We have been thinking about the residential trip to Hilltop and what implications Covid-19 will have on that. We have been in touch with Hilltop to ask for their advice on whether it will be safe to go ahead with the trip. Currently the rules are that school trips can go ahead from September, but no overnight stays. This guidance may well change before November when we were planning to go to Hilltop.
Hilltop have said that they will contact us in September to discuss any changes that need to happen as they currently aren't open. It might be that we need to move the trip to later in the year, however this would come with an additional cost due to it being nicer weather and being closer to the peak season. We don't want to worry you about this, we just wanted to let you know. We will also consult with parents whether to go ahead with the trip if the increase in cost will be too much. In September we will find out more information from Hilltop and make new plans if we need to.

DEMAT PURPLE DAY
Some lovely pictures of Delilah. Isn't she cute?!
The reveal of the little lamb's name ...
Even in this difficult time there are always little glimmers of joy! Gertrude the school sheep has had a beautiful and very healthy lamb! She, yes the lamb is a girl, is absolutely stunning and I can’t wait for you all to meet her. Be prepared to have the school website filled with pictures of her. I just need to get my proper camera out to get some good photos.
Now we need your help! Currently, the little baby lamb has no name so we are asking you guys to e-mail Miss Williams with names beginning with D. We will then put your suggestions into a hat and I will then pick one out...I’ll try and film myself doing it!
I hope you are all keeping safe and well! Hope to see you all soon.
From Miss Williams

Goodbye (maybe!) to our wonderful Year 6's
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!)
Cross Country Event
We are very proud of Molly E, Molly H, Shereese, Evie W and Millie for representing our school
at Wisbech Grammar School for a Cross Country event on Friday 6th March.
Millie won the Year 3 girls' race and Evie came second. Molly E came 5th in the Year 5 girls' race, Molly H came 13th in the Year 6
girls' race with Shereese finishing at 25th place.
Molly H commented, 'We all had a great time and really enjoyed it, although we were very tired!'
A very big well done to you all!
World Book Day
World Book Day was celebrated and enjoyed as children dressed up as their favourite book characters, brought their favourite book in to share
and did lots of reading with their friends from other classes.
Our latest additions!
Cluster Swimming Gala
After having qualified at the Marshland Cluster swimming event in December, Lauren, Ruby, Alfie, Abby and Thomas-Arthur
spent the morning of 3rd February competing against other cluster qualifiers at the
West Norfolk School Sport and P.E. swimming gala.
After a fun filled, successful morning, the cluster came away with
eleven 1st place medals as well as several 2nd and 3rd places.
Well done to you all.
Mark Jones Day
Some children from Otter Class attended 'Mark Jones Day' in Ely on Saturday 25th January, 2020 where they showed their skills at Molly dancing to an attentive audience. Some years ago Cotswold Morris and Molly dancer Mark Jones tragically lost his life in a car accident and this Day of Dance, organised by Ouse Washes Molly Dancers in and around Ely, is regularly held in his memory. Molly is a style of dance historically done by Fenland farm workers to earn or extort money during the winter when there was little work. Since there was a need to keep their identities secret, they would black their faces with soot.
Olly Day and his Road Safety Magic Show
Olly Day visited our school to put on a great show with all the magic based around Road Safety themes. Olly uses some fabulous magic to promote ‘Stop, look and listen’, and ‘be bright at night’, he also dresses the children up in reflective clothing to show how important it is to ‘be seen and be safe’.
Otter Class from Tilney All Saints Primary School and Year 6 from Anthony Curton Primary School revived an ancient tradition of walking a plough through the village on Monday 13th January.
The plough was decorated and the children took turns to help push it to the church for a special service. Rev. Barbara Pearman blessed the plough; the children did some Molly Dancing and sang some songs.
A special candle was also lit.
A heritage fund grant was used to revive some of Tilney All Saints village's history and traditions.
The project is called 'Sharing the Plough.'
Some of our children showing all the wonderful new equipment that has been donated to our school.
Sincere thanks go to Amy Hackett, Coral Collison and Emma Wright for all their hard work in collecting prizes and organising the bingo.
Over £600 was raised at the event and we now have new Kindles, some wonderful play equipment to be used at lunchtime and also some items for use in the classrooms.
Everyone in school is so appreciative of the support from these ladies.
Thank you also to anyone who attended the bingo, donated prizes and have supported us is any way.
Some pictures from our Christmas Service in Tilney All Saints Church on 18th December, 2019.
A Very Special Visitor came to Tilney!
Tilney children sang their hearts out with Christmas songs in the hope that Santa would hear them and come and visit our school.
Some bells were ringing and the children were getting very excited, when Santa appeared!
He gave each child in the school a present of a selection box and a book.
Thank you Santa for coming to see us! Merry Christmas!
Big thanks to Helen for cooking a wonderful Christmas lunch. The children enjoyed eating delicious turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings. Crackers were pulled and party hats worn. Merry Christmas everyone!
Otter Class Assembly
Otter Class did a very interesting and informative assembly about Remembrance. They told us why we commemorate Remembrance Day which is on 11th November, they read some poems and sang some very patriotic hymns.
A very big well done to Otters!
Chocolate Sale in School!
Chelsea from Otter Class made some delicious chocolates and sweets to sell at school with the proceeds going to a Cancer Charity. She made a profit of £80 which is amazing! Very well done to Chelsea and thank you to everyone who bought some of her tasty wares.
A big well done to everyone who received a certificate this week and also to anyone celebrating a birthday.
Some guests from The Trinity Rotary Club came to an assembly and kindly donated and presented Year 5's with a dictionary.
The members of the cookery club were presented with an 'Amazing Chef' certificate.
We are very proud of Night Zookeeper Molly and Night Zookeeper Aran who have had their creations included in some episodes of the Night Zookeeper which is shown on SKY Kids. Buzz Burman, one of the founders and a former pupil of Tilney All Saints, came into school and did a workshop with the children. Buzz also explained how he got into graphical designing and some of the children found this very inspiring. Buzz enjoyed re-visiting our school as much as we enjoyed welcoming him back.
SPORTS DAY 2019
Well done to everyone who took part in our annual Sports Day events. Special congratulations to Blue House for being the overall winners.
A variety of races including sprint, relay and beanbag retrieve were organised for the children to partake in and lots of parents and friends
joined us for the occasion.
Rehearsal at 'The Minster' for 'Even You Song.'
Eleven children from Tilney All Saints and Anthony Curton took place in a contemporary composition of the 'Even You Song.' The performance took place at King's Lynn Minster where the children also sang with an adult choir of around twelve people.
Our Tilney Tennis Team: Molly, Ruby, Alfie and Jack attended the West Norfolk School Sports Partnership tennis finals event on 10th June. Mrs. Reed commented on how well the children represented the school and did themselves proud. Each player gave a great performance and it was a great experience for the children.
On 13th May on a very sunny afternoon, four children from Penguin Class took part in the Marshland Cluster tennis doubles competition. Six teams in all took part and it was a very fun and well organised event. We are very proud to say that we lifted the winner’s cup and we are all extremely proud of Ruby, Molly, Alfie and Jack for their incredible achievement. Well done to you.
Mr. Wilkinson brought his sheep and young lambs to school. He talked to all the schoolchildren about lambing, feeding and caring for the sheep.
The children really enjoying having the sheep visit school for the day.
We were very pleased to receive this letter from Ofsted confirming that our school is still judged to be "Good". We had a one day inspection, which we felt was very thorough, but fair, and confirmed our judgments that Tilney All Saints school is a good school!

We are very pleased with a letter we received from Tim Coulson, the regional schools' commissioner for the East of England and North East London. He wrote to us after we had a visit from the DfE, checking that we were still a "Good" school and that we had high standards. Some of the comments included:
"The teaching was purposeful and the pupils' attitudes to learning were strong. Books were well presented and showed good progress over time...Attendance in both schools is at or above national figures. Professional development has led to strong expertise in key areas."
"The pupils that were interviewed were very enthusiastic about the school and grateful for the high quality support they received."
"One girl was full of praise for the support the school had given to her disabled younger sibling. All had an unusually positive view of the schools. They appreciated taking part in mixed activities and really enjoyed their Friday afternoon joint sessions. Harmer admitted that a response to one of his questions had been unique and surprising. When asked what was best about the school, the first answer he received was "the homework". This turned out to be a reference to the creative activities the pupils are encouraged to undertake at home to extend their learning. His question about the ways the schools could be improved was the only one to stump them."
"These are two good schools that have developed through partnership and strong, committed leadership...the interest of working across both schools has made them an interesting place in which to work and develop."
The children thoroughly enjoyed the Candlemas service and a big thank you to Otter Class for their poems. All of the children behaved brilliantly.
