Sport Events

Partnerships :

Our school subscribes to the Ashton Park School Sports Partnership. This partnership co-ordinates an annual programme of inter-school competitive events for individuals and teams as well as providing events for children to enjoy participating in sports activities with children from other schools 

Christ Church Primary holds the Sainsbury’s Silver Sports Kite Mark  

The school has developed a strong partnership with Clifton College, attending several competitions hosted by Clifton College during the course of the year, accessing the Clifton College grounds for sports day, and every year visiting the Clifton College Outdoor Activity Centre twice during the summer terms.    

We annually subscribe to a National Trust membership and use the Education workshops at Tyntesfield to enhance our outdoor learning opportunities as well as History and Geography knowledge and skills 

With Clifton Downs and Leigh Woods on our doorstep we link with Avon Wildlife Trust to take our children on trips to learn about the history and scientific value of these places in our locality 

For the last three years Cotham Rugby Club has agreed to host a camping festival for Christ Church families. This is a two night event with outdoor games and nature themed activities 

Whist learning about other cultures and faiths we invite individuals and groups from a range of religions and traditions to provide workshops for our children. For example in a multicultural themed week we had dance workshops led by The Great Caper (Morris Dancing), Seven Stars (African dance) and Sally Miller (South African Dance)

 

Competitions programme 

Ashton Park Sports Partnership co-ordinates an extensive inter-school competition programme as well as Sports Festivals encouraging enjoyment from participation in a range of sports- for example tri-golf and dodge ball. 

Over the last two years Christ Church Primary has participated in an increased number of events enabling more of our children to have the opportunity to represent our school. These include: 

Cross country – Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6 ; Netball – Yr 5/6; Football – Yr 5/6; Kwik sticks hockey – Yr 5/6; Sportshall athletics – Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6; Tag Rugby -  Yr3/4 and 5/6; Swimming gala – Yr 5/6; Mini tennis – Yr3/4; Aquathlon – Yr3/4 and 5/6; KS1 & KS2 Gymnastics 

Christ Church School has done exceptionally well in these competitions, more often than not coming first, second or third and being asked to send teams on to regional finals.  

We also co-ordinate matches and events with our local independent schools 

Our gifted and talented children are signposted to clubs and development events are scheduled at Bath University sports village 

We hold our Annual Sports day at Clifton College - a house event and children from Reception to year 6 earn points for their House

Yr 3/4 Football League Mar 16:  
Christ Church School entered 2 teams into the Ashton Park Year 3/4 Football League.  For many children this was their first chance to play competitive football outside school and they have thrown themsleves into it with huge enthusiasm, passion and real teamwork.  The teams improved enormously over the course of 13 matches played on 3 Thursday evenings through Term 4 - showing real potential and understanding of how to work as a team.  There were some fanastic moments of goal saving and sprints down the pitch towards the goal!  Well done Year 3 and 4 boys and girls! 
 
 
Yr 3 Tri-athalon Mar 16: 
On Friday 11th March, Christ Church School Year 3 children participated in a local schools Tri-athalon hosted by Clifton College.  They were put through their paces, moving rapidly between a relay run (where they came second overall), a relay swim and a circuit of gym activities - bench stepping, jumping, running, throwing.  The children were exhausted by the end but approached each event with enthusiasm and passion, representing the school impeccably.  Well done Year 3 boys and girls for a successfull and very healthy afternoon!  The lovely tea at the end was well deserved! 
 
 

Yr 5/6 Netball League Mar 16: 

Christ Church School entered 2 teams in the Ashston Park Year 5/6 Netball League.  Both teams showed some excellent team and individual skills, with our A team winning their side of the League to go through to the final on 8th March. 

Some fantastic court passes and excellent shooting gave Christ Church 3rd place out of 24 teams.  Congratulations to the team not only for their impressive play but also for representing our school impeccably.

 

 

Yr 5/6 Kwik Stix Hockey Apr 16: 
Well done to our Year 6 kwik sticks hockey A team who went on from winning the local schools tournament in Term 4, to reaching the quarter finals of the regional schools tournament.  It was a relentless morning for the 3 boys and 3 girls who ran their socks and shin pads off through 5 fast paced matches, scoring many goals and literally throwing themsleves around the pitch where only 4 team members can be on the pitch at any time!  To reach the quarter finals in a tournament with representation from schools all over the south west, both independant and state sector, is a real achievement. 
 

3/4 Tennis Competition July 16: 

On Wednesday 2nd July, myself and 3 of my friends took a trip to Bath University to compete in the finals for the county tennis tournament. Through determination and a fantastic team spirit, we won 5 out of our 6 matches - which lead us to finish in 5th place overall. All the matches were timed, which made it harder for us to win as many points as possible. Altogether we enjoyed the competition and were very pleased with our result.

KS1 Football tournament Jan 16: 

Last week nine children from KS1 took part in a football tournament hosted by shine.

The children's enthusiasm and team spirit was fantastic, and we were recognised for our exemplary behaviour.  Our leading goal scorer, Giacomo Hodgson, helped to steer his team to victory in one game when he displayed his impressive skills by firing home some Ronaldo worthy goals!

We are now looking forward to attending the next KS1 tournament ran by Shine which is.....Dodgeball!!!

 

Yr 2 Dance Fest Feb 16:  

2AS put on their dancing shoes on Wednesday, and strutted their stuff at the Ashton Park Partnership Dance Festival. The class performed a nifty number based upon the Rio Olympics later this year. Moving and grooving to The Road to Rio, using the music from the macaw movie Rio as their soundtrack, our children wowed children and adults alike as they brought the sequence of dance acts from Bristol schools to a close.

Miss St Aubyn was extremely proud of our terrific troupers, especially with so many of them missing rehearsals through illness. With great behaviour, teamwork and togetherness, 2AS showed that they truly are a class act.

 

Sport Relief Mar 16: 
Proceedings for Sport Relief 2016 got off to an energetic start with Miss Barsby leading a morning Wake Up and Shake Up for those early birds that arrived before school. Our very own 'Miss Motivator' was joined by a large group of teachers, pupils, parents and carers in a high-tempo workout in the playground. There were huge smiles (and some puffed out cheeks!) as everyone worked out to a pumping soundtrack, while the teachers took it in turns to bellow out instructions to get those heart rates racing.
 
Energy levels remained high throughout the day as each year group took part in a Sport Relief Skipathon, raising valuable money for a worthy cause. The children are bound to go home tired from school this afternoon as they'll have had a hefty workout.
 
 

Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6 Aquathlon Apr 16: 

87 children from Christ Church School had an exciting and energetic day on Friday 22nd April, taking part in the multi schools Aquathlon event hosted by Clifton College. 

This year the competition was split into two parts with Year 3/4 participating in the morning, followed by Year 5/6 in the afternoon. Children were partaking in either the 'Try-an-Aquathlon' or the 'Race-an-Aquathlon', both events including a swim and then a run.  Years 3 & 4 swum 50m and ran 500m and Years 5 & 6 swum 100m and ran 1000m. 

It was a highly organised and well supported event.  A number of children were nervous before hand, but threw themselves into it, and were then so proud of their acheivement and said that they were looking forward to next year's event!  They particularly enjoyed the hot chocolate and biscuit at the end! 

Year 3 did particularly well as their first year competing in the event and coming away with medals and placements in both the boys and girls events.

We were proud of our Years 5 & 6 who participated with passion and commitment despite the weather turning particularly unsupportive!

 

KS2 Gym Competition May 16: 

We had so much fun. At quarter past 11, the coach arrived and we clambered on. Once everyone was settled, we set off. As the excitement turned to nervous chatter, we arrived at the gym. Dumping our stuff in our changing room, we headed to the café for lunch. After the last few crumbs were devoured, we walked into the gymnasium ready to try our best. While the level 2s tried out the different apparatus, the level 1s stayed behind to begin the competition. Lining up for the vault, everyone could feel the tension in the air.

Having finished the vault, we started stretching, ready for our floor routine. Once the last gymnast had performed, we had a long rest while watching our competition. Then it was the level 2s turn to compete, whilst we had a go on the apparatus. As the results were presented at the end of the day we were understandable disappointed to be robbed of any podium places – Miss Barsby is convinced that there must have been a miscalculation somewhere! The year 5/6s are now looking forward to their next competition – cricket!
