Year 2 Rapid Fire Cricket - 24th June 2019
On Monday 24th June, 10 children from Year 2 went to OD Cuaco Cricket Club to take part a Year 2 Rapid Fire Cricket Competition to play against other Bromley schools. Sixteen children from Year 5 were also invited along to run the competition- officiate matches, record the results and support the younger children from all of the schools who were taking part. The Year 2 squad (Thomas, Elliot T, Josh H, Ava, Lily, Nina, Oliver, Chenyu, Mylo and Teddy) were extremely excited and had been counting down until the competition for days! In the morning, the team played four games and achieved a win against St Marks and Oak Lodge and a draw against Balgowan. Unfortunately Unicorn lost a tense match against Bickley by just 1 run! After lunch, the team played four more matches and won against St Marks, Oak Lodge and Bickley but lost a very close match against Balgowan. Congratulations to the team who achieved 2nd place overall! Many of the staff from the other schools commented on Unicorn’s team work and words of support and encouragement towards one another. A real team effort, well done! Well done also to the Year 5s who were commended on their behaviour. They demonstrated fantastic leadership and communication skills and were a credit to Unicorn!

Year 5/6 Gym Competition 18th March 2019
On Monday 18th March, 4 pupils took part in the Bromley Key Steps Gymnastics Competition at Bromley Valley Gymnastics Centre . It was a great opportunity to work on a real sprung floor and in front of a panel of judges. Ava, Elsie, Marshall and John had to take part in several training sessions with Miss Letchford in the weeks leading up to the competition. For the boys, who had never done gymnastics before, there was a lot to learn. On the day, the squad had to perform a floor routine, 12 body management moves and 2 vaults. A few small errors lost the team some points, however, their hard work and determination paid off as the team finished 6th (out of 12) overall! Well done Team Unicorn!

Sophie had a good race and finished 11th and Eva ran steadily with a sprint finish and achieved 13th place. In the final race were the Year 2 boys.
