Our Year 5 Netball team had the opportunity to take part in the Bee festival at Bristol Grammar School. The girls thrived in the friendly environment meaning they we able to focus on the skills within a competitive game. We look forward to building our team this year.
Year 5 and 6 were treated to an afternoon of action-packed fun involving lasers. Everyone was trying their hardest to beat their previous 50m sprinting times, as they were timed as accurately as Olympic sprinters with the use of laser timings.
The children also tried their hand at laser shooting towards a target. The afternoon finished by combing both skills in a team relay.
The children had a great time and are looking forward to further sporting opportunities during the coming year!
