Wake & Shake

This morning’s Wake and Shake with Miss Taylor

An afternoon of PE

We were all out enjoying the sunshine yesterday afternoon in our most recent PE lesson.

Kestrels: working on their tennis skills, after many weeks spent working with sports coach Mr Marsland.

Owls: Practising their hurdling in preparation for sports day later in the year.

Going for Gold again!

A huge well done to the children who represented our school at the annual archery competition this year. With only eight in our team, they scored very similarly to other teams with 9 archers.

After many gold targets hit, the team were, and rightly so, incredibly proud of themselves. Well done to everyone involved.

A particular well done to George and Charlie who were named the ‘star pair’ by their archery coach.

Randwick presents Harry Potter at the Cheltenham Town Hall

A huge congratulations to the nine children that performed so confidently at the Cheltenham Dance Festival last week. They were, as always, a credit to our school. So focused, passionate and determined to pull off a confident performance that wowed an audience of 700+

The dance was based on Sparrowhawks class theme from the Autumn term and much of it was choreographed by the children themselves. We are incredibly proud of you. Well done to everyone involved.

A huge thanks also to the parents for supporting them and Mrs Clarke for volunteering her time to work with and transport children.

Success against Sheepscombe

Well done to our football team who beat Sheepscombe 4-1 this evening at home. A great team effort and a very well deserved win!

Netball at Wycliffe

Well done to the Randwick super stars who attended the Stroud netball festival this week at Wycliffe. We enjoyed the use of the great facilities and getting to know players from other schools, a special thanks must go to the children at Hopelands who helped us out with numbers when we were short of players.

The girls enjoyed lots of skills and drills before having plenty of game time where they learnt many of the 7 a side rules. Here we are in action.

A well deserved win!

Having put in lots of training after our defeat to Gastrells a couple of weeks ago we were keen for a re-match. Both schools made slight changes to their teams with but lots of similar faces returning to play each other for a second time. After only a few minutes into the game it became evident that our hard work had paid off, we were moving the ball down the court exceptionally and getting into some great spaces. This allowed up to go 2-0 up after the first quarter. The children’s hard work continued throughout and the final score was 8-3 to Randwick.

Some fantastic team work once again, you should all be very proud!

Kestrels visit Forest Green Rovers

As part of their Fit2Last programme, Forest Green Rovers hosted a fabulous day for our year 2, 3 & 4 class earlier this month. The day involved the children recieving football coaching led by the FGR players, an opportunity for a question and answer session with the players and an Ecotrail tour of the stadium. The children had a fantastic day and came back buzzing with enthusiasm.

Since this trip we have had requests for more football at lunch times and more opportunity to work on developing football skills within our PE sessions. Certainly a success!

The story so far…

In our dance unit, Sparrowhawks have been re-creating the story of Harry Potter. From leaving the Hogwarts Express, entering Hogwarts, sitting in Defence Against the Dark Arts class to casting spells. We are only half way through our unit and by the end hope to have an action packed dance to share pupils, parents and carers.

It’s been lots of fun so far but there is still so much more to be had. After all, we haven’t even started flying lessons yet!

Y5/6 Netball club

After our defeat a couple of weeks ago, we are now training hard for a re-match against Gastrells this week. In club we have been working on finding space, throwing into space and moving the ball down the court.
