Sporting Events Past & Present

Hockey Festival 2015

On 4th June Mrs Gaskell took the hockey team to the Hockey Festival at Marjons. This was the teams first experience of matches and indeed of playing on a large pitch. After three games they had developed considerably, playing as a team and fully enjoying the experience. They all said they had learned a great deal and became much more experienced players. Well done to all of you. You represented Laira Green very well.

A letter to Marvin Morgan by Owen Thomas

Dear Marvin

My name is Owen.  On the Monday before Christmas I went for a tour around Argyle with my friend Fabian.  We represented our school, Laira Green Primary.  We were looking forward to seeing Romauld Boco and the other players in the Argyle team.  It was a shame that you were not there.

We also went to GOALS to watch the team train, it was really cool.  Then we went back up to where the players have lunch and we ate with them before a quick tour around Home Park, it was really fun.

For lunch we had pasta, potatoes, bolonnaise, chicken and two doughnuts.  After lunch we saw lots of people getting their shorts signed, so we watched the players for a while.  Soon it was time to go back to the shop and meet my mum who was outside.  That was the end of our tour around Argyle.

Goodbye, I hope you get better soon.

My visit to Argyle by Jack Evans

In December I went to GAOLS with Kaillum, Owen, Fabian and daddy.  We went to watch Plymouth Argyle Football Club and have lunch with them.       After lunch we had two lovely doughnuts, one chocolate, one vanilla, both had sprinkles on them.

Then we went to the ground.  It was raining so we stood in the dug-out.  We met lots of players that day, it was a very busy day.  When I got home I was very tired but I know it was a very special day because not many boys get to do what I did and meet their football team.

My day at Argyle by Kailum Stewart

Me, Jack, Owen and Fabian went to GOALS and then to Plymouth Argyle. At Goals we watched the footballers train.  There was a lot of noise at GOALS because it was very windy.  After a short while we left GOALS and went to the stadium.  We learnt what it takes to be a manager then we had lunch and went to the car park to go home.

A letter about the day by Fabian Rowe

Dear Everyone

I loved going to Argyle because I learnt new things about football and we had lots of food for lunch which was very nice.  It was a fantastic day because I usually only get to see the football players on FIFA 11.  I always try to be Plymouth Argyle when I play on FIFA on my Xbox and we usually win! It was great to see them in real life.  I saw Boco, Hourihan, Jake Cole, Mc Cormick and Alessandra.  I thought we saw Rueben Reid but my friend said he wasn’t there so I’m not sure.  The players showed us around GOALS which was also good.

December 2012 Netball Competition

A warm up netball game was played on the 28th of November to help the netball team get prepared for the big tournament in January 2013 .We played Yealmstone Farm and drew 1-1. We played Montpelier and victoriously won. Also we played College Road but our best game was against Montpelier.

We would like to thank you Mrs Tungate for coaching us, Miss Blake , Ms Frost and Mr Spencer for taking us. All of us are so proud of what we achieved it shows how relationships can help. Being part of it myself I think we did well as we have never played together before.

Harry Wilkinson, Mia Drew, Tia Avent ,Charlotte Fell , Matthew Hirst, Malachi George and me, Mya Tungate are a team and are so happy with our performance. When we arrived all of our mouths dropped in amazement but as we started to play we got better as the day went on. I scored 4 goals but Matthew Hirst scored an amazing long distance shot which made everyone cheer and scream as we won 5 – 0 .

We hope the rest of the team we left behind was thinking of us. Maybe they will get more confident as the weeks go on and will be alongside us in January 2013.

If you would like to join the netball team see Miss Blake. It is a great extra curricular activity for everyone in year 5 and 6. We nearly lost a player when Harry Wilkinson had a nose bleed. The girls thought it was disgusting, whilst the boys went to get a tissue. We know what it is like being in a team and I wouldn’t trade that feeling for anything. We would love to see you all at netball year 5 and 6.

Autumn 2012 Competitions and results

In the Autumn term Laira Green took some of our sporting pupils to cross country events and to a warm up netball tournament. Both in which Laira Green performed exceptionally well with competitors showing great commitment, resilience and team work to represent their school. I hope to see more of this great sporting spirit in the New Year!

The Plymouth School Netball tournament at Marjon has unfortunately been postponed due to flood damage at Marjon.  I am waiting for a new date which will hopefully be at the start of February.  We are hoping for the week after Nethercott so we can take a full team! –

Football tournament at Goals for years 5 and 6: This tournament will take place on Tuesday 29th January with the finals on the following day, if we come top of our group. Good luck to the Football team!
