This year's netball season got off to a great start today with our U11 team taking part in the start of league tournament hosted by Colfe's.
The girls played 8 matches in total with only a ten minute break throughout the whole tournament! Their play improved significantly throughout the afternoon and their sportsmanship was commendable with the girls encouraging each other, coaching each other and congratulating other teams on their successes. The girls demonstrated some excellent movement on the court as well as some superb interceptions and shooting.
The teams played and scores acheived were as follows:
Breaside: 4-2 (Loss)
Blackheath Prep: 6-1 (Win)
Blackheath High: 2-0 (Win)
Colfe's: 2-0 (Win)
Merton Court: 4-1 (Win)
Farringtons: 6-1 (Loss)
Babington House: 7-0 (Win)
Bromley High: 5-2 (Loss)
Thank you so much to the parents who came along to support the team today, to Mrs Backley for her fabulous coaching and to the girls themselves for their commitment and hard work. Here's to the rest of the season. Keep it up girls!
On Thursday 7th September Year 4 took part in a very ‘messy’ science lesson. We have started our topic about Animals, including Humans, and we were learning about the digestive system. What better way to learn about the digestive system than to create our own!
We watched Miss Ayling demonstrate using different pieces of equipment to represent different parts of the body, such as the oesophagus and the small and large intestines. We were then split into small groups and had a go at showing what happens from food entering our mouth to when it leaves our bodies. We worked really hard to use lots of new and exciting vocabulary to help us understand how digestion works.
