We made St Nic's history by attending our first ever basketball tournament. We are very proud of all the children who gave it their all. It was a close competition - one of our matches went to extra time with Ashton scoring the Golden Basket to win the game.
We also had a fantastic Gymnastics competition. We took two teams of mixed year 3 and 4 children to Writhlington school to compete in two events. They were split into two levels of competition, level 1 - non gym club members and level 2 - gym club members. Both teams did so well and we are very proud of what they achieved. Their team spirit was amazing and they all memorized their routines brilliantly. Our level 2 team come 5th place and our level 1 team come in 1st place with Evie getting an individual gold medal and Chloe getting an individual silver for their routines. Well done to all the children.

"Last week we were fortunate enough to compete in the Biathlon which consists of swimming 50 metres and running 800 metres at Bath university. While we were registering we came across Jamie Cooke, a pentathlon athlete who recently won gold at the world championships in Mexico and a few of us proudly held his medal (Mrs Clarke and Mrs Smith were in awe). By the end of the day, when are legs were achy and we all desperately needed a shower, we were all extremely victorious and proud of our achievements"

Congratulations to everyone that took part.

On a lovely afternoon this week we took a team of 7 enthusiastic netballers to the High 5 netball tournament at Somervale school. We were incredibly proud of the team work and dedication the girls showed. They fought hard in every game and didn't stop chasing that ball down until the final whistle blew. The improvement in the girls since the tournament last year was quite staggering. Huge Thank you to Sarah Cox who gives up her time every week to train the girls. We can't wait for the next match.

On Thursday 25th October our girl’s football team won their first match 2-1 on penalties against Midsomer Norton Primary. This is the first ever victory for our girls team. WELL DONE GIRLS!!!!

Our netball team set off for Somervale school for a netball cup  match against clutton and played amazingly well. They worked very well as a team and to get to the cup had trained brilliantly especially with their footwork, which is great. Their passing was excellent throughout the game and they scored some fantastic goals. The score was 8-7 to Clutton but they still played extraordinary well. Thank you everyone that came to support the team and cheer them on.
