Year 3/4 In House Match

Year 3/4 In House Match

Unfortunately our Year 3/4 football match against St Patrick’s Primary School today had to be cancelled. As our boys were so disappointed, we decided to hold our own in house football match.


The boys all had a fantastic time and the match finished 3-3, with the yellow team scoring a last minute equaliser after being 3-1 down with only 5 minutes left.


The game was very competitive throughout with both teams desperate to win. This was the 1st time lots of these children had ever played in a competitive football match and they were fantastic.


Mr Thorpe commented on how well all the boys had played.

SSSAA Awards Night

SSSAA Awards Night

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

KS2 Beat the Keeper

KS2 Beat the Keeper

Well done and thank you to all the children that took part in the ‘Beat the Keeper’ competition today.

Over 200 children took part which means Mr James had to face over 600 penalties this morning.

We have currently raised £45 but we have lots of children bringing in their 50p’s on Monday as they forgot today, but we still let them take part.

Every child scored at least one goal past Mr James 🙂

Mr James gave out over 200 lollipops and just under 100 packs of Haribo, but special mention to our 4 medal winners below:

Ashman – Year 3
Joshua Z – Year 4
Daniel – Year 5
Mr Lambie – Year 6 Teacher (Lucky)

Thank you again

Year 5/6 T&W Girls Cup

Year 5/6 T&W Girls Cup

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

KS2 Cross Country

KS2 Cross Country

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. To sign up for the Telford Junior Park run or for more information, please visit their site: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/telford-juniors/
