Our media team have created this report on the Tag Rugby tournament we competed in and finished 2nd in at Oasis Academy Hobmoor!
Boccia & Kurling (20/03/2018)
We entered two Boccia teams and two Kurling teams into a competition at Sutton Coldfield College on Tuesday 20th March and we had a great time there! All teams started strongly and won their first games but had mixed fortunes in the next round as our "A" Boccia and "B" Kurling teams won but our "B" Boccia and "A" Kurling teams were defeated. After playing a few matches each, we unfortunately didn't amass enough points to qualify for the semi finals but all of our teams played so well and had a great time. Well done Junaid, Azhar, Ibraheem, Izhaan, Halima, Rayhan, Ismail, Mikhail and Aleena!
Change 4 Life spring festival (19/03/2018)
Shuaib, Izhaan, Ibraheem, Sonia, Anamaria, Anisa, Rayeema, Ezaan and Seyf were all invited to participate in a Change 4 Life festival at Billesley Inddor Tennis centre. We had a great time there playing games such as Pirate Ships, Dragon Treasure, Target throws, Parachute Games, Skipping and Football! We can't wait to carry on our Change 4 Life after school club when we return from the Easter break and to attend the summer Change 4 Life festival as we had so much fun!
Year 5 & 6 Tennis (18/01/2018)
Our 3 tennis teams, each made up of two girls and two boys, took part in a tournament at Billesley Tennis Centre and played really well! All the teams played either 4 or 5 matches each with a varying amount of wins, draws and losses for each! The scores and results from each player were added to the other players from their team and the final standings in each of the groups was calculated but sadly for us none of them qualified for the semi-finals despite playing so well! Well done Myesha, Innaya, Hamza, Samir, Rayeema, Anum, Usman, Muhammad Ali, Rehan, Usman, Ramana and Nadia!
Year 5 & 6 Basketball (16/01/2018)
We were entered into a Basketball tournament at Starbank school and we took two teams to compete in it. Our "A" team made it through the group stage with an almost perfect record after they drew 4-4 with Al-Furqan, despite being 4-0 down at one stage, defeating St Bernadette's 4-2 and overcoming Parkfield by 2 points to 0! Our "B" team did well too, they drew their first game against Starbank 0-0, narrowly lost 2-0 to St Bernadette's and again drew with Parkfield 2-2 but unfortunately those results weren't enough to make it through to the semi-finals. As the "A" team topped their group they qualified for the semi-finals where they faced off against Al-Furqan. It was a tight game with our opponents taking the lead early on and although the game was end to end the score stayed the same for a while, until Samir produced a moment of magic and scored a great long range basket to level the scores. In the dying seconds of the game however, one of the Al-Furqan players scored another brilliant shot and won them the game. We moved on into the 3rd place play-off against Parkfield and it was once more a tight game with only 1 basket being scored. Unfortunately for us, it was Parkfield who scored it meaning we finished in 4th place overall! Well played Samir, Haroon, Asad, Umayma, Leyla and Sala, and also well done to our "B" team Muhammad Ali, Rayeema, Usman, Innaya, Musa and Anum!
Year 5 & 6 Dodgeball (11/01/2018)
In our first competition of the new year, we took 3 teams to represent us in Dodgeball at Nechells Wellbeing Centre. Each team played 3 matches in the group stage of the competition and our "A" and "C" teams both won one of their games and lost the other two in very close battles. Our "B" team fared better as they faced off against Audley, Greet and Waverley, managing to defeat them all and top the group with a 100% record! This meant they progressed into the semi-finals where they played against Marlborough in a tense meeting which we were able to dominate and took only a minute or so to get all of their players out! As we won the semi-final, we moved on into the final where we faced Audley and again it was an extremely close match which saw us take an early advantage as we got a couple of their players out, but they rallied and were able to level the game. The game swung a couple more times but unfortunately for us Audley were took the lead and were able to hang on and ran out winners. Samir, Aina, Anum, Hamza and Ibrahim took home the silver medals which is still something to be very proud of! Well done everybody!
Year 3 & 4 Gymnastics (5/12/2017)
We took two teams to represent our school in a Gymnastics competition on Tuesday 5th December. Our "A" team were chosen to perform their floor routines first and they executed them fantastically well and showed no signs of nerves or hesitation which helped them get an excellent score. Our "B" team performed their floor routines a little while after and matched the "A" team for execution! We then moved on to the vault, where the children had to run and jump onto a box as best as they could. Again, our "A" team went first, followed by the "B" team and once more all our children performed brilliantly! We had scored a strong number of points throughout the event and our "A" team were unlucky to finish in 4th place, just 5 points behind the school who finished in 3rd place and claimed the bronze medals! However, our "B" team scored enough points to top the table, meaning they were the overall winners and took home the gold medals! Well done all.
Year 3 & 4 Athletics (28/11/2017)
Similarly to the year 5 and 6 Athletics event a couple of weeks previously, we took a team of year 3 and 4 children to Starbank school to take part in an Athletics competition. We competed against various other schools in a range of track and field activities such as 4x1 relay, obstacle relay, vertical jump, javelin and speed bounce. Our boys team got off to a flying start in their first event, obstacle relay, as they won their heats and set the fastest time of anyone overall! The boys continued strongly on the track as they set the 3rd fastest time in the over and under relay, 2+2 relay and the hurdles but did even better in the field as in every event they finished in the top 3! We topped the javelin and chest push scores, were 2nd in the vertical jump, five strides and long jump and posted the 3rd highest score in the speed bounce. The girls performed just as well as the boys in their heats in the races, finishing 2nd in both the obstacle and 1+1 relay and coming in in 4th place in the 2+2 as well as the 4x1 relays! The scores from the girls were equally as impressive on the track events, ending in the top 5 in all of them. We got the highest score in the chest push, were 2nd in five strides, 3rd in javelin, 4th in long jump and 5th in speed bounce and vertical jump! All the scores posted throughout the event and added to each teams overall score and as we had done so well in all of the activities we finished in 2nd place overall and were awarded the silver medals! Well done all, you should be very proud of how you performed!
KS1 Multi-skills festival (24/11/2017)

They played in games, sports and activities such as Volcanoes v Craters, Cat and Mouse, gymnastics, football, stuck in the mud, parachute games and over and under amongst others! Everyone had a brilliant time and were sweating loads from working so hard all afternoon!
