Football Club New Venue
We are very pleased that our Football Club has at last found a new home. 
From this Saturday 18th November Football Club will be held at Howard
Primary School, Beard Road, Bury St Edmunds, IP32 6SA.
New members are always welcome.
Here is a snippet of news from Football Club which is open to all year
groups.  As you can see the season is in full swing.
“Y4 played their second League game V Lawshall and achieved their
second win with a 4-1 victory. The team well supported by Y3 and Y2
players worked hard throughout the game, played some good football
and over the season I am sure will grow into an even better team. Special
mention to George Humpage for scoring 3 goals but well done to everyone
who all played their part. … Y5/Y6 United team played out a 1-1 draw
with Abbots Green Y6 in a game which probably could have gone either
way, but again a great effort from our team and good sportsmanship from
both sides … Y5/Y6 Flyers team lost heavily to Abbots Green Y5 …Well
done to all the children who played in this game. Flyers have faced 2 really
strong Y5 opposing teams in Hardwick and Abbots Green in their first 2
games, so a really difficult start. Special mention to John Hayhoe who
played in goal for the Flyers and despite the score produced some excellent
saves.”   ... Nov 2017

bikebilty 2
The Bikeability Trainers have been in school all week taking Year 5
pupils through Bikeability Levels 1 and 2 (the old cycling proficiency).
On day one they stayed in the playground and subsequently progressed
to cycling on the roads around the school. This is a great way for
children to learn how to use their bikes more safely and be confident
on the road. You can find out more about Bikeability here.

Drama Club
Year 5 and Year 6 have been taking part in an after school drama club
run in collaboration with the Theatre Royal.

We, along with two other local schools, are extremely fortunate to be
working with a playright, Shamser Sinha, to develop material which he
will use in his next play: Abebe's Space Rocket.

It is about a 7 year old girl, Abebe, and her 10 year old brother fleeing
from Eritrea and arriving in rural Suffolk, near Bury St Edmunds, as
refugees and living with a foster family. They go to school for the first
time in their lives and Abebe discovers science and space!

The children will get to watch their play being performed in the summer
and may also develop a piece of drama of their own as a response to this
play to show to parents later in the year... Nov 2017
