Celebrating our children's

sporting achievements

Below are the results and reports from a range of competitions our children have taken part in during 2017/18. These include competitions within school (Intra-school), those where the children have competed for school (Inter-school) and also external competitions.

Personal Challenge (Level 0 Competition) 2017/2018

This year we have introduced the bleep test and speed bounce as personal challenges in P.E. Children will do both activities three times over the course of the year, each time trying to better their both result from the previous event, and a new target set based on their earlier score. 

Intra-school (Level 1 Competition) 2017/2018

A gloriously sunny Friday afternoon (20th April) saw KS2 participate in a Level 1 rounders competition at the sports field. After lots of exhilarating strike and field action the Yellow team emerged victorious, winning all three matches. With just one tournament to go the Level 1 table couldn't get much closer with the top three positions separated by just one point!
