Our year 3/4 boys’ team had a big competition at the beginning of March, playing in a football league with some of Stockton’s strongest football teams. During our first few matches, our nerves got the better of us and we drew both matches. As the competition continued, our flare and skills came out and we went on to have fantastic wins with some magical football being played.
This half term many children throughout the school have taken part in gymnastics competitions, competing against many schools in area. The children are taught a set routine, working on forward rolls and teddy bear rolls as well as apparatus work for the older children. In all key stages the children have performed well with many individual medals being won!
A group of year 5 and 6 children took part in the biggest swimming competition of the year! The 5 competitors had shown great talent in the local heats and progressed as a team onto the finals, which take place at Billingham Forum. Here the children had to race against the best swimmers in Stockton. We had individual races in front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke and even butterfly, which is a very difficult stroke to master. Finally, we swam as a team in the medley and freestyle relays. We left the competition with one silver medal and some amazing memories. What a fantastic achievement!
