Woodpeckers Class have been discussing the incredible work achieved by farmers and food producers, both here in the UK and around the world. To express our gratitude this harvest, we chose to write either a poem or a prayer on the theme of ‘Thankfulness’. Here is a selection of the work we produced!
In Kingfishers Class the children have been learning about ‘Harvest’. The children have been thinking about how important the Farmers are and being thankful for their food. The children were tasked with creating their own scarecrows so they could help the Farmers scare away the birds. The children coloured in their scarecrows and cut the […]
The children were very lucky as Mrs Clark came into school and spoke to them about Chinese New Year. The children took part in different activities which included making a lucky red envelope and a Chinese dragon. Mrs Clark showed the children how to do Chinese writing and they enjoyed having a go at it. […]
On Thursday afternoon and evening, after lots of rehearsing and lines memorised, children in Kingfishers and Woodpeckers Class performed Hey Ewe! to a packed audience.

The children have been celebrating the Chinese New Year. They had the opportunity to taste: white rice, noodles, prawn crackers, fortune cookies and soy sauce. The children recorded their likes and dislikes of Chinese food on a chart and marked the correct box with a tick or a cross. The children were able to tell […]

Reverend Rosalind asked the […]
On Tuesday the children in Kingfishers and Woodpeckers class went to the Discovery Centre at St Edmundsbury Cathedral to learn about the Christmas story for advent. The children were told the story through reflective storytelling and created their own cardboard advent candle. The children were split in to groups to explore the cathedral and to find the different parts of […]
On Wednesday afternoon and evening, the school hall was packed to the rafters and we felt we were getting a feel of how Mary & Joseph felt in Bethlehem! The only difference was, there was room at our inn (or school hall) and the children performed their nativity – The Magical Christmas Jigsaw – to packed audiences. […]
Following on from our Christingle Service in December, some of our children collected money for ‘The Children’s Society’. One of the girls sold some of her own toys to raise money – well done and thank you for your generosity.
On Friday, all the children went into their ‘Houses’ to create Christingle oranges, with the older ones helping the younger ones put sweets and raisins on cocktail sticks and sticking red tape around the middle. After lunch, the children carried their oranges, which included a glowstick, down to the church. Rev. Rosalind conducted a service, which the parents joined us […]
