Year 5 Football Tournament

On Wednesday some of the boy's took part in the first round of the Year 5 Football Tournament at Oakwood School. They had to play 3 short matches against Cunninghamhill, Oakwood and Mount Pleasant Lane.  They boys played extremely well against some tough opposition, winning 2 games and drawing the third. This meant we went through to finals as group winners.
Well done to all the boys.

Quicksticks Hockey Competition

On Thursday 3 teams of year 6 took part in the Quicksticks Hockey Tournament.  Each team played 4 or 5 games in their pool.  Each team had 6 players with any 4 on the pitch at one time.  The children took charge of where they would play and when to swap their players.  I was really proud of how they managed the teams and the support they gave each other.  When they could they went to support the other teams in their games.  All the teams did brilliantly in their pools with 2 teams going through to the last 16 and the other team coming third in their pool.
Unfortunately, or fortunately, our teams were drawn against each other.  It was a very tight match, but obviously there could only be one winner to go through to the quarter finals.   In the quarter finals after a hard fought match our team lost 2-1.
The children were a credit the school playing quite a few friendly games in the afternoon which they organised themselves.
Thanks to Mr Boswell and Mrs Pearce for helping on the day.
