On Tuesday we took 60 children from year 3,4 and 5 to Westminster Lodge to take part in a Mini-Triathlon. The children had to swim about 50 metres, followed by an 800 metre bike ride and finally a 400 metre run. It was amazing to see so many children from the school take part in such an enjoyable activity. They all had a lot of fun and can be very proud of their achievements.
Thank you to the parents who helped with lifts and supported the children. I just wish I could have joined in!

To continue to celebrate National Sports Week EDSV football academy visited the school and led each class in a short football taster session. It was great fun for all the children who were able to take part in a number of activites.
Over the last 2 Mondays the children have taken part in the School Games Day. On the first Monday it was the track events including; traditional running races and space hopper relay, dressing up relay and obstacle course. Then on the second Monday all the children took part in a carousel of mini sporting activities in their house groups to win as many points as they could. The scores from all the activities were added together and Emerald House were declared winners.
Well done to all the children. Thank you to the parents who helped and those who came to support.

Last Tuesday and Wednesday a number of children from all year groups took part in the annual District Sports at Westminster Lodge. On Tuesday it was the field events including; high jump, long jump and throw and also the 4 x 100 metre relay for our year 6 team. Every one tried their best and we had some good results to give us a healthy score going in to Thursday's track events. On Thursday there were teams from every year group competing and again we had some fantastic effort from the children. At the end of the afternoon we were all very excited waiting to find out where we had come. It was a lovely surprise to find that we finished joint 1st for the girls' team and 2nd overall when the boys' and girls' scored were added together.
Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to the parents who came and supported.

Last week our cricket team played a match against Killigrew. It was very close with some excellent batting, bowling and fielding skills in evidence. With just 7 runs in it Killigrew won and went forward to the county finals.
As part of National Sports Week the children had an amazing Circus Skills session. They learnt how to balance a peacock feather on one finger, their upper lip and shoulder. They were also taught how to juggle and then had an opportunity to try out mini bikes and unicycles. We all had lots of fun and at the end of the session a sense of achievement having mastered some of the skills.
