Staying active during our time off school.

Last week, your teachers went through some ideas with you for staying active during this period, such as exercise routines on Youtube.

Here are some more ideas to look at:

Make sure you stay busy. Physical exercise is a big part of this. If you can't get outside for fresh air, bring the fun indoors and try something new at home!

Yesterday, the Yr 3/4 gymnastics competition finally took place here at school. It consisted of two events: body management and vault. In total, 7 children took part (Sophia, Prisha, Bryan, Tianna, Alina, Ayaan and Keirah). It proved almost impossible to separate the gymnasts, but in the end we did decide upon our winners:

1st Prisha

2nd Sophia

3rd Tianna



Wednesday 4th March

This week we welcomed some new children to running club. They were very excited to visit Abington park where they practised their running skills and took part in races over different distances. Our new runners are Sa'ad, Mario and Alan from Year 3; Huw, Lilya and Chloe from Year 4 and Andreea and Marius from Year 5.

Today 4 of our children (Hasham, Keirah, Harley and Aliya) competed in the local finals of KS2 boccia. Previously they won the qualifying round to get this stage. They didn't disappoint at the finals and came really close to winning the competition outright. In the end they placed in third position and were very happy to take home bronze medals.


Last Friday, our Year 5/6 football team took part in a football tournament held by Northampton Town Football Club at the Goals Soccer Centre. We had a great day out and had lots of fun competing against other schools from around Northamptonshire. In total, we played 4 matches (winning 2 and narrowly losing the other 2). Hopefully, later in the year there will be more chances to go off and play more football matches.


Friday 10/1/20

Today four Year 5 and 6 children (Andreea, Austeja, Rodrigo and Kacper) represented the school in a gymnastics competition at Benham Sports Centre. They had been training and preparing with a professional gymnastics coach before Christmas and this really showed when it came to competition time. The competition consisted of 3 events (body management, vault and floor routine). Although they performed brilliantly in all three, it was in the floor event where they really shone. Soon, some Year 3 children will also be going off to represent the school in a similar competition and hopefully our Year 5s and 6s will be able to pass on some advice to them prior to the day.
