Year 2 cricket vs Wetherby
14 year 2s travelled with great excitement to the Park Club to take on Wetherby in two cricket games. Each player would bat in a pair for two overs and every child would bowl one over so everyone had a fair opportunity. Team 1 played some positive cricket, Kam batting nicely and Dom bowling accurately, however Wetherby came out 6 run winners in a tight and evenly matched contest. Team 2 loved the experience, Henry T and Henry VSF batted brilliantly and Zoe had an outstanding all round game, batting well and bowling with speed and accuracy. Team 2 lost by 6 runs in another even contest.

Inter-house Swimming Gala
On Thursday 25th April, KS2 took part in the annual Inter-house Swimming Gala which took place at Kensington Leisure Centre. There were 57 races including one house relay. Each child swam front crawl, back stroke and breast stroke to win points for their house. The standard of the swimming was consistently strong, along with the competitive nature of all the houses, this made for a brilliant atmosphere and some intriguing races. The gala was wrapped up with a 4x freestyle relay, Portobello coming out winners. Overall the results were extremely close, however, Portobello won the 2019 Chepstow House Inter-house Swimming Gala. Well done to all children. Roll on 2020!
