Children who are gifted and talent in gymnastics were selected and represented the school in the Borough festivals. We entered the KS1 beginners, KS2 beginners and intermediate with a total of 15 children competing from Brettenham. All children performed to a high standard with KS1 coming 5th, KS2 beginners coming 4th and KS2 intermediates coming 1st in their competition. Congratulations to all those who competed.
Our newly formed netball team played against Fleecefield and Hazelbury in their first cluster matches of the season. The girls moved the ball across the court well and marked their players when they were defending. They won both matches with a 3-0 and 7-0 victory. Congratulations to those who competed and thank you to the supporters on the side lines.
The football team have played three matches so far, winning 2 and losing 1. The boys have started the season well and continue to train together in preparation for their next matches.
Unfortunately, it was not meant to be in the final for Brettenham losing to a very good Raglan side, 304 to 234 runs. With this said it was a huge achievement for Brettenham reaching their first cricket final. The boys have made massive progress over the last few years under the guidance of Mr Trayling and Mr Taylor.
A big well done to all of our athletes that took part in the borough competition. The children have put in a lot of hard work leading up to the event and really developed in short and long distance running, hurdles and relays. Congratulations to the winner Year 5 Paul and Fatima and Year 3 Apostle.

Congratulations to the team for finishing top of their league and remaining undefeated all season. The team also finished 2nd in a borough competition.
What a great effort from the Boccia team reaching the final against Raglan. It was a close game with the scores finishing 3-2 to Raglan.
Eight children from years 5 and 6 competed in the Borough Cross County at Forty Hall. They showed great stamina but unfortunately did not medal. Hopefully this experience will hold them in good stead for next year.
Well done to our year 6 mixed basketball team who came 2nd in the borough's tournament. It was the first time they had competed against other schools and played with great skill and showed brilliant team work.
