Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby Festival at Saracens WGC
Well done to all the year 6 children who took part in the friendly Tag Rugby Festival at Saracens Welwyn Garden City last week. We won all our matches and impressed Mrs Davies with a fantastic display of teamwork and sporting attitudes all round. Well done!
Following the success of our Year 5 Running Festival 4 children were selected to run for the Monks Walk Partnership at the Borough Partnership Finals. The children ran 1.7 miles and all put in an astonishing effort. Annabel and Keira represented the school and the partnership fantastically as did Harry and Luke.
All 4 children contributed to a win for Monks Walk Partnership and Luke was the overall winner in the boys race.
Goal Ball Workshops for Year 4 and 6
Year 4 and 6 were lucky enough to take part in a Goal Ball workshop at the start of the Autumn term. Great fun was had by all the children and it was an invaluable learning experience for all the children involved.
Goal ball encouraged the children to communicate with each other and work on their teamwork skills while experiencing a Paralympic sport.
Pre-Season Netball Tournament
Well done to all the Year 6 girls who attend our Thursday Netball club for taking part in a
pre-season festival at Mount Grace School. Both our A and B teams played with great effort and demonstrated some impressive teamwork. An encouraging start to the season.
On Friday 6th October, a team of eight plucky Year 6 girls attended the Welwyn and Hatfield Sports Partnership Year 5&6 football tournament, which was held at Monk's Walk School. We were placed in a preliminary pool group to determine the strongest teams present and, after claiming victory in all of our games, were pitted against Birchwood and Welwyn St Mary's in the 'gold' pool. After some resolute defending from Thea, Aleyna, and Anastasia, we kept our clean sheet record going into the final game, with 'keeper Lily excelling between the sticks as we beat Birchwood 1-0. Our last game was against a very strong Welwyn St Mary's team yet, once again, our goal-machine Tiana was in fine form, ably supported by a talented midfield trio of Holly, Megan and Rhiannon, and we retained our undefeated record! Crowned champions of the tournament, the girls should be very proud of themselves!
Year 5 Running Festival
Year 5 ran fantastically at the running festival at Monks Walk School and came first overall in both the boys and girls races. Well done year 5!
On Wednesday 20th September, Year 4 were invited to take part in a Tag Rugby Festival at Welwyn Garden City Rugby Club. All of the children played brilliantly, with many of our teams being undefeated - plus some of our boys being scouted by a local talent spotter! Well done to everyone for brilliant sporting behaviour: you were a credit to our school and Miss Kropman really enjoyed taking you!
High 5 Netball Festival
Well done year 6 girls for your fantastic effort at our first High 5 festival of the year. A really impressive start and a great show of skills, tactics and netball enthusiasm!
On Wednesday 13th September, Year 3 were invited to take part in a Multi-Sports Festival at Welwyn St. Mary's. All of the children performed brilliantly across a range of different sports and Miss Kropman was very impressed with their effort and behaviour. Well done to everyone!
