Brilliant biathletes compete at Bath University!

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to Darcey, Oscar, Sophie, Theo, Leo, Molly, Charlotte and Mia who all competed in a biathlon organised by Prior Park School. They had to run 800m and swim 1 length of the Olympic-sized pool (50m)!. The U12 team met Joe Choong, a modern pentathlete, who has been selected for the Tokyo Olympics. Oscar was proud of himself because he used the diving blocks for the first time when he was warming up for the race. All of our biathletes were wearing matching red vests with Neston emblazoned on the back in rainbow hues - many thanks to Ms Pardoe for sorting this kit for our team. Darcey said, “The vests made us feel like professional athletes!” I think that all the adults who went along to support our team would concur that everyone tried their best at this big event and should be very proud of themselves. Many thanks to all the parents who made it possible for our athletes to attend this event - hopefully some of them may even qualify for the British Schools Modern Biathlon Championships (like Darcey, Billy and Molly did last year)!

Neston pupils celebrate National Poetry Day with Autumn Haikus!

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to these budding poets who wrote sensational seasonal haikus to celebrate National Poetry Day on 3.10.19. Haikus can be written on any subject - the only rule is that the first line needs 5 syllables, the second, 7 syllables and the last line, back to 5 syllables. Why don't you try one yourself?

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to Captains Isla and Theo and their Y6 team of Keira, Chloe D, Molly, Max, Reegan and Leo for coming second in a Level 2 competition at the Dome in Chippenham! One of the highlights of the afternoon was getting to hold the actual (silver and gold and very heavy) Cricket World Cup Trophy!!! Many thanks to Mrs Graham for accompanying the team and, as always, to the parents who took the time to help transport the team - without you, these events wouldn’t be possible!

More School Games Participation - this time, Orienteering!

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to Charlotte, Theo, Sophie and Reegan, who made up our orienteering team for 2019. Led by Ken Stimson of North Wiltshire Orienteers, they raced against teams from other schools in a course all around the grounds of Corsham School and then did a relay event using the latest electronic equipment.

Team have a mathtastic time at Primary Challenge!

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to Lara, Billy, Oscar, Jemima, Jocelyn and Oliver who spent this morning at Corsham School competing in a number of maths rounds against numerous other primary schools from the local area. Our team was supported (and inspired) by Lily Overton, a Corsham School A-level student and Neston alumni. It was wonderful to see her and her fellow ex-Neston students, James Redman, Henry Phillips, Ben Ward and Tom Tanner, who are all excelling in maths and sciences. Hopefully our Y5/6 Maths Challenge Team will follow in their footsteps, as they came second out of 16 teams!

Super start to the School Games year!!!

Added on by Kate Sims.

Congratulations to the Y5/6 Neston football team who played in a series of matches against the other schools in our cluster and won the whole competition.

Rugby Team take home fair play trophy from cluster tournament

Added on by Kate Sims.

A super well done to the Neston Tag Rugby team (Chloe, Leo, Theo, Harriet, Max, Charlotte, Reegan, Molly, Olivia and Izzy) who played in 5 fast-paced matches at a cluster festival last week! Our top try scorer was Leo with 11 tries across all five matches! His co-captain Chloe also did us proud, leading the warm up session, supporting the less-experienced players and by being a very safe pair of hands to pass to. Some of our new-to-rugby players had impressive pace and got us many tags. The entire team worked brilliantly together and won their first two matches by 2 or 3 tries. Both of the matches that they lost was only by 1 try each - very close, exciting contests!
