St johns prep and senior school sports newsletter autumn 2010

  1. 1. Autumn Term Issue : 3 Sports Newsletter St John’s Senior School Tel: 020 83660035 St. John’s Senior School North Lodge The Ridgeway Enfield Middlesex EN2 8BE Netball team undefeated Since losing 4-3 to St.Aubyn’s (conceding 2 goals in injury time) in our opening league game of the season, St. John’s has remained unbeaten in the North London Independent Schools League. Within one week we beat King Alfred’s twice and drew once and also achieved a double victory. After James Dillon suffered an unfortunate injury, Harry Reynolds made his senior team debut this term. Harry has performed superbly, pulling off some fantas- tic saves. James is currently back in training and is fighting to regain his position as goal- keeper. We are extremely pleased with the style of football that the boys are play- ing, by trying their utmost to keep the ball on the ground and play passing football. In the new year these teams will be given fur- ther development of their tackling and head- ing skills.

They are currently participating in the Borough Netball league and have won every game this season. The girls skills, team work and determination have seen them beat schools including Latymer, Lea Valley High School, Edmonton County, Oasis Academy Hadley and St Anne's. The girls now face Kingsmead in February and are aim- ing for a victory to enable the team to go through to the semi-finals and finals in March. The Second Form team will also be entered for the end of season tournament around Easter, to compete for the winning position. Last season the girls reached the finals in the tournament and came second after losing to Southgate School. The girls are extremely dedicated in their training and are keen to play in every game possible, I am looking forward to seeing them develop even further in the months to come. Second Form team members: Kyria Constantinou (C) Lucy Harbron Charlotte Clements Grace Firmin Aimee Adesina Adesuwa Akande Christine Fung Laura Bird Niamh O’Leary Top scorers so far this season are Ceykan Karago- zlu (1st form), Michael Rubra (5th form) and Mat- thew Mubiru (6th form). Well done so far boys, keep up the hard work!
  2. 2. Cross country Page 2 PE Fact File Many factors influence whether people partici- pate in or watch sport. Reasons people get in- volved in sport include; Benefits to health and fitness. Benefits to well being. Relief from stress. Learning new skills and making progress. Pleasure and satisfaction through competition. Meeting new people and making friends. To live longer. To improve or maintain an image. As a hobby. To please or to copy parents/role models. As a job or vocation. To enjoy yourself! Golf In my PE games afternoons this term I have been learning golf. I have been learning how to strike a golf club and how to putt. Our coach has allowed us to use the driving range to enable us to swing freely and develop powerful strikes. We have also been learning about the right arm grip, ball position, stance and posture. Once we have mastered the fundamentals, we will be ready to strike a golf ball. In putting we have been taught how to accurately putt a golf ball into a close hole on the green. We have also learnt how to use the proper motion and grip for putting. It is very hard to get the exact swing, by trying not to hit it too hard or too soft, but to get it just right so the ball goes into the hole and you get a hole in one. I am looking forward to my forthcoming lessons and excited about what we are going to be learning next. Reported by Matthew Charalambous 2 Green On the 15th October all First Form to Fifth Form participated in the annual school cross country event. This event is run along a course of 3 miles. The event was very successful and the ideal cross country weather conditions certainly made a great difference to the participants. We wish to thank all teachers and sixth formers who helped to run the event on the day. The results; 1st form girls — Georgia Newman 35:50 1st for boys — Ceykan Karagozlu 25:44 2nd form girls — Niamh O’Leary 31:18 2nd form boys—Samuel Leigh 24:20 3rd form girls — Isha Amin 32:56 3rd form boys—Andrew Connor 22:21 4th form girls — Katie Lodge 30:04 4th form boys—Tamilore Fayemi 21:22 5th form girls — Rebecca Metin 31:11 5th form boys—Andrew Ross 21:40 The next cross country event will take place on Friday 6th May, 2011. Liam Baker, a GCSE PE student is a keen golfer. Here we can see Liam in action.
  3. 3. The inter-house football competition for the boys consisted of an A and B team for each house, with points awarded for wins, draws and goal scoring loses. All the points were then accumulated to produce the overall house winners. The com- petition was highly competitive and extremely tight. The results were as follows; 1st/2nd form winners—Toads 3rd/4th form winners— Water Rats Inter-house competitions BOYS FOOTBALL RESULTS 1st /2nd Form St John’s Vs Kings W 4—3 St John’s Vs King Alfred D 2—2 St John’s Vs Northbridge ? 3rd/4th Form St John’s Vs Kings W 5—0 St John’s Vs King Alfred W 4—2 St John’s Vs Northbridge ?

It is a really exciting activity and is one of my favourites out of the wide range of activities on offer for our PE lessons. The pony I ride is called Zac, he is well be- haved and I feel confident when on him. In the lessons we have been learning about smooth transi- tions, going from a walk to a trot (sitting, rising and standing) and then up to a canter. The riding instructors are very helpful and friendly and they do not make us do anything we are uneasy about doing. I am hoping the school continues to let us have privileges like horse riding because it really makes this a wonderful school. Reported by Emily Few 2Blue Horse riding During the inter-house competi- tion this term, the girls from First to Fourth Form participated in a netball tournament during their PE games afternoon. The girls were divided into the four houses, Toads, Moles, Water Rats and Badgers. All the girls played well and were dedicated to playing their best for their houses. The games were all played in good spirit while rival houses loudly cheered their oppo- nents. The results were as follows; 1st/2nd form winner—Toads 3rd/4th form winners—Moles Page 3
