Sports News for February

Indoor Athletics Final– 7th February
After success at the semi-final stage at Francis Combe Academy, the Year 5 and Year 6 athletics squad attended the final at Rickmansworth School. With some of the best athletes from the Three Rivers District in attendance, we knew we had to perform at our very best if we wanted to win. After some great relays, throwing, jumping and running, the results were announced. Chorleywood finished 3rd overall.  Well done to all who participated in this event.

Cross Country 11th February
On Monday 11th, ten students took part in a cross country event which was held at York House School. The children had to run a course of 1.97 km, which included plenty of obstacles along the way.  As a team, we finished third overall.  Well done to the Year 5 and Year 6 students who took part in the event. A special well done to Luke who finished 2nd in the race. 

Year 4 Boys’ Football – 12th February
Chorleywood Year 4 boys took part in their first match of the year and it was against our friends from Little Green School. This was the first time the boys had played together, although by watching the game you would not have believed it, as the boys gelled straight from the start and took the lead after some fine work from Thomas. Sammy was also on the score sheet for this game.  The final score was 4-2 to Little Green. Well done to all of the boys who took part

Girls’ A Team Football – 14th February
Thursday 14th February saw the girls’ A team take on The Russell School in the league. This was no ordinary game, as the winner of the match would win the league!  Both teams were nervous at the start of the game; not many chances were created and some of the passing was not quite to the standard of previous games. With the score at 0-0, both teams pushed for the win with some unique formations being used. It was The Russell School who managed to get the winning goal to win the game 1-0.  Even though Chorleywood lost the match, we still made it through to the league finals, which took place at Parmiter’s School on Thursday 28th February.

Boys’ B Team Football – 26th February
No matter what teams are playing this is always a close game between Chorleywood Primary and The Russell School. The game started with some very positive football being played by the home team. Chorleywood were keeping hold of the ball and making sure every inch of grass was being graced by the football. With both teams creating chances, it was The Russell who made the break through just before half time after Chorleywood failed to clear the ball away. The reaction to going 1-0 was amazing as Chorleywood were almost level within minutes of the restart. Half time came and went with the same story as the first half being replayed. Some great goalkeeping from Stanley kept us in the game along with some lovely passing moves created by Luke, Joshan, Ali and Zach. As we pushed for the equaliser Chorleywood were hit in the counter attack and conceded deep into the second half and knocked the wind out of our sails. The game ended 2-0 but it was not a score line that reflected the play.

Girls’ A Team Football – 28th February
On Thursday 28th February, the girls’ football A team participated in the finals tournament at Parmiter’s School. The tournament was a round robin competition, which meant we played four games in total. The first game was against Little Green School; we were very unlucky to lose 1-0 to a last minute goal. Our next match was against Devine Saviour.  After having much of the possession, we lost 2-0 following an own goal and a simple mistake in defence. The third match was against The Orchard School, which we won 2-0 thanks to goals from Ajla. The last game of the day was against The Russell School. This was by far the best game of the tournament, as Chorleywood created lots of chances and defended amazingly well.  Chorleywood Primary School finished third out of seventeen teams, which is a great achievement!

Well done to all of the children who took part in the events throughout February!
