Tag Rugby Festival
After 5 weeks of Tag Rugby coaching in school for Years 5 and 6 by the Cornish Pirates, a team of 15 players were selected to represent the school in a Tag Rugby Tournament. With mass substitutions at half time to give all players a chance, the team played some fantastic Tag Rugby, losing only 1 of their 5 games. You could really see the improvement in all of the players following their coaching sessions. Well done to all and a big thank-you to the Cornish Pirates.
Athletics - Penwith and County Finals
A large team of 38 athletes traveled to Carn Brea to compete in the Penwith Athletics Championships. With some outstanding performances, Kit, Freddie, Billy and Kaci all made their respective sprint finals whilst Tama and Aria gained Silver medals in their distance races (1500m and 600m respectively).
Following on from this success, a small team of 10 athletes qualified for the County Finals. The children all far exceeded expectations and came back with a real medal haul. Kaci took a bronze in the 100m sprint and the long jump. Tama won bronze in the 1500m and a silver in the High Jump and Aria won a bronze in the 600m. Also placed in their age-groups were Kit (3rd in the vortex throw), Aria (3rd in speed bounce) and Freddie (2nd in High Jump). Unfortunately, medals were not awarded for these age group events.
Fantastic performances by everyone over both events and a real credit to Newlyn School.
Cornwall School Games - High 5
After winning their league and coming runners up overall in the Penwith High 5 League, the Newlyn School Team traveled to Bodmin to represent Penwith in the Cornwall School Games. Similar to a mini-Olympics there were hundreds of children representing their regions in a wide variety of sports. The children played well all day and finished third in their league, narrowly losing to Mousehole, their fellow Penwith qualifiers, for 5th and 6th place play-off. Well done everyone, you were amazing!!
Rounders - Penwith League
After a slow start to the league in week 1, where games had to be played indoors due to the bad weather, the team bounced back with true resilience and notched up two impressive victories against Nancledra and Heamoor. The team showed real fighting spirit and came together as one harmonious unit. Well done everyone!!
County Kwik Cricket Finals
After winning the Penwith Kwik Cricket Festival the girls team went on to compete against the best in Cornwall at the County Kwik Cricket Festival. The girls quickly realised that they needed to up their game as the competition was now much tougher. The girls gave some spirited performances with a mixture of solid victories and narrow defeats. They finished 3rd in their league and in 5th place overall, well done girls.
The school recently attended a Hockey festival, with all of our children playing their first games of Hockey. The children gave it their all, managing to win 1 game and drawing 4. Finishing 5th out of 8 teams.
Cycle Club - week 3
Well done to all - we made it to The Station House and back, a total of 7 miles. All participants are getting stronger. Now to plan next week's route! Best club ever!
Cycle Club Week 2
Well done to this fab bunch who cycled 5.7 miles this week. On only the 2nd week we saw much improvement. As we ride further and the weather warms up, the children will need a water bottle and maybe a small snack.
Summer 2019 - Cycle Club
Week 1 of the cycle club. The children were all great. We cycled across the prom, across Ross Bridge and through Wharfside Car Park and a short way along the cycle path towards Long Rock. We stopped for a couple of photographs before turning around and heading back to school. 3.6 miles this week. Well done to all.
Summer 2019 - Touch Rugby Tournament
Newlyn School entered a team in the Penwith Primary Touch Rugby League Festival, held at Hayle Rugby Club. The team was mainly made up of non rugby players with just three regulars. They all played brilliantly; pushing forward trying to score and chasing down the ball holders. I was so proud of them.
The initial games gained them entry into the Cup Competition which started in the afternoon. They found these games a bit more tricky but managed a sixth place in the end.
The touch rugby team have won entry into the next round to be held on 21st May, at the Redruth Rugby Ground.
Spring 2019 - High Five Success
The team, taking much needed refreshments, on their way to winning their league in the Penwith Schools High 5 league. Qualifying for the finals, they finished in second place and will go on to represent Penwith in the Cornwall School Games in June. Well done to all those involved.
