Sports News for June

This term has been extremely busy with plenty of sporting activities taking place including rounders, football, multi skills & sailing.

Rounders

Kicking off this half term was the mixed rounders league, which saw us play games against Maple Cross, Sarratt, Christ Church and The Russell School.  This was the first year we have taken part in the rounders league and saw us being successful with some close games.

Football

The Year 6 boys’ football team took part in the consortium tournament which involved schools from across Three Rivers. With some very strong teams on show the boys battled hard in the scorching weather. After making it through the group stage it was on to the semi-final game which saw us play against Rickmansworth Park School. The game was played at a frantic pace with some early chances coming our way. Unfortunately, we could not make the break through and the game went to penalties. It was not to be as we lost 3-2 on penalties after a great game.

Well done to all the boys who took part in the event.

Sports Day

This half term also brought us one of the most exciting events in the school calendar, Sports Day!  Luckily for us this year, the weather was perfect for children to showcase every sporting ability they have. We kicked off with the field events, which consisted of javelin/bean bag throw, quoit balance, skittles, speed bounce, tri golf, long jump, water race, hockey dibble, obstacle race and target throw. At every event you could see a smiling face and the sounds of enjoyment, not only from the children, but also the parents. After the field events it was time for the KS2 relay races and the KS2 individual races.

Triathlon

Some of our Year 4 students took part in a triathlon which was held at The Russell School. The children started the triathlon off with 5 laps of the pool before sprinting to the bike station where they would complete 3 laps of the field. Once the 3 laps were achieved it was time for the 3 lap run around the school.

Well done to all the children who took part and produced some amazing times.

Multi Skills

It was the annual Year 1 multi skills event held at Christ Church School on Tuesday 26th June. The children performed very well within their groups whilst participating in different events. Well done to all the children that participated in the event.

Swimming

This term, Years 3 and 4 have been having regular swimming lessons at William Penn Leisure Centre.  Our aim is to ensure that every pupil is able to swim over 25 metres by the time they leave Chorleywood Primary School at Year 6. 

Due to the high level of swimming ability, some children were invited to take part in a triathlon held at The Russell School.

Sailing

This term Years 5 & 6 have enjoyed some sailing lessons held at the Aquadrome in Rickmansworth.  The children have learned how to set up a sail and steer and also how to get themselves back aboard their boat should they happen to fall in!  After they had learnt the basics, they were able to go out on the lakes and put into practice all of these skills!
 

Other News

 

On Sunday 10th June,  7 of our children ran the Watford 5k Race for Life (Ruhi, Annabelle, Zoe, Ajla, Neve, Sofie and Siri, with Summer cheering on).  They all completed it successfully in really good time, and have raised more than £500 for cancer research!
