On Wednesday 21st November our Hockey team here at Pennington Infants participated in a Quicksticks tournament at Priestlands School. The children were unable to play a match due to the wet weather but instead were in the sports hall and enjoyed a range of skills based activities. The children were very good at controlling the ball around cones and passing to each other. Their hand-eye coordination was superb. Their determination,resilience, evaluative and co-operation skills enabled them to achieve fantastic results. The children are truly prepared for when the matches are re-scheduled. Well done to the two teams, we look forward to supporting you in future Quicksticks events later in the year.
Some comments from some of the team...."I love Hockey " (Dawson ) "I enjoy being in goal" (Hooper) "This is so fun" (Rupert) "We can win this!" (Cerys-Ann). "Come on team!" (Scarlet) "I can't wait to play again" (Bobby who was absent on the day as poorly!). Many thanks to Mr Jocelyn and Mr Jenkins who organised the teams on the day and for their help in their training.

Congratulations to all the children who took part in the inter-schools Cross Country competition at Priestlands School. The children ran 700 metres and showed superb resilience. Pennington Infant School were the only school to enter Reception children as well as children from Year 1 and Year 2. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all the parents who supported.
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Cerys-Ann came FIRST and has returned to school with another GOLD medal! Our trophy cabinet is beginning to look very full. Well done Cerys-Ann we can't wait to see how far your running talent takes you!
