Our tag rugby team took part in the borough’s tournament last week. We played three games, winning 5-3 against Ripple, 5-1 against Manor Longbridge and unfortunately losing 2-1 to George Carey. The team played very well and their hard work during our lunch time training sessions definitely paid off!
Two teams from Year 6 attended the borough’s netball competition this week. This was the first time St Teresa’s entered a netball competition. Year 6 have been learning the rules of netball in our PE lessons and they put those skills to great use at this competition. Our ‘A’ team played 4 games, winning 3 and drawing 1 against Beam. That meant we finished joint top of the group, however Beam went through to the finals as group winners due to their superior goal difference. Our ‘B’ team won 2 games, drew 1 and lost 1 and finished 2nd in their group also. What a great effort by both our teams in their first ever netball competition!
Badminton Racket Pack Festival
Pupils from Year 6 attended the borough’s Badminton Racket Pack Festival at Becontree Leisure Centre this week. We have been learning the different skills of badminton in our PE lessons and we got the opportunity to show off these skills at the festival.
Barking & Dagenham Post Cup
Our Year 6 football team played their second game of the season this week against Sydney Russell. We played very well and had numerous chances throughout the game and eventually, with 5 minutes remaining, Breanna struck the ball to the back of the net, after being set up by Joel. It was a great team performance and I was very proud of the effort and teamwork.
Year 4 & 5 Boys’ Ballerz League
Our Year 4 & 5 boys’ football team have been taking part in the Ballerz league this year. They have played three games so far, losing their first game 3-0 to William Bellamy but then bouncing back to win their last two games against Sydney Russell (1-0) and Ripple Primary (2-1). The boys have been working very hard in training and have improved so much over the last few months. Their communication, effort and teamwork skills were especially evident against Ripple in our latest game. Keep up the great work, boys!
