Girls Inter-school Football Tournament

7 teams played a tournament in the mud, wind and rain last week on the SRH school field.

The matches were played in an excellent spirit by all the girls.
They didn't seem to mind the conditions.



Framlingham finished level on points with St Botolphs but came runners-up by a narrow margin.



Kite Flying Class KM

Making the most of the glorious Autumnal weather today, Class KM tested out their beautiful kites on the field and looked for Autumn treasures. Sometimes, when we tried to fly the kites amongst the trees, we had to work out how to untie the kite strings as they got tangled up in the trees.

We made kites as someone suggested in our phonics lesson that kites start with k and perhaps we could make some…
The skills we developed when making them were numerous. We learnt how to fold complicated folds, print using rollers and leaves and follow instructions.

Anglo Saxon Houses

In these photos you can see some of the amazing Anglo-Saxon houses constructed by children in class PL, which include realistic features such as thatch, wattle and daub. You are welcome to visit our classroom to see all the houses which have been made.

 





Anglo-Saxon bread-making

In class PL we have followed a traditional Anglo-Saxon recipe to make bread. The Anglo-Saxons grew wheat, barley and rye, which could be used to make flour. Our bread contained rye flour and also flax seeds and honey, to make it more authentic.

District Schools Cross-Country

The annual district cross-country race took place this morning at Framlingham College with about 400 children from 10 schools taking part across various age groups.
The weather was good but it was very wet and muddy underfoot - perfect cross-country conditions!

Any runner finishing in the top 10 in their age group goes through to a regional final.
We had 19 children qualify.


Any runner in the first 3 received a medal.
This year we had a gold, 2 silvers and a bronze - excellent performances.












The races also doubled up as our inter-house team competition.
Howard (above) were the winning team with Hitcham 2nd , Mills 3rd and Bulstrode 4th.
Well done to all 79 runners from SRH Framlingham.
A special thanks to all the Framlingham parents for helping around the course and at the finishing line. Thanks also to Mr Byer for some of the action photos.
