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 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.
The Year 6 sailors took the waters at Rockley Park again yesterday. They are now able to independently charter the waters and demonstrated outstanding inter-dependence throughout.
This afternoon teams from Manorside, Elm, Kings’s Park and Queen’s Park academies took part in an Ambitions Academies Trust hockey tournament. Our teams performed very well, winning the majority of their matches, and excellent team work was evident from all.
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!”
We are really looking forward to being joined in September by pupils from Year 2. To support this transition we have arranged several events, beginning with a joint sports session this week.
Children from Year 3 and Year 2 pupils from Queen’s Park Infant Academy worked exceedingly well together and it was great to start to get to know our future pupils!
Well done to all participants in the football matches yesterday at Manorside. The Year 3/4 team gained a win whilst the Year 5/6 team were beaten. All players showed grit and inter-dependence throughout. Many thanks to Manorside Academy for hosting and we look forward to our next encounter!
