We are very proud of our commitment to sports, health and competition. Through 2 hours of P.E. teaching a week children learn a range of different personal skills, game rules and strategies which are applied to a range of team games, athletics and dance. All children enjoy the opportunity to visit local secondary schools for swimming lessons and gymnastics. As well as P.E. lessons children also make great use of our rural surroundings by exploring andIMG_1886 maintaining our school environment during forest school.

Sports activities are also very well attended and enjoyed after school. Each term a range of different sports are offered to all ages; from team ball games to specialist skills such as circus skills and archery!

Throughout the year every child represents our school in sporting competition against our GloWMATCH cluster friends. We enter county trial competitions and are committed to training for and competing in Gloucester league football and netball tournaments.

Please enjoy celebrating our commitment to training and all sporting achievements by keeping up to date with our blog.

GPJ 2018

On Wednesday 4th July, year 6 participated in the GPJ Sports event at Newent, and competed excellently. The children had to work as a team in a range of activities, including long jump, kwik cricket and end ball. Mrs Curtis was very proud of you all returning to school with a silver medal and scoring second place! What an excellent achievement!

Thank you to Ollie and Harry for standing in last minute to make the teams equal!

Dean Field Study Centre 29th June – 1st July

This years residential for years 4, 5 and 6 was a very fun and exciting one, when we visited the Dean Field Study Centre in Parkend.

After all arriving and having our first evening meal on Friday, we then went out for our birds of prey display. Unfortunately it was too hot to fly the birds as they would just go and hide in the shade, however we were still able to meet many of them, including an eagle owl, hawk and an 8 week old baby barn owl (who was very cute). Not only this, we got to explore through owl poo to see what they had eaten (yuck!). We all had a chance at holding the birds and this was a very fascinating experience.

On Saturday and Sunday we were split into our 3 groups to go off and complete a range of activities. One of the activities was problem solving, where we had to apply a lot of skills, but mostly team work, to complete a range of very tricky challenges.

The zip wire, climbing wall and leap of faith was when all of us displayed huge amounts of courage and we all had a go at everything, conquering many fears. After huge amounts of perseverance and determination, we had great fun and some us even became so brave we could hang upside down from the trapeze bar!

Caving was a very popular, but very nerve-racking experience (particularly for Miss Bramley); we spent two hours underground sliding and climbing our way through very tight spaces and getting very dirty. We had the most incredible experience doing this and Miss Bramley was so proud of everyone going underground, it was very dark and very scary!

Unfortunately we don’t have any pictures of caving or tunnelling for you as it was too dark and dangerous to carry things with us, however we can you lots about it at home!

On our last night we did some orienteering up in the woods, where we worked in partners to find our way around a map and stamp off locations. Well done to the winning duo Josh and Blake! Once we got back we celebrated our last evening with a movie night and ate way too many sweets. We ended up going to bed very late, and it is fair to say some us were that tired we missed half of the film and had to escorted back to bed!

Miss Bramley would like to thank all of the children to their super enthusiasm and excellent behaviour over the weekend, it was really was a pleasure to take you all away.

Thank you to all of the parents for your drop offs and collections, and for making sure all of the children had everything with them they needed.

A massive thank you also to Miss Dawson and Brad for giving up their weekend to come with us, we wouldn’t have been able to go without you being prepared to give up your time, it really is appreciated!

 

Miss Bramley hopes all of the children had a fantastic time and all took some great memories away with them!

Bellboating Regatta

On Thursday 28th June, years 5 and 6 attended the regatta at Tewkesbury Sailing Club. We had an absolutely brilliant time and worked really well as a team.

We displayed many of values, including perseverance, courage and responsibility.

 

Thank you so much to all of the parents that came and helped us, and to Mrs Owen for taking us!

 

Netball Festival

On the 22nd June, the girls from years 5 and 6 participated in the Netball Festball at Denmark Road.

The girls showed fantastic skill and team work throughout the day, with A team and B team showing excellent sportsmanship and support to each other throughout the whole tournament.

Despite the extremely hot weather, we played brilliantly well, reaching the very close finals, and what a long way Huntley Netball team has come this year! We also had players who have never played before even scoring goals . . . It was definitely a day to remember!

Well done girls, Miss Bramley could not have been prouder of you, you were a superb representation of Huntley Primary School!

Thank you to all of the parent drivers who made the day possible to go ahead!

GloWMATCH Olympics

A great day was enjoyed by all at Westbury today where we joined with our GloWMATCH friends to take part in lots of sports activities and games. Split into Key Stages we were able to meet the friends we have made in competitions during the year! We used all of our sports skills in a carousel of activities including; throwing, running, jumping, balancing and much more! We also competed against other teams in an end-ball tournament.

Thank you to Mr Carpenter for the great photographs.
