Move More Key Steps Gymnastics- Y5/6

Mrs Godsell and Mr Boston took the Y5/6 gymnastics team to the Move More Key Steps Competition on Thursday 13th February and were immensely proud of the girls. They had trained hard together as a team learning routines for the floor and vault, encouraging and helping each other out during practices. On the morning lots of the girls were feeling nervous; about forgetting their routines and the vault which looked much bigger than the one at school. The team dug deep, demonstrating the values of determination, passion and self-belief. They competed in the first part of the morning and spent the rest of the time watching the other schools competing.

The girls were rightly very pleased with themselves returning back to school with a number of medals. Most notably the team was awarded 2nd place silver medal position. What a fantastic achievement. All those positive attitudes and dedication to practising really paid off.

They were also awarded:

2nd place on Vault- Lily-Mae

3rd place on floor- Jess

2nd place on floor- Chloe

Values bands for; Determination- Taiya and Teamwork -Jess.

At the end of a fun filled morning the team were surprised to discover that they had come first in the competitiom, beating all of the other teams. Each member of the team was awarded a gold medal and certificate. The school was also presented with a framed certificate and trophy. Congratulations!

Last week, 4 of our pupils from Y3 and Y4 went with Mrs Godsell to the New Age Kurling event at Cleeve School. The children had a fantastic morning participating in many enjoyable games of Kurling against a number of other schools. This was a very new sport for our team and they did well to find themselves in the playoffs for 9th and 10th position.
