A Scorching Hot Mini Olympics 2016!

What a fantastic day today was! Great to see so many children enjoying their ‘olympic’ events this morning followed by some superb races this afternoon.

Thanks must go to all the children for competing so hard and in good spirits on a scorching hot day also to all the sports leaders, teachings and helpers who made it possible and to all the parents for their support throughout the day!

Congratulations to all of those children who scored the most points in their year and a big congratulations to all the children in Selsley who wrestled back the shield after Haresfield after a 4 year winning streak!

Others include activities are aimed at developing key fundamentals such as running, jumping, throwing, and target-based games. The team had to collect points from each activity station.

Back at Forest School!

Owls at Gastrells

We were really excited to go back on the Forest School site today.It has been very slippery after the bad weather so we have been going for walks instead. It was good to be able to climb, build dens, hammer in stakes and do some swinging today. We had lots of fun even though it was cold and frosty. We put fleeces on and Jasper said he was wearing 6 layers!

Yesterday we performed our paired routines to the Owls, we were a little nervous but loved being able to show all of our hard work and the Owls were really impressed. After our performance, we had the opportunity to watch the Ospreys perform their routines and they were fantastic. We hope we will be just as good as them when we become Ospreys in September!
