2017/2018 appears to be just as busy as always as children from all year groups take part in a variety of sporting activities, in and outside of school, during and after the school day.
As always, this month saw a large amount of football matches taking place. The U10 boys’ football team remained undefeated as they finished equal third in the city 6-a-side tournament. Unfortunately, the U11 boys’ team could not match this success as they took part in their tournament, also at Wide Lane, whist the U11 girls team reached the semi-finals of their event. The latter team lost a friendly match against Abbotswood; two teams took part in the first round of league matches with the ‘A’ team winning one game and losing one whilst the ‘B’ team lost both of their games. Two U11 boys’ teams beat St Marys School and the U9 team took part in a mini festival with Stroud School.
Dave and Sam from David Lloyd delivered two tennis sessions to all of our classes in Years 4, 5 and 6. Southampton Hockey Club, The Football Association and Sportskool taught games to children in Years 4, 5 and 6.
Swimming lessons for 4KS started at Oakland Community College whilst twelve Year 2 children attended a basketball festival at Cantell College. The cross country league for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 started as 40 girls and boys from Springhill converged on The Sports Centre for their first race.
Sixteen children attended the Eastleigh Football Club Matchday Experience; unfortunately the match was cancelled but the children still enjoyed a one hour coaching session and some food and drink.
Sports clubs for all children started this month, offering a diversity of sports for all year groups. Games lessons took place in the hall and on our MUGA.
