SouthWest inter-schools climbing competition 2015

The Court Fields climbing squad returned to The Quay to defend their 2014 title in round one of the 2015 SW inter-schools competition. 96 young climbers from 13 schools took part event which offered 10 top rope routes of varying difficulty. The standard was much more competitive this year and the finish was incredibly close. Despite the relatively young age and inexperience of the Court Fields team we were delighted to come away with yet another victory. All the team climbed very well, but special congratulations are due to first-time member Ellie Norris who floated her way up several hard routes adding valuable points to our score and Joe Walmsley who flashed all the routes, sealing the win.

Congratulations to all the school teams who took part on the day and as always, thanks to Mr Walmsley for his help and support and the Quay staff for their organisation.
The date of the  final bouldering round is yet to be announced. Meanwhile we welcome students who want to try the sport to join us on Friday evening wall trips. Do see Mr Jenkins or Mr Dickson for more information.

Yr7 Futsal competition

On Wednesday 21st Jan the year 7 Futsal team from Court Fields travelled to Castle school to compete against the local schools in this School Games Qualifier. The winner would progress to the Finals which is held at Millfield in the Summer. Court Fields started well and won their first game 1-0. against Heathfield. Court Fields played some excellent football. They showed great passages of passing play, combined with some fearless cat-like goal-keeping from Sullivan Harlow. They continued as they started and managed to beat Taunton Academy, and Bishop Foxes also with a 1-0 scoreline. The Castle team proved more of a challenge and with 1 minute to go Court Fields were the wrong side of 1-0. However a quick thinking kick-in from Cameron Perry-Jones saw Harry Sloman knock the ball past the keeper and in by the far post. At 1-1 with seconds to go it was all to play for. However, a well taken corner and an even better header just beat Harlow and the game finished 2-1 Castle. A cracking display of futsal and Court Fields finished in second place narrowly missing out on that coveted Millfield slot. The team wish the Castle side all the best in the finals.

Student Panto

On Thursday 11th December Court Fields Year 10 GCSE Drama students put on a production of Jack and the Beanstalk meets Snow White and the Seven Auditionees. They worked extremely hard in preparation for the performance, which was also assessed as part of their practical performance controlled assessment. This is the schools first student pantomime and it proved really popular with performers and audience alike. It was so successful that we have decided to make this an annual event so watch this space for information on next years production.

Year 4 DT Day

On Tuesday 18th November forty Year 4 pupils from the local primary schools recently spent an exciting day at Court Fields School.  They worked with Mrs Osborne (Head of Design Technology), Mr Brookes (DT Teacher) and 12 Year 9 students, using numeracy and literacy skills in small teams to build catapults with the aim of “storming a castle”.  When their building was complete they spent some time testing their catapults, measuring and recording the settings to maximise the best results ready for the competition that was held in the afternoon.  The teams adjusted the settings to get the optimum results in the distance, height and accuracy contests.  The Year 9’s kept score and suspense grew for the winner!  Parents arrived to watch the grand finale at the end of the day when the teams used all their expertise to storm the castle.

North Wales Residential 2014

This year the North Wales KS3 residential returned to the Ysgol Latymer Centre, at the end of the remote Penmacho valley near Betwys-y Coed.  After unpacking the minibuses and allocating dormitories the smell of Mrs Robertson’s famous homemade chilli, started to fill the kitchen and we were soon sitting down to our evening meal.  After dinner the students entertained themselves with board games and table football before packing their rucksacks for the activities on the following day.

On day 1 the group split into two parties.  One group went to explore the mines at Rhiw Bach with Mr Jenkins and the other group set off to climb Snowdon with Mr Dickson and Mr Greenfield.

The walking group left the car park at Pen-y Pass and set off to climb Snowdon via the Pyg track route.  Within half an hour we had to stop to put on full waterproofs because of a heavy shower but our spirits were not dampened and we continued to climb the steep slopes until the weather started to improve and some glimpses of sun were seen.

Children in Need

On November 14th Court Fields students enjoyed wearing spotty clothes and Pudsey ears to raise money for Children in Need.  The school raised an impressive £901.83 with some monies still coming in.  Students  Aaron Fearnhead, Oliver Stewart and Jenna Martin raised money through a  sponsored silence which they all found incredibly hard!  Georgia McGrath and Shaella Power spent the day tied together hobbling around in their three legged effort to raise much needed cash.  As always students and staff put on a fabulous cake stall full of cup cakes and brownies which were  cleared with gusto at break time!

Choir Competition

On Monday 3rd November the choir took part in the heat stages of the Grand Pier’s Somerset Schools Christmas Carol Competition. It was with many nerves that the 42 members of the choir boarded the coach with Mrs Chidgey and Mr Evans, for the trip to Weston -super-Mare – we had just had 10 days off for half term so it was good that we could have a sing through before we left. Spirits were high however and I am pleased to say the choir performed very well and have found out that we made it through to the Grand Final which will take place on the 1st December.

If you would like to hear our choir in action then there are quite a few opportunities this term, Come along to the Christmas Cabaret on the 15th December at 7pm or attend the school Carol Service at St. John’s Church on the 17th December.

If you would like to come and support the choir in prestigious event at the Grand Pier, Weston – s – Mare then tickets can be bought from here.
