Well done to our Year 3 and 4 New Age Kurling teams, who took part in the competition at Mountbatten School last Friday. Our A and B teams both worked hard to roll their stones as close to the target at possible to try and defeat their opponents.
After several games against other schools, the Wellow team results were as follows:
‘A’ league girls – 2nd place
‘A’ league boys – 7th place
‘B’ league girls – 5th place
‘B’ league boys – 3rd place
The overall result for Wellow School in the competition was 3rd place! Fantastic results from our teams. Congratulations to all of you!
A huge congratulations to Eloise in Year 4, who competed in the Great Britain National Taekwondo Championships last weekend, and won gold! An amazing achievement; Eloise is national champion for her age and weight category. Well done Eloise!
Following on from the introduction of the Daily Mile last year, Wellow has now signed up for the Golden Mile. The children will still run/ walk for about 10 minutes each session. They will count their laps and then this will be added to their class section (password protected) on the Golden Mile website. Their progress will then be tracked by their teacher and the children will receive certificates for reaching certain milestones throughout the year e.g 10 miles.
We found that last year, the children felt fitter and more focussed in lessons after doing this run/ walk regularly. We hope that the new Golden Mile format will help to motivate and encourage them, as well as rewarding their achievements.
Happy running and walking everyone!
Some of our Key Stage 2 classes took part in the free exercise videos, run by Joe Wicks on YouTube last week. The children had good fun whilst dong their high intensity interval training (HIIT).
This Monday evening saw the first cross-country competition of the school year. It was held at Mountbatten School and attended by children from the other Romsey schools.
We were so proud to see the Wellow children from years 1 to 6 take part. The courses varied in length, depending on the age group. We were impressed with how well the children paced themselves and for their resilience and determination.
All the children were fantastic and should be proud of their achievements. Their scores will contribute to the overall score for their age group and the school.
The following children placed within the top 15:
Year 1/2 girls: Eadie 2nd, Ivy 10th
Year 1/2 boys: Joel 6th
Year 3/4 girls: Millie 4th, Kaelani 5th, Joey 12th, Elsa 13th
Year 3/4 boys: Tom 1st, William 3rd, Louie 4th, Darren 9th, Oscar 10th, Ollie 15th
Year 5/6 girls: Eve 1st, Eleanor 2nd, Esme 5th, Ariana 13th
Year 5/6 boys: Louie 11th
Excellent results! Well done to everyone who took part!
Welcome back to a new school year of sport! Last year the children did themselves proud, taking part in a wide range of sporting activities, both within school and extra curricular.
Wellow School once again received the Silver School Games Mark for our sport and PE during 2016-17. This is a fantastic achievement and all the children played their part in achieving this.
The final results for the all the competitions between the Romsey schools for 2016-17 are as follows:
Key Stage 1: 3rd place overall out of 6 schools taking part
key Stage 2: 3rd place overall out of 9 schools taking part
Well done everyone!
