The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and a land ambulance were called to Northfield St Nicholas Primary School, St Margaret's Road, Lowestoft, at 1pm on Monday.
Headteacher Jackie Cutchey said the youngster was playing with his friends when the wood went into his jaw.
“He needed minor treatment and went home again straight away. He came in to see us and is quite well,” she said.

Simon Gray, chief executive of the EAAA, said: “This was a very distressing accident for the little boy and we were happy to play our part in helping him.
“Anglia One is a spacious air ambulance which means that when we need to transport children, as in this case, we are able to bring a parent with them, which is comforting for both.
“We hope he will make a swift recovery and soon be back at school with his friends.”
