Here at St.Augustine's we love being active! We enjoy a wide range of activities at lunchtime, in extra-curricular clubs, in school competitions, at special sports events, in inter-school competitions and of course in P.E!

 

We will post pictures and details of what we have been up to, so make sure you keep coming back to this page to find out what we have been doing. 

Sports and P.E News...

Twelve pupils from Year 3 and 4 were lucky enough to go to the UEA to see the Davis Cup. We also had some excellent tennis coaching. We had a fantastic time!

Despite their recent relegation, Thursday 12th May saw Carrow Road host a spectacular day of football in a Canary Fives Competition for Y3/4. Twenty-four schools from around the region competed in a series of mini-tournaments to demonstrate and develop their football skills.

Representing St Augustine’s were a strong squad of Y4 girls and boys who successfully won all four of their group matches through excellent teamwork and outstanding goal keeping.

Overall, it was a day of exceptional football, glorious sunshine, but more importantly one of tremendous fun which can only have lifted the spirits of Norwich City once again.

Congratulations to the team of Year 4 girls who took part in a Girls Football Competition organised by the Norwich Schools Partnership. Despite the rain, we had an enjoyable day and finished in a respectable 5th place overall, with the girls showing incredible team spirit and enthusiasm!

Year 4 boys and girls had a wonderful time in the sunshine at Norwich Rugby Club's Tag Rugby Competition. The whole team showed their impressive passing and defending skills and triumphed to become the overall winners. The winning teams were presented t-shirts and thanked the referees and hosts for organising such a fantastic day.

Our Cross Country Finalists had a beautifully warm day to run their races. They did fantastically well, with everyone beating their PB and with four top 10 finishers!

Year 5 competed well in the Y5/6 indoor Athletics competition. A talented and hard working group! We even learnt how to triple jump.

Year 1 had a wonderful time at the Football Festival; playing matches, being coached by Norwich coaches and receiving medals from Norwich City player Russell Martin!

Friday's Running Club has been a huge success, We have great fun and are keeping fit at the same time!

Here are Year 6 in action at the Tag Rugby Competition. They were praised for being highly organised and a super team!

Zumba Club has begun! Hope Year 3&4 have inspired everyone else to get involved!

Our first competition of the year, saw twenty KS2 children go to Taverham Hall for the cross country competition. Everyone did really well and SIX children qualified for the County Finals. 

Following KS1's zumba session, KS2 could wait to try it out too!
