Y6 Dodgeball Report

Y6 pupils enjoyed some fierce competition at a recent Dodgeball competition.

The dodgeball competition was a new event which we haven’t entered before, but decided we would like to give it a go. Learning as we played, the pupils managed to develop at an amazing pace.

In the first round we played three matches and out of these we won the first match remarkably quickly. The second match taught us a lot about tactics and we began to develop our own style of play leading to another win in our third match. Consequently our scores put us through to the next round where we had to play a team who were top of another group. Again we played well as a team and supported each other leading to a win. This put us through to the final match. We played very well and with great determination but unfortunately we didn’t manage to win the final. However, their place in the final match means that our team will go through to the next Telford and Wrekin competition to battle for a place at the School Summer Games in July.

The team all enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of the games and the fast pace of the sport. I think we will be entering again!

Y6 Bikeability

Thank you for returning the consent form for your child. ”Bikeability” is a national cycle training programme which is delivered by fully qualified instructors from the Telford & Wrekin Road Safety Department.

Areas covered include pedal positions and gears, safe start and stop, quick controlled stop, signalling, passing parked cars and junctions.

The sessions will be held on four consecutive Tuesdays –
5th February, 12th February, 26th February and 5th March

The pupils will be divided into two groups, with one group session in the morning, and another in the afternoon.

Each Tuesday morning the children need to bring their own bicycle, which must be in a roadworthy condition, and a properly fitting helmet – please see your checklist.

Would you also please ensure that they bring suitable outdoor clothing (waterproof if it’s wet, hat and gloves if it’s cold) and wear sensible shoes.

The ability to ride a bike safely on the road is a very important and valuable skill, and I am pleased that your child is taking part in the training.

Y6 School Games Rounders

School Games Rounders

On Tuesday 3rd July, 11 year 6 children went to a rounders tournament for the School Games in Shrewsbury. We played North Shropshire, South Shropshire, East Shropshire and Trinity. We were representing Telford and Wrekin. We lost every game apart from our game against Trinity where we beat them 6-3. In another game, against East Shropshire, we lost six to six and a half and we were so annoyed! We had a great day and enjoyed taking part.

Y6 Rounders Tournament

On Monday 18th June, a group of twelve year 6’s (Alex, Daniel, Josiah, Callan, Abraham, Charlie, Oliver, Pip, Ella G, Ella F, Rosie and Imogen)went to a rounders tournament at Charlton school Telford. In our first game we played Meadows school and unfortunately lost. During the game almost our entire team got out because we weren’t yet used to the rules and only two people were left by the end. Fortunately in the second game we did very well as we hit lots of rounders and fielded well. The next two games we also won using the tactic of the backstop throwing to second base to make sure the other team could not score half a rounder. In the next game we were unlucky to lose as the ball kept going into the bushes! We drew our final game but unfortunately that wasn’t enough to take us through to the knockout stages. We finished 3rd in our pool which we thought was a good result.

Y6 Tag Rugby Tournament

On the 13th of May, 12 of the year six pupils took part in a tag rugby tournament at Newport Rugby Club. All of the games were seven minutes long and there was seven teams that took part.

In the first game we were up against St Peters Edgmond but unfortunately we lost 2-1. We scored first but Edgmond came back with two good tries. In the second game we played Lilleshall and we drew 4-4. They scored but then we came back and made it 1-1. They scored another try but once again we made it 2-2. They scored another try but then we scored two tries in a row to make it 4-3. Then in the final minute Lilleshall scored using the one step rule to their advantage and it ended 4-4. In the third game we played St Patricks and drew 1-1 as we were unlucky with only having one hand on the ball not two. In the fourth game we played St Peter’s and Pauls and lost 3-2 with tries from Ella G and Josiah. In the fifth game we played St Gorges and we won 3-1. With tries from Oliver, Callan and Edward. In the sixth game we won 4-2 against Moorfield. Callan scored 2, Alex scored 1 and Josiah scored 1.
