Last week 4 children from year 5 were selected to attend the Sports Leaders conference in Wellingborough. Over 100 children from other schools were there and the intention of the day was for them to learn sports leadership techniques and try out some new inclusive sports such as goal ball, sitting volley ball and new age curling.

During this conference the children also heard a talk and completed a training session with a GB footballing Paralympian. He told his us his heart breaking but inspirational story, and then stayed to give out autographs and have photographs with all children. Coby, Megan, Erin and Cameron were exceptional throughout. They had a wonderful time and can’t wait to put everything into action as they become Irchester Sports Leaders in the very near future. 


This week, Irchester students took part in 2 sporting competitions. The first was a year 5/6 netball tournament at Wollaston school. Only 3 teams were in attendance so we played everybody twice. The 8 children involved, played with great determination and spirit, and finished the tournament in first place, winning on goal difference. A big congratulations go to Orla (captain), Demi, Libby, Penny, Mattie, Caiden, Archie and Jaan.

Following on from the success on the netball court, came a very impressive victory at a large year 3 and 4 hockey tournament at Wrenn Academy. 6 children took part, and with their hard work and passion, won all of their games. This exceptional performance means that they are officially the best school hockey team in East Northants, and in July, will represent the district in a level 3 competition – the first competition of its kind, that Irchester School have ever qualified for. A huge well done to Kye (Captain), Ronnie, Fenn, Hannah, Hazel and Katie.
