Mini Athletics at Skyswood
A team of KS2 runners took part in a mini athletics event at Skyswood School on Friday.
 
The event was an ideal opportunity for our runners to practice for the forthcoming District Sports taking place at Westminster Lodge during week beginning 17th June.  The team competed in sprint races, relays and the 600 metres against teams from Skyswood and Maple.  There were some excellent performances from the Prae Wood athletes and we hope that the experience has helped to settle their nerves and sharpen their competitiveness for the main event.
 
It was also an opportunity to test out our fabulous new athletics vests funded by the PWSA.  The team certainly looked the part; thank you!

School Games Girls' Cricket
A team of Year 5 girls took part in the Level 2 School Games cricket competition last week.
 
The competition, held at Highfield Park, was unfortunately a smaller event than planned due to the original date being postponed, however the team still had plenty of matches to play in the revised round robin format.
 
For most of the girls, this was their first experience of playing a cricket match and they soon got into the swing of the Dynamos format scoring off of bowled balls and also taking advantage of the tee shot when a wide or no ball was called.  The girls were all determined to bowl overarm and some excellent improvements in their bowling abilities was evident since they first started to practice in their PE lessons last half term.  
 
Over the course of the day, the girls won one match and lost the rest.  The scores were closer on pitch 3 which had a larger boundary, however the smaller boundary on pitch 4 allowed some of the stronger teams, who were all Year 6s, to score some impressive totals which Prae Wood weren't able to match.  Nevertheless, the girls should be proud of how far they have come, ably led by captain, Freya, our only teammate who plays cricket outside of school.

Tag Rugby Festival
A year 3 and a year 4 team took part in a tag rugby festival hosted by Saracens RFC at Harpenden RFC last week.
 
Lots of our players attend our after school tag rugby club and it was a great opportunity for these players to put their skills to the test against other schools.  For others, their only experience of tag rugby has been through school PE, however they fitted into their teams well and made valuable contributions with their tagging, passing and try scoring.  With at least 8 matches for each team, the players were able to use the playing time to improve on their performances, requiring little help from the adults to organise themselves and consider what they needed to change to play better.
 
Well done to everyone involved especially for demonstrating a strong competitive spirit but also excellent support for your teammates.

Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside...

Year 2 spent the day in Southend to learn about our topic 'The Seaside'. The children walked along the beach collecting shells, made a tally of the different buildings and had a wonderful view of the sea on the land train along Southend Pier.

Year 5 had an interesting day at Kew Gardens on Monday, exploring different glass houses to support our learning on Biomes. We began at the Treetop walk to give us an idea of what it feels like to be in the canopy of a forest. Next, we entered the Temperate House before moving to the Palm House where we could see trees and plants from across the world. Finally, we spent time in the Princess of Wales Conservatory which was the most humid climate. This was full of wonderful ferns, orchids but also a desert biome. Thank you to our parents who kindly came along to help.
