This week Year 5 and 6 went to the Rugby tournament held at the Dartford Valley Rugby Club. We were the first people to ever use these pitches. We won 2 games and drew one. We had a great time and everyone played really well.
Next week we are looking forward to the Athletics tournament.
Remember together everyone achieves more!
Over the last week we have being competing in sports events such as hockey and football. To start off the week on Monday the year 5/6 had a football tournament in Dartford. In the group stages they drew 1 game and won 3games they made it to the semi- finals but lost. Throughout the tournament all the players played very well.
The next day the on Tuesday the Year 3 and 4 had their hockey tournament in Dartford winning 3 of their matches they made it through to the finals winning 5-1 against Sedley’s school it was a great performance as some of the players have never played hockey.
Finally to end the week of sport the Year 5 and 6 played in another hockey tournament at the same venue as the Year 3 and 4 pupils. After winning all our group games we also made it through to the final winning 3-0 against last year’s winners Gateway, also the Years 5 and 6 did not concede a goal throughout the tournament. This now means both teams are going to be representing Dartford at the Kent school games in June.
This week Year 5 and 6 took part in their end of term Rugby competition. The children competed against each other in mini games for their houses. This was the first experience for some of the children in a competitive game of rugby. Every child took part and developed the skills they have been learning in PE this term.
The scores from both year 5 and 6 were put together and the winners from this tournament were Dover who will be awarded 100 house points. 2nd place was Leeds who will receive 75 house points, 3rd place was Rochester with 50 house points and 4th place was Hever with 25 house points.
In a few weeks time a chosen team of players will be representing our school in the Dartford Rugby competition.
To start with some children from Year 1 and 2 took part in the Fast 5s at Dartford Football Ground. The children played particularly well winning 4 of their games.
Lastly on Saturday 28th September children from Years 5 and 6 represented the school in the Early 7s tournament. We drew 2, lost 2 and won 1.
In the next few weeks we have KS1 cross country and Quick sticks hockey to look forward to.
Together everyone achieves more
