Years 3 - 6 each received a visit from Shepway Sports Trust to develop their speed stacking skills. They had to learn different methods and stacking combinations, which tested their agility and coordination skills - not an easy task!
Year 4 even tried to make the tallest tower, and then had to bring it down in to 3 piles as quickly as possible.
A great start to the 2017/18 competitions!
Our Y3/4 A team took 2nd place overall after running a 1000m race, with each member of the team placing very well in the rankings. Well done to Oscar who took 1st place, Gemma who took 2nd, Joel who took 2nd and Bobby who took 3rd in the individual places!
Over the last two weeks we have taken three teams to the Marsh Academy and Three Hill Sports Park to take part in the Shepway Netball Qualifiers.
We took children from across Y4, 5 & 6 to compete and show off their skills. After two tough weeks, our teams came in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in their individual groups, meaning that we have earned 2 places in the Shepway Netball Finals next week!
Good luck to both our teams who will be competiting against some tough teams for the title!
This week some of our KS1 & KS2 children took part in a fun speed stacking workshop with Shepway Sports Trust to help them develop their hand eye co-ordination while having lots of fun!
The children had to learn to use both hands while stacking, 3, 6 then 3 cups each time.
We will certainly be working on these skills in Y1 & Y2 in term 6!
This week our EYFS & KS1 children were visited by Shepway Sports Trust who delivered the Fun Factory. The children had to work both independently and as a team to complete lots of challenges that focussed on power, speed, agility, reaction time and balance.
All the childrne had lots of fun learning how to be active and have fun at the same time.
This year we had a very strong team entering the Herald Cup Football Tournament. The boys trained each week with our football coaches from FLOW and put out some blinding performances against some very tough competition.
Dymchurch Vs Harcourt - 1 - 0
Dymchurch Vs Lympne - 8 - 0
Dymchurch Vs Sandgate - 2 - 3
Dymchurch Vs St Martins - 0 - 2
Unfortunately we just missed out on the quarter finals, losing our last game 2-0 to St Martins.
Well done to all of our team, we are so proud of you!
We took 3 teams of ten children to the Folkestone Rugby Club to take part in the Shepway Schools Tag Rugby Competition. The competition was focused upon a new format of 'fair play' rules, rather than the usual format in other competitions. Our teams played fantastically well with two of our teams winning their groups!
Well done to all of the children, especially Faye, Tia and Tom for winning the fair play awards.
We are looking forward to the June tournaments where we will take two teams along to play competitively!
We took four teams down to the Marsh Academy to take part in the Shepway Pop Lacrosse qualifiers. In addition to our Y5 & 6 teams, we took Year 4 children with us to give them a taster of pop lacrosse at a competitive level to prepare them for next year's events.
The children played well but had to learn to work together to defend and attack as we were up against some tough competition! One of our teams made it to the final and took 2nd place out of 12 teams, meaning that they will represent our school and Shepway in the Kent Pop Lacrosse Finals in June!
Well done to all of our teams that took part. Go Team Dymchurch!
We were fortunate again to have Shepway Sports Trust come in to deliver the Olympic Roadshow to some of our KS1 & KS2 pupils. They had the opportunity to work in teams (representing a different country) and try 4 different sports throughout the morning. The children took part in boxing, cricket, football and basketball with the SST coaches throughout the morning. Great fun and a superb attitude from all the children!
