Welcome to the CK Sports Reports Page
Our current School Sports Representative, Cayden, will be writing some of the reports giving us his blow by blow accounts of the matches and events that he attends this year. We hope you will also enjoy looking back at the reports from previous Ambassadors and Reporters as they share their reports of various sporting events through the years.
Pupils from year 5/6 went to compete in a gymnastics tournament at Hennock Primary school, against 5 other teams. The children each had to learn a routine before completing a vault jump aspect. They had worked very hard to learn the routine off by heart. In the end, Chudleigh Knighton came 3rd with 181 points overall, just losing out to 2nd place who got 185 points. It does mean that overall Chudleigh Knighton are still top of the overall table, with 15 total points.
Well done to all!
Just after Christmas, year 3 and 4 went to South Dartmoor secondary school to play in the partnership finals. This was because they came first in the tournament that was held at Teign school. In the finals, there were 11 teams in total; Chudleigh Knighton played 7 games in total. We did really well and came fourth overall!
The year 5/6 team had a busy netball day on Tuesday 5th December: they had progressed to a South Dartmoor partnership finals and were also hosting a tournament in the afternoon with various local schools. The senior team performed very well and only narrowly missed out in progressing from the group stages. The seniors made up for it though by beating everyone in the tournament held at Chudleigh Knighton and winning every game! This puts the school in first place with 10 points in the league table with the next sporting round focusing on Gymnastics in February. Finally, a massive thanks to Mrs.Hartigan for looking after the team during the day and officiating some games. Well done to all!
The senior and colts teams played their Lady Seawards counterparts in two exciting matches. The colts team demonstrated resolute defence and secured a well deserved 1-0 victory, with Harry Simons producing some fantastic saves. The senior team demonstrated all our school values, in addition to well-tempered grit and determination. Coming back from 3-1 down, they managed to level the scores to 3-3 by dominating the second half. Unfortunately, Lady Seawards put together a well worked corner and score a goal with minutes left. Well done to all four teams. They were a credit to their schools!
Year three and four netball tournament at Teign School
Children from year 3 and 4 took part in a inter school tournament at Teign School's netball course. They played extremely well! So well that they have now progressed to the partnership finals,where they will play schools from across Devon! A huge well done from everyone at CK.
Belstone netball festival at Teign School
Children from Belstone class visited Teign school to take part in our Dartmoor School Sport Partnership netball festival. The children competed against themselves (within the class) but also against other schools that are part of the partnership. One of the highlights of the session was Chudleigh Knighton setting a record in a variant of Netball by scoring 25 points, with the previous record being 14! All the children really enjoyed themselves and cherished the ability to challenge themselves against other schools.
Sports Aspire sponsorship.
Rhys Williams and Mr.Skinner are astounded at the amount Chudleigh Knighton have been able to raise. The grand total of a staggering.... £1019.80 has been confirmed! This will be shared by the Aspire Sports foundation in helping young athletes aswell improving our own sports provision. Children -who were able to find sponsorship for any amount- have received a signed photograph of Andrew Cronin. In addition, some children were also awarded medals for particular milestones of raised money. Well done to all!
Rhys Williams visit!
Today, we had an Olympic athlete (Rhys Williams) come in to visit us. He spoke to the whole school about his career- which was the four hundred metre hurdles. We learnt about the exercises he does before a race: press ups, sit ups and leg pumps. Then he told us about his sports academy. He said he is bringing in another athlete called Andrew Cronin and he does free running. If we you manage to get 10 pounds from sponsors you will get a bronze medal, a silver one if you do 20 and thirty for a gold. We all can't wait to take part next week!
Sports reporting by Cayden
Exeter Chiefs Tag Rugby:
Some Exeter Chiefs coaches came in for a couple of weeks to work with Burrator ( who are year 3 and 4). They were called Rich and Anne. Burrator played many games but also learnt Math's within rugby. Some of the better games were stuck in the mud and the chase, which meant you had two people from each team go in the middle of the pitch, then they had to get to the other side without getting caught.
Chudleigh Knighton Primary School took part in the interschool football tournament at Blackpool School. The Colts and Seniors wore our brand new kit that has been kindly sponsored by Bovey Macadam. They wore their kits proudly and represented the school superbly. Several of our parents were there to cheer them on their way as they played the games, displaying superb Christian values of Teamwork and Respect throughout.
Draw against St Catherine's Primary School
Chudleigh Knighton Football Team fought hard against St Catherine's but in the end the score was a 3-3 draw. There were lots of chances at both ends and Wilson worked hard, in goal, to keep the score line lower. Well done to both sides for playing well and thank you to all the supporters for braving the cold to come and support the teams.
League Match against Abbotskerswell
Chudleigh Knighton Football Team headed over to Abbotskerswell for their league match. It was a very cold day but the boys who played didn't notice the temperature as they raced about the pitch. Being on tarmac might have been a tough challenge for them when they are used to the grass but they certainly didn't let it get in the way of playing some great football. The goals soon came and the final score was 5-0. There were a few very close misses too! Well done to all of you for playing with real enthusiasm. The team thanked the adults who had taken time out to drive them to the venue and support them.
Football Match at Moretonhampstead
Chudleigh Knighton Football Team took on Morehampstead Primary School in a match played away from home. The sun was shining but the temperature was very cold unlike the warm welcome that the team got from the Home team. The game was end to end with some great passes being made and some great saves too from both goalies. The bar got in the way a couple of times but the game was still high scoring and ended in a 5-5 draw. Both teams gave a final cheer to each other and posed for a lovely team photo. Well done to all our players for giving your all.
Tour of Britain - Cycling at Haytor
In September 2016 the Year 5s and 6s were taking the coach from Bovey Tracey Cricket Club to the bottom of Haytor Road hill. When we got off the coach we were given Tour of Britain goody bags with posters and pens and lots of other items. Next we went to get our helmets and mountain bikes fitted so we could ride safely. The four of us practised round in circles then we were put into rows of four with different children from other schools. The weather was now pouring cats and dogs! The hill looked easy but it was nearly impossible for us to get up. There was the podium and the big screen, we were racing in short groups of four. We stayed to the end to see Bradley Wiggins and the other racers ride past. Primrose told me 'I did love it but it was very difficult.'

Football League Champions!
On Wednesday 10th February, Chudleigh Knighton football team went down to the school field and played against All Saint's Marsh in the last match of the season. Chudleigh Knighton won the match 4-1!
Both the teams played very well against each other, with Dylan scoring 2, Daniel scoring 1 and I scored the final one for our team. Winning the match meant that we became League Champions!
