Due to a waterlogged pitch the scheduled match against Wyken Croft School tomorrow has been cancelled. We did try to rearrange the fixture to play it at their school however they have the same problem. The game will hopefully take place later this month. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
Mr R Youson
Yesterday 10 children from Year 1 and 2 took part in the School Games KS1 Gymnastics Competition at Tribe. This is the first year we have taken part in this competition and was a great experience for the children.
Over the last 3 or 4 weeks they have been practicing 2 routines, 1 floor and 1 vault. This dedication really paid off as the school finished in 2nd place overall with 112.3 points.
The children were a credit to the school, performing and behaving fantastically. Well done everyone.
Thank you to all the parents that managed to get their children here early on Friday mornings to practice, it was a huge help. As the children enjoyed the club we are hoping to add it to our list of clubs shortly.
I have added a few pictures below and a video of each child’s vault routine.

16 lucky children from Year 4,5 and 6 had the opportunity to take part in a Rugby Experience Day on Saturday thanks to Coventry Rugby Club. The children had a tour of the ground, met the players, performed the guard of honor and played a game at half time. They all had a fantastic time and and were great representatives of the school.
Below are some pictures of the day sent in by parents.
Children in KS2 had a terrific time today as they tried fencing for the first time. Children learnt all aspects of the Olympic sport from being a fencing athlete to being an official referee. Safety was paramount throughout the day as they had to wear all the correct equipment before they were allowed to participate.
As the children were so keen and enjoyed it immensely there will hopefully be a new fencing club starting in the new year. Please keep an eye out on the clubs letters for this as there will be very limited spaces available.

On Tuesday the Y5/6 football team played their first game of the season against St Thomas More. It was a highly competitive game that ended 2 -2, a fair result on reflection.
The team started slowly and although they played some nice football saw themselves 2 nil down at half time.
After a quick pep talk the children reacted well and thanks to goals from Connor and Zach we were level at 2-2 just 2 minutes after the start of the second half. The game could then have gone either way with both sides having chances to win it late on.
Well played everyone it was a great game and a fantastic start to the season.
Player of the Match (Picked by St Tomas More): Connor
Thanks to Mrs Walsh for sending in the photos.
Well done to the All Souls Netball team who played their first match of the season against St. Osburgs at home tonight. The match was evenly fought which was reflected in the final score of 2-2.
Thank you to the team of Year Six players: Aila, Michael, Lily, Connor, Julia and Caleb. Every one worked hard throughout and for half of these players it was their first ever match. Congratulations to Aila for being a great captain and for being named as our player of the match by St. Osburgs. Thank you also to the two members of staff from St. Osburgs for umpiring the match.
Our next game is against St. Augustine’s, at home, next Tuesday.
Thankfully the weather held out for our sports day today and the children had a great time competing in both the novelty and sprint races.
Congratulations to everyone who took part (including the teachers and parents) and thanks to all the children, including three past students Issy, Sophie and Kelsey, who helped setup the obstacle courses and give out awards.
Aila from Year 5 took lots of photos throughout the afternoon (233 to be precise) so there are plenty for you to look at below.
Year 5 cricket team had a great time at Corley Cricket Club today. They played some great cricket scoring lots of runs and taking plenty of wickets resulting in them finishing in fourth place. Well done! – next tournament is on Tuesday 20th June at The Standard Cricket Club.
If your child would like to take part in either or both the Tag Rugby and Rounders clubs then please fill in the form below.
On Saturday 4 boys and 3 girls took part in the Coventry Schools Cross Country Relay Competition. It didn’t start off great as there should’ve been 4 girls in the race, unfortunately one of them had to drop out due to injury. This meant that the girls couldn’t compete in the race competitively, however thanks to the kindness of a girl from St John Vianney School we did manage to take part. Ebony joined our team to enable them to race non-competitively. They all tried their best and managed to complete the race. Well done girls
The boys race was always going to be a tough race as most of the team were from Year 4 and would be competing mainly against Year 6 children. Therefore I gave them the challenge to finish in the top 15. They were all up for this and gave everything on their way round the course and when Kai took the final leg it was a nervous wait to see where they had finished. Incredibly they managed to finish in 14th position which was a great achievement for them. Congratulations boys!
On Thursday more children from the school will be taking part in the Catholic Cross Country Event, we wish them good luck on their way round the 2000m course.
