INTRA CLASS PLAYTIME COMPETITIONS

After a few weeks of competitions, every team has played each other at all the different activities – dance, dodgeball, football and basketball. Team SF continued their winning streak within the Y3/Y4 classes and remain clear winners.  However, after being at the bottom of the leaderboard throughout the competition, Team VD managed to have the highest score and be the overall winners in the Y6/Y5 classes –  they beat the previous winning team (Team CW) by just 1 point.

All the classes have now completed their 3rd round of competitions.  Although Team SF are still ahead in the Y3/Y4 league, the gap of 12 from round 2 has now closed to just 7.  In the Y5/Y6 competitions, Team CW is still in the lead, however, they have extended their 1 point lead and team VD ahve now overtaken Team KH. 

Cheerleading.

On Friday 9th March, 17 cheerleaders competed at Wickersley Comprehensive in the Rotherham Cheerleading Final. The girls were dressed as zombie school children and began their routine with their cheer chant, ‘We are Thornhill’s Walking Dead!’ This was followed by amazing stunts, jumps, tumbles, a pyramid involving all the athletes and a dance. Our routine was well received by the audience. Also a big thank you to all the parents who came to support us. We were really pleased to be the runners up as there were 8 squads competing. We are now through to the next round on March 20th representing Rotherham in the South Yorkshire School Games. Zombie Power!

 

Inter – class playtime sports

So all classes have now taken part in a second round of team competitions.  Although in the Y6/Y5 competitions Team CW are still in the lead, Team KH are creeping up behind them and are only 1 point behind.  However, in the Y4/Y3 competitions, Team SF are romping away with it, extending their 9 point lead to a 12 point lead.

Gymnastics.

On Thursday 8th February the Y3/4 and Y5/6 gymnastics squads competed in the Rotherham Gymnastics Final at Rotherham Leisure Centre. They participated in two events – a floor routine and the vault. There were a few wobbles on the way and the Y3/4 girls came 8th and the Y5/6 girls just missed out on continuing to the next round at the EIS by coming 2nd.

Hockey – South Yorkshire Finals

 

Two Y5/6 teams, from Thornhill, went to represent our school in the South Yorkshire hockey finals held in Doncaster.  Luckily, the afternoon stayed dry and all the children performed brilliantly, showing determination and skill throughout the matches against some very good sides.

Unfortunately for the girls, their efforts weren’t rewarded with qualification, despite an excellent display by our goalkeeper who was playing in full protective gear for the very first time.

As for the boys, qualification went down to the very last game.  In the four games they played, they didn’t concede a goal and remained undefeated, with our keeper only touching the ball twice.  However, only the one goal was scored in the last game to give them 3 draws and a victory which totaled 6 points.  The post, a couple of good saves and some poor finishing contributed to the lack of goals scored.

The boys hoped for a draw in the final match but unfortunately that wasn’t the case and we lost out by a single point.  Congratulations to the teams that did qualify and good luck.

The stand out performer for the girls was goalkeeper Nitasha and for the boys it was Rizwan otherwise known as ‘the wall’ as nothing got past him.
