Ready, steady, go!

On Tuesday afternoon, as part of their enrichment programme, Year 6 discovered the sport of dog agility.

Mrs. Aston, who trains and competes with her dogs, gave a talk to the girls including information on how she trains the dogs and what happens at an agility show. The girls enjoyed watching videos and asking questions before moving down the hill to watch Parker and Willow in action.

The dogs were keen to show off their skills (and speed!) and Miss Dugdale had a turn at getting them around the course too. The girls were then able to meet and greet the dogs if they wanted to, with a few girls overcoming their fears and saying hello to Parker and Willow who were more than happy with all of the attention!

An 'unusual' afternoon in the sunshine that Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed and a possible interest for the future involving hard work and discipline.
