New Age Kurling and Boccia|
This year saw the first ever competition of the New Age Boccia and Kurling event. We got off to a great start, with the boys scoring a very respectable 54 passes of the kurling stone - with William Purdy taking the plaudits for being absolutely excellent!
In our second activity, we had to reach the target and the boys amassed a great score of 10. This time it was the another william, William Beesley who achieved 4 of our 10 points - he was nicknamed our 'secret weapon' by Mrs. Simpson! A superb effort!
Our final event saw Oliver Cross score 5 out of 6 points when pushing the stone into the scoring zone. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, George stepped up and scored 6 out of 6!
In the boccia, the boys scored excelled greatly with a total score of 27, meaning our overall finish was tenth - a great achievement! The boys enjoyed it that much, that we have now ordered our very own boccia kit for other children to try in PE lessons.
A fantastic afternoon, exellent sportsmanship and behaviour, and most important of all, lots and lots of fun! Well done boys, you did us proud!
Team: Oliver Cross, George Billington, William Beesley and William Purdy.
