SSP Tri-Golf Tournament, Highfields, 27/06/17
A massive well done to the year 5 and 6 pupils who took part in the SSP Tri-Golf tournament held at Highfields, Matlock. Everyone who took part played brilliantly and worked very well together as a team. The effort that was put in resulted in the pupils taking first place and winning gold!
13 holes were played in total, and the team never took more than three shots to hole the ball each time. In the thirteenth hole Joe even managed a hole in one!!
We won the tournament with just 30 points, second place went to Kniveton who were just 4 points ahead of us with 34 and third place was All Saints B with 36.
Everyone who took part had a great time, even the wet weather couldn't dampen our spirits!
A big thank you to the parents who helped transport pupils and supported the team all the way!
Tri Golf Cluster Tournament – 20/6/17
Well done to the year 5 and 6 pupils that took part in the golf tournament that was held at the Cricket Club on Tuesday 20th June. 10 pupils were able to take part this year; Alice Skingley, Sophie Carter, Grace Kirk, Henrietta Stock-Clarke, Abi Millward, Jamie Longyear, Kobie Jones, Edward Carroll, Oliver Colebourne and Thomas Mason.
After a slow start, failing to pot any balls in the first two holes the team got the hang of it and managed to win first place! With a total score of 118 points we won by 14 points! Second place was Parkside with 104 and third was Kniveton A with 72.
It was a lovely sunny day and everyone had a great time. By winning this competition we have earned a place in the SSP round which is being held in Matlock on Tuesday 27th June. Unfortunately for some of the year 6 pupils, this is a clash with their first transition day at QEGS so we will have to take a slightly different team.
Well done to everyone involved!
Regional High 5 Netball Tournament
A massive well done to our Year 6 Netball team this year who made it all the way to the 2017 regional competition held in Northampton on a scorching hot Sunday 18th June! Edward Carroll, Ella Bennett, Thomas Mason, Henry Morton, Henrietta Stock-Clarke, Bella Mills, Maddie Waring and Roisin Martin all went along with the much appreciated help of parents, family members, friends and Ms Clarke. A special thank you goes to Roisin and Maddie; due to a leg injury Maddie was unable to play which meant Roisin stepped in at the last minute to ensure the team still got to go and Maddie still went along to support!
The tournament was very closely fought. There were ten schools in total and we came sixth. Game 1 was against Bishop Lonsdale and we won 5-4. Game 2 we won 9-4 against Bagthorpe Primary. In game 3 we played Grantham Preparatory and lost 4-6. We then won our fourth game, 5-3 against Barnby Road Acadamy. Game 5 was very closely matched and we ended up drawing 3-3 against Horncastle Community Primary. Game 6 was against Chuter Ede Primary which we lost 4-7, then we won game 7 against St. Johns Primary. Game 8 was a tough game and we lost 3-11 against Oakwood Junior. Our last game was against Woodland View Primary and we lost this 6-7.
As you can see from our results, we played very hard throughout the tournament and stood our ground against some much bigger schools. The overall winners ended up being Woodland View Primary who we played lastly and only lost by one point against. Second was Bishop Lonsdale and third was Barnby Road Acadamy, both teams that we had beaten in our games.
Everyone at Osmaston is very proud of our netball teams success this year, well done!!!
Sainsbury’s School Games High Five County Netball Finals
Tuesday 16th May 2017
After winning the Cluster event and then the Partnership tournament, Osmaston CE Primary School qualified for the County Final, held at Derby Arena on the 16th May 2017, representing Rural Derbyshire. The standard of netball was extremely high, resulting in very close games that were played in a very good spirit, but competitively.
Osmaston CE faced St. Andrews first, winning comfortably 4-1, which settled a few nerves! The team continued to play superbly, winning the next three games against Glebe, Willington and Bishop Lonsdale.As a result, Osmaston faced Loscoe in the semi-final. This was a very close game, but Osmaston CE came through to take victory 1-0.
The final was against Oakwood School, last year’s champions. Osmaston CE went ahead 3-1, playing brilliantly. However, nerves kicked in, and Oakwood managed to level the score at 3-3. After a few tense minutes, Osmaston found that winning goal, to win the competition and be crowned Derbyshire County High 5 Champions 2017.
A huge well done to the team:
Henrietta Stock-Clarke (Captain)
Thank you also to Miss V.Clarke for taking the team and managing them on the day, and also to their coach and teacher, Mrs L Simpson-Allsop.
QEGS Football Tournament Year 5/6
Osmaston Primary CE School took part in the mixed football tournament at QEGS on the 27th April 2017, entering 4 teams of 7 children. All the teams played 4 matches each, with each game being 5 minutes long in the pool stages.
The games were very competitively played and with good spirit and sportsmanship. Teams B, C and D all played extremely well with some very close results but unfortunately narrowly missed getting through to the semi-finals. Team A won 3 of their pool games, so they did progress through to play Norbury in the Semi-Final. This was a very close game, resulting in a fantastic goal from Joe Stelfox which was enough to put the team through to the final against Parkside A.
This was a very close contested game, but Parkside did have most of the possession. However, Osmaston A defended courageously and it was on the very final kick of the game, that the goal came from Parkside to win the final.
Well done to all of the children who took part.
A huge well done to the other year groups that played in the other two tournaments, especially Y3/4 who won their event.
The results from all three competitions are as follows:
2nd St Oswald's A
3rd Osmaston B
1st Osmaston A
2nd Parkside B
1st Parkside A
2nd Osmaston A
3rd Norbury and Doveridge
Thank you to any parents that volunteered to help as Team Managers.
We were delighted to be presented with two awards for the second year running at the Derbyshire School's Sports Association; Primary Champion Small School and Primary Champion Overall School.
This means we were the top school for sport out of all the Primary Schools in Derby City and Derbyshire in 2015/16. It really is a tremendous achievement and we are very proud.
