2022/23

Wednesday 21st September 2022 - Multiskills Festival, Kings' School

 

On Wednesday we took 11 children from year 4 to a Multi-skills Festival hosted by Kings' School. The children were able to experience new activities such as squash, archery, croquet and rhythmic gymnastics. It was a fantastic afternoon enjoyed by all!

 

 

Tuesday 27th September - Boys Football Festival, Toynbee School

 

On Tuesday we took a team to Toynbee School to take part in a football tournament. They played a number of 7 a-side games against local schools. It was fantastic to see them working so well as a team coming away with a couple of draws and a win. Even the heavy rain couldn't dampen their spirits! 

 

 

Wednesday 12th Oct - Commonwealth Games Festival, Kings’ School

 

On Wednesday some of our year 6 children had the opportunity to take part in a CWG themed festival hosted by Kings’ School. The children took part in a carrousel of 10 different activities which included; boxing, boccia, archery, squash, netball, cricket, basketball, volley ball, badminton and rhythmic gymnastics.

 

It was a brilliant event run by Kings’ pupils and the children had lots of fun trying their hands at new things. 

 

 

Wednesday 9th Nov - Basketball competition, Thornden School

 

This week our year 6 basketball team took part in a tournament at Thornden School. They played a 3 v 3 format much like we saw at the Olympic Games. Their first game saw them take a 12-6 lead against St Francis. The second match was closely contested and we came away with a 2 point loss against Scantabout. The final match was against a very strong Knightwood side who took the win. A huge well done to all the players!

Thursday 24th November - Hampshire Cup Game

 

On Thursday our 5/6 boys’ football team played a Hampshire Cup match against Sarisbury Juniors. This was a closely fought game which saw both teams head into extra time 2-2.  Sadly Sarisbury snuck a 3rd goal and took the win. Well done to all the players for battling hard until the final whistle - you did Merdon proud! 

Wednesday 7th December - XCountry, Places Leisure

 

This week some of our children took part in the X-Country Championships at Places Leisure. They had to run a 1.5km course and competed against lots of other runners from the Eastleigh and Winchester area. All children gave it their all and some have even qualified for the Hampshire Championships that will be held next year - watch this space!

 

A huge well done to all our runners!
