After working on tag rugby in PE this term it was fantastic to take 13 Sparrowhawks to Cashes Green to play a competitive game. I was incredibly impressed with their passing, running with the ball and overall teamwork. A particular well done to those who were playing their first ever tag rugby match.
Well done to the Sparrowhawks who competed for the school netball team after school in a fantastic game on Monday. I was so impressed to see everyone work so hard as a team and played better and better as the game continued.
Well done to the 3 children in Sparrowhawks who represented Gastrells at the Panathalon Challenge on Friday at Stratford Park.
It has been a brilliant week of sport in Sparrowhawks with children representing the school in gymnastics, archery and netball.
The gymnasts performed sensationally at the county finals, showing nerves of steel to finish an impressive 5th overall! Our archery teams travelled to Archway to compete against a number of other schools, we are still awaiting the finals rankings. Finally our netballers beat local rivals Rodborough 13-0 at home in a great team performance.
Lots of children from Sparrowhawks were part of a group who visited the Birmingham Indoor Arena last weekend to watch the British Indoor Athletics. We all had a superb time watching the incredible athletes, testing our own speed and printed our own race bibs! The children even got to meet and have a picture with Katrina Johnson-Thompson, the world Indoor pentathlon champion!
A huge well done to our Y3/4 team who became the Stroud District Netball Champions today at Stratford Park. Everyone involved (those in the picture + Gracie) played superb as a team all day scoring an astonishing 37 goals in total and only conceding 2!

A huge congratulations to our Y3/4 gymnastics team, who on Friday won the Stroud District Key Steps Gymnastics competition at Stratford Park Leisure Centre. Furthermore, with team 2 finishing in 4th place it was a very successful morning of gymnastics. All the children completed a floor routine as well as two vaults.
We are now looking forward to preparing for the county finals!
I am extremely proud of all the children who took part including Fin who took part in the intermediate competition in the afternoon – Mr Muskett
Well done to the 8 Y4’s who represented Gastrells at the Stroud District Sports Hall Athletics on Friday. They all rose to the occasion and performed with great speed and confidence.The teams finished 3rd & 9th and hopefully the experience will stand them in good stead for future competitions.
Last weekend some of Sparrowhawks and other children from Gastrells were given the opportunity to be flag bearers and mascots at Forest Greens home game against Morecambe.
