Sports Updates 2017-18
TAG RUGBY JANUARY 2018
These games were non-competitive to allow children to participate not just against each other but also against other schools. St. Luke’s came out on top, winning the majority of the games. Mr Browne, Miss Jane and Mr Smith took 3 teams to play Riverside School. We respected all participants and the school, showed great netball skills and correct communication to get the win.
Unfortunately Riverside were the winners at Tag Rugby but nevertheless we will learn from our mistakes and take it into the next fixture. There was some great passing, runs and tries and we followed all the rules correctly which ensured we all had an amazing afternoon of Tag Rugby.
NETBALL TOURNAMENT DECEMBER 2017
A very cold morning didn't stop seventeen Year 3/4 children from working hard, and also showing tremendous skill, courage and belief that they could succeed in what was their first netball competition. Three teams placed 2nd (which is amazing) and two teams in joint 5th out of eight schools.
This is fantastic performance from the St Luke’s team, and they all have some great talent on the netball court. Keep it up!
Miss Jane took six motivated Year 5/6 netball players to Furze Platt to compete in the cold against other local schools. They all played superbly, showing passion and teamwork which is what we motivate them to do in our school and its great to see them carry this into another school.
Despite the cold, each player had a smile on their face, and showed their commitment to the sport and the team, despite the weather conditions.
“On Wednesday 29th November St. Luke’s went to a Hi5 Netball tournament (me and 5 other children).
All of us enjoyed it despite losing four games. Out of the seven games we played, we lost four and won three. However we found it all amazing and entertaining. Subsequently we were proud to come home with 5th place.”
