Mr Evans took the girls team to play in a Futsal festival @ the Futsal Centre in Newport. The girls had 5 games and played very well in all with a mixed bag of outcomes. Some won, some drawn and some lost. It was an excellent opportunity to explore a different version of the game and test out those skills developed in PE and after school club.

Year 6 played a friendly game v Dover Park. This was a well contested game which saw Greenmount go into an early 2-0 lead. However in the second half DP came back into the game and scored 2 goals to make the final result a 2-2 draw.

On Thursday our U10 football team were in action again in the U10 cup quarter finals v Broadlea. This was a tough game in which we created a number of chances but were unable to convert any into goals. A bad bounce and a ball ricocheting off a defenders knee put the Broadlea striker in a great goal shooting position and he took his chance well. Greenmount continued to push for the equaliser but despite chances being created were unable to find that elusive goal to take the game to extra time.

Unfortunately we were unable to progress from our semi final v Carisbrooke to reach the final of the U10 League Cup. Despite having much of the play and creating numerous chances Greenmount were unable to beat a well organised Carisbrooke team.

Basketball.

Our basketball team made the trip to Medina College to compete in the island basketball finals. There were 10 teams from across the island all of whom had been winners or runners up in their respective cluster competitions. Our team were placed in a very strong group and competed well but unfortunately were not able to progress to the finals and ultimately onto the Hampshire games this year. However it was fantastic to see one of our former Greenmount sports leaders, Alex Richens, assisting the School Games Organisers to referee the games as a Medina College sports leader.

Tablet Pics Cezanne 189

 

 

The Island Basketball Finals took place after School on Friday 18th March at Ryde Academy. Our Greenmount team played fantastically well and in the group stages were unbeaten, scoring 54 points and conceding none!

This took the team straight through to the semi final, where the team beat St. Mary’s 1 2-4 to reach the final. The final was a hard fought match, going basket for basket and despite having comfortably beaten their opponents in the group stage the team were very unlucky to concede a basket just before the final whistle to lose by one basket!

However, our wonderful team all won silver medals and have qualified to represent the Isle of Wight in the Hampshire Games in Aldershot on the 30th June. An amazing achievement. Congratulations to the team !

WE’RE IN THE CUP FINAL !

 

 

Bembridge 2-6 Greenmount

A fantastic display of passing football from both teams. Bembridge played very well but in the end the quality of the Greenmount team shone through. Goals from Charlie Hayward 3, Finley Reed 2 and Charlie Luter made the difference. A solid display from Oliver Lacey in goal with the defensive pair Callum Rouse and Lennon Williams limiting Bembridge to only a very few goal scoring opportunities. Our midfield players moved the ball well, creating chances and defended resolutely when needed. Jack Herbert, Mateus Lamb, Charlie Luter and Charlie Hayward (C) all produced solid performances. Up front our spearhead players Finley Reed and Zach McShane were lively and gave the Bembridge defence a busy afternoon.

Well played boys! Greenmount win through to their second cup final in successive seasons. Hopefully this will be our year to bring home the winners trophy!

Greenmount were second placed out of 15 teams (Silver medallists) This bodes very well for  future competitions when these young athletes represent Greenmount in the yr 5&6 school games competitions.

Our year 5&6 Sports Hall Athletics team competed at the island finals at Medina College on 15 January. There were teams from across the island all of whom had either won or been runner up in their respective cluster event. Each competitor competed in a field event, a running event and a relay. The competition was open to all 43 island primary schools and so qualifying for the finals in a major achievement. Greenmount were placed 10th overall.

“Search for a Star” Gifted and Talented Sports Programme

Our talented year 5&6 athletes are coming to the end of their gifted and talented sports training with PSSC. This provision is funded by the school. Children are selected for this proramme through exceptional performance in PE lessons and after school clubs.They will soon be performing a series of assessments to gain their gold, silver or bronze awards. Good luck to all our athletes.

We are currently selecting the year 3&4 athletes to attend this excellent scheme for the spring 2 and summer terms.

Football:             

Our U11 boys and girls teams have completed their fixtures and now will play friendlies against other Ryde schools. The girls will have the opportunity to play in a tournament in May organised by the FA Skills Coaches who will be working in Greenmount in spring term 2.

U9 Ray Southwell Cup

With the run of very wet weather schools were struggling to play any matches this term. However with an important quarter final game to complete by half term we managed to have our pitch cut to allow us to play this game. Although still boggy in places the pitch was playable and Broadlea visited Greenmount to fulfil the fixture by the deadline date.

This was a tough game and Broadlea were a well organised team who had the best of the first half play forcing 2 good saves and going a goal up. In the second half Greenmount started to come back into the game and had most of the play forcing Broadlea to defend more. Eventually the equaliser came and the game went into extra time. The pattern of play was a similar story in this period with both teams looking for the win but the tie was still 1-1 at the end taking the game to a penalty shoot out. Luckily Greenmount ran out winners 4-2 taking us to the semi finals in March against either Newchurch or Bembridge who have yet to play.

 

Autumn Term

It has been a very busy  Autumn term for sport at Greenmount.. Our teams have competed in the school games competitions and the IW schools football competitions.

In PE we have been focusing on the multi skills of Agility, Balance and Coordination in our foundation and key stage 1 classes. In lower key stage 2 we have been further developing multi skills using tag rugby and sports hall athletics as our focus sports. In upper key stage 2 we have been developing our multi sports skills for tag rugby and sports hall athletics and preparing our year 5 & 6 players to compete in the Ryde cluster events and hopefully to progress to the island finals and ultimately compete at the Hampshire Games in the summer for the island.

Year 3 have also had a lesson in Archery using soft archery equipment, delivered by our SGO Mr Harris. This was delivered as part of their studies of the Stoneage period. The lesson included a hunt using tall cones as targets to simulate dinner!

IW Schools FA Competitions.

Our U11 team have now completed their league fixtures coming 4th in the group. We are still in the U11 cup and will play Carisbrooke Primary in the next round.

Greenmount 0-7 Bembridge

A hard game against a very strong Bembridge team who passed the ball well and took their chances. We battled well but this was a fair result.

Niton 4-3 Greenmount

A very close game which went goal for goal but unfortunately Niton stole the win with a last minute goal.

Greenmount 0-1 New church

Another close game which could have been won by either team. The development of our players was there to see and very pleasing! Newchurch were a good team and this was a great performance despite the result.

U11 Cup

Greenmount 5-1 Priory

A great win. We kept our shape and every player kept to their tasks resulting in an organised team performance! We scored some great goals with the pick of these being from Keenan with an overhead kick!

 

The U11 girls played Wooton in the U11 girls cup and lost but are developing well and will be a force for the future. We hope to arrange some friendly games for them next term.

Our U9 team have won their first two games in the Ray Southwell cup and we are waiting to hear who we will meet in the next round. Our current team reached the final of this competition last year so fingers crossed!! There will also be friendlies for players who are not playing in the cup competition.

Greenmount 8-1 Barton

A good performance to beat a battling Barton team. The team have started where they left off last season in this competition.

Greenmount 10-0 St Francis

This was just like watching Brazil!! Some excellent team play with crisp passing, driving runs and well taken goals.

As Christmas approaches and the tree and the stage go up in the hall. The children will have the opportunity to try out some inclusive sports and we will be playing Goal Ball, Sitting Volleyball and Mr Harris own version of Wheelchair Rugby and Wheelchair Basketball and The Cube!!

 

Sports for Champions

The school also had a visit from Team GB gymnast Harry Owen who gave an eye-opening glimpse into the commitment and practice needed to excel in any chosen field.  Harry’s is gymnastics and the children spent an energetic afternoon joining him in a fitness routine, listening to nutrition advice and to his journey so far.  He demonstrated some basic gymnastic moves – which seemed to involve him flying over various nervous children and staff – and then showed us all a video of the most astonishing gymnastics.  I think all of the children enjoyed the afternoon – Harry certainly did!

Thank you to all of the parents who took up the short-notice sponsorship challenge; by yesterday afternoon, we had raised just over £1,405 which has been shared between the school and Sports for Champions.  This will help the non-sponsored athletes in Team GB to continue their training and be ready for national and international competitions as well as helping us to give your children the best start in their sporting careers here.  Harry pointed out to them that he began his career in a primary school PE lesson – anything is possible if children are engaged and can persevere with their efforts!  A particular thank you from them to Alfie Keefe in da Vinci class for raising £121 on his own!  A gold medal fundraiser!
