It's the end of term! The children have worked really hard this year and are exhausted so we hope that you all enjoy a relaxing summer holiday.

If you are looking for something to do, there are lots of free activities for families locally. Try visiting a Suffolk library where you can sign up for the summer reading challenge - this is great to keep reading during the holidays. You can also visit Ipswich museums and parks, Needham Lake or explore the owl sculptures as part of 'The Big Hoot' in Ipswich. (Visit Hoot HQ on a Sunday afternoon and you may get a surprise!)
