On the last Friday of term a team of 8 children entered the St Bede's gymnastic competition. This is run by the South Bristol Gymnastic group with over 200 pupils entering. The Brentry team were all fantastic. They all had to perform a routine individually to the judges and complete a vault. We placed 5th in the year 3/4 team and 4th in the year 5/6 team. I couldn't be prouder of them, great job girls!
The Year 5/6 football team have been fantastic this term with winning all games bar one! They have been working well as a team and are doing the whole school proud, especially their coach Mr Clarke.
The Rugby team played in a tournament at St Bedes last week. Miss Garland said they played brilliantly and really worked hard as a team. They had 3 matches in total. The won one, drew one and lost one. We think they did Brentry proud. Great job guys.
It has been lovely to welcome Charlie Thompson back into school this week. For those of you who remember Charlie he used to provide our School with PPA cover to teach PE. He was always a very popular member of staff with both the adults and children, it is great to have him back! Charlie is back this term to teach cricket to years 5, 4 and 3. From these classes he will be selecting children to train up for a cricket team. Next term Year 6 and Year 3 will get an opportunity to try cricket.
Some of Ks1 and Reception have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with a football scout at lunchtimes. This week the children loved it and worked really hard to show off everything they could do. Keep up the hard work Brentry!
Jack Rutter the Paralympian visited us for an express workout session! We were all worn out by the end but loved the challenge. Jack gave us an inspirational speech which was extremely encouraging. The children were amazed at his story and it was lovely to hear them talking about the goals they have for themselves for the future. Thank you to everyone for helping us collect donations for the event. Half of the money will go towards Jack's future training and development and half will come back to the school for sport equipment. In total we collected am amazing £1,649.00 Wow! Thank you to everyone for your amazing donations.
Years 1-6 are taking part in a block of Yoga throughout the year. We have learnt how to control our breathing and zen out! Ask your child if they have learnt any new moves they can teach you!
