Achievements

Three teams from Golden Valley walked across to Nailsea School for the Year 5 and 6 Football Tournament. We took two boys teams and a girls team as well. The girls performed extremely well, coming third in their group. However, they were unbeaten in all of the games. The boys were also successful in their performance with one team managing to qualify to the semi-finals, only to lose out through the heartbreak of penalties. 

 

It was a successful day for all the children involved as they were able to showcase their footballing talents. Well done to all.

Year 6 Quadkids

 

Children from Year 6 took part in an athletics event against other schools in North Somerset.  The children all competed in the 4 events: 75m Sprint, 600m run, standing jump and vortex throw. All of the children gave 100% and pushed themselves to do their best.  We were particularly impressed how they all tackled the 600m run (3 laps of track). They kepy going to run the whole way and even managed a sprint for the final stretch.  Well done!

Rounders

Rugby Tournament

A squad of 12 boys and girls from Year 5 represented GV at the North Rugby Finals. The team played some challenging matches which tested both their skills and team work.

The team showed determination and resilience and their skills improved with each match. They demonstrated great team spirit, taking it in turns to be off the pitch and encouraging each other throughout. In the quarter finals we lost against the team that went on to win the whole tournament. The team should be very proud of their achievements. Well done!

The A team sailed through the first few games, scoring 4/2, 3/0, 5/1 and then 4/2 in the semi-finals. Unfortunately we were beaten in the finals by Portishead Primary, who played brilliantly. However, we were delighted to receive our silver medals and go through to the level 3 competition in April, competing against the best teams from Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Bristol and North Somerset.

There were some very close events and nail biting moments and it was super to see TEAM GV in their new kit (with thanks to the GVSA), supporting their peers compete. Although GV did not finish in the top 3, all participants should be very proud of themselves. With thanks to Mrs Pinkney and Mrs Jones for volunteering to join us for this event.

North Somerset Level 2 Tag Rugby Finals

 

Yesterday (Wednesday 11th March) 11 children from Years 3-6 travelled to the Hand Stadium in Clevedon for the Level 2 Tag Rugby competition. It was amazing to be one of 25 schools participating-so there were over 300 young participants in attendance. After a warm up and an event briefing we began our matches. There were 3 schools in our group; Trinity, Mead Vale and Golden Valley. Our first match was against Mead Vale, it was very close with a final result of 3-2 to Mead Vale. Next up we played Trinity, after a massive effort from all of our players we were defeated 5-1. The teams then congregated back together and  2 'School Games Values' wristbands were awarded within each team. The 'determination' wristband was awarded to Lewis and the Respect wristband was awarded to Dylan. Our squad then went into the final 16 for a knockout competition. We had an exciting and very close match with Herons Moor. Sadly we narrowly lost the match 4-2. A huge well done to all our players for fantastic effort and support of each other. The Golden Valley squad then showed a wonderful sense of community to support our local rivals Grove who were having lots of success in the tournament. Our support (and their very strong squad) carried them all the way through to the final during which Grove defeated St Martins in a very close and exciting match! A huge well done to all the Golden Valley team; Holly, Katie, Zara, Amy, Lewis, Harvey, Josh, Jake, Kieron, Henry and Dylan.

Netball Tournament

On Saturday, 7th March, 17 children from Golden Valley came along to Nailsea School to compete in the North Somerset Netball Tournament.

We took two teams, and all of the children played brilliantly, demonstrating excellent team spirit and sporting attitude. As always, the children showed a strong competitive nature, but an equally strong sense of fairness. Our B team played well against some tough competition, and should be very proud of their achievements.

Our A team sailed through the first stage of the competition, achieving scores of 8-0, 6-2, 9-0. In the quarter finals, we fought valiantly against a strong team from Fairfield, winning 8-5. The semi-final was an easier win, with a score of 6-0 and we then worked hard to beat Yeo Moor with a score of 7-2 in the finals.

The children were delighted with the result and are greatly looking forward to the next stage of the competition in April. Here, we will be playing against the best teams from North Somerset, Bath and North-East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

We wish them luck!
