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.’
Area Success 2018-2019
We are now the proud winners of the Area Nash Cup in Yr 5 and 6 and the St Georges Cup in Year 4. A huge congratulations to the boys, and Mr Pask and Mr Broom for their hard work and commitment to the team.
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.
