We were so proud of our swimming team at the swimming gala today. They showed excellent sportsmanship, representing the school brilliantly. They were placed fifth out of ten overall and William won a bronze!

This is Taya and Mia's account of the morning.
    The Swimming Gala 2015

On Monday the 22nd of June , 8 swimmers from Wetheringsett Primary School all swam for the school in the Swimming Gala .

It was held at Diss Leisure Centre and 10 schools attended. In all of our races we were in heat 2.

Boys and girl races where at different times.

Taya and Jermaine didn’t take part in any races but they did join in in the Medley.The Medley is a relay race but each person out of four has to do a different stroke and there is nothing to pass between them.
        The children enjoyed themselves so much and hope to       
              Do it again soon . We came 5/10 overall.

Year 6 Farm Visit

Our good friends from Creeting St Mary, who we met on the brilliant London trip, very kindly invited us to join them on their farm day. One of Creeting's pupils, Izzy, was the daughter of the gentleman who ran the farm. Izzy's father, Robert was very welcoming and was one of the main people who we owe our great day to.

As we started the day, we were invited to find a seat on the trailer of Robert's tractor. We were taken around the farm and introduced to farm life.

After our journey around the gigantic farm, we returned to the area in which we set off. A man stood next to the tractor. He explained how technology has evolved on the farm and we were introduced to some of the farm's most recent technology such as drones.

Next we headed to the barn in which we were welcomed by a lovely bee keeper who talk to about, guess what, bees! After the shockingly interesting talk about bees we were finally welcomed to a most wanted lunch.

After that we saw where owls were being kept, the farm's pond, the farm's borrowed cows and their very own pigs, sheep and chickens. After all of that, our day at the farm was unfortunately over. We are extremely grateful for Creeting St Mary inviting us to their pupils' farm and for Robert arranging the whole thing for us!

Nursery Launch Fun Day

Lots of families came a long yesterday to enjoy the fun events to launch our nursery provision from September.


The sun came out for us and everyone had great fun.

 Popular activities included the ‘ice cream factory’, the teddy bear hunt and playing in the giant sandpit. One group of children even made a sand pyramid, complete with tunnels and booby traps!

More information about the new nursery can be found on our website .

Art Day

The children in our Ethos Committee suggested that we ought to replace the cloth that covers the table we use as a focus for our daily Collective Worship. We invited Rojo Art to come in and work with us to make on on the theme of God's Wonderful Creation. Children learnt how to make felt and each child made a piece of art that will be part of our new table cover. It will be fringed with tassels, beads and felt balls, also made by the children.
All the children loved making their felt pieces, selecting their colours in wool, spreading and layering them and then wetting, rubbing and rolling to shrink them into pieces of felt.

We can't wait to see the finished item!

Here it is! We love it!
