Sports Reports

Puriton Year 5s at the YMCA - 11.06.18
On Monday 11th June, we made our way to the YMCA to complete a number of fun and challenging activities. We went climbing, bell-boating and completed a low ropes obstacle course. The aim of the day was for us to try some new activities, challenge ourselves and to step out of our comfort zones. We all tried extremely hard, showed great teamwork skills and resilience and we communicated effectively to complete tasks.

Step into Sport Days - 07 and 08.06.18
The aim of the Step into Sport days is to provide pupils with the opportunity to challenge themselves, develop and improve skills and to promote a healthy lifestyle and teamwork skills. Over the course of the two days our pupils experienced a range of activities, including: cricket, archery, tchoukball (an adapted version of handball), ultimate frisbee, boxercise and handball. Pupils increased in confidence, when faced with new challenges, showed resilience, communicated effectively, improved their skills and most importantly had fun. We spoke about the importance of an active lifestyle and hope that these days promote that not only in school but out of school as well. 


Football: Kingsmoor v Puriton - 19.04.18


Back row from L to R: Brayden, Morgan, Connor E, Connor C and Theo

Front row from L to R: Will, Alfie, Bobby and Albi

On Thursday 19th April, we played Kingsmoor in a football match. It was a hard fought contest against a good Kingsmoor side. We played up the hill in the first half and had to deal with a lot of pressure. Unfortunately, we couldn't hold out and Kingsmoor took an early lead. By half time, we were 3-2 down, after two well-executed goals from Will. In the second half, we had the slope and piled on the pressure, claiming the decisive goal that would bring the scores level. The game was played in good spirits and finished 3-3. Well done to all players. 

Player of the match:
This goes to Morgan for working extremely hard throughout the whole game. He was constantly looking for work, making tackles, setting up opportunities and putting pressure on their players. He also showed good sportsmanship, helping a Kingsmoor player to his feet, after tackling him fairly to the floor. Fantastic performance Morgan. 


Football: Woolvaington v Puriton - 21.03.18


Back row from L to R: Natalya, Darci, Ophelia, Theo, Morgan, Brayden, Connor C and Jake

Front row from L to R: Amber, Keelan, Alfie, Connor E, Albi and Bobby

On Wednesday 21st March, we took two teams to Woolavington School to play in some friendly football fixtures. We played four games in total, winning two and drawing the other two. We worked well as a team, scored some good goals and played some really good football. We passed the ball well, defended bravely and made it difficult for our opposition. Well played to all players. Once again, the children were a credit to the school.

Player of the match:
This goes to Bobby for working extremely hard with and without the ball, setting up some good opportunities and for showing good sportsmanship towards the other team. During his stint in goal, Bobby also pulled off some amazing saves and stopped a well-struck shot with his face. Well done Bobby.


Puriton v Nether Stowey Football Fixture - 20.02.18


Back row from L to R: Connor E, Brayden, Ardan, Will 

Front row from L to R: Alfie, Theo, Amber, Morgan, Connor C

On Tuesday 20th February, we made our way to Nether Stowey Primary School to play in a football match. The game was played in great spirit and we kept going to the very end but unfortunately, we lost the game 7-1. We took an early lead with an impressive finish from Theo but came undone against a well-organised Stowey team. They moved the ball well and made it difficult for us to get into the game. Next Wednesday, we welcome Nether Stowey to Puriton for a rematch and aim on improving that result. 


Man of the Match: Connor C - for working extremely hard going forward and for some fantastic tackling. 



Grass Track Cycling - 18th & 19th December

Over the last two days, pupils in Years 5 and 6 had the opportunity to develop their cycling skills in sessions led by a British Cycling coach. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the chance to complete a challenging course that was set up around our school grounds. The children were fantastic and worked really hard, even though it was quite chilly at times! Enjoy the photos!
