On Tuesday 23rd of October 2018, Katelyn, Ollie, Kairan, Magnus, Zara, Ava and Millie attended a House Captain training day. Firstly, we played Rock Paper Scissors for a warm up, then we did a few games based on the House Captain rules. After that, we had a few card games. It was very hard because people were talking half way through our game rules, so most of us got irritated. It was a steep learning experience! Over all we had fun and can’t wait to run the Change 4 Life Club in school.
On the 15th of October Year 3s and Year 4s competed in a football festival. We were split into 3 different teams: blue team, red team and green team. Blue and red team were in pool 2. Surprisingly for both our third games, it was blue team against red team. Red team won, 7 – 1. All of the teams showed brilliant teamwork and everyone enjoyed themselves despite the wet weather!
On Wednesday the 10th of October, 6 x Yr5/6 pupils played a netball game against Five Lanes at Devizes Leisure Centre. The players were: Molly, Freya, Magnus, Skye, Ava and Dougal. Freya was team captain and some of the parents came along to watch, we lost 2-14 to them. Although we didn’t win, we all enjoyed it and have learnt a lot more about netball and marking.
On the 2nd of October we went to a sporting festival. There were 6 year 6 and 6 year 2. Which were: Magnus, Charlie, Ollie, Katelyn, Ava and Zara. The year 2s were: Jake, Harriet, Oliver, Gilbert, Autumn and Lauren. The tasks included: speed jump, medicine ball toss, high jump, javelin, balance beam and long jump. We all had a good time.

On Friday the 28th September 2018, 18 pupils went to Chirton School for a football tournament. Only 1 person scored a goal (Finley) and Sam scored two own goals. Although we only one won match against the other Woodborough team and drew one match, we all had fun. We would like to say a huge thank you to the Mums for helping us and being our managers throughout the matches Thank you Mrs Morris and Mrs Wyatt.
On Friday 8th of June 18 children went to a tennis festival at Avon Valley College. There were 5 schools there, we were split in to three teams A team, B team and C team. There were two pools and A and B teams were in pool 1 and C team were in pool 2. A team and C team got into the semi-finals but B team still did incredibly well. A team and C team were against each other in the semi-finals Harry Phillips was on the A team and Ned Allen was on the C team whoever won that match their team would go to the finals. Ned hit the ball and it rolled over the net but unfortunately Harry lost the point so the C team got into the finals. The C team were against Rushall but it was who gets the most points, Rushall got one more point than C team so they won. We did extremely well and we would love to do it again – it was incredibly close!
