Year 5/6 Swimming Gala


On the 6th February 2018 there was a swimming gala held at Daventry Leisure Centre. 17 different schools went and it was really fun. We all swam in lots of different race such as the 25m butterfly, 25m freestyle, 25m backstroke and there were some relay races too.

It was very fun and everyone enjoyed it, so we all recommend it for KS1 and KS2. We will soon update you as to what place we came, we had an amazing day swimming! Most of us came 2nd or 3rd in our races and Zoe, Zara, Dennis, Aaron and Morgan did their races on their own. They all did really well!

Well done to Zara, Freya, Dennis, Jules, Evie, Lottie, Aaron, Morgan, Kyle, Toby, Ella, Felix, Zoe and  Billie.

On Monday 5th February 2018, Sywell competed in a cluster gymnastics competition. The competition lasted the whole day, with the Year 3/4 round being held first, followed by the Year 1/2 round and finishing with the Year 5/6 round. All of the rounds consisted of 6 competing schools. Children were judged in 3 areas: floor, body management and vault.

The children who represented our school worked really well; showing great determination and perseverance to complete their routines. They also showed great teamwork towards each other as well as positive sportsmanship towards the other schools competing.

Our Year 3/4 team finished in 5th place.

We entered an A and a B team into the Year 1/2 competition and both teams performed their routines well. Team B finished in 6th place and Team A finished in 2nd place.

Our Year 5/6 team finished in 5th place.

Cluster archery afternoon

On Wednesday 8th November, Sywell hosted a KS2 archery competition for the cluster. The other schools that attended were Overstone, Pitsford and The Bramptons. 

The afternoon consisted of the children playing various games which enabled them to practise their archery skills. The children worked in mixed groups so that they could work with different children from the cluster. All children worked with enthusiasm and supported each other throughout the activities. Well done to Morgan, Lottie, Evie and Finn for representing our school so well, once again, and thank you to the Sports Crew for helping to run the afternoon.
