Year 5 County Cup

IMG_3221

Well done to our Year 5 girls football team that tonight qualified to next stage of the County Cup. The girls struggled to get their regular style of passing play going but they battled really well and won the first match 1-0 and the second match 2-0. It’s always a great sign when a team doesn’t play to the best of their ability but they still win. Well done again girls. The next round will be played after the Christmas break. Sorry I forgot to take a team picture tonight but I’ve found an old one which includes all the players. The year 6 child didn’t play tonight :-)

Joy to Watch

vs HLC

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that tonight won 7-0 against HLC. The girls played some unbelievable football again and the passing and movement of the whole team was a pleasure to watch. We were especially pleased with the girls that played in a different position to what they are used to playing and they did this without complaining and they did an amazing job. Keep up the hard work girls #TeamGP

County Cup

Well done to our Year 3/4 football team that tonight competed in round 1 of the County Cup. This was the first time our Year 3/4 football team have visited Shrewsbury for the County Cup this year but you wouldn’t of guessed with our boys putting in four fantastic displays. The boys won all four of their matches with scores of 2-0, 2-0, 4-0, 4-0. Hopefully we can take this form into the next round of the cup. Another fantastic team display from #TeamGP

NAK

Well done to our New Age Kurling team that this morning took part in the Telford & Wrekin competition at Madeley Academy. This was the first time our team had played the sport before and we all had a great time. We narrowly lost the first two matches 2-1 but recovered well to win our next two matches 2-1 and 3-0. The team improved after every game and rolled some fantastic stones. We finished 3rd in our group overall, just missing out on a place in the finals. Well done #TeamGP

Grange Park Primary School Sports Raffle

Grange Park Primary School Sports Raffle

De Gea 1

Exciting news – Mr James has recently contacted Manchester United FC and managed to get hold of a hand signed David De Gea Photo for Grange Park. We will be raffling off the signed photo and all funds raised from the raffle will go towards the school purchasing some tracksuit tops for our sports teams to wear. Once the raffle is complete and we know how much we have raised, we will contact Manchester United FC again and they will send out a certificate of authenticity, including a matching hologram.

This would make an amazing Christmas gift, not just for Manchester United fans but for any football fan in general. David De Gea is known as one of the best, if not the best, goalkeepers in the world right now.

Tickets are £1 each and you can purchase as many as you would like. The draw will take place on Friday 9th December in assembly. Tickets can be purchased from the school office or you can send the money in a labelled envelope with your child.

Cluster League

vs randlay

Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight won 9-2 against Randlay Primary School to stay top of the cluster league over the Christmas break. On a cold and slippy night the boys put in another great team display playing some lovely passing football especially in the second half. Our keeper was again on fine form to pull off the save of the match, plucking one out of the top corner towards the end of the game. Well done boys, keep up the top work #TeamGP

B Team

Well done to our Year 5/6 B team that tonight narrowly lost 2-1 to Coalbrookdale A team in the T&W plate competition. The boys played some absolutely stunning football tonight and were very unlucky to lose the match.

Coalbrookdale took a 2-0 lead early in the first half with both goals coming on the break but our boys never gave up and their dominance finally paid off with a great team goal just before half time.

We continued to dominate the second half but Coalbrookdales goalkeeper was on fine form and made one or two great saves. Our goalkeeper also had to make one outstanding save midway through the 2nd half from another breakaway attack by Coalbrookdale.

We couldn’t be any prouder of this group of players tonight, they did the school proud again #TeamGP

Year 3/4 Indoor Athletics

Year 3/4 Indoor Athletics

Well done to our Year 3/4 Indoor Athletics team that this morning competed in the Telford Park School cluster competition. Our Grange Park team recorded some absolutely amazing results, especially in the running events. All 16 members of our team took part in at least one track or field event. The overall competion results will hopefully be sent to Mr James tonight. Well done again to all of #TeamGP

Semi Final Bound

quarter final

Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight secured their place in the semi final of the Telford Cup beating Redhill 5-1. The boys were absolutely stunning in the first half and dominated play and came in at half time 4-0 up. If it wasn’t for some great defending by some of the Redhill players it could have been double. We continued to dominate the second half but struggled to get our shots on target. Another great performance from the boys though and now it’s time to get ready for the big semi final to be played after Christmas. Well done #TeamGP
