Year 4 mixed football 5-a-side competition

On Wednesday 20th September eight Year 4 children represented Chilcote at a mixed football competition. The competition took place at Kings Heath Boys School. There were five teams at the tournament and each team played each other once in a league format.

Chilcote started out with a game against Bells Farm who were a very good side. It was a tight game with Chilcote finding it hard to score, but with not long left on the clock James hit a curling effort that the keeper could only touch into her own net.

In their second game Chilcote played against Yardley Wood. They started really well and scored quite quickly. They then added a second and third goal to run out 3v0 winners.

In the third game Chilcote played against Hollywood. This was a tough match as Hollywood had won their first two games too. Chilcote took the lead with their first attack before adding a second not long afterwards. Not long before the end Hollywood got a goal with a long range shot. This made for a nervy finish. Chilcote held firm though and won 2v1.

Finally, Chilcote played against the Oaks. Chilcote played really well and managed to score 4 goals in the game. This meant that they won 4v0.

Therefore, Chilcote topped the league at the end of the night having won every game and only conceding 1 goal.

Well done to all of the children who were involved as they represented the school brilliantly and performed excellently!!!

South Birmingham 7-a-side

On Friday 15th September the Chilcote boys' football team took part in their first tournament of the year - the South Birmingham 7-a-side tournament. The tournament took place at Yardley Wood playing fields. A total of fourteen schools entered the tournament and were split into four groups.

Chilcote were drawn in a group with Clifton and Acocks Green. They played Acocks Green first and won 1v0. Then, they beat Clifton 1v0 as well. They then played the two schools again and beat them both 2v0 this time. Therefore, Chilcote finished top of the group and qualified for the semi finals.

In the semi finals Chilcote played against St Ambrose Barlow. It was a good game that Chilcote dominated but they just could not get a goal. After normal time and extra time the game ended 0v0. This meant penalties. Chilcote managed to win 2v1 on penalties and deservedly got to the final.

In the final Chilcote played against Colmore. Colmore were the better side in the match and had the ball in Chilcote's half for long periods but they couldn't find a goal. This meant that the match again went to penalties. Chilcote missed their first two penalties. Which meant Colmore needed to score to win, but they didn't and then Chilcote scored their first penalty in sudden death and Colmore again missed, meaning Chilcote were the winners!

Well done to all of the boys involved as they represented the school brilliantly! They now get to go to a county tournament and represent South Birmingham!

Junior Choir at Symphony Hall

On the evening of Friday 21st July, Junior Choir sang with 500 other children from 14 different primary schools at one of the  Music Service Gala concerts in Symphony hall. We also had the opportunity to watch other musical ensembles- including the Birmingham Schools Jazz band and the Birmingham Schools Symphony Orchestra.
We sang 7 songs that we have been practising at school and wore xylobands to create light effects when we performed our actions.
Everyone performed well and our choir were a credit to our school. Thank you very much to Mrs Rafter and Mrs Bundy who came with us and supported us so enthusiastically.

Year 1's 'Our Garden' homework projects

On Monday the 17th July Year 1 children proudly displayed their fabulous homework projects. The pupil's task was to design and make their ideal garden. The children were free to show their work in anyway they liked, for example a poster, model or sculpture. Please see some of the wonderful examples below.

The homework project was based around the children's current Topic of 'Insects and Flowers'. The children have been learning about plants, trees and mini beasts and their habitats.
Thank you to parents for their support in undertaking the project and the Year 1 staff were pleased to see lots of parents come to the exhibition after school. The children really enjoyed showing their work to friends and family.

Nursery's health week so far........

We have had a jam-packed and fun week so far that started with Bollywood dancing on Monday, Nursery AM had sports day on Tuesday and we had a visit from Tom Foster, a Paramedic.  We even got to go in the ambulance and turn on the sirens!  On Wednesday we made fruit faces (briefly, before eating the lot!)  Still lots to come.
