Class 11 PE Enrichment Day
Class 11 enjoyed a great morning of archery and den building. The children spent half of the morning practising their archery skills. Considering that this was the first time the children have used the bows and arrows, they did brilliantly. Many bulls eyes were hit and there were clearly some Robin Hoods and Maid Marions in the making! For the other half of the morning, we worked in small groups to use the equipment given to make a den large enough for the whole group. Impressively, every group achieved this! The children behaved impeccably all morning. Their resilience, teamwork and problem solving was fantastic. It really was a thoroughly enjoyable morning. Well done, Class 11!
