The whole school had great fun on Tuesday and Wednesday, participating in our Skip2Bfit skipping workshops. During the sessions, the children took part in a personal challenge and aimed to improve their own skipping times in 2 minutes. Both days ended with an assembly to award certificates to the winners and a skip off between the top teacher and pupil! We all had a fabulous time and Year 5 have already skipped again on Thursday to try and improve their scores.
Thank you so much to all the parents and children who have bought their own ropes - it already looks like we will be adding another 10-15 skipping ropes to our school collection. We are so pleased that the children have caught the skipping bug! Hope you all have lots of fun skipping over the holiday.
Miss Smith will be running lunchtime skipping next term in the playground or the Star Lab on a Thursday - hope to see lots of you trying to improve your scores!
Year 3 Sports Festival
On Wednesday, Stafford hosted a festival for the schools in our Alliance. We welcomed children from Stone Cross, Grovelands and Bourne. With our Year 3s, there were 300 children taking part in lots of fun activities including frisbee, Tri-golf, dodgeball, football, athletics and tennis. Everyone tried really hard and had lots of fun - we were really lucky to avoid the rain and it was lovely to see lots of people trying new sports. Thank you so much to all the people who helped on the day.
