Team: Alice, Tabitha, Poppy, Isobelle, Mia, Lea, Phoebe, Daisy and Shonali
The year 4 girls, and Poppy and Shonali from year 3, had a most enjoyable and exciting first match against Maidwell. We fielded confidently with some great bowling and an excellent catch from Alice. During the first innings all the girls hit well with half rounders from all the girls and full rounders from Alice and Phoebe. During the second batting innings Phoebe scored another great rounder and Mia scored two with some fabulous hitting.
The final score was Stoneygate 20, Maidwell 12.
The player of the match was Mia for excellent fielding at second post and some fantastic rounders.
Special mention to Alice for spot on bowling, Poppy and Lea for working backstop so well and Phoebe for 2 great rounders and running so fast!
Brilliant girls, well done, Mrs Ward
Year 1 enjoyed their first swimming lesson this term. Yeah! the sun was shining for us.
Let’s hope the weather continues to be warm so we can go in the pool next week.
Congratulations to Leicester City FC on your amazing achievement from everyone at Stoneygate School.
“Good Luck Leicester City”
Colts B pairs cricket v Stamford Junior School AWAY
The Colts played a most enjoyable match in sunshine, rain, sleet and biting cold.
We batted first and due to some strong Stamford bowling we scored a modest total of 145 (45 runs). Lucas H (captain) batted well and our best pair was Dylan and Freddie. At one point we suffered a hat-trick of clean bowled wickets!
When Stamford batted they were always ahead of the required rate and they won comfortably.
However, we had some good moments in the field. Lucas fielded and captained well and got a catch and a run out with a direct hit from Atticus’s bowling. He was awarded ‘Man of the Match’.
Ed.B. got a clean bowled wicket and Ed.N. took a nice catch. Will and Atticus were solid as our wicket-keeper (they took half the innings each).
Our bowling was a little erratic and this is an area for the team to work on in the coming weeks.
This week we have been observing our caterpillars more closely, they have grown lots already.
On Wednesday Mike Major a R.N.L.I volunteer visited Year 1 to talk to us about the life of Grace Darling. We enjoyed learning about her heroic rescue and how her bravery has helped the RNLI today. We had the opportunity to play a quiz and dress up to act out the dramatic rescue.
Afterwards we were able to spend some pocket money buying items from the RNLI. The money raised from this,alongside a cheque donation from Stoneygate will go to this fantastic voluntary organisation.
Wednesday 20th April
On Wednesday 20th April the U13 B team played Witham at rounders. We were playing until everyone was out and because Stoneygate batted first we only had one innings as our team were in for nearly an hour! There was some strong fielding from our team and a few catches. The score was 23 – 10 1/2 to us. Player of the match was Milly Bairstow, special mention to Hattie Tyler. Well done to the whole team!!
Wednesday 27th April
On Wednesday the 27th April the U13 /11/10 B team played Bilton Grange. We played 30 good balls per team for each innings. Stoneygate batted first and we scored an impressive score of 5 1/2 considering they were very tight on their fielding. When we fielded we stumped some of their players out and Freya Astill and Antonia Veary both had catches. When it came to the second innings we scored another fantastic score of 5 making our final score 10 1/2. We fielded well again limiting Bilton to only 6 rounders! Player of the match to Antonia Veary and special mention to Tasia Dhanoa. Well done to the whole team!
