Spring Term 2019 Sports Report
It has been a very busy and varied spring term of sport. The term started with the Year 5 and 6 pupils attending the Cluster Indoor Athletics event at The Chantry. In a very fast and frantic afternoon of track and field events we discovered we had a talent for obstacle races! A very enjoyable afternoon was had by all.
It was then the turn of Year 2 who attended a multi skills festival, where they had an exceedingly busy and fun afternoon taking part in a range of different activities organised by The Chantry Young Leaders.
The next event was the Bex Lloyd Indoor Girl’s Football Tournament for Key Stage 2 girls. We had so many enthusiastic participants that we took 2 teams to the event. Abberley B put in a strong performance in their group matches but Abberley A went one better and won their group qualifying for the final. In a very tense final against Martley, Abberley eventually emerged victorious and were crowned Cluster Champions! Well Done girls!
In the last event before the half term holiday a team from Year 1 and 2 took part in the Mini Olympics. After a very noisy and colourful opening ceremony where we all enjoyed waving our homemade flags representing Holland, the children gave their best in a range of relay races. We were delighted to be awarded a bronze medal for coming third and finished the afternoon with a very tired but happy group of children.
After the half term holiday the football season resumed. After some strong performances the team finished the season in fourth place, winning 5 matches, drawing 2 and losing 2.
At the end of February we were very proud to discover that Ruby and Oliver from Year 5 had been selected to represent the West Worcestershire District at the County Cross Country Finals. Both children had a great experience on finals day at Woverley High School.
It was then the turn of the fantastic Year 6 netball team who competed in The Chantry Cluster tournament. The team dominated the tournament by winning all of their games and were crowned Cluster Champions. The team then went on to represent The Chantry Cluster at the West Worcestershire District Finals. A brilliant performance again saw the team winning all their matches even against some much larger primary schools. The team also attended the West Worcestershire small primary school netball tournament where they again won all their games. The team finished the end of an undefeated season as West Worcestershire small and large primary school champions. An amazing performance netballers!
The last event of the term involved teams from Year 3-4 and Year 5-6 attending the Cluster Tag Rugby finals at The Chantry. The children had been benefitting from some specialist coaching from Worcester Warriors during PE and were keen to put the skills they had learnt into practice. Year 3-4 had a great experience and improved with each game they played. Year 5-6 put in some very strong performances and qualified for the final, which they narrowly lost to Clifton. Congratulations to Niamh (Year 4) and Adam (Year 6) who were talent spotted as the most promising players.
We are now looking forward to the summer term with lots of exciting events coming up including Year 3-4 football, Tiny Olympics, rounders, bell boating and of course Sport’s Day!
