Staff and pupils donated a lock of their hair from their first haircut after lockdown

Sports Week -Climbing Wall

During the week 21 -25 June the whole school participated in an excellent sports week all within class bubbles organised by Mrs C. Brafield.  The children were able to learn circus skills, tap dance, street dance, football, foot golf, climbing a tall vertical wall, volleyball with Michelle Laybourne an olympic champion and Mrs Knight accompanied each class on their Daily Mile.  After all the circumstances globally, this was not just physically but mentally and socially beneficial for the children and staff

Our Nursery enjoyed their Easter bonnet parade, singing and sharing a lovely poem with signing. Well done children. You all looked great.

Our Reception class also enjoyed their Easter bonnet parade and engaged in a variety of Easter activities in the creative area.  It's great to see such happy children.

British Legion Poppy Appeal 2020

DSC03200

This is a very important part of our school year.  Mrs Knight led a remote assembly and classes completed a variety of learning.  Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 created poppies using different media.

Year 1 have been remembering the soldiers who fought in the war.  The children collected leaves and painted them to represent poppies for Armistice Day.  They weaved the leaves and hung them from their friendship tree.

Mrs Pip Davies from the British Legion visited to thank the children.  'From the Fallen' was read and Elgar's 'Nimrod' was listened to on Armistice Day; the whole school were silent and respectful including Nursery children.

Little Troopers

Little Trouper

It is important to acknowledge the services children however many there are in school.  Little Troopers, a charity supporting services children led a "virtual afternoon" of activities for our families who were able to unite with service children across the country.  A live radio interview took place with BBC Radio Suffolk

Crafty Foxes Visited Year 4s to do an art activity making a rain gauge to link with their science learning

Thank you Sexton’s Manor Year 4 class for having me this afternoon.  You have been the best behaved, most enthusiastic class I have visited so far.  A helpful teacher, teaching assistants and a class full of interested and engaged children throughout made my job a very enjoyable one.  Everybody offered a please and thank you without being prompted and interesting questions and helpful solutions to problems were discussed throughout the session.  The children were patient whilst they waited for the next instructions and everyone was very respectful of each other and myself.

Well done everyone. £252 was raised. The children had great fun wearing red and telling jokes. A joke fest across the whole school virtually was enjoyed by all.

A huge thank you to Suffolk County Council, the PTA and a very kind grandad who donated funds for this new piece of playground equipment.  The children are loving it.

The Bishop's Visit

The Right Reverend Martin Seeley, Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, visited us and joined our Music Therapy Group session with our friends from St Peter's House.  

Later he watched us taking part in our Outdoor Learning and answered questions on "What it is like to be a Bishop."
