Sports Reports 2017-2018

Year 6 vs Parents 

We were incredibly lucky with the weather for the Year 6 vs Parents Football and Hockey matches on Wednesday 21st March. The sun was shining which meant the whole school were able to come out and show support for the Year 6s. Both games were enjoyable and friendly whilst giving the children enough of a competitive element. The final results were: the parents won the football 7-5 and they also won the netball 8-6. A big thank you to all the parents that found the time to make this fixture possible.

KS2 Spring House Matches

On Wednesday 21st March we had our Spring House Matches. The children had already met in their houses and decided whether they were going to play in the tag rugby or netball. This was a lovely morning and all KS2 children participated, demonstrating some of the skills they have learnt during their PE lessons this term.

The House Captains competently managed their teams, keeping them more even than the Autumn Term matches. A big thank you to our Sports Leaders who worked hard taking on many roles including: time keeping, scoring and referring the games. 

 

Tag Rugby

We played this as a mixed 7-a-side tournament. Some of the younger children were slightly apprehensive but they were well looked after by the Year 5s and 6s who showed great leadership skills.

Weald Alternative Sports Festival 

On Thursday 15th March, 10 children from Year 5 and 6 attended  The Weald Alternative Sports Event which was aimed at inspiring them through alternative sports. This was an opportunity to try a variety of new sports including: Ultimate Frisbee, Fencing, Kinball, Archery, Wheelchair football and Disc Golf. It was a fantastic morning and fun was had by all. Thank you to our lovely parent volunteers.

Horsham District Tag Rugby Tournament
On Tuesday 12th March, we competed in the Horsham District Tag Rugby Tournament which was organised by Collyers and held at Horsham Rugby Club. For the first part of the afternoon, the 25 teams were split into four groups and all played each other. The best two teams from each group then qualifed for the quarter finals. 
Having not played together as a team, we had a slow and ended up loosing our first game to Leechpool 5-4 (Fraser x2, Seb 1 and Bertie 1). The team soon found wining form, beating Arunside 5-0 (Seb x 2, Fraser x 2 and Will 1). Playing well as a team with good participation from Keeley and Tannah who both grew in confidence, we beat Greenway's 3rd team 5-2 (Bertie 1, Will x2 and Fraser 2). We also won the 4th game against Southwater's 3rd team 3-0. Although all three tries were scored by Will, this was a great team effort and the team were starting to use the width of the pitch. Annoyingly, we drew the next game against Shelley's 2nd team 3-3 (Seb, Will and Fraser). In the final game of the group stages, we beat Ashurst 2-0 with Bertie and Dexter scoring the tries. 
Unfortunately we came 3rd in our group, missing out on the quarter finals by 1 point. 
A huge congratulations to all those who participated and a big thank you to our lovely parents who made this even possible. 
Horsham District Primary Schools' Cross Country
 
On Thursday 22nd February, 12 children competed in the Horsham District Primary Schools's Cross Country which was held at Christ's Hospital. 21 schools took part and each race (girls and boys separate) were approximately 1200m. 
All of our children ran really well but a particular mention to Fraser W who finished 2nd and has been selected to represent the school at County Finals. Unfortunately there was a technical problem in the girls race which meant that not all of the children got placed.  
A big thank you to our lovely parents that supported us and made it possible. 
 
Team results to follow.

KS2 Hockey v Warnham 

On 31st January, Loxwood School were hosts to Warnham for our hockey game. This was a fantastic opportunity for the hockey club children to put their skills into practice in a game situation. 

The A team quickly found their positions and adapted to playing with wooden sticks for the first time. As they became more aware of not only their positions but the support from other team mates, they grabbed a very well taken goal. We continued to impress, but we missed several good scoring opportunities, ending the game 1-0. 

The B team started little like bees around a honey pot, until they became aware of the need to play in specific positions. Warnham went ahead with a few very well taken goals. During the 2nd half, Loxwood began to apply pressure and were able to score twice with goals from Lucas and Ella. Despite the best efforts from many members of the team, the score was 2-5.

KS2 Autumn House Matches

 

On Wednesday 22nd November we had our Autumn House Matches. The children had already met in their houses and decided whether they were going to play in the hockey or the football. This was a lovely morning and all KS2 children participated, demonstrating some of the skills they have learnt during their PE lessons this term.

Well done to our new House Captains who had a tough role, managing their teams and trying to keep them as even as possible. 

This was also our first opportunity to fully utilise our Sports Leaders. They worked really hard and took on many roles including time keeping, scoring and referring the games. 

 

Hockey

We played this as a mixed 6-a-side tournament. Due to the lack of goals in the first game, we decided to introduce zones to the children to encourage them to use the space and free up the pitch a bit. Not only did this allow teams to score goals but it also improved the passing too.

U-KS2 Horsham District Football Tournament (meet 1/2)
 
On Friday 29th September, we took part in the Horsham District Football Tournament. This league was a 7-a-side tournament which gave us little preparation time as it was so early in the season. Like last year, we faced Plaistow and Kirdford in the first game and drew 0-0.  We then had a break before playing Billingshurst C in our second game. 
We soon found our feet and won this game 5-0 with goals from Will P, Dexter, Lilly and two from Tom. The team played much better as a team and were passing the ball around. 
We faced tough competition in our 3rd game and lost 3-0 to St Peter's Cowfold. 
After another break we then played St Mary's Horsham in our last game and drew 0-0. 
 
This meant we finished the evening on 12 points, leaving us in 6th place. 
 
A huge thank you to Mr Percy who helped coach and to all the parents who supported on the sideline.

L-KS2 Horsham District Football Tournament (meet 1/2)
On Friday 6th October, we took part in the Horsham District Football Tournament. 
This is the first time that the Year 3 and 4 children have played together in a team. The  children all played amazingly and were able to include skills they have picked up during their football sessions with Mr Green. Not only did the children listen to instructions from the side line but they held their positions and passed appropriately. 
We faced Plaistow and Kirdford in our first game and annoyingly, let in an early goal. We managed to sort ourselves out and Sam equalised in the second half, ensuring a draw. Next, we faced Billingshust C and thanks to Sam's goal, we won 1-0. Our 3rd game against Kingslea B, we won more convincingly (3-0) but it was still Sam scoring our goals. Finally, in our last game of the day,against St Robert Southwell, Will managed to find the back of the net and we drew 1-1. This meant we remained unbeaten going into the second stage of the tournament in a fortnights time. 
 
A huge thank you to the parents who supported and helped coach from the side-lines.

L-KS2 Multiskills at The Weald
On Wednesday 18th October, all of Year 3 went to The Weald to compete in a multiskills tournament against our locality schools. 
This was a lovely afternoon whereby the children participated in a range of activities to improve their agility and coordination whilst competing against other children. 
All the children behaved impeccably. A huge thank you to the parents who made this trip possible.
