Another action packed week has flown by for us here at Pool House.

A special mention this week to all the juniors who do play leading at lunchtime’s. They volunteer to play with the infants at dinnertime and help them to enjoy themselves. Although this is a very pleasurable and rewarding thing to do, they still give their time up playing with their friends to do this and the infants love each and every one of them. Thanks guys your all amazing.

The infants have enjoyed football all week. “we want to play it every day”, Daniel and Alan told me on Monday. With a few of the new reception class children joining in its been fun, fun, fun all the way. Some fantastic goal keeping was on display this week from Reegan, Alan and Daniel. Even though they are playing with nets big enough for giants they still managed to produce saves David De Gea would have been proud of. All in all, a fantastic week as ever in the infant yard with respect for each other, referees and staff members on show at all times.

The lower juniors have really taken to Basketball this week, with penalty throws being the game of choice. We did manage to squeeze a game of football in the middle and even though he picked up a knock half way through the game, Lee still managed to score and finish on the winning team. The basketball games were a lot of fun, but no matter how hard they tried; nobody could beat Max for the number of hoops scored.

The upper juniors took charge of the sporting decisions this week. Football and skittles made for a great sporting combo. As ever Harrison played like a man possessed and got his self around the pitch more than anyone else. Only Owen was able to keep up with him and both players reaped the rewards of hard work with a couple of goals each and both leading their teams to victory (on separate days). The two games of skittle saw Gabriel’s team triumph on Tuesday and Jackson’s team take the win on Thursday. Skittles is really popular at the minute with almost all of the upper juniors wanting to take part. As Friday was a little wet and slippy we tried a new game of 3 step pass. Quiet a tricky game to get the hang of but a massive well done to all those who tried, we will keep working on it.

The upper junior sports person of the week goes to Rebecca. This young girl is always willing to help others and likes to use her free time at lunch to play with the infants. Just recently she has started to join in with some sporting games and is finding that she really likes it. She always sets a brilliant example to everyone no matter what she’s doing.

The lower junior sports person of the week goes to Lee. The only reason lee has never won this before is because he likes to help out were ever he can. He likes to help in the infants, he likes to help with refereeing games and he likes to help out his friends whenever he can. But make no mistake, Lee is a top sportsman and has no problem playing any of our sporting games.

The infant sports person of the week goes to Alan. There’s not much to say about this guy other than, he’s a star. Every game, every lunchtime, come rain or shine, he wants to play. He always try’s his best and he is a fantastic team player. I encourage every player to play as a team, work together and try your best; but with this young man I don’t need to because he does this without thinking. I say again, what a star.

More sporting fun next week if the weather stays dry…
