On National Poetry Day, Year 6 performed two poems: a traditional Harvest
refrain that the children sang in rounds and with appropriate actions, and
The Autumn by Elizabeth Barrett-Browning (1833), to which some children
created a dance, using 'Fields of Gold' by Sting as further inspiration.
Enjoy below some images and an audio recording of the pupils' performance.

Match report by team captain, Rebecca & Harrison
Ixworth marched on to the West Suffolk School Sports’ Partnership’s kwik cricket regional final after last week’s hard fought victory over Woolpit last. Four schools altogether competed at the spectacular Woolpit Cricket Ground on Wednesday 21st June. It was extremely hot and tiring!
Unfortunately Ixworth was beaten by an extremely good cricket team from Creeting St Mary Primary School. Although we lost the first match by only 21 runs, there was some great bowling and fielding from our team. Ixworth still had a match to play and fought for 3rd place. Sadly we lost again, but by just 15 runs (243-228) to Cedar Park Primary.
So we finished 4th out of 14 teams who competed in this year’s Kwik Cricket league, so we feel rather proud of ourselves! After all, many of our team have not played cricket before this year – but we will do so from now on!
Our children experienced the thrill and tensions surrounding the full election process this week, inaugurating a Class President and Vice President just one day after people in the United Kingdom went to the polls.
The children formed their own party groups and nominated candidates to stand for election to the posts of Class President and Vice President. They studied manifestos presented by the main political parties and identified key persuasive words and phrases, which they adapted to draft their own party manifesto. There was a leadership debate, when voters questioned each party group on the pledges that they made. Each party designed election posters, slogans and badges. The children and staff then visited our class polling station to cast their vote by secret ballot.
The parties contesting Dolphin Class’s Presidential Election and the total votes cast were:
