World Book Day 

Thank you to all the parents for the amazing effort to help the children create their Word Costumes and Book Jars. They were stunning!
The day began with our Reading Champions visiting each class to deliver their book vouchers and a wrapped up book.
Flotsam is a wordless picture book and all the classes in the school worked on producing a response to it in a variety of ways.
The Reading champions were joined by Mrs Carolyn Corbett, our English Governor, and they were given the very tricky task of judging which was their favourite Word Dress-Up and book jar for each class.

 Table Tennis Festival
On Monday 12th March we took a mixed team of 11 to a Table Tennis festival at Smallbrook Table Tennis Stadium.
We had 3 hours of Table Tennis coached by 3 very experienced Table Tennis coaches.
The coaches worked mainly on technique using a forearm and backhand stroke, body position and how to hit the ball.
There was even a Table Tennis robot which fired 20 balls at you to return over the net, with 1 of our team returning 19 shots!!
A great afternoon of Table Tennis and as always great behaviour from all who went representing Niton Primary School.
Well done to….Sonnie, Amelia, Emily, Noah, James, Luca, Amelie, Sophie, Alfie, Ziva and Joel.
