Laira Green sporting events
Lipson Family Rounders tournament 2018
The mixed team of boys and girls from Year 5 and 6 trooped down to Lipson School’s field again after a tiring Sports practice on Thursday 17th May.
We played in the area tournament and managed to win the event beating Lipson Vale Primary and Prince Rock Primary along the way.
The team played together really well with on field coaching and support given by team captain Xander.
A terrific performance from all the team – well done
Year 3 and 4 Girls’ Football Festival
On Tuesday 24th April, some of the girls from Year 3 and 4 took part in a Football Festival at Marine Academy. Teams from other schools in Plymouth also took part and we finished in third place with medals to prove it.
Our thanks must go to the organisers, also to Mrs Frost who looked after us and was chief coach, also to Mr Spencer our trusty mini bus driver. A great day was had by all and the girls came back delighted with their medals. Mrs Frost said they were very beautifully behaved, great sports and were a credit to Laira Green School. Well done to all involved as usual – now please get the kit washed and back into school!
Lipson Primary School Hockey Festival
Once again our children ventured out for their first hockey tournament with other local schools. Most of the children in the squad are members of the hockey club that meets after school every Friday evening; they are always on the look out for new members children!
As a couple of members couldn’t make the event we had to draft in some children that had never played hockey before; a big thank you for helping out at such short notice!
Despite this early set back even before we had begun, the team performed brilliantly and their confidence and team play improved throughout the event.
We were beaten in the semi finals but still managed a very creditable third place overall which was fantastic. Thanks must go to the hockey club leaders from Plymouth Argyle, the parents that came to support the team, but especially to all of the players that gave up their own time to represent the school. Well done to all of you.
