Year 5/6 Orton Hockey Tournament – Monday 12th November 2018

This afternoon we welcomed Orton St Johns Church School, Orton Wistow Primary School and Braybrook Primary School to our school for the annual Orton Hockey Tournament.

During the tournament we had 6 teams taking part so the competition was split into two groups of 3, which was then followed by semi finals and finals to decide on positions.

Within the group our A team managed to win 2-1 vs Braybrook B before drawing 0-0 with St Johns, while the B team won 4-0 against Braybrook A and then lost 2-0 to Orton Wistow.

This meant that both of our teams had qualified for the semi finals where they had to play against each other. In a very close match the B team came out on top and won the game 2-1.

As a result of the semi-finals Winyates A played against St Johns in the 3rd/4th place play off and narrowly lost 1-0 meaning that they finished in 4th place overall. The B team played against Orton Wistow in a rematch from their earlier encounter, however this time they managed to win the game with a sensational 5-0. Despite the scoreline this was a very tight final with the Winyates team defending hard and then finishing their chances on the counter attack.

Well done to all of the players you should be extremely proud of yourselves, and a further congratulations to our B team (who are all from Year 5) that are now the Orton Hockey Champions!

Year 5/6 Orton Tag Rugby Tournament – Monday 1st October 2018

Today we travelled to Ormiston Bushfield Academy to participate in the Year 5/6 Orton Tag Rugby Tournament. We took two teams along full of excited players that couldn’t wait to get started.

In the first round of matches both of our teams won their initial games with the A team beating Orton Wistow Primary School 3-1 and the B team beating Braybrook Primary School 4-2. Next up the A team played against Braybrook and managed to win 6-2, while the B team unfortunately lost to Orton St John’s Church School. Then it was time for both of our teams to play each other with the A team edging it by winning 5-1. Finally the B team narrowly lost to Orton Wistow, while the A team managed to clinch a final 6-4 win against St Johns.

This meant that the A team had the sensational record of going unbeaten throughout the entire tournament and were crowned Champions! Despite some results not going their way the B team should also be very proud of their efforts, as they played some excellent rugby and finished in 4th place.

Well done to all of the players you were a true credit to our school.

A New Year of Sport – Wednesday 5th September 2018

Last year we managed to achieve an incredible amount of success with all of our sports teams here at Winyates Primary School, and I cannot wait until we get started again this year. Further to this we enjoyed a host of success in the Peterborough and County Tournaments and I am sure that with the exceptional ability displayed by our children we will go on to achieve more success again this year.
