Super Squash!

Class 7 has been given an amazing opportunity this term to learn how to play squash! Every Tuesday, come rain or shine, we walk down to Hendra Squash Club like a flourescent, orange crocodile to meet our coach Rory.  Once changed and eager, Rory shares his knowledge of the game with us and  passes on his fantastic racket skills to willing Class 7 players!

Our tables are named after countries from the Roman Empire.  This is what we say:

Greece, “Rory is our amazing teacher for squash.  He teaches us to bounce the ball off the wall and throw it to our partners.” “Rory makes us super stretchy and fit”.

Spain, “For the last few weeks, Class 7 has been going to squash every Tuesday.  It is extremely exciting!”

Great Britain, “We do lots of warm ups and sometimes we get to hit the ball against the wall.” “We have lots of fun at squash”. “Although we have an amazing time, we have to go whatever the weather”.

France, “Squash is fun with Rory, our squash teacher”.

Egypt, ” It is not as hard as it looks and I found it quite easy”. “Squash is a great sporty game and we get taught by a great teacher, Rory.” “He teaches us great tactics and gives us lots of information”.

Mrs Gabriele, “The squash ball moves really fast so it’s hard to hit!”

We think you should tell your teacher and then maybe you can have a turn.

Year 5/6 Football Tournament

On Wednesday our Year 5/6 footballers took part in a Truro schools football tournament held at Richard Lander. The team was made up of Year 6s, but also included Ras and Orlando from Years 3 and 4 respectively.

There were 17 teams involved altogether and Bosvigo found themselves in Group D along with Mithian, Devoran B and Treyew. The team played extremely well in all three games and won each game 1-0 thanks to goals from Ras, Marshall and Luke. Orlando made excellent saves in each game, but the team generally defended well and are beginning to pass the ball more purposefully to create many more goalscoring opportunitites – we just need to score a few more!

After winning our group we were through to the quarter finals where we played Kea School. Kea were familiar opponents for Bosvigo, as we had played one another in the league on Monday (losing 1-0 in the dark after beating Mount Hawke 1-0 in the first match of the afternoon). In a hard fought match chances were few and far between, but Kea scored twice in the last minute of the game to end our promising run of form.

Our final league match of the term takes place on 5th December when we face St Mary’s.

The future is bright for football at Bosvigo!

 

We enjoyed an entertaining afternoon at Kea School today as our Year 3/4 boys football team played their first matches for the school. Six teams took part in the competition – Bosvigo, Kea, Archbishop Benson, Devoran, St Mary’s and St Erme and our boys enjoyed five high-quality matches.

After drawing our opening match against Archbishop Benson, we played St Mary’s and won 2-0 thanks to two goals from midfielder Jak. We then produced our best perfromance of the day to beat an in-form St Erme 3-0 with a superb hat-trick from Joe. Our fourth game finished with a flourish with Ras scoring a great equaliser with the last kick of the game, having gone a goal down seconds before. We went into the last game with a chance of coming first overall, but ran out of steam a little and were narrowly beaten 1-0 by eventual champions Devoran.

The boys came third overall, a point behind Archbishop Benson, and can be delighted with their performances. A number of parents and teachers from other schools commented on how promising our team looks and it won’t be long before more of our Year 3 and 4 children are playing football for the Year 6 team. Well done to all ten boys involved!
