Y6 Basketball Tournament
On Wednesday 4th October our Y6 Basketball team competed in the Locality Basketball competition. Five teams, including our own, took part in a round robin league tournament. Therefore we played four games. We drew the first game against East Preston Yellow (4-4) and won all of the next three games against Georgian Gardens Red (18-4), East Preston Green (8-6) and Georgian Gardens Black (24-2). As a result we won the overall tournament and the children were presented with the trophy. Luke S, Vinny, Matthew and Ella were the players representing our school and they all played brilliantly. It was a particularly strong team effort as we had no subs so they all played every minute of every game. They maintained high energy levels and thoroughly deserved the victory. Well done to all of them and thank you to Matthew's older brother, Luke, who helped to coach the team during the tournament.

We enjoyed finishing 3rd in a Year 4 Tennis tournament (see photos below). We also took part in a PE Enrichment day which took the form of a Football World Cup tournament. Representing Iceland (and perfecting their famous hand clapping chant!) we finished 4th in our World Cup (see photos below). A second place finish in Year 6 Stoolball added to our successes and this was all topped of the following week by winning the Water Polo competition. Well done to everyone that took part in any of these events. Add to this another very enjoyable School Games Day, which was brilliantly attended by friends and family and you have an extremely active couple of weeks. Congratulations to Yellow House for winning the School Games shield this year - it was, as ever, a very close competition.
