I travelled across to Drachten in the Netherlands on Wednesday 27th June. I left Norwich at 6am and travelled by coach and ferry, arriving at 10pm. We camped outside the sportshall in tents and slept on army beds which I found reasonably comfortable!
Thursday consisted of the official opening ceremony where teams were in two minds whether to run onto the pitch or walk when their names were announced. England walked on whereas Catalonia ran on. Afterwards, all the countries took part in a joint training session which was led by an experienced Netherlands coach who taught us some important skills needed to play Korfball.
This summer, your challenge is to read a book – or several books – that you really enjoy.
Reading is an amazing way to spend some of the summer holiday – it can be relaxing, satisfying, rewarding (and it’s great for your ability to learn).
In this downloadable booklet, write down the books that you are challenging yourself to read. You can also pick up a copy of the booklet from the library.
Share this information with your parents – they might even be interested in reading with you, or even sponsoring you.
When you come back to school, hand in your booklet to the school library – and join in the Autumn book groups if you like.
