After a hard week of SAT's, Year 6 children from the Princes Risborough Liaison Group, took part in a Rounders Tournament. St John's were represented by each of the Y6 classes and all year 6 children were involved.
All our children played well and showed great teamwork in supporting each other. We are delighted to report that, out of the 12 teams participating, Miss Moulder's Y6 class achieved first place, Mrs Rodbourne's Y6 were third and Mrs Thomas's Y6 class were fourth. A great result for St John's!
On Tuesday 9th May some of our Year 5 children participated in a Tennis tournament at Princes Risborough Upper School. The children all played with great enthusiasm, finishing in second place overall. Thank you to all those who provided transport for the children and came along to show their support. Huge well done to the children for being such great sportsmen and women, cheering on the other teams and celebrating the successes of others as well as their own!
On Wednesday 26th April, the Year 5/6 football team went to Longwick School to compete in a football match. Both teams played very well and it was a very hard fought battle! The set up consisted of 3 matches of 15 mins. In the first match, the final score was 1-1 with Jonny B scoring the goal for St. John’s. Unfortunately, in the 2nd match, the result wasn’t what we wanted. We lost 3-0 but we had some good chances with Syd P hitting the post. We won the 3rd match 2-0 with Charlie C-F setting up Jonny to score the first and it was Jonny again who poked the ball through the keeper’s legs following a goalmouth scramble. All in all, it was a successful match with everyone playing really well. A big thank you to Longwick School for being great hosts and a tough opposition. Thank you to Miss Moulder for helping us organise the match and to Cliff Kemp and Duncan Collet-Fenson for coaching us for the whole season so well.
