Our busy and successful sporting year continues! Over the course of this term we have taken part in a variety of competitions. It started brilliantly with the Year 3 and 4 hockey competition. The children got all the way to the final, only losing 1-0 in extra time. We did, however, qualify for the county finals as a result! Next came the Year 4 and 5 basketball. Again, very impressive – getting through to the town finals in their first competition. In the finals they performed brilliantly winning the bronze medal!
   
The following week saw our Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby team play in the County Finals. Against very difficult opponents they performed impressively and should be very pleased with their efforts. The amazing gymnasts in Year 1 represented Thorplands in the County Finals too. They did their very best and came a credible 7th – in the whole of Northamptonshire.

   
Our Girls in Year 5 and 6 have had a brilliant end to the term too. They took part in a Tag Rugby tournament, winning 4 out of 5 games and receiving a silver medal. They also played in a cricket tournament where they won 4 out of 4 games, qualifying for the town finals.
   
Finally, to cap off a very busy sporting term, the Year 5 and 6 Athletics team took part in a Town Competition which involved 27 schools. All the children competed very well and their combined score meant that we finished in 4th place overall – an extremely impressive result.

Sporting Gallery - June 2017

Our Year 5 and 6 children have recently taken part in an Indoor Athletics Competition. We did fantastically, finishing 7th out of 28 schools. In particular we had Abel and Dumitriana coming first in their competition as well as Felix and Jaleel being the quickest boys in their race. A very good achievement.

The Year 1 and 2 children have a gymnastics tournament coming up and have been working hard in an after school club, as have Year 4 and 5 in Archery.
Across the school, all of the children have been developing their gymnastic skills during PE. We all look forward to getting outside soon with the weather beginning to improve!
