Sporting event reports
On Monday night, ten children from years 5 and 6 took advantage of a dance workshop organised by Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School. When we arrived, the children were put into school groups and then the dance leader from HCCS explained the theme of the workshop. Children were asked to think about moving on, especially the transition from primary school to secondary. The various schools were taken to different rooms so there was plenty of room. The session started with moves suggested by the teacher but there was also time for the children to work on their own moves in small groups. There was plenty of time to practise the routines and refine them.
At the end of the session, all the schools returned to the small hall and showcased what they had created. All of the dances were performed to different contemporary tracks so each performance was completely original. Everyone was incredibly impressed with what the children managed to learn in such a short period of time and the standard of the performances.
The children worked well together and made the most of this opportunity. They were all really engaged and keen to hone their dance skills and it was also a good chance to meet some of their possible future teachers. Well done Isla, Kate, Gabriella, Finley, Scarlett-Rose, Sophie, Cole, Henry, Brianna and Emily and many thanks to parents for bringing them to this exciting event.
Year 3 and 4 football festival
A fantastic group of our Year 3 & 4 footballers took part in a football tournament on the 3G pitches at Holmes Chapel Comp on Wednesday. The boys played brilliantly, with some sweeping attacking play. They won all the games in their group, scoring over ten goals and only conceding one. I was impressed with the boys’ sportsmanship and behaviour. Well done to Charlie A, Harry D, Rory, Rupert, Jude, Elliot, Charlie M, Sydney and Harry A
Year 5 and 6 football tournament
On Monday, nine children from Year 6 visited Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School to take part in a football tournament with other local primary schools. This was an informal tournament with the emphasis on joining together to play football. The rain held off, thankfully, as we were on the AstroTurf pitches outside. Before darkness fell, all six matches were played, each lasting seven minutes before moving onto the next game – very quickly. The children coped admirably with the fast pace of the games, grabbing quick drinks between matches! The children showed excellent skills on the pitch and managed seven goals over the six games. Excellent defence ensured many potential goals from opposing teams were intercepted. The event organiser, commented at the end that it was fantastic to see children from the local schools together again playing football and that was the most important aspect of the event. Thank you very much to the parents who brought their children to the event and supported us from the side-lines. Well done to Mathilda, Myles, Dan, William, Scarlet, Lucas, Frank, Ollie, Richie from Year 6 for their hard work representing our school so well at the tournament.
HI-5 NETBALL FESTIVAL
On Wednesday, eight children from year 4 went to HCCS to take part in a Hi-5 festival. This was to give the children experience of taking part in a competition with no prizes and no pressure.
Luckily, the weather was kind to us and we were able to get through the planned matches outside. Even though this was a festival, all of the rules had to be followed and the children learnt a great deal about the sport through these matches. Our team all played extremely well and, whilst not on court, watched the games very carefully to learn from them. You could see how much progress the children were making as the tournament went on because they began to see how they could improve.
I was delighted with the overall result which wasn’t actually shared with the teams – we came second! As we only had a couple of practices beforehand, this was a super achievement!
Very well done to Louis, Noah, Charlie, Emily, Rosa, Kacey, Imogen and Tippi! Many thanks to parents and carers for bringing them and also for stopping to support our team – this is always very much appreciated.
HI-5 NETBALL Year 5 and 6
On Monday 4 October, eight children from years 5 and 6 went to Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School to take part in a Hi-5 (primary netball) tournament. There was torrential rain and a thunderstorm during the afternoon so the tournament had to be curtailed slightly and took place in the Sports Hall rather than outside as planned. This is always much more difficult as there are numerous lines on the various courts inside but the children took all of this in their stride. We played several matches with an amazing result. WE WON OUR LEAGUE. It was a very close call which came to goals against and goals for. With some excellent defending, none of the teams we played managed to score against us leaving us the winners. All of the children played extremely well and they worked together brilliantly as a team with everyone included and trying their very best with excellent results. Many thanks to the adults who brought their children and stayed to support our team and congratulations to Scarlett, Cole, Henry, Rose, Issy, Isla, Kate and Brianna – you were terrific and I was very proud of you.

On Monday in September 22 children from Year 3, 4,5 and 6 joined in the first sporting event of the school year. It was lovely to be back competing.
The Year 3 and 4 girls ran together and what a super race it was. All four runners came in looking good. Bethany finished 3rd and Emily A came in 6th and Tippi and Chloe completing in the top 25. Then it was the turn of the Year 3 and 4 boys. We had 7 boys running and they flew around the course all coming in quickly one behind the other. Our top position in this race was achieved by Harry A who came in 5th with Zander, Aiden, Louis, Harry D, Freddie, Sydney and Noah all coming in the top 20.
In the Year 5 and 6 race we entered six boys and four girls. The girls set off first and handled the two laps of the course with ease. Kate came in 7th, Emily 8th and Rose and Maddie were nipping at their heels. Last up were the boys - Laurie, Daniel, Ollie, Henry, Beau and Elliott, who is in Year 3. (Elliott was unable to complete the Year 3 / 4 race, so he joined the older boys). This was an extremely fast paced race with Laurie dominating the lead all the way and finishing ahead of the pack. What a performance these boys gave the crowds! The Year 5 and 6 boys won the trophy having scored the lowest collective points in their group.
Thank you everyone for participating and for the parent support. It was a lovely afternoon.
