Year 5 & Year 6 Netball Tournament

On Monday 6th November, I went to the netball tournament – I enjoyed it!  There were loads of pitches and lots of other schools.  All the matches were well played.  We didn’t win but it’s all about taking part and enjoying it.  We played five matches and tried our best.  After that, we had a biscuit from Mrs Hillhouse.

 Year 5 and 6 went to a netball tournament on the 6th November.  My team scored 4 points and came 5th. I played as centre, goal scorer, goal defence and goal keeper.  I really enjoyed it!

Summer, Year 5

 I enjoyed the netball tournament because we tried our best and it was really fun.  When I was centre, I really enjoyed it because I could go everywhere!  While some people were playing in the match, others had a break.

Eva, Year 5

 We enjoyed the netball tournament because we had lots of fun and we were all really tired at the end.  We were playing Westnewton (on the first round) and they beat us 6-0 but we still had lots of fun.  We didn’t score many points in the tournament but we still had a great experience.

 Last week, Year 5 and 6 went on a netball tournament.  It was lots of fun.  Although we came last, I had an amazing experience.  When we were in matches, I was very good at intercepting the ball.

Ellis, Year 5

 A group of Year 5 and Year 6 went to a netball tournament at Beacon Hill, Aspatria.  When we arrived, there were 5 teams including Silloth A and B teams.  Firstly, we played Plumbland.  They were quite good and they had tall players, they beat us 2-1.  We tried our hardest though.

Next up, we played Blennerhasset.  They had the same colour bibs as us, so we had to swap with Silloth B team.  We beat them 2-0, it was a fun match and their defence was very good.

After that, we played St Matthew’s School (Westnewton).  They were very good and we drew 0-0.  Both of the teams almost scored, it was a very close match and it was fun to play.  In this match, both teams accidently went where they weren’t supposed to go, so the referee had to stop the match a lot.

At last we played Silloth B team (the Year 5s). We were very nervous as it was our own team but we beat them 7-0.  It was a great match.  All in all, it was a very fun afternoon.  Plumbland won but we came second!  Our team had loads of fun at the tournament and I’m sure we’d do it again.

Cumbria Football Finals

Last week, Mr Brooks took some people out to play football at Carlisle and there were lots of other teams competing.  When we got there, all of us got a football and passed it around in a circle.  The first team we played were in a white strip and the first score was 2-0 to the whites.  After that, we all had a 10 minute break then that game ended.  Next, we played St. Paul’s School and we won 3-1.

Overall, we won 4 games, drew one and lost one but we came 2nd place in the tournament.  I was nervous about the day at first, but by the end I really enjoyed it.

Jake, Year 5


We really enjoyed the football competition.  We tried our best every game and all the team went home with a smile on their faces.  Amazingly, we won 4, lost 1 and drew 1.  Overall, we came second and the team that came first, beat us by one point!  Furthermore, we all were given a water-bottle because of our great efforts.

In our first game, unfortunately we lost 2-0 against Houghton.  But soon after, we came back with a 3-1 victory against Cummersdale (the last year’s champions).  We happily carried on our winning streak and won 2-1 against St Paul’s. After that, we unluckily conceded a last minute equaliser when we drew 2-2 against Rockcliffe.  But we soon came back with a goal in the first couple of minutes in the next game, to end up winning 1-0 against Hesket.  For our final match, we won 3-0 against Roose with our team netting 3 goals in the back of the net.

We finished with 13 points, coming runners up in the competition.

Football Competition  - 9th October

I was kicking the ball and then I ran over.  I enjoyed myself.

Izzy - Year 3

It was really cold but we really enjoyed it.  Liam scored three goals and I scored one.  Oscar saved lots of goals and I was very proud of myself!  I had a good time and I’d love to do another tournament!

Aiden – Year 5

I was on the winning team and I tackled the other team and passed the ball to Reece and Jake.  They scored the winning goals.  I had fun, it was a really good afternoon.  It was a little bit cold but once you started playing, it got a little bit warmer.  I’d really like to do it again.

Tag Rugby - 3rd October 2017

On Monday, Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to Aspatria to compete in a Tag Rugby tournament.  We were split into teams and we played 6 games.  I got 3 tries when we played Plumbland.  We came 4th in the competition.

Liam, Year 5

Years 3 and 4 were split into teams and so were Years 5 and 6.  All of us were against different schools.  Even though it was really hard, we tried our best to score tries.  In the end we came 2nd, 3rd and 4th – we all tried our best!  I just want to say thanks to Mrs Hillhouse and Mr Donald because they helped us a lot and even when we were not doing our best.

Phoebe, Year 5

On Monday, we went to a Tag Rugby tournament.  I scored 5 tries and we played 6 games.  We finished off by playing another Silloth team but we lost!  We came last but we still took part!

Sam, Year 5

All of Silloth Primary tried their best at the tournament!  We were so proud to say we came 2nd, 3rd and 4th.  Although some teams were older, we still did a great job!

Sadie, Year 5

We went on a bus and our team came third.  I enjoyed it because it was new to me but I just got on with it and loved it! My team was the Year 3 and 4 players.

Libby, Year 4

I scored 7 tries for our team!

Oliver, Year 4

It was fun.  We won 3 matches but we lost 2 matches.  We tried our hardest, we loved it!  Thank you!

KS2 Tri-Golf Tournament - 22nd May 2017

On Monday, Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 all went to a golf tournament. Miss Baxter and Mrs Hillhouse took us.  We did lots of different games that involved putting and chipping. In every game, we earned points! Also, in-between those mini activities, we had some little breaks too. Before we started, we all got into groups. Year 3 and 4 went together and Year 5 and 6 were put into a group too. We all had a lovely day and had to rush for the bus at the end!

Phoebe, Year 4

 We played lots of games and I enjoyed it because we got to win points for our team.  We got juice there and some biscuits in the breaks!

Sam, Year 4

 I enjoyed going around trying a new kind of sport. We went round in teams and it was really warm, I enjoyed myself!

Tayla, Year 3

 The part I enjoyed the most was when you got to chip the ball at the target and I got the highest number – six!

Oliver, Year 3

 The tri golf tournament was at Beacon Hill School.  It was pretty good but I didn’t score many points for my team. The rest of the team scored lots of points (over 100). My favourite part of it was where you stood on cones which were worth different points.  You had to putt your ball into a hoop to score points. I hope we get a good score, we didn’t find out the scores because the bus was waiting for us to go back to school.

Overall, I had a very good time and I think we did amazingly well at it. I would do it again if I had a chance.

Ashleigh, Year 5

 The tri golf tournament was really good, however I didn’t score any points because I got the hardest ones to do. However, I’m assuming that we did very well because we got high scores on most of the games. I still enjoyed it even though I didn’t score many points for our team. Hopefully we’ll get the results back soon. The bit I didn’t like was the target practise because I couldn’t get high enough. I always got it too low. The bit I did enjoy was the chipping to the flag because on my first attempt just out of luck I hit the flag.

On the bus, I was nervous and so were the rest of them I think because we were up against most of the teams in Cumbria, most of them were really good.

The bit I was really worries about was the putting because even in real golf I’m quite bad at putting, it’s the same with chipping!

Quite regularly, we got a break and had juice and biscuits. Overall, I had a really good time and I’m sure the rest of the team did too. In the future, I’d like to be in a real golf tournament.

Ethan, Year 5

 Firstly, we got onto the bus. We were all excited but nervous as we were going up against some of the best schools! We arrived at Beacon Hill and were met by the other schools. After this, before we started, we grabbed a quick biscuit to fuel us up for the big competition ahead.

Overall, I think that my team played exceptionally and even if we played bad in one activity, we would always figure the problem out and smash the next one! I think our team was one of the best teams because we were always fair and we were always focused on our target.

I loved the chipping part the best in this tournament, because I thought that I did very well. There was a game where we had to hit the target with a chipper; I thought that everyone did very well on that. In the end, we scored a huge amount of points.

After that, we drove home to Silloth, we were all very proud of each other. We didn’t stay to hear the scores but I know for definite that we did very well.
