Y5 Predator Tournament

Our Year Five boys played very well during today’s Predator tournament at the Littledown Centre. Although the team did not qualify for the final, they won one game and drew two games. The children all supported each other throughout and can be proud of their inter-dependence and grit.

Year 6 Football Tournament

Year 6 represented the school with pride during the ‘Predator’ tournament at Littledown. Their teamwork was excellent and resulted in some extremely attractive football. Mr Pettefer was impressed with how the pupils organised themselves, including tactics and substitutions, having learned from the guidance he had previously provided. Although ultimately the team did not qualify for the final, they won one game, drew two and lost one. The leagues begins soon and this was a great reintroduction to competitive sport for the team.

 

Town Sports Success

This afternoon we were fortunate to have considerable success at the annual Town Sports event at King’s Park stadium. The children took part in a variety of events which included 60m, 75m, 150m, 600m, long jump and ball throw.

We were incredibly proud of each and every one of our children, who were a real credit to our academy. Of particular note were the successes of Ellie, who achieved a gold medal for the 600m event, and Frankie, who achieved a third place time in the 75m. This achievement means that these two children are now eligible for county events.

Netball

The Year 6 netball teams had a friendly with Kinson Primary this week and performed extremely well to win both matches. Olivia, captain of one of the teams, stated, “It was great that we were all working together and I was pleased to score from a long way out.” Harrison added, “It was great that everyone was playing fairly and that we were evenly matched. It was a tough game!”
