Year 4 Tag Rugby Festival

This evening, after school, we took 25 Year 4 children to take part in the Cheshire Oaks Schools Sports Partnership Tag Rugby Festival.

Whilst the theme of the afternoon was ‘taking part’ it didn’t stop the friendly competition between local schools kicking in.  Each and every one of the children fought hard to try and win each of their games (all in line with the rules of the game, of course). The children rotated through matches playing against other local schools including St Bernard’s, William Stockton, Rossmore, The Oaks and Parklands. As we took two teams to the festival, the children also had the opportunity to play against their class friends.  In what was a close encounter, I’m pleased to report that Our Lady’s won!

It was great to see so many of our children taking part in organised local area sport and experiencing what it is like to represent the school.  We were very proud of everyone for being such wonderful athletes!

A final thanks goes to Mr Poole for organising and for all of the parents that assisted with walking the children to the rugby festival.

Year 3 Mini Kickers

After coming so close last year, I am pleased to announce that our Year 3 Mini-Kickers won the recent football tournament hosted by Everton and are due to take a trip to Finch Farm in March of next year.

The Year 3 children, playing in official school colours for the first time, went down to the UCE Academy on Wednesday 28th September.  Knowing that a place at the Finch Farm tournament was up for grabs, they ‘ran their socks off’ winning 6 games and drawing 1.   Many goals were scored during the evening and equally all of the boys rotated in the net.  With no substitutes available on the night, the boys did extremely well to maintain a high level of energy during the tournament and we were very proud of their efforts.

Albeit early, let’s wish the boys good luck for when they go to Finch Farm later in the academic year.

Stay tuned on our sports blog and our Twitter account for updates on how we are progressing on the sporting field.

Year 5 win Spirit of the Games Award at Cheshire and Warrington Summer School Sports Finals

Eight Year 5 athletes did the school proud when they took part in the finals of the Cheshire and Warrington School Games in Orford today.

Competing against Year 6s from across the county, the team of boys and girls fought hard and competed in a great spirit throughout the day. The team represented not only our school but our area. They were the representatives of Cheshire Oaks School Sports Partnership, having come second to our Year 6 team in the Cheshire Oaks competition earlier this year. As the Year 6 team were all taking part in a dress rehearsal of Oliver, the Year 5 team stepped up to represent the school and they did so with pride. It was a great day and although we didn’t win the competition, we did win the Spirit of the Games award! It was thoroughly well deserved.

See pictures below from the sporting activities and some of the attractions that the children took part in throughout the day.

KS2 Sports Day Washout!

Thank you so much for all of your support at the Key Stage 2 Sports Day on Tuesday. It was great before the rain came. Thanks, also, for your patience and understanding in the aftermath! We won’t be re-running the rest of the events. We’ll announce the winner of the competition in school and post it online shortly afterwards.

Thanks to Morrisons for providing water for all of the children.

Great fun in the sun with our sponsored run!

Thank you so much for all of your fantastic support for our sponsored run. Having so many parents and family members there made the day so much more special. The children ran their hearts out and it was a great effort in the heat. Well done to all of the children. What a great day!
