Football and KS1 Sport


A great week for sport as more of our children had the opportunity to represent our school.

In football, our Year 6 team hosted St Peters Catholic who travelled over from Billericay. We were drawn against them in the Essex Parish Cup competition. Once they arrived and both teams had warmed up we played some excellent, flowing football on a gloriously sunny afternoon. At half time the teams were drawn 2-2, setting up an exciting 2nd half. Unfortunately St Peters had a lot more shots on goal than us and ultimately secured an impressive 5-3 win! We wish them the best of luck in the next round and eagerly look forward to our future fixtures.

Some children from Year 1 were selected this week to take part in a KS1 sports event. 10 children climbed aboard a coach as we travelled to St Cedds Primary School, over in Bradwell. Some of our children were a little wary, but soon got highly energised, taking on 3 different sports circuits requiring balance, body control and co-ordination. They then worked as a team to play some balloon volleyball! The children were superb ambassadors for our school and definitely enjoyed their afternoon of sport. Many thanks to St Cedds for hosting the event and William De Ferrers High School for delivering the event.
