Key Stage 2 children from Clapham & Patching showed great effort and determination as they endeavoured to cover as much distance as possible for their Great Cluster Run on a horrible wet day. wet day. 30 runners took part covering a distance of 11.43 kilometres (the same as almost four times up and down the Long Furlong Road by the school, the distance to Shoreham or past Ashington!) It was a great effort. Well done all the runners!
St. John the Baptist completed their Great Cluster Run before half term. It was a great effort from all involved, with 126 children taking part and covering a distance of 41 kilometres (nearly as far as Portsmouth, Guildford or Eastbourne!)
East Preston Juniors put up a fine performance when they represented the cluster in the SGO Area Quad Kids Final at Angmering on Tuesday. They won through to the final having been victorious in our locality event earlier in the term. The team needed 4 boys and 4 girls to compete in a range of running, throwing, jumping and relay events, in which they scored points for the team according to the quality of their performance.
Competing against all the other Worthing area champions was always going to be a tall order, but the athletes didn't let their school or the cluster down, coming in a commendable third place.
Of particular note was that Jonanda was the top performing girl athlete from all the schools entered, showing some remarkable performances in the vortex throw, standing long jump. Her long distance run showed terrific grit, whilst her sprinting was just awesome. Well for collecting the Athlete of the Games medal.
Thanks you to Mr. Jenner for his organisation of the event and well done to the team and Jonanda.
8 teams of New Age Kurlers from East Preston Infants, Georgian Gardens, St. John the Baptist and St. Wilfrid's took part in our Key stage 1 new Age Kurling festival on Monday evening. As usual the players were all very competitive but participate in really good sportsman-like fashion, taking turns correctly and congratulating opponents when it was deserved. Some of the games were very close indeed as the players attempted to land as many of their stones onto the target as possible. Tactics soon came into play as some players went for placement whilst others sought to hit their opponents away from the target.
The players had a good evening and it was lovely to see so many taking part.
The joint winners were East Preston Infants and Georgian Gardens Pink in what proved to be a very close competition.
There was a lovely KS1 multi-skills event on Wednesday evening, when 5 teams came to participate in different games, challenging their accuracy, coordination, speed, agilty and teamwork skills. The teams partciapted in the "Electric fence challenge", bat and ball balance, netball shooting, boccia target rolling and the "Big Ball Slalom".
All of the teams showed excellent teamwork skills, helping their members to improve and encouraging each other throughout. They did an excellent job in counting scores and recording them with the supporting staff.
The teams were a real credit to their schools.
The final points totals were as folows:
St. John's Raspberries - 179
St. John's Super Winners - 165
St. John's Strawberries - 149
Georgian Gardens Raptors n- 137
St. John's Sheep - 107
195 children from Ferring Primary School took part in their leg of the Angmering Great Cluster Run and achieved an amzing 38.96 kilometres in their alloted time. This would equal running past Hindhead in Surrey where the year 6's recently went on their outdoor activity residential week! It would also take them to Havant in Hampshire to the west and into Seaford in East Sussex to the east. The children worked tirelessly as they completed shuttle runs on what proved to be a lovely sunny afternoon.
The Great Cluster Run allows all children in the school the opportunity to score points for their school, year group, house and class teams which then get entered alongside those of the other locality schools. Being the first school to take part, Ferring will have to wait for the final results, but it was a great effort.
The house champions for each year were as follows:
Year 1: Blue
Year 2: Yellow
Year 4: Blue
Year 5: Red
Year 6: Green
Overall House Champions were Blue House running 10.02 Km
There was fantastic evening of New Age Kurling in the Angmering Sports Hall on Monday evening as Key Stage 2 players came to pit their wits against opposing schools. Many of our schools now run NAK extra-curricular clubs, and so it was great to see the players get the chance to represent their schools and show their skills.
Teamwork was very much the order of the day, as the players all shared tactical ideas on how they could outwit their opponents. Changes of angle, creating approach angles and spectacular hits (bumping opponent’s stones away with your shot to stop them scoring) were all evident and tactics that were employed.
The teams were very sporting, whilst maintaining the competitive edge, in all of their four games. As well as trying to win as many points as possible, they also made a team decision concerning the most valuable player (for sportsmanlike, skilled performance or teamwork reasons) from the other teams. These players receive as special “MVP” certificate.
In the end, the competition was tight but it was Georgian Gardens “Blacks" who came first with an amazing 110 points.
The full results can be seen below.
Congratulations to all the players and many thanks to the staff and parents who sorted the event.
1st: Georgian Gardens "Blacks 110 points (MVP: Devon)
2nd: East Preston the Baptist 88 points (MVP: Taylor)
3rd: St. Margarert's 78 points (MVP: Samuel)
4th: Georgian Gardens "Reds" 54 points (MVP: Thomas)
5th: East Preston Juniors 53 Points (MVP: Connor & George)
6th: St. John the Baptist 50 points (MVP: Lucy)
Having managed to escape the horrendous rainstorms that occurred earlier in the day, five teams of athletes came to take part in the first evet of the summer ter. The track had dried sufficiently, thanks to the stiff breeze, in order that the 600 metre run, standing long jump, 75 metre, sprints, vortex throw and team relays could all take place and the athletes could produce some amazingly good perfomances.
Quadkids involves 4 boys and 4 girls participating in all the events and trying to win as many points as possible for their teams. The points are not awarded according to finishing positions, but instead the athletes are rewarded according to the standard of performance they achieve. Therefore the faster they run, the ore points they gain.
There were however, some very comeptitive heats. The effort and determination of the atghletes were there for all to see as they took part in the different events, which were ably led by an excellent team of Angmering Sports Leaders.
The results were all calculated in order that the best performers from each school could be seen, as well as it being possible to work out who were the top performers in each team.
In the end it was east prest Juniors, which consequently included the best boy performer (Oliver) and girl performer (Jonanda), who were the overall winners and who get the trophy until next time.
The results are published below.
Manty thanks to Mr. Jenner from Angmering for his support with this event.
1st- East Preston Juniors - 1,416
2nd - Georgian Gardens - 1,278
3rd - St. Margaret's - 1,046
4th - Ferring - 1,118
5th - St. John the Baptist - 1,109
On a lovely sunny spring evening, five netball teams arrived and produced some excellent play as they battled for the Locality Netball Tournament Trophy. Support by a large group of excellent Angmering School Sports Leaders, who officiated magnificently, the players soon set about the task of trying to defeat their local rivals. Games were very competitive with some amazing play from all sides. The umpires had the tough decisions to make regarding the tournament's top players (Rhianna from St. John the Baptist & Bethany from East Preston), players who produced the "Magic Moments" of the tournament (Denis from St. Margaret's for his energetic interceptions and Emily from St. Wilfrid's for her incredible long range goal) and also the player who was the biggest inspiration to her team (Lily from St. Margaret's , who continually encouraged and never gave up).
It was a reaaly good event and it is a pleasure to see so many good players working so hard for their school teams.
IN the end East Preston proved just too strong for the other teams, as they managed to go unbeaten throughout and therefore lifted the team trophy.
