Well done to all the boys who played against Goldstone. Our first team built on their draw last week, by beating even tougher opponents this week. An early strike from Hayden gave us a one nil lead. This became 1-1 just before half time, after some good offensive play from Goldstone. However, the boys remained positive and stole a win midway through the second half, when Hayden scored another stunning strike. This time, the defence remained solid and the score stayed at 2-1 to West Blatch. Our first win of the season!
Well done also to our second team. All bar one of the players are new to the squad this year, so the first game was always going to be a learning process for the boys. They did extremely well, however, to go into half time at one all. Unfortunately, a strong Goldstone team came at us hard from the start of the second half and ended up eventual 4-1 winners. Despite the final score, it is clear there's a lot of talent in our second team! I'm sure the points will roll in shortly!
Well done to the boys who represented the school in football against Aldrington. They battled hard to earn a promising draw, with the score being tied at 2 - 2. After dropping behind twice, our pupils showed real resilience to come back with spectacular goals from Sulaiman and Hayden. Particular praise must also go to Tyrese, who has now made the step up from our reserve team. He kept us in the game with a series of brave, defensive blocks, during a period where the opposition were shooting with great accuracy! We cannot wait for the next game!
A huge well done to our netball team. We had a fantastic start to the league, a win of 10-0 against Mile Oak Primary. Amelia as captain this week led the girls to a fabulous victory with Naima scoring 9 goals and Leah 1. Well done girls, we are really proud of you!
On Thursday 3rd October Mr Byrne from Hove Park School joined us, along with some of his colleagues, for a morning of iPad training. He worked alongside children in Year 5 and 6, setting out rules for iPad use and teaching them how to organise a suite of apps. They then learnt how to save a Pages document using an app called Showbie, which would enable both the children and their class teacher to review their work and access it at a later date. The classes were buzzing, the children were fully engaged and really enjoyed using the iPads in their first of many lessons.
On Friday 27th September we had a Roald Dahl dress up day. It was a huge success and it was lovely to see so many children dressed as their favourite character from one of his famous stories. There were Matildas, Fantastic Foxes, BFGs, Willy Wonkas, Georges (complete with bottles of Marvellous Medicines) and Witches aplenty! Well done to everyone for making it such a memorable occasion and thank you to the students from Hove Park who came to join us for the day. Photos of the day are to follow!
