SPORTS REPORT JUNE 2017
Congratulations to all of our children for another year of sporting endeavour and success. As is tradition with the school we take as many teams as we can to all of the school games events hosted around the county to give as many as possible the opportunity to participate. School clubs continue to help develop the children's sporting progress and a big thank you to all of the teachers that have helped to make these clubs so successful. I would also like to thank all of the other members of staff both teaching and support, for their patience and understanding as PE disrupts their days and weeks. I would like to wish you all a sporty safe and fun summer and look forward to next year where we will strive to improve in all aspects of school sport. Mr K.
I would like to say a very big thank you to Lisa Angel for sponsoring our fantastic new running and games kits. The children, as you can see, look great and had lots of fun trying out the new kit in some football and netball matches at Lingwood school on Thursday afternoon. Mr K.
Children from years five and six represented Blofield at Norwich School, on Friday 10th March, in a small contest involving nine other schools from the area. Blofield competed well, and came third the the playoff round and sixth overall.
After the cancellation of a football competition last Friday, due to the snow, it was great to take a large group of children, from years five and six, to the U.E.A. for a Tag Rugby Tournament. The day consisted of a coaching session and a competition. Eight schools took part, split into several teams, with Blofield fielding three in the competition section. Despite the very chilly weather, all the children had a great time, everyone worked hard and competed well. One of our teams came second overall and are through to the county finals on Wednesday 1st February, at Norwich Rugby Club.
Spectators will be very welcome, from 10am.
Come along and support the children!
On Friday the 3rd March, ten boys from years five and six competed in the county finals of this competition.
They came a very good second - well done boys!
On Monday 25th January, children from Years Four, Five and Six took part in a swimming gala at Thorpe St. Andrew's High School.

Everyone did their best and we have three children through to the next round at the U.E.A.

On Monday 12th January, twenty children from years five and six visited the U.E.A. to take part in a Sports Hall Athletics event.
Each participant competed in two track and two field events, including: running, throwing, jumping and relays. All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and as always tried their best, coming first in the afternoon session and second overall. Well Done!
