Gymnastics Blog


On Friday 21st September my class went to a gymnastics class. It was very interesting. First we started with some fun exercises; we did squats, star jumps, cartwheels and handstands. My favourite activity was using the tumble mat, which was really springy. I did lots of cartwheels and bunny hops.

House Football Tournament

On a very wet Friday four house teams (plus supporters!) turned out for the house tournament finals. Birch played Willow in a gripping 3rd/4th play-off match. There were plenty of chances from both sides but Birch scored the only goal and won the game.

The final followed between houses Ash and Oak. Both teams attacked strongly and had chances but couldn’t score any goals. The game went to golden goal and Arthur Dobson scored a fantastic goal to win the game and the tournament.

Well done Ash house and a massive thank you to all the pupils who played and sports crew members for officiating, you all did a fantastic job.

My horses and I
Hi my name is Molly and I am 11 years old. I have two ponies called Poppet and May. I have been riding for 6 years and I don't know what I would do if I didn't do this.
On Saturday 2nd March my Nun and I took part in the Quorn Hunt ride, it was eight miles and the horses were so tired afterwards. We galloped over fields and it was so much fun. I jumped over a little log that as about 40cm and it was brilliant. Then on the 9th March I went to Aylesford and did some show jumping and cross country in the arenas and it was great fun. I hit my lip and nose when riding May and it really hurt. I went with two other girls who did well too. A big thank you to my Mum for helping me all the way.
