Cheerleading

On Wednesday 13th March, the Summercroft Tigers took part in the cheerleading competition at Birchwood High School. Altogether we had 4 hours to learn and perfect our cheer and dance, which means we only had half an hour each session. There were two groups, with four squads in each one. The team with the most points in each group faced each other head to head to determine the overall winner. Our Tigers performed extremely well, however, sadly, we did not win in our group. Despite the disappointment, we still cheered on the other teams as we were happy for their success. Thankfully, we did not leave empty handed; at every competition Cressy (our coach) awards one lucky cheerleader with the star cheerleader trophy. We are happy to say that this trophy was given to Tilly H, a member of our squad. Overall we all had a great time and are excited for the next competition.

Summercroft Football Achievements

On the 28th February, both the A and B football teams travelled to Manor Fields to compete in their most recent round of league fixtures. I am pleased to report that both teams returned victorious, with the A team producing a dominant win by four goals to one and the B team snatching a last minute goal to win by three goals to two. All of the children demonstrated high levels of skill, collaboration and determination.

Thank you once more to the parents of the squad members – your support always encourages the children to play to the best of their ability and without your help transporting the children to and from the games we would not be able to participate.

Mr Carter and Mr Eaton

Year 4 Change4Life event

On Monday 25th, ten Year 4 children were invited to attend a Change4Life event at Birchwood high school. They all had a great morning doing a variety of activities that focused on team building skills, strength, balance, flexibility and of course…fun! The children enjoyed the activities so much that they want to pinch some ideas and share them with the rest of Year 4. Here’s what some of the children had to say:

“The best activity was when we had a circuit to complete but we weren’t allowed to touch the floor.”

“I enjoyed the bouncing and throwing the ball activity the best.”

“I hope to go back again to play more games. I really liked the cones game where we had to compete for our own coloured cone.”

“The obstacle course activity was so much fun; I can’t wait to tell my friends.”

Champions of Bishop’s Stortford!

 

The Summercroft athletics squad started off the school’s 2019 sports schedule in style by coming first in the town’s indoor athletics competition. A total of 18 schools took part, with the event being split across two days. First up were the field events, which included foam javelin throwing, chest-push, standing long jump and speed bounce. It was incredible to see how well the children did after only a couple of sessions practising.

After this, the scores were announced and the team got a huge confidence boost upon hearing that they were in the lead. They never looked back, winning every race in the running segment of the competition. The points were tallied up and the final standings for the top three were:

1st – Summercroft 316 points

2nd – Reedings     276 points

3rd – St Andrews   270 points

Back at Summercroft, we were incredibly proud of the score the children posted, but even more so with the way in which the squad conducted themselves as winners and in representing the school. They will now go on to represent the town in the County Championships in March, which will be an amazing experience.

Quicksticks Tournament

On Thursday 25th October our hockey squad, consisting of our A and B teams, competed in the Birchwood School Partnership Quicksticks tournament against 26 other teams. The teams were split into two competitions, with our A team competing in the Gold Cup and our B team in the Silver Plate. Throughout the whole tournament, both of our teams were a credit to their school and families, competing with great skill, determination and respect. Both teams won their first three qualifying games and progressed to the semi finals of their cups – where unfortunately they had mixed fortune. Despite playing their best hockey, the B team were narrowly defeated 0-1 and were extremely unlucky not to at least take the game to extra time, whereas the A team won their semi final and then progressed to win the Gold Cup with a hard fought 1-0 over Windhill21 in the final.

We are extremely proud of all of the children’s efforts and attitude and now look forward to our A team representing the Bishop Stortford Partnership in the county finals in July.

Triumphant Year 4s

Summercroft A and B Year 4 football teams were triumphant in the tournament at Birchwood this week, which saw them play against other local primary schools.

Summercroft A Team played 5 games, with 4 wins and 1 draw. Summercroft B Team played 4 games with 4 wins. Every player did so well and they were all very supportive of each other and showed good sportsmanship towards the other teams. Not every member of each team could play each game but not one of the children grumbled or moaned when it wasn’t their turn but instead took to the side-lines to be chief supporter – great attitudes.

At the end of the B Team Tournament each team had to select a ‘Star Player’ from another school and Joseph  was chosen by the High Wych team – well done, Joseph!

In house, Summercroft A Team chose Jessica as their ‘Star Player’ for showing great determination and an increase in confidence throughout all the games she played.

Summercroft B Team chose Isabelle as she was nervous at the start and chose to watch the first game but after that got well and truly ‘stuck in’! Joshua and Theo were noted as being particularly supportive of their team mates – well done, boys.

Thanks to Mrs Zelezinski who stepped in at the last minute to come and support us – we really appreciate your help.

Congratulations to you all – you were all a pleasure! And well done for the win!

Football and Hockey Tournaments

The first week back was jam packed with sporting events and all of the staff are extremely proud of the children who participated for their efforts and attitude.

On Wednesday morning, the Year 4 football team competed in the KAS Football Festival. Despite only having one training session together, the team performed brilliantly. They showed great talent, determination and togetherness to produce some great performances, so much so that Mr Carter is extremely excited at the prospect of having them as part of the Year 5 and 6 football team in the next couple of years.

Following the Year 4’s efforts were the Year 5 and 6 Girls football team. They also competed in a KAS Football Festival on Wednesday. Building on their prior successes as a team this year, the girls put together some excellent performances, only conceding 2 goals and losing one match in the whole tournament. If it wasn’t for the extreme heat and a sickness bug affecting our players then Mrs Dawson assures us that we would have been coming home with a trophy.

On Thursday, our Year 6 hockey squad competed in the BSP Quicksticks tournament. The squad was comprised of two teams who performed brilliantly. Both teams played with determination throughout and produced some outstanding team performances, scoring some excellent goals and making astonishingly brave last – ditch tackles. Unfortunately we didn’t bring back a trophy for our efforts, however, one of our teams were only one match off reaching the grand final.

Finally, on Friday, the A and B football teams took part in the final KAS Football Festival. Building on the excellent progress that they have made already this year, both teams gave their all to produce some excellent performances. The B Team remained unbeaten during their group stage matches despite having to face A Teams from two other schools and qualified for the Gold cup, while the A Team kept their nerve and were victorious during two penalty shootouts to win the Silver Cup. Mr Eaton and Mr Carter are extremely proud of their effort and positive attitude on Friday and during the whole year so far.

Girls football – 23rd November 2017

After previously winning their qualifying group, the Year 5 and 6 girls football team took part in the final of the county girls qualifiers against Northgate School on Thursday 23rd November. The team made an excellent start, ending the first half with a 3-1 lead after some exceptional play. During the second half, the team continued to perform with determination and confidence, however unfortunately Northgate managed to score three more goals and ended up winning the match by 4 goals to 3. Despite their defeat, our girls remained positive and showed great sportsmanship in congratulating their opposition. They truly did do themselves and the school proud.
