Sports Round Up Of The Term

As we moved into the summer term, our tag rugby club and New Age Kurling/Boccia club were replaced by a cricket club in preparation for the upcoming tournaments, both girls and mixed.


Our Year 3’s also started their school swimming lessons and already in just 1 term are showing excellent progress.


This term saw an opportunity for some of our younger pupils to represent the school at a competition and a festival. First up it was a group of KS1 children who attended the All Stars Cricket festival, they had the opportunity to play lots of different skill based games around cricket and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Following on from this was the Year 3/4 cross country competition. We had 10 boys and 10 girls compete in the competition, with over 200 competitors in each race. All of our children did their best to complete the long course and we had some brilliant finishing positions, especially considering the majority of the team were taking part in cross country for the first time.


Our girls cricket team were down to compete in the Dynamos cricket tournament, however this was postponed due to bad weather but we are hoping this will be rearranged for term 6.


As I’m sure you are aware, we have introduced you all to Street Tag this term. As I write this, Team Belmont currently sit 3rd in the table which is a fantastic start for us! If you haven’t already, I urge you to download the Street Tag app and sign up - not only will it make the journey to school more interesting, it is also a great way to work as part of Team Belmont, to collect tags together, to win prizes, together. If you do require any assistance with this please do get in touch.


Finally, the final week of this term saw the return of the Belmont Football Tournament. Again, we hosted a tournament with 8 teams involved, 3 from Belmont, 2 from Long Bennington and then teams from Belton Lane, Claypole and St Mary’s. All 3 of our teams played very well and competed in every game of the group stages. The tournament then split into two halves, 4 teams playing for the shield and 4 teams playing for the cup. All 3 of our Belmont teams were playing for the cup, meaning two of them had to play each other in the semi-finals. This game was a brilliant contest and the team of Year 6’s came out eventual winners and made it to the final. In the other semi-final, our team of Year 5’s played a Long Bennington team and came out winners, meaning it was an all Belmont final. Again, this was a fantastic match, with the Year 5’s taking an early lead, before being pegged back by the Year 6 team in the final stages of the match, with the Year 6’s coming out 2-1 winners. This meaning our Year 6 team won silverware in their last football match for the school. I was very proud of all of the children who took part, they represented the school brilliantly and played their best in every game.


I would also like to extend congratulations to Claypole School who won the shield half of the tournament, coming out 2-1 winners in a hotly contested final against Long Bennington.


Next term we are looking forward to Sports Week/Sports Day, Cricket competitions, KS2 athletics competition and our Girls Belmont Football tournament.


Thanks for your continued support,
