Sporting Successes this Autumn!

It has been a very busy and successful term, with an amazing 89 KS2 children competing for the school across 11 different sports. In Cross-country, our teams have raced in the SE Cornwall League. In the Year 3/4 Boys, Owen Loton has come 1st in both races. In the team competitions, our Year 3/4 Girls are 3rd overall, as are our Year 5/6 Girls after some very strong performances. In Grass Track Cycling our Year 5/6 Team became East Cornwall Champions, thus qualifying for The Cornwall School Games Finals in April. Our Netball team were utterly dominant in the 1st Saltash Schools Cluster Tournament, winning every single game without conceding a single goal. In Basketball, our team won their first ever tournament, as did our Hockey team. Our Boys A Football team have won their League matches and have also progressed to the next round of the SE Cornwall Large Schools Cup, as well as the Cornwall Rosewarne Shield Cup. Our new B Team won their SE Cornwall Intermediate Schools Cup Match, and are also competing in the ARENA Schools League at Callington Community College. The Girls Football Team have competed in the Saltash Tournament at Saltmill, along with the B Team, and were also unlucky to just miss out on qualifying for the ESFA County Finals. Our Year 5/6 Swimming Team recently competed extremely well in the East Cornwall CSG Qualifier (still awaiting results). We also took over 70 children to participate in a Badminton, Dance and Tag Rugby Festival recently at Saltash.net.

Next term will see more competition in the above sports, as well as starting our campaigns in Sports Hall Athletics, Touch Rugby, KS1 Multi-Skills, Gymnastics, and then in the Summer Term we will compete in KS1 Cricket, KS2 Cricket, KS1 Football, Quad Kids Athletics, Orienteering, another Couch to 5km event, and then finally a 5km and Beyond event for those families who successfully competed in last year’s event. I feel tired just writing this!
