Year 5 and 6 Badminton Once they had registered, the Grove Wood badminton players completed a warm up. They all knew that the warm-up helped as Mr Seaman was giving them useful tips. Everyone was really excited. The first game was won by Hannah D with her nice serves. Hope was next. Bella, Isabelle, Ruby and Fran all won their matches. In the semi-final, Fran played a strong game against Edward Francis but sadly did not win and Bella came second overall. Well done girls! Izzy, Hope, Hannah and Ruby found the matches fun and amazing but competitive and liked every part of it! Fran felt very proud when she won her matches.

Mr Banks recently took his table tennis champions to Harlow Table Tennis Centre to compete in the Essex School Games Table Tennis Finals. It was a tremendous experience for the children as there were players of all ages representing their districts, and the standard of play was impressive to watch. The children all competed with determination and confidence. In the end the girls came third overall and the boys finished fourth. Well done to all those involved.
