On 27th November, children in Year 1 and 2 took part in a trees workshop as part of National Tree Week. In the morning, we gathered in the hall to find out about the life cycle of trees and how important they are to our environment. Through role play, we learnt lots of new facts about trees, animals and changes across the seasons. Later in the morning, we took part in a drawing workshop. 

In the afternoon, the Year 2s went to the Erasmus Foundation in Laxfield, where we planted three...

We were awoken at half past 7 today and quickly got up and changed ready for our activities. Before we started, we had a little bit of free time so we played wink murder, Chinese whispers and had a 'moo' off. After this, we made our sandwiches ready for lunch time and then enjoyed our breakfast. Then we set off on our activities, some of us enjoyed rock climbing; others enjoyed canoeing, environmental art or archery. Afterwards, we got some time in the shop before we had our BBQ. Unf...

On Thursday 3rd of October, Kingfishers went to Redgrave and Lopham fen. We started off by walking down to the river. On the way down we were trying to spot different aspects of the environment including trees, plants and birds. When we got to the river we had to take some measurements, we looked at the sides of the bank and their steepness, how quick the water was flowing, the temperature of the water and the height and depth of the water. We did this at 3 separate points to see how...

On Wednesday we opened the school doors for an all day session of The Club.  The children who attended had a fantastic day of fitness, first aid and fun. After a morning learning about and using muscles, they learnt how to call an ambulance, how to put someone in the recovery position and even used a defibrillator.

 Afternoon snack was either cucumber or beans from the school garden which the children picked themselves. They also harvested the garlic that had been planted earlier...

P.E in our school was celebrated this week in our annual Sports Day. The children warmed up with stretching followed by a lolly stick hunt around the school grounds. Running, egg and spoon and sack races were enthusiastically cheered on by the many parents who had come to watch. The house team relay race was hotly contested as were the parents' bean bag on the head races!

After weeks of making their houses from the era of the Great Fire of London, children from Kingfishers class finally saw them go up in flames. The children watched enthusiastically as the wind spread the fire along the houses from number 1, to number 26.

Today the whole school spent time focussing on the important issue of how to keep safe whilst using the Internet. Mr Millican led an assembly on the subject and then the children completed a variety of activities in their classes. 

You can see much of their work around the school and in the classrooms. 

We would encourage parents to talk to their children about what they have learnt. If you are unsure where to start, the NSPCC has some good ideas here
