A massive well done to Olivia (St. Peter) who wowed us all in the netball match against Greenways this week. Olivia is a player who never gives up, tries her hardest and encourages her teammates and she certainly played a key role as GD preventing the opposition from scoring even more goals. Keep being amazing Olivia!

Congratulations to Lily (St. Peter) who received the award this week for her netball performance. Lily has impressed us all with her incredible improvement over the past few games, she really stood out as an amazing player to all. Keep up the hard work and fabulous effort Lily.

 

St George's Netball Team v Greenways- 26.3.18

 

On Monday 26th March the Year 5 and the Year 6 netball teams both took on Federation of Greenways. 

 

Year 6

Despite previous loses, the girls came out with fighting spirit, determined to win. Grace grabbed the ball, Lily leaped around like a frog, Daisy dodged her defenders, Isabel inched closer to scoring, Olivia outwitted her opponents, Maisie mastered the court, Rose refused to give up, Holly hunted down the ball and India impressed us all. 

The match was stopped at 4-0 down due to unforeseen circumstances which meant the girls were unable to fight back in the final quarter. This was their last league game however, there are tournaments to come after Easter, so we will take plenty of positives with us to the next games.

 

Year 5

Although the Year 5 team have only played one tournament together, they bonded well and showed excellent improvement since Alleyn Court. The girls listened to each other, they moved well and made some fantastic passes. Again, plenty of positives to take out of the game and progress to Year 6 next year. I hope to see them all continuing netball next year as they have played brilliantly and should be extremely proud of themselves- keep up the amazing work!

Running Miles (& Apologies) 23.02.18

 

At St George's, we are really running our socks off all the way from Year R to Year 6. We have been trying to run to checkpoints all over the UK by completing laps of the playground in 10 minutes, as part of a healthy and active life style! 
Here are some of the benefits running the mile can have: (https://thedailymile.co.uk/health-wellbeing/)

  • children become much fitter
  • a break from lessons helps children become more focused and feel invigorated
  • builds self-esteem and confidence
  • it's helpful in reducing childhood inactivity and obesity
  • it's fun and fully inclusive

Football League

 

Yesterday we had our league games, where some people from year 5 & 6 went to Thorpe Hall to play football. In our games we beat Sacred Heart 6-0, then we played Thorpe Hall and we beat them 3-0. The last game we played was tight, when we played again St. Michael's but we won 1-0, thank to Aidan scoring the winner! Christian, in year 6, saved some fantastic shots and kept a clean sheet! We had great fun and all played as a team. We have 2 more league games left.

Sportshall Athletics- 31.01.18

 

Congratulations to all that participated in the Sporthall Athletics at Garons today! Year 5&6 competed in the morning and 3&4 in the afternoon. We competed in a range of events from sprints, to obstacle relays, javelin, triple jump etc and had a wonderful time! There were some amazing throws that made the crowd go 'oohhhh' and 'ahhhh' and some really close races that had us clinging to the edge of our seats.

Thank you to all the parents and staff that helped out- without you these events can't take place

And last of all, thank you to the children for trying their best, encouraging others and being all round amazing sports men and women!
