Footy success Yr 5/6 team - in our two first matches of the season, we have beaten Southill and Atlantic with very convincing performances.
2021/2022 football Season:
The fixtures are back on after a long period of disruption. Our girls football team played Southill last week, and in a very closely fought contest drew 4-4. Credit to both schools, the effort and commitment both sides showed was excellent.
A tough match:
Our Yr 3/4 team played Wyke this week and narrowly lost 1-2. We were without several players due to illness but that didn't stop the boys putting 100% in.
Chickerell Primary Academy’s football aces are celebrating after registering a remarkable double triumph recently.
In the Nash Cup, held on the 22nd March 2019 for Year 5 and Year 6 children, they grew in confidence after a quiet start and soon began to stroke in the goals. Star striker Reuben scored over a dozen of them as, captained by George, they proceeded to defeat Radipole in the semi-final and Holy Trinity in the final.
This was swiftly followed by success in the St George’s Cup. Held on 1st May for Year 3 and year 4 children, a very disciplined performance by the team, ably captained by Jacob, saw them defeat St John’s in the final.
Headteacher Jody Harris said, ‘This is the first time the school has won both events and I am naturally proud of all the children. Sport is highly valued at Chickerell Primary Academy, with a strong emphasis on inclusivity and widespread provision.’
INDOOR 5 A SIDE- 24th January
Yr 5/6 boys took part in the local indoor 5 a side competition on the 24th January and were very successful. They did not lose a game during the whole tournament and only lost first place on goal difference. We are very proud of their achievements, and their behaviour was also exemplary.
