During the autumn term the boys have been developing their football, gymnastics and tag rugby skills. Next term EYFS boys will be focusing on team games and throwing, catching and aiming games. Year 1 and 2 will be developing their tag rugby skills ready for their fixtures and introduced to uni-hoc and handball. All the boys develop their agility, balance and coordination through weekly dance and/or gymnastic lessons.

There were many excellent performances during the 16 autumn term sports fixtures across the school. Squirrels continue to go from strength to strength on the sports field and this is reflected in our Year 2 boys who are highly motivated, skilful and producing excellent results. Year 2 won the Rokeby Football tournament as well as the Aldro and Cranmore Football Tournaments this term.  I look forward to seeing the Reception and Year 1 boys develop and produce equally fantastic performances in the future whilst learning about the value of sportsmanship and enjoyment of the game regardless of the result. The last two sports events this term will be the Year 1 & 2 inter-house football competition on Monday 9th December.

I hope you enjoy reading some of the comments below from the boys which give a good insight into how important school sport is to them. I look forward to a wonderful 2020 which will include many more fixtures, Year 2 PGL trip, new Year 1 Exploration Society Trips, new Dance Workshops and of course Sports Day on Friday 22nd May.  

Yours sportingly,

Mr A. Morrison
