The Y6 children and teachers fully enjoyed taking part in the obstacle race we set up for Sports Relief. As you can see we all got a little competitive 🙂 Thank you for making the effort to come in your coloured sports day teams. We will use the points from today to contribute to the final scores on sports day.
One of our sports relief challenges last week was a netball match between the teachers and some of the year 6 children. Height was definitely an advantage for the teachers who were very pleased (and very relieved) with their 12-3 win. A big congratulations to the children who played for giving 100% effort and not giving up.
Up next on the PE scheme of work for KS2 was dance. Although Mr Hancock and Callum have practised their side step clap routine for a few years, it was time for the school to learn a variety of topics in dance. Mr Hancock and Callum looked nervous about creating new routines. Fortunately for the PE, staff Georgia from CV
Our netball superstars played their first match against Potters Green at the end of the Autumn Term. We won both games; a great start to the year.

Children from Year 5 went to the Alan Higgs centre to take part in a Dodgeball competition. Their honesty, which is one of the main values that runs through the Sainsburys Games competitions, was paramount as referees were not allowed. The children played really well and we were impressed with how they behaved throughout the tournament.
The children visited the Richo Arena for the Wasps Netball Community Day. They were lucky enough to get to meet Jade Clarke who plays for England Netball team and helped the Roses win the Gold Medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. It was a great morning and the children thoroughly enjoyed the various activities on offer.
We have been making the most of the weather and using the field for our daily mile break during the afternoon. Four laps is equal to a mile and some of our children have been pushing themselves to achieve this and more.
This weekend Mr Taylor, Mr Hancock, Mr Stevens and Mrs Haywood (our school governor) ran the Cardiff Half marathon. Running practise at school has definitely helped with their preparation. We are sure the children will be inspired by their teachers’ determination and resilience.
