At the recent Hockey tournament there were hardly any disappointments. Did the hockey team do very well? Yes we did. We played in the plate cup game and came 4th out of 24 schools.
How did everyone do?
Miss Frampton was extremely proud of us. We drew 2 games, lost 1 game and won the rest. Kieran was our star player by shooting eight goals and Niamh and Fin frost scored 1 each. Over all, all of us did very well as a team.
What challenges did you overcome?
Unfortunately at first there were only a few players so we needed to draft some more players to play. One of our players was left handed so they had to learn how to play right handed because left handed sticks are banned because they are too dangerous to go in and tackle. Many of the team only had 2 days to train also whereas the other school trained a lot.
How are we going to improve for next year?
We will continue to practise at lunch time for next year’s hockey mini youth games we will try to come first next year.
How did everyone else do?
Our relatives Cuxton came first place. We are proud of them. Cuxton trained every lunch time but we only trained on Tuesdays after school for one hour.

What is the daily mile?
Every morning on a school day the whole school do a fitness activity called the Daily Mile. Each child will walk for ten minutes around the playground. The sports council supervise this fun part of the day and makes sure the children are behaving and having fun.
Why do we do this?
We do this so that the children can remain fit and healthy. There is a government scheme to keep children fit and healthy for one hour a day to ensure they are healthy. The Daily Mile is a help in ensuring that this gets done!
Is this working?
Nathaniel thinks, "personally, this is working because when the children come back into class they are ready to learn.
Ayaan suggests, "

Why are we inviting the parents?
We are inviting the parents so that they can see the importance of their children doing an hours worth of activities daily. Whether that is running around with their dog, walking to school or playing sports outside after school. At school we provide at least 30 minutes of activities a day, the daily mile being a substantial part of this. All we need now is parents to make sure their children are getting another 30 minutes at home!
What time and day do parents need to come in?
