Ten Year 6 children attended an athletics event at Northgate High School on Wednesday 13th June. It was an event called Quad Kids. There were four events; vortex howler throw, standing long jump, 75m sprint and 600m. We took a brilliant bunch of Year 6s who trained hard and were determined to do their best and get some PBs. Very well done to these Year 6s as you were a pleasure to take to the event and put in some amazing performances.

High 5 Netball - 15.05.18

On Tuesday 15th May some of Year 5 went to a netball tournament at Ipswich School Sports Centre in Rushmere. We played the High 5 version where you rotate every half game so you all get to play every position.

We played against St Mary’s Ipswich, Kyson, Bawdsey and Morland. We lost against Bawdsey and Kyson but it was very close. The scores were Bawdsey 2: Grundisburgh 1 and Kyson 1: Grundisburgh 0.

Most of the other teams were Year 6. We all played very well as a team and we all really enjoyed it. Maddy won the Fair Play award.

Congratulations to all the team for playing so well, and a big thank you to the parents who gave lifts and came to support us.

U9 Tag Rugby - 10th May 2018

Ten children from Years 3 and 4 – all members of Tag Rugby Club – represented Grundisburgh in the U9s Tag Rugby Festival at Suffolk Inspire on 10th May.

The Festival was due to take place in March, during the rugby season, but was postponed due to bad weather. The children all enjoyed getting back on to the rugby pitch and were soon playing confidently as a team.

Our thanks to all the parents who gave lifts and came along to support and encourage the children, and congratulations to Oscar Brown for winning the Fair Play award.

Hollesley Cross Country

Well done to our amazing runners who came 3rd overall in the Hollesley Cross Country! An amazing achievement. It is the highest Grundisburgh has EVER come in a cross country run!

Harry P came 2nd in his race, Ottilie 3rd in hers, Abbi-Leigh 5th, Martha 7th and Bea 10th. Only the top 10 runners were given a specific placing but all of our runners contributed to our brilliant school 3rd place. We are so proud of you all!

A big thank you to Mrs Frohn for taking us, Alice Heather-Hayes and Sandy Page for training us and to all the parents who came to cheer us on. Yay! Well done all.

RHS Cross Country Running

We took part in the RHS Cross Country for the first time this year. It was a lovely sunny spring day and the children all enjoyed running around the beautiful surroundings. We had some excellent performances from the children. Ottilie came 1st in her race, Martha 3rd and Bea 7th. The races had between 100 and 200 children in them so this is very impressive from our girls!

The boys were equally impressive with mostly top third finishes.

All of the children had fantastic attitudes to their running and in helping support one another. It was lovely to see.

Thank you to Mrs Heather-Hayes, Mrs Page and Mrs Snowden who have all helped with our training. Thank you also to all the parents who helped to take us and look after us.
