AB's Potatoes

You may have noticed our potatoes growing in AB's outside area. We planted these back in March. Last week they flowered which meant they were ready. We harvested the potatoes and then went to speak to Mrs Aldred to see whether she would cook them for us. Mrs Aldred kindly said yes and boiled the new potatoes for us. We ate them for our lunch today. Here are some pictures of us munching our yummy potatoes.


JC Banham Zoo

Suffolk Day - Class LC

and here's our bunting..

Suffolk Day - Class RH

On Suffolk Day, class RH discussed what they love about Suffolk and created a giant list together. 
We then looked at google maps on the computers and discovered where we live, the border of Suffolk, and how many miles and hours away our next holiday was from Suffolk. After break we coloured in images related to the beaches of Suffolk.

Thank you for the support!

Thank you to the community that supports us here at Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham's Primary School.
Today, our Year 5 pupils hosted a wonderful ‘Thank You Tea’ for all the amazing volunteers and benefactors who help and contribute to our school. 
Tea, cake, thank you cards and entertainment from the very talented children in Year 5 was thoroughly enjoyed by all the volunteers.
Without the fantastic support that we receive from the local community, governors and parents we would be unable to give the children all the terrific opportunities that they receive.
THANK YOU to all those who help with reading, art, cookery, swimming, sport, sewing, singing, Hitcham’s Holy Horrors, gardening and much much more.

A Short Ride in a Fast Machine

As KS1's topic is currently 'Bright Lights, Big City', we have been looking at different types of transport. In music today we listen to a piece of music by John Adams, called 'A Short Ride in a Fast Machine'. When we listen we thought that the music was taking us on a journey. This got us thinking about different ways we could travel. We listened to the music and created pictures of what we were travelling in and where we might go. 
Take a look below.


This week class AB have been learning about Sukkahs. We found out why Jewish people build them and what they do with them. We then made our own Sukkahs and thought about what we would think about/do when we were inside of them. Some of us thought we would share a meal with our families. Others loved the idea of camping outside under the stars and being able to thank god for what he created.
Here are some of the Sukkahs we made.

Banham Zoo - Key Stage 1 (ClassesJC, LH & AB)

We saw lots of different animals; snow leopards, lemurs and cheetahs but our favourite animals were the Rainbow Lorikeets.  We loved their colourful feathers and when they flew towards us they looked like splashes of coloured paints.  The giraffes surprised us because they were extremely tall and different tones of yellows and brown.  We couldn't decide if the neck was longer than the legs.

Investigating fish

We have been thinking about the creatures that live in the sea in Nursery.

Today Mrs Cooper brought in a dab, a flat fish from the North Sea and a herring and some prawns for us to look at.

The children were able to spot the differences between the two fish as we looked closely at the eyes, scales, fins, tails, mouths and gills.

The prawns were cooked and so we talked about how their colour had changed and looked at their eyes, heads, tails and legs. They looked very different again to the fish.

Tomorrow we are going to be cooking tuna fishcakes so we can taste some fish too.
