The football team have just finished runners up in the Central Warwickshire Primary Schools 7 a-side tournament. This is a great achievement by the boys who played some super football. In the league stages they recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss and managed to progress to the knockout stage on goal difference. In the semi final the boys played very strong defensively against a impressive team from Radford Semele. The game was decided on a penalty towards the end of the second half, that Leo coolly stepped forwards and scored. The boys were rightly very proud to make it to the final. Unfortunately, in the final the very talented Budbroke team were just too strong for us.
Overall, a great morning of football enjoyed by the boys and supporting parents!
13 Year 6 children put on their running kit and bravely took part in a challenging cross country race at Priorsfield School on Saturday morning. This was the third race of the season and the most challenging yet - not helped by the constant rain! The course was over a 1.25 miles and included running across farm land and through 2 streams. Despite the conditions, the children all enjoyed the challenge and ran their hearts out. Well done to all of them - Tally, Caitlin, Toby, Jack M, Archie, Ned, Alek, Marcus, Louis, Callum, Dougie, Joe, and Jack B. Tally, Jack B and Toby all earned certificates for finishing ion the top 20 in their races.
Mrs Hague has just led a whole school Remembrance Assembly during which she reminded children of the reasons why we have a Remembrance Day and the significance of the poppy. The assembly included photographs, video clips and music to help the children reflect and remember those men and women who have lost their life in the first and second world wars and others since. Mr Iles, dressed in his uniform of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, Warwickshire, played the Last Post during our minute silence.
Today our football team qualified for the finals of the Central Area 7-aside Competition that will take place on the morning of Saturday 15th November. The boys played two qualifying matches against St Patricks' and Lillington Primary Schools which they won 5-0 and 6-0 respectively. Well done lads you played some great football!
On Monday a team of 6 girls and 5 boys from years 4 -6 represented the school in the Central Warwickshire School Games Modern Biathlon at Abbey Fields in Kenilworth. This involved all the competitors completing a timed 25m swim and 400m run. All our children competed brilliantly with maximum effort. We have just received the results - out of 15 teams the girls (Tally, Poppy, Lucy, Grace, Beth and Issy) finished in 2nd place and the boys (Harry, Dylan, Matty, Dougal and Sasha) finished in 7th place. Well done to all our athletes!
Year 5/6 have enjoyed a fantastic visit to the National Space Centre in Leicester. We learnt about many areas of space exploration to support our science work in school, and found answers to a lot of intriguing questions such as 'How fast does the International Space Centre orbit the earth?' (17150 mph, or 5 miles every second!) Particular highlights of the visit, as voted for by the children, were: the Planetarium 'astronaut' show; driving the Mars rover and looking at possible causes of the big bang.
We would also like to thank our fantastic parent helpers, without whom the visit would not have been possible.
