Athletics (Y3 - Y6)
Dodgeball Report - Olivia (Y6)
You might want to dodge the ball but you don't want to dodge this!
At Lavendon School we had a fun dodgeball competition and Owls, Foxes, Squirrels and Rabbits all joined in to try and win.
The winner overall was Foxes!
We were very fortunate to have a visit from Nigel Willard today. He came in to run some taster tennis sessions for the children and led an assembly for the whole school. The children all loved the activities and listening to Mr Willard's stories about successful tennis players from Lavendon and other local areas. Please visit the Olney Tennis Club website if your child is interested in taking up tennis outside of school.

By Lily, Erin, Emilia and Emilie
On Thursday 8th December, KS2 took part in a basketball competition (if they wanted to). All four teams went against each other in turn, while there was one scorer and timekeeper for each team. They swapped each game. In Sports Leadership (enrichment), we have been taught to teach and organise these games. It was thoroughly enjoyable.
By Ellie and Elsa
On Thursday 8th December we did a basketball competition. I was on the Blue team, I won a game 6-2 and I scored two goals. It was fun!
