Year 3/4 Athletics Competition - 11th Oct|
The Broughton Juggernaut Is Slowly Getting Started!! :-)
Year 3 and 4 Primary Stars Athletics Competition – 11th Oct – Play Football, Tulketh
Thursday 12th October was the day of the Year 3 and 4 Athletics Competition – the first of three over 2017-18. This event was an area we have identified as a school that we knew we could win and would provide some incredibly valuable points towards the Preston School Championship title. The teams were fired up for this one, it seemed a bit more than ever before. We had been practising hard for this and we were determined to demonstrate the skills we’d been learning to all in Preston. The events went so well for our team and were extremely well fought out by around 3 or 4 schools. In the end we scored 132 and ended up in 3rd place overall. This was a great achievement from a great set of athletes who have demonstrated a level of potential that I believe can dominate Preston for years to come. Well done to all the team: Emilia Simpson (Capt), Neve Kusnierek, Abigail Smith, Saqlain Iftikhar, Rayhaan Mohammed, Matthew Ward, Olivia Leech (Capt), Heidi Andrews, Georgia Leech, Arthur Freye, Oliver Pagnillo and Dilan Ridley.
Mr. Bird’s Comments: Well done to all from Mr. Bird. You are an amazing team, you were so amazing on the day and I am so amazingly proud of everything you have achieved. You deserve all the glory that comes your way.
Year 1/2 Athletics Competition - 28th Sept|
Year 2 Superstars claim 2nd in the whole of Preston!!
Year 1 and 2 Primary Stars Athletics Competition – 28th Sept – Play Football, Tulketh
Thursday 28th September was the day of the Year 1 and 2 Athletics Competition – the first of three over 2017-18. This event was the start of four competitions over the next four weeks and it was vital that we got our journey to the Preston School Championship title on the road. The only way was up. The team was excited, prepared and ready to rock and roll. We had been practising hard for this and we were determined to demonstrate the skills we’d been learning to all in Preston. The events went so well for our team and were extremely well fought out by around 3 or 4 schools. In the end we scored 105 points out of a possible 114 and ended up in 2nd place overall. This was a great achievement from a great set of athletes who have demonstrated a level of potential that I believe can dominate Preston for years to come. Well done to all the team, here are my comments on each child’s performance:
Isabella Pace: Isabella, the ‘Start Queen’. She was given the big responsibility of starting off each running race, I would argue this is the toughest position. However, did this phase her? Course not. If you ever get the pleasure of meeting Isabella and what’s more seeing her run, you will realise that she is born to run incredibly fast and she has such a skill of rising to the occasion. I’m so proud of you girl, well done!
Natasha Smith: Cometh the hour, cometh the girl. She was dominant in the Bucket Ball, had time to rearrange her hair in the Star Pass and then blew the rest of the field away with her incredible running. She ran as fast as a locomotive steam train and there was no-one catching her. Natasha was full of energy and her infectious smile radiated around the rest of the group, you superstar Natasha.
India Thompson-Amrith: India was so excited to demonstrate her incredible speed and all round strength here. She did not disappoint. India has such wonderful pace and was so delicate and quick across the agility test. She has such a bubbly, positive attitude in everything that she does and this has such a positive effect on her team mates. What a wonderful athlete you are India!
Alfie Derbyshire: Alfie, where do I start? I think you were born to do sports of all types. You have such an amazing attitude and you have so much fire in your belly that it drives the rest of your team on to great things. Alfie ran like a thoroughbred horse and demonstrated amazing concentration/leadership to push us all the way in the Star Pass. You are a true legend Alf, J
Joshua Newman-Kirk: Josh ‘the Pocket Rocket/Finisher.’ He had the job of finishing all of the running races. This is a tough job because you have to be patient waiting for your turn and you have the job of bringing home the glory in our case. This was a pressure that Josh handled admirably and did such an amazing job. He has so much energy and like Alfie is born to do many sports. You’re going to be a superstar for Broughton for years to come Josh.
Dylan Patel: This boy has ice flowing through his veins I think, haha. Dylan you are such a superstar, a credit to Broughton and an all-round amazing person. This cool, calm precision came to the fore in the Bucket Ball event as he kept banging them in the middle one after the other. Your cool, calm persona helped keep your team mates really calm and focused. You are again a true superstar from Mr. Bird.
Well done to all from Mr. Bird. You are an amazing team, you were so amazing on the day and I am so amazingly proud of everything you have achieved. You deserve all the glory that comes your way.
