Below are the dates for next years Grange Park Football Team trials. As always the trials are open to all the children in the year groups below and even if your child doesn’t make the squad, we will try our best to give them the opportunity to play a friendly match throughout the year. As our field won’t be ready for September, Telford Park School have very kindly offered for us to hold our trials inside their sports hall. A letter regarding the trials will be given out on our first day back on Monday 4th September.

Year 5/6 Girls Football Team Trials – Thursday 7th 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
Congratulations to Ava from Year 3 that last night signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers U10 Girls Regional Talent Club. Ava has worked so hard this season for both the Grange Park Primary School football team and AFC Telford United and fully deserves her reward of being to picked to play for such a big club. Ava only started playing football under a year ago and has improved massively in such a short time, it proves that hard work and dedication pays off. The fact she has been selected to play for an U10 team when she will only be U9 next season is amazing. Well done again Ava, we are all extremely proud of your achievement at #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight completed the double by winning the Meadows Cup. The boys had some of the toughest matches they’ve had all season tonight and had to come back from behind in two of the games to get points. This showed what great character the boys have to not give up despite going behind. The last match of the night was the decider that the boys had to win to secure the trophy. Despite dominating the first half, the boys were 1-0 after our opponents scored on the break. It didn’t last long though with Grange Park scoring within 30 seconds of the restart. We continued where we left off but with our opposing goalkeeper being on great form it looked like the game was going to be a draw. With only 2 minutes left though we scored a great team goal and then it was all about stopping our opponents. In the last few seconds our opponents had a corner and threw everyone forward and it looked as though they had scored until Kai popped up out of nowhere to stab the ball off the line. This was a great achievement for our boys especially as our captain was missing tonight. The boys were determined to match the girls football teams result from last week. Well done again boys.
Well done to our Year 5/6 Football Team that today took part in the St Georges Inclusive Football Festival. The boys had a fantastic morning and put in some great performances. It was lovely to hear how encouring our boys were to each other and what great sports they were throughout the event. We scored some great goals, made some amazing saves, put in some brave tackles and passed the ball around lovely. All the children involved today were an absolute credit to their schools and the tournament was played in the right spirit, competitve but fun. Well done again boys #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that tonight retained the Meadows Cup in style winning 3 matches and drawing 1. The girls had some tough competition today and the warm conditions made it even harder. I think the girls will be the first to admit we didn’t play as well as we have been all season and struggled to get our passing style of play going. Its the mark of a great team to still win when not being at our best. The girls won their first match 3-0, drew their second match 0-0 and then won their last two games 4-0 and 5-0. Matches were stopped if the goal difference went to +5 in a game but we decided to take a few players off and continue to play the match, which then finished 6-1. When the girls started to pass and move as a team, they were an absolute pleasure to watch. Well done again girls.
