A big thank you to the parents who came along to support our teams.
Miss Newbold took 8 Year 3/4 children to compete in a gymnastic competition in Grantham on Wednesday. This was the first time our school has entered this competition, so we were unsure of what to expect. The children did well and the A squad came 4th overall. Hopefully we will be able to enter the gymnastics again now that we've dipped our toes in the water!
A fantastic start to the Term for our wonderful Year 6 dancers. We travelled to the South Holland Centre in Spalding to perform our Conflict dance and came first! This provided us with the opportunity to represent the South East region of the county. However this is taking place on Mothering Sunday-a very important date in the church calendar. Unfortunately a number of our children would be unable to make this day, so we have decided not to attend. I am sure you will all agree that our Year 6's have represented the school magnificently this year and have done us all proud in their dancing achievements to date!
We have been taking part in the netball league at The Deepings for the last two weeks. Both A and B teams have only lost one match so far; each to Langtoft A. The final matches will take place this Tuesday, 15th March, where we will face each other too!
Sarah Outen visited school and delivered a truly inspirational Collective Worship about her life as an adventurer. We were all really interested in her stories and hope that one day we too may be able to be as brave as her.

Just before Christmas we had delivery of our new kit, we are looking forward to our next fixture (in January 2015) when we will be able to wear it.
We have also represented the school in a Year 6 Tag Rugby Festival, it was a very cold day, we managed to win two matches, but lost two, which meant we didn't get into the next round. The team played well and with each new game their strategies and skills were improving and they were working well together.
24 children from Years 3-6 went to Deeping Swimming Pool to take part in a local gala. There were great individual performances and the Year 3/4 Medley Relay gained first place.

On 14th January the football team travelled to Gleed Grammar School to compete in a tournament against 15 other schools, Adam Squires has written a match report...
The football tournament started by the team getting on the coach and singing alot of songs to get everyone pumped up for the day ahead! The first team played very well (we managed to beat them) and we won the next two games also. We drew the following two games which meant that we won our group and went throughto the semi-finals. This was one of our hardest matches we have ever played, our opponents sent a through-ball past our defence and the striker tapped it in. We played really well, but Thurlby just knocked us out of the semis and went on to win the overall tournament. Overall we came third and are very proud of our performance and our bronze medals.
Forthcoming fixtures...Cluster Indoor Athletics is on 20th January at Market Deeping, Quick Sticks 3rd February, Local Indoor Athletics 4th February, Netball Tournament 10th February and Cross Country 24th February...we will keep you updated on our results!

12 of our children took part in the area Indoor Athletics Competition today (4/4/15) at Bourne Grammar, we did amazingly well and came 1st for the small schools in our area, I am hoping that this means we should qualify for the County Finals in Grantham in March - I am awaiting confirmation from Agilitas.
On a cold Wednesday 14 children took part in the Spalding Netball Festival run by Agilitas. Both teams played magnificently and managed to make the finals. After a nail-biting 14 minutes, Team Olympia beat Team Ruby and won the overall tournament for Small Schools. To qualify for the County Finals they had to play the runners-up from the Large Schools, Linchfield. After another gruelling 14minutes of brilliant netball Baston won! We are now on our way to compete in Grantham on Wednesday 4th March :)
Update on the athletics...we will compete at The Meres, Grantham on Friday 6th March in the morning, times to be confirmed. Any support would be greatly appreciated for both of the County events.
A report from Tilly on Change For Life Club:
Every Friday at 2.30pm four Inspire Plus Bronze Ambassadors(Harry, Ruby, Katie and me) run a club for 10 Year 3/4's. Our aim is to inspire children to be more active and begin to enjoy sport.

We enjoy running the club as we want the younger children in school to
enjoy sport as much as we do!
