Tuesday 13th December

 

On Tuesday Mr Gunner and Mr Stinchcombe took 11 excited Year 6 children to London for the 8th Annual London Chess Classic. A wet and cold 7am start didn't dampen the spirits, nor did the 3 hour coach journey! The children had a wonderful time, meeting real chess grandmasters, competing in a chess tournament of their own against over 300 other children and watching real chess professionals in action. The whole experience was a day to remember and everyone picked up many new chess tips along the way. We can't wait for next year!!!

The first sporting event of the year started with a fantastic display of team work, co operation and determination. A mixture of Year 4, 5 and 6 girls attended the annual Girls Tag Rugby festival at Broadplain Rugby Club. Led by inspirational captain Holly Biggs, the girls improved in each game.

Tries were scored by Holly, Amelia, Layla and Isabelle but this was only down to the team work shown by all the girls. Emily also showed excellent defensive skills with Amelia and Lily also playing  in the Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby festival.

Today, eight Year 3 pupils went to David Lloyd Tennis Centre to play in a tennis festival against other local schools.

It was very exciting and they ended up coming second! Well done!

What a great week for sport it's been. On Tuesday our netball team continued their success at the Ashton Park Netball League where they won all their games. They will play again next week and look like they stand a good chance of getting into the finals. Keep up the good work!
Our Year 5/6 football team played at their final last night. Because they came second in the league, they were put in the top division for the final and had to face some really strong opponents. Everyone played really well, but particular mention must go to Sonny Page, who made some great saves, Moses Cardwell for effort and attitude and Dylan Carpenter for his support of others. We got into the fourth place play-off where the game ended 0-0. It went to penalties. As the team stood shoulder to shoulder watching, Keane Morgan and Kanye Christie held their nerve and scored, getting us a win! We are incredibly proud of all our footballers, not just for the high standard of football but also for the way they have supported each other as a team. Great job!
