KAS football league - Autumn 2018
We have a new football team set up this year who have joined the local KAS football league. Although they have only had 2 training sessions so far, one of our teams had their first match last night against St Michael's and drew 1-1
Year 4 played fantastically in the football tournament on 19th June. We took 2 teams, one of which came 2nd overall in their group following 5 matches. The highlight was a Thorley Hill win of 6-0, helped with a hat-trick from Harry. Well done team Thorley Hill!
Well done to our Year 5 cricket team who represented the school at Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club just before half term. Although we didn't win the match, our team played fantastically against others who had put out teams of Year 6 children. An all-girls team are heading to the same competition in a few weeks time.
Speed Stacking Competition
Year 4 entered a digital competition of 'Speed stacking', where they had to complete a sequence of cup stacking as fast as possible. They all practised and recorded their best times, which were then sent off and ranked with other Bishop's Stortford schools. I am very proud to announce that team Thorley Hill ranked in first place! The children with the fastest times will be receiving certificates and a special mention in assembly, but unfortunately are unable to attend the county finals due to their trip to Mersea.
On the 23rd April a group of Year 1 and Year 2 children went to Birchwood High School to take part in a dance festival. They learnt a whole dance routine to 'Under the Sea' from 'The Little Mermaid' in just one afternoon and confidently performed it to a large audience of parents.
On the 19th March our cheerleading team, the 'Thorley Hill Tornadoes' presented a routine at a local competition. They were fantastic and won 2nd place, only narrowly missing out on 1st!
Year 3 & 4 Gymnastics Competition
Congratulations to the Year 2 and Year 3 Gymnastic teams who participated in a competition at the Bishop's Stortford Gymnastic Club on 28th Feb and 7th March.
The Year 3 results have just been confirmed with our team coming in 4th place. Congratulations Team Thorley Hill!
