In the second week back at school, after the Easter holidays, we concluded our final two matches of the girl’s football league, arranged by Elite Sport Academy. We played on Monday 29th April, away, against Crowland, who had a very strong team. Unfortunately we were missing a few members from our regular team and we lost this game 7-1. We then played again on Tuesday 30th April, at home, against Spalding Primary and we won 3-2.
We are also taking part in a rounders league throughout term 5 and 6. Unfortunately our first match against Spalding Primary, at home, had to be postponed due to the rain last week. We are now looking to rearrange this before the end of this term.
Hockey- On Friday 3rd May, seven children from the Year 6 hockey club were chosen to attend the finals of the Surfleet Park hockey tournaments after-school. We played four games against Spalding Parish, St John’s, John Harrox and Wyberton Primary. We drew our first game, 0-0, against Spalding Parish. We then won, 2-0, in our second game against St John’s. After that we played against John Harrox and also won this game 2-0. In our final game against Wyberton we won 1-0. At the end of the tournament there was a presentation of results and we were presented with a lovely winners plate, made by the Doodles Pottery Painting team, for winning our league. We also had a few pictures and a great write-up in the Spalding Guardian newspaper.
Kwik Cricket- On Tuesday 7th May, ten children from Year 5 attended a Kwik Cricket tournament on the Pinchbeck football field. This tournament was arranaged by Elite Sport Academy. In the morning the children played games against Asycoughfee and Cowbit Primary Schools. After eating lunch, we were then placed in the Gold two league due to our results from the games played throughout the morning. We then played games against Eye Primary and Crowland in the hope of reaching the final against the winner from the Gold one league. Unfortunately we didn’t quite make it to the final, but the children had a fantastic day of Cricket and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
This term it is Year 5’s turn to do Interhouse, led by the Year 6 Sports Captains. The sport chosen by the Sport’s Captains this time is Lacrosse and they have come up with some great ideas, for the rules, to make the game a bit different. There are still three matches left to be played between the houses before we find out who the winner is.
