On the 9th of october our 10 Sports Ambassadors attended a course to become Bronze Sports Ambassadors and Healthy Activity Leaders. They had a great day learning how to lead and planning how they are going to inspire the rest of the school. They have already begun to use these skills and ones learnt at school to plan for Game On club that they will run from next half term!
Cross Country Running
On Tuesday 17th October eleven children from year six attended the second cross country running event of the year. Although the day had been fine it started to rain as the competitors started to arrive but fortunately the course did not become slippery and the children ran so fast they dodged most of the rain drops. The girls ran first and two of our children were in the leading group for much of the race before finishing a brilliant 4th and 5th. In the boys race many improved on their previous standings and our two front runners both achieved top 20 places.
Well done to everyone for a fantastic race.

A Team match v Praewood
On Friday the A team travelled to Praewood for their second league game. Unfortunately, due to a traffic accident we didn't arrive until very late which meant we really didn't have time for a proper warm up. Praewood were able to take advantage of this and quickly scored. As the game progressed we were more composed and with some great passing equalised and then scored another 2 in the first half. In the second half despite some good attacks from Praewood and several shots on goal we were able to extend our lead to finish winners at 6-1. The whole team played brilliantly. Well done boys.
