Boys Indoor Futsal Competition

Friday, 8 November 2019

Our boys did themselves proud in a tough competition between 10 teams. Futsal is essentially indoor 5-a-side football but with a heavier ball and square shaped goals. In our group we had to play 4 games, with the top two progressing into the semi-finals. Our objective was simply to do our best and enjoy it but we actually adapted to the game very quickly and scored plenty of goals. We won 3 and lost 1 to finish second in our group and qualify for the semi-finals, which was a great achievement.

We started the semi-final really well but just couldn’t score, then conceded a break-away goal which seemed to knock our confidence. We kept battling but unfortunately went out and ended up 4th overall. This was still really good, although the boys were disappointed not to win a medal. Well done to everyone though for some great football. Player of the tournament was Mati, who was fantastic, scoring 9 goals!

Winning House Cinema Visit

Friday, 8 November 2019

As a reward for being our leading House for the first half term, the children in St Paul’s from classes 5 and 6 were taken to Quinton to watch Spiderman as a reward for their efforts. They all had a great time and their behaviour was exemplary. The other classes will have their cinema trip soon. Well done to everyone who came along.

MENCAP Assembly

Tuesday, 5 November 2019

The children enjoyed learning about the charity and listening to the support they provide. We discussed the importance of treating everyone equally and how to make people with learning difficulties feel included.

Wasps Rugby Visit

Saturday, 2 November 2019

On the same day England played in the World Cup Final, we brought a group of children over to the Ricoh for the first time this season to watch Wasps v Bath in the Premiership. The game was a slow burner in the first half but Wasps got the first try right on half time and the second half was highly entertaining. The lead changed hands several times before Wasps pulled away towards the end scoring two further tries in a 30-22 win. The children were exceptionally behaved and had fun exploring the ground and meeting a couple of the players afterwards for photos and autographs. Thanks to all the adults who joined us too.
