On Thursday Y3 enjoyed a tremendous sports day at the English Institute of Sport.
During the event we took part in a range of activities. We all tried our hardest and Mr Little is proud of the effort shown by every one of us.
Some of us even received a special mention from our group leaders. These children perfectly demonstrated the school games values of teamwork, respect, honesty, self belief, passion and determination.
Congratulations to this person who was recognised by our swimming teachers as having made a huge improvement in his water confidence.

Last week Y3 had the chance to work with the Y5 play Leaders on some new games. We played tig, fill the nest and had some really fun races. The Leaders led the session really well and we had loads of fun.
We can’t wait for our play leaders to be leading games on our playground at break and dinner time soon.
Last week, Sapphire class walked to Manor Fields to take part in the fun run! When we arrived there were other schools there and we all took part in the warm up which included jumping, turning and clapping. Then, we all ran round the whole 1.5km course and finished it.
Today we visited Norfolk Park to take part in some orienteering.
We had to read a map and find our way around the park and find some special posts. On these posts was a number and a letter. Once we had found all the letters we had to unscramble them to make a word. Our word was ‘bluebell’.
On Thursday we enjoyed another boccia session with our coaches.
Boccia is a Paralympic sport that tests muscle control and accuracy. Players propel balls to land close to a target ball. Two sides compete as individuals, pairs or as a team of three over a set number of ends
We have loved learning to play boccia, some of us have even asked our parents for a boccia set so we can play at home!
