We received some great news this week! One of our year 4 students has been picked to play for the Tower Hamlets Year 4 Tag Rugby Dream Team! This is a fantastic individual achievement! Referees at the year 4 tag rugby competition, that Blue Gate competed at earlier in the term, selected children who showed a high level of skill and ability on the day to play together at the year 5/6 competition. We are very proud and excited for him and hope he enjoys himself on the day and gives it his best effort! Well done!
We had 8 of our year 5 students represent Blue Gate Juniors at the Tower Hamlets Mini Orange Competition that was held at Bethnal Green Gardens. The students played on tennis courts that were shorter than full sized courts so they have to be more accurate with their ball placement and have quick reaction times when returning the ball. They all played very well on the day and had a lot of fun. Great Work!
Our year 5 hockey team competed at their cluster competition on Tuesday at Sir John Cass Secondary School. They all played very well and tried their hardest at a sport that is new to them. They placed third overall on the day and showed great sportsmanship. Well Done!
We sent a year 4 mixed Tag Rugby team to the Tower Hamlets Tag Rugby competition at Millwark Rugby Club to compete against other school in the area. They won 5 of their 6 group stage games meaning they made it through to the quarter finals. They played very well but sadly lost 2:1. Overall they scored 21 tries on the day. A special mention goes to Ihsaan for being captain and man of the match. Great work and sportsmanship throughout the day!
We are very proud at Blue Gate Fields Juniors this week as one of our students travelled to Barcelona during the half term holiday to represent our school and the whole borough in the Tower Hamlets Primary District Football Team. He played several games, visited a football stadium and trained with Spanish teams to improve his skills, knowledge and abilities in football. Well done!
