Inter School Events
This term our boys team took part in their first tournament. It was great to see the children of Fair Furlong back competing after a long break due to COVID restrictions. The boys have been entered in to the South Bristol League and the Coronation Cup this year so keep an eye out for more matches!
During term 2 our year 3/4 children participated in their first event of the year in the SSP area Dodgeball tournament. For these children it was their first time representing our school and they lived up to are fantastic reputation for sportsmanship and respect to others.
The Year 6 Basketball competed in the South Bristol Area Tournament this term. Our children were fantastic throughout showing impeccable sportsmanship. This was their first tournament together and their hard work and commitment resulted a gold medal! We are extremely proud!
Sports Hall Athletics
This was our last event before the Christmas break. Our KS2 children had their first indoor athletics competition of the year. They had a fantastic mind-set competing in events they had never tried before and it was great to see them cheering on each other and even other school when they were not competing. Well done Fair Furlong!
Year 5/6 Boys Football
Our Year 5 and Year 6 team competed this term in the SSP tournament. The boys have shown a great level of improvement over the last couple of terms and their commitment is paying off. Out of their 16 games, they only lost two. It was also great this term to see some of the year 5 boys competing in the B team with some fantastic effort from all.
Year 5/6 Girls Football
Something that has been fantastic to be back on since COVID restrictions is girls football at Fair Furlong. Our new girls team competed for the first time this year in the local SSP tournament and took every element in their stride! They were fantastic as a team and did not loose one match – which they much enjoyed bragging to the boys about! It was also great to season many parents there supporting and a special mention to those that helped taking the girls there with Miss McArdle as the fixtures would not have happened without them!
This was the first time our children have competed in a cross-country even and included children from year 3 to year 6. Boys and girls teams both did extremely well and showed fantastic resilience throughout. It was also fantastic to see them not only supporting each other but also helping children from other school who were finding the conditions a challenge. To say we are proud is an understatement! A mention to Ashlee Neale who came in the top 15 out of 50 for the girls.
Year 5/6 Girls SSP Finals
Our year 5/6 girls’ team managed to reach the finals of the School Sports Partnership Area Finals this term. It has been fantastic to watch this team go from strength to strength. They have not only developed great resilience and teamwork but also an amazing sense of sportsmanship towards the opposing teams. Well done girls, we look forward to seeing you compete more in the South Bristol League.
Year 5 Hockey
This term our year 5 attended a day’s hockey tournament held by our local SSP. For all of our children this was the first time they had played hockey. They started by learning the basic skills and rules, then later in the day competed against schools from across the partnership.
Girls Netball League
Our girls have been working hard in our SSP netball tournament. We had a range of abilities competing and effective teamwork was definitely the theme. The girls did a great job at sharing out the positions and playing to their skillsets. Well done girls, you did us proud!
Year 5/6 Quadkid Athletics
Our year 5 and 6’s had a great time at this event and showed brilliant sportsmanship throughout. Manasse Ntwambe put on a show in the sprinting event and our all round athlete, Ashlee Neale, was brilliant in the throwing events. Well done to all the children involved, hopefully next year we will be able to do more athletics!
As well as our Year 5’s competing in the Dynamo League this term, our year 6 children participated in the Bristol South League. Again it was the first time for all of these children competing in cricket and they did a fantastic job at picking up the skills needed. The children must also been commended on their level of teamwork, they worked hard in communicating with each other at all times, ensuring their fielding was tight!
Dynamo's Cricket Festival
This term our Year 5's took part in the Dynamo's Cricket Festival. It was the first time for all of these children competing in cricket. With some last minute coaching from Miss McArdle in the bus the kids did a fantastic job in picking up the rules. They clearly have a natural talent in the sport as they managed to place 3rd!
Year 3/4 Bristol Primary Schools Tournament
This term it was our Year 3 and 4 teams turn to take to the football pitch. It was great to see so many of our lower Key Stage children be so enthusiastic to support Fair Furlong. Although some were a little nervous they soon found they stride. There was some fantastic performances from Thomas Aimes in goal and Louie Bedford in midfield. Next year some of these players will definitely be making it in to the first team!
