0n Monday 30th April 6 children went to West Wilts gymnastics final. They invited 10 teams of 6. Firstly, we did the vault with a spring board underneath it. We had two goes and we did really well on it. After that we did a floor routine and had to practice before we performed to the judges. Then we did lots of other gym activities such as the tram pet.
Also, we were allowed to do whatever we liked down a long red mat. Finally it was presentation time! In the vault Minnie won a silver medal and Tabitha got a silver for the floor routine and a silver for coming 2nd best out of 60 gymnasts. The children who went were Amelie, Tabitha, Minnie, Hana, Teddie and Dougal.
We really enjoyed it although we didn’t come in the top six.

On the last Wednesday of term 5 pupils went to compete against Seend A. They were Caitlin, Adam, Callum, Tamzin and Minnie. The final result was 7-6 to them but it was an extremely close match and we all worked really hard. Unfortunately, that was our last Netball match in the league and we all have to thank Mrs Wren for organising it for us.

Both teams showed excellent teamwork and skills. Woodborough A got into the finals but lost out on penalties. Overall our best score was 3-0. We learnt a lot about playing matches and hockey skills.
We are all very proud of ourselves and we all really enjoyed it.

On Tuesday 6th February 20 children from Years 1-5 went to the Wyvern Theatre to take part in a dance festival. Each school performed a dance for the Once Upon a Time theme. We learnt a dance to Pinocchio’s ‘I’ve Got No Strings’. It was quite a fast paced and tricky dance but we all tried very hard to learn the moves. We had lots of fun and want to do it again next year. We would like to thank Collette Harris at Avon Valley College for choreographing the dance and providing our costumes.

Cherry and Elm class have been taking part in Squash lessons on Monday afternoons. They are halfway through a 6 week programme run by Squash 4 Schools and led by coach – Dax. So far the two classes have learnt about the three core skills needed to play squash: agility, balance and coordination. They have started to use squash walls and are looking forward to learning how to play small games over the next few weeks. There will be an invitation sent home to all of the children in Cherry and Elm to take part in a Squash Workshop at Marlborough College – keep an eye out for it.
