Sports Day

July 14th, 2017

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.

They read war poetry, discussed their meanings then decided which poem would be the best one to perform with actions. Working together they decided how to position themselves on the stage, which lines, words and phrases should be emphasised to portray the meaning, and how they could achieve this using voice and actions. The poem was brilliantly performed at the festival on the 8th February 2016, where they achieved a Silver Certificate.

Harvest Festival

October 9th, 2015

Friday the 9th of October was Harvest Festival for all in Fleggburgh School. The theme for our harvest festival this year was ‘POTATOES’!

The day began with small groups of children from Reception to Year 6 making potato scones and fruit scones ready for harvest tea. Everyone worked well together as a team and it was lovely to see the older pupils encouraging and supporting the younger pupils to take part. Whilst scones were being made, the rest of the school prepared and decorated their harvest boxes ready for church.

In the afternoon we carried our boxes up to Fleggburgh St. Margaret’s Church, which was full of our parents, family and the village community, and placed them at the altar. Reverend Graham led the harvest service. Year 3 and 4 began by telling everyone how to grow potatoes, Year 5 and 6 continued by explaining how potatoes are harvested using their knowledge from visiting Henry Alston’s Farm where they saw potatoes being harvested, and Emerald Class finished by singing a song about eating potato products we have in our school dinners.

We all then returned to school for a wonderful afternoon tea of our potato and fruit scones with butter, jam and cream. They tasted yummy!
