Tonight Grange Park Primary School received ‘The SSSAA Peter Cates Primary School Achievement Award’ for our successful girls football teams over the last two years.
As we’ve had over 40 girls represent a girls football team this year already, we had to pick 6 names out of a hat to attend the awards. The girls had a great night listening to Shrewsbury Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers legend Dave Edwards and Nic Coward from UK Athletics.
As expected, the girls were all superbly behaved but we might have 6 very tired children in school tomorrow. #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 3/4 girls football team that finished joint winners of the @TWSSP tournament with @RedhillPrimary this afternoon. The girls scored an impressive 27 goals and conceded 0. The final against Redhill finished 0-0 so both teams decided to share the trophy #TeamGP
Anything our U11’s can do, our U10’s can do as well. Well done to our U10 girls football team that tonight qualified to the @SSCFA2 County Cup final. The girls will play against the very good @BelvidereSchool at @shrewsweb Stadium later in the year #TeamGP
So proud of our Year 5 girls that today competed in the @TWSSP Year 5/6 football tournament. The girls showed great character to bounce back from a defeat in their first game to go undefeated in their next 5 matches. The girls won their quarter final 2-1 against St Peters Bratton before drawing 0-0 with the excellent @PriorsleeAcad in the semi final. The game went to a sudden death penalty shoot-out and unfortunately we lost 1-0. We then went on to win the 3rd/4th place game 1-0 #TeamGP
We have just received the details for this year’s KS2 Telford & Wrekin Cross Country Competition.
The cross country events are incredibly good fun with hundreds of children from across Telford & Wrekin coming together to take part in the run. All children are welcome to attend regardless of ability; in previous years we have had children finish in the top 10, the top 30 and even in the 100’s. The children strive to do better than they did the previous race, whether that is simply to run for the whole of the course or to stay with the hares who lead the way.
The events will take place on:
Wednesday 25th March – Telford Town Park
Wednesday 1st April – Chetwynd Deer Park, situated on B5062 between Edgmond and Newport
Wednesday 22nd April– Telford Town Park
If your child would like to take part in this event, please tell them to get a letter from Mr James or Miss Rance. This information will also be sent out on ParentPay but your child will need to let one of the above members of staff know if they want to take part.
House points will be awarded to every child that takes part in a race. The running order for the races is: Year 4 girls, Year 4 boys, Year 3 girls, Year 3 boys, Year 5 girls, Year 5 boys, Year 6 girls and then the Year 6 boys last. The first race (Year 4 girls) starts at 4.30pm and the last race finishes about 5.45pm.
Each child that takes part in the event will be given their own #TeamGP bib with their running number attached.
It has also been fantastic to see so many of our children attend the Telford Junior Park Run on Sunday mornings recently. It’s a free event that takes place at Telford Town Park every Sunday morning at 10am. It would be great to see even more #TeamGP children attend and this would be great practice for the cross country races.
