Tuesday 21st February 

Today we had a meeting to discuss how we could get back to organising lunchtimes and personal challenge activities again. The crew decided that rather than 1 group a day they prefer to try everyone out at once. We had a trial run the following day and it was a great success. All 12 crew were out and they organised 6 different activities on the KS2 playground. Speed bounce, clap catch, tic tac toe, archery, target throw and giant Jenga.

Friday 14th January 2022

In todays meeting we discussed ideas for another inter house event for both years 3/4 and 5/6.

because of the rise in cases of covid we can not play any matches or sports against other schools so have decided to create our own competition.

Friday 11th February 

Well it’s been a very tough few weeks with covid raging through school and today was the first time that all our crew were in school and back together again. Today we started to plan some Inter House competitions that we could run as part of our school plans for the Queens platinum jubilee celebrations. The House captains and school captains were invited along to the meeting too. Each team have been given the task of thinking about an activity that the whole school could join in, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a sports event either. 
I can’t wait to listen to their ideas once we get back from half term !!
