Ice Skating Reward

Ice Skating Reward

As a reward for attendance and good sportsmanship at the Thursday lunchtime Sports Club, some of our Key Stage 3 students were delighted to be selected to attend the end of term reward trip. The Sports Club members (all wearing Christmas jumpers!) were driven by minibus to ‘Windsor on Ice’ at Alexandra Gardens in Windsor.

The open-air venue was beautifully decorated, with festive decorations and lights, and to add to the cheery atmosphere, Christmas songs were playing throughout our visit. The students and the accompanying GMS staff shared a vast spectrum of ability between them. Most of the students were relieved to be able to use the penguin and snowman skating aids available, and after lots of practice and a few bumps and bruises (to pride), most of the students managed to navigate their way around the rink unaided.

Our session lasted for an hour, and the skaters, both able and less able, enjoyed every moment. They all persevered to master this difficult sport and some surprised themselves by letting go of the side and skating (displaying some interesting techniques!) around the perimeter of the rink.

A wonderful end to the term and a great way to get staff and students into the festive mood. We look forward to the next reward trip at the end of the spring term.
