Thursday 4th October
Skegness Grammar School

12 children took part in the district volleyball competition.  They were split into 3 teams of 4 with each team competing in of 4 mini-leagues for a place in the quarter finals.
Team 3 (Eva, Libby-May, Colby and Evie) were up against Toynton, Burgh 1 and Friskney 2. They improved with each game but were unable to pick up any wins and so were eliminated after the group stage.
Team 2 (Damian, Owen, Madi and Scarlet) were in a group with Burgh 4, Chapel 3 and Friskney 1. They began with 14 - 10 win against Friskney and followed this with a 20 - 4 win against Chapel and a 21 -4 win against Burgh. This put them top of their league and gave them a place in the quarter-finals.
Team 1 (Corey, Luke, Ollie and Emerson) were drawn with Burgh 3, Chapel 2 and St Andrew's 1. They began with a 20 - 8 win against St Andrew's, followed by a 22 - 10 win against Burgh and a 13 - 7 win against Chapel. They also topped their group and gained a place in the quarter-finals.

In the quarter-finals Richmond 1 defeated Burgh 1, whilst Richmond 2 beat St Andrew's 2.
The two Richmond teams were drawn against each other in the semi-finals, with Richmond 1 just edging through to the final.
The final was Richmond 1 against St Andrew's 1. We built up an early lead but St Andrew's then battled back to level the scores with a couple of minutes to go. We finished strongly to win out winners by 19 - 14. The team can now start training for the county finals which will be held next summer.

Boys Football

 Thursday 27th September
Wainfleet Road
Luke, Damian, Colby, Owen, Harry, Emerson, Corey and Ollie took part in the district rounds of the ESFA cup hoping to retain their title and progress to the county finals once again.

We got off to a winning start beating Woodhall St Andrew's by 2 goals to 0. Next up were Horncastle B, and this time we won by 5 goals to nil.
Our third match was against Burgh B and once again we ran out comfortable winners this time by 4 goals to 0.
In game 4 Burgh A took an early lead with a penalty and although we dominated the rest of the game we could not quite manage to get an equaliser.
That meant we had to hope Burgh dropped points against St Andrew's or Burgh B and that we then beat Horncastle A. The first part happened when St Andrew's held Burgh to a goalless draw so we knew a win against Horncastle would see us clinch top spot. We once again had the better of the game but nothing seemed to be going our way with shots hitting the crossbar and their goalkeeper making several saves. Finally the pressure told and we were awarded a penalty. Harry stepped up and scored. We then saw out the rest of the game to book our place in the county finals for the eighth year in a row.

  Points  Position
Richmond 12 1
Burgh 1 11 2
St Andrew's 8 3
Horncastle 1 6 4
Burgh 2 2 5
Horncastle 2 1 6

In game 2 Freya who had scored a hat trick in the first game switched to goalkeeper and made several great saves as we held Woodhall St Andrew's to a 0 - 0 draw.
In our third game we defeated Chapel by four goals to nil.
Game 4 saw us pick up another win this time 2 - 0 against Great Steeping.
Game 5 was our third in a row without a break and several players were carrying injuries but we battled hard against Friskney, coming from a goal down to draw level, before unfortunately letting in a second Friskney goal late in the game.

The children competed over several athletics track and field events including the long and triple jump, a target throw, javelin, obstacle and running events, relays and with our final event being team tug of war!

On Sunday 8th July Joshua, Grace B, Libby-Mai and Logan took part in the county finals of Goalball at the Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham.

The event began with an Olympic style opening ceremony in the athletics stadium

Before we moved over to the sports hall for our competition. We began with a draw against Tower Road and followed that up with a win against Malcolm Sargent. Our third game was a narrow defeat against Chestnut Street. We needed to win our final game against Lacey Gardens to make sure of finishing in the medal positions. We got off to a great start and built up a 3 - 0 lead before Lacey Gardens started to come back at us. We were still leading at the halfway point but as the game went on Lacey Gardens showed why they were about to be crowned as champions and a late surge took them to the win.
Overall we finished in 4th place.
After the competition had finished there was time to try out a few other activities like the obstacle course and archery.

Golden Ticket Trip

On the 3rd July five of our pupils were invited to go on a Golden Ticket Trip to Grantham. Corey was awarded his ticket for his efforts at the quicksticks hockey festival and Lexi was awarded her ticket at a multi-sports festival. The remaining recipients were chosen by us and after much thought we chose; Lily-Mai, Freya and Harry as all three have represented the school in an exemplary manner on many occasions.
We met up with Miss Powell and the Golden Ticket winners from Burgh and Friskney at Skegness Grammar School before heading over to Horncastle to pick up Horncastle and Woodhall Spa's winners.
Once we arrived at Grantham students had the opportunity to watch the opening ceremony for one of the biggest school athletics events in the country with over 2000 young people taking part. The group heard from David Ross and from World Record Holder Jonathan Edwards! After that students had a chance to soak up the atmosphere, take on a student scholar in Table Tennis, see if they could win a point and meet even more VIP, Team GB Athletes. Among those athletes were Colin Jackson, Marilyn Okoro, Sally Walton, Jenny Meadows and Olympic Gold Medal winner Mark Lewis-Francis.
In the afternoon we moved on to Grantham Bowl for a couple of games of bowling before heading back to school.

Athletics 21st June

We took a team of 23 athletes to Well Cricket Club, Alford to take part in the District Athletics competition. We should have had 24 children but one had to drop out at the very last minute. We were also without any of our Y5's who were on one of their secondary school visits, which meant some of our Y4's had to compete against Y5's.
There were 7 events; hurdles, sprint, long jump, triple jump, javelin, shot, discus and speed bounce. In each event points were awarded for beating a set standard rather than beating other competitors, so nobody had any idea how they were doing until the final scores were read out and Toynton All Saints were declared winners.

Rounders 20th June

Ben, Tyler M, Stuart,  Lily-Mai, Amaleigh,  Macey-Jayne, Kai-Stuart, Daisy and Lewis from Y6 took part in a rounders competition at Skegness Grammar School. We were unlucky to come up against Horncastle A in our first game. Their strong backstop / 1st base combination saw us struggle in the 1st innings. We did better in the second innings but could not pull back the deficit. In our second game we beat Horncastle B and in our third we beat Friskney. Meanwhile Horncastle B had surprisingly beat Horncastle A, meaning Richmond and Horncastle A were both on 2 wins and 1 defeat. The number of outs was used to determine the winners and Horncastle just edged the win.

Mini Tennis 19th June

Harry, Eden, Brooke and Sophie C travelled to Spilsby Tennis Club to take part in a tournament with 16 other teams. They were unlucky to miss out on a place in the quarter finals being edged out on points difference.

Tri Golf

On the 14th June 8 Year 4's and 2 Y3's took part in a trigolf tournament at Skegness Grammar School.
Playing such a hard, smooth and therefore very fast surface took some getting used to but everyone's games improved as the day went on and everyone enjoyed the event.

In the end we finished 3rd out of 9 teams.

Kwik Cricket

 On Wednesday 6th June our Y5 cricketers finished as runners up in their competition at Skegness Cricket Club after winning three of their 4 games. 
The next day the Y6's finished third in their tournament.

During the morning she worked with Y5 pupils before talking to all the KS2 pupils during service.
In the afternoon it was the turn of Y6 before Y3 and 4 pupils had the chance to attend an after school session.

Why I like doing sports:
I like doing sports because I have fun playing them and I enjoy going against other schools because in some sports you have to work with other schools with people you don’t know.

Boys County Football

Saturday 24th February saw the boys finally get to play in their county finals after the previous attempt to play had been postponed in January.
The squad of Luke, Corey, Owen, George, Emerson and Ollie from Y5 plus Jenson and Max from Y6 began their tournament with a 3 - 1 victory against St Thomas' of Boston.
In our next game we needed a late equaliser against Birchwood (Lincoln) to draw 2-2 and go into our last group game knowing a draw would be enough to see us into the semi-finals. We had to work really hard for another 2-2 draw against Malcolm Sargent Primary from Stamford who were reigning champions having beaten us in the final last year.
As runners up in our group we were drawn against the winners of the other group Spalding Parish.This was a repeat of last years semi-final. Parish scored first and yet again we had to fight back to draw level and force the game into extra-time. As the game went on we got stronger and were able to take the lead and then hold on for a place in the final.

In the final we were up against Bourne Westfield who had beaten Birchwood 3 - 0 in the other semi-final. With Ollie struggling after a bang on the head we had to change our starting lineup for the first half of the final. The game was very close and it looked like Bourne's extra height and strength would see them through. At halftime it was still 0-0 but we were now playing into the wind. By now, Ollie had recovered enough to retake his place and we began to cause them more and more problems. Midway through the second half we were able to create a clear chance and Max slotted the ball past their goalkeeper to give us the lead. The last few minutes seemed like they were never going to end but Luke was able to keep the ball out of our goal helped and we held on to become county champions for the first time since 2014.
We can now look forward to the Midlands Region finals on the 5th May at Nottingham University

In the play-off for 7th and 8th we were down to six fully fit players but battled on and were unfortunate to lose by the odd goal. 


Sam P, Benjamin and Grace B from Y6 together with Joshua from Y5 took part in a goalball competition at Skegness Grammar School on the 31st January.
