27th May 2022 - To celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, we had a special day of fun in school. We were all muddled up with children from all year groups and got to do lots of fun activities, from drawing the Queen on the computer, dancing, creating collages, or sketching some still life including an amazing Queen's Guard! In the afternoon, we all went out onto the field with crowns that we made for an afternoon tea treat and sang our special Song for the Queen that Mr Cole wrote for us. We have had a lovely day - check out the photos for just some of the fabulous things we've done!
8th March 2022 - Year 3 went on a class trip to Colchester Castle to find out more about what the town was like in Roman Britain. They had great fun exploring the temple vaults, building roundhouses and villas, and discovering loads of ancient Roman artefacts.
3rd March 2022 - World Book Day!
We hosted a 'Booked Potato' competition to celebrate World Book Day this year. Children were invited to decorate a potato as their favourite book character to bring in and share. Mr Clark and Mrs Gaffney judged the incredible 289 entries and chose their three favourites from each class. Well done to all of our winners - every single one of the 289 potatoes were amazing!
12th November 2021 - As part of their geography work, Year 4 recently completed a survey of the human features of Stowmarket to find out more about the benefits of living here. They reported their findings to the Mayor, Councillor Keith Scarff. It was lovely that each child got an individual letter referencing what they had been looking at. Thank you Stowmarket Town Council.
February Half Term 2020 - After our hard work fundraising, Mrs Gaffney was able to take lots of resources (and expertise!) to Ntendizi school in Rwanda. She had a fantastic time. You can see some of the pictures below.
Here at Combs Ford Primary we have lots of special events throughout the year. Some are for particular year groups and other are for the whole school.

This year, we are raising money for St Elizabeth's Hospice. We are creating our own Little Hoot owl for the trail in Ipswich - keep your eyes peeled for updates!
