Goodbye (Maybe) to our wonderful Year 6 children.
A special assembly was held this morning (20th March) to say 'goodbye' to our Year 6 children.
Memories were shared, friendships celebrated, fun times were remembered as
Sam, Aran, Olivia, Elizabeth, Molly, Abby, Theo, Jack, Chloe, Memmi and Caoimhe
shared their thoughts about their time in school.
Miss Williams said how much we would all miss the Year 6's and wished them good luck as they go to High School.
Certificates and pens were presented to the children by Mrs. Reed and Mrs. Groves who echoed Miss Williams words.
(If we are able to return to school before the end of term, then the children will have another 'Farewell' assembly!)
On Friday 28th February four children from Otter Class went to Swaffham Prior School in Cambridgeshire to take part in a
'Greater Depth Writing Workshop.'
Children's author Mark Lowery, who is a teacher at Swaffham Prior school ran the workshop.
He has an MA in Writing for Children and his first two books--Socks Are Not Enough and Pants Are Everything--were both shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.
The children wrote individual poems and also worked in mixed groups to create a story called 'Jam Doughnuts.'

Otter Class put on an amazing display of Molly Dancing at Tilney All Saints Village Hall. They also acted out a play about Tom Hickathrift, a legend about a local giant who is buried in Tilney All Saints Church Yard.
They have been having workshops to learn all about Tom Hickathrift, the Fens and Molly Dancing.
Parents and friends were invited to attend the production.
Otter Class had a visit from 'Buddy the Speech Bubble' who taught the children to 'Speak Out and Stay Safe.'
Otter Class did an amazing assembly about Remembrance Day.
They told us why we commemorate Remembrance Day and why we wear poppies.
Some very patriotic songs were sung and some thought provoking poetry was read.
Otter Class ran their own German Cafe where invited guests attended and ordered their tea, coffee and cake in German.
It was lovely to see Mrs. Senior for a catch up.
Very well done to you all.
Year 6 from Tilney All Saints and Anthony Curton enjoyed a visit to Ely Cathedral.
Otter Class did an amazing performance of MacBeth for their parents and the rest of the school. They practised hard to learn their lines and also learnt some songs, which were all part of the performance. The children looked amazing in their costumes which added to the atmosphere of the play. Huge congratulations to everyone for a brilliant performance!
