Summer 2 

Year 5/6 Golf

We went to cocksmoors leisure centre for a golf competition Team A came 1st Team B came 4th and Team C came 5th. We loved it, I would definitely go again. We learnt that golf isn’t just for old people. We could’ve done better by practicing our golf skills before the competition.

Year 3/4 Golf

We went to cocksmoors leisure centre mini golf range. We went to play a golf competition, we came 2nd in the competition. I would like to go again because I really enjoyed playing golf.

Year 4 Cross Country

We went to Walkers Heath Park, to take part in a running competition. We had to do a long distance run. I really enjoyed running as it is challenging.

Some children were invited to go to Bourneville training ground; 

We went to Bourneville training ground to learn how to play cricket.

I enjoyed hitting the ball and bowling the ball.

I felt like I could have hit the ball more often.

I could use the hitting and bowling in the game to help me win.

Year 2 Multiskills

We went to billesley tennis centre to try and beat other schools at lots of fun games. We did lots of activities involving batting, running, jumping, throwing and kicking. It was really fun and I would like to go again. I learnt how to throw the beanbag over the net. We were really good at the running relay which was really tricky. We could’ve tried harder and worked better as a team.

Year 5 Cross Country

We went to Walkers Heath park to compete in a running competition.

We wanted to win the event but overall we came 4th, even with us coming 4th myself and the team had a really good time. I would like to do it again.

I learnt that if you cheat and cut corners you will be disqualified.

We almost won, I could have kept on going rather than slowing down.

Year 5/6 Dodgeball

We went to Kings Heath Boys School, to take part in a Dodgeball competition against other schools. We finished 2nd after winning 3 games and losing just 1. I really enjoyed it and would love to go again. I learnt how to dodge the balls and that if you caught the ball the person who threw the ball was out. We could’ve done better by bringing more people so that we could split the teams more.

Year 5/6 Hockey

We went to Hollywood Primary School for a Hockey competition to represent our school. We really enjoyed it and would like to go again. We scored a lot of goals and learned how to properly play hockey. We could’ve been a lot better by defending better.
