Wednesday 26th November 2019 - Speed Bounce Competition
A few weeks ago our bronze and health ambassadors organised a speed bounce competition in school for our KS2 children to take part in.

Mrs Moxham came into school and tested the top 20 children and will combine their scores against other schools to find an overall school winner. Good luck to all the children involved - look out for further updates to come on how well we did against the other schools.

Wednesday 27th March football report by Filip
Our first match was against Applecroft and we drew with them 0-0. The next match was against Birchwood and we lost 1-0 then we knew we had to pass the ball quicker; and it worked. The next match we played well and won 2-1, first we were losing 1-0 but then we came with two goals to end the match as a win. Our next match was against our next door neighbours, Waterside Academy and we stayed strong and drew. We had multiple attacks but it came to nothing in the end. Well done to everyone that played at this tournament.

Well done to all the children who took part and a big thank you to our ambassadors for doing such a fantastic job to promote an active lunchtime!
