Sports events we have enjoyed
Children in Need Spotacular 2016
The children really enjoyed taking part in our spotty spotacular challenges! They worked in teams to score points for throwing bean bags at spots, completing a spotty trail while linked together as a team and jumping as far as they could between spots! The children looked amazing in their brightly coloured clothes and had a great time singing and dancing along to the music in between challenges. Thank you so much to everyone who was able to donate money towards such a fantastic cause!
Sponsored bike and scooter ride 2016
The children had great fun taking part in our sponsored bike and scooter ride. They were full of energy and impressed us with how long they were able to keep going around the track! Every child who took part received a special certificate and prizes were awarded to children from each class for effort, enthusiasm and perseverance! Thank you to all of our parents and carers for helping the children to bring their bikes and scooters to school and for helping to raise money for the Friends of Hillshott.
Sponsored Skip 2015
The children had a lot of fun taking part in our Sponsored Skip! We practised different skills needed for skipping and incorporated them in to different challenges. We also had a go at skipping in different ways with our friends. The children did a great job and managed to raise an amazing £400 for the British Heart Foundation! Thank you to everyone who kindly sponsored the children.

These children showed perseverance, they helped their friends and they celebrated other people’s achievements with smiles and clapping!
