Sports Autumn 2021

Opening Schools Facilities Fund

We have been very fortunate to have received funding to help us to buy equipment to facilitate coaching, equipment and afterschool clubs which has already been put to good use!

The landing mat has been purchased for our after school Gymnastic Club and the photos show the children using it for the first time. This week they used it for some cardio and conditioning and to work on some skills, they had soooo much fun! 

Our Football Club has proved to be a great success with 31 children signing up to learn new skills and for match practice ready for the forthcoming matches.

Year 3+4 Mixed Football Teams. Another afternoon at Whittington School where we played against Gobowen and Whittington A and B teams. This was a great practice for our upcoming tournaments next week.

A team of KS2 girls went to Oswestry School to compete in an inter- school football competition. They played 3 exciting matches and, for the first time playing as a team, did brilliantly, we will be working hard to build the team for future competitions.

KS1 Football - we took a team of 6 children to Whittington School to play 3 other teams in a friendly football festival. The children played 6 matches and all displayed enthusiasm and enjoyed their afternoon tremendously!

New Age Kurling - we had an amazing start to our 2021/22 sporting calendar with a double first at the Oswestry/Ellesmere cluster's Kurling competition. Our 2 teams got better and better as the competition progressed and 1 team went forward to the Certificates final and the 2nd team to the Trophy final. Both teams played some great games resulting in first place for them both in their respective finals! We look forward to being able to competing in more inter-school competitions!
