Football Tournament at Dulwich College 2018
Our Year 5 football team played amazingly well! The competition was extremely high but the boys remained very positive.
They worked as a team discussing game plan and formation. The boys were well mannered and polite to all the other teams shaking hands and congratulating winners.

There were many activities in Sports Week, including Parkour (YR 1, YR 4 and YR 6), Athletics (most Year groups), Target Ball (YR 2), Herne Hill Velodrome (YR 5), and Sports Day (YR 3 – YR 6). It was a very exciting and energising week.
Year 5 Velodrome trip
We went on a bus to the Velodrome, hoping to have lots of fun. Expectations were a mixture of happy/excited and slightly anxious, with some wishing to improve their biking ability. Other sought improvements included lesser brake usage, mountain biking, and overall performance.
When track cycling began, it was a very slow start, with fast cyclists getting ‘Lap of Shame’. Not an actual lap but a (somewhat entertaining) standstill. Excited screams and/or exclamations could be heard. An interviewed cyclist reported almost crashing, but avoided a catastrophe by listening to instructions. A few mountain bikers could be seen at the top of the hill for a short moment. The mountain bikers enjoyed playing the game Manhunt.
A few cyclists had a good time sharpening their skills and knowledge of the bike, including changing gears, pedalling correctly, keeping focused, and traffic light situations. I, being unable to take part, was able to help by assisting the coach in training exercises.
I was lucky enough to get an interview (and autograph) from Boru, the inside segment training coach. His father was a cyclist, so when Boru was 10, he took him down to Herne Hill Velodrome. He enjoyed it and has been cycling ever since. When he was 16 he became a Young Volunteers coach at the Velodrome. He is now 18 and a full coach. Boru was very popular with his students.
Almost everyone had a really great time and were impressed with how it turned out, and I said that I would go to ride when I got the chance. I think I speak for everyone when I say that it was a day to remember.
