2017 End of Year Report
Total numbers attending clubs in KS2
KS2 has had a fantastic sporting year with over 75% of children in Year 3 – 6 taking part in sports clubs this year, of which a huge 62% have represented the school in a sporting event against other Dorking or Surrey schools.
Our sports have included Life Saving, Cross country and Lacrosse to name but a few and we have reached 6 Country Finals as well as coming first in Cross Country.
This year we have had new links with St John’s of Leatherhead, giving us a master class in Netball with a National coach, Dorking Tennis Club, who have coached Year 2 and 4 and the FA who have coached year 3 and 5.
2017 Sporting Achievements
The Spring term has been very busy for Sport, starting off with a master class at St John’s Leatherhead for the Year 5 and 6 Netball team. Children were lucky enough to be taught by a National coach and experienced playing 7 aside netball.
Having learnt so much from our master class, Year 6 were invited back to play a 7 aside netball tournament with schools as far afield as London. The girls progressed so well during the course of the afternoon and their determination and teamwork shone out.
Sportshall Athletics was the next major event in the calendar, with Year 5 and 6 children competing in both track and field events. Children showed amazing sportsmanship, encouraging each other as well and encouraging other schools. It was a joy to see. The amazing efforts paid off, gaining second place overall.
The Hockey tournament was held in St John’s on one of the coldest days of the year. Our mixed Year 5 and 6 team played consistently well, using counter attack to great effect. Once again, our amazing efforts gained us second place overall.
Cross country has been a great success this year so far. Don’t forget to come to the club every Wednesday as there are still 2 more competitions to come.
Another great success was with our year 4 gymnastics team. They learnt their routines exceptionally well and showed great control, gaining a second place overall.
St Paul's had 2 teams of 4 children from Year 5 and 6, who having been working hard to perfect their lifesaving skills over the past half term, competing in It's A Fish Out Of competition.
24 schools came from all over Surrey to compete.
The children did amazingly well, showing great skill and knowledge of Life Saving.
Their hard work paid off, with both teams tied 4th.
What a fantastic evening!
Congratulations to our year 5 and 6 sportshall athletics team who won the county championship in March 2015
