We bought two teams to the Badminton event at Mark hall and the 2 teams are through to the finals in January. All of the children learnt how to keep score of a badminton game and how to serve the correct way at school before we brought them to the competition. Our children done fantastically well & are now through to the Essex finals in January. We are so proud of the students and there will be a BADMINTON club at BURNT MILL SCHOOL EVERY MONDAY from 3.30-4.30 to practice with the big high ceilings so the shuttlecock does not hit the roof. If anyone is interested in going to start or improve their badminton skill, please come & get a letter off Miss Jordan, Mr Kirk or Miss Harris.
They had a lot of fun playing Badminton as it was something different to the usual sports that we played, they really enjoyed playing against other schools competitively , however they were a little bit nervous when playing. We got some great rally's from everyone at the festival and some of our games were so close. We both got into the semi finals, we won against both Freshwater's and Millwards , but the scores were so close in some of the games we won 15-14 so it was a great semi finals.
