Latest Sports Reports



Tuesday 26th February 2019


The School Games U11 basketball playoffs proved tough. Despite playing really well as a team, we were unsuccessful in securing a place in county finals.  Dexter scored baskets in both games, but despite Grace's best attempts the ball refused to drop through the basket!  


Everyone displayed great teamwork and sportsmanship and were a credit to the school.







Tuesday 12th February 2019


We took 6 boys and 6 girls to the tournament – the girls played first and the boys second – playing seven minutes one way.


Our first game was against Copdock. The girls started by passing the ball a lot during this game, but scored 2 baskets, however Copdock scored their third basket on the hooter! The boys then went on to score 3 baskets and not concede any.


Our second game was against Bentley. The girls looked much more confident and were dribbling as well as passing in this game. They scored 5 baskets and conceded 2. The boys also scored 5 baskets, but conceded only 1.Our third game was against Ranelagh. The girls dominated in their half and scored 6 baskets, conceding 1. The boys finished as a draw, with 1 basket each.


Our last game was against Springfield. Once again the girls were dominant and scored 7 baskets to their 1. The boys’ game was very tight, however we won with just the one basket.


Our top scorer was Grace with an impressive 14 baskets!  Other baskets were scored by Oscar, Dexter, Poppy, Mia and Daniel. However, without the rest of the team, they would not have had these opportunities. We showed great team spirit defending and attacking as a team. Freya won the fair play award. 


The end result was Claydon won gold and will return for the play offs to determine which team goes through to the county final! 


All the children displayed great teamwork, attitude and sportsmanship.  Well done everyone – you were amazing. 


Thank you to the parents for transporting and supporting the team!

U9 Girls 4v4 Football Festival

Thursday 18th October 2018


Six girls attended the festival at Ipswich Town Football Club run by SSE Wildcats girls’ football who brought along their mascot.  This was their first experience of playing football and it was very relaxed with no goal keepers, small pugg goals and the girls, with support from the teachers, officiating the games.  Bailey won the fair play award.  They all had lots of playing time and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.




 Year 5/6 Boys

School Games Boys Football Tournament
Wednesday 3rd October 2018

We took 7 boys from years 5/6 to the tournament at Whitton Sports Centre.  We lost our first game, but learnt from our mistakes and drew the second game.  We went on to win our third game, lose the fourth and drew the final game.  The boys worked as team, producing some good football.




 Year 5/6 Girls


 School Games - U11 Girls Football  

Thursday 11th October 2018


Nine girls attended the tournament at Whitton Sports Centre, Ipswich.  All the girls were really looking forward to the day, although a little nervous.  All the girls played well, but Ruby was exceptional in goal, making several great saves throughout the afternoon.  We lost one game 3.0 when we lost our positions for a short time, but after that re-organised ourselves and displayed improved play.  During the afternoon we were able to establish the girls’ strengths to move us forward and some skills to work on at training.  Kyla won the fair play award.





School Games U11 Girls Futsal Tournament

Thursday 31st January 2019


We took 6 players to the tournament and participated in 3 games – playing ten minutes one way.  The format was 5v5 with a goalkeeper.


Our first game was against Whitton and it was a very even match, with both teams attacking and defending well.  The only goal came three minutes before the end when we all pushed forward to attack allowing a Whitton player to drop behind our defence line and with a good forward pass she received the ball to take on Ruby and score.

Our second game was against East Bergholt and we looked so much more confident.  Their goalkeeper was quick off her line, to prevent Mia’s shot.  This was followed by another shot from Mia which just went wide.  East Bergholt retaliated by hitting the side netting and seeing another shot go wide.  The game finished goal less.


Our last game was against Ipswich High.  We saw a great save from Ruby in the sixth minute and Maia then counter attacked, but just lost control of the ball on her last touch.  Ipswich High scored from a wide shot, catching us off guard.  Maia then attacked with a one on one with the keeper, but the keeper managed to block the shot.  We lost our confidence a little, which allowed them to score again just before the final whistle.

We showed great team spirit and learnt a lot with Shannon and Laura defending well throughout and Freya, Mia and Maia providing a strong midfield.  Mia and Freya were also praised by Suffolk FA for their strong tackles.


Maia won the fair play award. All the children displayed great teamwork, attitude and sportsmanship. 


Well done everyone and thank you to the parents for transporting and supporting the team!




School Games U9 Mixed Futsal Festival

Thursday 17th January 2019


We took 5 players to the festival and participated in 5 games – playing ten minutes one way.


Our first 3 games were one after another, but we rose to the challenge.

The first game was against Hadleigh and we started strongly with a display of competent footwork from Bobby resulting in a goal.  This was closely followed by a second goal from Bobby after an accurate kick on from Harrison.  Francesca hit the post shortly afterwards with Harrison shooting just wide.  Despite some excellent defending from Bobby and Liam they pulled a goal back in the eighth minute.  However, we kept our composure with Liam scoring a long range shot in the ninth minute quickly followed by a goal from Francesca.


The second game was against Stratford St Mary and once again we started brightly with Liam scoring from a corner in the second minute.  Harrison scored our second as it ricocheted in off the inside of the post, quickly followed by an excellent chip - one minute later he completed his hat trick! Connor saw two shots go wide as well as one off the post, with Liam also hitting the post.  Stratford pulled a goal back in the eighth minute, but this was quickly cancelled out by a goal from Liam, following on from some strong defending.


The third game was against Whitton.  Harrison opened the scoring when his kick on was deflected back to him providing an opportunity for him to shoot.  Whitton quickly cancelled this out.  Harrision then hit the side netting before once again taking a kick on which was deflected into the goal.  Once again Whitton cancelled this out as we saw Connor’s shot go wide and Harrison hit the post.  We took the lead once again with a goal from Connor, only to see Whitton strike the ball just as the whistle went, but the goal was allowed to stand.


The fourth game was against Causton and keeping our form we opened the scoring with Connor counterattacking after a strong few minutes defending.  Bobby went on to score from an excellent cross in from Connor.  Bobby saw his header rise just over the crossbar and Causton hit back with their first goal.  Liam went on to score our third, but once again Causton hit back.  Liam defended well and Bobby made a good block.  Francesca saw her shot go just wide before Bobby scored our fourth.  Causton went on to score a third, but we managed to hold on for the win.


Our last game was against Halifax, which proved very exciting.  Harrison opened the scoring only to see Halifax equalise.  Bobby scored our second, but Halifax hit back immediately again.  Harrison scored our third with a great strike, but again Halifax equalised.  Francesca made a great block and Connor was defending well, in an end to end game. Francesca won the fair play award.


All the children displayed great teamwork, attitude and sportsmanship.  Well done everyone and thank you to the parents for transporting and supporting the team!

Tag Rugby

School Games U11 Tag Rugby Festival 

Tuesday 6th November 2018


Last week 10 children from years 5 and 6 attended the School Games U11 Tag Rugby Festival at St Joseph’s College, Ipswich.

The opening 2 games ended in defeat, however they stuck together as a team and managed to learn from their mistakes and go on to win 3 games (along with 1 more defeat) .


Mrs Kitchen felt that is was one of our best performances at a festival in terms of teamwork, and was a pleasure to watch. The rugby coach who was overseeing the event told the children their second try was the best he had seen that afternoon.


All the children were a credit to the school, in terms of sportsmanship and practising together between matches.


Dexter won the School Games fair play award.
