KS1 Gymnastics Team Take Gold
The year has ended on a real high after our youngest team of gymnasts put in a fantastic performance at the Priestlands Sports Partnership event in the final week of the autumn term. Having been rather busy with their amazing Christmas show 'Hey Ewe!' the children had to steal a few moments between Christmas Parties and visiting theatre company visits to practise their two routines for the competition. Coached once again by our very own gym guru, Mrs Cummings, the children worked their socks off to learn the sequences of balances and moves before the event. The children were so keen, they even forewent their Christmas dinner to compete!
Just like our Yr 3/4 team, they impressed the judges with both routines, scoring highly on both. The combined scores put them in first place for the event and they returned to the school as 2018 Trophy Winners!
Congratulations to everyone in the team, to Mrs Cummings for her coaching and to the parents who helped with transport and support on the day.
What a way to round off the 2018 Sport Calendar!!
