KAS Football League Match Away to Manor Fields Thursday 7th March

On a very cold, wet and windy afternoon last Thursday we took both the A and B teams to play against Manor Fields. They are a strong side but both teams played well and there were some great saves by both goal keepers. The B team drew their match 1:1 and the A team lost 7:1.

BSP KS1 Gymnastics Competiton 2019

On Tuesday 23rd January, a team of pupils from Year 2 entered the annual BSP KS1 Gymnastics Competition held at Stortford Gymnastics. Having enjoyed a coaching session at the gym last week practising a range of skills including teddy bear rolls, pikes and vaulting, the children who were selected to represent the school in the competition practised hard for a week and were rewarded with fantastic results. We were placed first in both the bar and floor sections which meant we were awarded first place out of 8 schools who competed in the first session of the competition. A brilliant result! Many congratulations to those children who took part and we await the results of the second section which took place later that morning to see where we were placed overall in the competition. Fingers crossed!

Whatever the result, the children enjoyed a fantastic morning, improving their gymnastics skills and as always being great ambassadors for St Michael's School. Well done Jacob, Lara, Libby, Alexander, Ellie, Soname and Benjamin. Thanks also to all the parents and grandparents who helped with lifts and can along to support us.


KAS Football League 2018-19

This year we have entered into the Kitteridge All Sports Football League playing matches against lots of local schools. We are playing in a Silver and a Gold League so we are able to put together two mixed teams of pupils from Years 5 and 6. We have already played against Thorley Hill, St Joseph's, St Mary's Hatfield Broad Oak, Spellbrook and Little Hallingbury. Both teams have enjoyed the opportunity to represent our school and have had some wins, draws and loses too but all have been taken in the true spirit of good sportsmanship.


FOOTBALL COACHING

Autumn 2018


We were lucky enough to receive some free football coaching sessions for every class in the school through our membership of the Birchwood Sports Partnership from Gary Hart who is a coach for Bishop’s Stortford Community Football Club. As you can see from the photographs this was a great experience for all our pupils and lots of potential footballers for the school team were identified for the years to come!

BSP Cheerleading Competition 2018


For a third year running the St Michael's Cheerleader Squad entered the BSP annual Cheerleading Competiton. The squad is made up of a range of pupils from Year 3 to 6 and they train weekly at the school club on a Friday lunchtime (details from the school office if your child is interested in joining).

The audience of friends and family were treated to a fabulous display of skills and talent by all the pupils, with some moves and lifts that Strictly Come Dancing competitors would be proud of! Although we didn't win the overall competition, Ruby Bentley from Year 5 was awarded with the Player of the Competition trophy. We are so proud of her and it was well deserved for her amazing chant leadership.
