On Tuesday 4 boys represented the school at the Primary Penathlon at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium. The boys competed in a variety of sports which required a variety of skills such as throwing, catching and running. The boys showed a true growth mindset and determination throughout the event.

Last week years 3, 4, 5 and 6 participated in the annual Cross country event at the Misbourne. All students ran the set course; each participant showed a real growth mindset and sportsmanship by encouraging others and kept running when things got tough. To top it off we also had lots of success with many children finishing in the top ten
On Tuesday, four children from Year 3 and 4 took part in a 'Bisi Badminton' tournament. There were 9 stations to complete, involving a rally, shuttlecock sprints and wall jumps. The children were absolutely brilliant and managed to win the tournament. They have now qualified for the School Games in the Summer. Well done!
On Thursday, 11 children from year 5 accompanied Mr Kaye to a handball competition hosted at Little Kingshill School. The competition was fierce but the year 5’s worked incredibly hard to make their mark. The teams we were playing were well trained and we found it difficult to initially pick up the rules and attack. However, we showed true grit and determination by bouncing back from defeat and scoring some well-earned goals in the next few games – probably something to do with the growth mindset training the children are accustomed to. We battled through immense cold and even snow at one point to grab some deserved points in the next round. We finished fourth in the tournament but we got a special mention as the team that improved the most over the competition. I am certain that when we return again next year the children will be seasoned professionals.
On Wednesday 16th November Year 1 attended a Multi skills event at the Misbourne. During the afternoon they participated in numerous activities such as:
- Hockey Skills
The children we fantastically behaved and showed brilliant team work, determination and fair play. Well done Year 1! J

As part of their PE lesson Year 1 went orienteering on the KS2 playground. Orienteering is an Outdoor Adventurous Activity (OAA).
OAA is a fundamental part of the PE curriculum where children participate in a range of activities whichpresent intellectual and physical challenges. OAA encourages children to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems.
Year 1 worked in pirate teams to find the characters and the secret numbers; they had to work as a team to find all the numbers. The teams all shared brilliantly and worked exceptionally well.
You are great Year 1.
