Read here how we have got on throughout the year

Today (17/11/16), a Y3/4 cross country team attended the annual event now held at Mereside Primary School.  After early rain and wind looked like putting the competition in doubt, the weather brightened up and we arrived as the first team to walk a surprisingly not-to-wet-and-muddy course.    The Y4 boys were off first, with a very exciting race seeing Maddox pipped on the line into 2nd place.  Caiden was also not far behind in 6th place.  Y4 girls were next up, with Rose Kitcher finishing an amazing 4th for the second year in a row.  Y3 boys were 3rd up, followed by Y3 girls finishing the event.  It was lovely to see so much support for the team and enjoyment on faces!  A thoroughly enjoyable event, and I look forward to the Y5/6 event at the Sports Village next week.

Last Friday (11/11/16) a team of 6 attended the annual ‘Sportsability’ event, where we took part in predominantly track and field events.  Up against a range of local schools and those from North Shropshire, the team performed fantastically, and at the end of the event we were confident in our performances.  It turns out that we won overall, and will go ahead to represent Shrewsbury at the County Games in March!  Well done to all involved – great ambassadors for our school.

On Wednesday afternoon (02/11), a squad of 10 children from Y5 and Y6 attended the annual SchoolGames tag-rugby tournament, held at Shrewsbury Academy, formerly known as the Grange Secondary.  It was a beautiful Autumn afternoon weather-wise, with a low sun lighting up the playing fields; far better weather than the day before!

 As there were 16 teams registered to play in the competition, we went into an initial group stage, where we were scheduled to play games against Mereside, Trinity and Greenfields.  First up was Mereside, where we won a great game 4-2, with special mention to Josh Trow, who ran the entire length of the field with a breakaway goal to ensure our victory.  Next up was Trinity, and in a very up and down match score wise, the match finally finished a very close 3-3.  With other results in the group, this meant that our final game against Greenfields was going to decide whether we would progress or not.  Again, in a very close game, we were unfortunately edged out at the death 3-2, meaning that we finished in 3rd place, and unfortunately did not progress to the Quarter Final stage.

 Our team was a great credit to our school and to themselves, with clear school and sporting values on display of respect, teamwork and resilience!  Well done to all who took part.
