On Friday 23 September, some boys and girls from year 2 were invited to participate in an inter-school football tournament against Fryern Infant School. The event was held at Merdon Junior School. We had a boys and girls team each representing their classes Beech and Cedar.
The event was organised by ACE Sports & Education together with Miss Salentino. This is the first of several inter-school events planned for this year.
We hope to offer all year 2 children the opportunity to participate in one of the sporting events.
Although the day started a bit damp, the weather soon brightened up and it turned out to be a really lovely day. It was great to have some parents to support with walking the children to Merdon and cheering on the teams.
Overall, the winners were Fryern 'purple' girls and Chandler's Ford 'Beech' boys. The children showed great enthusiasm and sportsmanship and whether they were keen footballers or were playing for the first time, they all enjoyed the event.
