Swimming Gala – Last week we took part in a swimming gala at the Oratory School pool competing against local primary schools.


There were a mixture of traditional races including relays and fun races.  There were some excellent performances, with our relay teams performing extremely well.  Overall we finished in a fantastic second place. Well done to Jana Scholey, Isabel Carr, Eilis Murphy, Maddy Dudley, Zak Doherty, Imogen Freedman, Kathryn Hall, Sam Taylor, Max Preshner, Harry Hogan, Adam Wise, Lucy Ball, Alex Ostridge, Conrad Warren, Josh Palmer and Josh Brant.


Olympics 5 keys to success – Last Friday we had a very entertaining assembly performed by The Magic Club.  The assembly was interactive and fun and focussed on the 5 keys to success, which are used by athletes to promote success in sport.  The 5 keys are Self belief, Commitment, Motivation, Goals and Team work.  As a school we will refer to these keys throughout the summer term, leading up to the Olympics.


SATs – Next week Year 6 pupils will be sitting their mandatory Year 6 SATs tests in Literacy and Maths.  The pupils have been preparing well for these and we wish them all the best for next week.
