Sports Fortnight 2017
Wow! What a fantastic fortnight of sports we have had. We've learnt new skills and tried new sports; we've competed against our class mates, and other year groups; we've used teamwork to challenge our opponents, and created a whole school performance. Violet Class (Year 6) have learned how to be sports leaders, so they could run the KS1 competition.
KS2 athletics finals
What fantastic performances! The finals began with the sprint races; followed by distance; then hurdles; and finished off with the relay. Each finalist demonstrated determination, athleticism and sportsmanship in their event. Everyone should be extremely proud of their efforts!
Thank you to the athletes' parents and guardians for your support in this event.
Tag Rugby Oct 2017
This year's tag rugby competition was hosted by The Mount; what a treat it was for the spectators!
Every player on the 10-person squad showed skill, enthusiasm and a desire to win. It was a real team effort with everyone making fantastic tackles and preventing the opposition from scoring. But The Mount didn't stop at defending, they also scored plenty of tries - resulting in four wins and a draw.
Top scorers: Greyson and Issac
