Summer Term 2018
Sports Day took an eventful turn this year with the onset of torrential rain on the morning of the event! The earlier heatwave had led us to decide to have Sports Day in the morning, instead of the afternoon, as originally planned. As luck would have it the rain cleared up leaving us with a beautiful morning. The children then had a nail-biting morning of fun and excitement as they took part in races and cheered on their friends and family. A huge 'Congratulations' to all of the children and their grown ups who took part, with a special mention to Yellow House who were the overall winners. We'd also like to extend the 'Thank You' to the PTFA who, once again, were invaluable in their support.
Another action packed Summer of sporting events took place over the Summer Term. Many of the children had the opportunity to take part in inter-school tournaments - with football and netball being the main focus. Lots of fun (and success!) was had by all who took part.

A super day with our rugby players truly excelling themselves. The team had a fabulous morning where they played magnificently. This resulted in the team being placed in the higher group for the afternoon matches. Here they performed fabulously and were placed in the top third of the teams entered.

Sport Relief Day.
What an exciting day we had in school today. The morning was taken up with the annual Ewyas Harold Great British Bake Off which culminated in a cake sale at playtime. The afternoon saw a lively and exciting carousel of events to burn off some energy! Mrs Colwell encouraged the children to explore their spiritual side with some yoga, Mrs Smith exhausted the children with some very high impact dance moves, Miss Wolfe Murray was in charge of the outdoor circuits whilst Mrs Gething rounded the afternoon off with a little Zumba. All of the children took part with huge enthusiasm and had a fabulous day. Well done everybody!

The Year 5/6 Girls Football Team had a fabulous afternoon at The Ross Football Tournament this afternoon.
All of the girls have to be praised for their grit and determination during soggy, wet and cold conditions.
Our fledgling team really blossomed, they showed great marking skills and super game awareness.
Unfortunately, this afternoon they were outclassed by some of the other teams, but look forward to honing their skills in the coming weeks.
Well done girls, you have lots to be proud of!
