Sports Day 2021
Our much anticipated Preston Primary Sports day was not the same without our lovely parents this year but we still managed to make it a success. KS1 had lots of fun doing all sorts of races. For the first time Y3, 4 and 5 had their Sports Day in the morning and afternoon doing many different events including; discus, shot put and long jump. (photos below) All the scores were added up throughout the day and eventually crowning Cook our 2021 Sports Day Champions! 🏆🔵
Well done to all participants.
After missing out on lots of sporting events over the last year or so we were very grateful to finally have Wimbledon back for 2021. A big thank you to Mr Bourne for making this happen. Congratulations to our finalists (listed below) and more so the winners from Y3 Millie and Owen, Y4 Pippa and Oscar, Y5 Maisie and Jamie and finally Y6 Jess and Louix!
Well done all! 🎾🏆
Preston Primary Girl’s Football Team Excel At County Final
A brilliant team performance saw our girl’s football team reach the final of the Girl’s County Football Tournament, a level 3 School Games event played in Weston Super Mare this January 2020.
The team were in superb form during the group stages where they clinched three wins and two draws. In achieving these results, the girls progressed to the semi - final in style.
Once in the semi final the team stepped up the level of their performance once more against very good opposition and after both teams had drawn 0-0 the match progressed to a penalty shootout. Goalkeeper Jess saved brilliantly during this to ensure that Preston Primary moved into the final and here, against a very good Trinity Primary school team from Taunton, our girls suffered their first defeat of the tournament by three goals to one. The result means that we have been placed as 2nd out of 172 schools in Somerset for football.
All of our players performed extremely well and team manager Mr Watkinson and all at Preston Primary are extremely proud of every one of our team. Well done girls!
