After a long wait of nearly 5 years, our Year 5/6 mixed team took all 3 points last week against Hawthorns Primary in what was a truly thrilling game. It was neck and neck until we finally got a breakthrough down the left hand side in a slick move involving almost the entire team. We managed to keep out their last few efforts thanks to some excellent defending and brilliant goalkeeping. Well done!
Commonwealth Games Assembly
On Tuesday 11th July Matt Divall - Sports Manager for Commonwealth Games England came in to speak to the school about the Commonwealth Games 2022. He spoke to us about Team Englands “Pride” values of Performance (We give it our best everyday), Respect (We do it right and win well), Inspiration (For the nation and the Next Generation), Diversity (is our strength and we openly celebrate together) and Excellence (is our benchmark. We get better everyday.
Matt talked about the history of the games and what events they will be taking part in. We played a game of guessing the sports from a picture, the children enjoyed this and had lots of great guesses. The children were also told about 'Perry' the CWG Mascot who is very colourful. Matt also talked us thorough the CWG Values which are 'Humanity' 'Equality' and 'Destiny'
The children were inspired to be more active over the summer and all year long. Some children asked some interesting questions and many wanted to go and watch the games themselves.
Thankyou to Matt Divall for a great assembly.
Dynamo Cricket Festival
10 of us from year 6 were lucky enough to take part in a cricket tournament at Wokingham Cricket Club which was fun. Although we didn't get the best scores, we still came back to school happy. We thought we did better in our second and last games, We really enjoyed taking part.
RC, AH, AB, JR, LI, MV, MW, IK, HW - Year6
Eight of us from Year 5 were lucky enough to attend a hockey festival at Reading Hockey Club. We got to do lots of training exercises with some really nice coaches from the club and played matches at the end. We learned how to pass the ball accurately and pass around defenders. Playing on a real hockey pitch was also amazing! We also loved competing against other schools and even managed to win some games. We played really well and wish we could do it all over again!
BG, HH, MF, IG – Year 5
In the last week of term, our Year 6 boys finally got to play their first football game of 2022. They did a great job and scored first, although at the final whistle the game was a draw. The score was 2:2, a well contested game through an everchanging array of weather!
