The children in Year 4 have been attending squash lessons over the last two weeks and have learnt some great skills.
The children now know the basic rules in squash and have played lots of games against each other to practise.
See the photo gallery below to watch the children hit the ball against the wall to each other in a game of squash.
This term, some Y5 children have been attending lacrosse sessions on Wednesday mornings. They have learnt lots of new skills and have been practising catching a ball with a lacrosse stick, which is a lot harder than it looks!
The children have also enjoyed playing games against each other.
See the photo gallery below to see what some of the Y5 children have been up to.

A big thank you to all the staff, parents, family and friends who were able to support on the day.
We celebrated the Resurrection in school today with various activities in each class and a unique Resurrection Liturgy with music provided by our Shona community. It was a wonderful end to a very eggciting day.
The Easter bonnets in KS1 were very impressive. Thank you to all the families that helped make it a wonderful and joyful experience for the children, as they paraded around in front of all the school.
We were also impressed with the egg rolling and the decorated eggs in KS2. There was a lot of effort put into them and once again we thank you for supporting your children in taking part and having a great time.
Who was crowned St Marie's Egg rolling champion? It was Aiden in Year 6 whose eggcellent egg continue to roll even after reaching the end of the egg rolling track! It still may be rolling somewhere!
Please take a look at the photographs below of our very special day and a big thank you to our Shona families for helping make it a very special liturgy.
Thanks to all of you who volunteered to take part in our Lenten Fast Day lunch today to support Cafod's 'Give it Up Challenge'. We hope you enjoyed the soup! Thank you to all the children and staff who chopped all the vegetables this morning. Thank you to all the families that came to join us for soup. Over 75 meals of Soup were served – a magnificent total - giving us over £260 to donate to CAFOD.
