What has been happening in PE and School Sport this year?
Do you know what Disc Golf is? Have you ever played Disc Golf? Two teams from Year 4 and Year 6 at our school now have and could tell you ALL about this new sport! On Friday 22nd June, they spent the afternoon at Plympton Academy learning how to throw frisbees accurately towards disc golf targets. They had a wonderful time and all improved their scores and accuracy as the event progressed. They have been playing Disc Golf at Plymouth Argyle Multi-sports club this term.
At the end of last term, a group of Year 3 children represented the school at a Tri-Golf Festival. This was our first time at entering this festival and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves at the same time as improving their golf skills too. Well done everyone.
On Monday 19th March, twelve children from year 3 attended the Change 4 Life Festival at Marjons. They undertook fun activities based around being active, eating healthily and enjoying problem-solving together. Their biggest challenges were on the climbing wall and using the bicycle-powered smoothie blender! The children all enjoyed a fantastic day out.
On the 18th of January members of the school netball club represented the school at the Citywide High 5 Netball Tournament. In our group we played 5 schools, winning 3 of our games convincingly, having a draw in one, and a small loss in the other. Each member of the team played fantastically and they all scored at least one goal each. They represented the school excellently and should be very proud of themselves. Well done all.
Year 5/6 Girls footballing success!
EVPS girls football team played in the first round of the Plymouth Football Association Knock-Out cup on Tuesday 16th January. The opposition was Knowle Primary school and the game was played on the Eggbuckland 3G pitch. Despite freezing cold conditions and occasional showers the game was action-packed and played at a high tempo. Early on both teams looked a little bit shaky (maybe it was the cold!) but once the teams had settled down there were some good passages of play. EVPS scored first with a well worked team goal finished by Leona. At half time the team fuelled up on oranges, prepared by Miss Prynne. Following half time and a couple of substitutions, EVPS went on to extend their lead with a wonderful strike from Clarissa. EVPS defence was tested with some sustained pressure from Knowle Primary who forced a couple of great saves from Sydney Drake. Eventually, Knowle Primary had a taste of success scoring a goal minutes before the end. However, it was too little too late and EVPS claimed the 2-1 victory and will progress to the next round of the cup! Well done girls, you were outstanding!
