Class News

Thank you for all the positive feedback received about the two sports day events on Tuesday this week.  The children had lots of activities to take part in and all parents did a great job of being in the right area to watch field or track events at just the right times. Every child took part and it was lovely to see the old favourites like egg and spoon and sack races back in the KS2 event.  The day was a credit to our children who definitely lived our school motto of “learning, Caring, Sharing” shown through their support and encouragement for their team mates.


Scores – We do know the outcome but unfortunately have not yet had the opportunity to gather all the children together and let them know.  Since they were the athletes competing we feel it is important that they know first!  Therefore the Sports Cup will be awarded to the winning house on Monday in assembly and we will let you all know after that!  Sorry to keep you all in suspense!


Oak Class
