Great First Match

Great First Match

Year 3.4

Well done to the Year 3/4 football team that tonight won 6-3 in their first match of the season against Randlay Primary School. The game was extremely tight in the first half but Grange Park took their chances and came in 3-0 up. Randlay started the 2nd half on fire and scored two quick goals but our boys showed great bouncebackability and scored another goal straight from kick off. The second half then continued to be end to end with both teams having chances. Well done boys, especially the boys making their debuts for the Grange Park football team and even more so to the boys that were playing in their first ever competitive match. Thank you Randlay Primary School for the game, its always nice to play our neighbours #TeamGP

Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight played a friendly match against a good Meadows Primary School team. The team lost 4-0 but put in another fantastic performance. Not only was this the first time some of the children had ever played for Grange Park, it was the first time they had ever played in a real competitive football match. Mr Thorpe commented on how proud of all the boys he was and that you would never of guessed this was their first match. Well done to our experienced football players that encouraged and helped their team mates along the way. Very proud of the team and we hope the children that played for the first ever time tonight enjoyed it.

Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight sailed through to the next stage of the County Shield after putting in three fantastic performances. The team got off to a flyer beating one of the favourites for the competition Coleham 3-0. We then won the next match against St John Baptist School 2-0 and then in the final game of our group, we won 3-0 against Longnor. It was lovely to hear comments from the parents and coaches of our opponents on how well the Grange Park team played. The passing and movement on show from Grange Park tonight was an absolute pleasure to watch. Keep up the good work and good luck in the next round #TeamGP

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that tonight played against a very strong Redhill Year 6 team. The girls played great as a team again and played some lovely passng football. We lost the game 3-0 but the girls gave their all and it was nice to see the girls still come off the pitch with big smiles on their faces. It has to be mentioned that Redhill had one extremely talented girl that plays for WBA academy and she scored all 3 of Redhill’s goals after winning the ball in the middle of the pitch and producing 3 fantastic solo goals. Our girls all commented on how good she was and this is the standard we are aiming for. Very proud of the performance from our girls tonight but even prouder of the way they handled defeat.

Well done girls

Grange Park student Brodie Miller attended the Shropshire and Hereford Golf Union Pee Wee tour which resulted in attendance at four out the five locations across July and August 16. The juniors (Under 8’s) play nine holes with the lowest score in each location contributing to the final result.

The results below are from the following Golf courses:-

Shifnal Golf Club – Score 51 – Overall 4th Place

Telford Golf Club – Score 63 – Overall 3rd Place

Oswestry Golf Club – Score 40 – Overall 2nd Place

Bridgnorth Golf Club Score 38 – Overall 1st Place

This culminated in Brodie finishing Joint 1st in the overall Pee Wee tour 2016. This is tremendous result for Brodie who continues to develop his golfing skills that I am sure will lead to further achievements, but also for the school to recognise that a pupil at Grange Park has worked incredibly hard during the summer to reach this pinnacle in his young golfing career.

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that today competed in the Crossbar Cup. This was the first time some of the girls had ever played in a competitive football match. Every single player was absolutely brilliant and couldn’t have given anymore than they did. Our girls played 4 matches back to back and drew two and narrowly lost two. This meant we had to play Ladygrove in a play off match and we showed great bouncebackability and determination to come from 1-0 down to be leading 2-1 with only a minute left. Unfortunately ladygrove got a freekick with only 5 seconds left and with the last kick of the game scored. This meant the game had to go to extra time. The girls really dug deep but unfortunately despite applying lots of pressure on our opponents, Ladygrove broke and scored to win the match. All the hard work the girls have put in at training really showed today with some fantastic performances. Well done girls.

Tri Golf County Finals

Well done to our 6 golfers that today represented Telford and Wrekin at the School County Finals. All 6 children played some outstanding golf throughout the afternoon and we knew it would take a brilliant performance from one of the nine other schools to beat us. In one putting challenge we scored an amazing 290 points. We narrowly missed out on winning by just 13 points with Grange Park scoring 927 and the winning Shropshire school scoring 940. 13 points might sound like a lot but that is just one shot in tri-golf. To demonstrate how amazing our score was, 3rd place scored 745, 182 points behind us. So proud of these 6 children, to go from never playing golf a couple of months ago to now finishing 2nd in the whole County.
