This article arrived just after the deadline for the April issue and couldn’t be included but, happily, we can bring it to you online.
Our Play Leaders have been busy organising and leading different physical activities at playtime. Lots of children have taken part in the activities and our playtimes have been a lot of fun.
The whole school took part in a tennis taster day led by Sam and Chris from Bassline Tennis. Each year group had a lesson with the coaches and it was enjoyed by all!
In addition, many children have been involved in sporting festivals and competitions. Some Y5/6 children took part in a Tag Rugby Mega Festival at Bishop Grosseteste University (in conjunction with both the University and Lincoln Rugby Football Club) alongside over 350 children from schools around Lincolnshire. They took part in many rugby themed challenges during the morning, then they applied the skills they had developed in the morning within matches during the afternoon. The Spirit of the Games values of honesty, determination, team work, self-belief, passion and respect were shown by all our pupils and we were very proud of them.
Our Y5/6 boys have also participated in a local football tournament where they displayed lots of enthusiasm and good sportsmanship.
Marathon Monday has continued. So far we have completed over 150 miles!
The whole school, together with parents and grandparents, ran “The Potterhanworth Mile” in aid of Sport Relief. They dressed in brightly coloured sports kit and walked, jogged, skipped or ran 10 laps around the school field to complete the distance. The laps were added to our Marathon Monday total. Together, our families raised over £120 for this very worthy cause.
Cookery Club children are thoroughly enjoying their sessions with Good Lookin Cookin. So far they have made focaccia with a herby dipping sauce, and pannetone bread & butter pudding. The delicious smells wafting around school at the end of the day are extremely tempting!
Reception children continue to enjoy their forest school sessions. They are gaining so much from this invaluable outdoor learning. We cannot thank the Ott family enough for allowing us to use their land for these activities.
Lincoln Music and Drama Festival
We are very proud of our children’s results in this annual competition: Choir (1st place); Upper Key Stage 2 Choral Speaking (2nd place); Lower Key Stage 2 Choral Speaking (3rd place). Well done everyone!
