They Shoot...They Score!


This week we had our first fixture of the New Year and we were straight back to our winning ways.

The year 3/4 netball team travelled to Waverton Primary School for their next game in the league, St Martin’s took two teams along, the first winning 1-0, but this was not a reflection of the possession as St Martin’s dominated but just struggled to convert their shots to goals due to the height of the posts. The B team had a similar problem, controlling the possession but struggling to convert in the first half, however in the second half the team managed to put three goals past Waverton, finishing 3-0.

Wgate orienteering

In curriculum PE Watergate have been preparing for their orienteering adventure at Delamere forest. After a few weeks of team building and problem solving the class took on the school course, with 25 controls to find and with all of the children starting and finishing at different points it was a real challenge for the class. Whilst working at their own pace the children crossed paths with others as they looked for the same control. The children loved having the freedom to explore all of the school grounds in search of the controls.

In dance both Newgate and Bridgegate continued to explore stories through dance, this week looking at the story of the Three Little Pigs. The children watched the Northern Ballets interpretation of the story before using it as a stimulus for their own creations. The classes were split into smaller groups and chose a character they would like to portray in the dance, they then worked with their peers to put the dance together before performing it to the rest of their class.
