Recent Events

June 2019 - Ultimate Frisbee enrichment day

Mr Newton taught us how to play "Ultimate Frisbee". He taught us different types of throw, and how best to catch a frisbee. He then taught us the game. Teams have to try to score a "goal" by throwing the frisbee over their line and making sure one of their players catches it. The other team must defend, and try to score the opposite end of the pitch. Good fun - lots of skills, and tactics too.

The year 3s and 4s played first, then the year 5s and 6s followed. Here we are in action:

 

May 2019 - Danish Long Ball competition

"What is Danish Long Ball?" I hear you ask. Well, it is a hitting and fielding game where you hit the ball and run to the other end of the field and back again. The fielders have then to throw the ball at you as you try to make it back. (Luckily it's pretty safe! No injuries today.)

We played against other schools, and there were 2 teams: a year 2/3 team and a year 4/5 team. The younger ones came 6th; the older ones 4th. Well done everyone!

 

April/May 2019 - cricket coaching

This term we have been lucky enough to have a qualified cricket coach - Miss Hill - who has been teaching us all the skills involved in the game during PE lessons. Both the junior classes have been getting the coaching.

Here are some of the year 3s and 4s getting some batting practice:

 

1st April 2019 - Hand Hockey interhouse competition in school.

 

Miss Hill, our cricket coach, organised a "hand hockey" competition for the juniors between our 3 houses (Huntingford, Matthews and Palmer). Hand hockey is similar to netball but using a smaller ball and aiming at stumps rather than a net. Good fun:

 

27th March 2019 - Kho Kho tournament

 

20 children from Year 3, Year 4 Year 5 and Year  6 competed in a "Kho Kho" tournament. Kho Kho is a tagging game in teams, that originated in India. Tiring, but fun!

 

The Y5/6 team came 5th - well done! - and the Y3/4 team came 3rd, securing bronze medals. Great stuff, everyone!

 

 

 

24th March 2019 - Key Steps Gymnastics competition

Loads of our pupils from all year groups took part in the Key Steps Gymnastics competition at Long Sutton. Lots of certificates, plenty of smiles and a few medals too.Well done all those who took part - we were proud of all of you!

Here are a few pictures:
