Last Saturday, the Year 5 and 6 swimming team went to Hinckley Leisure Centre to represent St Margaret's in the Primary School Gala. We had a super start with Sam Wa (Yr6) setting the pace with a super breaststoke heat, quickly followed by Kara who stepped up to swim for Year 6 despite being in Year 5. Next was the backstroke event for Year 6 where Sam Wi and Charlotte whizzed down the pool. Harry and Lucy were super in the front crawl and then it was the turn of Year 5. Isaac, Phoebe, Joseph, Jasmine Gerrod and Megan were superb swimmers for Year 5 shortly before the relay teams took to the pool. Miss Wyllie gave us wine gums to boost our energy before the finals began. In the finals, we had some fantastic results: Sam Wi 4th, Harry 1st, Lucy 4th, Jasmine 4th, Joseph 4th, Megan 2nd, Boys relay 3rd. Our team result was superb with an overall 3rd place for small schools. Well done everybody!

All the children raced superbly and we had the best set of results we’ve ever had! Well done to all children who attended and thank you to the parents who put up with the weather to ensure their children could compete!
Next Primary Schools race ~ Saturday 2nd March 2019
KS1 & KS2 Kurling
Our two teams headed off to Green Towers on Monday to participate in the schools Kurling competition. Many of the children became very skilled ‘kurlers’ during the afternoon despite it not being an easy activity to be ‘on target’ with! Roy in KS1 and Evan in KS2 showed particular skill! It was a super afternoon; the KS2 children narrowly missed out on the final rounds by just 1 point, whilst the KS1 team went on to win! A fantastic effort! Well done! Thank you to the parents who volunteered and support on the day.
Don't worry if you haven't handed in an attendance slip ~ just turn up on the day in plenty of time to park and find St Margaret's!

Back in April, our team of 6 Year 5 and 6 children won the local area Sportsability competition at Green Towers and therefore qualified to represent Hinckley and Bosworth at the county Summer Championships on Friday 29th June. We set off early and travelled all the way to Uppingham, where we had a fantastic day joining in with the Opening Ceremony (featuring Paralympian Shot Putter Sam Ruddock) and taking part in the Sportsability Competition against 8 other schools, each representing their area of Leicestershire. The children were fantastic - giving their all at each of the different sports they played, ranging from curling to target boccia! At the end of the games, we were awarded the highly-valued 'Spirit of the Games' trophy for our fantastic determination, honesty, respect, passion, self-belief and teamwork! Well done to Sam, Warren, Paige, Lucy, Emily and Mia - Mrs Ibbitson and Mrs Shilladay were incredibly proud of you for representing our school and local area so brilliantly!
On Thursday 14th June, 28 children represented St Margaret's at the annual Area Sports athletics event. We had such a fabulous day and some really brilliant results! Best of all, the children were such a credit to the school ~ their behaviour and team spirit made us very proud! The Year 4 children had a super start: girls (Holly, Megan, Alarna & Jasmine) won their relay heat by a long way which saw them through to the finals, George came 6th in the long distance and Megan came 3rd overall in the sprints. A super start when there were 38 schools there! Year 5 carried on the successes: the boys (Harry, Ben, Noah, Toby & Elliot) won the overall shield for points after coming first in the relay, Ben came 3rd in the sprint and Harry added extra points by winning the sprint! The Year 5 girls put in a super effort; Ruby's howler throw was fantastic! The Year 6 children had a successful afternoon. The girls won their relay heat by a long way and then came 2nd in the final. Gracie was top 10 in the long distance and Kirsty and Kasey both put in great performances in the sprints. Maisie and Lillie did well at the howler and long jump ~ we're still awaiting the results of these. Year 6 boys were the last to race, coming 3rd in their relay heat, Maddox and Zane completing great howler and long jump entries and Henry and Sam scoring points in the sprints. Thank you to all the support we had for this event; it was a super competition for the children who really were fabulous.
Cross Country ~ Saturday 3rd February 2018
It was super to see such a number of children turn up for the cross country this morning despite the rain and early flurry of snow. It's clear that our children love the mud! Throughout the morning we saw some fantastic results, beginning with the Year 3 girls who didn't take long to finish the course ~ Kate (3rd) , Alice (8th) and Lola all came in the top 30! We saw more great running from the Year 4 children and an excellent 5th place finish for George. Year 5 clearly wanted to spend time in the mud before racing; Amy began with trying to rescue all the worms that had come out in the rain (a never ending battle) and the boys enjoyed mud 'squelching' before being reminded that they were actually there for a reason! We had 10 children race for Year 5 which was brilliant; Elliot flew around the course and came in 2nd place. Our final race was for the Year 6 boys (Joseph and Henry) who were brilliant after quite a wait in the cold! Well done to all our children and thank you to their parents for bringing them. The next and final race in the schools competition is on the 3rd March at Bosworth Academy, Desford.
Year 2 football tournament
On Tuesday, ten children took part in a football tournament held at St Margaret’s. Six schools came to participate and our team had a super afternoon playing against other schools and showing off what they had been practising at school with Mr Clafferty. It was brilliant to see so many talented young footballers in one place! St Margaret’s won their games in the rounds leading up to the finals and then in the play-offs for 1st and 2nd place, due to some brilliant team work and some fancy footwork, they won, 4-0! Super play Year 2, tournament winners! Thank you parents for your support; the children enjoyed their afternoon!
Boccia & New Age Kurling
On Monday, a group of enthusiastic children from KS1 and KS2 represented St Margaret’s at the Boccia and Kurling tournament at Green Towers in Hinckley. The children had a chance to learn a new sport in school, before putting their skills to the test against a number of other schools, in what was a very enjoyable afternoon. Boccia (a target ball sport), was where the KS1 children excelled, whilst the KS2 children showed great skill in the Kurling ~ all of the children enjoyed being able to push the Kurling stones out across the hall floor to aim at the target though! The children had a really enjoyable afternoon and worked really hard together as a team. Well done team and thank you parents and staff for your support!
On Saturday, an energetic bunch of children represented us at the Prestwold Cross country. A number of our parents and children had to park some distance away from Prestwold and walk to the event due to an incident on the roads causing huge tailbacks ~ super dedication and I'm amazed the children still had the energy to run! It was a very busy morning with a large number of children in the races but it was super that it didn't put our children off! It was great to see a number of new runners this week and we're always impressed with how the older children take the lead and ensure that a sense of fun is injected into the event. We had some super results on the day, including a top 10 placing for Elliot in Year 5! Thank you to the children and parents who came. A super effort from all the children - well done!
An energetic (and rather enthusiastic) group of Year 5 children represented St Margaret’s at the Sportshall Athletics at Green Towers today. The competition was tough but the children were fantastic and all put in their best efforts in what was a complicated series of events. The boys team showed some real skill in the track events and the girls had some super team work. It was lovely to see how well they all supported each other. The children had a great morning and we are proud of all of them! Thank you to the parents who gave up their time to transport and support us as well.
Well done Year 5!
Cross Country Saturday 30th September 2017
On Saturday, 21 children represented us at the first cross country race of the season at Prestwold Hall. Despite it being fairly soggy underfoot, the children were all superb! There was a huge turnout for the races this year. Hundreds of children were competing which meant that each race had a busy start, with the usual pushing and shoving and even the odd lost shoe, but all our children worked hard to stay upright and run through it all! Fantastic results from all of them! Well done!
30th October 2016 Primary Schools Cross Country
We had another great turn out for the primary schools cross country competition on Saturday which was the busiest one we’ve seen so far! The Year 3s all worked hard in their races and we had some super results from them. The Year 4 races were incredibly busy with approximately 300 children in each race ~ it was tough going! Year 5 and 6 worked well in their races and should be proud of their results. Every time these children attend the cross country, their attitude, behaviour and sportsmanship makes us incredibly proud. Well done all of you!
Next race: Saturday 26th November

2nd October 2016 ~ Leicestershire Primary School Cross Country Competition
On Sunday 2nd October 2016, 23 children from KS2 took part in the cross country competition at Prestwold Hall, near Loughborough. The Year 3 children were first to race and, after a warm up and explanation from Joe & Ellie in Year 6, they ran their socks off! We had some super results; a special well done to George who came in the Top 20! The Year 4s raced after Year 3 and again, the children really put in their best efforts. Elliot shot off around the course and came in 4th place, winning a medal! The Year 5 children were super in their races and returned to the team with smiles which, after some of the nerves, we were pleased to see! Last to race were the Year 6 children. We had a good turn out of girls and Ellie came in the top 20. The boys race was a bit of a contest between Joe and Thomas and they both came in the top 15 which was superb.
Well done to all the children who took part.
Area Sports July 2016
On Tuesday, 29 children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to Saffron Lane Athletics Stadium in Leicester to compete in the annual area sports athletics competition against 16 other schools. Erin, Isaac, Kaitlin and Thomas started us off with their long distance races. They all did superbly and we even had a 2nd place overall for Thomas. The relays were a learning curve for the Year 3&4 team. They really tried their best ~ especially Henry who ran up the track to collect the relay baton after a member of the team fell over, and then ran all the way back round the track doing his leg as well as the injured persons. Well done Henry! In the relay, the Year 5 girls and boys teams and the Year 6 girls and boys teams all made it through to the finals after competing in some tough heats. They were super in the finals ~ all four teams came 4th! Isabelle, Connor, Harrison and Alex competed in the long jump, the boys clearly had a spring in their step as Connor took 1st place and Harrison 2nd. Issy, George M, George P and Evie competed in the howler and made us very proud. The sprint races were our last set of events and the children were fantastic. Their results in the heats were as follows:
Megan ~ 3rd, Henry ~ 3rd, Ellie ~ 1st, Joe ~ 3rd, Eva ~ 1st, Evan ~ 3rd, Kasey ~ 1st, Sam ~ 3rd,
Tegan ~ 6th, Harry ~ 3rd, Abi ~ 1st, Jake ~ 5th
Some of the children got through to the finals, again we had superb results:
Henry ~ 4th, Kasey (in the Year 4 race) ~ 1st, Kasey (who also raced in the Year 5 race!) ~ 4th,
Joe ~ 3rd, Evan ~ 2nd, Sam ~ 4th, Harry P ~ 4th, Abi ~ 2nd.
The final team results were superb; the Year 5 boys team were 2nd overall.
The whole St Margaret’s team took overall 1st place in the small schools category.
Well done to all the children who took part. You represented our school superbly; were the best behaved there by a long way and you should be proud of yourselves! Thank you also to the staff and adults who came and helped and supported us.
Leicestershire and Rutland 2015-16 School Games - Change4Life Festival
A team of Year 4 children represented Hinckley and Bosworth in the Change4Life Festival yesterday, as part of the final event in the Leicestershire and Rutland 2015-16 School Games. We had a fantastic day with our team participating against 9 other Leicestershire teams in 6 events - spiderweb, parachute challenge, blindfold challenge, food plate, Mr Wolf and sharks and fish. We also enjoyed a brilliant opening and closing ceremony, with special guests from, the sporting world including Paralympic athlete Sam Ruddock and local, Blaby-born, British Cycling Talent Team cyclist Grace Garner. At the end of the day it was announced that the Hinckley and Bosworth teams had won this year's School Games overall!
KS2 Sports Day June 2016
Today, all the children in KS2 took part in our annual sports day. The children competed in a range of activities which made up our carousel. After that, they had the opportunity to compete in some sprint races ~ we have some very fast children at our school! The children were superb. The winning house for KS2 sports day was Kestrels. The children who won 'Gold' in the sprints were:
Year 6 ~ Ben & Abi
Year 5 ~ Joe & Ellie
Year 4 ~ Sam & Kasey
Year 3 ~ Ben & Harriet
Well done to all the children who took part! The scores will be added together to KS1's total scores and we will have an overall winning house!
Quadkids Competition Tuesday 7th June 2016
On Tuesday, our Quadkids team went to the next level of the competition, following on from their win a couple of weeks ago. It was a hot day but they performed absolutely superbly and scores were even higher than last time. We are awaiting the final results from Bosworth Academy but our children did well! Well done Ben, Tyler, Eva, Isabelle, Harry, Joe, Tegan and Ellie and thank you to the adults who supported us on the day. Final results and photos will be up on the school website as soon as they have been forwarded to us.
Sportsman of the day: Ben for persevering and completing his races, despite being poorly!
School Games Level 2 Hockey Tournament
On Wednesday, the Year 6 hockey team went to Heathfield High School to compete in a tournament. The weather was appalling but it didn’t dampen their enthusiasm. St Margaret’s quickly took control of the first game, with a goal from Evan, shortly followed by a goal from Isabelle and then a hat trick from George M. The second game was even better, mainly down to George scoring another 8 goals with help from Evan, Jess and Owen. Evan scored the 9th goal of the game which put us well into the lead. The third game was much tougher, with a much rougher level of play but St Margaret’s still played superbly and with a goal from Jess and another two from George, we finished with a draw. The end result was a very well deserved first place for St Margaret’s, who will be going through to the next round at Dixie Grammar. The children’s behaviour and sportsmanship was a credit to the school. Well done Evan (C), George M, Owen, Elliot, Isabelle and Jess and thank you Mrs Fairchild and Mrs Carey for helping out.
Man of the Match ~ George M.
Tag Rugby ~ Wednesday 20th April 2016
Ten year 6 pupils took part in the Hinckley and Bosworth School Sports Tag Rugby tournament. They played superbly, winning 3 out of our 4 pool matches. Our high scores got us into the semi- final where we beat Burbage Juniors 5-4. Unfortunately, we lost out by one try in the final to St Peters, meaning we were runners up & took second place overall. We had a fantastic afternoon at Bosworth Academy and the children all supported each other well. They were a credit to the school and many of the staff commented on how well they played and also how well they encouraged other teams. Well done to our super rugby stars: Rhianna, Izzy, Abi, Evan, Elliot, Ben, Guy, Joseph, Finlay and Jake. A big thank you goes to Mr Walton, Mr Cox and Mrs Fairchild who helped to transport the children, and also to the many vocal parents who supported us from the touchline. An even bigger thank you to Mr Cox who was our team "coach" and helped organise warm ups, team-talks and substitutions.
Well done all!
