All year groups have been busy in PE this half term. Year 6 have not only been creating symmetrical gymnastics routines, but have also learnt how to put up and take down the apparatus in a very quick and sensible manner. Year 5 have been working with Coach Charlie learning how to play hockey, as well as creating hip-hop dances. Year 4 have been playing tennis and working hard on their indoor athletics. Year 3 have been working on basic movements such as throwing and catching, running and jumping, along with working with Mrs Hoskins to learn how to be active in our outdoor environment.
Results for Sporting Events will be updated on the website half-termly. We wish all our sports teams every success in the 2019/20 Academic Year.
We are in the Semi-Final! Congratulations to our A team who won their match 4-0. On Wednesday 11th March, Elson Junior School played Gomer Junior School at the Bay House all-weather pitch. We were the first team to score, which meant that Gomer needed to work hard. In the first half, Jack scored our first 2 goals. As a team, we then went on to score 2 further goals, making a hat trick for Jack and 1 for Jamie. All the boys played incredibly well and worked hard to seal the win. Charlie, who played in goal, had an amazing game, saving many of Gomer’s shots. We will now go into the final against Woodcot, the date is yet to be confirmed. Well done Team Elson! Congratulations also go to the B Team who have won their league. Well done boys, we are really proud of you and looking forward to the next season. We are getting the shield engraved and will then present it, with their medals, to the boys.
The football team have begun their training for the upcoming season and have been put into either the A or B Team. All squad members have been working hard and have impressed the coach. A fixtures list for the matches will be sent out as soon as it is completed. Our first match has been confirmed as Elson Junior School vs Grange Junior School and will be a home match for both A and B teams.
