Yet again the sun shone and the whole school took part in our sports day.
In the morning the children competed in eight activities: Targets, obstacle, dressing up race, high-jump, sack race, javelins, egg and spoon; and standing long jump. Cheered on by the parents, the atmosphere was great and the effort by the children outstanding on a hot, humid morning. After two hours of frantic activity, the ‘Blues’ emerged as worthy winners.
In the afternoon, we took part in the inter-class athletics ac children sprinted and skipped to win a place at Area sports. All children again took part and there were some excellent performances and no shortage of determination by all!
We can now look forward to Area sports at Trimley on 1st July.
We sent 12 children to compete in this 10-a-side tournament and after four matches in which e won three and drew one, we won! The firlding was good and there was some excellent batting. Very well done to the team.
On a sunny afternoon, eleven girls and boys from Year 6 went to Grange for the annual inter-schools ‘rounders’ competition. Through four hard fought matches, the team batted and fielded well, improving as the games progressed. After three wins and a draw, we emerged as winners! Congratulations to the team.
At Causton we have been listening to and appraising different pieces of music. We have discussed how these pieces of music make us feel and what they make us think of. In our classes we have completed some writing based on the music we listened to.
Eight boys and girls from Year 6 and 5 travelled to Felixstowe cricket club to compete against four other schools. They played very well, winning two and then losing two games by very narrow margins to finish third. Once again, the sportsmanship of the children was very evident as they shook and always thanked the umpires.
