In the second half of the Autumn half term, we have continued to develop our PE skills with expert coaches. We had a fantastic assembly from The Manchester Storm Ice hockey club (see photos) they are also providing exciting floorball lessons to Year 4. Year 4 are also developing their football skills with coaches and players from Altrincham FC. Year 1 and 2 are loving their Zumba sessions provided by 'I Love Fitness MCR.' Year 6 continue to develop their hockey abilities with the help of a coach from Timperley Hockey club, as well as lacrosse from Timperley Lacrosse Club. This is helping them in their monthly inter school competitions.
