The pupils from Year 1 visited the Haverhill food bank to present the donations kindly given by parents at the Harvest Festival today. The pupils were given a short tour of the Foodbank and were able to see how the food was stored and given a short talk on how the food is distributed.
On Wednesday we hosted our first U9s hockey fixture of the year with Gosfield and Cambridge International School as the visiting teams.
Our hockey team was made up of year 4, year 3 and even one year 2 player. Our young side did not falter at the tough competition and the bigger sides.
On Tuesday our senior girls played hockey against Cambridge International School at home.
An early goal in the first half from Rosie, from a fabulous cross by Milly, and fantastic saves from Timia all kept us ahead early on.
Year 5 went on a trip to Kentwell Hall last week to find out about life in Tudor times. We learnt a lot during our visit and particularly enjoyed finding out gruesome facts! The children had a wonderful day and gained much from the experience. We look forward to our next trip.Read More
