On Tuesday 7th May, 3 year 3’s and 5 year 4’s went to Sutton Lawn to play the Wilson Shield on a beautiful 4G pitch. We played on pitch 2 in Group B alongside 4 other teams. We drew our first game 0-0. In our next game we had high hope of winning but yet again another 0-0 draw. With only 2 points in 2 games we needed a win in game 3. We played to our advantage of having one player more and got our first 4 goals with a 4-0 win. We played the penultimate game in our group against Greenwood. Unfortunately, we lost 1-0 to a good side. We waited tensely to see where our 5 points would put us. Luckily we managed to get through to the quarter finals. It was a tough game and with the score at 0-0 with only 3 minutes left Ewan had a shot which was saved and fell straight to Zack for the tap in. 1-0 into the semi-finals we went. Sadly, we lost 1-0 but we were proud to come 3rd.

Quick Sticks Hockey
The year 6 hockey team played this week with year 5 stand-in due to illness. (Kasey Platts). This was our first ever competition but the team improved as the games went on and finished 5th out of 12 teams taking part. Well done to all who played.
Year 5 football tournament
The boys finished top of the group and went on to the play-off rounds. They battled on with the cold weather and the driving rain, showing some fantastic perseverance. Unfortunately we were knocked out in the quarter finals.
Year 6/5 Cricket.
On Thursday we had a coach from Notts. Cricket come into school to coach 16 children. This gave the children a chance to develop their skills and the leaders from Holgate and National Academy's to learn how to umpire. All those who participated thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
At 1:15pm, Leland Clark, Tilly-Mae Goose, Kasey Platts, Lola Dunn, Skye Gallacher and Ashdon Brierley went to our school hall to start setting up for the competition. We showed teamwork during our rounds. Around 6 games were played. At the end, we came joint first with another school, but as we won the last game with the most points, we won the whole competition. We are now through to the Nottinghamshire School Games.

We left school at around 1pm. The people who went to the Boccia tournament were: Tilly-Mae Goose, Leland Clark, Ashdon Brierly and Skye Gallacher. It was at Hucknall National School. At the school, we were against Croft primary and a few more. At the end, we came joint first. Boccia is a sport where you sit in a chair. The first person throws or rolls a white ball. Then the next person tries to get as close as possible to the white ball.

In other sporting news, the futsal team got gold and are through to the district finals. The netball team also did well and scored two goals (Lily and Amber).
Netball and Futsal were on the fixtures list last week. A team of Year 4 and 5 netballers played well together with some playing for the first time- fantastic teamwork!
Another Boccia match, held at Hillside saw our team come in a well-earned third place- well done!
After school, a confident Year 4 futsal team travelled to Holgate. When we got there we put our bags on our mat and went to warm up. There were a lot of teams (9 to be exact) all practicing like us. Eventually, the man in charge called us to sit in our teams. As we sat down, we realised that there were some strong teams. The rules of futsal seemed very much like when we play football only it was kick-ins and keepers couldn’t boot it they had to roll it. Soon after that, the first game was underway. We had to wait 4 long games to play. Finally, after gathering lots of team tactics, we played. We won 3-1. After that we waited another long period to play our match against Beardall fields and we won 1-0. After 4 more games, we played our last game in the Hucknall group. It was against Edgewood and if we won we would guarantee 1st spot and a place in the finals. It was a 0-0 draw, which made the tension get to us. He announced the out of Hucknall group. He announced the bottom 2 in our group. He said "and in 2nd place with 6 points is..." and when the word Edgewood came out of his mouth we knew we had won our group. There was relief along the line of blue. We were ecstatic! Great teamwork: Archie, Cassia, Charlie, Che, Elias, Taylor and Zack

On Thursday, the girl’s football team played a match against the girls from Morven Park. We took a young team, consisting of mostly year 4’s and 5’s, and played in some fairly challenging conditions. The whole team were absolutely brilliant throughout, demonstrating amazing teamwork, sportsmanship and resilience. Chloe Hayward and Ashleigh Houston wrote a report of the game:
After school, the girls football team (us, Cassia, Chloe L, Nicola, Isabelle M, Daisy, Lily and Eloise) went to Morven Park to play a game. When we got there, it was wet, damp and muddy, which wasn’t good for us. All the girls we were playing against were year 6’s but we didn’t mind. The first goal went to Morven Park. Next, Cassia had an amazing shot and managed to score. We were all cheering, but then Morven Park scored two more to make it 3-1 at half time.
In the second half, Cassia scored a banger of a goal to make it 3-2 to them and Daisy, our goalkeeper, made some amazing saves. Unfortunately, they scored two more in the second half. At the end of the match, it was 5-2 to them. We shook hands and said well done. Mr Tyler was so proud and gave us some biscuits. We all went home and we were happy with what we achieved. Thank you for reading our report.

When we went rowing on Tuesday night, I really enjoyed it and we competed at a school called Kirkby and we came 7th. We worked as a big team because if we fell off the seat one of our team members would push us back on. When we got on, we needed our feet strapping in. Everyone cheered each other on and that made us feel really happy.

In addition, the children have qualified for the district finals- a great achievement. Well done!
Tuesday saw an exciting spectacle with the year 4 indoor athletics competition. The children were superb and competed in different athletic events. They showed fantastic teamwork and supported each other throughout the evening. Mimi- Jo fell in one race, picked herself up and continued with true grit and perseverance. She came back to win the race! Other highlights include Finley winning the chest press, Cassia winning the triple jump, Daisy and Lily winning the chest push and everyone for winning 9 out of the 12 races. They finished an incredible second overall and are hoping (fingers crossed) that it is enough to go through to the district finals.
The girls were absolutely phenomenal during a tournament at Leen Mills on Tuesday. We had three year 5’s and six year 4’s on our team and most of the other teams were made up of year 6’s. The girls drew 2 games out of 4 and Isabelle Morrison scored a wonderful goal after some great play by Cassia against Croft in a 1-1 draw. Isabelle Whitworth was in goal for the first time and overcame nerves to put in some brilliant performances. All of the girls showed outstanding sportsmanship throughout and displayed all our Hillside values, teamwork in particular. Miss McCormick and I are incredibly proud!
