Years 5 and 6 Cross Country

Six Year 5 and 6 runners braved the weather and mud on Tuesday 22nd October to compete in the Furness area cross country event held at Furness Academy.  Well done to Eddie and Ross in Year 5, finishing 13th and 16th respectively.  Year 6's all finished towards the front of the field  - well done Matthew, Merryn, Charlotte and Carrie.  An extra congratulations to Carrie who finished 7th overall and will go on to represent Burlington School at the county finals later in the year!
It was tempting to make the children run home after we saw how much mud they had splashed up their legs and backs!

Years 3 & 4 hockey tournament

On Friday 18th October our two hockey teams played  in a tournament at Dowdales.  The teams were mixed boys and girls.  The year 3 team played extremely well for their first time and I'm sure they will hone their skills further before next year's tournament.  Well done Year 4's for winning both their matches 7-0 and 4-0, reaching the final and finishing in a very close 2nd place.  There were lots of smiles and fantastic sportsmanship displayed when winning and losing.

After School Sports Clubs:

The after - school sports clubs are well underway with good attendance in all sessions.
I will pop around with the camera soon and put some photos on the blog.
The circus skills session on Wednesdays looks like a fun - especially the devil sticks! Thanks to Brian for doing such an excellent job.
The gymnasts are all working hard on their routines for the Keysteps competitions later in the year - I'm sure they will look amazing in their new leotards.
Our netballers are working hard on their defending and attacking techniques - they will be playing their first match of the season soon.
Tom is enjoying his Multi Sport sessions on Fridays - and the children are always keen to get to his club!
If your child would like to join any of these clubs then please just contact school.  They are all free apart from Multi -Sports (but it is v.good value!).

Small Schools Football League Burlington V Broughton

Team: Ed, Ross, Andrew, Harvey, Jacob, Bryn and Ella.

Score: Burlington 2    Broughton 3

A close game with both sides fairly evenly matched in ability.  After a nervous start and 2 goals down, Burlington picked up their pace allowing Team Captain Ross to deliver 2 goals to equalise.
Broughton just managed to sneak a goal in towards the end.
An exciting game to watch.
Well done Ella for such a fierce defence!
Well done everyone for displaying a good sporting attitude.
