Strawberry Slam 2019 – Our End-of-Year Tennis Celebration.

On Friday 12th July, we held a “Strawberry Slam” so all our school children could celebrate us having been one of the three National Finalists in the LTA Tennis Award for Education for 2018.

A boys’ team and a girls’ team were made up of chosen pupils and staff.  They played a series of doubles matches on our playground’s Centre Court whilst the rest of the school enthusiastically cheered on their favoured team.

Some of the staff really got into the spirit of the occasion with their attire.

Various KS1 children also contributed to the competitive series with a “Tidy Your Room” game.

The results were as follows:

KS1’s “Tidy your Room” was won by the girls.
Mr Earl and Mr Alltoft beat Mrs Hodgson and Ms Watson.
In the year 5 match, Ruby and Mia held their nerve to win against Liam and Jamie, 10-9.
In the year 3 match, Jamie and Artie won against Isla and Amelia.
In the deciding match, Evan (Y4) and Harley (Y3) were victorious against Ms Brown and Mrs Porteous.

So well done to the boys who were the overall winners by 3 games to 2.

The entertaining afternoon then concluded with strawberries for everyone!
