Cornwall County Table Tennis Competition

On Wednesday 5th December a boys and a girls team attended the Cornwall County Under 11s Table Tennis Team Championships. Both teams consisted of solely Year 4 and 5 children so they were the youngest teams competing in both categories.

They rose to the challenge and all performed well above their normal standard. They walked away with silver medals in both competitions and we look forward to returning next year, following a further year of practise and improvement, and attempting to go one better!

Sportshall Athletics

On Friday 30th November 48 of our Key Stage 2 children attended an indoor Athletics event at Penair School to compete against other primary schools from the local area.

Every single child represented the school, many for the first time, faultlessly.  Their effort, sportsmanship, support of one another and general attitude and behaviour was a real credit to the school and Mr Armstrong was very proud of them all.

The Year 5 and 6 team finished 5th, although with a little more luck they could have finished higher up the table, as a series of unfortunate slips and misunderstandings resulted in promising positions in numerous races not quite being capitalised upon.  However, whenever this occurred the runner in question sprung up and made every endeavour to resume the race and finish as strongly as possible to the support and cheering of an understanding and empathetic team.  It was also lovely to see a number of Year 6 children representing the school for the first time.

The Year 3 and 4 Team finished their competition in first place overall and will go on and represent the Penair Cluster in the next round of competition later in the academic year.  After winning the first five running events of the day, the team never looked back and went from strength to strength.  The children gave each other tremendous support and encouragement and the sense of team that was so evident throughout the morning.

Cornwall Schools FA County Finals

Having already played a league match (3-0 vs Threemilestone) and a cup match (11-0 vs Truro Learning Academy) this week, our football team travelled to Biscovey Academy on Friday afternoon to take part in the Cornwall Schools FA County Finals.

We played three matches against very strong teams and narrowly missed qualifying for the semi-finals, finishing with a record of two draws and a narrow defeat. The boys put in a great effort on a huge pitch and can be proud of the achievement of reaching the final stage of the county competition. Well done boys!

Arctic Antics!

KS1 are learning about the Arctic this term and we are finding out some exciting facts about the countries, life and animals above the Arctic circle.  To help our understanding of the environment in the Arctic this week all 90 children in KS1 put on their winter clothes and travelled to Eden for some ice play.  Despite the inclement weather we were very lucky to see the sun shine as we arrived.  Luckily the ice in the rink did not melt – it was cold and wet, just like the Arctic.   We all had so much fun playing with sledges, rocking horses, ride on toys and much more – even the adults joined in!  We also saw some interesting plants and sculptures as we walked through the site.  See below for just a taste of the fun!

 

 

Bosvigo into County finals!

Congratulations to our football team, who played in the Cornwall Schools FA open competition at Wadebridge Primary Academy and qualified for the County finals later this month.

Playing against excellent opposition, we came second overall with two wins and a draw from our four games. The team played its best football of the season and worked very hard, thoroughly deserving their qualification.

Football vs Mount Hawke

Congratulations to both our league and friendly teams, who won their respective matches against Mount Hawke School last night.

Our league team raced to a 3-0 lead in the first half, but the young Mount Hawke pulled one goal back and a close second half ended with the score at 3-1. Remaeus, Finn and Alfie were the scorers for Bosvigo.

Our friendly match was keenly played between two evenly matched teams, but Bosvigo came out on top thanks to great goals by Liam and Finley.

Our season continues next Monday when we make the short journey to St Mary’s hoping to make it three wins out of four.

Netball Tournament at Truro School

Today we headed off to Truro High School to take part in a High 5 Netball Tournament. There was excitement and nervous anticipation as it was the first competitive netball game for some of our players. We played a total of 5 games and grew in confidence and ability with each game. Despite losing our first 2 games, the girls showed a great team spirit, determination and resilience. We went on to win our next 2 games but tired towards the end and lost our final game.

Well done Bosvigo! – Milly, Matilda, Elsie, Amelia, Aurie, Iris and Thea.
