Tag Rugby at Twickenham

We were very lucky to be chosen, as part of the Worcester Warriers Tackling Numbers programme, to take a group of children to Twickenham to play tag rugby during the Premiership Final. Our children played during the half-time interval in front of a crowd of nearly 800000 people. Despite the hot day, and missing some players, we won our match 4:1. 

Congratulations to Hayden, Oliver, Alex, Charley Joe, Luke, Millie A and Georgia for making us very proud.

Tri Golf Tournament - Friday 9th June

Five Year 4 girls and five Year 4 boys went to the Lower Wick golf driving range to take part in a School Games tournament. They all tried really hard and had lots of fun. The girls were unlucky to come 6th, only 3 points behind the next team. The boys did well to come in 4th place.

Orienteering

On Friday 28th April we took 16 Year 5 pupils to an orienteering festival at Bishop Perowne. The event was part of the School Games tournaments. Pupils were put into teams of 4 and had to search the grounds of the High school for yellow and green cones. Under the cones were patterns which the children had to copy onto a map. When they had finished they had to translate the patterns into letters. Our pupils all managed to complete the task in the time allowed and had great fun, despite the rain at the beginning of the event. Well done to Ashton Lee, Blake, Casey, Chloe, Chloe, Chris, Emma, Erin, Eve, George, Hayden, Katie May, Lily, Mason, Oliver B and Souleima.

Swimming Gala

On Monday afternoon we attended a swimming gala at the new Perdiswell swimming pool. Pupils competed in front crawl, backstroke, butterfly and breast stroke races, individually and in relay teams. Everyone worked really hard and were very supportive of each other. We came 10th out of 12 but had a great time. Thank you very much to the parents who came and supported us.

Well done, Lottie, Molly, Tilly, Ashton-Lee, Casey, Chris, Eve, Jack, Katie May and Oliver B.

Football Match v Lyppard Grange Primary

Well done to our football team for their super victory over Lyppard last night. 5:2 to Cranham. 

Cranham started slowly and conceded an early goal but did not let this worry them. They soon came back with an equaliser and although Lyppard had many shots on goal, our goalie Caiden prevented them from scoring again. Just before half time we scored our second goal. The second half was dominated by Cranham with us scoring two more goals before Lyppard came back with a second. We then finished the match with a fifth goal. 10 boys took part in the match and all played their part with great defense as well as determined pushing towards the goal. Well done, everyone. 

The team were Harrison, Lewis, Caiden, Casey, Chris, Finley, Hayden,  Leo,  Riley G and Oliver S

Archery Arrows

We are very proud of the pupils who attended the recent School Games competition at Cherry Orchard Primary. Most of the pupils had not had any previous practice with archery but despite this, we beat 9 other schools to win the competition and to progress to the County Summer School Games competition in July. This is a great achievement as it is the first time Cranham has succeeded in this way. We will be representing Droitwich and Worcester City against children from other regions of Worcestershire. In preparation, we have purchased a set of archery equipment so we can practise and improve our skills ready for the next challenge.

Congratulations go to Lacey and Summer S from Year 3; George, Jack and Lewis from Year 4; Skyla, Riley H and Oliver M from Year 5.

Netball tournament at Royal Grammar School

Mrs Banks and Miss Banks took 8 enthusiastic Year 6's to the annual netball tournament at RGS on Thursday afternoon. We were very fortunate with the weather, which while blustery and cool, was at least fine. 

Our team, who have not had many matches yet this season, lost their first game to Redhill 3:1 but came back with a 3:0 victory against St Georges C of E. We then went on to beat Oasis 3:2 in a thrillingly close game. We were beaten 5:2 by RGS The Grange but took heart from the fact that several other schools failed to score against them at all. ( They were the eventual winners of our side of the draw). Finally we drew 1:1 against Broadheath. Overall we came 3rd in our part of the draw, just missing the semi-finals.

All our girls played really well, showing determination and courage (in face of minor injuries); as well as showing great team-work and support for each other. Well done, girls.

Thanks also to RGS for arranging the tournament and for the lovely refreshments.

Tag Rugby Tournament

The rugby tournament arranged by West Mercia Police, which was cancelled when rain flooded the KGV playing field earlier this week, has been re-arranged for Wednesday 24th May. We will have a couple more practices before a new team is chosen so keep on training everyone!
