Year 3 and 4 Netball Development Event at Boston High School - Wednesday 2nd March
Some of our Year 3 and 4 children had the chance to have a go at netball at the Boston and District Netball Development Event on Wednesday 2nd March. Boston High School Sports Leaders put them through their paces, introducing them to passing, shooting and movement skills used in the sport of netball. Our children really enjoyed themselves and are keen to continue giving it a go when they get back to school!
Cross Country Saturday 4th February
Great way to start a weekend... Committed Hawthorn Tree Runners showcased their efforts this weekend at the Boston Primary Schools Cross Country Event. Our highest finishing boy was Charlie W, in 7th place and Nicole M, in 13th place. Amongst a large number of competitors of a mixed age range, all of our runners did extremely well. #Proud
Thanks to Mrs Tyler for being their to support the children on the day.
Both our Y5/6 and Y3/4 Sportshall Athletics Teams competed recently in their Boston and District School Sports Partnership Events! Y5/6 came 2nd in their event and Y3/4 came 4th! All children represented the school brilliantly, giving theirbest effortsand supporting one another tremendously!
Happy New Year!
The new year is a great time to think about the New things you want to try this year.
Trying a Club can bring lots of benefits.
My TOP 5 benefits are:
It is good to be ‘on the move’ always! It boosts metabolism and improves blood circulation. It also improves stamina and mental alertness. It improves energy levels - ACTIVE BODY; ACTIVE MIND
Learning to work well and together in a team from a young age can be very beneficial.
Taking part in group activities is a great way to make friends. You will meet each other regularly and have common purpose, and later, this gives you a sense of belonging.
4.STRESS-BUSTING/ BETTER MOOD
Even young children fall pray to stress at times! Apart from good sleep, extra curricular activities play a key role in busting this stress. They cool the mind down and remove the tension.
5.RAISE SELF ESTEEM
Doing things gives you a feeling of self-worth. Becoming more aware of your capabilities and gaining more exposure and experience, makes you more knowledgeable, versatile and independent in the process, which can all raise your self-esteem.

If you are a Year 6 and wish to apply for a Sports Ambassador role in school. Submit your application in to Mrs Ingamells by 18th October.
Sports Leadership Roles at Hawthorn Tree are valuable to enabling further opportunity in school, encouraging the power of pupil voice.
Mrs Ingamells asked staff members a question about their Active Travel to and from school.
"Why do you choose to travel actively to school and why would you encourage
others to do the same?"
Music Teacher, Mrs Cooper replied, "I enjoy the fresh air and exercise. It's definitely quicker than the car on the way home because of all the school traffic near where I live".
Mr Mitchell said,"I enjoy walking to and from school because it helps clear my mind. I am able to let my mind flow with all my worries and stresses and I can organise what I am doing in those issues and situations. It also keeps me exercised and fresh".
Can you think about what positive impact it would have on you?
"Regular" active travel means3 or more times a week
