Girls Football Finals

What a half term of football we have had!! Well done to all the girls in the football team – Lilly, Ciara, Joy, Lily, Tinashe, Jasmine and Jess W – who have put their heart and soul into every match only conceding 3 goals in 5 matches whilst scoring 20 goals in the same 5 games. Thank you to Grace and Freya who joined us at the final as subs, you were crucial to our success too.

On Wednesday afternoon, we went to Parmiters school to take part in the finals. Out of 18 teams across the partnership we were 1 of 8 at the finals ! We won the first match by 3 goals and then drew 2 matches making us second in our draw. We then played and won the semi final by penalties! WE GOT THROUGH TO THE FINAL!!!!

In the final the girls played the best and quickest football that they could muster from the energy levels left after 5 games in one afternoon. They were amazing and worked sooo hard as a team, all the parents, Mrs Coe and Mr Cassen were so proud of their achievement. However,the score line ended at 0-0 and again went to penalties. Unfortunately, The Russell school won 2-1 which felt really harsh as we had put in so much effort for it to be over in seconds! We were a little deflated but became super proud of our achievement in being second out of eighteen.


You are amazing!!

KS2 Dodgeball Event

Well done to KS2 for a super dodgeball event, great enthusiasm and enjoyment was shown by all. Thank you very much to the sports council for refereeing so well and helping the younger team members. We left the field alone- Y5/6 played on KS2 playground, Y3/4 in the hall and outside on KS1 playground. A great morning had by all! The photos below illustrate this.

Y5 cross country county run!

On Saturday 24th March at 10am, five Y5’s competed in the county final at Cassiobury park. It was rather damp and cold but we were very excited to take part. There were children who were part of competitive running clubs there so tension was high! They ran with great confidence and did themselves proud. Well done Zoe, Toby, Ben C, Kyle and Jacob. 

Jacob came second in the boys race and Ben C, Toby and Kyle came in the twenties out of fifty boys. Well done all! We are very proud!

A super well done to Zoe, our only girl representative, who came in the twenties out of fifty girls. Well done! 

English in Larch

This week we have been looking at newspapers. We discussed where we find them, who reads them and had a discussion about why we read newspapers. We then worked in pairs to look at articles in different newspapers. We discussed what features we had found for a newspaper article.
