TCS Mini London Mararthon

The Mini London Marathon Event was held over two days:

-Tuesday 16th April on the Sports Pavilion field with the whole school taking part

-Saturday 20th April where 60 children travelled to London to take part

Both days were a great success and proved to be both memorable and enjoyable.

All of the children took part with enthusiasm and were great ambassadors for the school demonstrating our sports values. The children's achievements were recognised during our Celebration Assembly on Friday 19th April.

Thank you to everyone who came to support, it was great to see so many smiling faces and support for the children. This made such a difference.

Thank you to the PTA for spearheading the event, both in school and at the weekend in London, and to our Sports Leaders Mrs Sutton and Mrs Cleeve for their practical help and support with the organisation.

Thank you to all who have contributed to the sponsorship, this will make such a difference to the fundraising for the Big Build Project and the whole school, To date, we've raised more than £10,000 towards the campaign to build a multi-purpose facility at the school, which is absolutely amazing.

 

Year 3 and 4 Cross Country – Gangwarily May 2024

     

Finally, a dry day with some sun to help make a difficult running course a little easier for our Year 3 and 4’s. 450+ children and lots of adult spectators gathered at Gangwarily Recreation Centre to watch or take part in an undulating and long course.

The year 3’s set off first with over 100 boys on the start line, it was tricky to find a stretch of track to run at a good pace without being pushed or jostled. All our boys did really well, getting around safely with smiles on their faces, however a special mention to Toby, who was placed 16th.  The Year 4 girls showed huge determination too, motivating each other along the way. They were pleased to be wearing our new Sporty t-shirts in breathable fabric as it was so hot!

The Year 4 boys were in the last race and were now much more strategic with our positioning on the start line, ensuring the clearest route through the other runners.

Well done to all, as all the boys improved their places from last year, coming in the top 50 runners but a particular mention needs to be made to George (9th) Jake (13th) and Milo (14th) who, with their combined scores, earned bronze medals as the 3rd quickest team.

Year 5 & 6 Rugby Festival - March 2024

 

We had lots of fun and were very successful against other schools at a recent rugby festival at Brockenhurst College. We were lucky to have a dry day with plenty of sunshine. We improved in every match, and became more confident as a team throughout the day.

We won our first three matches which put us into the top tier of the festival.  We worked hard to run supporting lines in attack and to stay connected as a defensive line to make sure we didn’t miss too many tackles.  “It was a lot of fun and the matches were hard as the other teams were also good,” said Samuel.

This is an incredible achievement but most of all the children demonstrated the school’s values of respect and integrity, as they always listened to and respected the student referees and they worked well together as a team. Thanks again for all the parent support on the try line and with transport.

Year 4 Cross Country Event - Feb 2024

  

It was touch and go whether we would take part in this inter school event due to the excessive rain we have had. However, the children were keen and the 1km course was not too muddy!!

With all Year 4 children running together, it was a busy race but Luke and Milo led at the front from the beginning. The girls were spaced out a little further down the field but by the end of a winding track through fields and forests all were still trying their hardest to get a medal and be in the top 3. 

Luke was thrilled to achieve his gold, with Milo narrowly missing out on bronze and in her first running event Rosie was pleased to be the 3rd girl at the finish and claim her medal.

It’s so lovely to see the children supporting each other, giving words of encouragement at the start of the race to combat nerves and of congratulations at the finish. Well done to you all – you were fabulous!

Year 3 & 4 Sportshall Athletics Feb 2024

  

 

 

We had a great experience on Saturday at a very busy Indoor Athletics event held at Testwood School.  The Sportshall was full of both competitors and spectators with at least 400 people watching and cheering. This made for a fabulous atmosphere but also quite intimidating for our young team of Year 3 and 4’s!

This did not put our children off and they were superb in both demonstrating patience waiting for their turn and showing great focus throughout the 4 hours!  Each child took part in a running, jumping and throwing event and then there was the exciting Year sprint relay.

We were well practised and were pleased with our results throughout the event and we placed 13th out of 21 teams. This is a great result and demonstrated the children’s effort from attending my lunchtime club.

Thanks again to all the help and support from parents for being there with snacks and words of encouragement.

Sportshall Athletics Final - Testwood School Feb 2024

   

What a fantastic atmosphere inside the Sportshall on Saturday! With support of parents and children all trying their best, it was a recipe for a great start to the weekend. We are always up against it at this event with some large schools from Southampton each taking 3 teams, but we had fun, showed amazing teamwork and respect to each other to deliver a great result of 8th. We won most of the running events and maybe next year we can put in some extra training sessions to improve our jumping and throwing events so we can improve even further.

Thanks to the children and parents for giving up their Saturday and maintaining such a positive attitude.

Can Do Festival - Ballard School Feb 2024

  

We had a great time trying out different types of Sports such as Boccia, Goalball and New Age Curling. We showed fabulous teamwork as we helped each other through the blindfolded obstacle course and listening hard for the jingle ball to save a goal in Goal ball. Our favourites were the seated Volleyball and the New Age Curling. We had some pretty close fought matches, where the boys challenged the girls in the Boccia. We really improved our technique and aiming skills, but most of all we overcame some initial worries to have a go and had a fun-filled afternoon.

Year 5 & 6 Cross Country - County Qualifiers Feb 2024

    

The conditions of the Cross Country circuit are hard, however they were some of the worst running conditions I have ever seen. The amount of mud, puddles and slippery tree roots made grip and running really difficult. We even saw some children from other schools losing their trainers to the mud and falling on the start line. I was so proud of all of our Ringwood Junior competitors, as they showed huge amounts of talent, resilience and determination to cope with this and the large amount of children running in each race (over 100). The top 4 runners in each Year group made up a team and our Year 5 girls were 6th /20 teams, Year 5 Boys 6th/28 teams, Year 6 girls = 6th/21 teams and Year 6 Boys = 4th/24 teams. It was lovely to hear how we helped each other along the way, some running alongside to encourage those children who had not experienced this course before.

Fabulous news for Bella (5th out of 117), Josh (3rd out of 132) and Leo (6th out of 130) who will now represent the New Forest Team at the Hampshire County Cross Country event later in March in Basingstoke.

Year 5 & 6 Boys Premier League Football Review Jan 2024

On Tuesday 16th January, eight boys from Year 6 participated in the Premier League Primary Stars Football tournament held at the new Ringwood Community Hub 3G pitches. Teams had travelled from across Bournemouth, Poole and Hampshire to be in with a chance of qualifying onto the final stages of the competition which is to be held at a Premier League stadium. The tournament consisted of sixteen teams split into four groups. The boys played four games as part of the initial group stage against Avonwood Primary and Elm Academy. They did extremely well in these games as they only conceded one goal. Credit goes to Joe, Jack and Benj for their strong performances at the back. The team finished top of their group and moved into the semi-finals.

For the semi-final they played St Katherine’s C of E School, who traditionally do very well in sporting competitions, beating them 2-0. The boys were able to show their defensive strength once again as they limited their opponents to only a few shots. Our goalkeeper Bertie was on hand when required providing a safe pair of hands. Following multiple attacks, Charlie was able to break through and score to end the deadlock. Shortly after, he was able to score again to reinforce the dominance of the team. Malakai was key with his creativity and positive, forward-thinking play.

When the final kicked off they continued to play some excellent football. Fred was a constant threat in the early stages and was unlucky with a few shots going close. With only a few minutes left of the final, Benj received the ball and found Charlie in some space who fired a left footed shot into the top corner of the goal. Their celebration was almost as good as the goal! Oscar was then instrumental as he pressed high up the pitch to stop attacks from developing – he worked very hard! Bertie saved a few long-distance shots near the end as the boys were able to calmly see out the remaining moments of the match. They have qualified for the national finals representing Bournemouth Football Club. Huge congratulations to the team for displaying excellent sportsmanship, teamwork and footballing ability.

Year 5 & 6 Girls Premier Football Jan 2024

On Tuesday 9th January, eight girls from Year 5 & 6 braved the freezing temperatures to participate in the Premier League Primary Stars Football tournament held at the new Ringwood Community Hub 3G pitches. Teams had travelled from across Bournemouth, Poole and Hampshire to be in with a chance of moving onto the final stages being held at The County Ground stadium, home to Nottingham Forest FC.

The girls played four games as a part of the initial group stage against Pokesdown Primary School and St Joseph’s Primary School.   Our first game allowed for fantastic team work from all players which enabled Grace, Holly and Charlotte to make a run towards the goal with Holly scoring our first goal of the day and helping us to our first win!

During our next game against St Joseph’s, the girls dominated play with Millie defending well and passing to Grace who scored with a powerful shot in the top corner. After another strong attack from the girls, Charlotte scored a fantastic cross from well outside the box to secure a 2-0 win.  We then played both teams again as a part of this group, winning 1-0 in both and moving onto the semi-finals!

Our draw in the semi-finals saw us face Baden-Powell and St Peters Junior School who proved to be an incredibly strong team. Grace made several fantastic saves, but even our best play was not enough to stop a 2-0 defeat to the team that went on to win the competition.   A great afternoon of high-level skill and fantastic teamwork and spirit, well done RJS Lions!
