Over the past fortnight the school gymnasts have been very busy jumping, rolling and balancing in various competitions.
Firstly, Clockhouse Primary School was selected to host the Havering Schools Key Steps 2 Competition for children in year's 3 and 4. Lucia B, Lacey S, Tristian O and Oliver E performed very well guiding the school to a 5th place finish.
In addition to hosting the Key Steps 2 event, the school was also selected to host the Key Stage 3 event for children in year's 5 and 6. Holly W, Brooke A, Kaiden B and Riley S represented the school. A great show resulted in Clockhouse finishing runners up to a strong Towers Junior's team. There was also individual succes for Kaiden B in the vault and Holly W with her floor routine.
Last Saturday 27 children from Clockhouse entered and participated in the Jaybee Schools Gymnastics Festival. Clockhouse had a hugely successful weekend winning the overall team trophies for Years 1/2 and Years 3-6!
At the same event Karla S was awarded an individual trophy for the highest overall score within the whole of the novice competition with children from Year 3 through to 6!! This is an incredible achievement, especially as Karla is only a Year 3!! Additional awards are given to the highest 6 scores in each competition category, the results are as follow;
Mr Yarrow commented on the recent success saying 'I would like to praise every gymnast that has represented the school in the past fornight. I see in PE lessons and when I get a chance to pop into clubs just how hard these children train. All of you have done the school proud. It is great to have not one but two trophies to go in the cabinet!
I must say a personal thank you to Jaybee Gymnastics School for all their hard work, working with the children. It makes a huge difference!
It is great to see so many boys taking part, I know the gymnastic coaches are always looking for more children especially boys, if your child is interested in taking up gymnastics please get in contact me.
Once again well done to all our amazing gymnasts, I am so proud of you all!'
Well done to the girls gym team who took part in a competition last Friday.
The girls had to perform an individual floor routine, two vaults and a group routine. This competition is always a very hotly contested one and Clockhouse did very well. The children were a total credit to the school and managed to come an amazing 4th Place.
We do not have the full results yet, but as Head Judge Mrs Ewenson will get these to us as soon as she can.
Well done to the three girls who represented the school so well - Ruby N, Grace B and Jayla H.
