This term we will all be completing a ‘Marathon in a Term’. The idea of this is that every child and teacher in the school will complete the equivalent distance of a marathon (26 miles) over the summer term.
The teachers will be taking the children out to run at various times of each week, so please ensure your child has their PE kit in school all week and not just on their PE days.
Every child will receive certificates upon completion and the first class to complete will get a medal. The first teacher to complete will also receive a medal. There will be a board in the hall tracking everyone’s progress.
This will give the children the opportunity to be motivated, stay fit, work as a team and get active throughout the week whilst having fun at the same time.

What we are doing in PE lessons
Reception classes - Ball Skills
This term the reception classes have been learning new ball skills such as throwing, catching, dribbling, bouncing, aiming and tackling.
On Wednesday 29th March we had our final session this term and the children tried all out all the skills they had learned so far. It was fantastic to see the progress they have all made so far.
We have recently introduced a Sports Committee. Children from Years 5 and 6 were given the opportunity to apply for the role and 12 children were chosen.
The children will be responsible for carrying out surveys and organising an event for the rest of the school in the summer term.
On Wednesday a group two teams of Year 4 children took part in a Tennis Competition at Monks Walk School. We were playing against 6 other teams and out teams came in at 1st and 2nd places overall.
The children all played fantastically well and had a great afternoon. Well done to Daniel, Charlie, Hayden, Sami, Juliet, Catherine and Emily.
A special well done Charlie and Hayden, who were awarded a Special Achievement Certificate for excellent performance.
The children have now qualified for a Competition at Gosling Sports Centre where 2 girls and 2 Boys from our team will go on to represent us and our cluster of schools against the rest of the winning schools in the Welwyn Hatfield Borough.
Our Year 6 A Team took part in the District Football Competition at Monks Walk School on Wednesday 29th March.
The team won 3, drew 1 and lost 1 during the group stages and progressed to the quarter finals where they unfortunately lost on penalties.
Well played boys!
Our High 5's Netball Team Representing Welwyn Hatfield
On Tuesday 21st March our A Team represented the borough of Welwyn Hatfield in the County Hertfordshire Games Finals.
The girls played 6 other teams during the rounds stage and did a fantastic job of winning 4 and losing just one match which saw them qualify for the semi-finals.
They lost out on a place in the finals and went to playoffs for 3rd place. They ended the afternoon in 4th place out of 12 teams. A fantastic result and brilliant boost to the season.
Well done girls!
Year 3 Boccia Tournament at Monks Walk- March 10th
On March 10th a group of year 3 children took part in a Boccia Competition at Moks Walk Secondary School, It was a fantastic event and the children did really well. Two children won medals for best performance on the day.
Well done all those who took part.
On 9th March the A team took part in a high 5's competition at Stanborough School.
This was the first competition as part of our new partnership and the girls did not disappoint. The girls faced 6 other schools in the group rounds and won every single match with only 1 goal being scored against them. As per the rules of High 5's the girls had to change position after every half. Although this meant they were playing out of their usual positions it gave them a great opportunity to try new ones and with great success!
They progressed to the semi-finals and finals winning the competition 5-1 against Applecroft School in the final.
A fantastic day and now on to the Borough on 21st March.
