With one team playing in The Yokohama Cup and the other playing in The Tokyo Cup, both teams started the festival cautiously but soon found their feet. Red and White teams played an equal number of girls and boys in their matches and excelled with their teamwork from start to finish improving with every single game. It was a pleasure to watch their sportsmanship, respect, enjoyment and discipline grow as the morning progressed.

 

Thank you to every single child that took part.

Congratulations to both Cirencester Primary’s girls football teams that played in Kingshill School’s Girls Football Tournament on Tuesday 22nd October 2019.

 

With little match practise, both teams played with total self-belief, skill and masses of determination. Despite playing without any substitutes, Cirencester red team ended up winning the entire tournament earning themselves well-deserved gold medals. They played brilliantly against strong competition, displaying great talent and never once giving up. Fantastic! Mention must also go to the white team who also played without any substitutes, came third in their pool and fifth overall. A brilliant result considering the strong competition the other schools provided.

 

This is the third consecutive year Cirencester Primary has won gold medals at this event and will be making their way to the next round in December. Finally, respect and thanks has to go to all the girls (and captains!) for being so organised, managing their teams independently and doing so well!

 

Thank you.

What an outstanding result for Cirencester Primary and well done to all the year 4 children that tried their hardest at the recent Sportshall Athletics event at Kingshill School. Having won this event for the last two years, Cirencester Primary were certainly looking for another good result and they got it!. With Ann Edwards, Watermoor and Ashton Keynes competing as well, everyone knew the competition would be tough. Starting off strongly, both teams performed brilliantly with good finishes in their track events and just kept on going.

 

All thirty-five children had a thoroughly enjoyable time running, jumping and throwing as best they could. Thank you to all the parents that came along to support this extremely exciting and loud event!

Cirencester Primary Small Schools and Development Football Tournament 1 Cirencester White Team

Owing to unusual weather on Thursday 14th November, Cirencester Primary held their Small Schools and Development Football Tournament at the Cirencester Arena on 21st November. Much warmer and dry!

Thank you goes to all eight year 6 children that took part and played every match with excellent sportsmanship, fair play and self-belief. Playing on AstroTurf, having massive goals and allowed to bounce the ball off the walls all made for a different but enjoyable type of game.

It was a great afternoon of football skills with teamwork improving during every new game. Thank you to all the children that participated and represented Cirencester Primary with their excellent school values.

Cirencester Primary arrived at Kingshill School feeling a little nervous but very excited at the prospect of taking part in the annual Sports Hall Athletics event open to years 5 and 6. With Cirencester Primary having won this event in 2017 and 2018, expectations were high and another win was in the forefront of everyone’s mind!

 

Thirty-six children participated with nine boys and nine girls in each team and what an afternoon it turned out to be! Incredibly loud and passionate with loads of determination and self-belief. Every single individual tried their absolute hardest from the first race to the last and the results say it all.  An outstanding result!

Well done to our amazing year 6 football team who came a very respectable third place in the Annual Cirencester Primary Football Tournament on Thursday 28th November.

With unexpected snow postponing the original tournament at Cirencester Primary School, a new venue and date was organised at Cirencester Arena where seven local schools participated.

Competition throughout the afternoon was tough and right from the outset Cirencester Reds knew it was going to be a hard fought afternoon of football. Displaying lots of self-belief, they drew with Powells Yellows in their first match and went on to win three games, draw two and only lose to Stratton Primary. A brilliant achievement considering the high level of football throughout the afternoon.

Thank you to the team for their excellent behaviour, teamwork, determination and passion during the afternoon.

Let's bring the trophy back to CPS in 2020!

Gloucestershire Schools Football Association Finals

Gloucestershire Schools Football Association Finals 1 County finalists - an amazing achievement

Girls County Football Finals - Gloucester

On the 5th December 2019, Mr Archer, with the help of Mrs Jones and Mrs Owen, took eight girls (year five and six) up to Gloucester to compete in the Gloucestershire Schools Football Association County Finals. This is a big achievement as Cirencester Primary were representing the Cotswolds in this tournament.

 

All the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves especially when we scored goals. Despite the fact it was cold and wet, it was a very enjoyable afternoon of football. Our captain (Evie) and vice-captain (Charlotte) did an amazing job leading us throughout the tournament. Our goalie, Freya, did an incredible job at saving goals and Emma stepped in when Freya saved a goal with her face and injured herself! Charlotte did many amazing tackles and even, on one occasion, fell into the splits! Thankfully, Olina managed to receive the ball and dribble it away.

 

Our team was amazing and we felt very proud about our achievements.

 

Match report written by: Olina, Freya and Emma.

 

Thank you for the match report girls.  I would like to add a massive congratulations to all the girls for their outstanding achievement at reaching this level of football. Gloucestershire County Finals! Everyone displayed such determination during what turned out to be strong opposition and a very cold windy evening.

 

Determination and self-belief is core to Cirencester Primary and it was a pleasure to support the team from start to finish. Thank you.
