A great final week to the term with a variety of activities including basketball, balancing games and football. As always the highlight for the kids was the Easter Egg hunt. Well done to all, it really has been a very good term for the club. Have a great Easter break and we look forward to seeing you all back on Saturday 18th April.
Anand was our star performer of the week at Epping Forest Sportability Club on Saturday so very well done for a great effort. We have a second star this week as Jess's TV career gets underway with a starring role in the Teens programme on Channel 4. On Saturday we played tag games, 3's catch and hockey so quite a variety. This coming Saturday is our last before the Easter break so make sure you come along to see what treats are in store!
An eventful week! Whilst the parents, carers and committee were having a meeting (which was very productive) the children had an action packed Saturday, They started with Indoor Athletics featuring standing long jump, running relays, chest push and normal long jump. That was followed by benchball games and then after a break was playing on the indoor apparatus which included climbing, balancing and using the ropes. Ryan P was our star of the week but unfortunately we are not able to share photos of Ryan. He got involved in all the activities as well as looking after his little sister while the adults had their meeting. Well done Ryan!
We made the most of the good weather this week by spending most of the session outside on the playground in the sunshine. Three different activities were crammed in to the session with Tag Rugby, Dodgeball and finally Matball. Matball is similar to Benchball - you guessed it we used Mats instead of benches! The star this week was Theo, one of our newer members - well done Theo!
This coming week we invite all parents and carers to come to an extraordinary AGM as we have some important changes and updates to discuss. The meeting will start at 10:15 as soon as the children have got going with their session. We promise to keep it as brief as possible but would like as many as possible to come along and have their say.
We returned from the half term break with some great news, Loughton Town Council have been very generous in awarding us £1,000.00 of funding for the financial year 2015 to 2016 which is fantastic news and a much needed boost to the club's funds.
We had a good turn out on Saturday and the first half of the session we concentrated on multi-skill games that focused on team work and inclusivity. As you can see from the photo below these included some Parachute games, among others such as "Rob 'da Nest" and "Bridges and Rivers". The second half of the session was basketball when we broke in to several teams and had a mini-competition.
The star of the week was Ryan Aylesbury, one of our newest members, who got really stuck in to each activity. Well done Ryan,
Next week, if Alan remembers to bring the balls, will be indoor Rugby. Hopefully not too many high kicks as seen in Sunday's game in Ireland!
