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.

Roundup of events at Brooksby show jumping competition
I went to brooksby on the 16th November and got two rosttes. So when we first got there I was shaking with nerves but I then remebered I had been here before and felt better. I went to go and see the course while my mum tacked up Poppy my pony. I was the first to go in the 40cm class. Poppet had two massive spooks, but I stayed on, we carried on and when we got to jump 12 we were done.
I got joint 6th and I was very pleased and thanks to my mum and poppet.
