Bildeston Primary School update – January

Christmas Lunch

Christmas lunch was enjoyed by all at Bildeston Primary on Thursday 10 December in their class ‘bubbles’. They all made festive hats to wear for the occasion and had crackers donated by Squirrels Coaches. Goldcrest class had to self-isolate but they will not miss out on their festive lunch. Plans are in place for them to enjoy theirs on
Wednesday 6th January and we have saved them their crackers!!

Christmas Assembly

Our virtual Christmas assembly was held on Friday 11 December for all classes and parents were able to join us too! Each class completed a short festive poem and Reverend Elke joined us for a Christmas blessing.

Christingle Assembly

Our virtual Christingle assembly was held on Thursday 17 December to all classes and across the federation to Whatfield classes. Each child made their own Christingle for the assembly and took them home afterwards. Each child collected change in a Children’s Society candle for the charity.


We couldn’t get to a Pantomime, so the Pantomime came to us!! Ms Golding, as her final treat before her retirement, paid for the New Wolsey Theatre tickets to show “The Snow Queen” virtually to all of our children, even those who were self-isolating. Everyone had ice cream too! Thank you Ms Golding x
