Year 5/6 Hockey Tournament 31.10.17

20171031_171611_edited.jpg

A huge well done to our fantastic team who played in the Wilson Stuart Active Society Hockey Tournament at Bishop Vesey Grammar School - we are very proud of your excellent sportsmanship and playing! It was a very tense evening, with Mrs Mytton's nerves in tatters, but what an incredible result and we got to bring the trophy home too!

Well done, also, to the children who attended the after school training clubs to be considered for the team - you showed great commitment and perseverance!

The report below was written by some of our Year 6 boys who took part in the tournament:

'The hockey tournament was an incredible and competitive experience. There were 8 schools all together. We all arrived and warmed up, and were ready to go. We found out who we were playing against and the starting line-up for our team, then we got onto the pitch where the tension started to build. We played excellently and dominated against Maney Hill, with us having many close shots – unfortunately, it ended in a 0-0 draw. Credit to their keeper who made some good saves!

Next, we were against our main rival school – Deanery! Once again, we played extremely well and kept possession of the ball for most of the match. This time, we pulled it off successfully with a 1-0 win to Whitehouse Common! Woo! It was a fantastic feeling and all our supporters were in high spirits – including our biggest supporter, Mrs Mytton, whose nerves were now gathering back together!

We had a short and well-deserved break while Maney Hill and Deanery played each other. It was pretty tense, as if Maney Hill won then we would have to go into a penalty shoot-out. Maney Hill ended up winning and so it was at this point that we sent Mrs Mytton’s nerves into shatters as we had to have the penalty shoot-out. The pressure was on and we both did so well that it kept going and going. Unlucky for us on the final shots, we missed one and Maney Hill managed to score. But never mind, we were proud of our match playing. Fortunately, we were still through to the semi-final as the runners-up.

In the semi-final, we were against Moor Hall. We found this match a little easier as we had had a break. We played incredibly well again, keeping the pressure on and making some great saves. Thankfully, we were successful in scoring and won 1-0…we were through to the final!

When we got the final game pitch, we saw our opponents… Maney Hill! Again, this was an incredibly close game with both teams playing well and us keeping on the pressure. We had some close shots but the match ended up going into extra time as we were at 0-0! At this point, the game could go either way, but we were confident as we had had some good possession. All of a sudden, the lights went out and we were plunged into darkness! Bishop Vesey couldn’t get them back on after us waiting for 15 minutes so we had to end the tournament. Frustratingly for us, the only way to decide an overall winner was to go back to the penalty shoot-out with Maney Hill (because our other matches were 0-0 and we had won the same amount of matches in the tournament) so we ended up taking home the silver medals!

Because of the situation and how close it was, Wilson Stuart decided that it was only fair we split the trophy so we came home with it for the first 6 months!’

Whitehouse Common look forward to more success next year!

PE Events and Competitions - dates

We have a new section on the PE page that lists all of the events we are registered in through Wilson Stuart Active Society for this academic year. This can be found under Curriculum> PE/Sport> PE Events and Competitions

Please take a moment to check this if your child would like to take part, as we want to limit 'last minute drop outs' this year as much as possible.

If you would like to attend any event as parent helper, this would be greatly appreciated - please contact Mrs Mytton via the Oaks office.

Thank you

Cross country at Bishop Veseys

Tonight the year 5 and 6 cross country team took part in the 2nd race of the season at Bishop Veseys. On a beautiful sunny evening, the team were very excited as they walked across the Vesey field down to the start by the cricket pavillion. 

boys bvgsThe boys' race was first. The start is always very cramped and unfortunately a couple of our runners got tripped and fell. However, they recovered and the whole team ran with determination and 100% effort. Our leading runner was Ben H who finished 23rd;  Joe, Lucas and Myles finished in a bunch in 60th, 65th and 66th.

As the boys were finishing, the girls set off. Chasing the 'hare' they sped around the fields. The boys joined Señora Stevens to encourage the girls as they rounded the corner and circled the tennis courts. Isabell ran incredibly, finishing 9th, closely followed by Aliya in 21st, and Mariah and Laila in 33rd and 34th. 

Well done to everyone who ran for your excellent cooperation and wonderful team spirit. Thanks too got to the parents who supported the team, and to the team's siblings who picked up lots of conkers for Reception!

The next race is in March so time for some training before then!

Run 4 School money - final plea!

We have been very succesful so far in receiving a great amount of sponsorship money from children who took part in the Run 4 School event, however we are aware that not all children have been able to bring theirs in yet. 

We ask that you please do this as soon as possible, as we are in the process of final counts and contacting the Norman Laud representative to award our contribution to their wonderful organisation.

A reminder that, as promised, there will also be a reward for the individual child and class with the most sponsorship.

Thank you again for your support and participation in this fantastic event.

We look forward to finding out what the children would like to invest the sponsorship money in to improve our sporting ethos and opportunities further!

A final thank you to our T-shirt sponsors: Four Oaks School of Soccor and Principal Business Solutions
