Year 6 Kwik Cricket

 

Ten pupils from Class 6 recently represented Priory School in a Kwik Cricket tournament at Bournemouth School. Although the results did not go our way, all of the games were close and we saw some terrific batting. Several pupils had to show a great deal of resilience with the tricky art of over-arm bowling; it was a fun afternoon and we had great support from the grassy bank by our pitch, as the waiting batters treated us to some impromptu cheer leading!

Boys Football v. Burton

9d704e2f-527c-4312-abaa-6c6d914b897a

 

Our Boys football team played their last league fixture of the season against Burton on Tuesday. They put in a fantastic team effort, with the squad low on numbers we had no substitutes available, meaning each player had to give their all for the whole forty minutes. Some great attacking play saw Priory score three goals, with chances for more. We eventually lost 6-3, but the game was played in a great spirit and enjoyed by all.

Year 5 Tag Rugby – BCS Tournament

On Friday, twelve pupils from Class 5 represented Priory School at the Bournemouth Collegiate School Tag Rugby tournament, participating with eight other schools.

 

Despite limited training, the squad did terrifically well, really bonding as a team over the matches played. Priory won 5 out of their 8 games, drawing one and being narrowly defeated in two. This ensured a second-placed finish, a fantastic achievement. In fact, Priory went up against the eventual winners, Park School, in their final match, in with a chance of being champions. Although they did not quite achieve it this time, the team showed great potential and this Priory School rugby team will go from strength to strength in Year 6.

 

Tag Rugby Festival

 

On Wednesday 21st February a squad of twelve boys and girls from Class 5 & 6 represented Priory School in the Tag Rugby Fair Play Festival at Bournemouth Rugby Club. With the sun shining, over 300 children from 30 schools enjoyed a fantastic day of rugby. Priory School played five matches, winning four of them, which was a terrific effort. Our pupils demonstrated great teamship and were respectful and impeccably behaved throughout the day.

Sporting opportunities!

It was so lovely seeing lots of children taking part in school clubs that are run by our teachers! This week we saw children taking part in Tug of War competitions ran by Mr Swain, Netball practise ran by Mrs Kelly, Football practise ran by Mrs Miller and Rugby classes ran by Mr Croutear. Oh and we must not forget Miss Deay and Mrs Moss who were exercising children’s vocals in Glee club and Miss Kelly who was exercising children’s brains during her maths club!

 

Well done to our Priory football team who played against Christchurch Juniors. Although we did not win the match, the children played really well and really persevered. We had lots of near misses, they held their positions well and gave Christchurch Juniors a really good match. Well done!

Our staff believe in an active school, we had training today to gain more ideas on how we can make our lessons more active.

 

The Department of Health’s “Childhood obesity: a plan for action” strategy states primary schools should deliver 30 minutes of “moderate to vigorous” activity for pupils every day through active break times, extra-curricular physical education (PE) clubs and active lessons – with parents responsible for providing another daily 30 minutes.

We are commited!
