Sporting Influence Summer Competition Series-Week Two, 20th June 2018

Posted 25/6/2018


In week two of our competition series our joint Federation cricket team took on Highfield school in pairs cricket format. Each pair faced two overs. Tactics played a big part with many runs being scored but also 5 runs being subtracted for each wicket lost. Having won the toss 'Spollifoot' choose to field first and did a great job fielding very well as a team taking a total of five wickets against a strong Highfield batting line up. Following their ten overs it was the turn of the 'Spollifoot' team to bat. Runs came quickly with the opening pairs but careful defence was also needed against some very accurate bowling. With one over remaining scores were level. Although scoring one run form six balls may seem a relatively easy task this had to be done without loosing a wicket also. Having carefully defended a number of balls the wining run was scored by Laura partnered by Andre. A fantastic game and a great result huge well done to the whole team.

Year 6 Visit Iconic London Landmarks!

Posted 14/6/2018

On Tuesday 12th June, pupils in Year Six from both schools had the opportunity to visit our capital city for the day. Following an early start pupils arrived in London and headed straight to the Palace of Westminster. Despite many sections being shrouded in scaffolding it is still an incredibly impressive building from the outside. After checking in at the education centre pupils were given a full tour of the palace including visiting the robing room, the House of Lords and then had the chance to observe parliamentary debate first hand from the viewing gallery above the house of commons.  Following the tour the children took part in a laws and debating workshop to help them understand how laws are proposed, shaped and agreed between the two houses. They had the chance to propose and debate their own bill for which they choose the abolition of homework!

After a short stop for lunch we headed over Westminster Bridge to the Southbank and down to the London Eye where we were treated to a 4D cinema experience including a snow shower before our flight on the Eye. The views from the Eye were spectacular with a chance to see many on London’s most iconic sights.

After a shop walk back over to the Embankment side of the Thames we made our way down Whitehall to possible the most famous front door in the world. Following much planning in the days and weeks before we were lucky enough to head down Downing Street and see for ourselves where the Prime Minster lives and where the cabinet meets each week. Having taken a photo or fifty we headed through Horse guards to St James’ Park and on to see Buckingham Palace.

It was a busy but thoroughly enjoyable day. Many thanks to all the adults who supported this trip both staff, governors and volunteers. A final well done to all the children who coped incredibly well with a long day with lots of walking. I am sure it’s a day that will live long in their memories.
