Mini Athletics

Unfortunately the Mini Athletics at St Peters last Thursday had to be cancelled due to the weather.  However I have been offered a place at another meet at St John Fisher on Thursday 5th June, 3.30 - 5pm which I have accepted.  Hopefully the children who were going to attend St Peters will be able to make this new date, letters will be sent out on the Monday we return.  Additional year 5 children will be invited to cover for year 6 who are away.

St Albans Children Fun Run 2014

St Albans Children Fun Run

Primary School Challenge

Last year some of our children took part in the Children’s 1.5mile fun run with the support of the PTA.  This year we want to increase that number and attempt to win the Primary School Challenge awarded to the school with highest number of participants.   Parents will need to accompany any child under 8 years old.
All the children who take part will receive a medal and T-shirt.

It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible on the day.

City Cup Football Finals

Last Wednesday the boys played in the City Cup Football Finals at the Clarence Park Football Stadium.  We had progressed through several rounds, playing school teams from around St Albans to reach this stage, along with three other schools, so just to be there was a huge achievement by the boys and one they should be proud of.
On the evening the boys played Fleetville in the semi- final (the other semi was Park Street v Wheatfields).  The team played very well, but we went 2-0 down at half time.  In the second half we managed to contain them, but were unable to put away our chances.  The final score remained 2-0 to Fleetville. 
Fleetville went on to win the final, while we played Park Street in the 3rd and 4th playoff.  It was a great game and ended 2-2.

So that brings our season to an end...I hope the boys have enjoyed playing and parents have enjoyed watching when you have been able to.  I have been very proud of the boys, they have been a credit to the school and I hope they will continue to play.

Speed Stacking Competition

On Friday 9th May Jean, Callum, Jamie Trystan, Carys, Leila, Molly and Imogen represented the school at speed stacking. The children had a very short time to learn the 3,3,3 and 3,6,3 formation before starting their competition. All the children were actively involved throughout the morning and tried their best, recording a faster time with each attempt. They all behaved in an exemplary fashion and enjoyed the experience. We came 5th overall and Jamie came third in an individual event.

Year 6 Football Tournament Final

On Saturday morning our Year 6 Football Team took part in the Year 6 Football Tournament final.  They played 5  10 minute games against other schools from around St Albans, drawing the first match 0-0, winning 2 matches and loosing 2 matches.  This unfortunately meant we did not get through to the final stages.  The boys all played very well and showed good team spirit.  Thanks to all the parents who came along to support.

We are almost at the end of our season, just one more final on Thursday at Clarence Park!

Year 6 Football Tournament

On Wednesday the Year 6 football team took part in the first round of the year 6 football tournament.  The first game was against Cunninghamhill, which we won 2 -0.  We then played Mount Pleasant Lane, which was a very exciting game which we drew 1 - 1 after we scored in virtually the last kick of the game.  Our final game was against Windermere which we won 3- 0.  We came joint fisrt with Mount Pleasant Lane which means both schools go through to the finals on Saturday.  The boys played fantastically and deserve their place in the finals.
Thanks to Mr Ruddick who refereed one of the games.
