Boys' cricket competition

On Wednesday 13th June, 10 boys travelled to Garons to play in the boys’ cricket competition. In the morning the team had 3 games to play in the group stage, they played Darlinghurst, Westborough and Heycroft. The first match was very close with the boys just missing out on the win by 2 runs, with two games left the boys continued to improve their bowling and fielding as well as their batting skills, but were unable to get a win. In the afternoon the boys played two friendly matches against Westborough and Earls Hall. The boys improved throughout each match and enjoyed this fantastic opportunity to play cricket against other schools. They demonstrated superb sportsmanship all through the d

Quicksticks Hockey

On Wednesday 13th June, six year 6 children (4 boys and 2 girls) travelled to Chelmsford Hockey club to play in the county Quicksticks hockey finals. We played in extreme heat, five consecutive games against Perryfields 0-0 Elmwood 1-1 Mildmay won 3-1 Cathedral A won 2-0 Writtle A won 4-0 and Terling B 1–1 We were regrouped in the afternoon and because three schools had finished on 24 points it went down to goal difference which meant that we came 3rd in our pool. We then played Writtle B and after a very close game lost 3-2 and our final game was against St Michaels (Chelmsford) 1-1. It meant that we had played eight games and lost only once! Well done to all the children, demonstrating exc

KS2 Cricket competition

On Tuesday 12th June, nine Year 6 girls played at Garons in the KS2 cricket competition. There were 12 schools present. We lost to Earls Hall and Blenheim (by only 6 runs) and beat Temple Sutton by 17 runs. After lunch the competition had to be postponed due to the heavy rain! However the girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience and their batting and fielding skills improved as they went along. I was very impressed with the way the girls encouraged each other during their games. Well done to all of them. #Year6 #Sport #Wholeschool
