A new school year started with every child from Years 4, 5 and 6 receiving two tennis lessons from Sam and Jack (David Lloyd Leisure).
All children from Year 3 and 4 (with the exception of 3JP) enjoyed exercise and fun with Freddie Fit for one day.
As always, the football season started with the annual 6 a side tournaments at Wide Lane. The Year 4/5 boys’ team just failed to progress from their group to the latter stages, whilst both the Year 6 boys’ team and the U11 girls’ team remained unbeaten in their respective groups but, likewise, did not proceed beyond that.
The KS2 cross country league started and whilst we await the current standings, the school has been represented by in excess of 60 children each week – a fantastic achievement! Well done to Sophie (1st), Francesca (2nd), Harriet (3rd) and Eva (6th) in their two races whilst Niamh recorded two top ten finishes. Congratulations to Albert and Aedan for being the top boy finisher in the two races and well done to all the runners!
Two U9 boys’ football teams took part in a four team tournament at Stroud School where they played well to finish third and fourth.
The U11 girls’ football league started with a 2-1 victory for Springhill whilst the U11 mixed team persevered deep into extra time to defeat Kanes Hill 1-0 in the first round of the City Cup.
10 Year 2 children practised and improved their basketball skills at Cantell College.
A busy start to the new school year which will, no doubt, become busier but so enjoyable for so many children to have sporting opportunities.
At Springhill, we have we have built a strong working and community link with Team Solent Basketball Club.
