I am really pleased to say that all the Year 6 cyclists passed their Norfolk County Council On Road Level 2 Cycling Course this morning. Nigel Aubrey from the Road Safety Team came to assess the children. They had to show they can safe look, turn left and right and pass a stationary vehicle. Nigel was really impressed with them and their manoeuvres. A massive thank you to Mrs Cooke who trained the children to this high level and to Mrs Bircham, Freya and Hannah, as well as Mrs Morant for helping on Wednesday.
During their training the children did encounter problems along their routes, speeding vehicles through the 20mph section, delivery vehicles, cars parked inconveniently and impatient drivers trying to overtake whilst it was dangerous to do so, big tractors with trailers, the list could go on. It is a real eye opener being on the road outside our school, it is busier than you might think, so please be careful when approaching the school. It is only 20mph!
It has been lovely having Hannah with us for two weeks. She has been on work experience from Fakenham Academy and is a former pupil of All Saints. Hannah is taking GCSE PE and offered to run a game of Uni-hoc with the remaining Year 6. They really enjoyed their early morning run about before the heat of the day is upon us.
Watching Year’s 3 & 4 perform Zoom! was wonderful, we had all heard little snippets of lovely singing at meetings. The children had been practising for weeks and finally on a warm July day their time to perform to parents had arrived.
The show told the story of the hare and the tortoise and the children were split between the two sides – team hare and team tortoise.
All the children were confident in their lines and knew when it was their time to get up on the stage including the very important stage hands. The singing was incredible with some outstanding performances and the acting spoke of the ease that the children felt with the play. Standing on the stage at 7, 8 or 9 and either singing or acting your lines can feel very daunting yet the children all took it in their stride.
There were many hare puns and other funny moments that parents will cherish for a long time. The children clearly enjoyed being a part of the performance and all of the parents, grandparents, other family members and friends really enjoyed watching it.
Well done All and a huge thank you as ever goes to the wonderful Stibbard staff who put so much into organising these events.
