Autumn Term 2019
We had 14 runners for the first Angmering Mile event of the year. Unfortunately we did not finish within the top three but all of the children put in a great effort, showing determination to complete the mile in the fastest time possible. Well done to all of our runners and in particular to those running for the first time, either as a KS2 pupil that hasn't taken part before or having stepped up from last year's KS1 1/2 mile. The distance is a challenge but all of our competitors have shown it can be done. Well done also to Ben and to Poppy who both finished within the top 10 of the boys and girls respectively. Results can be found on the Angmering Cluster Sport website. Having only three girls running made it difficult to challenge in the girls' race.
HAVING ONLY THREE GIRLS RUNNING MADE IT DIFFICULT TO CHALLENGE IN THE GIRLS' RACE. REMEMBER - THE ANGMERING MILE IS AN EVENT ANYONE IN KS2 CAN ATTEND, WHETHER YOU ARE IN RUNNING CLUB OR NOT. IT INVOLVES RUNNING JUST ONE MILE AROUND THE ANGMERING SCHOOL PLAYING FIELDS. WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE GIRLS TAKING PART TO ENSURE WE HAVE ENOUGH RUNNERS TO QUALIFY OUR SCORE. GIRLS, FERRING NEEDS YOU!
KS1 Four Square
Three of our children took part in our first locality Four Square Tournament. Elsie, George and Reuben all took part in the competition. They performed incredibly well, particularly as all of the teams were made up of six players and we only had three - they had to work twice as hard! Because of this they all won special achievement medals which they should be very proud of. Well done.
New Age Kurling
Four children from Year 5 took part in the first ever locality NAK tournament at East Preston Junior School. Kaiya, Phoebe, Paige and Hannah all represented Ferring brilliantly at the tournament. The teams of 4 players were divided into two mini-leagues of 4 teams, all of whom played against each other in head to head matches. The scores from each match were added together over the three matches and teams were then ranked in order accordingly. This led to play-offs for first and second place, third and fourth place, and so on. We played in the 5th/6th place play-off and finally finished 6th.
The tactics applied by the girls were varied and created very excited games. Well done for taking part in this new sport.
Autumn Term Virtual Multi-Skills
Once again we have competed in the Locality Virtual Multi-Skills event. Every child in the school gets the opportunity to compete against other schools in our locality through this competition which involves taking part in five different activities. They include Football Shooting, Target Throw, Obstacle Relay, Speed Bounce and Bouncing Dribble. All of the children gave it their best. They have competed against each class, they have competed against each House and against other schools. We will find out at the end of term how we did against other schools. Within school the results were: 4th Place - Yellow House, 3rd Place - Green House, 2nd Place - Blue House and the winners were RED HOUSE!!! Well done everyone!
Year 3/4 Football Tournament
We took a team of eight players from Years 3 and 4 to a locality football tournament at The Angmering School. Despite a very cold evening the children put in a fantastic effort and finished 4th out of the six teams competing. With five of our squad from Year 3 we probably had the youngest team, so this was a great finish. Having played our first four games we had drawn two and lost two and the team went in to the final game desperate for a win. They played so well and managed to achieve their goal with a 3-1 victory. All of the children did well, but a special well done to Ted who finished as our top scorer with four goals, Rudy (who was awarded our 'most sporting player' by Mr Gwynn) and Poppy (who was awarded 'most valuable player' by Mr Gwynn). Thank you and well done to all of the team: William H, Rudy, Ted, Jack P, Jackson, Mack, Florrie and Poppy. Well done and a BIG thank you as well to two of our Year 6 Sports Ambassadors, Chloe and Matthew, who came along in their role as sports leaders to help the team warm up and to coach them through the games.
Indoor Cricket Competition
Seven of our keen Year 6 cricketers took part, for the first time, in the Sussex Cricket 'Indoor Cricket Tournament'. We competed in a league which included St Margaret's, East Preston Juniors and West Park. We managed to win one of our games and lost the other two (very narrowly) coming third in the league overall. For a first attempt it was really good. The sportsmanship among our players was particularly good. It was a six-aside tournament and as we had seven players someone had to miss each game. They boys were amazing at selecting themselves to take turns to sit a game out which showed tremendous team ethic. Thank you and well done to Tom, Ralph, Thomas, Sammy, Ben, Luke and Nirran.
KS1 four Square
Once again some of our KS1 children took part in the Four Square tournament held at The Angmering School. It was great that the size of our team had increased since the Autumn Term event, which just shows how Four Square is growing in popularity. All of our team competed really well and their behaviour throughout was amazing - always listening to the instructions and happily doing as the leaders asked. They showed some great Four Square skills and tactics. Well done to Elliot, George, Reuben, Elsie and Asher.
Spring Term Virtual Multi-Skills
This term the Virtual Multi Skills event took place during Sport Relief Week. We used the opportunity for children to be sponsored to take part in the event. Thank you to everyone who donated to this great cause. Every child in school competed against other schools in our locality through this competition. As usual, all of the children gave it their best. They have competed against each class, they have competed against each House and against other schools. We will find out at the end of term how we did against other schools. Within school the results were: 4th Place - Yellow House, 3rd Place - Green House, 2nd Place - Red House and the winners were BLUE HOUSE!!! They have taken the title back from Red House. Well done everyone!
**Please note - due to the current concerns around Coronavirus there will be no more locality sports events for the remainder of the Spring Term. Summer events will be reviewed nearer the time.**
