Tydd St Mary pupils have fun before enforced break
Pupils at Tydd St Mary Primary School squeezed in loads of fun activities before the enforced break brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
Firstly, the school hall was transformed into a rainforest as part of the current Year 6 topic, complete with a live snake, the sounds of the forest and ‘mood lighting’.
The school also held a Funky Socks Day to raise awareness of Down Syndrome, as the sister of a pupil has the condition.
There was also basketball success with ten members of Tydd Titans attending the county trials, with every single one making the squad for a tournament, which was sadly cancelled.
‘Layla Hunt’ and ‘Shirley Day’ were ‘baptised’ at a ceremony at St Mary’s Church, attended by all children in Toucans and Robins Class as part of their religious studies. Proud ‘parents’ and ‘godparents’ then invited everyone to join them in celebrating the event with cake and drinks back at school.
Finally, the pupils had some sweet treats, with the Tydd St Mary Stores handing them their stock of popcorn that would have gone to the Light Cinema, which was forced to temporarily close because of coronavirus. Parents also donated early Easter treats to the kids.
