Today we took 14 children from year 2 to a multi skills festival at Retford Oaks which was organised by Michala Swales who is the Bassetlaw SGO.
The event was run by the Sportsleaders from the Oaks and was a great success.
The children played some hockey 🏑 and volleyball 🏐 they also learnt about disabilities in sport and had a go at blindfolded football. They were also set some team challenges to see how good they were at teamwork and communication. Below are some pictures of this afternoons festival.

Today we took two teams of pupils from years 5/6 to compete in this event. Each Team consisted of 10 pupils and the idea is that 5 play one half and 5 play the other half, also you must have a minimum of 2 girls on court at all times.
There were 7 teams altogether which meant everyone played 6 matches. Both of our teams did really well, they both won 2 games, draw 2 games and lost 2 games. Out of the 7 teams they both came joint 3rd overall which was an amazing achievement. Well done to everyone that played and represented our school.
This was a two part event organised by our SGO and held at Retford Oaks. The first part was on Tuesday 9th January, in total 8 school's attended. The theme was The WorldCup and each school was given a country and had to learn a dance related to it. We were given France 🇫🇷 and the dance leaders from Retford Oaks had worked out a routine for our pupils to learn.
We then returned back to schoolwith the music and the moves and had two weeks to practice the routine. Miss Edwards was in charge of our dancers and she practiced with them every lunchtime. They knew the routine off by heart and even added some extra bits.
We then returned to Retford Oaks two weeks later and after a short rehearsal with the other school's everyone performed in front of parents,friends and families.
It was a fantastic show and all our dancers loved it.
This was a one of event aimed at pupils that don't play football for the school team and to give them an opportunity to have a game. It was split into two age groups, years 5/6 and years 3/4 and each team could field 6 players at a time. Each team played 4 matches and the whole event was a great success. Thank you St Johns for hosting.
On Friday 9th February we took 12 pupils from years 4 and 6 to this festival. The idea was to introduce the pupils to dodge ball and learn some basic skills needed to play the game. There were 7 different activities all based on a different skill. Each school rotated around the activities spending 10 minutes at each one.
After a short break the pupils from all the schools were mixed up into 9 teams. They then played each other using some of the skills they had just learnt.
Thankyou to all the sports leaders from Retford Oaks for leading the sessions. You were all brilliant.
