Year 5 and 6 Athletics Competition 2014

On Wednesday 2nd July some children from Year 5 and 6 took part in the annual SSPSSA Athletics competition at Woodbank Park. The children were all brilliant and as a school we ended up finishing 3rd out of approximately 9 schools. The Year 6 boys won their relay race with an amazingly lead! Well done to all the children who took part!

Netball team at Stockport Finals.

On Tuesday the 17th June, Norbury Hall’s Netball team played their socks off in the Stockport finals at Bramhall High School. They played in a tournament all morning and showed off their netball skills.  At the end of the morning we had won 4 matches, drew 1 match and lost 3 matches. Overall we finished 6th, however the the top 6 teams were all within points of each other.  Well done to everyone who played, especially to Pippa and Erin who stood in at the last minute.

A weedy problem

imageSurrounded by trees,  and shaded from the Sun, our school pond is suffering from a build up of Duckweed, Blanket Weed and Algae. Some of the children used Golden Time to help clear the growth that might otherwise threaten the wildlife within. The messy job had its rewards when by accident we lifted out a colourful newt, proving that weed was not a problem to some of the ponds inhabitant’s.

Stockport School Cup

On Monday 28th April, Norbury Reds and Yellows set off to Power League for a football tournament.

The Norbury Yellows won ALL of their matches and so were top of Group A.

The Norbury Reds won four of their matches and drew one, therefore they also came top in their group, Group B.

This was a fantastic result for both teams and I am very proud of each and every one of the boys for doing so well. However, this meant we had to play against each other in the final!

Both teams together. Brilliant teamwork and effort was shown by all.

Sadly, there could only be one winner and after a tense seven minutes the Norbury Yellows scored the first goal, which was soon followed by another. The result ended as 2-0 to the Yellows but both teams played brilliantly and just getting to the final was a fantastic achievement.

Now, the Norbury Yellows get the privilege of playing at Edgeley Park (Stockport County’s home pitch) on Wednesday  7th May against Alexandra Park Primary School. Wish us luck!
