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!
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.
On Thursday the 18th of April, Olly day came to visit the school and treated us to a magical road safety show. We learned to ‘be safe’ and ‘be seen’ at night. We saw why we need to wear cycle helmets and talked about how to cross the road safely.
On Friday the 15th of April, Fleggburgh CE Primary School celebrated being 150 years old. The day was celebrated by a wonderful church service attended by The Right Reverend Graham James, Bishop of Norwich and members of the school community, past and present. The service included the pupils discussing school life in 1866 and today, recollections of life in the 1920’s poetry written by Diamond Class, a bible reading and singing ‘The Dragon Song’, written especially for the occasion.
After the service, everybody returned to school to visit the classrooms to look at all the children’s work based on 150 years of the school and village. There were also old photographs and documents to look at and everybody enjoyed seeing how the school had altered and changed!
There was a special first showing of the ‘150 Years of Fleggburgh CE Primary School’ film, made by all the pupils in the school, with help from film maker Matthew Harrison followed by the cutting of the anniversary cake and a cup of tea.
On < Thursday the 17th of March the whole school travelled back in time and visited Cressingham Victorian School, where we all learned that life in this school in Victorian times would have been very different!
We spent a day as Victorian school children: chanting times-tables; completing handwriting exercises; singing hymns and eating traditional Victorian lunch of bread and cheese. In the afternoon, the boys had to do some technical drawing whilst the girls sewed lavender bags.
Whilst everyone thought it was fun being a Victorian school child for the day, they all agreed that they preferred school life in 2016!
There was a special feeling in the church on Friday the 4th of March when all the children in the school participated in a Mother’s Day church service. They sang songs, read poems, prayers, and gave their Mums a lovely daffodil posy to say thank you to them for all their hard work.
Everyone said that it was a lovely family service.
On Tuesday the 30th of November, Essex and Suffolk Water sent their Super Splash Heroes into school to talk to the children about saving water. Three super heroes taught the children how precious water is and the simple things they can do to help save it, like turning off the tap when they are brushing […]
