On Wednesday 27th June, we attended the KS1 Scatterball competition. The children have been working extremely hard in their P.E sessions this term to develop their throwing and fielding skills as well as their tactics. They played brilliantly at the competition and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship at all times. They were fantastic ambassadors for our school, well done to all of them!




On Friday 27th April, we were invited to attend the KS1 Football competition. We trained together after school and our team worked fantastically  together during the competition despite the absolute downpour! There was lots of fancy footwork and the boys used their skills to have face paced and tactful games. Our boys really enjoyed themselves and were fantastic ambassadors for the school.














On Friday 16th March, we attended the Basingstoke schools football festival.

Our children had a wonderful time playing against lots of different schools, and they all grew in confidence as the matches went on. It was a great chance for some of our children to experience football matches for the first time and they all had a fantastic football filled afternoon.











On Wednesday 31st January, our children went to the KS1 Gymnastics competition. The children had a brilliant afternoon and were fantastic representatives of our school, showing off our fancy new team shirts! They had to learn two routines and hold gymnastic shapes with finesse as well as testing their skills on a challenging course with a local Gymnastics coach.


Well done to all of the children who took part.





In the Autumn term, our Year 1 and 2 children had coaching sessions for Fencing and Tag Rugby.


The children loved having a go at Fencing and using the new equipment, with many of them never having had a go before. They had to work hard on their footwork, which was really tricky at first, but once they got the hang of it they really enjoyed exhibiting their new fencing skills.


During the second half of the term the children had some Tag Rugby sessions. Some of our children were very familiar with this as they already play outside school. Tag Rugby gave the children lots of opportunities to improve their ball and spatial awareness skills as well as playing collaboratively. 


If your child does not currently play Tag Rugby outside of school but is keen to, please contact Sharon Allen (Team manager) at the Basingstoke Rugby club to arrange your child having a go!

On Wednesday 15th November we attended the KS1 Skipping Competition.

Our children had a wonderful afternoon participating in a variety of skipping challenges including individual skipping on a long rope, individual skipping with a short rope and showing off some tricks!


We came a respectable 4th and have come away with a lot of happy skippers.

Well done to all of the children who took part.
