Indoor Athletics - January 2018
On Wednesday 17th of January Albert Pye took part in the Year 6 Indoor Athletics Competition at Water Lane Sports Centre Lowestoft.
It was a boys and girls competition with all scores combined for a team total. The format was 6 individual events - standing long jump, standing triple jump, vertical jump, ball push , speed bounce, javelin and two team relays. Scores were given for places and then all the score added together for a team total.
Albert Pye had two individual winners, Daniel in the vertical and Edmund in the speed bounce. The Boys relay team also won. Although it’s fantastic for the individuals to win it’s really important for all your team to score points for overall victory.
Well done to all the schools as it was a really competitive competition this year. Red Oak finished 3rd, Blunderston 2nd and Albert Pye were crowned overall winners.
A fantastic team effort by everyone. The school is now off to the county finals in February.

On the 4th of October, Albert Pye took part in the U11 18 team Hockey tournament. In this competition, there were 2 groups: 5 B teams and 13 A teams which had 4 leagues.
The B team consisted of Amy, Daniel, Oliver, Aidan, Ellie, Nicole, Rosie and Edmund. The B team’s first match was against Phoenix. They won 4-0 with Edmund scoring 2 and Rosie and Nicole scoring the other 2. The B team played 4 games, winning 3 and losing 1 to Red Oak causing them to also be runners up.
The A team consisted of Charlotte, Libby (who was our team captain) Dean and Marcus.
The A team’s first match was against Corton. After a tense, close first game, the final score was 0-0. Albert Pye needed to change tactics in order to win the following games.
Albert Pye A had a rest after their first game then they played Woods Loke, who were the hardest team to play. Woods Loke had just beaten St Benets 4-0. At half time against Woods Loke, it was a pressed 0-0. In the last few minutes of the match, Libby was able to slip through Woods Loke’s defence and score a goal leaving a final score of 1-0. After playing Woods Loke, we played St Benets where we won 11-0. The goals came in quick succession with Marcus scoring 7, Dean scoring 2 and Libby also scoring 2. Next we got told that we were through to the quarter-finals by winning our group. We then played Elm Tree who we beat 2-0. This meant we were in the semi-finals against St Margarets, which we won by 3-0. In the finals, we played Woods Loke (yet again) and unfortunately lost 1-0. It was very tough and as a result, we claimed the position of runners up. Even though they didn’t win, Albert Pye still enjoyed every second.
