A team of children joined us from Cockshutt for a game of basketball this week. They had a great afternoon playing 4v4 matches with the children swapping in and out throughout the games. We had very well matched teams with a final result of 11-11.
Our elected Sports Leaders received their badges in front of the whole school, their main job is the represent all the children in our school by being their voice. If children have ideas to improve playtime, would like some new equipment and to help organise and run events these are the children to talk to.
We have competed in the Schools 2021 Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon with 31 of our cross country runners managing to run 18.5 laps of the track to complete the 2.6 mile distance. The children ran it over the course of a few weeks during their cross country lunchtime sessions, we were amongst 500,000 children across the U.K. who were a part of this amazing event. The children were presented with their certificates and badges in recognition of their achievements.
Two teams went to AMF Bowling in Shrewsbury where they competed against other teams from North Shropshire. The event was organised by the Panathlon charity whose aim is to give children as many sporting experiences as possible. We were able to send a team of KS1 and KS2 children who had an amazing morning and were awarded medals and certificates which will be presented to them on Friday in Celebration Assembly.
A team of 6 children competed at the Inter-School Hockey tournament at the Marches School, they played 2 matches resulting in them qualifying for the Trophy final, they then played 2 more which resulted in them being placed 4th overall. They played 10 minute matches with 4 on the pitch at a time and had a large area to cover with us being able to roll on and off substitutes to keep up the very fast pace of each match.

Opening Schools Facilities Fund
We have been very fortunate to have received funding to help us to buy equipment to facilitate coaching, equipment and afterschool clubs which has already been put to good use!
The landing mat has been purchased for our after school Gymnastic Club and the photos show the children using it for the first time. This week they used it for some cardio and conditioning and to work on some skills, they had soooo much fun!
