Summer arrived, and then disappeared, but the sport at Springhill kept on coming!
The U11 mixed netball league started and, like ALL the children from the other primary schools, once our two teams had adjusted to the complex rules, some great netball was played.
Final positions will be finalised next month.
Year 5 children continued to attend King Edward VI School for their fencing lessons...
…and 4DH continued their swimming lessons at Oaklands Community pool.
Students from Solent University continued to deliver games lessons to Year 6, 4MR and 4KS, whilst Joe from the same university delivered gym to 5KA and 5SF.
The U11 boys’ football teams converged on Test Park for the annual tournament.
The B team played well and won their last game, which was totally deserved after all their efforts in previous matches.
The A team qualified for the quarter finals where they won a tense penalty shoot-out before losing their semi-final.
The U11 mixed hockey teams both progressed to the quarter finals after winning all three of their league games. The B team agonisingly lost on golden goals to Ludlow Primary but the A team progressed all the way to the final where they defeated Hollybrook Junior 2-1 to qualify for the Hampshire and IOW Games.
This qualification feat was emulated by the Year 3/4 Tri Golf team who finished second in the City Tournament.
The Year 3/4 tag rugby team lost to Fair Oak Junior in a friendly match.
Sports lessons, including a large amount of Sports’ Day practice, took place and the Golden Mile continued to grow as KS2 children ran, walked and jogged during the daily 10 minute workout.
At Springhill, we have we have built a strong working and community link with Team Solent Basketball Club.
