Today 32 Year 1 children from St Joseph's walked their way down to The King Alfred School in the glorious sunshine for an exciting morning of sporting activity. On arrival we met with our federated school Corpus Christi and nearby local school Churchfield who had also brought along all of their Year 1 children to participate in a range of athletic events run by the young leaders from the secondary school. With a pirate theme, the different events on offer were aimed at developing fundamental skills such as running, jumping, balancing, throwing etc. and the children were mixed into groups so that they were given the opportunity to work with children from other schools. The morning was just brilliant and all the children seemed to really enjoy the experience (although the walk back to school with so many tired legs was a little challenging). Behaviour was excellent as always and it was great to see so many smiling faces. I look forward to the Reception and Year 2 events which will be running later in the summer term.
Photos of the morning will follow later this week.
