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.
Please can Year 6 be collected from the Year 3 classroom tomorrow at 3pm due to Mrs Budgett teaching both classes and needing to see them out.
On Monday the school watched the play Zoom which is based on the story The Hare and the Tortoise.
It is about a company called Hare and co. It is run by Mr Harvey Hare and there is a Tortoise called Toby that works there too.They get into an argument about who was the fastest and then they settled it on a race.
The play was performed amazingly well,by the year 3 and 4 children.We were impressed by their acting and singing. There are lovely solo songs sung by Megan and Isabelle,as well as enthusiastic singing by everyone involved.
The props used have been individually made to help the audience get a clear picture of what is happening. Some of the songs will blow your minds.
Hope you enjoy it.
