We have continued with our positive start in Sport this year. More teams have entered sports competitions with quite a lot of success.

Some children from Year 3 and 4 went to play in a football tournament at ‘Goals’ and competed very well against some strong teams. We also had a Year 5 and 6 Gymnastics team take part in a competition. They should be very pleased with their efforts.

Perhaps the best performance was that of our Year 5 and 6 girls Rugby team. They came so very close to winning the Town competition, but losing the last game resulted in a third place finish.

Last year was an amazingly successful year in Sports competitions. Our trophy cabinet is looking fuller than it ever has done.

We have already made a positive start to this new academic year too. Firstly, we entered a Year 5 and 6 Girls Football tournament. We competed very well and managed to qualify for the finals by winning all of our games! Here we played the best teams in the town – and came 3rd! An impressive performance by all the girls involved.

Following on from this we took part in a Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby competition. The first competition was tough and we finished in 4th. This, however, put us through to the plate finals against other schools who finished in a similar position. At this competition we got all the way to the final, losing to Hunsbury Park. Another great effort.

It has been great to see so many children get along to after school sports clubs. The competitions are fantastic, but there is so much more going on at Thorplands than these. It’s great to see. Maybe in the next blog I can show some photos of those clubs too!
