Sports

Dainton Tri-Golf

Fernworthy Class were invited to Dainton Golf Club to a Tri-Golf festival organised in conjunction with South Dartmoor Sports Partnership.  The pupils were able to refine some of their golf skills during the afternoon and learnt new skills from the staff and young leaders at the festival.

Body Language Dance Festival

Year 5 and 6 pupils were invited to attend the South Dartmoor dance festival with other local primary schools.  The children had worked hard to produce a dance which was performed in front of hundreds of people at South Dartmoor Community College.  The theme of the Festival was the Commonwealth Games and St Mary’s school was given the two Commonwealth countries of Thailand and South Africa on which to base their dance.  Artwork and costumes were prepared by the pupils in anticipation of the event.

Sports Relief and Rowcroft Fundraiser

The school councillors designed and  organised the school’s obstacle course which was completed by all pupils and some staff, in return for a donation to raise money for Sports Relief and Rowcroft Hospice, charities selected by the school council this year.  Activities involved stepping stones, hurdles, hoola hoops, sack racing, skipping, camouflage nets and a caterpillar! Once the event was over, Foundation stage pupils then went and designed an obstacle course of their own.

Congratulations to the tag rugby team made up of pupils from Year 5 and 6 who attended a Tag Rugby festival at Newton Abbot Rugby club.  Following some Tag Rugby training sessions in P.E. lessons at school, pupils competed against other schools in the tournament and came fourth out of sixteen schools.
