Success for our Girls' Football Team!

A team of nine Year 5/6 girls represented the school at a football tournament this term, at the Len Forge Centre.

This was set up as a carousel of matches - each played for a block of 10 minutes one way. Our first game against Prince Avenue resulted in 0-0; following that we won every single match! (Barons Court: 4-0, Richmond: 2-0, Darlinghurst: 2-0, Leigh North Street: 3-0, Friars: 2-0, Hamstel: 1-0 and Our Lady of Lourdes: 2-1).

The girls displayed excellent sportsmanship and worked so effectively as a team, guiding and supporting regardless of what position they were playing. I was incredibly proud of the girls - we all had an amazing day and came back victorious!

Mrs Campbell

Kamilee (Y5): Today was joyful! I mostly played in goal and sometimes defence; I tried really hard and saved every shot.  I think all the girls played really well.

Abby A (Y5): Today was really fun and everyone did well. I played all over the pitch however I didn’t go in goal which is absolutely fine. The rest of the girls that I went with were really kind and supportive and I really enjoyed just playing football. Today was awesome and I’d love t do it again!

Dulcie (Y5): I think the day was fantastic and I had an amazing time representing the school.

Olivia P (Y6): Representing the school made me feel proud inside. The formations were brilliant and we all took turns in different positions; I am normally a midfielder but it was good to have a try at something new. We drew 0-0 the first match and then we played excellently-we didn’t lose a game and were playing with pride!

Ellie K (Y6): I enjoyed the football tournament because it was fun and fair. If the matches had been a bit longer, it would have been even more fun. It is a good game for girls to enjoy and this tournament gave us that opportunity. Despite not scoring any goals, we worked really well together and beat all of the other teams.

Rose D (Y6): I really enjoyed the girls’ football tournament because we worked hard together and had a chance to play a sport we like. I would absolutely love to do it again. Girls should always have a chance to do what they want to do and football is for both genders. I did manage to score a lot of goals but everyone did amazingly well.


KS1 Choir

Our KS1 Choir were excited to perform at the Infant Music Festival held at the Freight House this term. They sang beautifully, behaved impeccably and represented the school extremely well. All the songs were based around colours and included Yellow Submarine and Sing a Rainbow.

Football

I am extremely proud to report that, for the second time in three years, Edwards Hall Boys’ Football Team has once again become the ‘Champion of Champions’.

On Friday 22nd May, the boys travelled to Roots Hall (Southend United’s stadium) to play Sacred Heart Primary School. The boys were already undefeated champions, winning all five of their league games, but they were to face a team who were also league champions in their own right.

In an absolutely enthralling match, the boys went 2-0 up before being pegged back to 2-2. This meant one thing: extra time. With the prospect of a penalty shootout looming, the boys managed to work two excellent goals with only a few minutes remaining to win the match 4-2. The boys showed the skill, determination and never-give-up attitude that has seen them be so successful this year and, on behalf of the rest of the school, I would like to say how proud of them we all are as well as a massive congratulations!

Gardening Club

Gardening club has been busy again this year, from creating art using the outside space, to growing lots of veg to creating a new scarecrow.

The schools new friendship garden has been watered and weeded a number of occasions. Our willow dome is now looking good – it recovered from the really dry summer last year and has put on loads of growth. Lucia, one of our members entered a gardening competition and won the school £200 in gardening vouchers!

We’ve grown, carrots, beetroot, raspberries, strawberries, rhubarb and potatoes. It was really exciting to see how many potatoes we had grown and how huge some of the beetroot had got.  

For the summer fayre we made plant markers and sold plants donated by a local church.

Choir

Our school choirs practise on a Wednesday after school each week. This year they have taken part in a number of events including Young Voices at the O2 Arena, the SEESMA Music Festival at the Cliffs Pavilion, KS1 and KS2 Music Festivals at the Freight House and other local events.  Both choirs came together with our school orchestra and year 4 clarinet players at the end of term to show their families how hard they have been working and performed beautifully at our Summer Concert.
