Inter-School competitions

Tri Golf Festival

8 children from swallowtails class went  to Broughton on Wednesday afternoon to take part in a tri golf festival. This is a festival that gives children the opportunity to 'have a go' at some golf in a friendly scenario.

There were 6 activities set up around the school playground and field run by some young leaders from Broughton school and scored by the Sports Leaders from Test Valley. The children had a go on the driving range first where they enjoyed hitting the ball as hard as they could down the field! They also got to practise their aiming and putting, where Freddie got a superb hole in one!

Freddie, Oscar, Daniel, Joseph, Iris, Imogen, Ellie and Alice all really enjoyed the event and represented the school perfectly. Good job golfers!

Area Athletics

 

16 children represented Lockerley Primary School this morning at the area athletics from Years 3 - 6. It was a full on morning with track and field events including, 300m race, vortex throw, standing long jump and speed bounce. All of the children competed well, showing several strengths early on. Overall we came first. This adds a fifth trophy and more gold medals to our other sporting successes this year. An absolutely amazing achievement. Thank you to all of the parents that came along to support us and transported children there. It is safe to say I have a sore throat from all of the cheering. Check out our photographs below. 

Rounders Tournament

It was a beautiful afternoon on Wednesday when 11 of Lockerley's finest athletes travelled to Test Valley for the rounders tournament. Being off for the first match gave us the chance to suss out the opposition and talk tactics before our first match against Wallop.

Fielding first helped the children settle into the game before taking on the role of batting and knocking a few balls long distance to help score our first full rounder. Winning the first match gave the team a confidence boost and enabled them to take on the next 5 matches in a row with vigour and enthusiasm.

There was some superb bowling from Hugh throughout the competition; not to mention some excellent team fielding on second base from Josh, Aston, Aaron, Toby and Morgan stopping every team from scoring a half round when they could. The backing up that they had been practising in PE was well utilised by Henry, Ben S and Ben T to stump people out and stop rounders.

As well as lots of full rounders being scored from big hits Primrose and Lily hit some great shots and got to second base in order to secure those all important half rounders.

So, 6 matches in a row.......6 wins!

Another victory for Team Lockerley. Well done team, a superb effort all round and some really outstanding teamwork was on show for all to see.

Football Tournament

 

Yesterday our football team took part in the area football tournament at Wallop Primary School. The team won 5 out of the 6 games with no goals conceded. The children showed incredible commitment, enthusiasm and teamwork and fully deserved to bring the trophy back to Lockerley! Thank you to all the parents who helped with transport and stayed to support the children! Thank you also to Mr Cooke for coaching the children and practising with them at lunchtimes. A huge well done from Mr Dodson to Aaron, Aston, Henry, Ben S, Ben T, Toby, Hugh and George.

Netball Tournament

Well done to all the children who took part in the netball event on Wednesday this week. They performed brilliantly as a team, winning four consecutive matches and losing just one. Lockerley v Wallop – 4-1 (Toby and Primrose with 2 points each)

Lockerley v Wherwell – 2-0 (Maddie with both points)

Lockerley v West Tytherley – 5-0 (Sophie with 2 and Aston with 3)

Lockerley v Broughton – 5-3 (Primrose with 2 and Aaron with 3).

Broughton beat us 14-1 a month ago. Revenge is indeed a dish best served cold.

Lockerley v Stockbridge 0-1 (our only defeat)

Thank you to the parents who came along to cheer the children on and I loved being there to see the children raise the trophy at the end. Thank you to Mrs Priest, Miss Banks and some other bloke for preparing the children so well.

Basketball Competition

A team of 6 basketball superstars went to Test Valley after school yesterday to compete in the annual inter-school competition. Fresh from their skills coaching just before half term Toby, Maddie, Aaron, Aston, Ellie and Alexis were hungry for victory.

The team started well with a win over Wallop and with another win in our next match the team started to think they could be in with a chance. After a short break they had 4 back to back matches. They showed some very impressive stealing and dribbling and worked really well as a team to back each other up to get the ball to a shooting position. There was some phenomenal shooting with a point for every time they hit the backboard and many 3 pointers were scored where the ball hit the backboard and went in.

As we eagerly awaited the final scores the team were praised for their all around skills and for scoring an average of over 20 points per match. I think it's safe to say it was a landslide victory for Team Lockerley with a very well deserved trophy and medals all round.

This afternoon, children from Emperors went to the 'Dare to Believe' Festival at Testwood Secondary School in Totton. The purpose of the event was to introduce children to sports that they may not have come across before or played. The majority of the activities were sports played in the Paralympics. The children even got to meet a real life Paralympian, Kate Grey, who was a swimmer. Check out the photographs below of our fun afternoon. 

Indoor Athletics

An amazing effort by the eight children that attended the Indoor Athletics competition at Test Valley school today. They took part in many events including javelin, triple jump and running events. Overall we came in 4th place with some very strong performances. Check out our photographs below. Thank you to all of the parents that helped us transport children too. 

Inter-school Cross Country 4th October 2017

19 children from years 3-6 travelled to Test Valley School on a sunny, if not slightly chilly, Wednesday afternoon. After the children had warmed up with the Sport Leaders the event started with Oscar running in the Year 3 fun run. He ran a very relaxed race smiling his way around the course.

Next followed the competition events with girls and boys from Years 4-6 taking part in consecutive events. Grace, along with Lucy and Flora racing for the year 4s, were the first to compete and did a sterling job. Freddie won Gold for the year 4 boys with George and Sebastien running solid races. We continued on the winning streak with Maddie striding out at the front and bringing in another Gold medal. Then Aaron and Henry ran another Gold, Silver duo exactly as they had done at this event last year! 

I was so impressed with the attitude of all of the children that took part in the event. They all ran their hearts out, supported each other and smiled, most of the way round! It was superb to take some new competitors to this event and, for some children, give them the opportunity to represent the school at their first sporting event. You should all be very proud of your achievements for Lockerley Sports Team - well done everyone.
