I must admit, looking at the predicted forecast for this week did make me panic a little. I have no idea how, but we managed to avoid the rain completely and play all of our planned fixtures without our arm bands and rubber rings! Games lessons also went ahead as planned and I didn’t ever need my waterproof trousers that I was religiously carrying to every outdoor activity.
On Wednesday the boys travelled to Taunton School. The U11 teams played some lovely hockey in a festival with St Peter’s, Taunton and Mount Kelly. Mr Haywood was particularly proud of the progress the boys have made over the term because the quality of their hockey was of a much higher standard than when they had previously played against Mount Kelly at the beginning of the term. He noticed a remarkable difference, well done boys! There were closely contested matches for U12 and U13, James MC was forever the hero in goal for the senior boys as well as Theo W scoring his first goal of the season.
The U11 girls travelled to St Peter’s for a quadrangular with Maynard, Exeter School and St Peter’s. Outstanding performances from Phoebe G and Jazmin KN meant the girls had a very successful afternoon. The U10 girls had a similar quadrangular hosted by Maynard, where Seren L showed her dominance in defence and Gen SJ and Jemima S showed their close partnership in attack.
In PE this week we continued our racket skills, focusing on footwork and racket control. The pupils have enjoyed little games such as ‘wobbly jelly’ and ‘tip tap tap’. Top enthusiasm as always and also in Reception and Year 1 lessons, what fun it was to have Hairy McClary, George from Peppa Pig and a Blue Crayon, to name a few, running around the gym on World Book Day.
Just a reminder that next week is Sport Relief week. All pupils in Year 2-8 will be participating in the school swimming galas and also in little challenges on Friday too.
On Friday 13th March we will be asking all pupils in Year 3-8 to wear a red accessory with their school uniform and bring in one pound for charity. There will be fun activities at break time and chances to win some sport relief prizes.
