On Thursday 17th March, eight of our Year 5 & 6 pupils participated in the prestigious 'UK National CoSpace Championship' hosted by BT Education. This was the largest CoSpace Championship to take place anywhere in the world so far this year. After a closely fought competition, we are pleased to announce that one of our teams was crowned 'UK National CoSpace Virtual Robotics KS2 Champions 2016'.
Perfect tree planting weather! We couldn’t believe our luck that the first day back after the Spring half term was so mild and sunny.
Charlotte Ennals from the Norfolk Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group approached our school several weeks ago with a ‘Breaking New Ground’ project which is Heritage Lottery funded to provide landscape projects in the heart of the Brecks area. It provided us at school with some Scots Pine saplings to plant in the school grounds. This was so we could help continue the tradition of planting pine tree lines in our local area.
On Wednesday 30th September, twenty pupils from Years 4, 5 & 6 participated in a Drama Workshop at the Unitarian Meeting House in Bury St. Edmunds. This event was part of the preparations for their upcoming performance of 'Henry V' at the Theatre Royal in Bury St. Edmunds during the Shakespeare Schools Festival on Tuesday 20th October.

We recently had two parents come into school to raise the issue of a near miss incident in Bellflower Crescent, because a parent had attempted to reverse park directly outside the school gate, in a coned off area.
We really do not want to wait until a child is injured and would ask all parents to take increased care in parking and driving responsibly on all roads surrounding the school. The Executive Headteacher has again raised this issue with the Local Authority to actively pursue an improvement to the safety of the roads around the school.
