Christmas sports blog

It has been a very successful term in sport at St.Ipps! We have beaten our record for the most amount of sporting events entered in this particular term .Entering new competitions and allowing many children to have opportunities representing our school in a variety of different sports. Throughout all PE and sport at school this term the attitude and behaviour from the children has to be commended. As it is often noted by many, we would like to say how honoured we are as a school.

 I would to thank all parents that have given lifts to and from the events. We appreciate you giving up your time as we wouldn’t be able to take part without transport.

In the football this term both girls and boys have managed to maintain such a superb attitude and performance throughout all their fixtures and training so far. The participation and commitment from both football clubs has been great and would like all of you to join back in January. Congratulations to the boys A team who made it to two cup finals already this season. Unfortunately, being edged in both, but still managing to bring back some silverware. However being one of only three schools in the district to reach both semi-finals in the WIX cup it gives our teams something to look forward to for next term.

I would like to give Mr Smith a mention for completing his first term. What an asset he has been to the school so far allowing us to further all clubs and PE lessons in school.

Congratulations to our Trampoline team who are u’11 intermediate regional champions after their recent competition in Hatfield!

Reminder that all classes will have an outdoor lesson next term so please has tracksuits and sensible footwear ready for January J

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday and hopefully Father Christmas will be on his way J

End of Half term

Good morning everyone

We have completed our first half term of the year! It has been a very sporty few weeks for St.Ipps with football rally’s, sporting futures on tour, cross country, rugby, table tennis and lots more to look forward to for when we come back .

Your children have been a joy to take to these sporting events as ever. We are always credited on our sportsmanship and positive attitude and as a school we are very proud that they have represented us in such a brilliant way.

Would like to say a big thank you for any parents who have given up their spare time to offer lifts to and from events as without you we would struggle to make these opportunities realistic .

As you are aware we have a new sports apprentice! Mr Smith, who has been with us two weeks now and is already showing how much of an asset he will be to the school, We are very lucky to have him as we will be able to offer more with him on board .

Please can all parents ensure that after half term every child has a full PE kit in school as it is weather depending on where the lessons are taught and we need to be prepared for all circumstances.

Hope everyone has a well-rested half term and will look forward to seeing everyone after the break.

Sports Rundown

Blog – Sports Rundown Happy Friday everyone! Christmas time is upon us. With the term coming to an end I thought I would round up the sporting achievement. Starting with Class 5 swimming . Last one this coming Monday . I have seen such an improvement in our all swimmers this term and hope all have enjoyed it . A special mention to Miss Walker and the netball team as they played in their first friendly netball match of the season against St. Andrews. Well done to our captain Neve who lead the team, which resulted in some fabulous teamwork overall. We are looking to organise a few more matches for Netball club in the New Year. Well done to our football boys that managed to take part in the football tournament and bring back a third place trophy. I am very proud of our boy’s attitude and sportsmanship as both our sports teams continue to represent our school impeccably. Also, I am very proud of our trampoline team who took part in the Eastern Region competition in Brentwood. It was our first chance to compete in the new team leotard! There was tough competition for all of our gymnasts as the groups increasing in sizes since last year. Well done to both Patrick and Ralph who competed as individuals. Our team of Mia , Elin , Katie and Holly showed some real form and came close to qualifying . Congratulations to Chloe who managed to qualify for the next round of the competition. As some of you may know we have had Stanley Stevenson Bear come and visit us at St.Ippolyts for a week full of fun. Given to us by Stevenage Sporting Futures to live in our school for a week and has had a fantastic time. Expect to see pictures after Christmas . I would like to thank parents for being so supportive and working with us to sort transport to and from events. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year, for more exciting sporting events. Mr J

We still have many games to come in the lead up to Christmas with both A+B teams playing almost every week . I would to thank all parents for being so efficient with returning kit and hope it can continue for the rest of the season . Also in the previous half term we were fortunate enough to have Sporting Futures provide us with the Mini Olympics event in which our year one children took part in, it gave us all the opportunity to try some new sporting activities. I hope everyone has had a well rested half term break in preparation for a busy few weeks ahead. Mr.Jefferies

Saturday 19th September

The early season rally was upon as again ! A bright breezy morning at Wilshere Dacre school was host to the friendly rally as it has been for many years. We went into the rally with high hopes after our midweek victory . The boys played extremely well once again as we managed to pick up two wins from four matches. Despite our best efforts we were beaten by the two hot favourites of this years league being William Ransom and Ickleford . However in all four of our matches we showed real heart and character and as most of you who attended this event will agree , we can be proud of the boys performance . Next match this Thursday as we travel to St.Andrews for our next league fixture. Mr Jefferies
