Mr Casper sent us this report of the recent soccer tournament...
“It was a great tournament with 20 teams competing. Yr6 A team were with me and were fabulous (as all our teams were). They won their group with 4 wins from 4, scoring 13 and conceding 5.
Then they won their quarter final 2-0 with another commanding performance.
Next came the semi final. We dominated the opposition, had a goal disallowed, a penalty saved and hit the post amongst other good chances. Unfortunately, we lost in the penalty shoot out and narrowly missed out on the final. There were some tears, fate dealt them a cruel hand!
It’s a beautiful game and we had so much more drama than the Premier League. A big well done to all concerned for a fantastic effort. “
The whole school ran a mile for Macmillan Cancer Support. The combined efforts of each class added up to whole marathon. This year it was extra special because we ran it in memory of a fantastic teacher and friend of the school - "Mrs Winch".
