Just to remind everyone that our PE kit is as follows:
Although the children are currently doing dance this term in their PE lessons, they still need to be provided with a warm jumper (navy/black) and joggers (navy/black). This is due to the children being asked to change before lunch times, meaning that they are spending an hour outside in their kits still. Sports leggings and cotton leggings should not be provided for girls as an alternative to jogging bottoms.
All uniform information can be found on the school’s website and spare, second hand PE kit can be purchased in our reception for 50p.
Today, pupils from Year 5 and 6 participated in the Hoddesdon District School Sports Association Swimming Gala at The John Warner School. Ten schools from the surrounding area took part in a fiercely competitive event. The group of pupils who attended performed with grit and determination and should be extremely proud of themselves, with some finishing in the top three positions in each heat.
A huge thank you to all of the sponsors and contributions for next Friday’s athlete visit. We have managed to raise an amazing total of £2597.70! This will not only help the athletes, but will also contribute to helping Wormley to buy new playground equipment for the children, as well as other sporting equipment for PE lessons and after school clubs.
Thank you again for your generosity and continued support.
Who is the athlete?
Next Friday (29th November) we will be inviting Judo athlete Kimberly Renicks to our school. On the day Kimberly will be hosting a sports circuit, similar to one that she uses for training, for the children to take part in.
Thank you to all those who have sponsored their child. We have already raised a large amount, which will help both the athlete and the school. We have asked that each child is sponsored at least £1 (this enables them to wear sport kit on the day). If your child has already raised money from sponsorship, there is no need to pay the additional £1. There is still some time to send in the form (or £1) tomorrow, if you have forgotten today.
On the day:
All children will need trainers and a water bottle for this event. If they have paid their £1, or raised money through sponsorship, your child is invited to wear sports kit of their choice, house colours or PE Kits.
Today, the children were told an Olympic athlete will be visiting our school on Friday 29th November! We will be revealing who the athlete is next week, but in the mean time we have sent home sponsorship forms to help raise money for the event. On the day, our athlete will lead an assembly, and the children will be taking part in a sports circuit.
We are asking that each child is sponsored at least £1, which will be donated to the athlete’s fund. Any monies raised above this amount will be donated to the school for new sports equipment.
The deadline for the sponsorship is Friday 22nd November!
Thank you for your support.
