Massive congratulations to our Y3/4 Swimming Squad who won the County Finals as part of the Lincolnshire School Games and to our Y5/6 Squad who came an excellent third in their age group!
Our Y3/4s pushed St Andrew’s, Woodhall Spa into second place with Malcolm Sergent School, Stamford in third. Our Y5/6s were third behind the much larger schools of Horncastle Primary in second and winners Westgate Academy of Lincoln.
We love swimming at St. Michael’s as it is great for health and fitness, builds confidence, raises self-esteem and is a valuable life-long skill. Becoming County Champions is the icing on the cake!
Well done to all!
A big WELL DONE to our Year 4 Basketball Squad who entered a four school / twelve team tournament at Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College and emerged victorious finishing first and second.
Over 550 children took part in the Louth Schools X-Country Competition held at MDTC playing field. Despite the wet weather, all the children had a fantastic time with some great performances by St Michael’s children.
Well done to Team Y3/4 Girls who won their event and to the Y3/4 Boys & Y5/6 Boys who were Runners-Up in theirs. Special mentions for Max in Y6 who won Gold in the boys race, Lyla a Gold for winning hers and Effie (3rd), Olivia, Katie, William, Evie and Gemma all highly placed with Top Ten finishes.
A super effort from all!
It has been a ‘Golden Summer’ for Team GB at the Rio Olympics & Paralympics with a record number of medals won. We think PE and physical development is a really important part of school, not only for the health benefits, but for raising self esteem, developing teamwork, building confidence and a whole range of life skills which children can use out of school and into the future.
We are delighted to announce that, for the third year running, we have been awarded the ‘School Games Gold Award’ for primary sport! This is a hard award to achieve and not all schools will do so. It reflects pupil participation more than our sporting successes and is awarded, for example, for the hours of PE we spend doing gym, dance, skills, swimming, invasion & net/wall games and the numbers who attend after school clubs across the year. It also includes our participation in inter-school sports events (as reflected in our expanding trophy cabinets) and how our older children support younger ones, like on infant sports day.
So well done to everyone in helping us achieve gold again!
Y3/4 Scatterball (best described as Rounders with a twist!)
Mr Hodgekins took twenty very excited children to KEVIGS to play in the Louth Scatterball Tournament for Y3/4. They all had a great time with lots of hitting, running, throwing and catching to finally finish Runners-Up!
Well done to all who took part.
No, this is not another debate on whether the Russian linesman got it right to decide if Geoff Hurst’s 2nd goal in the 1966 World Cup Final really did cross the line or not, rather it was the hot topic of debate by the school football team on their return from the Louth Schools Soccer Tournament at Cordeaux!
With our B Team having finished a spirited 3rd in their group,
our A Team, victors of the ‘Red League’, faced Market Rasen Primary School in the competition final. A 2-1 win became a 2-2 draw when the keeper’s save (by tipping the ball over the bar) was given as a goal, controversial as there was no bar! So to penalties and, in classic tradition, defeat!
No moaning guys, the referee’s decision is final!
Well done to everyone who took part in a great event.
The Lincolnshire School Games is a chance for all schools in Lincolnshire to build on their existing work and boost school sport by creating a year-round competition calendar for all students. We had two teams qualify for the Summer Event representing the Wolds Sports Partnership alongside Lacey Gardens at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre for hockey and ‘Inclusive Tri-Golf’.
The children had a fantastic day with our hockey team winning the ‘Sporting Values’ plaque for the way they played the game and the golfers winning silver medals, for finishing second out of six teams, with Lacey Gardens coming top!
Well done to all!
Overcast skies and damp under foot conditions didn’t bode well for the annual Primary Schools Cricket Festival held at Louth Cricket Club at The Pavilion London Road. However, the weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of 200 primary age children from around the area. All our teams managed at least one victory, with our Under 10 side winning their group unbeaten only to lose to Greenwich House School in a repeat of last year’s final!
Well played to all who took part with all the games played in an excellent spirit.
Having won the local area finals, our Junior Swimming Squad got the chance to compete at the Meres Leisure Centre Grantham in the County Gala, part of the 2016 Lincolnshire School Games Winter Festival.
Swimming against the best schools from across the County, the children had a great time, met an Olympic badminton player and received t-shirts to show they were representing the Wolds School Sports Partnership!
All our children swam well with the highlight being our Y3/4 Squad who achieved a fantastic 1st place and the title ‘Best in Lincolnshire’!
The final results were:
1st St. Michael’s 118 points, 2nd St. Andrews 89 points & 3rd Parish Church
We need a bigger trophy cabinet!
Congratulations to our High 5 Netball Team who emerged victorious from the Wolds School Sports Partnership Netball Tournament held at Cordeaux Academy. Competing against Lacey Gardens, Fulstow, Grimoldby, North Cockerington and Greenwich House, the team achieved a perfect record of played six won six, scoring 39 goals and conceding only 2!
As winners of our area event the team now will represent the Wolds at the Lincolnshire Winter Games in Grantham.
