The Downley School

“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

Inter Team 'It's A Knockout!'

A fantastic WHOLE SCHOOL event took place in September to mark the start of the year and encourage team building and teamwork skills!

The third annual 'It's a Knockout' event took place on September 20th.

Team meetings for Ash, Beech, Oak and Sycamore were held first thing and then the whole school met on the field for a brilliant morning of team building activities.

Teams were in mixed age groups, giving our older pupils a chance to show their leadership skills. We are all looking out for the next team captains and spotted some real talent amongst our Year 6 pupils.

All staff were involved and many commented upon the excellent teamwork shown by the children.

In a keenly contested competition two teams from Beech - Blue Babbling Bold Bolognese and Blue Beasts came out on top.

The overall result when all scores were added together was:

1st - Beech (1,862 points)

2nd - Ash (1,804 points)

3rd - Oak  (1,786 points)

4th - Sycamore (1,480 points)

Well done to everyone and a huge thank you to Mr Mackenzie who organised the whole event!
