Elmwood Junior School complete their Soccer Aid Challenge and raise money for UNICEF!
On Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th June, every child in Elmwood Junior School took part in a fundraising activity for Soccer Aid and UNICEF. On a course designed by Mr Pollock and the Rights Respecting Ambassadors, the children had to dribble a ball through a number of obstacles, balance on a beam, crawl under a net and take a penalty against their teacher. The children have done brilliantly in donating for such a worthy cause and the government have pledged to double every £1 raised. Well done everyone!
Elmwood compete in Addiscombe Cricket Club tournament
Wednesday 23rd May 2018
9 of Elmwood’s finest cricketers took a trip to Addiscombe Cricket Club this week to compete in a tournament against local schools. The team were very excited to be testing their ability against some of the best young players in Croydon.
Elmwood did brilliantly to win 2 out of 3 games. In the first, the team won comfortably with Usmaan’s spin bowling really standing out. In the second game, the team were desperately unlucky to lose a wicket on the last ball and therefore lose the game. The team showed determination and resilience to bounce straight back and win the last game by only 1 run!
Mr Pollock and Mr M are very proud of the players and look forward to seeing them develop during cricket club in the coming weeks. Well done!
Year 3 and 4
On Wednesday 24th January, eight children from Years 3 and 4 attended a squash festival at David Lloyd Sports Club. The children took part in a number of different squash related activities. This was the first time any of the pupils had experienced playing squash, all of the pupils tried their best and enjoyed taking part in the activities. Out of five schools, Elmwood scored the highest points on the ‘squiket’ activity.
Quicksticks Hockey Tournament
Years 5 & 6
On the 18th January, twelve children from years five and six travelled to Old Palace School to participate in the Quicksticks Hockey Qualifying Tournament. For most of our upper school pupils, this was the first time they had played hockey competitively, and yet they did brilliantly! Having learned the basic skills, the children gathered along with five other schools to challenge themselves and demonstrate their incredible sportsmanship. They adapted quickly to new rules, and with each game they played, they improved. After every match, they met as a team to practise together and discussed new strategies. The students ended in 7th and 9th place in the tournament and made Ms. DiMichele, Ms. Norris and their school, very proud!
