Summer House Matches

KS2 Rounders

On Wednesday 10th 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 5 minute innings.

The children all played really well with some impressive catching from Billy, Eve and Mickey. There was some super bowling from Fern and Cayden and some wonderful fielding from Bertie and Thomas. Similarly there was some fantastic batting from Sam B, Jacques, Ed W and Brenden. 

Thank you to our Sports Leaders who helped umpire (Dexter and Miles) , score (Skye and Chloe), time and organise the games.

The teams were given 3 points for a win, 2 points for a draw and 1 point for a loss. The scores were incredibly close with two teams finishing on 6 points therefore we used the number of 'outs' to decide.

 

The results were:

2nd Southlands (6 points and only out 12 times)

3rd Brewhurst (6 points and out 19 times) 

4th Malham (4 points)

 

KS2 Kwik Cricket

On Wednesday 10th 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:

Brewhurst  221- 244   Drungewick                    Malham  232 - 220   Southlands

 

3rd Place Play Off:

Brewhurst   199 -  227  Southlands 

 

Final:

Drungewick  262 - 224   Malham 

 

All the children played well and were able to use the skills they have picked up in their PE lessons. Sam V and Flynn were great all rounders. We saw some brilliant batting from Halle, Sarah and Daniel. Danny and Kelsey made some impressive catches and we saw some super bowling from William F, Finley V and Florrie P. 

A big thank you to our Sports Leaders who had the tricky job of umpiring (Thomas, Brenden and Bertie) and to Jessica, Eve and Emily who learnt how to score. 

 

The results were:

1st Drungewick

2nd Malham

3rd Southlands

4th Brewhurst

Fairways to Horsham Golf Final

On Wednesday 3rd July, two pairs of children from both L-KS2 and U-KS2 competed in the Fairways to Horsham Golf final which was held at Horsham Golf and Fitness. We had already had a qualification day at school and all junior children competed in pairs with the best pair from each age group qualifying for the final.

At school, we 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, memorable experience for us and we were able to make good progress throughout the morning.

We competed against three other schools from the Horsham District. We (Sam and Ella) came second in our age group and Florrie and Jayden came 4th.  

“I was able use my skills from after school golf lessons and experience playing on a real course!” (Jayden, Year 3).

“I was really proud that my golf lessons helped me get to the final. It was fun.”

(Postponed)  Year 6 Kwik Cricket Competition

On Tuesday 25th June, Year 5 & 6 boys represented the school at the Year 6 Kwik Cricket Competition at Southwater Cricket Club. The original fixture had been called off due to the weather and annoyingly the rescheduled date clashed with The Weald Transition date. Consequently our team consisted predominantly of Year 5’s who played brilliantly against stiff competition from much bigger schools. They were delighted to win their final match after several defeats. The boys should be commended for their positive attitude and resilience; we were very proud of them.

Talented Athlete
On Wednesday, selected children from Year 5 & 6 went for their 3rd and final session at The Weald. The Talented Athlete academy is an opportunity for the children to test out their teamwork and to play against other schools. The children had a great time and were tired out by the end of the afternoon!
Street Sports Festival
This week 14 children from year five and six went to Horsham Street Sports Festival. There were five activities -skateboarding, go-karting, disc golf, dodge ball and cycling. There were many different schools there, which all took part in the activities. Skateboarding had some fun challenges to do; racing and going down ramps. In Go-karting there were four races, where there was one person pushing and one person steering. In disc golf you had to throw a disc into a chain bucket - if you didn’t get it in your partner would have a go throwing it into the chain bucket. In dodge ball we played a normal game then we played a game of ‘captain’ which is when someone wears a yellow bib and if they get hit by a dodge ball the whole team is out. In cycling, there was a bumpy off-roading track, some ramps, a limbo bar and a swerving test. We all had a great time!

KS2 Weald Locality Swimming Gala

Mrs Winter’s report

On Tuesday 11th June, we took part in a swimming competition against The Weald Locality Schools. After the individual races we were in first position, we couldn’t quite believe it! We then had four relay races which were so exciting – I had to cheer very, very loudly and we won two of our heats. Unfortunately, after the heats we slid down to second place. However, I have to say a huge well done to all of the team – not only for almost winning; but because they were extremely well behaved, showed great team spirit, were really efficient in getting to the starts and negotiated with each other to decide on their races. You were all truly brilliant and I was very proud!

Sports Day

As always, Sports Day was a huge success, with the children competing in a number of individual and team activities for their house allowing them to show off their PE skills! Thank you to the PTA for helping on the day and providing much appreciated ice-lollies and cold refreshments for the adults, Miss Price for her fantastic organisation and to everybody that came and supported the children.

Loxwood Cricket Club

We had a visit today (9th May) from Bernie who was representing Loxwood Cricket Club. He led a fun cricket taster session for Years 1, 2, 5 and 6. Loxwood Cricket club meet on a Saturday morning and are keen for new members. Please see the flyer that has come home with your child for more details.

 KS1 Multi Skills

On Wednesday 1st May, Year 1 children were invited to join the Infant Multiskills Sports Festival hosted by the Weald Secondary School. All of the children had a great time taking part in the wide variety of sports activities lead by the Young Sports Leaders - pupils of the Weald. There was lots of fun had! Through these activities, the children were able to enhance their skills and experience an enthusiastic sports environment. As always it would not have been possible without some kind parent helpers, so thank you to the parents who volunteered their time.

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.

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

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.
