Hockey Festival - 1st Place!!!
Some of our Year 2 children represented the school at a recent Hockey Festival. The children played several games, competing against 3 other schools. They worked well as a team, defending their goal whilst also scoring and earning points for their team. The morning was a great success and the children certainly showed their confidence to compete.
Clifton Park Fun Run
On the 17th October why not bring the kids down to Clifton Park to join in a 2K fun run - organised by Beat the Street and parkrun regulars Jolly Foghorns running club.
Anyone aged 4-14 can take part, and parents/carers can take part as well if they wish.
It’s free to enter and there will be prizes, including a prize for the best fancy dress (which is optional). Run starts at 9am near the museum, registration from 8.15am
Please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode.
Some of our Year 2 children represented the school at a recent indoor athletics tournament.
The children competed in several events including hurdles, seated chest push and a standing long jump. Their scores were then compared with teams of children from various different schools. We are pleased to announce that overall we came 2nd place!!
We have now come to the halfway point in our Game and its fabulous how many people and families are out walking especially at the weekend-collecting points for Beat the Street but most importantly out as a family getting plenty of fresh air, getting fitter and having fun along the way.
We are currently 14th on the leader board with a total of 51,580 points. 278 players are involved from our school but if you haven't already registered there is still time. Once you have registered you can get involved and start collecting points for our school.
Keep up the great work!!

The children have all settled back in this week and have really enjoyed participating in speed, agility and quickness activities.
The result of lock down has seen a decrease in physical activity for most children so promoting healthy and active lifestyles not just at school but at home is really important.
Here are a few useful links that will encourage the children to be physically active at home whilst having fun.
