Some of our Year 5 footballers stood in for the Year 6's who were at PGL to represent the school at the Inter-School Y6 Salesian College Football Tournament.
Twenty teams took part. Our Year 5's won their group. They then went onto win their quarter-final match. They were finally knocked out in the semi-finals on penalties. They played some fantastic football, scoring many goals and our goalkeeper Sam made some amazing saves.
Their team effort, attitude and spirit was commendable.
Well Done boys!
Sports Taster Sessions
Recently the children have experienced several sports' taster activities. In giving the children a variety of taster sports sessions throughout the year we hope to find a sporting activity that every child may enjoy. When setting up the taster sessions we always ensure there is a pathway to a school club or a local community club that they may join if they are interested.
KS1 enjoyed a football taster session and who knows when we may spot the next Neymar! Not only do we have SCL and Chlesea football clubs at school there are lots of local clubs for the children to join.
KS2 tried out the racquet sport of Squash. This was new for most of our children and they children thoroughly enjoyed their sessions. There are new junior squash club sessions available for the children to join at the local Bourne Club.
We ran exciting Floorball taster sessions hoping to encourage a new generation of Floorball players.

They acted in a very sporting manner always thanking their referee and cheering for the opposing team at the end of each match. Their behaviour was exemplary and they were a credit to our school.

- The 'Morgan Cup' This was for the best girls' relay team.
Additionally, we came 2nd in the Boys Relay and 3rd in the Field Events.
