Primary Schools' Swimming Gala

On Saturday, a combined team of Year 5s and 6s entered the swimming gala at Hertfordshire Sports Village.

The gala included individual races and team relays. Prae Wood put in a strong performance overall with the boys winning the team competition. The girls finished in second place behind STAHS. Medals were awarded to individual race winners and Prae Wood managed a good haul:

Ella - freestyle

Hugo - breaststroke

Ella, Holly, Tilly & Imogen - girls' freestyle relay

Hugo, Will and Matt - boys' medley relay

Well done to all the team. Thank you to our supporters and to Mrs Pinder for marshalling the swimmers into position before their races.

Year 4 High 5 Netball Tournament

Year 4 High 5 Netball Tournament

Our final netball event of the season was a Year 4 tournament, held at Samuel Ryder Academy.

For the team, it was a great opportunity to put all they have been learning over the last two terms into practice. It was clear that significant improvements have been made in their game play and tactical understanding although we do need to work more on our shooting as we did not manage to take advantage of the many opportunities we had in front of the post.

Prae Wood played four pool games against Samuel Ryder, Maple, Sandridge and Garden Fields with 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses. Our only goal came in our win against Sandridge and we all celebrated when Liza scored!

Well done to all involved. Keep practicing over the summer, ready for netball returning in the Autumn term.

Chicks hatch in EYFS

Our Nursery and Reception children have had the exciting opportunity to watch chicks emerge from their eggs this week, housed in an incubator. Once the chicks are old enough, they will leave us to go and live on a local farm.

Cross Country at Gardenfields

Cross Country at Gardenfields
The cross country league came to an end last week with the final race of five taking place at Gardenfields.
 
With its sloped field, this course always provides a challenge as the runners have to climb up the hill three times over the course of the 1100 metre run.  Fortunately, conditions underfoot had improved since race four and the team were more than ready for their final challenge.
 
The Year 6 girls were joined by Millie and Sophie from Year 5, gaining some experience ready for next year.  Next year's girls' team will certainly have a hard act to follow with the girls finishing second overall in the team competition, definitely the best Prae Wood result Mrs Paine has witnessed in her seven years at the school.  As with other races, Tilly and Holly came in together in 10th and 11th, with Cara in 19th , definitely our most improved runner of the season.  Millie came 39th and Sophie 45th.  Ella continued her impressive season with another 1st place finish, her fourth in five races, which saw her awarded the individual series trophy in the large schools (girls) competition.
 
For the boys, Hugo put in one of his best performances to date, finishing 12th.  He was followed by Will in 20th, Eddie in 42nd, Rayan in 52nd, Xav in 53rd and Edward in 55th.  For Xav it was his first race and, like Millie and Sophie, Edward in Year 5 was gaining experience for next year. 
 
Congratulations to Ella and well done to all of the children who have represented the school across the 5 races.  We hope we have inspired the Year 5s to make use of their Daily Mile time to prepare themselves for when the league restarts in September.
