Boys Year 6 Football – Brockenhurst College
Just before the end of term, Mr Dunningham accompanied our Year 6 boys to football competition at Brockenhurst College.
All the boys were challenged by the skills element and held their own in the match play, gaining in confidence and team play as the event progressed. The team worked very hard to gain an understanding of how they wanted to play in both tactics and positioning. They showed excellent resilience in their matches, particularly when earning a hard-fought draw in the first round.
Winning some matches with some skilful play and excellent attacking was a great way to end the day. You can always tell a good match by the state of the boys’ knees and they were very muddy!
Thank you to all the parents for your support to enable the boys to participate, it is much appreciated.
Year 3 and 4 Cross Country Team and Individual event - Gangwarily
What an exciting day we had running around a very muddy 1km course. This was the first experience some of our Year 3 and 4 children had to participate in any sporting event with other schools and to represent Ringwood Junior School and they did themselves and the school proud!
The course was challenging, long and slippery with 100 competitors in each race but they all finished with a smile, a muddy face and having had fun. Some of the children were even lucky enough to receive medals!
Both girls’ teams were fabulous showing great teamwork and determination to help each other along the tricky course. The fastest 3 Year 3 boys were able to claim the silver medal with outstanding results for George (4th) this time just missing out on an individual medal! and Milo (7th). The Year 4 boys continued fantastic results for us with Josh achieving an individual bronze medal and helping the fastest 3 to a team bronze too!
We can't wait for the next Year 3/4 Cross Country relay event at the end of May!
Year 6 Hockey - Brockenhurst
On a freezing day, our intrepid hockey players participated in a non-stop tournament against some very well-practised and confident teams from other schools in the area. For some of the team members, this was their first experience at a New Forest Schools Sports competition. Any nerves were well hidden as both teams tackled each match with confidence and the desire to win.
After the group stage, we settled into our stride and started to score and defend better, always demonstrating respect for each other and the other teams. In between matches, it was fantastic to see both teams taking responsibility for their own skill and match play development, with only a few tips from me.
I would like to thank all the dedicated parents, who cheered from the side lines. This helped our teams to come 3rd in the second division and to win in the fourth division. We were all thrilled to be able to walk away heads held high with some gold medal and no major injuries!
