Hockwold also took first centre pass in this game but we soon grabbed the ball and took it up their end. It was soon 1-0 to us, but they got a goal back and at half time it was 1-1. In the second half we scored one more goal to make it 2-1 to us but they soon got a goal back and it was 2-2. The match ended with the score being 2-2. Overall Northwold Primary School came second.
We would like to thank Mrs Bimpson, Mrs Hood and Mrs Johnson for helping us through the season…
On May, 2nd we had our Mayday celebration at Northwold School with maypole dances, Morris Dancing and songs.
May Day is a very old celebration to welcome the return of the flowers after winter and to think about new life. It has been going for hundreds of years.
It was lovely sunny day and many adults came to watch us perform. We had a traditional May Queen with a King, Princes and Princesses, a Jester and Royal Guards. All the children in the school took part. Everyone paraded around the playground. They all had a posy to be presented to the King and Queen.
Rosie was the Queen and Connor was the King. Sophie, Sapphire, Kay and I were Princesses. There were two Princes, Jasper and Thomas, and we had Nick and Ashley as the Royal Guards. Troy was a really good Jester. He had his face painted as a clown and wore clown clothes. He had a feather duster which he waved at people and he told jokes to them.
The Queen wore a long lilac dress and the Princesses wore lilacs and purples. Everyone else wore nice clothes.
Class one performed two songs, one was with mice and the other one was a caterpillar. Everyone clapped and smiled.
Class Two did some Morris dances with handkerchiefs. Morris Dancing is a very ancient and traditional part of May celebrations.
Year Four sang different songs which were about May the first. All of them had musical instruments to play.
The main event was performed by years five and six, that was the dancing around the maypole. They performed several dances where the ribbons were woven into different patterns. I did double plait, spider's web and gipsy's tent.
I thought that everyone did well and I enjoyed dancing around the maypole. I liked seeing the other children dancing and I really liked the mice.
The parents smiled a lot and seemed to enjoy the afternoon.
At the end a photographer came and took lots of photos which will be in the Lynn News.
When the dancing was over most of the adults came into the school for a cup of tea and biscuits.
This was a really lovely day and I look
