The Academy’s week of sport got off to a flying start today – there were new events, new clans and most of all loads of enthusiasm!!
Thumb Wrestling – new event!!
We’ve all heard of arm wrestling, but how about thumb wrestling?
Thomas Glass in battle with……..?
She was the senior winner – it’s a mystery person behind a door……. it’s Sian Balmforth.
This thumb (below) made an appearance at the wrestling ring, but it was only a spectator. Next year perhaps Mr Hobden.
Our footballers were ready for action; here they are warming up.
Jess in goal and saves it!!

Boccia (Bit like bowls)
It was very quiet and tense in the main reception area as the teams rolled the small balls silently across the floor.
Well down George and Hugo you’re naturals!!
Here we’ve got Bradley, Luke and Ryan about to fire their arrows.
A fantastic first day… can’t wait till tomorrow.

Matt Lloyd – Head of P.E, hosted an opening ceremony presenting sports week.
Videos about the three Olympic values, Excellence, Respect and Friendship were presented to the pupils in an enthusiastic attempt to inspire pupils ready for the activities ahead.
A pledge was given to all pupils of the academy to choose the value of what they are going keep this week.
This was followed by a personalized Springfields Olympic oath.
An interactive Quiz took place in which pupils had a choice of two options, mostly two different dates of the Olympic Games or events around that time.
Finally, all pupils were divided into three separate clans – Hoy – Holmes – and Redgrave.
