2nd December 2015- St. Mary's take Bronze at the Parallel Sports Hall Athletics

We travelled by taxi to Leicester and went to a sports hall. We had a drink when we got there and something to eat. Our first game was the javelin and we had to try and get it the furthest. Ellis won. Then Jamie won a game jumping either side of a line. Then the other Ellis won a bean bag game, you had to throw the bag into a basket. Then Emma won at long jump. I beat everybody in a running contest. There were about 21 teams there. Then St. Mary's had to get their certificate for coming 3rd. We then got some bronze medals. Then we went back home to St. Mary's.

Thursday 19th November 2015 - Year 5/6 Basketball Competition, MV16

We took two teams of 10 children  (A Team and B Team) to compete at the Year 5/6 Basketball Competition at Melton Vale Post-16 Centre. The children all represented the school brilliantly by working hard, encouraging each other and by showing great sporting attitude throughout. Well done, Starbright!

14th October 2015 Year 3/4 Rugby Tournament

On a sunny Wednesday morning a bunch of year 3 and 4 children jumped on a bus excited for the rugby tournament. We were all dressed in black and white as we were representing Fiji and their rugby kit is black and white.

From year 3 we had Amelie, Connor, Austin, Lewis, Thomas C and Megan A and from year 4 we had Zac, Jayden, Olivia, Lilly, Evie and Charlie.

We arrived and Donna from Melton Zumba helped us with the warm up. We had worked on the Haka all week so we all knew what to do.

Miss Deackes explained we would all have a go but only 7 could go on at a time and there should always be 2 girls on during each match. During the games we worked brilliantly as a team and we helped each other to score tries.

The weather changed from sun to rain to wind to rainbows, it was very cold but we continued to work really hard together. 

As a team we won 8 games and only lost 3.  We are proud that we worked to win many games and everyone got a chance to have a few goes. At the end we got our scores which we think were wrong but overall we really enjoyed ourselves and knew we played really well.

Football Tournament

On Monday 28th September, 18 people from year 5 and year 6 went to a football tournament and had a great time. We played games against Brownlow, Old Dalby and The Grove. We won the game against Old Dalby and lost the other two. Brownlow got into the girl’s and boy’s final with the other two teams. When we were finished we got onto the bus and said well done to each other.

7th September Balance Bikes

7th September Balance Bikes  1
The Gruffaloes had the amazing opportunity of having balance bike sessions as one of three schools trialled across Melton. No these sessions the children had the opportunity to use the balance bikes to develop their core balance through a variety of different activities. The children absolutely loved it and every child showed improvement in their balance. 
One child Ava Thornton came into school after second week saying "I can now ride my bike without stabilisers at home".
What a great success!
We have now bought 6 balance bikes and helmets so the children can continue to gain from this valuable experience.
