Sporting Updates Feb 2020

Football Results

Despite the awful weather the Year 5 girls played three fixtures against Chaulden, Greenway and Potten End. Sadly the girls lost all of the matches but must be commended for their determination and perseverance playing against more experienced teams. This was the girls first season playing together, some of them never having played in a team before. We hope they will continue to play next year and take up the opportunities we offer to play in school.

The Year 5 boy have their last fixture next week. The Year 6 boys played their last match against Potten End and lost 4-1 in very challenging weather conditions. The team have been very fortunate to benefit from the support of their parents at the games and particularly Mr Young who has given up his time to arrange additional coaching sessions and on occasions referee a match. The boys showed their appreciation by presenting him with a trophy and signed picture of the team. Thank you Mr Young.

Netball

Our Netball team have had a busy month playing Bishop Wood, Bridgewater and Greenway. Congratulations to the girls on their astounding win against Greenway. Their last two fixtures are next week.

Athletics

 The Year 6 class hiked up to Ashlyns to compete against other Dacorum schools in an athletics festival.
