SPORT RELIEF 2020

On 12th March, all children at Heatlands took part in different sporting challenges to raise money for Sport Relief. It was great to see children dressed in a wide range of sports clothes, many showing how proud they were to represent different clubs in a range of different sports. Throughout the day children took part in the run, walk, skip or hop challenge, testing themselves to see how many times they could keep going around the Poors Field. Everyone also took part in a non stop football match which kicked off at 8am and finished at 6pm! All of the children should be proud of their efforts and the huge amount of money they were able to raise for Sport Relief.

 

INTER HOUSE DODGEBALL AND GIRLS FOOTBALL

 

The children across years 4, 5 & 6 took part in Inter House Dodgeball and Football competitions on Thursday 3rd Octobe. All the children enjoyed taking part and cheering on their team mates. It was brilliant to see the children manage their teams so that everyone had a fair opportunity to play and all saying what a fantastic morning they had playing either Dodgeball or Football. 
The winners were:
Dodgeball - Daniel
Girls Football - Sackville

INTER HOUSE CROSS COUNTRY

 

On Friday 2nd November, the key stage two cross country finals took place. All week leading up to this event children had raced against one another in year groups to try and qualify for the final. The qualifier races were fantastic to watch with children looking to improve on their own best performances, racing to try and improve themselves! While it is great to see so many fantastic runners at school competing to qualify it was just as pleasing to see the sense of achievement other children felt in doing their best or maintaining a constant running speed throughout their race. It is always great to have children acorss different year groups come to tell me how they have improved or how proud they are of themselves.
The finals saw children compete in one of four races; Lower Key Stage Two Girls, Lower Key Stage Two Boys, Upper Key Stage Two Girls and Upper Key Stage Two Boys. Children not taking part did all they could to support their house and friends by encouraging them throughout their run. All of the races were very competitive with a number of children in Year 3 or 5 pushing themselves and doing particularly well when competing against children a year older than them, including Millie in Year 5 who won her race! A number of children who have shown they are especially taleted at running longer distances were asked to run a little further than others taking part in their race. This provided them with more of a challenge and all who were asked to do this approached that challenge with great effort and sportsmanship.
All of the children who took part in the finals were able to gain points for their house team, the better their position the more points they would gain. Congratulations to Argent House on winning the team event again this year.
Full details of the podium positions for all four races are below:

Lower Key Stage Two Girls: 1st - Alys, 2nd - Rebecca, 3rd - Sydney
Lower Key Stage Two Boys: 1st - Benjamin, 2nd - Bobby, 3rd - Oli
Upper Key Stage Two Girls: 1st - Millie, 2nd - Catherine, 3rd - Ella
Upper Key Stage Two Boys: 1st - James, 2nd - Orlando, 3rd - Finley

INTER HOUSE DODGEBALL & GIRLS FOOTBALL

The children across years 4, 5 & 6 have had a very exciting morning participating in Inter House Dodgeball for the boys and Football for the girls. All the children participated with a brilliant sporting attitude with great skills on show, enthusiasm to cheer on their team mates and most of all enjoying themselves. It was brilliant to see the children manage their teams so that everyone had a fair opportunity to play and all saying what a fantastic morning they had playing either Dodgeball or Football. 
The winners were:

Dodgeball - Orpen
Girls Football - Argent

INTER HOUSE NETBALL AND FOOTBALL

The children across Key Stage 2 have had a lot of fun this week taking part in the Inter House Netball and Football competitions. All of the children took part with a sporting attitude with some great netball and football on show in the Upper and Lower competitions. It was fantastic to see the children take charge for organising their own teams, supporting one another throughout the games and enjoying being active. The winners this year were:

Lower Key Stage Two Netball: Firmins
Lower Key Stage Two Football: Orpen
Upper Key Stage Two Netball: Sackville
Upper Key Stage Two Football: Orpen

​Many thanks to Mr Thomas, our photographer for the Lower Key Stage Two competitions.

NETBALL SUPER LEAGUE FIXTURE

 
On 27th February, a number of children across Key Stage 2 attended a Netball Super League fixture at Essex University. This was a fantastic opportunity to watch professional Netball being played and for children to see the speed at which the game moves when played at this level. All of those that attended had a great time with many saying they were looking forward to coming to watch the Mavericks when they next play in Colchester.

BADMINTON TASTER DAY

 
Children across Years 1-6 had the opportunity to try out Badminton today. Julie Bradbury, a Commonwealth Games Gold medal winner, led sessions that allowed children the opportunity to develop a further understanding of the skills required to play this fun, energetic game. All of the children who took part had a great time with many saying they would be interested in playing Badminton in the future.

INTER-HOUSE CROSS COUNTRY

 
On Friday 3rd November, the key stage two cross country finals took place. All week leading up to this event children had raced against one another in year groups to try and qualify for the final. The qualifier races were fantastic to watch with children choosing their own goal for their run and giving all they could to achieve it. While it is great to see so many fantastic runners at school competing to qualify it was just as pleasing to see the sense of achievement other children felt in doing their best or maintaining a constant running speed throughout the entirety of their race. I was especially pleased when one child came to find me at lunchtime to tell me how delighted they were as now they could run the entire race without stopping, achieving their own personal target.
The finals saw children compete in one of four races; Lower Key Stage Two Girls, Lower Key Stage Two Boys, Upper Key Stage Two Girls and Upper Key Stage Two Boys. Children not taking part did all they could to support their house and friends by encouraging them throughout their run. All of the races were very competitive with a number of children ion Year 3 or 5 pushing themselves and doing particularly well when competing against children a year older than them, including Bobby in Year 3 and James in Year 5 who won their races! The Upper Key Stage Two race also saw Lucy take on more of a challenge after dominating previous races. She ran an additional 120m, catching most of those in her race to finish 2nd. Well done to Emily on her own strong race to stay ahead of Lucy and win.
All of the children who took part in the finals were able to gain points for their house team, the better their position the more points they would gain. Congratulations to Argent House on winning the team event this year.
Full details of the podium positions for all four races are below:

Lower Key Stage Two Girls: 1st - Millie, 2nd - Chloe, 3rd - Amelie
Lower Key Stage Two Boys: 1st - Bobby, 2nd - Romeo, 3rd - Ronie
Upper Key Stage Two Girls: 1st - Emily, 2nd - Lucy, 3rd - Catherine
Upper Key Stage Two Boys: 1st - James, 2nd - Keaton, 3rd - Owen

INTER-HOUSE DODGEBALL

 
On Wednesday 20th September, boys from Years 4, 5 and 6 (and some girls from Year 6) took part in the first Inter-House Dodgeball competition at Heathlands. The games that too place were manic, competitive and lots of fun for all of the children that took part. We were most impressed with the honesty of children who voluntarily came off the court once they had been hit by a ball; this sportsmanship, and not looking to win at all costs, is exactly what we like to see in the children that we teach and something that made us proud. Children have had very few lessons on Dodgeball and learnt a lot from playing these games, their excitement clear to see and so infectious the Year 3 classes came out to see what was going on! Well done to the winners of the competition, Orpen!

INTER-HOUSE GIRLS FOOTBALL

 
On Wednesday 20th September, the girls in Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in the first Inter-House Girls football competition. This is an event we have been trying to organise for the past couple of years and it was great to see all of the girls playing competitive matches against one another. Games were played with a friendly but determined attitude with some fantastic play from all of the houses taking part. Congratulations to Sackville, the eventual winners of the competition.
