Year 5 and 6 Benchball Festival
What an incredibly successful afternoon we had at a benchball tournament at Broadwater School on Tuesday! Our Year 6 team stormed to victory, winning every single one of their matches, showing great teamwork and skill to beat all of the other schools. The Year 5 team were also very impressive, winning all but one of their matches, coming in second place overall.
For many of these children, it was their first time representing the school and we are so proud of how they all did!
Year 6 Football vs Cranleigh Primary
Our Year 6s went to Cranleigh Primary for a very enjoyable football match, played in great spirit. Despite being 2-1 down at half time, they attacked in numbers in the second half to eventually come out 4-2 winners. They showed great teamwork and were a delight to take - well done boys!
Year 3/4 Football vs Park Mead
On Monday, the Year 3 and 4s travelled to Park Mead for two football games.
Our Year 3s had a brilliant match! Down 5-2, they battled back to 5-4, before being awarded a penalty in the last minute. A goal from Kieran ensured a fantastic 5-5 draw.
The Year 4 team battled valiantly, creating lots of chances and working hard throughout. With a few key players away, they lost 6-1, but on another day, with a full team, the result would have been a lot different. A great afternoon of football all around!
Year 5 football vs Cranleigh Primary
Our Year 5 boys team had a very competitive fixture against Cranleigh Primary on Monday. After a poor first half, they found themselves 3-0 down. They were much improved after the break, creating chances and bringing the score back to 3-1. On another day, our chances would have gone in and it would have ended in a draw, but ultimately a defeat and lots of lessons about the importance of starting a match with lots of energy and purpose!
Year 4 football and Year 6 netball vs St Cuthbert Mayne
We had two brilliant performances vs St Cuthbert Mayne on Thursday! The Year 4s played in a very lively game of football. After racing into a 3-0 lead, they were pegged back and found themselves 4-3 down at half term. However constant pressure in the second half eventually resulted in goals flying in, and it ended up with a superb 8-5 victory. Well done boys!
The girls found themselves against tough opposition in the netball. They had to work really hard and play some excellent netball to eventually come out on top. A brilliant 20-13 victory - great work girls!
KS2 Football vs Tillingbourne
It was amazing to see around 40 children playing football against Tillingbourne on Thursday. Each team showed a superb attitude and great play against very tough opposition. Despite results not going our way, there were lots of positives to take away for the next fixtures. Well done everyone!
Sports Leader Training
Our Sports Leaders have had a very busy week. They started with some excellent marshalling of the Cross Country event. Then on Wednesday, they had their training, along with children from other schools. They learnt all about how to organise events, lead clubs and be great ambassadors for sport across the school. We look forward to seeing their leadership skills develop over the course of the year, as they support all the sport we do at school!
Year 3 and 4 Cross Country
What a fantastic afternoon of Cross Country racing we had when we hosted an event against children from Tillingbourne and St Cuthbert Mayne. With around 140 competing, there was a great atmosphere and the children all ran the final straight with a huge smile on their face and a great sense of achievement. We won three out of the four races, to show how brilliant our children are at their running. Well done to the winners Sam (Yr 3), Clemmie (Yr 3) and Ariana (Yr 4)
Year 5 football and netball vs St Cuthbert Mayne
We had some very exciting games on the last day before half term. In the football, in a topsy-turvy game, there were many goals, chances and great saves! After being up 7-5, St Cuthbert Mayne brought it back to 7-7, before a last minute goal from Olly ensured a superb 8-7 victory!
The netball was our first game for the Year 5s, which was a tougher match, but they learnt lots about how to play in a match situation.
Y2 Football Festival at Longacre
Last Friday, 15 of our Year 2s competed in a football festival at Longacre. For many it was their first ever match! It was absolutely brilliant to see them all show such enthusiasm and determination. We scored some great goals and showed excellent teamwork throughout. Many others remarked on how brilliant they were, both on and off the pitch. Well done Year 2!
Girls Football Tournament at Cranleigh Prep
On Thursday evening, WSG played in a girls football tournament at Cranleigh Prep School. With tough competition, our B team lost their first couple of matches, before an excellent 3-0 win in their final game. Our A Team dominated the group stage, winning 6-0 and 5-0 to cruise through to the final. Unfortunately, they faced an extremely strong Cranleigh A Team, who were 2-0 winners. We are always so proud of watching our girls compete and this was no different - they showed great determination and all round ability. Well done girls!
Swimming Gala at St Catherine's
On Wednesday, WSG competed against St Catherine's in a swimming gala. We were absolutely delighted to have 50 children from KS2 represent WSG, which is a huge record! Everyone gave their all, swimming beautifully and having great fun in what was a first gala for many. There were some notable performances too, showing that we have some really strong swimmers at the school. Well done to everyone who attended!
