Our girls’ team from Year 5 and 6 played another two matches in the local schools girls’ football league today. Mr Harris, who accompanied the girls to Wood End Primary, was again extremely impressed with how well they played – they get better every game they play! The first match against Crabtree Juniors resulted in a 0-0 draw and the second was a fantastic win 1-0 against St Nicholas Primary.
Well done to our team, you should be very proud of your achievements!

On Wednesday afternoon, our girls’ team from Year 5 and 6 played their next set of matches in the local schools girls’ football league, held at Sauncey Wood.
The girls played even better than the previous week, with huge amounts of energy and enthusiasm. They played 3 excellent matches, drawing 0-0 against both Wood End and Kimpton, and drawing 1-1 against Sauncey Wood. Well done to Elizabeth, Izzy, Jessie, Kelsi, Hannah, Amy, Ramneek, Asma and Edith.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who came along to support the girls. Thank you also to Mrs Housley and Mr Harris for accompanying the girls.

Some of our girls from Year 5 and 6 took part in the local schools girls football league, held at Crabtree Juniors, this afternoon. This was the first time the girls had played together as a team and although they didn’t win the two matches they played (against The Grove Juniors and St Dominic), they should feel incredibly proud of themselves for their performance and team spirit. Mr Harris, who kindly accompanied the girls, commented on their incredible enthusiasm and how supportive they were of each other. Well done to Elizabeth, Izzy, Jessie, Kelsi, Mia, Micheala, Hannah and Amy. It was also lovely to see the parental support which always helps the team!

I am delighted to announce that our school has been awarded the silver award for the Sainsbury’s sponsored ‘School Games’ awards. This is given to schools in relation to the variety and amount of sports provided to pupils throughout the school year.
It looks at the availability of extra curricula activities offered to all year groups and the leadership opportunities give in sports related roles. We, as a school, understand the importance of being active as part of a healthy lifestyle, and strongly encourage exercise for our pupils during the school week.
We are extremely pleased that this award acknowledges our school ethos.

Heavy rain forced the postponement of District Sports on Tuesday, but fortunately held off on yesterday afternoon to enable all local primary schools to gather at Sir John Lawes for the annual athletics track and field event. Some of our pupils from Years 3 to 6 took part and ran their socks off, not forgetting those in the field events who threw or jumped with all their effort! Well done to everyone who competed – you all did brilliantly and your behaviour was exemplary throughout. I was particularly impressed with the support you gave to other schools, particularly to those participants who weren’t the fastest in their races! We are so proud of you. You were fantastic ambassadors for our school.
Highlights of the evening were Marlena winning the Year 5 girls standing long jump, Jessie coming third in the Year 5 girls flat race final and the Y5 girls relay team being our only team to reach the final.
Thank you to Mrs Cross for organising and coaching the teams, and to Mrs Collins and Mrs Davenport who accompanied and supported the children with Mrs Cross and myself. I’m sure all parents and carers who came along to watch will agree that it was a really enjoyable evening.

After an incredibly hot few days, the rain made a brief attempt to put a dampener on our Sports Day today but failed miserably!
Everyone had a really fun morning, both the children participating and adults who came along to watch. Well done to Topaz who were the overall winners.
Thank you to our PTA who provided tea and coffee for parents and carers.
