On Wednesday 16th January 2019, we joined together as a school to look at the importance of leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The children spent the day in their house groups and went around the school looking at a range of activities. The children pushed themselves to the limit during circuits and dance, they tried foods they'd never had before whilst making fruit kebabs and created healthy songs to help them remember some of the lovely fruits. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day with many of them learning about new physical activities or new, yummy fruits they'd love to eat more of.
All Saints Laxfield were very pleased to welcome firefighters from Eye into the school. The children loved looking around the fire engine, finding out about the tools and even shooting some targets with the hose! We would like to pass our thanks on to the firefighters once more for their time, all the children found it thoroughly educational and a lot of fun.
Yes it's official, Laxfield was the best performing primary school in Suffolk 2017/18. With scores of of 8.1 in reading, 6.6 in writing and 6.5 in Maths we were “well above average” in every category. Congratulations to all the staff and pupils who worked so hard throughout their time here at Laxfield. News of this success was published in the EADT with some lovely photographs of Miss Havers and the current Eagles class.
