Year 2 Cross-Country
Each class in Year 2 acted as part of a team to run together round the Junior school grounds. This was a challenge for the fastest runners who had to pace themselves to remain part of the group round the whole course but each class kept together with the children supporting each other. Congratulations to Class 7 who easily managed to run a fast time and became the winners.
Whole School Bounce
Every child from Nursery to Year 2 accepted the challenge of bouncing as quickly as they could on the bouncy castle as part of our Fitness Day. The child who scored the most bounces from each class was declared a winner. Adults also joined in and Mrs Minter retained her position as champion but Miss Reeves came equal first this year.
Year 2 Kurling
Each class in Year 2 entered 2 teams of four children to play a against each other in a knockout competition. It was very exciting as the Kurling stones were knocked around and the children had to use all their powers of skill and concentration to aim accurately. The final scores were very close. Congratulations to Class 7 who just won overall by one point ahead of the tie for second place between Class 8 and Class 9.
Year 2 Dodgeball
Each class in Year 2 entered a team of six children to play against each other in a scored competition. The games were all very exciting as the balls flew across the hall and children jumped out of the way! The children had to use all their powers of skill and concentration to aim accurately but to also be aware of balls flying towards them. The final scores were very close. Congratulations to Class 9 who just won overall by one point ahead of Class 8. Alfie and Spencer were awarded fabulous Dodgeballer certificates in recognition of their outstanding performances – well done boys.
Pancake Race 2018
The annual traditional Staff Pancake Race was once again a hotly contested event! This year there was the additional challenge of obstacles to negotiate – not for the feint hearted. A team from each year group lined up to do battle with a frying pan and a pancake in front of the whole school. This year our lovely new vicar Carol was the referee and judge – a role she has never had to preside over and one that she is unlikely to forget. Year 1 were quickly knocked out by the highly competitive Foundation Stage in the first round. This left the Year 2 challengers raring to go. After a dodgy start with Miss Palmer’s pancake taking an odd toss to the floor, Year 2 were hot on the heels of Year R colleagues. A great cheer went up as the Year R team just beat Year 2 to the finishing line in a very close run race. As you can see from the pictures, Foundation Stage were the winners once again – congratulations!
Year 1 Kurling Term3
Every class in Year 1 held their own mini competitions before entering their most successful team for the Overall Year 1 Championship. Coincidentally the teams were all called Red Team! After nail biting games, the overall winner was Red Team from Class 5. Congratulations to the children on using their skills, holding their nerve and focusing on the target to score the most points.
Year 2 Rounders Competition Term 5
For the first time in a while we held a rounders competition which was great fun. The sun shone and the pitch was perfect! Each class played matches at the end of a series of lessons which had taught the children the basic rules and skills. Certain children stood out for their skills, sportsmanship and enthusiasm. Well done to the winners in each class!
Year 2 Sports Day Term 6
The day was bright, hot and sunny for this year’s fun sports and the children were raring to go. As always our warm up was led by the children in a WUSU style routine which got the parents clapping.
After that we all joined together on the roundabout of activities including bike races, javelin, egg and spoon and volleyball. Thank you very much to the parents who joined in so enthusiastically!
Our class competition for hockey was won by Class 8 (great matches with close scores), the basketball by Class 7 (a clear margin) and the Kurling by Class 9 (fantastic scores! Well done to all the teams in those events and thanks to the supporting parents too.
Whole School Dance Competition July 2017
This much anticipated competition was once again an outstanding experience for all concerned. Each class chose a piece of music to base their dance on and performed in front of our judging panel; Mrs French, Miss Williams, Mr Havell and Annabelle.
Our Nursery children began the morning with a fabulous routine which had the whole audience smiling as they became seeds opening into flowers with bees buzzing around. The adults did a great job of ensuring the children were well practised. Foundation Stage showcased three wonderful dances with the childrens performance even more complex than ever. These young children could all remember where they had to be and what they had to do at each stage of their dances. Year 1 continued the excellent performances, having learned some complicated routines which they performed faultlessly and with high energy. Year 2 finished the competition and demonstrated the progression in skills from YR to Y2. Feedback from the judges included words such as Amazing! And Fantastic! As well as ‘great routines’ ‘complicated’ ‘clever choreography’ ‘happy faces’. The judges took a long time to decide the winner from each year group but the end result was Classes 1, 6 and 8/9 being declared overall champions for this year.
Our finale saw these classes perform once more. A magnificent morning which would not have been possible without our incredibly talented, creative teaching staff, the energy and commitment of our children and the dedication of our judges.
