Netball Match

This week has been very exciting as the Stafford netball team played their first match. Here is a report they wrote:

Team: Megan, Poppy, Macy, Lola, Chloe, Sophia, Grace, Jessica, Ben, Ellie

We took the school minibus to Pevensey and Westham School. We went with Mrs Springett and Mrs Rolf. When we arrived, we started warming up. We were split into 2 tems and each half of the team played 2 of the 4 quarters of the netball match. In the first quarter, we scored 2 goals and they didn't score any. In the 2nd quarter, we didn't score any and neither did they. Ub tge 3rd quarter both teams scored 2 goals. In the last quarter, we scored 3 goals, making the final score 7:2 to Stafford! We won!! Both teams shook hands afterwards. After that, we shared a packet of malted milk biscuits!

Thank you very much to Ms Rolf who has spent Mondays after school coaching our team and to Mrs Springett for giving up her time to support the trip.

Next week, the team are taking part in the South Downs netball competition - Good Luck! We will add a photo of the team after this event.

Personal Competition

Over the last 2 weeks, lots of children took part in our lunchtime competition, which included bouncing and catching a tennis ball as many times as possible in 30 seconds. All the children tried really hard to improve their scores and many succeeded! It was a very close competition In week 1, the winner was Jimmy (Year 5) with 42 bounces . The winner in the second week was Freddie (Year 5) who managed 46 times. There was also an exciting 'bounce off' between Haniyah (Year 5) and Freddie (Year 5) to decide the winner in week 2! Well done to all those who took part!

Football

Unfortunately, the football match that had been planned against Tollgate this week had to be postponed due to the weather. Hopefully we will organise another date soon.
