We had a fantastic day at the Eco centre at Screveton with our year 1 class on 5th July. We found out what wheat is and saw it growing, Then used some to grind some flour. We made pizza dough from flour and chose toppings and ate them for our lunch!
After lunch we met pigs, goats, guinea fowl and Chickens... Our favourite bit was collecting the eggs from the hen coops
A huge thank you to Julia and Simon, our hosts, for a wonderful, fun, activity packed day! We learned where so much of our food comes from!
On Friday 22nd July, 2016, our Year 5 pupils attended their final exhibition of collaborative work linked to the Simon Starling exhibit. They saw their end pieces and shared their experience with other local schools.
The children initially visited the Nottingham Contemporary to see Simon Starling's exhibition, then they worked in school with Jo, a local artist, to create moving vehicles.
This is the first time Southwold Primary has worked in partnership with Nottingham Contemporary and we hope this exhibition is the first of many.
On Saturday 9th July 2016, thirteen staff and family members cycled 50 miles to raise money for school outdoor equipment.
There was heavy rain for the first three hours and we were soaked to the skin! But the mood was positive and we kept going.
It was a great day and staff felt a huge sense of achievement - we hope to have raised over £1500 for outdoor play equipment from this challenge alone. Look out for the next bike challenge next term, when we hope parents will join in!! Many thanks to Vision Education for providing us with 'Team Southwold' T-shirts!
