Bikeability

Well done to the Year 6 pupils who completed their Bikeability training in the cold weather! The course gave them skills with road safety, cycling correctly and understanding other road users. As always, we are proud of the effort that they put in and the excellent behaviour out and about in the village.

Open The Book explain Epiphiny

We welcomed our ‘Open The Book’ team today who came into assembly and spoke about the magi visiting baby Jesus.

The Western Church began celebrating the Epiphany in the 4th century where it was, and still is, associated with the visit of the magi (wise men) to the infant Jesus when God revealed himself to the world through the incarnation of Jesus. According to Matthew 2:11 they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

For many church traditions, the season of Epiphany extends from 6 January until Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent leading to Easter.

 

 

Year 5 and 6 visit BT

Some of our Year 5 and 6 pupils went to BT in Martlesham yesterday to work on their CrumbleBot skills. Congratulations to Callum and James for winning the line tracker competition.

A CrumbleBot is a robot that introduces children to robotic platforms. They have light sensors and use croc-clip to connect points. This builds on our work in school, using various robots to assist in pupils learning.

 

Welcome back to 2017

We hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable Christmas break and look forward to the term ahead. Please ensure you are well wrapped up for the colder months! Congratulations to all for a fantastic 97.5% average school attendance last term.
