11th March 2020

Well done to our Year 6 football team on their sporting
behaviour at Wednesday’s District ‘A’ Football Tournament. The team improved across the afternoon and placed 10th of the schools involved. Next week sees our Year 5’s play in the B team equivalent and we are looking forward to it. Thank you to Mr Wilson, Mr Markham and Mrs Davidson for assisting me on the afternoon and for providing our children with this opportunity.

3rd March 2020

Congratulations to our Year 3 and 4 and Year 5 and 6 Indoor Athletics Teams, who competed at Wodson Park on Tuesday in the A10 District Sports event. The teams were excellent and the relay baton changes and board turns were well practised and sharp throughout. There were some amazing performances across the day. Particular highlights included Tino ‘The Tunnel Torpedo’ ensuring the boys won the over and under relay, Ethan and Rudy and Evie and Isabel both winning their 6 lap paarlauf by a country mile and Zara, Isabel, Penny and Isabella winning their over and under relay. Of the eleven Year 3 and 4 schools competing across the morning, the girls placed a close 4th and the boys took home some silverware finishing 2nd. Of the twelve schools contesting the Year 5 and 6 afternoon equivalent, the girls placed 6th and the boys 4th. It was a privilege to be able to see the children represent our school and support them across the day. Well done to all involved.

Congratulations to Erin, Lola and Zara on representing our school at the South East England Gymnastics Tumbling Competition. It is fantastic that our school is represented at this level. Thirty schools competed and amazingly Erin won her class out of the other 29 gymnasts in her category and will represent our school at the National Gymnastics Tumbling competition later this year. We will let you know how she gets on. Well done to you all!

29th January 2020

Well done to our amazing Year 5 and 6 swimming team who came second overall out of the 10 competing Primary Schools in this year’s District Swimming Gala.  Mrs Brislin and Mrs Roberts reported that the overall team spirit, encouragement and effort the team put in during the afternoon was excellent. Eleven of the team made finals with exceptional performances from Evie, Mya and Elliot, seeing them become individual District Champions through winning their finals. Thank you also to Mrs Anderson who helped on the afternoon.

28th January 2020

It has been a sporty week, with our Year 1 and 2 Multi-Skills Sports Team, enjoying the Fun Festival on Tuesday and representing the school exactly as we would wish. Teamwork, positivity and encouragement were all in evidence throughout the afternoon and our children had great fun. Well done to all involved and thank you to Miss Sibthorpe and Mrs Pedlar for supporting the team at the event.

Well done to all our ‘dashers’ from EY1 through to Year 6.

15th November 2019

The District Football and Netball Tournaments also took place on Wednesday and all gave good accounts of themselves. The footballers improved on last week’s results and advanced to the final, narrowly missing out 1-0 as runners up. With 14 teams competing, this is an excellent achievement. Our netballers also played extremely well and finished in third place. Thank you once more to Mr Wilson, Mr Markham, Mrs Brislin and Mrs Roberts for supporting our teams across the afternoon. Well done to all who represented the school on the day.

8th November 2019

Our Year 5 and 6 netballers were amazing at Tuesday’s A10 District Netball Tournament and the A team won the overall tournament with some great shooting and play throughout. Our B team also gave a good account of themselves, winning 2, drawing 0 and losing 4 games. The footballers found the competition tough, though played with great-spirit and showed real sportsmanship after each and every game. Their play improved across the afternoon and the A team lost 3, drew 2 and won their final game, whilst our B team won 1, drew 1 and lost 4. The new kit looked great with Aashi proving to be a ‘Mini Messi’ at number 10! We wish to thank The Brogan Group and Mrs Kenny for contacting them to provide this. The players were very excited and approve of the kit design (phew!) Very well done to all netballers and footballers who represented the school and thank you to Mrs Brislin, Mrs Pedlar and Mr Wilson for providing our children with this opportunity. Thank you also to all parents who transported our players on the day. Next Wednesday we have the Hoddesdon and Broxbourne Tournament and we will report how we fare.

4th October 2019

Our Year 5 and 6 girls showed great spirit this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday representing their houses in Girls’ football. We are not quite sure what happened to Red House with only 2 players! We need to look at how the teams were distributed, although 20 girls took part each day and had a great time. Well done to all involved.

27th September 2019

The Year 3 and 4 Inter-House Boys’ Football Tournament was well attended and the quality of play on show bodes well for the future. Well done to all players who represented their houses. With three points for a win, two for a draw and one for playing, the final scores were: Red Squirrels 4, Yellow Foxes 6, Blue Badgers 7 and Green Hedgehogs 8. It was excellent to see so many out and involved – well done Broxbourne Primary and congratulations to Green Hedgehogs. Next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday it is the Year 5 and 6 Girls’ Tournament. Boots and shin pads are essential and weather permitting, we look forward to another active and enjoyable week.

20th September 2019

Well done to our Year 3 and 4 girls who played inter house football this week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Numbers grew and by Thursday, we were up to 14 and awarded House Points based upon participation. Scores were: Red 1, Yellow 4, Blue 4 and Green 5. All had fun and well done on representing your houses. Next week sees the Year 3 and 4 boys football on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday lunchtimes. Boots, shin pads and kit are needed each day.

 

The children at Broxbourne CE Primary School were asked why they like PE. Here’s what they said…

MULTI SKILLS FESTIVAL

What an amazing afternoon of sport and activities for 24 pupils from across KS2 ranging from year 3 up to year 6. We had an A B and C team and all teams participated in activities such as curling, hand ball (blind folded) and orienteering. I was extremely proud of how you all conducted and challenged yourselves. I would like to say particular well done to Ben, Poppy and Moyin for being such fantastic team leaders and role models for the younger children.

21st June 2019 CRICKET TOURNAMENT

We took two cricket teams to the cricket tournament this year because our new cricket club has proved to be a very popular after school club. This club was introduced based on pupil voice at the end of last year. Thank you to Mr Wilson and Mr Markham for running this club for our children. Both teams performed brilliantly and with great team spirit. Our B Team improved as the tournament progressed and managed to win 2 of their 4 games. Our A Team managed to win the whole tournament and will go on to represent our area at the Summer School Games Finals on 05/07/19.

5th July 2019 KWIK CRICKET – SUMMER SCHOOL

GAMES FINALS!

Our cricket team represented our area (A10 ACTIVE) at the county finals. The whole team performed with passion and they progressed all the way through to the final. The final was extremely close and it was a draw at the end of the match (246 both teams taking 4 wickets each). It therefore went to a very tense bowl-off and Fleetwood won after all 8 players on both teams had bowled. We came a well-deserved second place and Mr Miller was very proud of the team.

GIRLS FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

We took two teams to the girl’s football tournament this year and it is brilliant that more girls are choosing to engage in this sport at our school. Our A team were extremely unlucky not to make it through to the semi-finals. They only lost one game all afternoon! The B team showed great perseverance and managed to win their last game. All of the girls demonstrated great sportspersonship throughout the competition.
