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!
Congratulations to Hadia Muhammad for winning the Year 6 Young Scientist of The Year Award 2016. Hadia received her award at Nottingham University.

Southwold staff and pupils are very proud of Hadia!
Here are a few photos from our Community Food Fest, which we held on Wednesday in our school hall and dining room. The weather could have been better, but the food was wonderful and so was the company!
Every class made some food to sell and decided on prices. they also provided the recipes so they can make the same things at home. We had paella, soup, fruit salad, cakes, Muffins and home made jammy dodgers!
Our parents were absolutely wonderful and this lovely lady made us Jerk Chicken, Rice and Peas, Plantain and Jamaican dumplings! Delicious! Other parents also provided us with Samosas and delicious cakes
A huge thanks to the four families that took part in the Bake-off too. Our Judges took a while to decide on their favourite...
Congratulations to the runners up...
And also to the winners
Thanks to Kate Shaw for all her help and support in getting Bronze Food For Life Award, which she kindly awarded us at the Food Fest.
