Thursday 29th November - Sports Hall Athletics
Our joint Swell and Longborough football team showed fantastic sportsmanship and determination at the tournament. We won our group on goals, winning against Bledington, Bourton B and drawing with Rissington. In our playoff we unfortuantely lost to Bourton A. Leaving us to play Temple Guiting who we drew with to claim joint 3rd place. Well done to all of the players and to those children who took a step outside their comfort zone to join in.
The year 3 and 4 children had a fantastic afternoon orienteering in Sherborne woods. Everyone enjoyed the sunshine whilst navigating through the woods to find the different markers using their maps. Great teamwork was demonstrated by all.
Nine of our KS2 children went to Chipping Campden High School to participate in a Pentathlon event. The children took part in a variety of different sporting activities including football, basketball, curling and parachute games.
We gained points from each game which came to a grand total. Out of 7 schools we managed to come home with the bronze medal! The children should be very proud of their efforts.
High 5 Netball
On Thursday 9th March, our Year 5/6 Netball squad participated in the first round of the High 5 Netball Tournament. Having little experience of netball, the children defeated all the odds and came second in their group. They then played the winner of group 2 and won! This meant they were then in the final and played a fantastic match narrowly missing out and coming second in the tournament. Miss Foote was incredibly proud of their performance as this meant her team qualified for the second round.
The second round was held at Kingshill School the following Tuesday (13th March). The children showed leaps of improvement throughout the tournament and can hold their heads high due to their inspired performances. Their last match was an impressive performance, the children competed extremely well and thoroughly deserved their victory. They look forward to competing again in the future.
County Cross Country 2018
Three of our pupils represented the North Cotswolds in the county cross country event at St Edwards School in Cheltenham on Saturday 10th March 2018.
All three of our runners performed extremely well in their respective races and should be extremely proud of their achievements! There was plenty of muddy moments and all three of them were extremely happy with their performances.
Events like this go to show that our school can compete at the highest level and we are starting to put our name on the map with all our success!
Year 3/4 Gymnastics Competition
Our Year 3/4 gymnasts competed alongside Cold Aston at Cotswold school in a Gymnastics competition on 25th January 2018.
Each child had to complete their own floor routine as well as two different vaults. The children had little experience of this before practising for this competition and all of them threw themselves into the challenge.
Each and every performer should be very proud of what they have achieved and we look forward to the KS1 children taking part in a similar event later this year.
