Match Reports 2017-18
Orienteering - Key Stage 2
The children worked in pairs and used their map reading skills to work out which controls to go to, in the correct order, at pace. They worked reciprocally, and were very speedy in finding their routes. Lots of fun was had by all.
Kurling - Key Stage 2
On 24th January, two teams took part in a Kurling competition at St Edmunds school. They learnt new skills and continued to develop their abilities as leaders and team players. The children felt very successful following the tournament and enjoyed scoring points by rolling the discs into the target circles. Team 2 came second overall and will play in the final. We wish them the best of luck!
Year 3 and 4 Football
On Wednesday morning some year 3 and year 4 pupils from Old Sarum Primary School along with nine other schools from around the area took part in a football tournament organised by St Edmund’s Girls' School. Unfortunately we didn't manage to place in the top 3 despite Ethan scoring 10 cracking goals and some fantastic saves by Nadia. The morning was enjoyed by all and Mrs Tubbs was impressed by the overall team performance, particularly their sportsmanship.
Sainsbury School Games
The children did exceptionally well with many of them reaching the finals in their event. They all showed great resilience and effort!
Josh Green came 3rd in his final. He stood on the podium and was presented with a certificate and medal! Well done!
On Monday 20th premier sports will be hosting a fun morning of different sporting activities for some of the classes.

On Wednesday 1st July, 8 children accompanied Miss Adkins and Miss James to Wimbledon. It was a glorious day and the children were fantastic. They were very excited about the day and although they had a very early start they were able to last all day and were still full of enthusiasm when they returned. They children watched a variety of tennis games, both singles and doubles and both men and women. They were learning the scoring system and the rules of the game.
Small School Tournament

Year 5/6 children went to a Tag Rugby festival at Bishops School, they played extremely well in their division table, coming fourth. They went through to play more teams in the afternoon and overall Old Sarum School came 14th out of the 26 schools. Well done!
Elevate, a local dancing company, have been working with every class in the school since September 2014. There have been some amazing performances and dance offs between the classes and the children have enjoyed every second of this experience. Elevate may be returning at some point next year.
A group of 10 pupils from year 5 and 6 made their way to Hare Warren to take part in an Orienteering competition. The children did well and are excited for the next competition!
The year 5 and 6 girls played very well in the football fixture. They defended well and played as a team. They were finding space and using tactics to help them each game.
Miss Edwards and Mrs Bradford took a team of 9 boys to a football festival on Thursday and were very proud of their team spirit and 100% effort. They all played fantastically well with several goals being scored and a super penalty that was taken by Owen C! A brilliant afternoon and they came 3rd overall - well done boys.
A team of 8 pupils from Years 5 and 6 went to a football tournament on Wednesday 1st October at the Laverstock and Ford Social Club site. The atmosphere was of a great team spirit and they all competed to a high level. They played many games against other local schools (15 schools took part in total) and all players enjoyed the opportunity to take part and felt they did their best. Great effort!
