Dance Festival

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.

Orienteering Festival

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!

Squash with Cherry and Elm

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.
