KS2 Footy Challenge

The children in KS2 completed a series of football skills challenges this May as part of a Sports Partnership initiative called ‘Project Re-imagine’

Take a look at the following slides to get an idea of the challenge.

Aman, one of our specialist coaches, came in and delivered the session. Each pupil took part in the 6 challenges. They partnered up and counted each other’s scores and recorded on their sheet. There were prizes for the best overall performance in each class and for a child who displayed a great attitude/effort. Everyone seemed to have a great time! Well done KS2!

Have a look at the photos from each class.

Year 4 Tennis Festival

8 lucky year 4 children had the chance to take part in a competitive tennis tournament on Friday 14th May. It was great to get back to interschool competitions. The children did really well and they had a lot of fun. Unfortunately we placed last out of the 5 schools who attended, but it’s not the winning it’s the taking part that counts I always say!!
