Year 5 Netball - Redhill High School
On Thursday 8th March, the Year 5 netball teams were taken the short trip to Redhill school to compete in this years netball competition. The A team had a lot of success winning all but one of their group games by big margins. The B team won one game in a very tough group however did themselves proud having only had a short time to practice. Eventually the A team reached the semi final where we came up against a strong team and unfortunately lost out 1-0. All of the children involved did Wollescote proud on the day and although they were disappointed to lose they did extremely well and all the sports coaches were proud of their efforts.
Cross Country Events
St Josephs - 7/3/18 - The cross country event took place at St. Josephs Primary School. 14 Children took part in the 1km race. All the children did fantastically well as they have never ran over that distance before, with some no realising how hard it was going to be. We had success in the event with Eduards coming 24th in the boys race. The other children were not far behind but all of them should be proud of the effort they put in during the race.
Year 1 SMILE Event- 15th March
On the 15th March, Mrs Petchey and Mr Horton took 10 year 1 pupils to Tipton Sports Academy where they took part in a fantastic event. During the event, the children were offered a new insight to fun, innovative sports that they thoroughly enjoyed. Both Mrs Petchey and Mr Horton enjoyed seeing the children blossom at the event and could see from the children's reactions how much they enjoyed it.
Swimming Gala- Thursday 22nd March
On the 22nd March, Wollescote hosted our half termly swimming gala whre we came up against Amblecote Primary School. On previous occasions Amblecote have been very strong and have been victorious in the swimming galas. However, on this occasion Wollescote stormed to victory! Earning an incredible 120 Points. This shows that the hard work and dedication of the swimming squad has paid off massively. Mr Brookes and Mrs Petchey are so proud of the group for all their efforts in the squad and gala.
On Thursday 29th March, Wollescote gymnasts went to compete at the Dudley Schools Gymnastics Competition. In recent years, Wollescote have only placed near to the bottom. Except for this year, the children ranging from years 1-5 approached the competition prepared, motivated and willing to improve from recent years. Having received the results this week, I am thrilled with their positions. Huge well done from Mrs Petchey to all the gymnasts that represented Wollescote to the best of their ability. I am very proud of your achievements.
