Multi Skills Competition - Friday 28th April 2017

 

It was a really busy day for the Sports staff at PPA. As well as the whole school fun run, we took 16 children to the Multi Skills competition at William Edwards school. There was some really competitive performances from the children. A special mention has to go to Alfie, for his effort in the seated volleyball and Marc-Anthony for work on the Parachute which made everyone smile. 

 

Star Performance: Star W. Well done Star!

 

Sports Hero day - Friday 28th April 2017

 

Wow! What a fantastic response to our first ever Sports Hero's day! It was fantastic to see so many children get on board and dress up in their favourite character!

I must add that Anthony Joshua and Bradley Wiggins were absolutely brilliant! 

 

As a total the school raised £190.36. Which took Mr Kent to over £1000 pounds! A fantastic achievement in which we are extremely proud!

 

During the fun runs children got to partly experience how hard it is to run a marathon and began to understand how much determination, perseverance and effort it took Mr Kent to complete the gruelling 26.2 miles! Well done all :)

Sports Hero day Friday 28th April 2017 1

Our very own Mr. Kent completed the Brighton Marathon on April 9th .

His finish time was 5 hours 21 minutes. 

 

To help the children gain a perspective of how far this is our Year 5 pupils worked out how many laps of our MUGA it would take to complete the 26.2 miles.

 

It was a staggering 348 laps!

 

They further concluded that if they were to complete one lap per minute, it would take them 348 minutes or 5 hours 48 minutes of continuous running to complete a marathon.

Quickly the children realised that Mr Kent ran continuously for virtually a whole school day.. Pretty amazing.

It showed the dedication and hard work Mr Kent had put into his training to complete this ultimate test of endurance.

We are all very proud of him. 


To celebrate his achievements and support his chosen charity we would like children to come to school dressed either as their favourite sports person or all in purple this Friday 28th April.

 

All children will be participating in a fun run during the day attempting to collectively reach Mr Kent’s 26.2mile run.

 

50p donation per child is welcomed to help raise funds and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer Action. 

 

We thank you for your continued support. 

 

Key Stage 1 Sportshall Athletics Group 3 Champions! - 24/3/17

Year 5 and 6 Sportshall Athletics Thurrock Finals - 09/02/2017

Year 5 / 6 Sportshall Athletics competition at Basildon Sporting Village - 09/02/2017 

 

Yesterday saw 20 of our Year 5 and 6 children visit Basildon Sporting Village for the Thurrock Sportshall Athletics finals. Before I get into our performance I must commend all staff at the Thurrock School Sports Partnership for what I would personally consider the best competition I have ever taken children to. I thought the structure of the event and use of the Leadership Academy students were first class. 

 

Now, on to the competition itself. Our children trained extremely hard for this competition throughout mornings and after school and it was fantastic to see that hard work pay off. What I love about the Sportshall Athletics format is the consistency your team has to display. In order for you to achieve a high finish, you need every single child in your team to perform to the best of their abilities to earn points for your school. 

 

There were so many outstanding performances on the day looking at the event data we can divulge the following:

 

  • Joyce - 5.84m - Longest standing triple jump out of all children who participated, both boys and girls. To put that into perspective, that is 6 boys and girls from 16 schools... a total of 96 children.
  • The closest to Joyce was our boy, Fimmy, who jumped 5.54m. He also was the furthest jumper out of all the boys in his event. 
  • The boy's triple jumpers (Elvanio, Fimmy, and Jayden) were the only school where all 3 children jumped over 5 meters.  
  • The boy's obstacle relay team (Harry, Malik, Moyin and Sonny) were 1.7 seconds faster than second place and the rest of the field and won this event overall.  
  • The boys 2 and 2 race (Ryell and Harry) were 1.4 seconds faster than second place and the rest of the field and won this event.
  • The boys speed bounce team (Elvanio, Harry, and Malik) had the highest combined speed bounce score and overall came first in this event. 
  • The boys standing long jump team (Ryell, Fimmy, and Moyin) had the highest combined score and came first overall in their event.  
  • The boys standing triple jump team (Moyin, Jayden, and Fimmy) had the highest combined score and finished a combined 44cm further than the field. 
  • Both boys 4x1 relay (Ryell, Fimmy, Temi, and Chrisi) and 1 and 1 races (Elvanio and Moyin) finished 3rd overall in the combined standings. 
  • The girls 2 and 2 team (Joyce and Jessica) finished 2nd overall, pipped by Dilkes by 0.4 seconds in the combined standings.  
  • The girls Speed bounce team (Mia, Codie, and Vanessa) finished 2nd overall, missing out on top spot by 2 jumps to Belmont Castle.
  • The girls standing long jump (Mia, Codie, and Iris) and standing triple jump team (Joyce, Jessica and Lola) finished 3 and 4th respectively overall.
  • The girls Javelin (Blaize, Jessica, and Tolu) and Chest push (Blaize, Jessica and Vanessa) teams both finished in 5th place in the combined standings out of the 16 schools. 

 

 

Overall, we finished with a combined score of 920 points, which meant we were just edged out of the medals and finished an outstanding 4th place overall. We had a team target of a top 8 finish and once again the children outshone even their own personal goals to achieve this finish. 

 

After the competition we finished with a team huddle, congratulating each other on what can be only described as an epic team performance. I spoke with the children about how far hard work, determination, perseverance, and effort can take you and how this performance was not just based on their individual talent, but their desire to get themselves into school at 8 am for morning training sessions both indoors and outside to train on their specific areas.

We are all very proud of you at the school. We will celebrate the children's achievements properly when they return from half term.

Year 3 / 4 Sportshall athletics team

Year 3 / 4 Sportshall athletics team 1

On Friday 20th January 2017, twenty Year 3 and 4 children made the trip to Hassenbrook Academy for the Sportshall athletics tournament and what an excellent display our children produced. All of the adults were in agreement that it was fantastic to see all of the hours of hard work the children put in come to fruition at competition. The politeness, humbleness and support for their peers really shone through on the day.

Overall, Kenningtons finished with 80 pts, Purfleet with 90 pts, unfortunately being pipped to the line by Tudor Court on 94 pts. Well done everyone!

 

Outstanding performances: 

 

Jamel and Marvelous - Winners - 1 and 1 lap race

Jamel and Robert - Winners - 6 lap paarlauf

Eden - Winner - Girls Javelin heat 1

Jessica - Runner up - Girls Javelin heat 2

Diamond, Jessica, Jaime-belle and Abigail - Winners - Obstacle relay

Priscilla and Diamond - Winners - 1 and 1 lap race

Sarah and Jaime-belle - Winners - 6 lap paarlauf

Anneliese, Priscilla, Lola and Sarah - Winners - 4 x 1 relay

Eden and Lola - Runners up - 2 and 2 lap race

Alby and Jamel - Runner up - Boys Javelin

 

Unfortunately, we do not get results for all of the field events, but I know that there were a few children who did exceptionally well. Well done!

 

Athletics is become exceeding strong throughout our school and it seems that the quality is filtering down nicely through the year groups. Next up for Team Purfleet is the Year 5 and 6 Sportshall athletics. These two year groups have won this competition before and I know they are extremely eager to put the training hours in to enable themselves the best possible chance in competing well... Watch this space! 

 

 

 

Key Stage 2 - Badminton - 12th January 2017

On Thursday 12th January, four children from Year 5 and 6 represented the school at the Thurrock Schools Badminton competition. The children started off on a flier with Blaize and Olivija winning their opening doubles match with comfort. As we moved through the competition the children really come into their own with Jayden and Aleks both producing convincing victories with some top draw badminton. 

 

Overall the children finished joint second in their pool but narrowly missed out on the playoffs by 'points difference'. All children competed to a really high standard, showing humbleness in victory and respect in defeat. Sporting values which provide the foundations of school sport at Purfleet Primary. Well done!

 

Star player: Blaize - for producing an incredibly high standard of badminton throughout the competition.
