Year 6 orienteering festival

On Wednesday 28th June ten Yr6s- Jed, Paige, Ruby, Arthur, Jessica, Rjay, Georgina, Jude, Josephine and Daniel- went to Stonehenge School for an orienteering festival. We had two runs- one a practice run and one the actual run when we were timed. We had a map and a piece of plastic to slot into these scanners when we got to the right number however some of the numbers were quite hard to find. Afterwards, we found out that we came 4th overall. We all had a great day and we were all pleased with our times we did it in.

Boys Cricket Festival

On Wednesday 24th May, 10 Year 6’s and 6 Year 5’s went to Collingbourne and took part in a cricket festival. Even though it was stifling hot, we still played to the highest standard. Woodborough B consisted of Jarrad, Jude, Jed, Jake Hickman, Carter, Callum, John and Adam. Wodborough A was made up of Cameron, Fred, Tom, Jonny, Jake Tilbury, Ronan, Riley and Will. Woodborough B won three matches and lost three. Woodborough A won five of their matches and lost one. Woodborough A’s final match against Ramsbury A was very close. We only just lost and we were very disappoint that we didn’t get into the county final. Thank you to all the parents who took all of the children to the event.

Tag Rugby County Finals

1 team of 4 girls and 6 boys went from year 5/6 to Devizes rugby club for the tag finals. We got put into a group with five others. Sadly we didn’t make it out of our group losing 4 and winning 1 but at least we didn’t come last in it. We then went into another group with the other teams that came 4th in their group. We won the first game 8-6, drew the next game 6-6 and we lost in the third one. We all had a great day out and hope our team have get to the finals next year as well.

Year 5 Tri Golf

On Wednesday 26th April Morrigan Adam, Oscar, Carter, Sam, Riley, Nathaniel, Jake, Woody and Ashley went to High Post golf club for a tri-golf tournament. There were 10 schools that took part from across Wiltshire. We had to go round 8 stations with different activities. There were 2 rests in between. All of these stations used our golfing skills. There were some stations that we found hard (the chipping into the air) and others were really easy. On station 3 we were the only team to complete it and hit all the cones with our putters. Overall we came 3rd out of ten with 634 points. We did really well considering we only had 2 lessons at school!
