Copeland Key Steps Gymnastics Final

A massive well done to all the children that represented Bookwell at the Copeland gymnastics final.    All children performed brilliantly and showed many of the school games values, especially when things didn't go to plan.  This year we took 28 children, our key steps 1 team, who qualified at the West Lakes Academy cluster event.  Then 2 key steps 2 (year 3/4) and keys steps 3 (year 5/6) teams.  It has been a pleasure watching their confidence grow as they have been training for this event and when you see the results it has paid off.  Our new competition leotards certainly helped them look and feel like gymnasts.  If you look in the video resource centre you can watch some of the routines that were filmed.

Wheelchair Basketball

We were inspired and enthused by Nat Pattinson who introduced us all to wheelchair basketball.  He told us how he had given up on life, when he was 16, after an accident and with his bone condition led to him being left in a wheelchair.  However his mum forced him out of the house to try wheelchair basketball which he said he hated to begin with.  It wasn't long before his mum's perseverance paid off and Nat started to enjoy the sport even if he wasn't any good at it.  Before long his training started to pay off and he is now competing at an international level and is a world champion.  He is certainly very passionate about his sport.  One aspect he likes is the fact that is able bodied friends can play it too. We think he demonstrates the School Games values. Key Stage 2 enjoyed trying it out - don't worry Nat will be back to let Key Stage 1 try it out in June.
