November proved to be the busiest month of the school year so far.The U11 boys’ football team progressed to the quarter finals of the City Cup following a 3-0 victory against Valentine Primary School. Unfortunately, they lost heavily to Lyndhurst Primary School in the second round of the County Cup, the same round as our U11 girls’ team lost a close fought encounter to St John the Baptist.
Lessons for our KS2 children continued as Steve and Sue (Southampton Hockey Club), Lee (Football Association), Harry (District Sport) and Joe (SkoolSport) came into school to deliver lessons to children in Year 4, 5 and 6. Sports clubs continued to run on a regular basis.
Following three weeks of practice and qualifying, our U11 indoor athletics team finished runners up in the City Finals – a fantastic achievement! Three teams entered the U11 mixed basketball league. The B and C teams finished third and fourth respectively in their group whilst the A team won all their games to come top and qualify for next month’s Finals Day.
4KS finished their swimming lessons at Oaklands Community Pool. Three teams represented the school in the City Table Tennis tournament with both the A and B team remaining unbeaten to face each other in the final where the A team won a close encounter 3-1. The C team finished fourth in their group. Fourteen children from Year 3 and 4 attended the same sport’s festival at Valentine Primary School where they practised and improved their table tennis skills.
Well done to everyone who has represented the school this month.
