Hockey Team photos 2019
Other sporting opportunities
There are often opportunities throughout the year for pupils to take part in other sporting activities. For example our Quicksticks hockey team 2019 reached the County finals on Friday 29th March, see the photos attached above. For the last few years we enter a Year 4 team into the Epsom & Ewell Dance Festival.
COUNTY RACKET PACK FESTIVAL
This Tuesday 3rd March, a team of six year 6 pupils attended the County Racket Pack Festival at the Guildford Spectrum. This was a non-competitive event which involved various racket-challenges and was great fun. Our team showed good skills and had the best score at the Keepy-uppy station! Well done to Adam, Aidan, Louis, Lucas, Nina & Piyara, you were a pleasure to take along.
County finals Quicksticks Hockey Tournament
Following the children’s success at the Quicksticks Hockey tournament last week, they qualify to participate in the County Finals at Surbiton Hockey Club, Sugden Rd, Thames Ditton KT7 0AE on Thursday 12th March. Good luck to Tristan M, Noah B, Steven E, Lola F, Rose U & Freya B.
This Thursday 28th February 2020, our two teams of volunteer hockey players braved the cold for the District Tournament at Epsom Hockey Club. Both teams played 6 matches of only 7 minutes each against other schools. Our Team One won 5 and drew 1 which put them through to the semi-finals and Team Two won 1, lost 1 and drew 4 (0-0) which unfortunately meant they didn't progress as it came down to goal-difference. They played so well together considering this was their first outing as a team and I was really impressed with their hockey-prowess! Well done to Lucas, Cara, Samuel, Luziana, Artie, Hanna & Oliver, I look forward to seeing you all play next year. So, Team One faced Cuddington Croft's B-Team in the semi-finals and beat them 2-0 quite comfortably. This meant they met Cuddington Croft's A-Team in the finals which was a repeat of last year! Wonderful teamwork and good sportsmanship were shown by our superb players (unfortunately, the same can't be said for all of the opposition!) and it was lovely to watch them win that 2-0 too! This means they will represent Epsom & Ewell borough in the County FInals on March 12th. Many congratulations to Lola, Freya, Rose, Tristan, Steven & Noah and thank you to all our supporters who must have been absolutely frozen!
Eighteen children were offered the opportunity to take part in a badmington festival on Wednesday 12th February at the De Stafford Sports Centre in Caterham. The following children took part: Zain A, Lucas B, Kayleigh C, Rohan G, Ayaan J, Laila F, Louis P, William U, Ela A, Oliver B, Aiden C, Zarah D, Lilia H, Hafsa K, Lewis M, Zaky M, Dillan V and Emma W.
DISTRICT QUICKSTICKS HOCKEY TOURNAMENT 2020
On Thursday 27th February 2020 we will be competing in the above competition (at Epsom Hockey Club, Old Schools Lane from 4.00-6.00pm) and it is time to organise our team(s)! If your child is a keen player and would be interested in representing the school at the tournament, please email Louise Wilson by Friday 7th February. I am hoping to field two teams so am looking to fill about 16 places; I'll open this up to Year 4 after the 7th if necessary. Parents will need to provide transport and the players will all need shin pads and a mouth-guard. I can provide a hockey stick if they don't own one. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Louise Wilson email@example.com
EPSOM & EWELL DANCE FESTIVAL AUDITIONS FOR YEAR 4
As is customary, our Year 4's will be representing Wallace Fields at the annual Dance Festival , held at the Epsom Playhouse each June. Lauren Johnson, who runs the after-school Hip-Hop Club, will be our dance teacher for this event and would like to invite all interested children to come along to audition. All abilities are welcome. To make it easier, we will hold two auditions; the first will be for 4D on Monday 2nd March 2020 and then for 4G on Monday 9th March 2020, both from 12.30 to 1pm where they will be taken through a simple routine to assess their rhythm, coordination, focus etc. The children will be sent for lunch at 12.10pm and will then come directly to meet myself and Lauren in the Music Room. They will not need a change of clothes but may want to put their trainers on for stability. Please feel free to ask any questions and more information regarding the Dance Festival will be provided to the successful 12 dancers once they have been established. Best wishes, Mrs Wilson. firstname.lastname@example.org
