Virtual Sports Day
As there will be no sports day this year, Miss Scott has created a Sports Day that can be done anywhere.
The idea is that it gives children a focus whilst getting them moving, whether they are at home or at school. It is skills based but hopefully fun too. All effort gets points and there will be a winning house.
You could do these at home in the garden, inside, or at the park.
You could choose you favorite one, or give them all a go to get maximum points.
All scores are points for your house. The scores will be added up and the house with the most points will be the winner this year.
It has been another exciting year of sport at Marlborough St Mary’s Primary School. We have taken part in gymnastics, dance, hockey, netball, athletics, cricket, football, swimming orienteering and golf school festivals giving half of KS2 pupils a chance to represent the school in a sports festival.
Sports News December 2019
On Monday 25th November the whole of our Year 5/6 Hockey Club played in a tournament hosted by Marlborough College. The weather was appalling and everyone was soaked before play even began but it did not dampen anyone’s spirits.
We entered two teams. Our first team, the Christmas Crackers, won two of their three games by 10 – 0. They learned how to apply their hockey skills to their best advantage in each game and demonstrated excellent teamwork.
Our next team, The Christmas Puddings, worked really hard at utilising the space on the College astroturf and gained valuable experience for our next tournament in February.
On Friday 15th November we played a friendly match against Preshute which gave us some valuable practise of match play.
The Netball Tournament booked for Wednesday 27th November was unfortunately postponed due to high winds and rain. It will be rescheduled for Term 3.
We are currently working on Clubs for Term 3 so please look out for letters to reserve a space.
