National School Sports Week 2019
Wow another busy and extremely active week this week and one that has been a lot of fun!
We have had different activities going on every day of the week and the children have had some new experiences as well as some Riverside favourites.
Monday saw the children starting off their Run a mile in the morning to start the day and Year 4 had an afternoon of fun playing Basketball and Football against Year 4's
Tuesday started off with the Run a mile but also Sunny our resident Zumba instructor delivered sessions to the whole school throughout the day, the children even learnt a Zumba routine for their warm up to the School Games Day on Wednesday, they should all be able to do Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes without any problems whatsoever, they could even teach you I am sure!!
The staff played our Year 5/6 Netball team and I have to say it was a really close game!!! The final score was 6-5 to the staff but I have to say that the school Netball team are really a tough team to beat, they really did not make it easy for us, there were some great saves from Mehnaz and Tasmiah!!
Wednesday saw the School Games day where children started off with a Zumba warm up and then a 11 stations on different skills, we then had a family picnic on the field and then after lunch we had the all important races where a lot of our children achieved success and we even saw parents showing resilience as well as our lovely children. The final winners for 2019 were Falcons for the second year but I have to say all the scores were pretty close but it was such a lovely atmosphere on the field at lunchtime and we even had time to do some longer races due to the addition of our new track.
Thursday the children will Run a mile to start the day off and sees the staff playing Year 5 and 6 on the field at lunchtime, along with the Netball and Football teams having a rewards treat of the Go Karts at Riverside and then St Lukes will be playing against the Year 6'sin the afternoon in Netball, Football and Rounders......
Friday the children will experience the Run a mile and then the whole school will be experiencing Archery at different times throughout the day, it should be fun, but don't worry, I shall keep you updated....
