Open to years 1 to 6. We are lucky to have an ex-pro golf teacher that teaches skills all year round which can be indoors and outdoors. (depending on weather).

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind
Open to years 5 & 6. Through mindfulness sessions, children will be invited to follow some simple relaxation techniques. These will help them to know how to relax and develop concentration and boost self-esteem.
Open to years 2 to 6. We have invested in new fitted posts outdoors and a hoop in our infant hall so all can learn fast paced ball skills and jumping/scoring.
Open to years 2 to 6. Children will be able to learn martial arts and new life skills with LondonTKD where they aim to teach the basic principles of self-defence whilst working on discipline, focus and self-confidence.

Report from Mrs Johnson:
The last match of the season was played on Wednesday 7th March and what a finish to the season. This fixture was arranged as a friendly with Woodcote Primary because they had such lovely praise for our teams and the way the children showed sportsmanship and were so friendly and welcoming.
All our shooting ‘woes’ finally left us and we were able to convert our goal scoring opportunities into 6 brilliant goals. It was fantastic to see the team working so well together and converting all their chances to score.
It was a lovely end to a really positive season. Although not reflected sometimes in the scores, both A and B teams have ‘grown’ so much this season, learning a great deal about their positions and how to play the game competitively. Both myself and Miss Sutton have been proud to see how much the children have enjoyed representing their school. It has also been particularly pleasing to see a handful of girls start training outside of school at local clubs. Thank you to all 20 children who showed commitment to training and to matches. Thanks also goes to parents for supporting us at fixtures both home and away.
Please note that all children in Key Stage 2 are welcome to join the Homework club which is run on a Monday lunchtime please speak to their class teacher for more information.
