Netball County Tournament
On Thursday 28th March, 7 children from Years 5 and 6 competed at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre in the Netball County Finals. The children won their first two games, scoring many goals and showing their excellent skills. The following matches proved a tougher challenge, but they continued to work as a team and try their absolute best. After a long day, the team finished well in 9th place out of a total of 16 teams. We couldn't have asked for better weather and they thoroughly enjoyed the day - well done all of you!
Football Tournament- 23rd March 2019
On Saturday 23rd March, a group of children attended a football tournament at St Hugh’s, Woodhall Spa, hosted by JB Sports. All three teams rolled on subs and supported each other throughout; they showed great sportsmanship as always, along with excellent skill and teamwork. The C team missed out on the quarter-finals by just 1 point, facing some tough teams and scoring many goals over the course of their matches. The B team reached the quarter-finals and put up a good fight, with excellent defending all morning. The A team won their quarter-final match and got through to the semi-finals; the score was 0-0, even after extra time, which meant it went to penalties! After playing fantastically well, the team lost but went home with their heads held high. Well done to all the children who played – we are very proud of you all! We would also like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to Mr Chambers, Mr Todd and Mr Masterton for coaching our teams!

On Tuesday 19th March, 22 children from Years 3 and 4, went to the Horncastle AstroTurf to participate in a local Quicksticks tournament. There were 20 teams playing in the event, and Horncastle formed 4 of these. Despite having only a brief practice the day before, all teams walked into their first game feeling confident. They all demonstrated fantastic sportsmanship and teamwork skills, and worked together to move the ball around the pitch.
Of the 16 games played in total by the 4 teams, 11 goals were scored! Although none of the teams qualified for the semi-final, all children put in an amazing effort and should all feel very proud of themselves as their skills developed over the course of the morning.
On Thursday 24th January, a group of children in KS2 represented our school in a swimming gala at the Meridian Leisure Centre, Louth. The children swam a wide range of events and achieved medals for wins against local schools! The Year 3 and 4 children finished impressively in 1st place and the Year 5 and 6 children finished closely behind Woodhall Spa in 2nd place – only two points behind! The children were in great spirits – cheering on and supporting each other! An excellent effort by all children involved!
On Friday 9th November, 40 children from Years 5 and 6 competed in the Sports Hall Athletics Competition at Skegness Grammar School. The children were split into 2 teams, competing in several track relays and a variety of field events, including speed bounce, vertical jump and soft javelin.
The children supported each other fantastically, cheering each other on from the sidelines, resulting in the B team winning a trophy for the best sportsmanship!
Both teams tried their absolute best and did extremely well; the B team finished 5th and the A team came a close 2nd! A huge well done to the children involved - I am very proud of you all!
Year 5/6 Football Tornament
On Thursday 27th September, a group of children from Year 5 and 6 went to an U11’s football tournament to play against other Costal schools, in Skegness. Both of our teams performed well; they demonstrated a great team spirit and excellent sportsmanship throughout! Our A team were dominating many of their games but unfortunately, couldn’t get the winning goal resulting in draws as well as wins and therefore achieving 4th place whilst our B team fought hard in their games and finished in 6th place overall.
Well done all, you proudly represented our school!
