The Year 6 have also been enjoying a week and a half at the London Aquatics Center, they have been learning how to be safe within water and how fun, exciting and how great it is for their physical development. They're last day will be this Friday 14th June.

Girls Football Festival Years 5 And 6

Our girls have never played football or had a football game before so they went there with no experience. Despite having no experience the girls played really well. The first game they had was a struggle and they didn't know what to do but throughout the day there other games started improving, and so did there communication skills, teamwork and confidence. They gave the other teams a really difficult time during matches.Over 150 girls took part in the festival.

Year 3/4 Girls Football Festival

Yesterday was a great day for football as the sun was shining with a cool breeze blowing, and a whiff of freshly cut grass brushing our noses. Jumpers and coats scattered around with packed lunches filled to the brim and over spilling. 100's of girls running around in there colorful football kits with energy to last a lifetime. Nervously waiting for there turn to play, watching in awe as each team score or miss game changing goals.

The girls started off with low confidence and as they got into more games they started to become confident and adamant to win and ended up playing in the advanced matches and scored loads of goals. They successfully got 1 win 2 draws and only 1 loss.
One of the girls scored and amazing goal and they had great determination as well as great sports person-ship

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday period.

This Summer term 1 in Gainsborough the children will be doing Athletics/Fitness.

During Fitness the children will learn more about their bodies as we will touch on components of fitness and go in depth with the older year groups.

During Athletics, they will learn techniques that can help them progress for themselves. They will also understand they can use determination and focus to improve their personal best.

Enjoy Your Day,
