Cricket & Hockey
Yesterday we played in a League cricket competition against St Francis and Nine Acres Primary. Our team showed some great skills in fielding and bowling in both games to keep the opposing teams scores down. We then went in to bat and against St Francis we won 267 runs to 219 with some excellent batting from all the team and against Nine Acres we scored 250 v 215, both wins secured us top place in the group and we now progress through to the next round
Well done to Sonnie,Sam,Noah,Connor,Matteo,Zeke,Herbie and Thomas

Table Tennis Festival
On Monday 12th March we took a mixed team of 11 to a Table Tennis festival at Smallbrook Table Tennis Stadium.
We had 3 hours of Table Tennis coached by 3 very experienced Table Tennis coaches.
The coaches worked mainly on technique using a forearm and backhand stroke, body position and how to hit the ball.
There was even a Table Tennis robot which fired 20 balls at you to return over the net, with 1 of our team returning 19 shots!!
A great afternoon of Table Tennis and as always great behaviour from all who went representing Niton Primary School.
Well done to….Sonnie, Amelia, Emily, Noah, James, Luca, Amelie, Sophie, Alfie, Ziva and Joel.
