Girls Football Hampshire Games Finals 


On Friday 8th March, the Year 5/6 Girls Football Team travelled to Stoneham Lane Football Complex to take part in the Hampshire Games Finals. Every team attending had qualified from their area tournaments so we knew it was going to be a challenging day. During the morning league, the girls worked hard to finish joint second in the group. With one less goal scored (joint goal difference) we qualified for the Championship League in the afternoon. The girls went into the afternoon knowing they had to perform well to reach the semi-finals and they did just that. As the afternoon progressed we were undefeated in our group, scoring some excellent goals along the way, meaning the girls were thrilled to make the semi-finals. We faced a good St Peter's side from Farnborough in the semi-final. A dominant 3-1 win saw us through to the final where we met local school, Wellstead Primary from Hedge End. The game was tough and both sides played some excellent football. An in-swinging corner was met by a superb volley from Flo, which gave us a 1-0 lead. Wellstead played some fantastic football and our team worked incredibly hard for each other, tracking back and helping out teammates, as we have done all season. In the dying seconds, Wellstead had a free kick in a good position. The ball looks destined for the corner but an exceptional save from Ramona tipped it over the bar and gave us the 1-0 victory. The joy on the girls' faces at the final whistle realising they would go home with a winners medal was wonderful and so well-deserved. We are very proud of you all, girls!


Hampshire Plate Semi Final v Stoke Park – Monday 11th March 2024


This was a fixture the boys were excited to play in. They have progressed so much since the first round of this tournament and were confident especially playing on their own field. From the very first whistle you could see how much the boys wanted to win. They were able to win possession of the ball and were relentless in attack. After 10 minutes they found themselves 3 – 0 up and were playing with a real confidence. They worked hard for each other and had started moving the ball around very nicely. Goals from Leo, Reuben, Luca and a hat trick for Jake gave us a 6 – 0 lead at half time. The boys continued to play well in the second half and Blake and Radley added their names to the score sheet. At the final whistle the boys had kept a clean sheet and won well but the most pleasing thing was how they continued to try and pass the ball around and a few of them had a spell playing in a different position to normal. The boys will now wait to find out in the final of the tournament to see if they can finish their season off on a high.


Girls Football Hampshire Plate Semi-Final


On Thursday 14th March, the girls faced Weeke Primary School from Winchester in the semi-final of the Hampshire Plate. For the first 10 minutes of the game, Weeke were dominant on the ball, showing us we were up against a well-organised, skilful side. Chances were created at both ends, but a well taken goal and a fantastic lob meant our team went into half time with a two goal deficit. The second half saw our midfielders growing into the game and a change to our formation meant Megan had more of the ball in midfield and made a number of great passes up the pitch to put the opponents under pressure. We had a few shots on goal from Lyra and Siena which narrowly missed the target. Any further chances from the opponents were swiftly dealt with by Rayah and Ramona scooped up any dangers with calmness and control. 


The second half of the game saw Eva and Ava breaking up numerous phases of play and always looked for a short pass to the wings where Mia worked hard to set us on the attack. As the final whistle was blown, it wasn’t to be; but a superb effort and a great game. We congratulated Weeke Primary and wished them good luck for the final. 


Sportshall Athletics

On Tuesday 19th March Miss Coxhead had the pleasure of taking a group of Year 3 and 4 children to compete in an indoor athletics competition. Whilst at the event, the children participated in a variety of field events including speed bounce, long jump, javelin and chest push. The children had been training at school for this event and you could see that their hard work really helped them in their performances. After the field events, the children then participated in a variety of running races. They worked well as a team and it was lovely to see the support they gave one another throughout the competition. Not only did our athletes represent the school beautifully, they also ended up winning the event! Well done to all of those who took part.


Physical Activity Festival


On Tuesday 26th March, 15 pupils from across all year groups attended an Eco-friendly Physical Activity Festival at Places Leisure. This event was led by students from Barton Peveril College who were given the aim of creating an environment promoting physical activity in a fun way. The activities included team building challenges, orienteering navigating a trail, cycling and archery. The pupils represented our school superbly. They embraced the new activities with enthusiasm and bravery, while showing excellent communication and team-work skills.
