Girls’ Football Tournament

On Tuesday 6th February, 11 girls from year 5 and 6 went to Paddington Rec to compete in the girls’ football tournament. Everyone played superbly (we did not lose a game!). We won 2 games and drew 3, with Sara scoring 2 goals and Jenin 1 goal. Well done to the whole team for a great day out!


Year 5 and 6 Boys’ Football

Yesterday, our Year 5/6 boys’ football team took part in a Westminster-wide competition. Here is a match report by one of the team:

On the 29th of January 2018, some boys from years 5-6 went to a football tournament.

Fist we had a warm up passing the ball to each other and having a run around. The first match was a draw (0-0), the second match was a defeat (1-0), and the third match was another defeat (2-0). Then we were knocked out so we couldn’t go through to the semi-finals.

After  that we went to another pitch to play some friendlies. For our first friendly we versed Saint Vincent’s Primary School, and lost 1-0, but we finally won our last friendly 2-1!                          

Finally we got our stuff and made our way back to school. We enjoyed the day and hope to win better and learn from our mistakes that we made.

Sayers Croft Day 2

The children slept very well and are wide awake and ready for their activities this morning. They will be caving, having a go at a low ropes course, exploring the WW2 trail and finding their way around the woods using compasses. A jam-packed day, full of adventure!

The children also celebrated a special birthday.

Children ran the following distances:

Year 1 and 2: 600m

Year 3 and 4: 1km

Year 5 and 6: 1.6km (1 mile)

A particularly exciting race was the Year 6 girls, which was an extremely tight finish for 3rd place! Congratulations to the top 6 finishers from each year group, who will represent St Mary’s at the inter-school competition at Regent’s Park. Well done to everyone for participating and showing great sportsmanship!

Tag Rugby Competition

Yesterday, pupils from Year 5 and 6 competed in the Westminster Tag Rugby Competition.

Here are their match reports:

On 27th September, children took part in a tag rugby competition. First we changed into our kits and then we made our way to Regents Park where the competition was held. We all had an amazing time, but unfortunately we didn’t score any goals on our first game and managed to make it up by scoring two scores on our second game and we had a draw on our third. The games started after lunch and we had games and drills before lunch. In the drills we played games such as handball and we competed against St Matthew’s. We practised kicking, scoring, defending and attacking. Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the semi-finals but played really well in the matches. We are all very proud of ourselves and can’t wait to do something like this again. Thank you Miss Bell and Miss Ali.

First, we left assembly to get changed into our kit. We made our way to Regents Park shortly after. There were 12 people who came (including me and Sara); when we arrived we were surprised to see many local schools. We started with a warm up which consisted of drills and skills. Luckily, we were the fastest school in the running warm up. We competed against St Matthew’s during the warm-ups. When we got to the real games, it was much more competitive. The first game we played we scored 1-0. The second and third game we drew. Sadly, we didn’t get through to the semi-finals but we scored 5 tries in total. It was amazing and we were so glad we could go. A big thank you to Mr Pendlebury and Miss Bell. Also Miss Ali and the parents that supported us.
