Netball: 17th May – Barley Close – Home – Win 7-1

Great team work secured a good win for Tynings against Barley Close. Great shooting by Libby with support from Rebecca in first quarter put Tynings ahead 4-0. Tynings kept their lead and worked hard not to concede any goals by making some great interceptions. In the end the match finished 7-1. Well done to Leo who was voted best player by Barley Close.

Modified Triathlon

Year 6 Bronze Ambassadors ran a fantastic afternoon of ‘Modified Triathlon’ for year 4 yesterday, taking full advantage of the lovely spring weather.

Both year 4 classes took part in 3 events which included balancing, turning cones and a full lap of the school grounds to finish off. The Bronze Ambassadors timed each house team as one, giving some close timings for Mrs Fahey to compare! Next week we will run the same for years 5 and 6, so watch this space for news on the overall house winners…

10HP went to each of the Bronze Ambassadors who organised and ran an excellent event which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Well done to everyone involved!

Tag Rugby

Team Tynings year 5/6 tag rugby team were excited to be able to attend the finals event of the tag rugby league this week, following an afternoon of no defeats back in October. We were lucky enough to receive some extra training from Mr Griffiths and Mr Fahey last week, as final preparations for the big day.

We played against 3 different schools in our pool matches. Even though we won 1 and lost 2, we played better than ever before – we made sure we didn’t forget that we were playing against the other best teams in the area. Each game was very close, with evenly matched sides and some brilliant skill and deception work.

We came third in our pool, meaning that we had one final match to play…against the top of pool A. Beacon Rise put up a great show, but we played better than we had done all afternoon, at we were ahead by a try at one point. Unfortunately, they were just too small and nippy for some of us, and the whistle blew for the end of the match whilst they were 1 try ahead.

Team Tynings were disappointed not to have gone through to further matches, but are so proud of the progress made over the competition.

Swimming Gala

Team Tynings had an excellent day at the South Glos PE Association swimming gala last Saturday, taking part in a number of individual and relay events including freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke. The competition was made up of a set of 4 or 5 heats per event, and our swimmers performed well with some first and second places! We are still waiting on official results from the PE Association so we will ensure that we get those out to those concerned as soon as possible. Well done everyone involved, and many thanks to the parents and children for giving up their Saturday evening.


Gump run

The whole of The Tynings were lucky enough to have a visit from local running celebrity Jim Plunkett-Cole on Tuesday 15th March, who came in to talk to us all about his plans to do the ‘Gump run’ in America. Jim shared lots of his running experiences with both KS1 and KS2 in separate assemblies, which were so interesting and inspirational! The children had some fantastic questions to ask, and each class also had the opportunity to go on a short run around the grounds with Jim himself. What a treat for staff and pupils! If you want to find out more about Jim’s plans, visit his page: https://www.facebook.com/JimGump-898616836901866/

Gymnastics competition

Pupils from years 4, 5 and 6 took part in a gymnastics competition today at Majestic gym in Longwell Green. The children were expected to learn quite a tricky routine, and perform it on their own in front of the judges. Everyone did exceptionally well to learn it, and so perfectly too! Following the floor routine, the children were also scored on their efforts on the vault. There were also two practice stations, where they had the opportunity to try out their skills on trampolines, trampettes, bars and air-filled mats. We came home with 3 wins: Rebecca in year 5 won overall for her floor and vault performance, whilst Evie in year 6 won overall vault. As a team, our year 5/6 level 1 group came second. What an amazing Team Tynings performance! Everyone who took part will receive a certificate in celebration assembly this Friday.

Tag Rugby Success!

Team Tynings took part in a tag rugby competition at Cleve RFC on Friday 13th November following the ‘come & play’ competition in October. We took our strongest team, and it more than paid off! After an initial win, we gained some extra confidence which carried us through to a second, third, fourth and finally a fifth win against the other school in our group. Everyone was full of good spirits, despite the weather, and made really sensible decisions in terms of selections for each match we played.
Unfortunately the decision was made that the competition should be suspended early due to the extreme weather. We ended up finishing the group competition with a total of 15points (the maximum we could have), and we are looking forward to taking part in the trophy finals soon. We will let you all know as soon as possible when we find out the date for the finals.

Go Team Tynings!

Tag Rugby Training

Otters and Falcons played against each other this morning in an exciting tag rugby competition. This competition followed School Games competition format, and we ended up playing some basic tag games then full tag games. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to play against each other in a sport that they have been working towards.

Team Tynings win all their matches at The Grange ‘come & play’ tag rugby 19/10/15

Well done to all children who took part in the ‘come & play’ tag rugby competition at The Grange this evening. Years 5 and 6 have been warming up to this with weekly coached tag rugbysessions from Dean and Alex. It was clear that their skills have really been improved by these sessions, as we had a very strong and successful team. Throughout the course of the 6 games we played, our team went from strength to strength, growing in confidence all the time. The final try of the afternoon, scored by Daniel, was an excellent example of all the skills we’ve been practicing over the term. Brilliant work, Team Tynings! Hopefully that’s set us up well for the league competition in November.
Well done to Reid, Jamie and Liam (Otters), and Madison, Lily-Mae, Azaria, Daniel, Jamie, Theo, Alfie, James and William (Falcons).


Tag Rugby – again!

Otters had their third and final tag rugby session today with Alex from The Grange. What a way to end the block of coaching! Huge thanks to Alex and Dean for a great few weeks
