Sports and more

Wednesday we went to the colfox sports festival, we did football rounders, tennis rounders, cricket rounders and normal rounders. Yesterday we started swimming for the time in year 5. We did dodgeball yesterday it was great fun, Mr Toohill caught me out but I can’t blame him because he is tall. Year 5 boys love football, most of them are in the st.catherines football team.

Starting swiming

We started swimming on the 7th of June. We split into two groups and got changed.Then one group did P.E and another started swimming. We had about ten minutes each. While swimming we practiced our front stroke also we had a bit of free play. We had to practice an emergency getting out at the horn and two people went and told the office and year 2.

Team Building Games

In P.E today we were doing team building activities. Firstly, we played a warm  up game called domes and dishes which involved speed and lots of people. This is simple – all you have to do is create two teams and dot loads of cones around your two teams and one team has to try and keep the cones looking like dishes and the other team has to keep the cones looking like domes.


How to play caterpillars. All you have to do is, have at least three teams of five with a ball inbetween each player. The object of the game is to keep the ball inbertween you will racing around an obstacle course without it falling from between you.

All you need is four teams of about five, as many been bags as you can find and finally five hoops with a group of been bags in each hoop then when you here the whistle steel as many been bags from everywhere. At the of the game whoever has the most been bags at the end wins.
