Last Friday , Y4 went to Oaklands College for the Sports Partnership County Finals. We had beaten 20 school teams from the local and partnership finals to get there. A massive achievement in the first place!! Well done Maya, Marli, Mia, Alice, Zoe, Aidan, Austin, Charlie, Jon and Max!
We were super excited and nervous to take part, there were 9 other teams, who had all beaten 20 school teams as well, all competing for the Tri – Golf Trophy! We had a lovely day and worked really hard in the first half ……. so well that we were in the lead!
So we were very excited and more nervous….. even the adults! We played as hard as we could congratulating each other at every shot. The scorers were so impressed with us they gave us a Team work baton! We were very proud.
We continued to play well and enjoyed the sunshine as we were playing.
Once it was over we needed to wait half an hour while they counted the scores. It felt a long time. We had tried our very best and worked extremely hard.
Out of the 9 teams, we came 3rd!! WE CAME 3rd!! AMAZING! Well done Y4 tri – golf team. We are very proud. We will display the teamwork baton and certificate on the sports board in September!
10 members of the netball team went to Abbots Langley to take part in a friendly netball tournament. First we played Divine Saviour and Tanners won 8-7. It was fabulous to see how the ball went from end to end and both teams had great set pieces.
Next, we played Abbots and we dominated most of the match again with great set play from Erin, Marli, Ciara and Tia. Ciara’s shooting greatly improved as every time she shot, she scored! Well done Tanners for great team work. We look forward to the netball league in the Autumn Term, a great team developing.
In RE we are hearing a range of different religious stories from a variety of different religions. Today we heard the story Prince Siddhartha and the Swan, which is a Buddhist story about caring for animals. We made posters about how we would care for animals.
This is the second delivery of library books bought through our commission from the Scholastic book fair. Thanks to all who contributed by buying books! The next fair will in November!
The children are using their vast knowledge of fairytales to mind map which stories include a Princess. This will help the children when they begin writing their own poems- “These are the things a Princess fears…”
