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.

Key Stage 2 pupils 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.

And the PTA and school chipped in together to bring a synthetic ice rink into school.

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.

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