Y3 Intra House Tag Rugby Tournament

3LS and 3KT have been enjoying learning tag rugby this term. This was a new experience for the majority of the children and they loved playing a new sport and exercising at the same time! The children showed great enthusiasm and team work throughout the six weeks, which culminated in a tournament to finish their learning experience.

Each team chose a team name and played in four rounds of matches. The semi finalists from 3LS were 'The Tigers'  v  'The Troublemakers' and from 3KT 'The Unbeatables'  v  'Despicable RFC'! Both semi finals were close games with 'The Troublemakers' and 'Despicable RFC' winning to play off in the final.

The final was played in fantastic spirit with all the other Y3 children cheering on their class team. After another close game, Despicable RFC came out as winners. Well done to all the children in 3LS and 3KT for participating with such enthusiasm and enjoyment. They were a pleasure to teach.

Y5/6 District Kwik Cricket Festival

All Saints children compete in the district Kwik Cricket Festival at Eversley Cricket Club. A mixed Y5/6 team for boys and girls competed in the festival, doing well to play in rainy conditions! It is the first time the girls have entered after participating in Chance To Shine sessions in school. The girls played with confidence and enthusiasm and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, finishing in a creditable 5th position.

The boys team showed their competitive spirit by winning all group stage matches and qualifying for the final. It was a very tight game with the boys ultimately losing out but finishing second.

Well done to all the players for playing with excellent team spirit and sportmanship.

Y3/4 Tag Rugby Festival

Children in Year 3 and 4 have recently had the opportunity to play tag rugby as part of the PE curriculum. We received such good feedback about enjoyment and feeling included, that a selection of children were chosen to take part in a development festival at Samuel Cody Sports College. The children thoroughly enjoyed their experience and loved the competitive element of playing and being part of a team. Their team effort was so brilliant that they actually won three of their four matches! Well done to the whole team for playing so enthusiastically, even on a very hot afternoon!

As part of our Chance To Shine cricket initiative, we were lucky to have a visit from Charlotte Edwards, the England Ladies Cricket Captain. All our Year 5 pupils have been learning cricket skills over a six week period. What an experience, to be coached by a top professional sportswoman!

Sports Mark

All Saints C of E Junior School are pleased to announce that for the second year running, we have achieved the Bronze Mark for the Sainsburys School Games Award.

This demonstrates our continued commitment to educating children in the importance of health and fitness and its benefits to their wellbeing and also to developing competition across various sports in the NE Hants district .

Cross Country

A successful cross country season, with five of our children ultimately qualifying for the inaugural County Championships for Junior Schools in Hampshire. All the children who competed in the league and fun run races gave their all and improved their long distance running skills over the season.

Hockey

Another fantastic season for the hockey team, with the All Saints ‘A’ team winning the finals of the Hampshire School Games and becoming Hampshire Junior Hockey Champions.

Well done to all the children who played, a huge achievement when you consider two thirds of the team were in Year 5 and competing against mostly Year 6 pupils from other schools.

A special thank you to Angie Cottee for coaching the team and attending the finals in her own time.

All Saints have now qualified for the finals five years in a row!

Year 3/4 District Schools Football Festival

This was the second football festival organised by the North East Hants games organiser. Each school was given a champions league name, with All Saints competing as Lazio!

It was a superb team effort with all the boys playing enthusiastically and giving their all. All Saints qualified through the group stages and worked hard to progress through the quarters and semis to play in the final against Elvetham Heath. With the score 1 – 1 at full time, the game when into a golden goal period. Unfortunately, Elvetham Heath were quicker off the mark and scored within seconds of kicking off.

We were proud that the boys reached the finals out of 16 schools, an excellent achievement.

A special thank you to TJ Taylor for playing in any position asked with a smile on his face!

Athletics

During the Summer Term, All Saints competed in an indoor and outdoor festival. Children competed in track and field events with the Year 5’s finishing in 3rd place and the Year 6’s in 4th.

There were some fantastic individual performances, notably from Ben Whitehead and Izzy Walton in the sprint events but everyone supported each other superbly in the team relay races and field events.

We have some talented runners in school and are looking forward to seeing them compete successfully again next year.

 

Sports Awards

The North East Hants Sports Awards took place earlier this month and our nominees had the opportunity to meet Debbie Flood an Olympic Silver medallist in rowing.

Debbie was a truly inspirational speaker who emphasised to the children the importance of working and training hard and never giving up. Debbie herself was told by a coach at the age of 18, that she would never be strong enough or good enough to be a top class rower!  Debbie actually started her sports career as a junior judo and cross country champion but went on to win 2 silver medals in the Olympics! So you never know what you are talented at unless you try.

We had several nominees across different categories covering the Olympic values. They were the Year 5/6 Hockey team, Skye Seaman, Effie Carter, Liam Williams and Angie Cottee. Well done to Skye Seaman for winning the award for Leadership and Angie Cottee for winning Inspiration.
