Skip to be Fit!

We enjoyed (some staff might say suffered!) a brilliant day of skipping. All classes took part trying to beat their best in two minutes’ skipping. Well done to our champion skippers, and to our overall superstar skipper in year 5.

Every child now skips during the week – every afternoon for key stage 1 and twice each week for key stage 2 – trying to beat their best score. There is also lots of skipping practice at playtime.

Year 4 Cricket Success

Year 4 entered Swanage Cricket Club’s Annual school competition determined to bring the trophy back to school for a second time.

Although a little disheartened when they saw the opponents were mainly year 5 and 6 pupils, they battled on and won two of their first three games. This saw them in the final against St Mark’s. We batted first and saw numerous 4s and 6s flying through the boundaries in all directions, reaching an awesome 296 at the end of the innings. Our fielding carried on in a spectacular fashion with many wickets being taken at the stumps. St Mark’s played well but couldn’t reach our total.

Well done to the team for bringing back the trophy!
