On Monday 9th January Reception to Year 6 took part in some Skipping workshops run by Lizzie. She had us working hard from the minute our workshops started, and we were all exhausted by the end! We learnt a variety of different skills and techniques to help improve our skipping and we even learnt some tricks too! We learnt how to speed skip as well as skip forwards and backwards. Some of us had a go at some tricks including cross-overs, arm wraps and the pretzel! The older children had a go at partner skipping as well as some Double Dutch. At the end of the day the whole school watched a performance where Lizzie and some of the pupils showed us what they had learnt.
We had a fantastic time at our workshops and the show, thank you very much to Lizzie for coming in and working with us!
On Friday 18th November the Netball team asked St Olaves over to West Lodge to play a friendly netball match. There were four quarters and whenever a quarter ended everyone would switch to different sides of the court. It was quite hard for the shooters to keep up! When the four quarters were over we gave three cheers to St Olaves, however we were all bursting with excitement as we had won the match 12-4. St Olaves were tough to beat but West Lodge are even tougher! It was a very enjoyable afternoon.
On Friday 25th November the Netball team went to Farringtons. It was supposed to be a league match but some of her players were missing so we made it a friendly instead. We will rearrange the league game. We played four quarters of 7 minutes each way. Farringtons were good at their netball so they weren’t easy to beat, but we did still win 16-3 to us. It was a very enjoyable match to play!
