Despite the very muddy conditions and the early start, the 14-pupil strong team were prepared to run their hearts out running a distance of 1,800 metres per race.

Due to some last minute illnesses, only 5 girls could compete on the day which meant a busy afternoon of netball as they all had to play every game, with no rotations! However, they all took to the court with a determined attitude and gave it their best shot. Unfortunately, the team did not qualify for the finals this time around, but are looking forward to continuing their training at the after school Netball Club.

They won three out of the four matches; however the loss against Keston meant Unicorn came 2nd in the pool, not making it through to the finals on this occasion.

The 15 pupil strong team raced against 1,200 participants and ran a distance of 1,800 metres per race. The Unicorn pupils showed high spirit and aspiration to further improve on their previous race positions. For Mia, Fynn and Annie this was to be their first Cross Country race and, despite the nerves, all completed their races with respectable positions. The year 5 girls’ team showed real promise with the majority of the girls coming in below the first 100. Luke in Year 5 attained the lowest position in the Unicorn team (21st), even after falling head over heels in the mud during the race! Huge congratulations go to all of the pupils who took part; you showed real commitment and determination to do your best. Full results about race positions, individual medallists and winning teams are published on the http://www.bpscca.co.uk website. Special thanks must also go to Miss Elvines, Miss Letchford, Mr Harrison and Mrs Robinson for supporting the event through marshalling the race course and for collating the positions of the pupils at the end of each race. Without this support we could not run the event safely and smoothly. Thank you also for all the parents that came and supported the team. It is a huge team effort and really does require a team to make it work. Details of the race for year 3 and 4 are to follow in the new year.

Each child also participated in relay events for boys, girls and mixed teams. The morning began with bright sunny weather where the children participated in their heats to determine where they should be placed for the afternoon final races or field events. As the clouds rolled in we all took shelter under Mrs Quashie’s gazebo as the heavens opened and contemplated how the children had performed. After a well deserved lunch break the field events resumed. Oscar in the howler throw event throw an amazing throw which put him in the top 8 of the 16 children which participated. Max also participated in the howler throw and he threw the second highest distance of the day. Both of these performances resulted in the boys being asked back to compete in the individual finals to the Bromley Borough competition across all schools in July. Zoe and Pier also participated in the howler throwing event which the girls felt apprehensive about. However, despite the nerves Zoe came in the top 12 of the girls which competed in the A group. Next up was the triple jump where Bertie came first in the B group finals. Miss Hayes and Mrs Crow were very impressed with all the children who participated in the field events as many of them were unfamiliar to the children and they tried so hard to perfect the techniques. After the mixed relay event the track finals commenced. Jayden came 1st in his c group final running over a distance of 150m. Tyler ran with stamina and strength to win the A gro

The children completed two laps of the cycling course and from this race the children were then seeded by the results of the race. Connie did very well in her first race coming in the top two. Sophia also did very well coming in the first four in her race. Pier had an awful first race where she fell off her bike and badly grazed her ankle. Despite this fall she got up and was determined to complete the second race with style and gusto. In the second races Gabriel and Cayden managed a third and fourth place out of 16 children. Each child showed courage when racing and did their best to win points for Unicorn. Although we didn’t win the event it was a great experience and one that we hope to repeat next year.

Boccia Festival (3 images)

On Monday 22nd May we went to Keston Primary School for a Boccia Festival with Miss Brazier. When we arrived we met the other schools that we were competing against. Boccia is a fun sport to play. You need 2 teams and the Captains of each team toss a coin to see who goes first. The player who wins the toss throws the white ball called a ‘Jack’. Then each player takes it in turns to throw their balls to try and get near to the Jack. The closest team near the Jack wins the point. In the Unicorn team there was myself, Elsie, Jasmine and Brogan. I used a ramp to help me throw my ball. In our final game against Keston, I was made Captain. I was so excited. Our team won against Keston and St Nicholas and we came 5th in the tournament. I was player of the day for the Unicorn team and had to collect our certificates during the presentation. I really enjoyed playing Boccia it was lots of fun. By Brian (Class 3B)

Harry on his debut for Unicorn set up the first goal which put Unicorn into the lead. A second goal later followed giving a 2-0 win to Unicorn. The final match was against Burnt Ash. Unicorn took chances to shoot at the goal but the final result ended in a 2-0 defeat. The boys played with spirit and determination throughout the competition. Despite feeling disappointed to come third overall in the group Andy (their football coach) and Mrs Crow (the PE subject leader) were extremely proud of the way they played as a team, particularly as this competition was the first opportunity for many of the boys to represent the school.

High Five Tournament report (9 images)

High 5 tournament report from Katherine in Year 6. On Thursday 6th October 2016, Pier, Emily, Harry, Tyler, Kai and I went to Hayes Secondary School to represent Unicorn in the ‘High Five’ netball tournament. We played on the number four court and within our group we had three schools to play. Our first game with Keston Primary resulted in a 0-0 draw. The next game was against Highfield and Kai managed to score a point which resulted in a match win. We watched a couple of matches and saw a man who coached Balgowan ‘A’ team. He shouted at his team very fiercely and we were a little intimidated as we had to play them next!! In this match against Balgowan, the whole Unicorn team worked really hard as we knew we had to win this match to get into the final. Pier passed to me and I scored one point and soon after I scored again! We all jumped up and down with excitement. We were all good sportsmen and shook hands with every player on the other team. At the very end of the tournament we sat down and eagerly awaited the final scores. When the lady announced court four we all felt nervous. She announced that Unicorn was first with a total of 12 points. We were all really shocked and ecstatic. We would like to say a massive thank you to Mrs Margo, Ann and Sarah who have been superb netball coaches. We had a super time and we are looking forward to playing again in the final in a few weeks.

Football Matches (5 images)

FOOTBALL By Ryan, Louis and Marley..... On Thursday 22nd October, certain boys named Kia in year four, Siddy and Adam from year five and in year six Louis, Ryan, Alexander, Owen, Oscar and Alexi played in a football match. It was their first match of the season. The boys had a great experience and a lovely time and on top of this the boys won four, three. Congratulations to the boys and we hope they continue this winning streak. .....................Andy Rothwell- Football coach. Yesterday the Unicorn boys played a football match against Princess plain and won the game 4-3. The game was played in fantastic spirits and both teams played superbly. We went 2-0 up inside the first 10 minutes and the boys played some brilliant football. Unfortunately we had a bad 10-15 minute spell where we conceded 3 goals. Half time came around and we were 3-2 down. The boys were gutted I thought they were going to crumble but the effort and desire they showed to turn the game around was magnificent. I was impressed by all of the boys behaviour which was outstanding as they represented the school in a great way.
