History at Countess Way

It was a very proud day at Countess Way on Thursday the 6th of October as four teams came to play in a football tournament organised by Mr Spence.  It was history in the making for more than one reason as for the first time the grass field at Countess Way was being used for a sporting event. Secondly it was the first time that Countess Way had ever had a team in a competition. Although the results didn’t go the way of the home side, it was a momentous occasion and even more so in the last match. It was the big ‘derby’ when the clash of Countess Way v Fen Street came together.

We are incredibly proud of the year 3 and 4 children who played with an open mindset to something new, who grew their understanding of what it means to play in a team together and they had to have plenty of belief in themselves and their team-mates to believe they could achieve!

Well done!

Cricket Festival & Athletics Competition

Last Wednesday the year 5 & 6 cricket teams went to a festival. Both the boys team and the girls team played against 6 teams. The boys finished 3rd and the girls finished 4th. Both teams showed brilliant sportsmanship and did the school proud.
On Monday 6th June we took 48 children from years 3 – 6 to the annual athletics competition. All the children were fantastic. We are currently awaiting the results to find out how many of our children have made it through to the MK finals.

Year 3 & 4 Basketball Team Place 4th!

Well done to the year 3&4 basketball team who achieved 4th place out of the 45 schools that entered the competition!

The children competed in the heats back in November where they successfully secured a place in the finals. The children showed great determination, belief in themselves and amazing teamwork.
On the 3rd December they were one of 11 schools that took part in the finals. They played 5 matches where every member of the team had a famous Brooklands ‘gotcha smile’ during every match. They showed the highest level of resilience, teamwork and determination working together to get through to the semi finals where they were awarded 4th place.
What an achievement to be 4th out of 45 schools in Milton Keynes. We are very proud of them all.
