Copdock Weekly Update 11/02/2022


On Tuesday 10 children from Foxes class took part in a basketball tournament at Inspire in Ipswich.
After winning all 5 of their matches, Copdock were the overall winners.
It was a really exciting competition with all the children having to push themselves all the way through.  They represented our school perfectly through their attitude and fair play.  A great result.

If your child is in Rose's group (the children know which group they are in) for swimming could you please send in for Monday's lesson a t-shirt and shorts or a long sleeved top and bottoms please.

Woodpeckers Trip

Don't forget Woodpeckers need to wear their school jumpers/cardigans over their white polo shirts with tracksuit bottoms/waterproof trousers and appropriate footwear.  They will also need a packed lunch and a drink.  Please ensure an LFD is carried out in the morning as per the letter.

PTA Meeting

The PTA have their next meeting on Wednesday at 8pm - if you'd like to come along it will be held in the school hall, if it would be easier for you to join virtually, the link is here.  Remember, the more members, the lighter the load.

Burgers For Lunch

Next Friday we have our pre-ordered menu - the deadline for ordering was today.  If you did not repond to the form which was on the newsletter for the last 2 weeks, you will need to send a packed lunch on the day.

World Book Day

During the first week back from half term it is World Book Day.  Our caterers are offering a special menu to mark the day on the Thursday - please see attached, or the posters around school!  This menu if NOT a pre-order one, it can be ordered on the day.  Please note that the Five Salad Items will not be available - a pea and sweetcorn mix will take it's place.  The vegetarian bolognese will also be served with pasta bows, and the chocolate crunch will be served with chocolate custard!  We will be marking the day on Friday - look out for more details on next week's half termly newsletter.

Quiet Lanes Suffolk

Please see the attached leaflet which is asking for your help to try to gain Quiet Lane status for three of our village roads - part of Back Lane, part of Church Lane and Folly Lane.  If you would like to know more please join the meeting on Thursday 24th February at 7:30pm using the Zoom meeting details on the flyer.  Your views would be appreciated if you could spare a few minutes to respond to this short survey.


Hopefully you will have seen the leaflets sent home earlier this week about helping the school to receive a free tablet.  Thank you to the 4 families who have already agreed to have a board.  We need another 6 to receive the tablet.  Please see the leaflet, or previous newsletter for how to join the scheme.
