Well done to our Year 3/4 football team that played tonight. Like yesterday this was the first time this group of players had played together and also the first time some of the children had ever played in a football match. Both teams were fully committed and there were a few mistimed tackles but the game was played in the right spirit and the boys all had fun. Hopefully it won’t be too long until we can start to use the field to get some team training sessions going. Well done again boys.
Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight took on a strong Meadows Primary School team. This was the first time some of the boys had ever played for the school and it was certainly the first time this team of boys had all played together. The game was brilliant to watch and end to end throughout. The final score was 3-1 to our opponents but it could of easily been the other way round. The goalkeeping and defending from our boys was outstanding. Well done again boys
Great effort by our Year 5/6 football team tonight that competed in the Shropshire County Cup. The boys played 3 matches, winning 1, losing 1 and drawing the other. The boys dominated the first match but our opponents goalkeeper was on top form and pulled off 3 great saves. Then with the last kick of the game and our opponents first shot of the game they managed to sneak a long distance shot past us to win 1-0. The boys kept their heads up though and again dominated the next match to win. As the results had gone against us in the other games, this meant that we couldn’t qualify to the next stage. The last match was very close but our opponents were slightly stronger but our boys dug in deep and ground out a 0-0 draw. We only had 6 players tonight and in the last game you could really see the boys legs were tired but their determination got them the result they deserved. Well done boys, we are very proud of all you effort tonight.
We have set up a Grange Park Primary School Premier League Fantasy League again this year on the website: https://fantasy.premierleague.com/
This league is open to all students and staff at Grange Park and also a few special guests that are associated with the school.
Children might need help registering and selecting their teams with parent/carers but please register using the child’s name so we know who the team belongs to.
Once they have registered and selected their team they will need to enter the Grange Park private league. Select join private league and enter the code: 1538792-368485
There will be a trophy at the end of the season for the winner and also some prizes. Each student is only allowed to enter 1 team but obviously brothers and sisters can enter a team each.
The points will start from game week 4 (9th September) so please make sure you enter your team in the league before that game week.
Hopefully we will have lots enter again this year.
2015/2016 – Mr James

A letter regarding the trials will be given out on our first day back on Monday 4th September.

Well done to our Year 2/3 girls football team that tonight won their first ever match 7-1. The girls went 1-0 down early on in the match but showed what a great team they are to bounce back and win. Thank you to Cloudera that have sponsored our girls team with a brand new kit. They now look as great as they play #TeamGP
12 Mini Sports Days – Complete
120 Medals put on Ribbons – Complete
Sports Assembly Video 2017 – Complete
Well done to all the children in the 12 classes that have this week completed our Intra School Mini Sports Days. The top 3 boys/girls scorers from each class will be announced in our sports assembly on Wednesday 12th July and will receive their medals. I have been blown away with the effort and ability shown at these events and have been extremely proud of all the children taking part. All the scores were extremely close and in many cases the difference between 3rd and 4th place was only 1 point.
I would also like to thank all the KS2 children that came out to help run the stations and help with the scoring. Without their help and without their teachers allowing them out to help with our mini sports days we wouldn’t have been able to hold the events this year.
We hope the children have enjoyed their class Mini Sports Days and again we apologise for not being able to hold a traditional sports day this year.
Could all the children in the two reception classes please make sure they have their PE kits in school next Friday 14th July as they will be having their own little fun sports day.
Well done to our Year 5 Archery team that this afternoon took part in the Shropshire County Finals. The team had a great time and put in a fantastic performance again. The results from todays event will be sent to Mr James in the next few days.
Well done to our Year 3/4 football team that tonight won the Meadows Cup. This completes a clean sweep of all our teams winning the cup this year. What an amazing achievement this is, the whole school is extremely proud of every child that has taken part. The boys got off to a slow start tonight but towards the end of the tournament they were back to their best and playing some amazing football to beat a very strong team and tournament favourites Meadows Primary School 2-0.
The boys were unbeaten after playing 6 matches and only conceded 1 goal all night:
Grange Park 0 – 0 Short Wood
Grange Park 2 – 1 HLC
Grange Park 3 – 0 Randlay
Grange Park 0 – 0 John Fletcher
Grange Park 2 – 0 St Georges
Grange Park 2 – 0 Meadows
When all the scores were added up it was announced we had the same points as John Fletcher Primary School so it had to go to goal difference. Amazingly our goal difference was exactly the same so it was decided we would become joint winners with John Fletcher.
Well done again boys, it’s been a great season and an even better way to end it.
Unfortunately our school field won’t be ready for us to hold a Sports Day for 2017. Instead Mr James will be running an Intra School Multi Skills Competition. This will involve every child taking part in 6 fun activities with scores being recorded. The results will then be announced at the end of year sports assembly. Children will need to bring their school PE kits in on the dates below for their classes:
Friday 30th June
Tuesday 4th July
Wednesday 5th July
Friday 7th July
