Sports Reports 2019-2020

KS2 Autumn House Matches

On Wednesday 20thNovember we had our Autumn House Matches. The children had already met in their houses and decided whether they were going to play hockey or 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.

This was also the first opportunity of the year 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. 

Hockey

We played this as a mixed 6-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.

Year 3 - 6 Cross Country Championship
 
 On Wednesday 11th November teams of girls and boys from each Junior class represented the school in the annual Weald Locality Cross Country Championship. After the recent rain, and the Weald School's championship having taken place on the same field the day before, the muddy course was everything you would expect for cross-country!
 
All the teams ran their best, with a particularly thrilling sprint finish between Ed and William. The Year 3 & 4 children ran 1000m, the Year 5 ran 1600m and the Year 6 ran 2000m - quite a challenge for all the participants.
 
All the runners are to be commended for having a great attitude and running their best. We had several first or second places as well as personal bests in abundance. Well done to all.
Year 3 & 4 Horsham District Football Tournament
 
On Friday 4th October, the Year 3 and 4 football team participated in the first meeting of the Horsham District Football Tournament in Horsham Park. In previous years, this has been split into two categories: small schools and large schools however, this year we will play all the teams, regardless of size. 
 
Having never played as a team before, the children did well to win their first game against Heron Way B 1-0. They then went on to win the rest of their fixtures including an 8-0 win over Leechpool B, finishing the evening unbeaten. 
 
The children demonstrated fantastic teamwork and listened to all the advise they were being given from the sideline but particular mentions to Daniel, Jayden Osman and Isabella who all scored multiple goals. 
 
Let's hope they can keep this up for the final meeting on 18th October.
