Brilliant results for Cirencester Primary 

 

With year six learning quicksticks (Primary School hockey) over the past six weeks, it was only right to enter a quicksticks tournament at Deer Park School. Having managed to successfully enter four teams, and, with difficulty, choose the right children to play the big day finally arrived. With every player, feeling both excited and full of trepidation we arrived at Deer Park. Wearing our Cirencester Primary kit with shirts tucked in and socks pulled up we were certainly a site to see stepping off the minibuses - very smart indeed!

All four teams (Red, White, Blue and Green) performed brilliantly throughout the tournament competing in both an A League and Development League. Under the watchful eyes of assistant coaches: Mrs Jones, Mrs Smith and Mrs Shadbolt/Laight the teams flourished improving their skills with each match played. To simplify the results our teams plays in 24 matches winning 20 of them, drawing one and losing three! What an afternoon (please look at the table below for more information) of competitive quicksticks. Brilliant.

All four teams have qualified to enter The Cotswold Quicksticks Final at Deer Park School on the 4th February 2019. Extra coaching/training sessions will be beginning after Christmas!

Thank you to everyone that supported the event and, of course, the children for being amazing.

Cross Country Relay at Kingshill School

A massive thank you and well-done goes to ALL the children that entered and ran their hearts out at Kingshill School’s annual Cross Country event on Tuesday 2nd October 2018. Teams of four boys and four girls from years four, five and six each ran approximately 1000m competing against children from eleven other Primary Schools in the local area. It is always a highly competitive race with incredibly strong runners from all the schools. Watching the children finish their legs of the relay, I could see that every single one of them gave one hundred percent effort trying their absolute hardest.

Our results ranged from fourth to ninth place and with twelve schools taking part, this is excellent news. Our year five girls narrowly missed a well-earned bronze medal. Sadly, the team that came third decided to cut a big corner of the course therefore overtaking our final runner - maybe next year!

Finally, thank you again to all the children for running your hardest and fastest.

What a brilliant way to begin another year of competitive sports at Cirencester Primary by taking part in a very enjoyable afternoon of Tag Rugby at Kingshill School. Cirencester Primary entered two very keen year six teams with one team playing in a Confident Pool and the other in a Development Pool. Without much game practise but lots of energy and drive, both teams played skilful and determined Tag Rugby winning six out of their nine games (lost two and drew one!). It was a pleasure to see excellent teamwork with the teams improving with every game they played. We are now hoping there are going to be more matches allowing the children the chance to improve their game play even more.

 

A wonderful afternoon of competitive sport.

School Games Gold Mark Award 2017/18 1

I am delighted to announce that Cirencester Primary has achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2017/18 academic year.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

With a total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

Thank you needs to go to Mrs Jones and every other member of staff involved in helping Cirencester Primary win this award. Finally, I have to say a big thank you to all parents for supporting their children during these events whether it was transportation to events, tears if we lost or just cheering! Thank you so much.
