Sports Relief  - Friday 24th March 2014
On 21st March 2014 the children were invited to come into school wearing a sporting outfit of their choice and bring a donation of £1.00 towards Sports Relief. Thank you to everybody for their kind donations. We had ballet dancers, rugby players and horse riders! 

Later in the day all of the children took part in a Cross Country run. It was fantastic to see the children rise to the challenge, cheer each other on and support one another. Well done to every single runner!

Class 3 & 4 Dance Project

Michelle Stewart, a PE teacher from Copleston, has been in school this half term with Classes 3 and 4. They have been working on a dance project and will be working towards a performance on the last day of term before the Easter Holidays. Michelle has appealed to the children’s creativity and interests and it has been fantastic seeing the dances which have been created and perfected. The children have thoroughly enjoyed having Michelle in and we thank her very much for her hard work and energies.

Cross Country -  Thursday 13th March 2014
Sixteen of our children went to Hollesley Primary School to take part in a Cross Country event. Hollesley has a rather big hill for the children to overcome but all of the children did extremely well with some exceptional performances being put in by our children. I cannot mention them all but… Well done to…

Kitty Lake who was drafted in at the last minute and came 14th, Kieron Ramsey who came 8th, Daisy Attwater who came 12th, Ellie Richards who came 13th and William Brotherton who came 13th.

A great performance by all! All of the children should feel proud if their individual achievements.

Shared Reading -  Thursday 13th March 2014

On Thursday 13th March we had another successful shared reading session. The children read with their partners; older children reading with younger ones. There was excellent support from parents who came to read with their children also. A lovely event which was very much enjoyed by all once again.



Handball Club

We have set up a very successful Handball club on a Monday after school for the Years 5 and 6s. They are thoroughly enjoying having their coaching from GB handballer Louise Jukes and it is great to see their game improve. We hope that they will continue enjoying the sport and that some may in the future look to take it on further at Suffolk One.

Fairtrade Day

On 28th February, Grundisburgh Primary School celebrated ‘Fairtrade Day.’ Across the school the children learnt about the importance of buying Fairtrade goods and how we as a ‘Fairtrade School’ support the charity.

The Fairtrade council ran a cake stall at the end of the day which had many banana related products which supported the Fairtrade fortnight theme, ‘Make Bananas Fair.’

Miss Oakley would like to thank the Fairtrade Council for their help with the stall and all of the children, parents and classes who kindly donated to the cake stall. 

We raised £134.33 and will be discussing at our next Fairtrade meeting how we will use the money.

Football & Netball Matches Against Melton

On 27th February the school played Melton Primary School at Football and Netball. There was a real buzz about the school and both sports were well supported. 

The footballers played in two games against the Melton children. Both games were of an extremely good standard. The first game was a 1-1 draw. The second game was won by Grundisburgh 5-0. 

The netball was an extremely exciting game for us. We played very well after out winter break and won the game convincingly, 18–2. 

Melton were excellent rivals and a lovely, polite school to play against. 

We now look forward to our next matches against Woodbridge Primary this coming Thursday 6th March.

Basketball Tournament

We competed in a basketball tournament for local primary schools at Farlingaye in February. Our team was made up of 12 children from Year 6, who showed great competitive spirit and played extremely well, despite an injury! We came 4th out of 7 teams. Well done to the 
basketball team!
