At the end of December we took our super dance club members to Pent Valley School to compete in a dance competition against 8 other schools.
The girls composed a winter/ Christmas themed dance with Mrs Goodburn and Mrs Andrews over the term and then performed it to the judges at PV.
Our team performed superbly and overcame many barriers along the way such as the music failing to play!
Well done to Tia, Jenna, Charlotte, Connie, Mia, Paige & Roxie for your performance!
This week (January 15th) we took 2 teams of Year 4/5/6 children to the Marsh Academy to compete in the Shepway Pop Lacrosse Tournament against other Marsh schools.

Both teams played extremely well against the 3 other teams in the tournament with Dymchurch 1 & Dymchurch 2 leading on points until the final head-to-head game.
Dymchurch 1 & 2 displayed fantastic teamwork and effort in the final game leading them to take

This week (2nd Dec) 3 of our football teams took to the school field to take part in a friendly football tournament against Palmarsh Primary.
First up was the Year 5/6 girls team. They have only been working as a team for a week and played brilliantly, winning the game 3-1!
The team worked hard to intercept the ball and drove it up the field to score 3 goals - congratulations girls!
Second to play was our Year 3/4 boys team who worked very hard to find space on the pitch and had so many shots on target! They worked well passing the ball around the field but despite a fantastic effort from the boys, a shot was deflected in to our goal, leaving the boys to finish 0-1.
Finally it was the turn of the Year 5/6 boys team. They entered the game in high spirits after last weeks success and kept the spectators on their toes for the whole game. The boys worked hard to move into space and took many shots, however, they were evenly matched against the Palmarsh team and finished the game 0-0.
Well done to all the teams, you played brilliantly and did Dymchurch proud!
