Students' Sporting Achievements
Year 5/6 Clatford v Andover
Tonight I had the pleasure of watching our Year 5/6 football team play in a friendly match against Andover C of E.
The children were eager to start and looked fantastic in their kit! They played two halves of 20 minutes and for the full 40 minutes were non stop! When they weren’t playing they were running the line. All boys were respectful and showed great sportsmanship! To top it all off we won!
Special mention goes to Jacob (year 6) who scored a hattrick and Henry (year 6) who payed the first half in goal, he made lots of fantastic saves and took on every challenge head on!
Andover have invited us to them to play another game with them, which we will arrange for after Christmas!
Well done Boys!
Yeah 6 Indoor Athletics: POSTPONED!
Year 5/6 Tag Rugby Festival
This week it was year 5 and 6 turn to compete in a tag rugby festival with other local rural schools. We went to Hurstbourne Tarrant as a team of 12 and played against 4 other teams across the afternoon!
The team played so well as a team despite only having two practises together! We started off a bit rusty and it took us a little while to get back into the swing of things. But the children worked well together encouraging each other and playing to our strengths. Special mention goes to Rosie (year 5) who when ever she got the ball ran fearlessly towards the try line and Jacob (year 6) who made some impressive tags one after the other and scored an impressive try after running nearly the length of the pitch! But today it really was a team effort and each member of the rugby team brought a different quality to the game which helped us to achieve…
3rd place in the festival! Well done Clatford!!
Next week we have the Year 6 indoor athletics where we will be sending two teams to compete at John Hanson!
Tag Rugby Festival 2021
Today we have had another amazing opportunity to compete in a tag rugby festival with other local rural schools. It was the first time many of the children had competed for the school, after all of the fixtures were cancelled last year due to COVID.
The Year 3/4 tag rugby team played well as a team despite only having two practises together! I know as they continue to move through the school they will thrive in a sport they all enjoy! Special mention goes to Gwen (year 4) who literally threw herself into every rugby game she competed in and Bear (year 3) who made some fantastic tags and scored impressive tries!
The children came 3rd in the festival and represented Clatford well. Sharing our school values on and off the pitch!
Next week we have the Year 5/6 Tag Rugby festival!
Hockey Tournament 2021
KS2 Hockey Tournament.
I am so proud of the KS2 hockey team who played valiantly at the John Hanson hockey tournament on Tuesday 2nd November. During the tournament, the children worked well as a team and showed great sportsmanship to each other and apposition. The team of 10 hockey players, lead by our team captain Eloise (Year 6) managed to get third place, a brilliant victory out of 12 teams from local schools!
The team really were a force to be reckoned with; special mention goes to Arthur (Year 5) who scored some fantastic goals, even the ones that didn’t count, and Caroline (Year 4) who is the definition of small but mighty! Her fearless character on the pitch and her ability to encourage the team was a great asset.
This team will continue to do well as they move through the school and I for one cannot wait to see them progress in a sport that they clearly love!
Well done team Clatford!
