Year 6 Bronze Ambassadors ran a fantastic afternoon of ‘Modified Triathlon’ for year 4 yesterday, taking full advantage of the lovely spring weather.
Both year 4 classes took part in 3 events which included balancing, turning cones and a full lap of the school grounds to finish off. The Bronze Ambassadors timed each house team as one, giving some close timings for Mrs Fahey to compare! Next week we will run the same for years 5 and 6, so watch this space for news on the overall house winners…
10HP went to each of the Bronze Ambassadors who organised and ran an excellent event which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Well done to everyone involved!
Tag Rugby Training
Otters and Falcons played against each other this morning in an exciting tag rugby competition. This competition followed School Games competition format, and we ended up playing some basic tag games then full tag games. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to play against each other in a sport that they have been working towards.

Year 3 Athletics
Year 3 took part in an athletics competition last Friday, hosted by the year 6 bronze ambassadors. The children were split into 4 groups, in mixed house teams, and they rotated through four different events: sprint, long distance run, standing long jump and javelin throw.
This was the first time that the bronze ambassadors have been left to completely run the event without adult guidance, and they did brilliantly and were very well organised. Year 3 pupils took part with enthusiasm and behaved beautifully, showing a huge amount of effort to take part sensibly and supportively. It was an excellent afternoon had by all!
Every competitor won a number of house points depending on their performance over the four activities. See how your house did below:
