Queensway Athletics 8/06/18
The Key Stage 2 children attended the annual Queensway Athletics event last Friday. As ever the event was very well organised and run, by The Marches School staff and pupils. As ever the children were very well behaved and gave it their all in every event. We had a couple of individual sprint winners and stand-out distance, field event and relay performances. We eventually finished 3rd in the small schools category! Well done to all that attended.
Dodgeball School Games Level 2 Tournament 25/04/18
Well done to all of the year 5 children who went to the Level 2 dodgeball tournament at the Marches School yesterday. As it was a level 2, the competition was extremely tough! We unfortunately lost all of our first round matches against Ellesmere and the eventual winners, The Meadows. Our second round games were more evenly balanced but despite all the effort, we came third. The children had lots of fun and gained a lot of valuable experience.
06/03/18 - School Games Level 3 Tag Rugby - 3rd place on try difference
A big well done to all of the children who went to the School Games Tag Rugby Level 3 tournament today. The level 3 event consists of the best schools, from the various areas of Shropshire, competing against each other to find the overall winner.
In the first game against Telford & Wrekin Langley, we won convincingly 6 tries to 2. The second match vs South Shropshire, was a lot tougher and unfortunately we lost 8 tries to 4. The third game was an extremely tight match against Telford & Wrekin Burton Borough, but we came out on top 4 tries to 3. Our fourth game against Shrewsbury, despite us dominating the game for long periods Shrewsbury brought the score within 1 try, but we still won 5 tries to 4. We knew we had to win our final game against East Shropshire to be in with a chance to win the tournament. The team went out and gave absolutely everything they had and won 3 tries to 1!
As the results were announced we found that the top 3 teams all had the same amount of points! The top 3 teams all won 4 game each, and each team only lost one game! It went down to try difference.........we finished 3rd overall on try difference. The children gave everything they had and couldn't have worked any harder, they deserved to win the tournament and on another day they would have. It is an amazing achievement to get to level 3 and to come so close to winning! Well done!
08/02/18 - School games level 2 Hockey tournament
We went to Sir John Talbots school in Whitchurch to play in the level 2 hockey tournament yesterday . It was very cold and windy.
We played Longlands first and lost 4-0. Our second game was against Prees A and we lost 4-0 again! Our second game was against Woore (it wasn’t world war 3!) And we sadly lost 5-1.Ted scored our one and only goal!
Over all we came last, however we played against 3 big schools and we are very proud to have reached level 2 JJ.
This year we will train more and hopefully get better sticks so we will build a stronger team.
Thank you Mrs Twigg for taking us there and for your encourage!!!

08/02/18 - Year 3/4 tag rugby vs Oswestry School (Won 13-10)
A team of year 3&4 pupils went to play a friendly game of tag rugby at Oswestry School yesterday. Due to the bad weather the game was played on the astro-turf pitch. Although it was a little slippy when the rain came down, the children managed to stay on their feet long enough to record a 13-10 win! Even onlookers from Oswestry School commented on how well they played as a team. We will hopefully have many more sports fixtures between ourselves and Oswestry School for year 3/4 in the near future. Well done to all that went.
We look forward to hosting Oswestry School on Monday for the year 5/6 tag rugby game.

We played Morda in our last game which we won 5-2 and then we were waiting to see if we got to the semi final.

13/10/17 - Year 5/6 football team vs Oswestry School (away)
Well done to the year 5/6 football team, who went to Oswestry School on Monday afternoon. Here is the write up, written by one of the players: -
We started really well working together as a team with goals scored by Ethan H.T & Ollie in the first half we were winning 6-0 at half time.
We went into the second half in high spirits confident that we would win. With another goal each from Ethan H.T and Ted took us to an 8-0 lead. But we got a bit too confident and Oswestry scored 2 goals back.
We all felt a little disappointed that we had conceded 2 goals but we kept our heads up and carried on battling to the end to secure an 8-2 victory.
Well done to all the players and thank you to Mr Wedley and all our parents for taking us and picking us up.
18/10/17 - Year 3/4 mixed football at the Marches School (2nd place)
Well done to the year 3 & 4 boys and girls who went to the Marches School on Wednesday to compete in the football tournament. I was particularly pleased with teamwork and cooperation skills they displayed on the day, they were a real credit to the school.
After losing the first game 3-0 to the eventual winners (Woodside), the team bounced back to win 3-0 against The Meadows. They then drew their final game against Our Lady's 1-1.
In the second group, the team won the first game against Trefonen 2-0. Then despite dominating both games, drew 0-0 with both Ellesmere and The Meadows. That meant that they finished a very respectable 2nd place.
