KS1 Football Players Shine

 

Our schools’ youngest team represented us superbly in their second tournament of the year. After a special coaching session from Anthony Cornish, our local FA club leader, their game had really improved.

Well done to all of our players. We’re really proud of them!

Cross Country Mud Run!

 

Thanks to Helena Willford for her little write-up.

Great effort at Cross Country tonight. There were two races of over 100 students in each and loads of them tripping over and causing pile ups round the first muddy corner (exciting viewing!), but our 4 flew round like gazelles, I was so impressed. Big well done Jacob, Grace, Hamish and Jodie👏🏻👏🏻

 

 

Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge

Next week, to support Children In Need, our pupils are taking on a massive challenge - to run, walk, swim or cycle their age in miles! By the end of the week we hope to have equalled the 500 miles or so that the Children In Need rickshaw will have been pedalled.

 

Because our curriculum is so tight much of the running in school will take place before registration or during lunchtimes. Mrs Savage and Mrs Tyrell will be opening Crowcombe playground up for runners from 8:30 each morning next week - so do bring your child in early if they want to run!

 

You can run, walk, cycle or swim outside of school too. If your child completes any distances next week, from a dog walk to a swim, please send them to school the next day with a note from an adult detailing the activity and the distance to the nearest mile (or quarter mile for shorter distances).

 

Your child will have brought hope a sponsorship form today. Please do help them find at least a couple of sponsors, sponsoring per mile or for attempting the task. Every little will help encourage our runners. More forms can be downloaded below.

You can track the Somerset schools' total distance here (https://the-rickshaw-challenge-2018.everydayhero.com/uk/somerset-schools). It will be updated daily.

 

The BBC asked us to send them footage of our children running. It didn't make the One Show tonight so, fingers crossed, it will be aired during the Children In Need show this Friday evening.

Young Leaders’ Celebration Day

Young Leaders’ Celebration Day 1

If you are the family of a child in Keystage Two then you will certainly have heard about ‘Fun Club’, the Friday lunchtime activity club run by our Year Six Young Leaders. Every week they are out there challenging and engaging other children, leading by example and pushing their own leadership limits!

 

As positions are limited in number pupils need to apply for a Young Leadership  post at the end of Year Five, after receiving initial training, and this that pass the selection are supported in their role through Year Six by Mrs Stevenson.

 

Young Leaders plan, timetable, set up, lead and record every one of their fun and active sessions. After each session, they celebrate good sportsmanship shown by children who take part by presenting ‘Spirit of the Games’. They even create a weekly poster documenting the session. Leadership is more than just kicking a ball about with younger ones and Fun Club challenges and rewards the Young Leaders as much as it does the children who come each week.

 

In celebration of their commitment and effort, our young leaders are given hoodies in the spring term and a great day out in the summer. Today we went to the COACH centre in Taunton for a day of paddle boarding, rafting and tree climbing. As ever the children were enthusiastic, supportive to each other, courageous and fantastically well mannered! What a wonderful way to celebrate a year of giving enjoyment and inspiration to others! Thank you Young Leaders, for a great year and a fantastic day!

Parent report - Fantastic show by our footballers tonight at the Heathfield School tournament - they did brilliantly despite the torrential rain and cold! They won 3/4 games with some high scores- even though one of the opposition teams put a grown up in goal!! Would be great to take some more players along next time and even better if we had some girls on the team.

Cross Country - Nov 17

Our named adult’s report:

 

Once again the children were a credit to the school at the Cross Country races. They were all turned out in their kit, looking very smart. They were also very excited to be taking part.

This was an individual race (unlike the team relay the time before). When asked whether they preferred the team event or the individual? they replied "we liked the individual because it meant that we could look after each other as we ran around".

 

Thank you to Chris Birch for being named adult for this event.

Well done to our super keen KS1 football team. Five brave boys went to Taunton to play in a Central Venue League friendly tournament. They made us all proud as the played with enthusiasm, teamwork and a great, positive attitude. They also won three out of the four games that they played! What a wonderful start to their sporting careers.

Four children went to Kingsmead for the Badminton competition.
Again all children worked well together and gave lots of encouragement and support to each other especially as this was the first time some had played Badminton.
They came up across some good teams but they all enjoyed the experience,they won a few games and lost a few but there were no signs of disappointment just lots of determination to want to play.
One thing that was noted at the end was the good sportsmanship between them all and shaking hands with the opposition after every match.

Handball - Nov 17

 

We turned up with four very enthusiastic children and soon realised that five children was required!!
A special thank you must go to Creech St Michael Primary School as their children kindly rotated and worked with our children enabling us to take part.
There was a good team spirt with lots of encouragement and guidance to each other.
It was noticed how Zak and Teddy showed some positive leader skills and supported the rest of the team well.

It was good see the children enjoying themselves and all participating.
They were encouraging and supportive to each other and worked well together as a team 
They managed to rotate themselves so each had the same amount of games.
Mr Adams Clarke did well also on the court encouraging them all and even joining in the adult game at the end.

Cross Country & Rugby in one week!

 

It has been a busy week for our young athletes. Thank you, as ever to our wonderful parents for transporting and chaperoning our players.

 

Parent report:

 

The cross country was lovely as when the children finished running their leg they then went and met the other runners to give the support and encouragement.

Harriet ran with Estella to encourage her to keep on running; it was just beautiful to watch.

 

The rugby was good as SASP ran some coaching skills before the games started and I think our children benefited from this.

 

The other school teams do predominately have years 5 & 6s playing, whilst we have sent two teams of years 3 to 6! It was good that each of our teams had only 7 players, as this allowed a year 6 from the team who wasn’t playing to join the other team to give it some extra strength.

 

We drew the first game, won the next two and lost by 1 try on the last.

 

A big thanks to Ben White for his coaching skills and building up team spirit.

 

At both events the children were extremely well behaved and showed the other schools how to look out for each other and more importantly how to have fun at the same time.
