Fifteen children from Year 5 took part in an U11 Mixed Netball Festival at the Sports Centre where their skills in this particular sport, coupled with the knowledge of the rules, improved as the tournament progressed.

As part of their community work, four firefighters from St Mary’s Watch ran a safety workshop for all of the Year 5 children before involving the children in a games lesson.
The U11 Girls Football team put in their best performance of the season as they beat the current leaders of their league (Townhill Junior) 1-0 in their latest match.
The U11 Boys Football team suffered penalty heartbreak as they lost 4-3 to Blackfield Junior in the last sixteen of the City Cup after the game had finished 1-1 after extra time. Well played to the team on a very good performance against a strong team.
The U9 Mixed Tag Rugby team finished 5th and 15th,
respectively, in last week’s City Tournament.
The Lower School Cross Country Championship (Year 3 and 4) saw thirty-five children representing the school. Well done to all the runners and special mention to Jack (10th), Tomas (13th), Kit (15th) and Julien (16th). The B, C and D teams finished 7th, 11th and 18th, respectively. Great runs by Matilda (4th), Abi (5th), Lena (9th) and Juliet (10th) resulted in the Girls A team obtaining first place in the team race, whilst the B team, Aoife (12th), Pati (13th), Nati (16th) and Jessica (24th), finished 2nd. The C team were placed 6th.
Twenty-four Year 5 and 6 children attended The Upper School Championship where all the runners performed admirably in cold and muddy conditions. Well done to Aedan (5th), Tomas (7th), Luke (9th) and Damien (10th) whose combined finishes resulted in their second place in the team race with the B team 6th and the C team 11th. 2nd place for Sophie, 3rd for Francesca, 6th for Niamh and 8th for Lily S allowed the Girls team to win the team race, with the B team 4th and the C team 8th. Due to two previous postponements, this race also doubled up as Week 4 of the KS2 league. Well done to Aedan and Sophie, both of whom finished in second place overall, whilst the Boys team (Aedan, Tomas, William and Damien) finished third in their league, the Girls team (Sophie, Francesca, Niamh and Violet) came second whilst the Girls B team (Grace, Matilda, Juliet and Lilly S) were placed 3rd.
Very well done to all the cross country runners who have run this school year; it has been amazing to see you all running your best and with approximately 65-70 taking part each week when all four year groups are running! The success of the school in this sport was highlighted by Aedan, Sophie, Francesca, Violet, Niamh and Grace representing the city in the U11 County Cross Country Finals in Basingstoke.
