On a frosty cold winter's morning we had a great turnout for our penultimate Sportability session of the year.
The warm up was led by Alan with Ollie running a traffic light game including jogging and star jumps.
We then played some putting with the group splitting in to four. Initially it was putting down a lane of cones trying to get in the hoop at the end. Speed and direction were key.
After that they went on to taking turns to hit and collect cones laid out on the floor
After a quick drinks break the final putting game was trying to get it in to a hoop for 1 point but if you got it to stop on a mat inside the cone then that was 10 points. Getting it to stop on the mat was near impossible though - we did try really hard! The team Ollie was leading won the game after accumulating 17 points!
After the main break we switched sports to Benchball. The group split in to three teams and they took it in turns to play each other. The green team won the first game against the blues but the blue team then won against the yellow team. In the match up between the green team and yellows it was the green team that won out once more. In the rematch between the blues and greens it was the blue team that triumphed this time. Blue vs yellow game two was won by the blue team again. Finally, the Green vs Yellow re-match the yellow team won and got their revenge. Overall, the blue team won having been victorious in three of their four games.
Stars of the week are pictured below and include Alexander - well done to both boys!
Do not forget that next week is our last before the Christmas break so we will be having a lot of fun and a bit of music. Bring along your party food and drinks to make it a bit special, if you like!
Unfortunately, Alan is unlikely to be able to be with us next week as he has to take his Mum to a hospital appointment. So, we would all just like to say a big thank you to Alan for all his efforts throughout the year and wish him a very Happy Christmas and New Year!
