Sports Hall Athletics Competition

The athletics team came a creditable 6th place in a highly-competitive competition at Shenley Academy this week.  All athletes performed fantastically well, with stand out performances by Ellie Lloyd and Laya Hackley (1 + 1 lap relay), and Ellie (again!), Elisha Green and Mia Groce (Speed Bounce) who won their respective events.  Well done everyone and thanks to Mrs Lloyd and Harriett for supporting us.

Tremendous Tennis in Year 4

Coinciding with the Australian Open, Year 4 have been enjoying tennis coaching from Mr Lancaster from Lordswood Tennis Club this half term.  He has been working on movement and ‘ball sense’, forehand and backhand strokes – the children have loved his challenges!  The children can now access free tennis sessions at Mr Lancaster’s club.  The children are also looking forward to the inter-class competition.

 

Balanceability in Nursery!

Our Nursery children had a real treat this week when they had a go at ‘Balanceability’ bike riding in PE.  ‘Balanceability’ uses balance bikes to establish fundamental balance skills that are required for cycling without stabilisers.  The children loved their experience and really impressed the instructor with their skills, confidence and the thoughtful questions that they asked!

Year 5 & 6 Football

Our boys’ football team (including Ruby Hill) showed great character and resilience to come back from 2-0 down and then 3-1 down to beat Highfields Primary 4-3 in a friendly match on Thursday evening.  As they got to grips with the game and their opponents, the boys started to compete and the pass the ball better, creating a number of goalscoring chances.  Well done all particularly Kemanie in his first match!
