Pupils from three Fenland school see their work featured on TV




Three children from the partnership schools of Anthony Curton Primary, Walpole St Peter, and Tilney All Saints Primary, recently had their creations appear on Sky Kids TV.

Night Zookeeper is an online writing tool jointly founded by a former Tilney All saints pupil, Simon ‘Buzz’ Burman.

It begins with children encouraged to draw their own magical characters that go with them through the Night Zoo.

Children then encounter sentence building games, short writing challenges and many more exciting activities that help them to use these new words in longer, more complex sentences.

Year 4 pupil from Anthony Curton, Maya Cazot, invented the Lava Monster, with a little help from Beth Pettifar.

George Bowen’s Banana Vending Machine was shortlisted but didn’t quite make it onto TV.
