March 2016Gym Competition

Fifteen children from Wootton School went to a gym competition last week at Berinsfield Gym with about 100 children from other schools. The children were split into three groups according to age and competed individually, demonstrating their skills on the vault and the floor. Thejpno 256y all did a fantastic job and really enjoyed themselves.

Megan, year 2, said “The infants watched the Juniors practice their performance and after a few minutes the judges watched them. We were all cheering each other. Then the Juniors watched the Infants. After everyone had done their routines, it was time to hear the winner, but we didn’t win.  We all tried hard anyway and had fun”.


March 2016 – on 10th March the High 5 High 5 teamteam went to Thomas Reade School to play in the small schools netball tournament. We played against Marcham B, St. Blaise and Sunningwell in our group. It was really fun and we all played really well. We came third – winning one and losing two games. It was great experience for our team to play in proper matches.
