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.

Year 4 County Kwik Cricket Finals – Friday 6th July 2018

Today we walked to Orton Park Cricket Club to take part in the County Kwik Cricket Finals. The tournament was split into two groups of 4, followed by a final placing match.

Despite narrowly losing in our 3 group games the children played well with their bowling accuracy a real strength. In our final placing match the children rallied hard and managed to combine their excellent bowling with a renewed batting display, which meant that they managed to score an impressive 276 runs for 0 wickets.

This result meant that we managed to finish in an impressive 7th place in the entire County. Congratulations to all of the team.

Year 5/6 County Netball Finals – Thursday 5th July 2018

Our Year 5/6 netball team travelled to the County finals for the first time today, however with a vastly changed team from the children who qualified due to the secondary school move up days. This meant that some of our Year 5s were able to step up to a higher level to gain invaluable experience for the future.

The children took part in a 8 matches and managed to score lots of really well worked team goals despite the overall results not going too well for us. In the end our team managed to finish in 17th place, however they grew as a team across the games and cannot wait to come back next year for another crack at the competition!
