The month started extremely well with Eva, Harriet, Finn and Hal winning the U11 mixed table tennis tournament. It was a very close contest as they won their semi final against Bassett Green by one point before defeating Holy Family by a mere three points in the final. Well played to our ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams who also took part. Two days later, twelve of our Year 3 and 4 children practised and improved their skills in a festival of the same sport at Woodlands Community College.
Our U11 girls' football team travelled to Salisbury for the St Mark's Junior School tournament. In blustery conditions, they remained undefeated in their 6 matches (winning 4 and drawing 2) to win the tournament. Well played to Eva, Jeffy, Lydia, Annabel, Isabelle, Victoria, Blanka, Emilia, Gracie and Edie! The U11 girls' ‘B’ football team lost their friendly match versus St Mark's C of E Junior 2-0 but played much better than the previous week. We returned back to the same school as our U11 boys' B team, as well as our Year 3 and 4 boys' team, both won 5-0 in their respective football friendlies.
Fifteen Year 3 and 4 children practised and improved their handball skills in the City festival. Year 2 and 3 children received their second set of tennis coaching from Jack and Sam from David Lloyd Leisure here at school.
The U11 mixed basketball league concluded as our A team (Ollie, Eva, Sayoga, Millan and Darren) lost 5-4 in their final against Townhill Junior School. Well played to our B team who reached the quarter finals where they lost to Bitterne C of E Junior.
