Handball: November 2018
A group of Year 6 pupils attended a Stroud School Games Handball training and tournament on Friday 30th November. They had a great day.
It was the first time to enter this competition and Mrs Westwood came back inspired and threatened to run a Handball Club in Spring 2019!
The children found their positions and were able to hold their own against some more experienced teams. They came 2nd in their group which was a remarkable achievement and definitely proved their sporting talent. Well done.
We have just heard that Thrupp School has once again been successful in gaining
School Games Gold Award. This recognises the good sporting opportunities at Thrupp plus the participation of our children. Congratulations to you all. We have lots going on this year.
Wow! What a hot one.
We had a wonderful time at our annual International Sports Day.
The children in 12 countries, representing 4 different continents, rotated around 12 different activities. These included; badminton, tennis, distance run, croquet, rugby, football ......
Congratulations to Chestnut Tree Team, who were representing Europe who won the first place medals.
Thank you children for making this a wonderful day and the support from parents was superb, thank you.
Cricket Club Trip to County Ground
Year 5/6 Cricket Club members had a wonderful day at Cheltenham on 18.7.18. They saw a number of wickets fall whilst watching Gloucestershire play Sussex in a 4 day game. At lunch they were invited on to the pitch to show off their fielding skills. A great day was had.
Thrupp School Cricket Club were treated to a wonderful day at Cheltenham Cricket Festival.
We travelled to Cheltenham to watch the fixture between Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. Our day was spent watching county cricket, testing our bowling speed on the bowling tunnel, having some coaching sessions and eating ice cream. A great day out was had by all. We left the match with Gloucestershire very much in control.
