Well done to the Y5/6 gymnastics teams who completed a training session with Sharon from Splitz Gym Club. They worked hard on their floor routines and their vaults. Good luck Wednesday!
Our Year 5/6 Girls’ Football Team took part in the Level 2 Tournament held at Bristol Grammar School on Monday 8th January 2018.
We played four matches and won our first two (4-0 against St Marks and then 3-0 against Locking). We drew a tough match against Portishead (0-0) and lost to a single goal against Wrington (0-1). Portishead were the eventual champions with Wrington finishing as runners up. The team played incredibly well and showed real determination and a great team-spirit, all in very cold conditions! The organiser of the tournament commented that he thought that they were the best overall team as there was such good quality football played by everybody. The team were a credit to our school and were a delight to work with. I hope that they all continue playing football and enjoying competitive sport in the future. Thank you to our parent helpers, Mrs Grafton and Mrs Bazell.
The team we took were fantastic and we managed to come 4th in one relay event out of 19 schools and Sunnie came 3rd in the Girls 25m Backstroke event out of 19 swimmers! Great team spirit and very competitive racing. We were very proud of their performance at this county event!
Our Year 5/6 football teams played a 7-a-side match against Worlebury School on Friday 17th November. The boys' team won 1-0 after playing a closely fought game, including a clearance off the line by Ryan S. This team will play their next qualifier against St Mark's School (date TBC). The girls' team were very strong and won 14-0. They progress straight to the North Somerset Schools Tournament which will be held in January. Congratulations to both teams and many thanks to the parents from both schools who supported the players. Thanks you also to Nadine from Future Starts who was a fair and consistent referee and to Matt Bazell, who worked with the teams to decide positions and tactics.
Here are some of our Year 6 pupils and lunchtime staff leading energetic dance routines on Funky Friday.
