Saxmundham Free School visit

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Saxmundham free school pupils this afternoon.  They took time out of their busy timetable to read their favourite picture books to Classes 2 and 3.
As you can see from the photos below, the children clearly enjoyed their afternoon.  Thank you so much.

Everlasting Light 2016

To top off a busy day, 18 children, plus parents and staff, met at The Spa Pavilion, Felixstowe for the finale of all the hard work on the Everlasting Light project.
Once again, we were stunned at the number of people, who gave their time and expertise to ensure the concert went smoothly.
But, again, we were over-whelmed by the performance of our children, in fact all the children on stage last night.  Despite the long day, the children sung their socks off, bringing tears to the eyes of those watching.  We all experienced a huge feeling of pride, and had a most magical evening.

Everlasting Light is the 2016 Suffolk schools and churches charity music project in aid of Tearfund.

Kelsale Christmas Fayre 2016

Wow, what a busy day.  The school was packed with festive cheer, as people piled into the school to try their luck on the stalls and raffle, sample the delicious mince pies and sausage rolls, and maybe even pay a visit to our special visitor, Father Christmas!
There were some initial teething problems with the printing of photos with Father Christmas, but this was solved as soon as it was possible to. If you didn't receive your photograph, either take the image from the file below, or contact the school office, and we will organise a print for you.

A huge thank you to Fiona Wilson, Carla Denny and the other valuable members of the School friends for their hard work, both on the day, but equally importantly, the tireless efforts in the weeks leading up to this mamouth event.
Without the hard work for the Kelsale Friends, chidlren in the school would not have access to some of those extra, memorable experiences: Trips which are financially supported, equipment purchased and time given.  It is very much appreciated.

Christmas Decoration Day 2016

I can't believe this has come around again, and another year has passed.  We shook out the tissue paper, collected the paper plates and rustled up some googly eyes ready to make Kelsale 'Christmasy'.  After an early morning wrestle with the Christmas tree, we were ready.
As you can see from the photos, the children were fully focused on the tasks and produced some beautiful pieces to decorate the school, all ready for the Christmas Fayre on Saturday (10-12pm).

We look forward to seeing you all there.

Apple Harvest 2016

The apple trees on the school field produced a glut of fruit this year.  Mrs Taylor and groups of children went out onto the school field and picked the apples and collected the windfalls.  The children then spent some time peeling and chopping the apples to give to Lucy in the kitchen to incorporate into puddings. This sounds delicious.  We can't wait.

Year 3/4 walk along the Smuggler's pathway

Despite the possibility of poor weather,  years 3 and 4 wrapped up in their wet weather gear and took the coach to Snape.  Here they walked the pathway, as local smugglers would have done many years ago, visualising what it may have been like in the cold of night.
They then moved onto Sizewell and Dunwich, stopping in at the Dunwich museum to discover more about the ever changing (and diminishing) coastline.
Well done to Mrs Rolfe and other members of staff for giving the children a try insight and a huge thank you to the parent helpers for taking the time to help us out.
