On Friday the 14th of July, much fun was had by all at our end of year sports day. The pupils took part in a number of races including the egg and spoon and the sack race, which caused much laughter! All the pupils tried their hardest with nearly everyone receiving a first, second or third place sticker. We were very impressed with the positive attitude of all the children, who cheered each other on and laughed if they weren’t placed. The afternoon ended with the most competitive event of all – the parents’ race! It was a wonderful sports day with everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves and a great way to end the week.
On Friday the 31st of March, we all celebrated Easter at school with a wonderful Easter service where we sang hymns and presented our Easter project on breads of the world.
In Design Technology, Diamond Class investigated different bread including all the different ingredients and then explored making the dough in a focussed practical task.
We then designed our bread, labelling and identifying all the ingredients needed. Finally we had great fun making them and presenting what we made at the Easter Tea, with Nettle soup made by the Year 5/6 pupils, and chocolate nests made by Emerald Class.
Christmas Party Day
We were lucky on the last day of term to receive a visit from Father Christmas who gave every single pupil a wonderful Christmas present for being so good and working so hard all year. We all thanked Father Christmas and gave him a box of chocolates and some carrots for Rudolph to keep them happy on their long journey delivering presents.
After that, we were given an amazing Christmas party where we played amazing party games and had a yummy, delicious afternoon tea. It was a wonderful way to end the term.
It was a very special moment when all our Christingles were lit in the church! Everyone in the school had made their own Christingle in the morning, which we took to the church for our service. We explained the importance and significance of the Christingle to the congregation and we also sang Christmas carols, celebrating the birth of Jesus.
Our Christmas Performance
Our Christmas production this year was ‘Santa’s on Strike’ and what a wonderful performance it was! All the pupils had at least one line to say, which they all delivered clearly and loudly, and the singing was amazing.
There were many proud parents and teachers, and the children thoroughly enjoyed performing it. Thankfully, Santa didn’t ‘strike’ and everyone got their Christmas presents!
Premier Sports Visit
On Tuesday the 8th of November our school was visited by a member of the ‘Premier Sports’ team. He gave the children in Diamond Class a taster session in archery and frisbee and Emerald Class a taster session in archery and fencing. It was a cold but enjoyable experience and good fun was had by all.
Rev Graham’s Leaving Assembly
It was a sad but celebratory day when we all wished Reverend Graham and his wife Mandy a happy retirement at our service held at Fleggburgh Church. The children made and presented Reverend Graham with a memory box full of their memories of him and the older pupils wrote and read prayers.
We would all like to thank Reverend Graham for all the support and guidance he has provided everyone at Fleggburgh School and we wish him and Mandy a Happy Retirement.
Cross Country Competition
A cold and wet Friday in October, eleven children from Diamond Class travelled to Fairhaven Primary School to represent the school in the Acle Cluster cross country event.
Year 3/4 ran 925 meters around a muddy field and Year 5/6 ran 1225 meters. Mrs Glover and Mrs Yassin cheered us on and whilst we didn’t win any medals, they said they were very proud of our efforts. We all ran our hardest and everyone of us ran the whole distance.
Our training proved fruitful as Leigha received a bronze medal!
GR8 AS UR
Jackie and the team from GR8 AS UR visited us on Wednesday the 5th of October. We had a special, Fun Day in school where we were taught new songs and the STAR steps. We have been using these skills to help us in our play.
Diamond class made a film about their wonderful potato project. It explains all they learned over the year. They had great fun making it!
