KS2 Cricket Festival
On Wednesday 1st May, six Year 2 and 3 children spent the morning at Dorchester Recreational Ground taking part in a cricket festival organised by the Dorset Cricket Board. They learnt various skills at different stations around the ground including throwing, catching, fielding and batting. The children really enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot of new skills.
On 20th June, with the sun eventually shining through by the end, all children across the school took part in our annual sports day. Our sports day included all the favourites including sack race, egg and spoon, relay, flat race and Reception’s obstacle race. Sports Day ended up on a wet-note (as always!) with the Year 4 leaver’s race, where Year 3 and the parents of Year 4 make it their responsibility to get Year 4 as wet as possible! A brilliant day was had by all!!
Throughout this year, the whole school have been taking part in The Daily Mile. This is where each class go out for about 10 minutes a day and run around the field or playground to see how many laps they can do in this time frame. 10 laps of the field or 2 laps of the playground is 1 mile. This is on top of their normal 2 hours of PE. This term, we have been lucky enough to be joined by the RAF, the police and the Year 8 sports leaders from St Mary's Middle School who each completed a mile with us. We will continue with The Daily Mile next year and have some exciting ideas in the pipeline!!
