Quad Kids 23rd May 2016
On Monday 23rd May, 10 children represented Fitzmaurice at a Quad Kids competition at Bath Uni. Each of us had to do four different events: 75 metre sprint, standing long jump, throwing a vortex and 600 metre long distance run.
There were 220 children from 22 nearby schools, we all enjoyed the experience and the atmosphere was great.
We were all excited to find out that we had won the whole competition by 250 points and that Joe A and Carys M were individual winners too……………….absolutely BRILLIANT!! We now have to go to Marlborough to take part in the West Wilts Quad Kids final in July. Well done everyone! Written by Toby and Jess L

Wiltshire County Netball Finals – 26th April 2016
After winning the West Wiltshire finals, we were really happy to be going to the County finals. Despite the crazy weather, we played amazingly well and worked incredibly as a team. Even though we didn’t win, we are really proud of how we did and it was an experience to remember.

On Wednesday 20th April we went to the Gym competition. When we got there we were SO excited. After we put our things upstairs, we went to do the warm up. There were 17 other schools. (That’s a lot don’t you think?!) Then we went around the gym and did lots of fun activities such as: jumping into the foam pit, bouncing on the trampoline and doing battle beam. Finally we started the competition for real. Everybody did their best and there were no mistakes. We are all very proud of ourselves, here’s how we did.

For Sports Relief day this year, the whole school (children and staff) ran a mile around the top field. Y5/6 started first with the other year groups setting off in 5 minute intervals. FS1, KS1 and Y3/4 children could come dressed as their favourite sporting hero for a contribution of £1 towards Sports Relief, and a puzzle sheet, designed by one of the pupils was on sale for 10p.
On Monday 7th March 2016 at Kingdown School, ten teams, all district winners, competed in the West Wilts netball finals. Five teams were in our pool and we won all four matches. We went through to the semi-finals against Bitham Brook. We won convincingly. WE WERE THROUGH TO THE FINALS!!
In the final, we played against St. Johns; they were really tough but we won 4-2! FAB FAB FAB!! We are now going through to the Wiltshire County finals in April. We hope we can do the same next time.
We are all very proud of ourselves and excited to play in the county finals.
