Tag Rugby Year 5/6 @ Charnwood College-15.3.18
What amazing teamwork and spirit on a wet, wet, wet afternoon. The weather was not really on our side but did not let this affect their afternoon. The children arrived and the heavens opened!! They were soaked through before they even started but they did not lose heart. They played so well, cheered each other on, laughed their socks off and had a fantastic afternoon. At the end of a SATs mock week for the year 6 children I thought I would arrive to see wet, moody children but there was not a grumpy face in sight!! They were amazing representatives for the school and I was proud to be there with them. Well done!!
Tag Rugby Year 3/4 @ Charnwood College
It was a gorgeous spring afternoon at the college after a quick walk up there for the competition. For 3 children this was their first competition and they LOVED it!!! The smiles on their faces is the reason why we do it and give all of the children as many experiences as possible. Well done guys.
Cross Country @ Charnwood College 7.3.18
The children had a great afternoon and many of them achieved a personal best from last year. One year 6 young man was in the top 10 for his year group and will hopefully go through to the finals at Prestwold Hall. Well done to you all.
KS1 Festival @ Charnwood College 27.2.18
After an unfortunate cancellation the children finally got to take part in the KS1. A fun filled afternoon with challenges and huge successes. The children loved it and we enjoyed watching them try new things and achieve their best!!.
When the year 6 children are away the year 5 children will play!!!
Whilst the year 6's were on the residential the year 5 children worked their little socks off and tried their best at the swimming competition. Their determination was clear to see and they were so proud of themselves. This was a tough competition and they made us proud.
Another day and another festival. 28.11.17
This time for KS1
We went to Woodbrook Vale High School for a multi-skills festival.
The children loved it and there were a few funny moments, especially on the space hoppers!!
Duck, dodge and dive!!
Tonight was the first ever LPAP dodge ball competition.
This was the funniest competition I have EVER watched .
The boys were amazing and they were so proud of what they achieved.
They went through to the final, it went to sudden death and unfortunately the other team hit us first.
They were such good sportsmen and many showed real flair for this crazy sport.
I can't wait for the next one
Football, Football, Football!!! (30.10.17)
Tonight the year 3/4 boys fought well during 4 matches against Cobden, Rendell, Hathern and Stonebow. The drew their first match and won all of their other games. This saw them into the final against Stonebow. It was a close match as the light faded with a score of 1:0 to Stonebow. They were great sportsmen and gave 3 cheers to Stonebow.
Well done boys. What an achievement and what great team work!
Thank you parents for your support and to Mr Willbond for coming especially for the match.
Cross country time again!!
We had a great turn out again, on a cold Saturday morning, to run in the county cross country event. Even after a late start due to traffic this did not stop them.
We had some personal best places from our year 6 boys, some new runners, some regular and passionate runners and everyone dug deep to complete the challenging course. Every single child should be so proud of themselves of their achievement. A massive thank you to all of the parents and supporters. The children can't do it without you.
Thank you as always to Mrs Barber for organising this and it was great to see Mr Simmons (who jogged from his house to organise and cheer the kids on!!!)
Looking forward to the last one in NOVEMBER
Prestwold Hall-Cross Country-30.9.17
A fantastic turn out for the first cross country event of the year on a chilly but sunny Saturday morning. Well done to all of the children who were back again to achieve a personal best and a huge congratulations to all of the first time runners. You did a cracking job!!
Thanks to Mrs Barber and to all of the parents for all of their support.
The next event will be at the end of October-We look forward to seeing you there!!
Sports Leader Conference-25.9.17
It was a wet start to the day but 10 keen sports crew leaders shared 4 huge umbrellas and marched their way to the university. It was a fun packed day of sports and learning how to be the best sports crew leaders. They were itching to get back into school and share everything that they had learnt during the day. Watch this space for sports crew activities.
New school year, New sports year!!
Thursday 7th September was our first event of the year. 10 year 6 girls and boys took part in the first athletics festival at Thorpe Acre Junior School. The children had lots of fun, met some new people and represented their school. They did themselves and the school proud by being awarded third place out of 7 schools.
Well done Amber, Georgia, Jack P, Alfie B-S, Ethan D, Keisha, Lea-Marie, Liam S and Harry H. Unfortunately Isabelle was poorly but we look forward to having you on the team next time.
Wish us luck for Thursday 14th when we will have the year 5 children competing!!
