Children at Gentleshaw are really enjoying their P.E. lessons.
"Today we did an in house dodgeball tournament between house colours. We did it with Mr Huda and in the end Blue team came 4th, red came 3rd, green came 2nd and yellow came 1st! Well done everyone. It was very fun doing P.E. today with Mr Huda." Olivia
"We had 1 group playing another group. We had to dodge the balls from the other team. If the ball touched us we had to go sit on the bench as we were out. It was really fun!" Louis

Gentleshaw entered the Burntwood Cluster Swimming Gala at Burntwood Leisure Centre on Wednesday 20th July. The children from KS2 took part in a 25m race in either the front crawl, backstroke or breast stroke. Team Gentleshaw were amazing! Out of the 8 schools that took part Gentleshaw came 3rd which is brilliant. The trophy is in the main entrance on display.
Yet again the sun shone and everyone had such a great time taking part in events and spectating. The points will be collated and certificates will be given out to children on Friday in a special sports celebration assembly and a newsletter will be sent out with results on.
