House Matches

KS2 Rounders

On Wednesday 11th July, KS2 children played an internal, mixed rounders tournament as part of their PE lesson with Mr Green. Each house played 3 games which consisted of 6 minute innings. The children all played really well with some impressive catching from Stuart, great fielding from Martha and Jacques, super batting from Sam V and Keeley and some good bowling from Liv and Cayden. Thank you to our Sports Leaders who helped umpire, score and organise the games.

KS2 Kwik Cricket

On Wednesday 11th July, KS2 children played an internal, mixed pairs Kwik Cricket tournament as part of their PE lesson with Mr Green. This game took the same format as the Kwik Cricket competitions that we had already played in the locality but to speed up the game we decided to play with only 4 balls per over. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time for a round robin tournament so we played the first game as group stages. This then sorted out who played in the final or the 3rd place play offs.

 

1st Round:

Malham 235 - 239 Southlands              Brewhurst 269-236 Drungewick

 

3rd Place Play Off:

Malham 246-223 Drungewick  

 

Final:

Southlands 220-243

 

All the children played well and were able to use the skills they have picked up in their PE lessons. Seb, Fraser W and Tom were fantastic all rounders demonstrating superb fielding. We saw some great batting from Alex, Angus and Lucas and some fantastic bowling from Hetti and Luke. A big thank you to our Sports Leaders who had the tricky job of umpiring and particularly to Grace and Tannah who learnt how to score. 

 

The results were:

1st Brewhurst

2nd Southlands

3rd Malham

Fairways to Horsham Golf Final

Four pairs of children from both L-KS2 and U-KS2, who had qualified through the preliminary rounds which were held at school, went on to represent the Loxwood at the Fairways to Horsham final.  During the prelim rounds, the children used plastic clubs and balls on a pop-up course however, the finals were played on a par 3 course with proper clubs and balls. This was a fantastic experience for the children who all thorough enjoyed the morning.

KS2 Fairways to Horsham Golf 

On Monday 18th June, KS2 children took part in the Fairways to Horsham Golf Competition. They were paired up (one boy and one girl) and played on the pop-up golf course that had been constructed on the school field. They played 6 holes and kept their own scores . Each class (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6) had a 60 minute session, which allowed time to play practice holes before completing the 6-hole course. The two best pairs from each age category (Year 3/4 and Year 5/6) will be selected to represent the school in the finals which will be run at Horsham Golf & Fitness on The Firs' short course on Wednesday 4th July 2018. 
Year 6 Horsham District Kwik Cricket Tournament 
On Wednesday 12th June, Year 6 competed in a Kwik Cricket tournament at Horsham Cricket Club. A wide range of schools attend and were split into four groups for the morning. As part of the group stages, we played 3 games in the morning and worked well as a team. The team started off their first game (against Kingslea) with some strong fielding. Fraser, Tom and Neo all took various wickets & Lizzie bowled a maiden over. The batting was just as good, ensuring we won the first game 267-203. 
This lulled us into a false sense of security and we lost the second game (Shelley) 273-225. 
Even though we had some good wicket keeping from Neo and some good bowling from Tom and Fraser, we lost the final game of the group stages (Holbrook) 244-25. 
After lunch we were regrouped and played two more games. We best Northolmes 276-206 and St Mary’s 257-266. A huge thank you to Mrs Bonney and all the parents who helped officiate and support the team. 

Year 4/5 Central Sussex Kwik Cricket Tournament  

On Wednesday 6th June, Year 4 and 5 children competed in a Kwik Cricket tournament at Horsham Cricket Club.

 

In the group phases in the morning, we faced a tough game against Holmbush and we lost our first game by 62 runs. Although our bowling was pretty good and Fern managed to get a wicket, our fielding and batting were areas of weakness. 

We went into the second game against St Mary's (Pulborough) slightly deflated but the children had been reflective and lost less wickets when batting and the fielding started to improve with a good stop from Phoebe. 

We faced we faced North Heath in the final game of the group stages. Even though the batting was much improved and we didn't lose a wicket, we still lost the game by 6 runs. Consequently, we finished the morning last in our group. 

After a quick lunch break, the teams were regrouped and we played a couple of friendly games. We had a close game with Heron Way A, losing by 6 runs. Our final game of the day was against Warnham and we managed to win by 27 runs. 

Well done to all those children who played their part and also to our parents who supported us. 

Year 4 Tennis 
On Thursday 3rd May a L-KS2 team went to The Weald for the 'Road to Eastbourne' Tennis tournament. We were playing 3 other locality primary schools. All the way through the competition we managed to remain in 2nd place and were amazing. We even had the whole of the year 7 and 8's from The Weald with us on the tennis court due to a fire alarm! I was so proud of the children as they were so well mannered and sportsmanlike. They were supportive of the other teams and always ready with a 'well done' or 'good shot'. Their fantastic behavior was also acknowledged by other members of staff. We ended the competition, as we were throughout, in second with Rudgwick qualifying for the finals. 

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.
