12 children from Years 5 and 6 from Marshlands travelled to Parkside Primary School to take part in their annual inter-school orienteering competition. The children worked in pairs to navigate their way around the field and buildings aiming to complete the course quickly and accurately. Well done to all the children that took part as they all completed the course! :) A special mention to Year 5 boys Terrell and Derry who completed the course correctly in just under 13 minutes; a fantastic achievement!
Children from Year 4 travelled to Goole Academy to take part in an Inter-School Benchball Competition. The team faced 4 other local schools that included Boothferry, Kingsway, Hook and Parkside. The squad played a total of 8 games that each lasted 5 minutes. They got off to a winning start with a 5-4 victory over Boothferry. The team finished the competition with 4 wins, 3 loses and 1 draw and finished in 3rd place, a fantastic achievement! The children demonstrated great communication skills and played their hearts out in every game! Well done Year 4!
Indoor Football Plate Winners!
A massive well done to our 5 a-side Boys Indoor Football Team who were undefeated as they won the Plate Indoor Football Competition at Goole Academy. The school have not won this competition for 6 years! The team were interviewed by the Goole Times following their victory!
Well done to Ouse House for winning our Intra School Cross Country competition!
Plate Netball Tournament
Our Netball team took part in the Plate Netball tournament after school at Goole High School. Four other schools attended so the team took part in 3 matches which lasted for 10 minutes each. Marshlands got off to a flying start with a 1-0 victory over Boothferry. Our next match was against Reedness in which we drew. Our final match was against Parkside Primary where unfortunately we lost 2-0. The team put 100% effort into every game and were supportive of each other throughout. Their efforts were rewarded as they came 2nd in the tournament! A massive well done!
If you are interested in joining the Netball team, the club takes place after school on a Monday and is run by Miss Buttle.
Well done to all the children that took part in the Cross Country competition. All the children completed the course in good time and many were competing for those top places! A special mention for Tenesha who came third in the Year 3/4 girls race and now qualifies to go through to next round at Beverly.
An Olympic Visitor!
Olympic swimmer James Kirton, who competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics has been to visit our school and told us about his sporting journey. The children took part in a sponsored fitness circuit to raise money for school equipment.
