On the Tuesday the 11th of June 2019, 3 year 3s and 9 year 4s went to Avon Valley College to play tennis. There were three teams from each school: Red Team, Yellow Team and Blue Team. The teams were made up of 4 people – 2 boys and 2 girls – in the red team there was Thomas, Ned, Sophie and Ellen in the blue team there was Jamie, Edward, Mollie and Tabitha in the yellow team there was Anabelle, Poppy, George and Ranulf. When the results came, we found out that yellow and blue team came first and got medals! Red team came 4th and played really well. We had lots of fun and hope to do it again next year.

Recently year 3 went to a multi-sport festival at Avon Valley College. We played wheel chair basketball, la cross, dodge ball, archery, rounder, vortex and had an obstacle race. We all really enjoyed it. Our favourite game was wheel chair basketball because we got to go around in wheel chairs and score our own. We met lots of different children from other schools. We loved doing the multi sports festival and hope we can do it again.

Some Yr 3’s, Yr 5’s and Elm Class all took part in an orienteering festival on Tuesday. There were two courses, C and D. They both included having to locate numbered posts. We had to follow a map to find them. We had a gadget to scan the posts which gave us a time. The aim was to do it in the quickest time possible.
We had a practice first and then we did it for real. We all had fun comparing times. All of us were out of breath at the end but enjoyed it.
