Honiton Athletics and Other Sporting Activities

Recently, the children of Class 2 have attended a range of sports events arranged by the Honiton Learning Community. The Year 5 and Year 6 children attended an Athletics event, one of the Year 3 children attended a co-ordination event, the Year 3 and 4 children took part in a gymnastics festival and the Year 5 and 6 children also attended a Football event. The children have enjoyed the opportunity to take part in these competitions. While, as a a small school, it can be difficult for our teams to be successful in such events, an advantage of our small size is that all our children have the opportunity to take part – which they have done with great enthusiasm!

In other news, one of our Year 5 pupils has once again represented the school at a series of show-jumping events at Bicton Arena. Competing against secondary school pupils, she has placed seventh at more than one event (out of more than 30 competitors) and will advance to the national competition in May in at least one of those events. We are really proud of her fantastic achievements!
