Our annual sports day was a huge success (and the sunshine even made an appearance!) The children worked together in teams, across a range of activities, to earn points with the winning team being the 'Glorious Gorrilas.' The Year 6 children did an amazing job of leading their teams and supporting the younger children. Well done to all the children involved and a big thank you to the PTA who provided refreshments.
Eight children took part in the recent aquathlon which was held at William Barnes Primary School. The children worked in teams of four to complete the event. They firstly had to swim eight lengths before putting on a t-shirt and trainers to then run around the recreation ground. It was lovely to see the children work together as a team and you can see from the photos below just how tired they were! Team 1 finished seventh and team 2 finished twelfth. Well done to all involved!
The children have been very busy taking part in recent sporting events. Firstly, eight boys from Desert Class took part in a cricket competition in Shillingstone. They played brilliantly and only lost one match meaning that they finished fifth out of fourteen. Well done boys!
Lots of the children in key stage two took part in the recent athletics competition at Sturminster Newton High School. All of the children competed well with some of them getting through to the finals. It was a brilliant evening which all of the children enjoyed. A special mention to the Year 5 boys relay time and Eddie who came first in their event.
Our swimming team did a fantastic job at the recent swimarathon! They swam 55 laps which was 110 lengths and raised over £200 - well done!
