As a Federation we are taking part in the Hampshire Schools Games Week – Hampshire Schools Games Week Flyer

On Friday 25th June, Shalfleet Primary will be running a 12 hours’ sports event from 8:30am – 8:30pm. In order to keep the sports continuing for 12 hours, we would like key stage 2 children to stay after school. A letter regarding this will be sent home shortly.
All children will need to wear sports mufti on this day with a suggested donation of £1.
During the day there will be ice lollies on sale & children are requested to bring in £1 to purchase these.

We will update you with photos of the event – watch this space!

This week was national school football week so across the federation all the children took part in some football related activities. It’s a rare treat to have football in PE, and all the children, both the keen footballers and otherwise enjoyed their challenges.

Despite it being a very short half term, it was very busy before Easter. The children took part in a virtual dodgeball competition, as both a house competition (at Shalfleet) and an island wide competition. All the children did a great job, having to run out and back to a cone for 69 seconds as many times as possible, and then try and knock over the same cone with a dodgeball in the same time frame. The most successful team islandwide was the year 3 team from Yarmouth, mixing children from both sites, who came an amazing 3rd place out of the whole island! Well done. In the house competition at Shalfleet Woodpeckers pipped Kingfishers by a single point to record the best score, but with only 13 points separating all the teams it was very close. 
Watch out for changes as we look to build our house group identity across the federation and create even more intra house events.

Climbing Festival

On Friday the 13th Shalfleet primary entered the West Wight Sports and Community Centre and took part in the Gear Up climbing festival. The team was missing a climber and we realized 5 minutes before the bus left to take them there!!! Luckily we had a replacement. There were 3 different events that we took part in these against Newchurch.

The first one we did was we had to climb up the wall as far as we could and tap numbers- as we climbed up the numbers got higher; and the higher we were the more points we got! The second one we did was the speed climb we had a maximum of 2 minutes to get to the top. Some of the times were impressive. Not all of us got to the top on the first two events, however that doesn’t matter because at the start they told us the most important rule was be safe and have fun. The third one was we had to climb along the wall and touch the numbers 1-10 with our head and not put our feet on the ground, we had a maximum of 3 minutes to do this in. A few of us did this- Issy and Laura did it in under 2 minutes. Over all I think both year 5 and 6 did well.

The year 6 team consisted of: Moses, Mia, Asami, Bertie, Rosie and Laura.

The year 5 team consisted of: Jasmine, Alfie, Connie, Issy, Toby and Joe.

With our first two in to bat, Bertie and Max, our players hit some good shots and started off well, however Arreton played exceptionally well and bowled us some tricky fast balls! We lost our first game but held our heads up high.
Our next game was against Newport. Our Captain decided the pairings again and off we went. Again we struck some good shots, our bowling picked up and we scored well, but we were narrowly beaten by Newport!

Quad Kids

On Friday Shalfleet took a team to the island Quad Kids athletics event. Having taken part in the Cowes version of the competition, the children knew what to expect and were hopeful of doing well. As before the children all had to run 400m and sprint 50m, as well as complete a standing long jump and a vortex throw. The team gave their all against some very tough opponents and at the end had a nervous wait to hear the results. As the results came in Shalfleet wasn’t called until the final 3, we had got a medal, and amazingly it turned out to be a gold one! A great reward for a fantastic effort by all of our team.
