Boys Finish as unlucky runners-up in Football Tournament

Our boys football team pictured after the final of the area tournament.
Ther were 24 teams in 4 groups. Our boys won all 5 group games and a tough semi final vs St Botolphs.
However, in the final vs Eye we could not beat an inspired opposition goal keeper. Despite dominating the game - it finished 0-0 and went to extra time. The Eye keeper mad another string of good saves to deny Framlingham.
The title was then decided on penalties.

The company that hosts our current school website (Internet Kit) has advised us today that they have ceased trading. Over the next 24 hours all the websites they host will go offline, ours included.
Although this is a major concern for us we had already started the development of a new website with Green Schools Online. We will now work flat out to speed this up, and hope that by the end of next week we can launch our new site (or at least most of it!).
In the interim, if you require any information that you would normally access from the school website please ask at the office.

Year 6 Children Enjoy Great Day on London

In Parliament Square before going on a guided tour inside.

We visited the British Museum including the Sutton Hoo treasure, Roman items found in Suffolk, the Pathenon Statues from Greece and lots of amazing Egyptian artefacts.

We walked around Westminster seeing the Horseguards, Downing Street, Westminster Abbey and statues of famous politicians.

Inside Parliament photos are only allowed in a few areas such as St Stephen's Hall and Westminster Hall - the original Parliament rooms.

This year we had a special thrill on our tour. We visited the Queen's rooms and spent time in the House of Commons Public Gallery watching a live debate.
We also met and spoke to Lord Phillips - a member of the House of Lords.

On the way home London looked fantastic with all the lights coming on. We drove over Tower Bridge and past the Tower of London.
