We have had a super article released last week in the EADT and their online edition. The link can be found here, which includes video interviews and a number of wonderful photos of the children from class LH in action in our Forest School.

Yesterday we were treated to the final round of Hitcham's Head Chef. The children once again impressed. They worked methodically and calmly with a wonderful confidence to prepare and cook Lemon and garlic baked salmon with asparagus and wedges, Tuna pasta bake and Chili con carne. The smells coming from the kitchen classroom were amazing once again. Big thanks to Mrs Aldred who came to judge this week. We did not envy her task. Each of the dishes looked and tasted delicious!
Big thanks are also due to Mrs Jenkins and Miss Dineen for giving up their time to help the competition run and for their support and encouragement of all the competitors, and also to our fabulous parents who have supported, encouraged and eaten all the practise attempts. Thank you!
Sadly, Mrs Wright our Crossing Patrol is leaving her role with us tomorrow, the children made her a lovely card and gave her some flowers in Assembly this week to say a big Thank you! for keeping us safe crossing College Road.
Here are just a small selection of the wonderful new Reading Scheme books that the school has recently been able to purchase, thanks to the huge fundraising events put on by the Friends through the year and the pupils through the Hitcham's Hundreds fundraising.
Our Harvest Service in the Church of Saint Michael in Framlingham on Friday 12 October was packed out, with standing room only at the back. Each class contributed to the service and the Worship Team stood alongside Rev Sanders and Mrs Picton to receive the gifts. Graham Reardon who is a lay preacher and volunteer at the Waveney Food Bank spoke to us about the important work that the food bank does in the local area, and it's growing importance. The retiring collection raised £144 for WaterAid. This charity works to help people across the world have access to clean water. Both charities work to help people in their daily lives and we are pleased and proud to be able to support them.
Today, fifty-six pupils from VW and PASB combined to play in a house football competition. During the games, the children were ready, respectful and safe whilst contesting to win. We were proud to see some incredibly strong relationships between the children which made the whole event very enjoyable; despite the weather!
The children noticed Mr Peck had not updated the score board properly!
I would like to thank sixteen very special sports leaders for officiating two recent events. These children were invited to attend training at lunch time and officiate games as referees. Between them, they officiated games for over one hundred and twenty pupils. During the events, they were the perfect role-models for our children.
On Thursday 11th October, we held a Handball Festival for seventy-six children. We were blessed to have fifteen sports leaders from VW and PASB officiate this for us. All of the children showed beautiful conduct and a good will to win. Coupled with the sunshine, this made it a marvellous experience.
On Monday 8th October, JT and SC combined to play a house tournament. Each house were divided into 2 mixed groups. During the process, the children showed great teamwork, compassion and energy. We thank them for making the experience so enjoyable.
