Year 3 & 4 Cross Country
On Thursday, 4th February children from Year 3 & 4 took part in a Cross Country race against other Chelmsford and surrounding area schools. It was a muddy race and the ground was cold. The turnout was the biggest this season. All the children ran well and completed the course. A special mention goes to a girl in year 3 who won a bronze medal, but a big thank you goes to all the St Pius X competitors. This was the last Cross Country race for Year 3 & 4 this season.
We look forward to next year and take this opportunity to thank all representatives from Year 3 & 4 who have taken part this season for their positive and determined attitude to do well.
Year 5 & 6 Cross Country
Thursday, 11th February was the last Cross Country race of the season. It was a cold and muddy event but the sun was out. Our Year 5 & 6 competitors challenged their determination to compete against each other. This positive mind-set was felt by our supporters – to whom I give my sincere thanks.
The attitude to the time changes, which meant that our younger runners could join the older field, was encouraging. I was distinctly heart warmed by this.
Despite the confusion over the time, I would like to thank our Year 5 team for participating in the spirit we at St Pius X like to foster.
I look forward to the new season starting in the Autumn term.
Football League Match
Boreham School v St Pius X
23rd February 2016
After 10 minutes of warming up, both schools were ready to play. Luckily we got to kick off first and straight away we were on the attack. However, it was saved, but we were quickly on the attack again. Number 6 played the ball to Number 7, who shot and scored! It was 1-0 to St Pius X. After a few minutes it was half time and by then it was 2-0 to St Pius X.
Eventually the game was back on and it was Boreham to kick off. Number 7 went straight in for the tackle and won the ball, and we were on the attack. A few minutes went by and it was 5-0 to St Pius X. However, Boreham went on to score two goals, but by then it was 6-2 to St Pius X. During the closing minutes of the match we had a corner. Number 6 took it and Number 4 jumped up and just got his head on it. It was 7-2 to St Pius X. Finally the whistle blew, the game had ended.
Well done to everyone who played and we hope to keep this winning streak up!
24th February 2016
Daniel from Mega Camps came to our school to lead master classes in Dodgeball. He spent 15-20 minutes with each class in both KS1 and KS2.
Daniel ran through the basic rules and split the children into groups to play against each other. We hope, through this taster session, that children will want to come along and be part of a new after school club beginning in the Summer term.
