Tag rugby competition
On Tuesday 4th October, some of our Year 6 children took part in a tag rugby competition at Chipstead Rugby Club. The team competed against four other local schools, playing really well. They won two of their games, drew one and narrowly lost one (by just a single point). Overall, they finished in second place.
There was a very proud performance by all players, some excellent passing and tagging by them all. They read the game well and worked well as a team. There were some outstanding individual performances and, with a little more practice, they could be winners!
Thanks, as always, to Mrs Byrne for her enthusiasm.

May I start by saying how we all, children and adults, are delighted with our new pitch! It is already having a huge impact on the delivery of PE and sport both in lessons and in extra-curricular activities.
We are pleased to share the news that St.Anne’s has been awarded a silver certificate in the School Games Awards Scheme. In the previous year we received a bronze award. The award is based upon criteria such as the involvement of the school in inter-school competitions, inter-house competitions, older children acting as sports leaders to the younger children and involving local clubs in sport at St Anne’s.
It has been a great start to the year for our Year 6 boys’ football team! Banstead Junior School hosted a mini tournament on Thursday 21st September. We played the home team firstly and won the game 2-0 and then played Warren Mead Junior School and won again, this time 1-0. The team played extremely well; the members were Toby Woods, Bobby Fasano-Barton, Marcus Mundy, Joseph Gibbard, Jack Seymour, Noah Kyriakou, Matthew Jarvis, Lachlan Main and George Aires. We look forward to seeing them in action again soon.
To follow the Year 6 example, the Year 5 football team have also been victorious in their first fixture of the year. They were in action this Thursday. We once again played Banstead Junior School first and won the match 1-0. In our second game, with Warren Mead Junior School, we led by 2-0 at half time. Warren Mead scored in the second half but we managed to keep the score to 2-1 until full time. Once again, there was some excellent play on all parts of the field. The team members were Ricky Brandli, Joe Tynan, Zach Clark-Morgan, George Bond, Christian Snell, Mikie Hemming, Ben Anderson, Sammy Lynch and Oliver Earp.
