Boys football competition

Posted by Year 4 teacher on 07/10/2017

Our Year 6 team took part in the Chelmsford Sports Partnership football competition on Wednesday afternoon. In short matches, the team worked hard to attack where possible whilst still restricting their opponents. Samuel made a number of outstanding saves and Dylan showed great concentration in defence, seeing out any danger with great authority. Dawid’s work rate also caught the eye throughout. Perhaps they could teach the England team a thing or two in time for the World Cup!

At the end of the competition, we finished 15th.

Thank you to Mr Coldwell for accompanying the team and providing his expert coaching throughout the event.

Year 3-4 Cross Country

Posted by Year 4 teacher on 30/09/2017

On Thursday, our talented runners from Years 3 and 4 made the short walk to Chelmer Park for the first of their cross country events this year. There were some spectacular results, with the Year 4 girls producing 4 finishers inside the top 20 (Mana 4th, Grace 5th, Bella 16th, Julia 19th) and finishing in first place! The Year 4 boys also performed well with 2 finishers inside the top 30 (Teddy 19th, Oscar 27th) and a final team position of 3rd.

For Year 3, this was their first foray into junior cross country. Charlie (9th), Amber (24th) and Orlagh (29th) all finished inside the top 30 of their races, with the girls’ team finishing 5th overall and the boys 7th. I’m sure they’ll be keen to go again later in the term!

Well done to everyone for giving it their best efforts wherever they finished. Cross country can be a tough event, so it takes real commitment to see it through to the end.

Thank you to Mrs Coote and Mr Coldwell for accompanying the teams.

Yr 5-6 Cross Country

Posted by Year 4 teacher on 21/09/2017

New year, new cross country season but the same physical demands of our dedicated runners.

For Year 5, this year sees a step up in distance, now they have reached upper ley stage 2, but all showed great commitment to finish the course, battling through aches and pains picked up around the course.

For some of our Year 6 runners, this was the first time they had been presented with this challenge and opportunity, and quite a daunting distance with which to start. For others, this was the first time they had run this distance non-stop for quite a few months, so well done to everyone for showing the stickability to complete the course.

All our runners today were excellent role-models to others, showing the grit and perseverance necessary to complete difficult challenges. The result is not always the most important thing, but today’s efforts are hopefully one small step for those children to developing the resilient side of their character which will stand them in good stead later in life. A heartfelt well done to everyone who took part – we are very proud of you for seeing it through to the end (and hopefully you might want to do it again later in the year!)

Results now in: our highest-placed team were the year 5 girls, who finished 3rd. Well done girls!

Sports Day

Posted by Year 4 teacher on 08/07/2017

The sun shone, the children ran, the parents supported. Such was the story of the 2017 Beehive Sports Day, with children from all classes taking part in a sprinting race and a novelty race created in class. The event finished with the traditional KS2 relay. When Mr Sully had finished counting, the robins were declared this year’s winners.

Year 5 Basketball

Posted by Year 4 teacher on 20/06/2017

10 basketball players from Year 5 travelled to St John Payne tonight for the annual basketball competition. After a nervous start, confidence and performance levels increased throughout, notably the heroic rescue of a 5-5 draw from a 2-5 deficit and then a 3-1 victory over Mildmay. When the final results were collated, we finished in 7th position.

District Sports

Posted by Year 4 teacher on 20/06/2017

On Monday, six Year 6 athletes braved the heat at Melbourne Stadium to take part in the field events part of this year’s District Sports competition.

Friday saw the second day of competition in this year’s District Sports, with the track events taking place. The standard of this event is always the highest of all the competitions across Chelmsford, so it’s a great achievement to be selected for the team. Extra congratulations to Jake for his 3rd place in the long distance, and then to Meryem and Annabel, both of whom won their sprint races.

Overall, Beehive Lane finished 6th in their group.
