The school cricket teams have been working hard on their batting, bowling, throwing and catching skills . This term, they got to put on their whites and compete against other schools in the town.  Well done to all  that competed.


NTSSF Football Final

The year 5/6 football team journey, written by Tobie and Owen

First game against Hopping Hill was 2-0. Goal scorers: Archie and William with his header.

Second  game against Delapre was 6-0 and through to the quarter finals.

Third game against Boothville was 2-2 (SdS win on pens) and through to the semi finals.  Charlie made a great save.

Fourth game against East Hunsbury was 17-0.  Tintin said that this was an easy game.

Fifth game against Boothville was 5-0 and through to the final. Owen said that the team thought this was going to be a hard game but we came out with a big win.

Sixth Game against Hopping Hill was 4-0. Tobie said that the team thought it would be a hard game as it was tight last time, but we did it and we won the cup! David said that it was a challenge and a brilliant experience.

Lifting the cup was a fantastic feeling; we celebrated with Mr Wainwright at McDonalds and today, in celebration assembly, with the whole school.

An impressive performance and a lasting memory of football in primary school. Mr Wainwright is extremely proud of the best team in the town!

High Five Netball

Today, the  year 5/6 high five netball team competed in a tournament and here is what Miss Bland had to say…

In terrific heat the team valiantly did themselves proud with some exciting matches, sadly we didn’t win any games but always played with great sportsmanship and a smile.


KS2 Sports Day

It was a scorching hot day for our annual sports day, but armed with water bottles, hats and sunscreen the house teams took to the field  to compete in a range of sporting challenges. Despite the soaring temperature, the children demonstrated perseverance and continued to give 100% effort.

A massive thank you to everyone who came and supported the children – there was a wonderful atmosphere.  The winning house after some fierce competition, including the parents and staff races, was the Dragons – congratulations on retaining the trophy.

Active Kids Vouchers

You can no longer collect the vouchers in store, but you have until  June 30th to hand them in –  please post them in the box at reception. Thank you to everyone that has donated their vouchers so far. Every voucher counts towards brand new cooking and sports equipment,  so it pays to find them all.



This week,  everyone in year 6 took part in a series of fun and inspiring activities based around the fundamental principles of staying healthy;  moving well, sleeping well, eating well and drinking well.

Move well and sleep well – this activity required some acting skills, as the children role played a day of a healthy lifestyle.


Eat well and drink well – a day of healthy meals planned, with 6 to 8 cups of water included and – using our maths skills – the amount of sugar in drinks worked out.

Everyone was shocked at the amount of sugar milkshake contains.

1 cube of sugar contains 4g. A 1ltr bottle of milkshake contains a 100g of sugar – 25 cubes., so a 200ml glass of milkshake contains 20g of sugar – 5 cubes!

A few of us have now been inspired to make healthier choices!

Basketball Tournament


Report by Chloe (year 6)

On Tuesday 19th January, students from year 5 and 6 went to the Weston Favell Academy basketball tournament. Our first match was against Boothville and we won 6-4. Unfortunately, we lost our second game against Deapre 8-6 (so not by much). We lost again, 10-8, against Hunsbury park, but our luck changed when we played Hopping Hill and won 16-0.  Our best match was when we played against The Abbey and won 18-0.  I personally believe that we wouldn’t have got the scores we achieved without all of the participants collaboration skills.
