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.

Team building day

Today at Sywell, we have had a team-building day for the whole school. It's been a fun day for both children and staff and the children have had the opportunity to try new tasks and work with different people. Some of the tasks included making items of clothing out of newspaper, problem-solving activities, teaching others a new skill and a pumpkin hunt.

As part of our day, we welcomed Team Rubicon Skateboarding in to teach the children some skills on a skateboard. All of the children who took part really enjoyed the experience and it was great to see the progress that many of them made during their session. 

The team work shown by everyone has been fantastic as well as the perseverance they have shown to complete the activities. Well done all!

Year 5/6 5-a-side football competition

On Thursday 28th September, 8 children from Years 5 and 6 took part in a Daventry South cluster football competition at Moulton Secondary School. The team played 6 games in total; winning 1 game, drawing 3 games and losing 2 games. The Sywell team worked brilliantly together and kept encouraging each other throughout the matches.

The passes that the team put together were great to watch, as were the fantastic shots on goal made from Dennis and Caden as well as some masterclass saves from Finn, Morgan and Jaycob who all had a turn in goal.  The matches were of a high standard and all teams showed a high level of sportsmanship.

Sywell came 5th in the competition finishing with 17 points.

Well done once again to Alfie, Ceiran, Jules, Finn, Morgan, Caden, Jaycob and Dennis for representing our school so well and showing great teamwork!
