My hobby interest, by Josh.

My hobby is boxing. I take part twice a week in Wotton. I have been training for a month. I really enjoy it.

Josh-boxing

In boxing you can punch your opponent for as long as you are sparing. When you are training you have to work hard on footwork otherwise if you get punched you will fall over. Fitness is key in boxing because otherwise you won’t be able to run around and punch the person you are sparing. You will get extra points for punching people in the face. Also if you block the punch you will still get points because you’re not letting them hit you. In boxing you can’t punch them if they are on the ground.

South Cerney 2017! By Freddie.

Firstly, after all the schools got there we got grouped up with all the schools in the Tyndale cluster and there were 6 schools including Nibley! In my group there was: Fred, Josh, Freddy, Archie, Mackie, Archie, Hazel, Elian and me.

There were five different activities; raft building, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and paddle boarding. In our group we did raft building 1st, but we had to go to an island on a speed boat. At the end of the rafting we had to do heads, shoulders, knees and jump! Whilst standing on two logs. Even better, none of us fell in apart from when we jumped in!

Then we did paddle boarding which was amazing because at the end of paddle boarding we got to take down our instructor off his board as he pushed Josh of his board. I jumped on his back whilst Josh grabbed his legs for dear life!

At the end of the day we were all soaking but it seemed like we had the best day of our lives (and that was a great feeling!)

Bouncy balls

The bouncy balls are all different .Some are small, some are big and all of the patterns are different, like our personalities. They are one of the most  favourite things here .

Tennis

Tennis is good. If you are alone you can do it against the wall. Our tennis rackets are really good.

SCOOPERS

Scoopers are really fun because they are so good for playing Ice Cream Shop. In the picture I caught it on my first time! You can have a really good time even if you are in Year Six.

 

Bouncy hoppers

Bouncy hoppers are really good if you’re good at jumping and if you have a tournament coming up.

South Cerney Water Park 2017! By Fred.

Firstly, when we got there we waited for all the schools to arrive. Then we got grouped up with other schools in the Tyndale Cluster (6 schools including North Nibley).

It was on the 19th of September 2017! We took part in Raft Building, Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, Canoeing and Sailing. We worked in groups of three from three different schools. The trip was all day from 9.00 a.m. when we left school to 4.00 p.m. when we left South Cerney. In my group were Freddie, Mackie, Josh Freddy, Archie, Archie, Hazel, Elian and I. There was an island in the middle of the lake that we made our rafts on. We went on a speed boat to get to the island and once we made are raft we had to go around the island. We had to go around the island without sinking and we managed to not sink. When we were on the raft we to do head, shoulders, knees and toes near were we put we put the raft in the water we had to do Head, shoulders, knees and JUMP! No one managed to fall off though when we had to jump and that was disappointing. After that we jumped into the water to get the raft onto the island and that’s the only way we got wet when we were doing raft building.  When we were eating lunch there were three ducks that tried to eat our food but we didn’t let them, there was a swan with three cygnets. After lunch we went paddle boarding .Once we got onto our boards in the water we had to get out into the lake so we could stand up and you had to move your hands up the paddle to paddle standing up. But then it would be harder to balance on the board and most of the time you would fall off. After that we paddled to a place where we played a game of Rounders. Then we had to go back to land but in the way we had to get are instructor of his board and get him in the water but it took longer than we thought and once we got him in the water he got every single one of us wet and got me off my board twice. When the instructor was showing us how use the paddle board even know I know how to them but as he was talking an army plane flew over us and it looked like it just took off and a group of other people from are school and they were sailing and we watched the people doing a race of kayaking and canoeing.   The journey was around 45 minutes there and 45 minutes back to school. We got back home at 4:15 to 4:30 and I would recommend South Cerney to anyone who likes paddle boarding, Canoeing, kayaking, raft building and sailing. On the way back we played a game of top trumps and it took most of the trip back to school.

South Cerney Water Park 2017 By Arthur

As North Nibley’s Year 6 got there we were waiting for the other schools to arrive. After they got here Mr Batchelor announced who was in each group. I was doing Kayaking for my first activity with other people in other schools, it was very exciting to do Kayaking on my own because I had to be incredibly safe because I didn’t want to fall in the freezing water.

South-Cerney-2017-002After that, we had lunch and got into some new clothes because we were very wet. Then I was getting my lunch bag but on the way we had met 3 ducks walking past all of the year 6. After a few more minutes, we had a photograph taken to show how we felt at South Cerney. Also I felt socking, very wet, very tired but I enjoyed the fun activity that we did.

The next activity was building a raft with: 6 barrels; 4 long wooden poles; 3 short wooden poles and rope. When our team were building the raft we learnt how to tie a reef knot, then we put the barrels under the wooden poles. After that we climbed onto the raft and paddled across the lake around the little island until we had to jump into the water and bring the raft to the island.

When we got to shore we were so lucky because we could jump into the water off the jetty. After that we got dressed into clean clothes in order to go back to school. Then we went outside to wait for the other year 6s. Mrs Shepherded was handing out sweets for the year 6. Later we went into Fred’s mum’s car with Ruby, Bea, Sophie, Georgia, Fred and Arthur to the school. In the car Fred and I were crushed by our own bags so we had no space at all. Then we got to school, we went into the class and then we went home to our families.

At the end of the rafting we had to do an activity called heads, shoulders, knees and jump! , whilst standing on two logs. Even better, none of us fell in, apart from when we jumped in!

Then we did paddle boarding which was amazing because at the end of paddle boarding lesson we got to knock our instructor off his board. As he pushed Josh off his board I jumped on his back and Josh grabbed hold of his legs for dear life!
