Ecton Brook attends Dexterity Dance 

Ecton Brook went to Great Houghton today to attend Dexterity Dance.

Each school made up a routine and then presented their performance to the other schools. 

We all enjoyed learning the routine but we were a little bit nervous when we had to perform it in front of everyone else. 

The final practice

Jump and scream

Netball (NPAT) Ecton Brook v Lings

Yesterday we kicked off our first NPAT ‘Get Staff Active’ games with netball.

It was a great turnout 18 members of staff turned up to play netball at Ecton Brook.  Most of us had not played netball since we left school but it all came flooding back.  Some staff had never played netball before.

We all had fun and thoroughly enjoyed it, Lings won 6-2, however the score did not reflect the enjoyment, we laughed so much.  Our next game is against Abington Vale on Tuesday.

Tag Rugby ‘Shield’ Finals Year 5/6 Bellinge Team

Yesterday Bellinge Tag Rugby Team went to Millway Primary School to compete for the ‘Shield’.

There were 5 teams in our group.  We lost 2, drew 1 and won 1 which led to us finishing in 3rd place in our group.  Again we improved with every game.  The girls in this team were amazing their tagging ability allowed so many ‘6 Tag turnovers’ which proved valuable to their team.

Bellinge Team will now play Ecton Brook Rugby Team next term,

Well done to both teams.
