Year 3 and 4 Tennis

On Friday 8th of June 18 children went to a tennis festival at Avon Valley College. There were 5 schools there, we were split in to three teams A team, B team and C team. There were two pools and A and B teams were in pool 1 and C team were in pool 2. A team and C team got into the semi-finals but B team still did incredibly well. A team and C team were against each other in the semi-finals Harry Phillips was on the A team and Ned Allen was on the C team whoever won that match their team would go to the finals. Ned hit the ball and it rolled over the net but unfortunately Harry lost the point so the C team got into the finals. The C team were against Rushall but it was who gets the most points, Rushall got one more point than C team so they won. We did extremely well and we would love to do it again – it was incredibly close!

Gymnastics Final

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.
