THIS term we are looking at ‘Down in the Woods’. During this week we have been looking at ‘The Gruffalo’ story, and have taken part in a “Sponsored Gruffalo Walk”. The children had to hunt for pictures on the school field all relating to the story, and once they’d finished they celebrated with a special snack of “Scrambled Snake and Owl ice-cream” As you can see from the photo they have been having fun with some dressing up too. To continue our theme we are hoping later this term to take the children to Dunwich woods. This week we have also celebrated World Book Day, the children dressed up as their favourite story book character and they shared

some of their favourite stories with each other – they looked fantastic and really enjoyed themselves. Ilketshall


also known as ‘Owlets’ is a registered charity and have been established since 2002, and was Ofsted rated in 2018 as 'Good'.

After some fantastic fundraising and generous donations we have secured funding for a new modular building (currently we share facilities with Ilketshall St Lawrence reception class). The new building will be in the grounds of the primary school, although run independently, and our fundraising efforts now will go towards resources that are needed for the building. We currently offer every weekday afternoon from 12.15pm – 3.15pm, the new build will enable us to extend

our hours, which we are hoping to have up and running for September. We welcome children from the age of 2 until they start reception. The children learn through play and are always encouraged to show their individualities and unique qualities, we aim to build their self-confidence and develop their skills whether it be personal or social. We offer a

caring, safe, educational, stimulating and of course friendly environment, supported by the Early Years Foundation stage framework. If you would like any more information, book a visit, or to register on our waiting list please contact us on owletspreschool@hotmail. or please call the main school on 01986 781315 and leave a message.

Beccles U3A

GRAHAM Higgins, who has been an active magistrate for 25 years, gave a talk at the February meeting about the

work and history of

magistrates. He explained that in 1361 magistrates

were appointed

to provide local justice. Prior to this communities had to wait over two years in Suffolk for the visit of a judge from London. Only serious cases, such as

murder or assault, were tried by courts. The offender would be hanged and his property seized by the crown. Clerics were tried by an ecclesiastical court

where the penalties

were lighter. Proof of holy orders was the ability to read and recite the 51st Psalm but anyone claiming to be a cleric to avoid a criminal court was branded on the hand so that they

could only commit a

crime once. This led to the practice of holding up a right hand when swearing an oath. By the end of the 18th Century people could be hanged for over 200 crimes. A more humane punishment was

thought to be transportation. Initially in 1787 petty criminals were sent to America and later to Australia.

On a positive

mentioned how ‘street pastors’ were helping to stop violence escalating outside pubs etc. To conclude Graham then

read out a fictitious case and asked the U3A audience to give their feedback as to what action they recommended.
