Some bowling action from #TeamEdwalton this morning working with Chloe from Notts Cricket.
What a busy week of sport for Team Edwalton as each year group went head to head to compete in their separate sports days with seven different events taking place across our ‘Well-being Week’. What an excellent display of talent as the children were challenged across all the athletic disciplines of runs, jumps, hurdles and throws to finish with an exciting 200m relay race. Well done to all the children for their fantastic behaviour and conduct. The encouragement they showed to one another was wonderful to see. Results were as follows with some very close finishes.

Thanks to Tom Darby from the Flying High Trust for organising the Trust Athletics event on Friday 11th June. Team Edwalton really enjoyed the event. Huge congratulations go to our Year 2 team, who were announced winners of their age group!
Well done to Bethany and Sam who were nominated for the values award for their excellent effort and sportsmanship all round. Thanks also to the children in Year 6 who helped to run the event with Mrs Kang.
Congratulations to Team Edwalton! Another trophy in the bank. The mixed Year 6 cricket team represented the school fantastically, coming out as overall winners!
Join Mrs Kang for our live daily workout (9am) and daily PE lesson (posted each day on School Story during the lockdown). Wellbeing counts!
Congratulations to all the children nominated to be their new class sports leaders. Our sports leaders have a very important job to do in helping to do helping to organise PE lesson activities and promote other physical activity initiatives within their classes, year groups and whole school. They make wonderful role models to their peers. Being a sports leader can help the children to develop self-confidence and leadership qualities that they can go on to use in all sorts of environments. We hope they will enjoy their new roles.

Fitness club is every Monday at 3.30pm via zoom and lasts 40 minutes. Children can register to join the class and will then be sent the zoom meeting schedule in class dojo. Finley and Aiden have written about why they like it:
I absolutely love doing PE with Mrs Kang in school on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I really enjoy Mrs Kang's after-school fitness club on Mondays. We do it on zoom and keep fit to music. It is so much fun. It makes me feel fresh and energetic. (Finley)
When I first heard about Mrs Kang’s fitness club, I was excited, although it felt weird because it was going to be on Zoom. I had never trained without a group so I was feeling anxious, although I shouldn’t have worried….it was great fun! Every Monday, after school, I get my mat out and some water and my Mummy sets up my laptop. Mrs Kang is a great trainer. We start with a warm up so you don’t pull muscles. Then we do various activities like push ups. Next, we do the whole thing again. There is funky, energetic music playing in the background. Mrs Kang encourages us by doing it with us and cheering us on. Finally, we do a cool down, including stretches and pulls. After all that, I feel tired but energised. I have so much fun! Everyone should join Mrs Kang’s fitness club to get fit! (Aiden)
