On Friday four children had the opportunity to try Squash at Metheringham Squash Club. There were 16 children from 6 local schools.
First they did some fun games as a warm up, then did some throwing and catching skills. The children were then given safety goggles to wear and were sized for the right squash racket.
They all had good hand eye coordination meaning they could hit the ball with ease. They had the opportunity to play all the other children and even got the hang of serving the ball.
Every child was able to have a mini game of squash by the end of the afternoon.

The event was attended by 6 schools, so they were able to meet and play games with other children. An excellent afternoon.
A seven strong netball team of mixed years 4, 5 and 6 had a fantastic afternoon at St Georges, Sleaford. An amazing 21 teams had turned out for the tournament, which was run on a ladder system. After every game the winner moved up a court and the loser moved down a court. This meant that we met several different teams and some teams more than once!
During the afternoon several goals were scored by Lauren, Libby and Joseph. We managed a fantastic 5th place, just missing out on the semi-final.
The whole team showed amazing team work, perseverance and most of all their encouragement towards each other was great. Yet again Leasingham were a team to be proud of and a pleasure to take out to represent our school.
Six year 6 children had the opportunity to take part in Pop Lacrosse. On a very cold Friday afternoon 13 schools braved the weather and had a go at Pop Lacrosse.
They all spent the first hour trying to master the skills of throwing, catching and running with the ball - not as easy as it sounds! Three leagues were then set up to take part in some game play. The aim is to get the ball from one end of the pitch to the other, throwing the ball amongst your team and eventually shooting the ball in the goal, however, the other team are trying to block you in any way possible.
The team won all 4 of their league games and progressed through to the semi-finals, which they won after a good battle. Then the final came! This was a tough and well fought match against Caythorpe with both teams having shots on goal and some great defending by all. The team came home with a fantastic Silver.
On Friday 4th we -Edward Simpson and Grace Ballard- attended a fencing try-out with 8 other schools. To start the session we had a brief training session where the coach taught us the basic steps to fence. After that Edward got kitted up with gloves, Helmet, a sword and jacket. I then had a fight with a girl from Caythope. It was very close as she was a natural and scored 3 hits and I scored 2. Then we swapped over so grace could have a go. I fought a boy from Caythope who scored 3 hits and I scored 1. All in all it was very enjoyable hour plus we got a credit for our school.

The year 6’s went to a swimathon at Sleaford leisure centre. They won and became 2 year reigning champions with 55 lengths! It started at 1:30 pm and ended at 1:55 pm so we had 25 minutes to swim as many lengths as fast as we could. And it was a very tiring job it was very enjoyable and we had a fantastic time. After we climbed out of the pool we all got a medal and we held our well-earned trophy.
