Archery Club

Every Tuesday for the past 6 weeks, the children have been attending archery club and have really enjoyed it. For the first 15 minutes they have been doing skills, like shooting at targets. Then the next 30 minutes a game, which changes every week. For the last 15 minutes they play a maths game. In this game they play against another person, the instructor calls out a time table the first one that gets the answer right, has to shoot the other person. The winners go to the right side and the unlucky ones go to the left .They do this until 2 people are remaining .

t.a.a.rget Archery Workshop

On Monday and Tuesday this week we were very fortunate because we had an archery workshop all afternoon. We did lots of fun archery activities. We did some training where we had to shoot the target and we even got to shoot the trainer. As well as this we played a game where we had to shoot each other and hit the targets.

We are holding an archery after school club for six weeks, every Tuesday from the 28th of April, with no cost to parents. The places have all been taken, sorry for any disappointment.

All of the children have loved doing archery, and the children who have signed up for the club, are all very excited.
