Today was the Archery ‘intra-sport’ Competition. Both staff and pupils came to compete for their house.
One of Ecton Brooks school Projects is to get every member of staff active, so you will be seeing a lot more staff taking part in the ‘intra’ competitions.
Also our Young Leaders who were trained last Friday, it was their first time to help in a competition and they did a marvellous job st scoring, demonstrating and taking names.
Who will hit the target.

Today 30 Young Leaders were trained at Ecton Brook. The Young Leaders will be delivering games during lunchtimes to other children, as well as helping out at our many sports events.
The enthusiasm and encouragement displayed from them whilst delivering their activity to Year 2 this afternoon leaves me in no doubt that it will be a great year for our Young Leaders.
We all love ‘Popping Pirates’
Lots of concentration for this game

The Change4Life club has started at Ecton Brook, there is a 12 week Programme where the children will do different activities each week. Some of the activities will be, Archery, New Age Kurling, Dance and healthy cooking.
Today was the parachute and the children enjoyed themselves immensely.
The girls football club was in full swing this morning.
They were practicing positions and passing then finishing with a game.
Ecton Brook hosted the girls football competition today.
We played against Standens Barn, Woodvale, St Peters and Rectory Farm. Some of the games were very close, but overall we improved with every game.
It was nice to see so many parents from other schools come out to support all the teams.
We managed to come in 3rd place so a very well done girls, a brilliant effort.

If you would like to join running club on either site please let your teacher know. This is a great way to stay fit and get healthy.
Yesterday at sailing it was more than apparent that the children knew the routine, wetsuit, life jacket, boat, pull it down to the water, set it up, ie: bung, sail, board, push boat into water and sail away.
Some of the children had their boat in the water within 10 minutes.
Despite there not being much wind we still had a brilliant time.

What wonderful weather we had for Forest School this afternoon.
The children laughed, played made dens and found insects, a good start for the rest of term.
Into the Forest we go
We’re loving this
I’m thinking of jumping from here
Girls meeting way up in the trees
I climbed all the way up here

We will finish this
