Netball tournament 


On the 5th of May, our Castle Camps Netball Team participated in another netball tournament (The Plate Final) at a new destination- Comberton. Having had to cancel the tournament twice already, due to bad weather, we were all extremely excited to play. Thankfully, the weather was fine and we had a lovely sunny evening at Comberton. The team came 9th in the end but they received certificates and their coach (Mrs McFarlane) was very happy with their results and hard work.

On the 3rd of May 2016, some of the year 5 and 6s went to Cambridge United’s football stadium to play a thrilling 5 a-side football tournament. There were also 30 other schools there! Every single game we played was eight minutes long with end to end football. For this competition there were four stages, like there are for every football competition, these were: a group stage, a quarter final, a semi-final and then the FIIIINAAAAL (which we didn’t get to sadly). At the end of the tournament every team got a well-deserved medal. Next year (if our football team win the Linton Area Tournament) we hope they will also be invited to play at Cambridge United Football Club. We hope next year’s year 6 will work really hard as a team as this was an amazing opportunity.

During March, Class 5 started to do orienteering as part of their PE; we learnt how to accurately use a compass. We also learnt how to end up in the correct destinations, using our partner’s directions.

Happy New Year! We started our fairground topic this afternoon by building our very own fairground rides. "It was loads of fun!" said Natasha.

Deer Class wrote Christmas stories to read to their buddies in Hedgehog Class this week. Having enjoyed creating their Christmas story books they loved reading them aloud.

As part of our Spanish day we made maracas following instructions in Spanish. It was quite challenging but we really enjoyed working with the rest of KS2!
