Four children were selected from each class in KS2 to represent the school in the City of London Swimming Gala, held at Golden Lane Leisure Centre. Here they rose to the challenge of racing other children from schools in the city across a range of different swimming strokes, in what was a very competitive Gala. A special mention must go to our medallists: 1st place in Backstroke: Storm in Year 5, 3rd place in Freestyle: Harrison in Year 4, 3rd place in Freestyle: Elliot in Year 3. Finally thankyou to all parents who gave fantastic support.
As defending champions in Sports-hall Athletics, we took a Year 5 and Year 6 team (7 boys & 7 girls) in the afternoon of Founders Day to Sir John Cass and Redcoat Secondary School for an afternoon of jumping, throwing and running events. Once again there were some fantastic performances from every member of the team which resulted in an overall result of 2nd out of 7 teams! Well done to all involved!
Team: Boys Team: Justyce, Adam D, Adam G, Mohammed, Orson, Dhanyaal, Arthur
Girls Team: Anastasia, Iris, Erica, Hosna, Sabrina, Monika, Romilly
With Year 6 out on a trip, a team from Year 5 and Year 4 took their place to represent the school in an indoor cricket competition at University of East London, Sportsdock. Here children learned how to take wickets and score runs against a number of different schools. A special mention must go to a batting partnership in one particular game by Theo and Harrison in Year 4.
A Year 5 and Year 6 team again represented the school at the same venue as the boys’ competition. The girls won one game and lost one game, with some excellent performances all round when bowling and batting. A special mention must go to the sensible batting of Hiba and big hitting of Arabella.
A team of Year 5 and 6 had the challenge of learning and performing a vault and a body management and floor routine at Marion Richardson School. Here everyone was very impressed with the level of performance from the team. Well done to Harper, Erica and Kai for learning the routines very quickly, and to Sabrina, Romilly, Mila, and Anastasia for fantastic performances as well.
Before Christmas we took a KS2 team to Langdon Park Secondary for a netball tournament. With Year 6 away, it was down to children for Year 4 and Year 5 to play against teams older and taller than them. Well done to all involved who improved with every game and competed well against the other schools.
