Inter-Team Competition

On Thursday 15th October Oak class had their first ‘Team Competion’. During our curriculum PE lesson we are doing a Basketball unit and our competition involved a ‘Basketball shoot out’. The children were all very supportive of their team mates and encouraged each other throughout. 
The competition was very close until Chloe stepped up to shoot for AMBER, it has to be said that Chloe was on a roll and didn’t miss a shot, even when Mr Power decided to try and mark her shot she was still able to shoot past him! 
This was the first of many team competitions we plan to have throughout the year, the results were as follows:

4th Place with 7 goals – Emeralds

3rd Place with 8 goals – Ruby

2nd Place with 9 goals – Sapphire

1st Place with 14 goals - Amber

Boys L2 Football Qualifying Competition

On Thursday 15th October we took part in our first competition of the new school year. Our boy’s football team took part in the Hedingham hub tournament, we got off to a flying start winning our first 3 matches and not conceding goals at all. The boys worked together exceptionally well and we saw some fantastic goals and outstanding defending. 

We were through to the semi-final where we met St Peter's, Sible Hedingham. After a well fought battle we unfortunately lost 1-0 and therefore didn’t make the final. Our spirits were not dampened and the boys showed great maturity, held their 
heads high and played for a win in third postion. A good start to our sporting year, well done team.
