Girls’ Football – Cup Competition

During April, 10 girls from Years 5 and 6 took part in their cup competition at Seaton Domes. There were 8 matches overall, meaning it was a very tiring afternoon.

Overall, we managed to win one and draw 3 of our games. Throughout the competition the girls demonstrated an amazing attitude and passion for the game.

Cluster Netball Festival

Cluster Netball Festival

On 28th of February 2017, a group of Y6 netball players travelled to Manor College for a much anticipated netball tournament.  It was very difficult to choose only 7 from the excellent group of Y6s who had been training together in the build up to the tournament, and those who were chosen did not disappoint!

There were 5 teams at the tournament with 10 matches taking place. The positive and encouraging attitude of the Fens team was notable from the start and resulted in some very exciting netball. Fast dodging, high jumping and some very accurate shooting led the team to victory in 2 of their matches, and they finished joint 2nd in the table. With bated breath, Fens waited to see if they would progress to the next round, but unfortunately lost out narrowly on goal difference.

It was a fantastic afternoon, showcasing the skills and dedication of the Fens netballers, who represented Fens extremely well, leading by example with their sportsmanship and teamwork. Well done everyone!

Town Swimming Gala

Town Swimming Gala

In February pupils from Y5 and Y6 took part in the town Swimming Gala. Earlier on in the school year all children had raced each other and were timed in their PE lessons so we knew we were taking the fastest swimmers from our school.

There were two galas, a large schools and a smaller schools gala. Five boys and five girls were racing in front crawl, backstroke and breast stroke events as well as relays. The children scored points for their individual races which were totalled to find overall winners at the end of the morning.  Our pupils were superb with lots of first and second places being won. The final race was the cannon relay where every team member had to swim.  Fens set off well and managed to hold the lead for the majority of the race.  Unfortunately they were pipped at the post by Sacred Heart in a very exciting finish.  Throughout the morning, children were cheered and supported by fellow pupils, staff and parents and at the end of the gala proudly received their medals from the mayor.  Fens and Sacred Heart finished with the exact same points and were joint first place.  As Sacred Heart had won two more races than Fens they were awarded the shield for overall winners.

We were very proud of our swimming team and acknowledge their fantastic achievement.  Well done everyone who took part!

Throughout the afternoon games were very fast and the vast array of basketball skills from all involved was very impressive! All of the teams played five games. Our passing and dribbling was superb but unfortunately we struggled to score enough baskets to finish in the top two. The children represented Fens superbly, never giving up and displaying first class attitudes.  Well done to all involved.

Y5/6 Girls Football Competition

Girls Football Competition

The week beginning 10th October saw the start of “Girls Football Week.”

The agenda of the week, as outlined by the FA was: “Together we can get more girls than ever playing football this October.”

With this in mind Hartlepool United Community Sports Foundation organised a girls only football tournament. 

After many extremely and highly participated, lunchtime practices at Fens this term, it was a very difficult decision for staff to choose only one team. 

However, as usual our pupils did us proud at the competition and again a positive attitude and excellent sportsmanship shone throughout.  There were 16 teams altogether in a very well organised afternoon of competition. Players from the Hartlepool Ladies and Sunderland Ladies teams were on hand, offering support, advice and encouragement to the pupils involved.  Our girls played six matches in all and managed to reach the final of the “Plate” Competition.  Fens played Ferryhill in the final which was closely fought and resulted in a 1-0 win for Ferryhill who scored in the very last minute of the game.  Nonetheless, Fens were happy with their runner up medal and had thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon.  Well done girls! 

Y5/6 Tag Rugby Cluster Competition

At the beginning of October some of our pupils took part in the first sporting competition of the new school year.  Pupils from Y5 and Y6 represented the school in Tag Rugby.  The competition was held at West Hartlepool RFC   where the children thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon of sporting competition.  Matches were closely fought with sportsmanship and sporting attitudes first class from all schools.  Our Y6 teams managed to win a place in the semi-finals where they were unfortunately just beaten by a strong Greatham team.  The afternoon was enjoyed by all and the children of Fens were, as usual, a credit to themselves and the school. Well done to everyone who took part.
