Evie: The golf was really fun. We did come last but it was really fun. My friend Lavern said she hasn't played before. I was happy when I heard I was playing golf!
John: I think the golf was a really fun game. I did not wantt o go home! i really liked all the games I played, but my favourite one was the one where you had hoop, you hit the ball in and it could bot come out.

Y2 at St Thomas Moore on 18th November (updated: 28th Nov 2014)

Amelia wrote this about the day:
"Today we where at a sports festival. We went there by a yellow coach. First we ate our lunch, after that we done some nice sports activities. At the beginning I was worried but later I enjoyed the day."

** Rounders **

Rounders at Newnham Middle on 9th May 2014. (Updated: 14th May 2014) *
A team of Year 4's had fun playing rounders against 3 other schools (Hills Academy, Goldington Green & Brickhill Lower) at Newnham Middle last week Friday. The children really enjoyed taking part and learning how rounders is played. Read what some of the team had to say about their experience below. Click here to see the photo

Cameron George The game was so much fun and I really enjoyed taking part. I nearly managed to get someone out. There was a funny moment when someone nearly got me out but he dropped the ball. As he went to pick it up he accidentally kicked it away from him and I managed to complete a rounder.
Destiny Burke It was lots of fun and even though we've played rounders before in P.E, it was the first time I've ever played against other schools. My favourite part was the whole game, I enjoyed everything about it!
Maryam Magre At first I was a bit nervous as it was the first time I've played against other schools. My favourite part was getting people out and running to each of the posts. I almost got caught out once when it was my turn to bat. I hit the ball and the catcher caught the ball but then dropped it.
Kirsty Derby I was really scared at first and Mrs Lewis had to run with me when I first started the game. I'd never played the game before and wasn't sure how to play it. Towards the end I was more confident and really enjoyed the game.

Marissa Edwards, Ethan Parsons, Scott Chaplin, Callum Cadel,
Faithlouise Powrie and Noah Windridge were also part of the team

Y3 Gymnastics Festival on 10th January 2014 (Updated: 22nd Jan 2014)
A selection of Y3 pupils went to Lincroft Middle School where they enjoyed a taster session of gymnastics coached by Falcon Gymnastics. The children all enjoyed themselves and tried their best. Have a look at all the photos here
Read what some of them had to say......

Alysia : I enjoyed it when we worked in pairs and used our partners to lean back and hold each other up. We did lots of rolling and tuck jumps on the floor and on the air track. The trampet was lots of fun too. I learned that it is very important to warm up before doing any exercises and if you don't you could really hurt yourself.
Grace : I enjoyed the air track the best and learning to do all the jumps. I had lots of fun at the gymnastics festival
Isabelle : We did lots of different jumps on the air track which I enjoyed. The key to doing the jumps properly was to jump really high and that way you can do the best pose.
Jamie : My favourite part was the airtrack. The warm ups which involved stretching was the most difficult part. The gymnastics was lots of fun and it made me feel very happy
Jennifer : I loved the trampet and air tracks. I used to do gymnastics before so I enjoyed everything and didn't find anything too difficult, I liked the certificate we got in the end.
Vladimir : I enjoyed the airtrack the best. We learned how to do different jumps such as tuck jump, star jump, straight jumps and rollie pollies. I never knew how to do a forward rollie pollie properly before.
