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.
