Tag Rugby Festival
Miss Lee accompanied a small group of children from Foxes to Wallop school to learn all about Tag Rugby ready for our competition later in the year.
The children really enjoyed the session and picked up lots of new and exciting skills.
Gymnastics Festival- KS1
This week 8 KS1 children attended the Gymnastic Festival at Test Valley School.
The children enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities, including gymnastics with hoops and ribbons, creating different jumps and making shapes. They also had been practising a routine to perform at the festival which was judged. I was very proud of the team and I know that everyone we took enjoyed the opportunity to do something different.
Gymnastics CPD for Cluster Staff
On Monday 6th January we held a cluster staff training session which was run by Cathy Devereux from Lions in the Community. Mrs Macey, Miss Lee, Miss Ayers, Miss Morris and Mrs Hudgell took part in this fantastic chance to learn about the progression of skills from EYFS through to Year 6. We were also joined by teacher from Wherwell and West Tytherly. Mrs Devereux went through lots of exciting games, important techniques and gave us some fantastic ideas. We look forward to sharing this with you in your next gymnastics unit!
Cluster Football Tournament- WINNERS!
On Tuesday 3rd December we took a group of year 5/6 children (Jack, Jake, Tommy, George, Henry A, Henry P, Camilla and Esmay) to a cluster completion against 6 other teams. Our first match was against Lockerly and we beat them 1-0, Jake scored! The next match was Wherwell which we were very nervous about. We drew 1-1. We next played the hosts Wallop again we drew 0-0. Next it was a break where we enjoyed warm hot chocolate (Thank you Mrs Green!) and chocolate rolls (Thank you Jack). We had a small pep talk from Miss Morris as we realised we needed to dig deep to win! The team came back strong and beat West Tytherly 7-0. It was the highest score of the tournament! Finally we played King Somborne and beat them 4-0. We were all very excited and exhausted! Mrs Devereux announced the scores and we had won! We all got gold medals which was great! Thank you Lions in the Community! Written by Jack, Jake and Tommy
New age Kurling cluster competition
On Monday 11th November Broughton took 4 children from year 3/4 to Test Valley Secondary school for a competition. Our first match was against Lockerly who had very snazzy hoodies! At first we were very nervous because we didn't know how good they were, but as soon as we started playing our nerves soon went. Our second match was against Wherwell. It was a very close round! We played against 6 schools all together. All the schools gathered together to announce first, second and third place. The bottom three got a certificate and the top 3 got medals. Wherwell came third (we thought they were going to win). In second place was Stockbridge, they played really well and first place was...... Broughton! All of the team got a gold medal with Kurling equipment on. We were very proud to come home with a gold medal!!
New Age Kurling
A new and exciting set of Kurling equipment has arrived at school this week! This new sport has been enjoyed by lots of children through our New Age Kurling club on a Tuesday evening and in golden time.
Kurling is a form of the original curling, but adapted so that it can be played indoors on any smooth, flat surface.
