KS2 Sports Day 2022

2022 was the return of the parents for Sports Day this year and was a resounding success! All throughout the day (and yesterday) KS2 were competing in their houses to win points to win the cup. They were competing in events such as; long jump, standing jump, discus and shotput. In the afternoon the parents had the joys of watching all KS2 year groups do their fun races quickly followed by the relays. The scores on the doors were as follows

1st - Cook - 181 points

2nd - Fiennes - 136 points 

3rd - Sherman - 132 points

4th - Livingstone - 110 points

Congratulations to everyone in Cook who smashed every event out the field into the park!

Preston Primary Football Tournament May 2022

Preston Primary Tournament May 2022

For the first time ever Preston hosted a football tournament which was contested by 8 teams; Preston A,B and C, Swanmead A & B, Milford, Kingfisher & Hambridge. There were some fantastic goals and some lovely team play.  All 3 Preston sides progressed to the semi finals as well as Milford, meaning there was a Preston derby in the semi of which Preston B were victorious over Preston A. Preston C unfortunately lost to Milford. In the final Milford put on a dominating display defeating our Preston B team convincingly but a well deserved victory in the end.

Congratulations Milford!

Fantastic effort from Marcy who took Beattie around the beat boxes!

Primary Stars Girls' Football Tournament - March 2022

This year, our girls at Preston Primary we’re chosen to represent Yeovil at the Primary Stars event in Southampton. This event was run by Saints South West and we were chosen by our friends at Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust to represent Yeovil. 


We came up against some very tough opposition in Woking, Southampton and Portsmouth, unfortunately losing all 3 games but playing some great football in the process. As we were knocked out early we were able to play Crawley and Reading in friendlies and won them both!  All was not lost as the girls managed to win the Fair Play award and won a drinks bottle each. The team had photos taken next to the Premier League trophy (which will have red ribbons next year πŸ˜‰)

 

Massive well done to the girls and thank you to YTCST for choosing us!

Somerset FA Girls County Finals 

This time it was the girls chance to shine, the girls did have less games to play as a few teams decided to pull out, which is a shame.  It didn’t stop the girls from performing very well! They managed to get all the way to the final where we unfortunately lost 1-0 to Swanmead, who progressed through to the regional finals. Player of the tournament was Shekinah who was everywhere on the pitch whilst playing central midfield, winning every tackle she attempted!

Congratulations girls well deserved 2nd in Somerset!

2nd best girls team in Somerset!! ⚽️

Somerset FA County Finals (Boys)

After another complicated year we’ve made it to another County Final Competition! Which is a fantastic achievement by all involved. We arrived at Strode College not knowing anything about the opposition we were about to face. The boys played 5 games starting off slow losing 3-0 in the first game but bringing it back to win 3/5 games. Unluckily the boys finished 3rd in the group therefore not qualifying for the regional finals. Some great football on display and Henry S was the star man as he notched 2 goals and played very well in a slightly new position.

Congratulations boys you have done yourselves proud!

Preston Primary vs Countess Gytha

December 2021

We played a Y4 team and a Y5 team. 
A lot of players playing for the first time ever in a Preston Primary shirt, doing the school proud!

Our Y5’s had a tough game but came out 5-2 winners with man of the match Jacob P scoring twice.

The Y4’s also won but way more convincingly, 9-2 being the end result. We couldn’t pick a man of the match as the whole team performed very well.

Well done to all those involved. Hopefully more games to be played in the new year!

Year 5 vs Year 6 game November 2021

Friday 19th November, Preston Primary hosted our Y5 vs Y6 annual game. After a few years of no games we were happy to be back! The game began with Year 6 dominating possession, however it wasn’t long before Year 5 were penned into their own half for a solid 10 minutes. It didn’t take Year 6 long until they went 1-0 up. A couple of substitutes later and Year 5 grew in confidence, after going 3-0 down just before half time Year 5 managed to claw one back to make the score 3-1 at half time. As the second half commenced Year 5 started to dominate and went on to make the score 3-2 and gave themselves a chance to equalise. Unfortunately Year 6’s experience saw them regain their 2 goal lead and took the game by storm by eventually winning 5-2. Some inspiring performances on show but both Ollie H (Y5) and Irah (Y6) both playing in the centre back role, played impeccably and won a much deserved man of the match!

Congratulations to all the boys involved and to Year 6 on their much deserved win!

Girls ESFA tournament 

Today our wonderful girl footballers took part in a girls tournament (unfortunately only 2 teams turned up so wasn’t much of a tournament) but they had fun nonetheless. We ran out 4-0 winners after a tough 16 minute game. The girls were also taken for fun sessions in between the two halves. Big thank you to the students at Westfield for helping run the event.
