Last Yoga Session of theYear

To celebrate the last yoga session of the year Sandra had the boys doing lots of new positions to the 12 Days of Christmas Song. A session of meditation with a chocolate button on your tongue was quite a challenge- some of us didn’t quite manage not to eat it!!

It was really tricky not to eat it!!

Aberdeen Snowsports June 2018

The second visit to Aberdeen Snowsports this school year was just as exciting as the first. The boys displayed great skills on skis- and there was some amazing acrobatics as they were trying to keep their balance whilst zooming down the slopes. Great fun was had by all Tubing – although its hard work getting the tubes up to the top of the slope – thanks to Kelly (Macs Mum) who encouraged the boys laziness by helping them carry their tubes!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boccia

On Wednesday 9th May the boys were invited to play Boccia at Sheddocksley Sports Centre.

After some practice of throwing the balls- its very difficult because you have to stay seated- the boys then split into teams to play against Anna Ritchie School from Peterhead and Westfield School from Fraserburgh.

The boys participated with enthusiasm and won most of their games- and most importantly socialised well with the members of the other teams. They cheered and clapped good shots no matter which team was throwing- great sportsmanship boys!!

The pictures are a bit yellow- due to the lighting in the hall but hopefully you will see how much the boys enjoyed this new sport.

Curling

After watching the experts during the Winter Olympics, the boys were very keen to have a go at curling. Once again the boys did Riverbank proud- listened to the instructors, tried their best, had fun and behaved very well. Good job boys!!

Tennis and Table Tennis at Westburn Centre

On 6th February we went along to the Westburn Centre to learn how to play table tennis and tennis.

Thanks to the wonderful coaches the boys had a lovely time and all improved their hand eye coordination trying to hit the ball!! The improvement over the session was amazing to see!!!

Next sport we’re going to try is curling on 23rd March- we are all excited about this and have been watching clips from the Winter Olympics to see how its done.

Expert coaching!

Bouncing the table tennis ball on the bat takes lots of concentration.
