Girls' Football Team Push On To Quarter Finals!

Yesterday, our year 5 & 6 girls' football squad travelled to King Edwin School, Edwinstowe to play in the 2nd round of the county cup as well as in a friendly. Upon arrival the girls were very impressed with their opposition, especially their trophy cabinet. With in moments of the county game starting King Edwin went ahead 1-0 from a corner and then showed their talent to put our girls under massive pressure for over 5mins. This was a new experience for our team but too their credit they absorbed the pressure and showed great courage. At half time they had pulled things back to 1-1. The second half started in a similar way to the first and whilst we had chances it was King Edwin who converted theirs to go ahead 3-1. At this point Mr Stevens thought the girls had played brilliantly but they were going to lose. Incredibly our girls stuck in there and showed a huge amount of maturity and to start playing some superb football. Their resilience quickly earned them 2 goals to tie the scores at 3-3. With just 3 minutes to go, Emma R got the ball out wide and passed in field to Freya who shot and scored!
Mr Stevens couldn't believe it and stated that it was the best come back he has ever seen in his life!
Well done girls your next match in the county cup competition will be a quarter final match against Bleasby Primary School.

In the friendly game our girls impressed the spectators with an 8-0 win. Ruby scored 3 and Libby got her first goal ever. Mr Burdes is still waiting to hear from the rest of this team about their epic performance and loved seeing their happy faces around school today. Well done team - with such great performances Mr Stevens is planning his ultimate team from such a talented squad for the next county games.

On Friday, 20 children from year 3&4 competed in heat 5 of the Rushcliffe Sports Hall Athletics Championship. Mrs Allsopp reported that she was very impressed with the behaviour and focus of our children. The largest crowd of spectators ever to assemble filled the sports hall and the noise was deafening. Once the children adjusted to the decibel level and overcame their nerves they performed exceptionally well. Strong running and great focus during the field events produced great team performances from the school's A & B teams, who have both qualified for the A final on 5th February. Letters about the final will be issued tomorrow and please see results from the heat below. Well done children!

Athletic Teams Hurricane and Tornado do well in Rushcliffe Heats

Last night 22 children from years 3&4 competed in the opening heat of this year's Rushcliffe Sports Hall Championship. It was a tough heat but Mr Burdes was really pleased with the children's efforts especially as the majority of the team were year 3 and up against fiercely competitive year 4s from some of the biggest schools in Rushcliffe. We took the decision to call the 'dark blue' team the Hurricanes and the 'light blue' team the Tornadoes to add a bit more of a sense of occasion to the heat and the children certainly ran like the wind.
1st Carnarvon A 30pts
2nd Lady Bay 55pts
3rd Edwalton A 61pts
4th Radcliffe Hurricanes 80pts
5th Radcliffe Tornadoes 88pts
6th Carnarvon B 104 pts
7th Edwalton B 113pts
8th Greythorn 119pts
9th Cropwell Bishop 152pts

Well done to everyone who competed and the next stage is a final against similar teams - details to follow after the heats have all taken place.

Bring on 2016!


Last year ended in school with multiple joyous moments. Not only were all the school's Christmas events wonderful but we had quite a bit to thrill in the PE and School Sport aspect of ROTJS.

The year 5/6 athletics team were crowned Rushcliffe Champs for the 5th year running, our football teams (boys and girls) progressed well in their cup games and 9 of our cross country team qualified to represent Rushcliffe in a county final in February. In addition to this we received a letter confirming that we had achieved 'Healthy School Status' and an email explaining we had been shortlisted as one of the most sporting schools in Nottinghamshire and may even win an award! Wow! I must admit I did have a small sherry and mince pie to celebrate!

The New Year has begun and our children are back in the thick of competition once more. Our basketball team competed in a friendly tournament last night and had a great time - Mrs Ejezie is really pleased with their progress. However it is our lower school who will doing most of the work in January with athletics heats and finals starting next week. I'm really pleased that we have entered 4 teams again and it is hard to imagine that not so long ago we would only enter one or two and only offer the club to year 4. How things have changed. I can't wait to see our younger children compete against other schools - the heats are certainly set to be both exciting and loud! Good luck to everyone taking part - especially if it is your first competition.

I've updated the competition calendar on the sports home page but there are bound to be additions popping on as and when events are confirmed - so please keep an eye on things. Our clubs have also restarted but please note that cross country is a bit wet at the moment so please provide your child with old trainers if you can which they can just use for this club. We'll run every Wednesday unless the weather is exceptionally bad so a few warm tops etc. may be needed soon if winter does eventually turn up.

Have a great weekend everyone.

MR B :)
