Our first Infant Agility competition on Thursday 2nd February was a great success! The children who took part really enjoyed it, both for taking part and the competitive element. They had practised and prepared for all sorts of events, including long jump and javelin. Although we did not place, the children worked very hard from 4pm-6pm with other local schools. We have put together a slide show of some of the fun we had at the event:

Rapid Fire Cricket Competition
On Thursday 24th January, Mr Head and Mr Greenfield took a team of 10 children from Years 1 and 2 to take part in a local cricket competition. Out of 16 schools, Willesborough Infant School finished in 4th position, just losing out in the semi-final by 1 run. It was the first time that the school have played rapid fire cricket so the children did amazingly well as a team and had a lot of fun playing this new sport - we are very proud of them. A big thank you to all parents who helped with transport and supported the team throughout the afternoon, it is really appreciated. Thank you to Mr Greenfield and Mr Head for running the after school club and giving the children their first opportunity to compete against other schools.
During term one, Year one pupils enjoyed some Zumba sessions in their PE lessons. Zumba is a fitness programme, designed specifically for children, incorporating various types of exercises and dance moves.
As well as the physical benefits of exercise, Zumba Kids promote other key elements such as group work, confidence building, self-esteem, memory, creativity, co-ordination and balance, social skills and leadership.
Year 1 are enjoying keeping active with our Zumba sessions! To warm our bodies up we have been busy playing a range of games that incorporate animal movements and sounds. We then move on to completing an energetic Zumba routine that helps to develop our movement and co-ordination skills. It is so much fun!
Year 1 have been boogieing away with Nikki this term in their P.E. sessions. They have been busy learning some new, complex dance routines as a group to the likes of Elton John, Taylor Swift and their personal favourite - George Ezra. They found it quite tricky to begin with but over the weeks have really developed their rhythm and control; now, nothing can stop them dancing away! Have the children managed to show you their dance moves at home?
