Although cut short, the Spring term has been a remarkable one for our school.
In the first event, the U11 basketball squad competed superbly to win the local qualifier and earn a place in the county finals. The boys and girls competed in a half each and were comfortable despite going behind early on in the opening rounds. The children have played regularly during lunchtimes and in PE lessons and their skill sets were unbelievable.
This was followed by the swimming gala. Zach, Matthew, Caleb, William, Grace, Maja, Sylvie and Layla swum a range of strokes in an excellent event. Only two points separated all four teams going into the final two races.
Most recent was the U11 tag rugby. We brought only 8 players, meaning that each player played every minute of every game. And they were all amazing! Each game was phenomenally competitive: of the 12 fixtures, 6 of them were won or lost by one point. We lost only one of our 6 games. Each player was magnificent in defence and every player contributed in try scoring. The children were fast, decisive and played with real pride. It was one of the most impressive performances I have seen from primary school children.
Unfortunately current events have curtailed the fixture list meaning that the U9 girls' football and U11 hockey events have been cancelled. We look forward to picking up where we left off once things are back to normal.
The Autumn term saw an excellent start to the year. The new playground lines enabled us to develop the range of PE we were teaching the children and we acquired lots of new equipment to enhance the curriculum including handballs, lacrosse sticks, new basketball hoops for the playground and many more.
The school participated in a range of different, photographs of which will follow.
