On Wednesday 4th March, we took a year 4 dodgeball team to compete in a Sports Games qualifier at Colmers. When we arrived, we found out that there would be no points for results but instead we could gain points for teamwork, showing honesty and respect. The opposition teams scored us and we got a great score as we played some great dodgeball. It’s a very fast and frantic game and we had great fun!Well done to Zach, Jamie, Ryan, Tyler, Sophie, Amber, Ellie and Pixie.
On Thursday 5th March, we took two Y6 teams to compete in a ‘Quik Sticks’ hockey tournament at King Edwards Five Ways. It was a very cold evening but that didn’t stop either team playing some great hockey. One of our teams won 5 games out of 5 and were crowned tournament winners! They will now go forward to represent the Colmers partnership at the Birmingham City Sports Games Finals at the end of the month. We wish them the nest of luck. Well done to Chris, George, Persia, Lilian, James, Lilly-May, Lauren, Reuben and Max.
On Friday 6th March, our boys football team played their first three matches in the Mike Smith schools’ football league. Game 1 saw us defeat St.Laurence 2-1. Game 2 was another great win, this time against St.John Fisher by a single goal. In our final game of the evening, we lost 2-1 to a very strong Northfield Manor team. A great start to our league campaign and hopefully we can secure more wins next time out.Well played George, Louie, Chris, Dylan D, Dylan S, Matthew and Brody.
On Tuesday 10th March, we took two tag rugby teams to Kings Norton Rugby Club to participate in a schools’ competition. 21 teams were in attendance and our two teams were placed in separate leagues. Mr Billingham coached one team and Mr Ottley the other. Both teams played some brilliant rugby in very muddy conditions. One team finished third in a league of 7 teams and our other team won 6 games out of 6 to be crowned league champions! This was an amazing achievement considering the high quality of the teams involved.A huge well done to all the rugby players who represented our school.
