Welcome to the CK Sports Reports Page
Our current School Sports Representative Zack, 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.
Spring half term update (January to February):
Year 5 were invited to a festival at Teign school. The session was aimed at handball. A very well organised event took place with children being split and encouraged to work with other people and students from different schools. All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learned new skills that can be incorporated across a multitude of sports.
Netball has been a huge success for both our year 5/6 team and our 3/4. The year 5/6 team travelled to Stover school towards the end of January to take part in our school partnership netball tournament. Out of 57 teams, the 5/6 teach reached the semi-finals before losing only 1-0. Well done to all involved! The year 5/6 team also managed to get a friendly game in away to Westcliff Primary school with a satisfying win, that encompassed teamwork, perseverance and compassion. Year 3/4 were also able to follow up the fantastic win by winning their game against their Westcliff counterparts. A huge well done to all teams taking part and a thank you to Mrs.Hartigan for her training and dedication to providing the children with a fantastic club. Thank you to all the parents that were able to support and transport some of our children down too.
Year 5/6 football: Unfortunately our game against Rydon and Lady Seaward's got postponed but this didn't stop the team from playing an intra friendly game between the squad! The game was a fiercely frantic game with it ending 4-4! Well done to all.
Tag rugby at Teign school:
On 13.11.18 a year 5/6 team were selected to take part in our sports partnership tag rugby tournament. We managed to play 5 matches. The team played extremely well and had an outstanding team ethos, with lots of encouragement and good sportsmanship toward the opposition. Out of 5 matches, we won 4. We lost our 3rd game by only one try. This means we came second and will now play in the playoff sports partnership finals later in the year.
Match Report: 01.11.18
Denbury vs Chudleigh Knighton
CK travelled to Denbury primary school in the small schools league fixture. The match was hotly and evenly contested. Our sports ambassador and captain's take on the game:
" In the last minute, Harrison passed down the field to Freddie who then passed it onto me. I manage to swerve and score a goal which made the score 1-1. The defenders worked really well together and the midfielders worked very hard. Denbury was a tough team, so it was hard to score against them!"
Belstone were invited to Teign School (26.09.18) to take part in their Tag Rugby festivals with schools from our Teign Valley Learning Community. They developed practical skills in order to participate, and complete challenges, chose and combined techniques in game situations such as running, throwing, catching, passing and jumping whilst working alone, or with team mates in order to gain points or possession. Belstone had the opportunity to field, defend and attack tactically by anticipating the direction of play, choosing the most appropriate tactics for a game. They upheld the spirit of fair play and respect in all game situations and had an enjoyable afternoon making friends with those at other schools.
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!
