national schools reading competition from 21 January to 22 March 2013.
Long term studies show that children who read for pleasure are significantly more likely as adults to be in continued employment, own their own home, be IT literate, trust others in their community and vote. Read for My School enables all primary schools in England that have access to the internet to enter into a free, secure digital literacy competition that promotes and encourages reading for pleasure and rewards participants with the opportunity to win prizes for themselves and their school by reading books and then recording their progress online.
All of our pupils in years 5 and 6 will be taking part in this fun, free competition that will challenge them to read as many books as they can over the two month period. We will assist pupils with signing up to the competition website, which is a safe and secure environment that complies with child protection laws, and progressing through the programme. However, parents and carers should also support their children by encouraging them to spend time reading at home and talking to them about the books they’ve chosen, as well as providing them with access to a computer so they can read the free online books (if possible) and/or helping them to find suitable books in your local library or bookshop.
The competition is being run by The Pearson Foundation and Booktrust—organisations that are both committed to improving literacy and creating brighter futures for children of all backgrounds. The programme also has support from the Department for Education,
All children and schools who take part in the programme are eligible to win prizes drawn from a pot of 100,000 books kindly donated by Pearson, Penguin and DK.
