Last Monday, Morden Mount and James Wolfe played their final set of netball matches for this year. Both teams played very well and were evenly matched, with the first game resulting in a 2-2 draw. The second game was also keenly played, with James Wolfe eventually triumphing 5-2. Well done to all those involved.

 

Last Friday, the KidzFit organisation visited James Wolfe. All classes were involved and thoroughly enjoyed their sessions.

A heartfelt thank you to Class 5Y for organising and carrying out the James Wolfe Skipathon, which took place in late June. The day was a huge success with everyone     enjoying their skipping, as well as the coaching from the 5Y volunteers. 

  Most of the sponsorship money has now been collected and the British Heart Foundation will   be      receiving a massive donation of over £600 from James Wolfe. Thank you to everyone who sponsored their child and sent their money in! If you are still collecting your sponsorship money, please send it into school with your child by the end of next week. Thank you.

Years 3 and 5 have been receiving training from a specialist coach in Capoeira. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art which stems from a fusion of practices belonging to West African groups brought over as slaves to Brazil. It has helped to develop children's co-ordination, balance, agility, strength and stamina. Children have learnt sequences of movements which they have applied in a game with a partner, requiring them to interact and respond to each other. Capoeira is played to music, children have learnt about the songs and instruments. They have also learnt about the history of the art form and how it has developed. Capoeira is a fantastic way of engaging children, particularly boys, in an art form which centres on respect and physical interaction.

Year 4 have worked in a series of sessions with a local Taekwondo coach from The Tan'Gun Taekwondo Academy, David Carmichael. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art, promoting children’s co-ordination, balance, agility, strength, stamina and self-discipline. This coaching will then be offered to Year 5 for a series of 6 sessions. Key Stage 2 has also had an assembly presented to them by David Carmichael about Taekwondo, demonstrating the different aspects of the sport.

Years 4 and 5 participated in the SportInspired Games, a community sports event at Workspace Warehouse, Greenwich. They tried many different sports, such as volleyball, American Football and Taekwondo. They were in mixed teams competing against teams from two other Greenwich schools and showed fantastic team work and sportsmanship. The Lightning Bolts, one of the James Wolfe teams, won a trophy.

Year 4 children were invited to take part in the Summer Sports Festival run by Blackheath Secondary School. The children were involved in a number of sporting challenges throughout the day run by Year 9 students and staff from Blackheath Secondary School.

The Greenwich Primary Schools Yr 5/6 Kwikcricket Championships was hosted in Eltham this year in late June. The head coach of one of the local cricket clubs came to James Wolfe to coach the two year 6 classes before the event. A team of ten budding cricketers was entered into the Tournament, they played with great skill and determination, coming 2nd overall, winning a superb trophy.
Also taking place in the same month, was the Greenwich Primary Schools Girls Kwikcricket Tournament. James Wolfe entered two teams into this event. The girls had a fantastic time, excelling themselves and competing in a sport that they had previously not considered playing competitively. The two teams managed to secure 4th and 5th place in the Tournament.
