Sports News and Results
Chorleywood Primary School has continued to work closely with the Sports Partnership to ensure sport and competition are delivered to a high standard during these troubling times. We have managed to deliver a range of workshops and virtual competitions across the school.
Hertfordshire Schools Cross Country event
On Saturday 4th February, Siri (Y6), Zachary (Y5) and Oscar (Y5) represented Chorleywood Primary School at the Hertfordshire Cross Country event at Verulamium in St Albans.
The course was very tough, but the children pushed through and should be very proud of themselves.
Year 4 athletics tournament
Year 4 competed against The Russell, Sarratt and Christchurch at the athletics tournament semi-finals at St Clement Danes. Although we didn't get through to the finals, the children did extremely well. The boys had huge success in the track events.
Chloe Y4 - I absolutely loved the athletics tournament, it was so much fun. You got to do loads of races and it helped our mental health.
Ben Y4 - This was my favourite event because we were running so much. Even though we didn't win, it was so much fun. I liked the tunnel that you had to go through.
Well done to our Year 6 and Year 5 girls who competed in the netball league against Christchurch, Sarratt and The Russell. It was a very cold afternoon, but the girls played brilliantly. We finished 4th place.
Girls and boys' football friendlies against The Russell
We had a girls' friendly and boys' friendly against The Russell in preparation for our league matches after half term. This was a great opportunity to practise and the kids had a lot of fun. The football league will start after half term
Year 3 and Year 4 basketball - stay active workshop
Year 3 and Year 4 took part in a basketball workshop with the Three Rivers Partnership. They learnt skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting and then played some mini team games. The children have expressed that they would like to do more basketball in school, so we have managed to purchase equipment with the sports premium to allow for more basketball opportunities in school.
Joseph Y4 - I really enjoyed our basketball session because I learnt new things like how to control the ball. I liked Mr Harrington as he taught us well and showed us as well as telling us. I found the activities very fun!
Year 5 play leader training
Year 5 took part in the play leader training with the Three Rivers Sports Partnership. They learnt how to coordinate games for younger children to ensure they are all involved and active. They also learnt key leadership skills. In the afternoon, Year 2 came out so that Year 5 could show them what they had learnt.
Pele Y5- I really enjoyed our play leader training as we were able to create our own games to run for the Year 1 and Year 2 classes. We had to work well as a team and be creative with our games so that they were fun and exciting. We spent time planning our games and practiced before we ran them ourselves. I had a fun day!
Noah (Y4), Ben (Y4) and their PSA team won the national finals on Saturday. They are now the Junior Premier League U9 national (England) champions.
They won their matches 1-0, 2-1 and 3-0. Congratulations boys!
