We enjoyed a shorter week last week with there being a Bank holiday and this Blog highlights several incidents of teamwork – all excellent ways to demonstrate the sports values that we are exploring in our Assemblies this half term. Three teams of staff were active over the Bank holiday weekend winning Silver medals in the Workplace Challenge canoe slalom at the Whitewater rafting Centre and finishers medals in the Milton Keynes relay marathon (no baton was dropped!) where each runner in our two teams completed a quarter of the marathon course (10 kilometres each).
Our Y5 Sports Leaders were highlighted as excellent again this week when they accompanied the Y1 pupils to their Multi-skills sports festival at Kingsthorpe College. The Young Leaders were well prepared and knew exactly what activities they were running for the younger pupils who attended from a number of schools.
Our supportive and hardworking team of PTA members ran a ‘Beetle and Bingo’ evening on Friday and this was enjoyed by a good number of families. It is always good fun and raises some much-needed funds at the same time. The School Council are currently helping to decide what play equipment to ask the PTA to buy with their money raised this year.
