Of our Enrichment Week done. The children all enjoyed the Fencing (with Shaun from Wycliffe) and The Birds of Prey (with Luke from Wye Valley Falconry). All members of the class managed to become genuine Olympic contenders with their swords and most people took the opportunity to handle a Northern White Faced Owl.
Orienteering was a great success, followed by Ultimate Frisbee. The ATLAS boys were very impressed. Archery, Nerf Battles and Wet Sponge Dodgeball were thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Today we had the Sumo Suits and Gladiator Inflatable. There were many laughs and a few bumps and bruises. After some frantic phone calls due to a provider letting us down, we had the highlight of the day, Zorbing Bubble Football. I think I enjoyed this even more than the kids!!
By now I am sure that your children will have told you all about our day! We started off with the first ever Leonard Stanley Triathlon and to say that I was proud of all of their efforts would be a massive understatement. They were magnificent. Kids were running through the pain barrier, through the nervous barrier, through the “I can’t breathe” barrier and, in one case, almost through the actual barrier showing them where to go. People were running with injured feet, injured arms and tired heads from yesterday’s football. Myself, Mrs Lacey, Mr Babbage and Mrs Jones would like to give every single child a massive thank you and to say how in awe we are of their determination. Win or lose, first or fifth, it didn’t matter. They gave it their all and the smiles of accomplishment afterwards showed that it was all worth it – although it probably took 5 minutes or so for the legs to stop hurting and the lungs to calm down. It was brilliant!! The ice creams helped, as well.
The afternoon session was much more relaxed – for some… We had a Meet our Buddy afternoon with Reception class. Both sets of kids loved this experience and all of the staff from EYFS were commenting on how grown up and lovely the Year 6s were. They were all a credit to themselves and to you.
Wet & Wild… no words needed!
