There was something for all ages at Sutton St James Primary School as they approached the end of the educational year with a week to remember.

On the Tuesday we caught up with Key Stage 2 pupils at their dress rehearsal before they put on two performances of ‘Let Loose’ for their families.

The show, about what happens on a school residential trip, was well received and quite appropriate as the Year 5 and 6s went to Kingswood activity centre in Norfolk the following week.

On the Thursday the PTA and school chipped in together to bring a synthetic ice rink into school for the day.

The whole school enjoyed themselves for an afternoon, with reception pupils using toy penguins to help them get about.

In the evening parents joined in and there was also a barbecue and bouncy castle.

“It was the first time we’ve had the ice rink in,” said teacher Sandra Horsfield. “The weather was kind and it was a great success.”

The week ended with a special Roman day for Years 3 and 4 on the Friday.

They have been studying Roman life all term and enjoyed a day’s workshop involving dance and creative work.
