Y6 Everton Mini-Kickers Pics

Images from the Year 6 football team’s mini-kickers tournament at UCEA. The team came second out of eight – a great achievement! Well done everyone. Thanks to the parents for supporting the team.

Congratulations to the Mini-Kickers

The Year 1 and Year 2 Everton Mini-Kickers tournaments have taken place in the last two weeks and we have taken part in both competitions. We had one team of Year 1s competing last Friday and one team of Year 2s competing tonight. There was great sportsmanship shown throughout and the boys and girls who took part were a credit to our school. Well done to all who took part!

The Year 1s came second in their tournament; the Year 2 A team came third in their group and the Year 2 B team also came third in their group.

Thank you to all of the parents for supporting us!

Cross Country Competition Commences

There was a great turnout for the first cross country race of the season. Twenty Our Lady Star of the Sea pupils made their way to Woodfall to take part in the competition. It was nice to see so many of the competitors supporting other members of our school. Well done to all of the children who raced and thank you to all of the parents who supported them!

 

 

 

A festival of rugby

On Friday, we took a group of 30 children down to the Whitby Sports and Social Club to celebrate the start of the Rugby World Cup.

For those of you who aren’t aware, the Rugby World Cup started on Friday and it is extra special this year because it is taking place in the UK!

The 30 Year Six children were split into three teams of ten, and after parading their national anthem (they were assigned South Africa) and some fine vuvuzela playing from Olivia, they started playing.

The afternoon was very much an occasion to enjoy rugby and was played in a friendly nature between all schools involved however they did present an award for the best boy and girl on the afternoon.  We were very proud of Ella, who was presented with this award and rewarded with a rugby ball!

Did you enjoy the afternoon, Year Six?

Sports Days

Foundation, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Sports Days have all taken place over the last few weeks and it pleases me to say that all were successful!

It was great seeing so many children actively involved in competitive sport and competing to the best of their ability.  Well done to all involved!

Here are a few pictures of the Key Stage 2 Sports Day. Key Stage 1 and Foundation Sports day photographs will be added shortly.

Another second place at the Wirral Swimming Finals

On Friday night we took a squad of eight swimmers to the Wirral Swimming Finals. The children performed exceptionally well on the night and all came away with at least one medal; some with more!

We were competing against the 12 strongest teams on the Wirral all having qualified from their respective local finals. The children finished joint second on the night (for the second successive year), tied on 120 points with Oxton St Saviours, and Prenton Prep took  the gold medal, finishing on 125 points.

We will hear over the next few days whether this result will take us through to the North West Finals; regardless of whether we are given this opportunity we would just like to say how proud we are of the children’s efforts in swimming this year.  They always give their all when representing the school!

Finch Farm Football

This afternoon, seven Year 2 children were given the opportunity to play football at Finch Farm, having qualified from their local area tournament.

The boys played extremely well but unfortunately fell just short on the day, losing 4 games and winning 1.  Their efforts were incredible though and given that they were a newly established team with very little training, they performed exceptionally well; they made the school very proud!  Most importantly, regardless of results, the boys had lots of fun and a great workout!  Well done all!
