With a packed out church,our annual harvest festival was a huge success. The children performed their songs, plays, poems and prayers beautifully. Job well done everybody!
Today, in incessant Pendoylan rain, St. Nicholas played two fabulous games of football. The Year 3 and 4’s played on the All Weather surface and after initially falling behind 3-1, stormed back to record a 5-4 victory. Ellis Haines scoring the winning goal, following a couple of crackers from Zane Scanlon. The children were overjoyed with their last minute win.
Final Score: Pendoylan 4 – 5 St. Nicholas
On the rain sodden grass, the Year 5&6 teams had a barnstorming start, surging ahead 3-0 within the first 5 minutes. There subsequently followed a period of over-confidence, indecision and lack of communication; meaning Pendoylan reached half time with a well deserved 5-3 lead. Following a passionate team talk from Coach Great and his assistant Mr. Parsons and a tactical switch of Mackenzie and Joe from striker to defender, the confidence and cohesion returned in the second half.
Great play on the wings by Mackenzie and Alex, was complimented by some rugged defending from Joe, Ben and Elliot and purposeful tracking back from Ieuan and Joshua. This allowed Jacob and Nicholas to score some cracking goals, against a tiring Pendoylan defence.
Final Score: Pendoylan 6 – 10 St. Nicholas
The Jolly baker demonstrated how to make a Chelsea bun. We worked in teams for this one. Many hands make light work. There were lots of jobs to do. Rolling out the dough, painting on the fat, sprinkling the currants, sugar and mixed spice. All before rolling the dough back int a sausage and cutting it into slices. Phew…….exhausting!
