Fantastic team work and deserved winners of the 2016-2017 Nottingham Forest/Notts Schools FA U10's 6-a-side shield
On 3rd May, the Archbishop Cranmer Y5 6-a-side football team played in the Nottingham Forest / Notts Schools FA Finals tournament, having qualified in a previous tournament on 19th April. In the first 3 games we won 2-0, 3-0 and 4-0 so that meant we got through to the final where we played Bramcote Hills Primary school. After our many chances we still did not score so… we went into penalties and thanks to the best keeper in the world, Matthew Wyatt, we won because of his 3 amazing saves!

Our first inter-school table tennis competition and what a great event it was! Team ABC won one match and lost the other but had lots of fun, gained lots of experience .. and are already practising for the next fixture in February!
Our sports leaders are already implementing their action plan, which they developed following their training. They aim to inspire and engage KS1 children in a range of planned sporting games and activities which they will lead at lunchtimes. What fabulous and inspiring sports leaders!
Sports Hall Athletics 2016 was a fun and enjoyable experience. Everyone loved participating in all the activities. I learnt how to do a standing long jump, Florrie learnt how to do a chest push, Jessica and Mya both learnt how to do a triple jump and Charlie and Alexander both learnt how to do a speed bounce, aswell as James.
We all found our sports challenging, but we all rose to the top and achieved our goals. There were about five relay races that everyone took part in. We did extremely well and we all cheered each other on!
