U-KS2 Horsham District Tag Rugby

On Tuesday 26th March, some Year 5 & 6 children competed in the Horsham District Tag-Rugby Tournament which was held at Horsham Rugby Club.

We were split into four groups for first part of the afternoon. We drew our first game 4-4 against Greenway. We then went on to win our next four games against Steyning, Arunside B, Shelly and Kingslea B.

Consequently we progressed through to the semi-finals against Northholmes A. Frustratingly we conceded a try as the whistle went which meant we lost the game 4-3, finishing the tournament 3rd.  

A huge congratulations to all those who played and big thank you to the parents for transporting us.

Year 2 Horsham District Football Matchplay Festival

This was a wonderful opportunity for some of the Year 2 children to compete in a friendly tournament against other schools. Mr Green had helped prepare them for the event, but it was the first time they had played as a team. Although they lost all of their games, the children made huge progress improving their team work and conceding fewer goals as the tournament went on. Well done to Jordan for his great goal keeping and to Arthur for his continuous effort.

A big thank you to the parents who made this event possible.

Year 6 vs Parents 

We were incredibly lucky with the weather for the Year 6 vs Parents Football and Hockey matches on Wednesday 20th March and 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 netball 10-7 and a 5-5 draw for the football. 

A big thank you to all the parents that found the time to make this fixture possible.

KS2 Spring House Matches

On Wednesday 20th 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.

KS2 Sports for Champions Athlete Visit

On Wednesday 13th March, KS2 had a visit from Ezekiel Ewulo who is an international long jumper who came to inspire and motivate the children. During the assembly, he shared his journey into sports, and brought some of his medals to share with us. He gave us a long jump demonstration and also allowed us to ask some questions. Afterwards, each class took part in the Sponsored Fitness Circuit Challenge.

“It was really fun meeting a real athlete.” Sam O

 “I liked learning how to do a leg drive because it will help me to run faster.” Billy-Ray

“I was really impressed when we watched the video. I couldn’t believe someone can jump that far!” Harry

“I really enjoyed learning about his training and I thought the circuit challenge was really tricky.” Holly

L-KS2 Horsham District Primary Schools Introductory Tag Rugby Festival

On Tuesday 5th March, we participated in the HD Primary Schools Introductory Tag Rugby Festival which was hosted by Collyer’s Sports Leaders.

This was an opportunity for children to participate in a fun, friendly festival where results were not published We were able to enter two teams enabling 20 children to play.

It was a fantastic afternoon and after a lot of encouragement and instruction from the side-lines, the children soon got the hang of it and improved very quickly. Both teams worked well together but particular mentions go to Ben, Lucas, Osman and Jayden who scored the majority of our tries and to Isabella and Billy-Ray who were fantastic at tagging.

A huge thank you to our parent helpers who made this event possible.

On Thursday 14th February 2019, 12 children competed in the Horsham District Primary Schools’ Cross Country Tournament which was held at Christ’s Hospital. Twenty One schools took part and each race (girls and boys separate) was approximately 1200m. 

All of our children ran really well but a particular mention to William Fielden who finished 25th and Emily Bates who finished 38th.

A big thank you to our lovely parents who supported us and made it possible.

This was a lovely morning and all KS2 children participated, demonstrating some of the skills they have learnt during their PE lessons this term.

This was also our first opportunity to fully utilise our new House Captains and Sports Leaders. The House Captains managed their teams and tried to keep them as even as possible. The Sports Leaders worked really hard, taking on many roles including time keeping, scoring and referring the games.

L-KS2 Horsham District Football Tournament (meet 2/2)

On Friday 19th October, we took part in our final meeting of the Horsham District Football Tournament. After the first meeting, we stood in pole position at the start with a four point lead. Unfortunately we let in a early goal, loosing our first game against Castlewood. In the next game we managed to keep a clean sheet but were unable to score, drawing 0-0 to St Mary's. We managed our second draw of the evening against St Robert Southwell (1-1). Unfortunately it wasn't enough to keep us at the top of the table and we finished the tournament in 2nd place. A huge thank you to all the parents who came out to support us and well done to all the children involved.

L-KS2 Multiskills at The Weald
On Wednesday 17th October, all of Year 3 went to The Weald to compete in a multiskills tournament against our locality schools.
Due to the weather, we were in the hall which meant being in a noisy, confined space with lots of other children. However, all our children were well behaved and were able to participate in a range of activities to improve their agility and coordination whilst competing against other children.
A huge thank you to the parents who made this trip possible. 

U-KS2 Horsham District Football Tournament (meet 2/2)

On Friday 12th October, we took part in our second meeting of the Horsham District Football Tournament.We started the fixtures positively and held Plaistow and Kirdford to a 1-1 draw (which was an improvement on last week). In the following four fixtures we matched their results, winning two games and drawing two games. Unfortunately this wasn't enough as the points from both meetings were combined resulting in us finishing 2nd overall. Well done to all the children who played and a big thank you to the parents who supported from the sideline. https://www.hdsd.org.uk/News/october-2018/great-day-for-greenway 

L-KS2 Horsham District Football Tournament (meet 1/2) 

On Friday 5th October, we took part in the Horsham District Football Tournament. This is the first time that the Year 3 and 4 children played together as 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. 

They won all four games, beating Castlewood 1-0, St Robert Southwell 1-0, St Mary’s 2-0 and Plaistow and Kirdford 6-1. 

A huge thank you to Mr Lawrence who coached the team and all the parents who supported from the side-lines.
