Unfortunately, our Multi-Skills Competition at another school was cancelled... however, we still ensured that the children took part in some physical activity inside of school.
These 10 children (5 in Year 1 and 5 in Year 2) were chosen to take part in the competition. Every activity was one minute. We had 6 activities for the children to do:
Children had one minute to see how many times they could get the ball into the goal.
Children try and put the golf ball to hit the cone to earn a point.
3. Wall Ball
Children throw the ball, hitting the wall, followed by catching it again.
4. Bench Bounce
Children kick the ball against the bench as many times as they can.
5. Hoop Challenge
Jump inside the hoops and get to the other side.
6. Relay Race
Children pass the baton to each other using their teamwork skills.
Every child was successful and won at least one event, whether it was a team event or individual. Well done to all of you!

We had them in their classes and the 4 houses (Gryfindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff).

Girls Football Competition - Year 3/4
7 of the Year 3/4 girls at Hawbush took part in the Girls Football Competition . This was the first time some of these girls had played football but they were excellent!
We hope that you learnt something new and you carry on building your football skills.
To raise money for Sports Relief at Hawbush, we had a Active Sports Morning. This is where children could donate 50p to wear their own clothes and participate in sporting activities in the morning that they enjoy or might have never had the chance to play. This included football, gold, hockey and tag-rugby.
Year 6 - 9:00 till 9:30
Year 4 - 9:30 till 10:00
Year 3 - 10:00 till 10:30
Year 1 - 10:45 till 11:10
Year 2 - 11:10 till 11:35
Year 5 - 11:35 till 12:00
Furthermore, at lunchtime we had out Soak The Teacher activity. This was 10p a go, where teachers kindly offered to get soaked for donations.
All together we made £170.80. Thank you to all the children and parents for this amazing total.

Year 3/4 Dodgeball Tournament - Thursday 24th October 2019
Towards the end of the first Autumn half term, some of our Year 3 and 4 children who have been working extra hard attended the Dodgeball tournament. These children have been coming consistently to after school to ensure their place in the team!
Because dodgeball was such high demand this year, we took two teams of 8 to the competition which is a first for our school!
We want to say how proud we are of the children and want them to carry on practising their amazing dodgeball skills in our after school club this half term.
Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby Competition - Thursday 3rd October

Hawbush After School Club 2019
After School Dodgeball - Years 3 and 4
Hawbush After School Club has been a massive success this year. We have taken the numbers from single figure digits from 2018 to 38 children being signed up by the end of September!
There has been a huge focus on school competitons this year for Hawbus, to give children the chance to join in competitive games with other school. It will give the children the chance to take part in something they may have never had the chance to take part in before!
As there is a offsite extra curricula competition around dodgeball on Thursday 24th October, we have made that our main focus for the clubs on a Tuesday afternoon after school so we can build our skills and our sporting knowledge around the game.
The children have been showing off their awesome dodgeball skills to persevere and make their way into the Hawbush Team! Good luck!
After School Football - Years 5 and 6
This year is the first year in 3 years that we have entered a football team into the school league as Hawbush Harriers F.C.!
This has been a big motivation for our children to get involved in sport and try something new. Furthermore, children are building their confidence and self esteem and it is showing every week.
It is great to see the amount of girls getting involved in our Football After School Club and showing their skills and individual talent.
We are looking forward to our first match at the end of October. Come on you Harriers!
