The girls and boys were in different teams and had a front crawl, backstroke, breastroke, butterfly and a relay race. At the end of the day we all had a really good time.
On Wednesday 16th November Kara, Emily, Cora, Chelsea, Jack, Jack, Joe and Aidan went to a swimming gala in Camelford. Chelsea got 2nd in butterfly, Emily got 2nd in front crawl and I got 2nd in backstroke. Cora got 1st in breastroke. We got a 1st in our relay.
My favourite part was when we did the relay and when I said that it is so much better than school. It was fun on the way there when we were playing charade games in Mrs P's car. And after as well because all of the boys and I went back to my house and had hot chocolate and biscuits.
A huge THANK YOU to POLMORLA PASTIES for their generous donation of our new football team strip.

GIRLS FOOTBALL WEEK
On Friday 9th October 2015 all of the girls in our school celebrated Girls Football Week. The Bude Community Leisure coaches came to Marhamchurch to give us a lesson in football. Reception, Year 1 and 2 went first, followed by Year 3 and 4 and then Year 5 and 6. We learnt stuff like dribbling, passing and control of the ball. We also played ‘stop like trees’ which was good fun. Everyone enjoyed it and we hope that girls’ football becomes more popular. At the end all of the girls were awarded with certificates for taking part.
