This week, we have been doing an RE topic about Christmas and Tudors. We have found out about figures involved in the Christmas story and symbols linked to Christmas. Finally we discovered that some of the Tudor monarchs had a great impact on religion in England.

Here are the Kestrel Class entries, together with the Key Stage 2 Project Group.
A huge thank you to those who took part and those who arranged the competition. We are looking forward to the final!

This is another of our 100 memorable events...Bressingham truly does have talent!
Following are some photos from the final. It was amazing- fantastic support from children and parents/careers, superb announcers from our Key Stage 2 Project Group and three specially invited judges...

A day of excitement started with making our Mexican and English breads...
Preparing the tables for the tasting session, including questionnaires to get feedback about how the soups taste to inform our evaluations...
Thank you to all who visited to taste our soups and breads- there was such a lovely atmosphere in our classroom and the children really enjoyed sharing their foods with you...
Once our visitors had tasted, it was our turn!

Some Kestrel Class pupils took the lead of mixed age groups today, helping the younger children as they moved around the school to carry out different craft activities. Our purpose was to work together with older and/ or younger children and make decorations for home or school. As always, behaviour was exemplary and the children supported one another beautifully. Well done to all!

As part of our topic on Latin America, we are making soups and breads using seasonal ingredients from Mexico or the United Kingdom.
Today we have continued our research and preparations for next Tuesday's tasting session, to which our families will be invited!

Every class in the school had a session with Mr Massey today, learning different games from around the world. This will help us with ideas for new games to play at playtime, to help to keep us fit! At the end of the morning, everyone came together to show some of the games they had played.
Flags being held up show where games we learned about today are played. This isn't even all of the flags!
Here are some of us doing some French Skipping, with elastics. Mr Massey told us that this game actually originated in China about 250 years ago!
