Gymnastics Festival

On the 11th of February 10 Year 5 and 6s went to a Gymnastics Festival at Stonehenge school. When we arrived we were all intimidated by the schools in leotards but funnily enough we beat most of the people in leotards!

We all were really excited and were feeling confident in ourselves and luckily that paid off because the group of children which did the hard routine came 3rd and those that did the easy routine came 10th. Edie got a medal for coming 2nd in the hard routine.

There was lots of different activities such as a tumble track, a vault, and lots more. It was really fun and we were all really proud of ourselves.

Year 5 & 6 Netball Match vs Urchfont

On the 10th of February 2016 myself, Scarlett, Edie, Poppy, Spencer and Tom went to a netball match. It was against Urchfont at Devizes Leisure Centre. We were all very excited and confident and our new kit brought us luck. We passed to each other well and we shot accurately which gave us an overall score of 12 – 0. We are all waiting to hear what position we have finished in in the league but some schools still have fixtures to play.

Orienteering Festival!

Today all children from Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 went to Avon Valley College to take part in an orinteering festival. The children worked in pairs to solve different games and puzzles. There were 4 games to complete and at the end the scores were all added up. All of the children worked extremely hard and represented Woodborough school brilliantly. Some children even won medals!

Mattie said ” Today in orienteering I worked very hard with my partner and we won a medal!”

Charlie explained ” I loved orienteering and we did it all morning!”








Year 5 and 6 Swimming Gala

On Thursday 4th February, we took a team of 12 x Year 5 and 6 children to the Swimming Gala which was held at Marlborough Leisure Centre. All of the children competed in a variety of swimming lengths including relay races. The adults who accompanied them were extremely impressed by how the children supported not only each other, but other schools as well. In addition, the ASA officials noted how well mannered the children from Woodborough School were.

Mrs Blacker and Mrs Lowe who accompanied the team would like to congratulate those children who put themselves out of their comfort zone by competing in races that were not their first choice. This meant that we entered somebody from our school into each race. Well done to all of the children who took part- you were great ambassadors for the school. Woodborough finished fifth overall, and the points were extremely close between third, fourth and fifth place.

We are very grateful to the parents who supported the event and cheered on from poolside.
