This week both the Year 3 and 4 Athletics Club and 5 and 6 all attended on Monday, due to
World Market Day being held on Thursday. This week we focused on track events and tried to beat the times which had previously been recorded.
This week after progressing with the basic skills, the children set up small matches and learnt the rules of a competitive match. The children have improved so much and have really enjoyed learning a new sport.
Rapid Fire Festival
On the 12th February 2019, we took 2 teams of 6 children, to take part in this Cricket style festival. Both teams were amazing, with one team making it to the semi final.
It was really fun because we had to run a lot. It made it even more fun because we played against other schools. I would like to go again.
The Rapid Fire Festival was a lot of fun because it was really competitive. I felt nervous when we were in the mini bus, but when I went in to the school hall I felt better. Even though we got knocked out in the semi-final, it was one of the best competitions ever.
The Rapid Fire Festival was really exciting because we played cricket and I’ve never played cricket before.
The rapid fire festival was really fun because I’ve never represented the school before. I felt very excited and proud.
When we walked in I felt nervous, but I felt better when we started playing. I tried my best to hit the ball hard through the cones to get extra points. I tried so hard that I was tired when I went home. It was my first time on a mini bus. I hope I get to go again.
I felt a little nervous because it looked complicated but I watched the demonstration and I knew how to play it. I tried my best to get the ball through the cones.
Water Sports Festival
On the 5th February 2019, 8 selected children attended the 'Water Sports Festival' at Haileybury, Turnford run by the A10 school partnership.
I loved the water sport because it was AMAZING! For me, my best part for me was when we were dancing.
I loved it, but at first it was very scary because so many teenagers were staring at me and my friends. Apart from that I liked it and I loved when we did sitting volleyball.
At the water sports festival we took part in lots of activities. A partner assault course like a canoe slalom, sitting volleyball, synchronised swimming, a rowing exercise that was fun and then we did another hoop exercise. They were all really fun. Out of 6 teams we came 3rd with a bronze medal. I felt really proud and exited that we came in the top 3 .
