Pupils from

St Edmund's and Mendham participate in Hoxne Music Festival

On Wednesday 9th March, the year 3's and 4's from St Edmund's and Mendham went to Hallowtree for their residential to Hallowtrees. It was a great success and all children and staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves despite the weather being awful on the Wednesday. We were very lucky to have glorious weather on the Thursday and the children all enjoyed their activities of rock climbing, abseiling, archery and grass sledging. They had a great time learning new skills and working as a team and we have had some great pieces of writing from the children even though we were all very tired on the Friday! I am looking forward to next year's residential.

Anglo Saxons arrive at Withersdale Village Hall...... 

Last Friday Beech, Rowan and Sycamore were very lucky to take part in an Anglo Saxon Day at Withersdale village hall. All of the children and adults dressed up in Anglo Saxon clothing and were transported back to the Anglo Saxon Days with the help from Mark Halls from Portals to the Past. 

The children took part in a variety of different activities, such as story telling, fact finding and playing an Anglo Saxon board game. All of the children had a great day and were very well behaved. They really embedded their learning of the Anglo Saxons and enjoyed every moment of it. 





Seedlings have been to visit Stradbroke Fire Station and had an amazing time trying on uniform, looking through the equipment on the engine and using the hoses.

CED The Queen's 90th Birthday





Report from the Librarians....After our visit to Diss Publishing to select new books for the library suitable for each year group we began to organise events for World Book Day.  We asked everyone to dress up as their favourite book character and make a donation to Book Aid International. All the staff dressed up as 'Wally'  We lead an assembly in the morning to explain the activities of the day.  Children were put into small groups of mixed ages.  Each group then did each of the four activities:-

- Drama, acting out classic story books

- Making Book Marks

- Designing book tokens for a national competition

- Where's Wally Treasure Hunt with clues to book titles.

We had a themed lunch with Mr Stink chicken and pasta and Willywonka Chocolate cakes.. We also had our pictures taken by a newspaper photographer. Everyone enjoyed the day because it was fun and exciting and brilliant. Some of the costumes were Max the Wolf, Ruby & Garnet from Double Act, Alice in Wonderland, Hettie Feather, Bear Grylls, The BFG, Sophie and Funnybones.


Finding out about the outside world, enjoying fun and games, toasting snacks on a camp fire, working and playing together - all part of the KS1 residential at Ringsfield for members of Pine and Oak Class. 










Harvest Festival

The pupils of St Edmund's worked together in their House teams to create beautiful floral arrangements that were exhibited at Hoxne Church, along side other arrangements by members of the community. The pupils considered the theme of Harvest and our countryside as they made their exhibits. Parents genourously donated the beautiful flowers for the arrangements. The church looked spectacular as the full congregation enjoyed the Flower Festival and Harvest Service.



Undeterred by the weather, Pupils of Rowan Class attended Bikeability training, a scheme organised by Suffolk County Council to ensure our young riders are safe on their bicycles. 






CED with the theme of Languages.  Pupils from both schools joined together in their House teams, learning songs in another european language, completing various activities and thinking about other customs and cultures.
