Tri Golf

Year 2 took part in a Tri-golf tournament. We learnt lots of new skills, including standing in the correct position and how to swing the club.  It was tricky to use the golf club at first but we finally got the hang of it. We came in second place in the tournament. Well done!

Multi Skills

Year One took part in a multi skills morning with some of the other schools from our local area. It was lots of fun trying new games and activities, such as rugby and the hurdles. We worked well as a team and it was great meeting new friends too. We are going to try some of these games, in P.E later during the week.
