Multi Skills Festival

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.

Orienteering Festival

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.

Girls’ Cricket Festival

We had to play four separate games and in the total we drew one, won one and lost two. We found it challenging at some points of the game, however, we kept on going and tried to do our best! We would like to thank a few people for taking the year 5 girls to the festival: Mrs Barker, Mr Tomlinson and Mr Little. In conclusion, all the year 5 girls had a fantastic time at the festival!

Tri Golf

On the third of April 2019, the whole of Elm Class and 5 people from Lime Class went to Marlborough Golf Course for a Tri-golf festival. There were lots of different activities including Grand National, Bullseye, finders Keepers, Tunnel and Dominoes. The Grand National was a really good one because you had to chip it over the cones without hitting it out of bounds. There were 17 different teams from 4 different schools. Woodborough Yellow team came 2nd; Woodborough Blue came 10th and Woodborough Red team came 16th. We all had a great time and want to do it again next year when we are in Year 5.

Rugby Festival

On Wednesday the 20th March two teams went to Avon Valley College to compete in a tag rugby festival. We won two of our matches, drew one and lost two. We came fifth overall and we were really happy with how we played. We all really enjoyed the day and hope that the year fives can go back there again next year.

Gymnastics Festival

On the 5th of March 2019, 5 year fours, 2 year fives and 6 year sixes went to the gymnastics festival. We were split into 2 routines; the easy routine and the hard routine. There were lots of moves in the routines, both were hard to remember but in the end both teams did extremely well.
