A WEEK OF SPORT
The theme for school assemblies this week is hard work and determination. I introduced it by showing the children two film clips: the first of Andy Murray's training schedule and the second of Kyle Maynard's mountain climbing success. Both films fitted the theme perfectly.
This week some of our children are involved in sporting competitions and will have an opportunity to show their grit and determination. Today, Tuesday, the school netball team will be playing their first match of the season against Fulwell A team.
On Thursday Yr 5 are spending the day in a basketball tournament at the university's CitySpace. They have been working with their coach for several weeks in preparation for this so we wish them the very best of luck.
On Thursday a group of Yr 5 and 6 swimmers are representing our school at the Aquatic Centre. We hope they are motivated to swim their races with new personal bests.
And staying on the theme of sport, next week Mr. Wilson will begin working with Years 3 and 4. Building on the Olympic success of the women's hockey team, he will introduce them to the game and build up their skills in the year ahead in preparation for matches in 2018.
