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.

Year 5 and 6 Hockey Festival

On the 27th of February 20 children from Y4, Y5 and Y6 went to Wellington Academy to play in a hockey tournament. We had 2 teams, the blue team and the red team, 10 on each side. Ned and Harry were the only year 4’s that participated – so well done! Both teams came 4th out of 7 teams. We got a trophy for sighing up for all of the sports events and got a certificate for getting lots of stickers. The stickers showed good sportsmanship.
