Alton Webteam: February 2017
Five of our Junior Section boys had a good time competing with boys from other Junior Sections at the Battalion Indoor Team Games event in Fleet. They did well and had fun in the relay challenges, getting better as the afternoon wore on, gaining a Third Place Certificate for their efforts. All boys played well in the 5-a-side football matches against teams with more players to choose from. They finished fourth and showed their individual skills and teamwork has improved since the last tournament.
On Friday evenings preparations for the upcoming Competitions Day on 25th March are well underway. Practice for the figure-marching has been important with a "figure of eight" being one of the required movements which is new to all the boys. The playscript telling of the Healing of the Centurion's Servant has been read through. The boys have been working on their artwork that will illustrate a healing miracle of Jesus. The song has yet to be learnt but the boys enjoy singing so it should be a good performance on the day.
Alongside all this, groups of boys have been working on their menu planning and food preparation. So far all have planned, made, photographed and eaten (at home) their salad starter. One group has chosen their toppings to go on their pizza main course and will be making these at the next meeting.
During the month we were very pleased to have two boys come along to find out more about Juniors and we are looking forward to both of them hopefully becoming members of the Section.
