Mr Whitefield took members of the school's cricket club to Werrington for a cricket tournament. The children had a great time, winning more than half their matches and playing against teams from across northern and eastern Cornwall. Some pictures from the day can be found below.
Miss Lawson took members of the school netball club from years four to six to Budehaven to compete in the netball tournament. The team won all of their matches and the whole tournament. Well done to all involved. Below are some pictures from the tournament.
We took our girls' football team to Bodmin to compete against other schools. The girls had a great time and did really well. They played seven games, winning four, drawing two and losing just one. Well done girls!
We were really happy to have Talan come and train our sports leaders in the second half of the spring term as well as helping us with our hockey skills. Here are some pictures of our sports leaders undergoing training.
We took a group of confident sportspeople to the 'Born to Win' festival at Budehaven. The most successful athletes in the area were selected to join Budehaven's 'Born to Win Elite Academy.'
Our children had a fantastic time and all competed superbly. Seven of them were selected for the 'Born to Win Academy.'
Mrs Cook and Miss Stevens took a group of Year Five and Six pupils to Bodmin on 5th January to take part in the Cornwall Games Indoor Sports Hall Athletics competition. The children represented the school superbly and had fun.
The school took two teams of girls from Years 5 and 6 to compete against other schools at Budehaven. The girls displayed superb sporting behaviour and one of our teams won the tournament. Pictured below are the teams with their certificates.
Children in Key Stage Two took part in an inter-house football tournament on Friday 4th November as all of Key Stage Two had been working on their football skills in the previous half-term.
The children were split into two teams per house in Years 3 and 4 and two teams per house in Years 5 and 6 and then teams played each other.
At the end all of the points were added together and there was a draw! Gurney (red) and Hawker (yellow) had the same points and the same goal difference!
Mrs Cook and Miss Cole took a group of children to Budehaven to take part in the first festival of the year, a Year One and Two Ball Skills Festival. The children had the chance to mix with children from other schools whilst practicing ball skills associated with many different sports.
We have welcomed our new sports leaders who are helping their fellow pupils by leading active playtimes. The leaders, who had to apply to Mrs Cook, our PE lead, are being trained every Friday by Scott, our sports coach from LJD Coaching.
They are also working towards an award during their time in the post. Check out their pictures below:
