On Wednesday 8th February 2017 our Year 5 and 6 netball team played two matches at East Grinstead Sports Club. Every member of the team showed fantastic teamwork and worked well together to achieve two wins! We won 4-2 against Halsford Park and 7-4 against West Hoathly. Well done to all the team who showed respect and sportsmanship to the other teams and managed to score some fantastic goals. Their dedication and hard work in training has certainly paid off!
On Wednesday evening 24 Yr 5 and 6 athletes travelled to Sackville School for our annual Eveque Indoor Sports Hall competition. 9 schools participated over two days, with 12 different events available for the pupils to compete in. Our team performed magnificently, accumulating enough points to achieve a 2nd place on the night, and a superb 3rd place overall. Charlotte Conn set a brave example, competing in 2 of the longest running events back-to-back!
Our increased PE funding has allowed us to purchase Eveque indoor sports hall equipment allowing KS2 to take part in decathlon events indoors during the wet winter months. Thank you also goes to all the adults who helped us transport the athletes to the competition!
Our football squads played their first league matches of the year at East Grinstead Sports club in chilly conditions this week, but we came up against some hot competition!
The A team played Turners Hill first, with Aaron Clancy scoring two goals in the first half. Turners Hill defended bravely in the second half so the score remained at 2-0 for a decisive victory. The B team played next, and after a slight change of fixture, challenged Felbridge for the league points. The team worked really well together shifting the ball out of defence quickly allowing our midfielders and strikers to attack. Aaron B, Thomas S, Oliver S and Cameron K all scored resulting in a superb 4-0 victory.
Then the A team faced regular league winners, the mighty Halsford Park. The match started with Halsford Park under pressure but they rallied and had some well placed shots on goal. Alex V in goal managed the threat well, and soon we were on the attack. Excellent team pressure gave Aaron C the chance to work some magic, and his wonder strike on goal gave us a fabulous 1-0 victory.Thank you to all the adults who supported the team. Mr Barlow's player of the night is Aaron Clancy for his hard work in all areas of the pitch and superb strike on goal.
