I hope this fun event carries on. The water polo team.

Some of our key worker children were keeping active today. They all attempted the Lincolnshire School Games Virtual Pentathlon competition. Thanks to Shannon and Matt Evans for supporting the children and keeping them active!

What an effort...Grace and Noah took part in the ‘race at your pace’ cycling challenge- cycle 50 miles in April. Today, they completed and indeed exceeded their target - 52 miles in 9 days. Mr Saunders wonders if they can do 100 miles? They will get a medal sent through the post at the end of the month. Well done you two.

Today's Gym and Trampolining Festival (17.1.20)



On Friday (10.01.20), we took part in the Sleaford and District Football Tournament organised by @CGSOutreach and got to the final, we actually lost 3-0 :( well played Cranwell; before the game started, however, the referee organised a penalty shootout and would have used the result should the game have ended in a draw. I liked the idea:

1 Less pressure on a child (until a skill is truly embedded, external pressure doesn't help learning)
2 Practice for the future (not many finals end in penalties-Gareth Southgate might have benefited in '96)
3 Chance to make amends in the match if you miss
4 Losing team won't be playing for a draw







Sleaford Boston Road Rec Parkrun- The first of many I hope!

Sleaford and District Cross-Country Champions: Matilda 1st Thomas 2nd Levi 3rd. Well done all.

These are routines 1, 2 and 3. 1 is easier than 2 and so on.  See if you can copy the routine that you think is most appropriate and then show Mr Westerman, he might record you and enter you into the competition.


This shed, somewhere in Sleaford, looks like it would be just the right size to store markers and cones if Sleaford were ever to have a free junior 2 km run on a Sunday morning.

Football Champions. Mr Ernest Pearson joined the staff of the Boys' School in 1930, and under his training the football team won every match in the 1931-32 season, winning the Sleaford and District Schools' League Final on Saturday, 18 April, 1932. The school was given a cup, and each member of the team received a silver medal from Mr W Phipps, the Chief Education Officer for Kesteven County Council.

Swimming at The Alvey. Peter Thornton notes that as part of their PE timetable in the early 1920's, the children often went swimming in the open air pool, summer and winter. This is a photo in the reception area of Sleaford Leisure Centre. Do you think it could be Alvey staff teaching the children?
