Gymnastics Festival 9th February 2017

On the 9th of February a group of 12 children attended a gymnastics festival. Some of us were very excited and some were scared as we didn’t know what to expect. As well as doing the competition we had other activities to try whilst we waited to be judged. This included: ribbons, pompoms, tumble track and many more. There were two teams, Woodborough A and B. Both teams did exceptionally well with Woodborough B winning the whole festival and Ava being awarded a medal for top girl. It was a fun-filled afternoon and we hope to return again next year to hold onto our winning title. Thank you to Mrs Crichard and all the parents who helped with transport on the day.
