Year 5 Easter Story Performance at St. Mary's Church Lawford

Year 5 performed their version of the Easter story at Lawford Church this week. The whole school walked down to the church to see their first performance and then the parents watched the afternoon performance. This story was delivered with sensitivity, emotion and the singing complemented this portrayal very well. You did us proud Year 5.

Year 5 Easter Performance March 27th


On Friday 23rd March 2018 the school took part in raising money for the Sports Relief charity. Children came dressed in their sports clothes and completed an obstacle course in return for donating money. Our lovely kitchen staff made a themed biscuit for each child and member of staff and an impressive £385 in total was raised for this worthy cause. Thank you to everyone who took part in this and helped us to raise this sum of money in one day.

The Lawford Leopards


Well done to our spelling team The Lawford Leopards for taking part in the East Bergholt High School Spelling Bee. Although we did not come back to school with any trophies, the team did very well and put their amazing spelling skills to good use. Thank you to Thomas Francis, a past pupil, for joining us and being part of our team.

British Science Week

Celebrating the launch of British Science week (12-16 March), with a theme of Explore and Discover, our school assembly looked at famous scientists from the local region. We then conducted a test entitled Astro Nappies, testing the best nappies for astronauts, which they wear when working outside the ISS.

The Tempest at Lawford C of E Primary School!

Craig from the West End in Schools company came in to school on Tuesday to teach the children about 'The Tempest' - and what a day we had! Children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 were taken through a part of the story and this culminated in a whole school performance of the play which was enjoyed by all. We would like to thank the PTA for funding this whole school enrichment day.


Mrs Wenden and Mrs Woods visited Kiburu Primary School in Kenya over February half term.

Young Voices Choir Raise the Roof at the O2!

Well done to our Young Voices Choir who danced and sang their hearts out at the O2 in London last night. You were amazing and we are very proud of you all. It was an evening to remember when we sang along with Natalie Williams, M4GNETS (vocal harmony beatboxing group) and Alfie Sheard who is only 16. This is the first year we have performed at a Friday night concert and we hope the choir enjoyed a weekend to recover after their energetic and late night. Thank you to Mrs Woods and Mrs Beard for their hard work in teaching the choir the songs.

Year Four Have Fun at Flatford

Well done to our fabulous Year 4 children who have just returned from a residential at Flatford Mill. You were great company and a pleasure to be with and you made us smile. I am sure that your parents are looking forward to seeing and hearing all about it at your sharing assembly later on in the term. Happy memories have been made and I hope that you all caught up on your sleep over the weekend!

Connecting Classrooms - Our Kenyan Partnership


We have received a grant from the British Council to take part in the 'Connecting Classrooms' project. As part of this project, two members of staff are funded to work with a school in Kenya. Mrs Woods and Mrs Wenden will be travelling out to Kenya with 16 other schools at half term to meet and work alongside Kiburu Primary School. As part of our project, children in KS2 looked at the issue of hunger and wondered if world hunger could ever end. Children in FS and KS1 looked at the problems different countries face in terms of access to clean water. Please visit the class pages and ''Recent Events' to see some photographs of their learning.

Year 3 and 4 visit local archaeological investigations

Children in Years 3 and 4 recently visited the archaeological investigations that are taking place on land adjacent to the school, prior to planned building works.

The children met one of archaeologists carrying out the investigations and were interested to see pieces of pottery and areas showing evidence of fire/cooking that have been discovered.

Further investigations will take place over the next few years as work progresses and we hope to have the opportunity to visit again later in the process.

Phonics Evening for Parents

On Tuesday 10th October Mrs Beard led an evening for parents to support their knowledge of how we teach phonics at school. Hopefully our parents went away knowing a little bit more about phonemes, digraphs and slit digraphs. Whilst being competent at phonics is essential for reading, we reiterated the fact that sharing or reading a book to your child is the most valuable activity parents can do  together to encourage the love of reading.
