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.

On Monday 19th of February, YR 1, 2, 3 & 4 went orienteering at AVC. We did various activities including: crack the code and sums. Key stage 1 & 2 participated in different games because we are in separate classes. At the end, prizes were given to the people with the highest amount of points for Key stage 1 & 2. For the most points in Key stage 1 Woodborough Primary School with 58 points was Finley and Gilbert. For the most in Key stage 2 was Teddie, Thomas S and Emily Ackroyd. Overall we all really enjoyed it!

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.

On Wednesday the 18TH of October all the house captains (Phoebe, Riley, Morrigan, Carter Sam, Caitlin, Jake and Tamzin) went to Avon Valley Collage on a course to learn how to teach the change4life club.
When we arrived we had to do a game to warm us up. We were spilt up into groups and we had to work together to overturn the cards in a certain order. That was ace, 2,3,4 all the way up to ten then Jack, Queen and last the king. After that, we looked at the booklets we were given and answered a few questions about what skills a good leader needed. Then we played another game where we had to hit and say all the numbers up to thirty in order – which were on plates in a muddled up order – but if we did it wrong we would have to start again.
We then had lunch in the dinner hall. Then we were put into groups and given a game to create and lead. Every group tried each other’s game and we all found how hard it is to teach like the teachers!
We all had lots of fun and we are very nervous and excited about teaching our first club.

Yesterday year threes and fours went to a football festival at Avon Valley College. I was in Woodborough C and my team played three matches. Everybody tried their hardest but unfortunately we lost all of our matches. It was a really good experience and we are looking forward to going again next year when we are in year 4.
I was in Woodborough B and we played 4 matches. We played well as a team, winning 3 matches and only losing the other match 1-0. We only missed out on the semi- final because of goal difference.
I was in Woodborough A and we played 4 matches at the beginning. We won all 4 matches so we went through to the semi-final witch we won 1-0. This meant we were through to the final. It was 0-0 after full time so they added 2 minutes extra time for the golden goal. Unfortunately neither team scored so we had to do penalties. We all tried extremely hard but we lost the last penalty. We are very proud of our performance yesterday.
On Wednesday 11th October 2017 Caitlin, Tamzin, Callum, Minnie, Will and Ava went to Devizes leisure centre to play a netball match against Five Lanes. We all played well but lost 4-1. It was a hard game but we kept positive and got a goal and we cant wait for future matches!
