Match Report
 

Written by Bailey (Head Sports Boys) 

 

The West Heath Boys have came full circle in tonights competition.  After loosing their last 7-a-side tournament, followed by their last 7-a-side match the last thing they needed was a lose in their first game.  In typical West Heath fashion we made it difficult for ourselves and we lost our first game 3-0.  However this is where the run of bad luck ended.  After watching the girls and the effort they put into their matches the boys realised you don't get anywhere without hard work.  The boys hard work matched with their skill resulted in a change of fortunes.  It was like the shackles had been let off and West Heath could really show what they were capable of.  Baileys report hits the nail on the head and explains what was a fantastic evening.  Just remember boys if you want something you have to work hard for it.  Resilience is key, it is ok to make mistakes and lose but it is how you bounce back that defines you.

On Thursday 9th November from 11:00am-2:00pm some children from West Heath Primary School went to Nechalls Well-being Centre to take part in a Pentathlon. Oliver, Isaac, Rio, Llewellyn, Brooklyn, Cobayne form upper key stages and Erin, Kiera, Jacy, Enzo , Emily, Muhammed from the lower key stages took part in a range of activities including table cricket, paddle ball, boccia blast, flight path, Messi football, beanbag toss. They played a lot of different sports and competed in one match in each of the sports, the A team finished sixth and the B team finished tenth. Both teams showed excellence and cooperation in all the sports. These are some of the things the people who went had to say about the day:

“I was really proud of all the children for trying their best at all the different sports” by Mr Blackburn.

“I felt very excited because I won a medal and competed for the school” By Oliver

Isaac said “I really liked it because I went out and won a medal”

Mrs Field said “It was a brilliant day, the children did lots of events, we all enjoyed the day”

Muhammed says “There were lots of other schools taking part”

We are really proud of the children for taking part and bringing back medals, Well done West Heath.

YEAR 3/4 BOYS FOOTBALL
Won 5-0
Result: Friendly Competition
03/10/2107
 
Match Report
The future looks bright at West Heath Primary School.  Our year 3 and 4 boys demonstrated the impact great teaching, great facilities and great parental support has on the development of young children.  The West Heath boys were given 3 instructions:
1) Know and play your position.
2) When there is space dribble. 
3) When there is no space pass.
The boys carried out those instruction with fantastic results, putting on a dominate display.  The first quarter was very impressive with the year 4 boys demonstrating their individual skills and their ability to combine with others.  Oliver and Charlie made great tackles in defence and set up our attacks, with Kai pulling off some great saves when called upon.  Cameron stood out setting up our attacks with Ayman and Tyler always a threat with their skill and speed.  The second quarter saw the year 3 boys continue in the same for.  Aaron and Baba did well when playing in goal and outfield. Kye's defending was solid especially when he got stuck in.  Zion showed some great touches and Archie's speed helped us to attack and defend.  Luke has some silky skills and Jayden scored a screamer.  The third and fourth quarter was a lot tighter as we moved from 6v6 to 7v7 however our boys still showed the better quality in tight areas.  Moving forward we need to see if we can continue to make the right decisions with less space knowing when to pass and when to dribble.  Great start to your footballing life at West Heath though boys.  Thank you to all of the parents that were there to support their children.

Match Report

It was a fantastic tournament in which all of the girls played incredibly well. For a large number of the girls it was their first go at playing competitive Tag Rugby and you wouldn’t have known it. West Heath A team finished top of their group and qualified for the semi- finals. West Heath B team finished second in their group and also qualified for the semi-finals. Unfortunately for the girls it meant that they had to play against each other in the semi-final. West Heath A team just managed to win the semi-final 3 -1 and were then cheered on vociferously by the B team throughout the final. The final was a very evenly matched contest and finished 1 – 1, which is an incredibly low score for Tag Rugby and was testament to both teams hard work in defence. Extra time was played with the next try scored being the winner. West Heath just fell short of the try line when attempting the first attack of extra time and the other team broke away and managed to score after a great attack of their own. A huge well done to all the girls involved and for bringing home the first trophy of this year’s sporting calendar.

CROSS COUNTRY - 3rd Race
Boys - 137 Pts, Girls - 57 Pts
Result: Boys 5th, Girls 1st 
16/10/2017
 
Match Report
The final meet of the cross country league took place at Cofton park.  Cofton has a mix of uphill and down hill running and is probably the longest meet of the season.  West Heath girls looked really strong achieving their best team score of the season. Boys however found the hills a struggle again.  All pupils showed great determination to get around the course in windy conditions.  Special mention for Charlie and Chole who place very well considering they are in year 4 running in a predominately year 5 and 6 race.  Well done Lenae who also finished in the top 10.

BOYS FOOTBALL- RM Trophy
Lost 10 - 7
Result: DNQ 
13/10/2017
 
Match Report
Some results don't paint a full picture!  Our boys got off to a dreadful start finding themselves 3-0 down in the first quarter due to some individual errors.  However our area for improvement, from our last match, was to show resilience.  The boys showed this in abundance dragging themselves back into the game by playing some fantastic football.  Munashe led by example encouraging the rest of the team to express themselves on the ball.  The scoreline ebbed and flowed throughout the second and third quarter with West Heath fighting back and taking the lead.  Missed chances by West Heath and some individual pieces of skill from the opposing team meant West Heath slipped behind in the final quarter.  However the boys can take lots of positive away from this game especially the way we played football out from the back to create chances going forward.  Harry and Mason slotted into the team very well and more than held their own.  Well done boys you have set the standard moving forward now.

Match Report
Disappointing evening for our girls tonight.  The girls got off to a great start wining their first game in dominating fashion, picking up where they left off in the qualifiers.  However, things took a turn for the worse from here onwards.  The girls dominated their second game creating numerous chances hitting the bar, the post and the goal keeper on several occasions but they failed to convert any of the chances they had and nearly lost the game right at the end.  With game 2 finishing a draw we new we had to do well in the next two games and therefore changed our formation in a attempt to win.  By doing this we lost a bit of defensive security but did create more chances by putting more pressure on the opposing team in the final third.  However once again we failed to convert our chances and got sucker punched at the other end of the pitch which resulted in us loosing our final two games.  The girls can take lots of positives from this evening and played some great football at times however we will have to score more goals if we wish to win games and cut out mistakes like conceding directly form corners.  We need to bounce back girls, we have a very strong team this year.

Match Report
This evening 9 West Heath pupils went over to Colmers secondary school to take part in a taster table tennis event, in preparation for upcoming tournaments.  Pupils learnt the basic rules of the game and got to practise their skills against pupils from other schools.  West Heath pupils demonstrated good table tennis skill but just as importantly they showed great skills as young people, working with people they had never met before to umpire and keep score.  Well done West Heath.

Result: Finished 5th

Match Report
 The boys football team found this evening very difficult on large, sticky pitches.  They started ok narrowly looing 1-0 after dominating large portions of the game.  They bounced back in the second game winning 1-0 with a great bit of skill from Alfie setting up Adeola who finished confidently.  We struggled in the next two games loosing 2-0 and 1-0 respectively however, Taylor made some fantastic saves in goal keeping us in both games.  The boys will need to show more resilience moving forward and will have to compete more than they did this evening if they want some success this year.  Conditions made it difficult to play our normal style of football but hard work beats talent, if talent doesn't work hard (Sir Alex Fergusson).  We need to work harder in games to come and earn the right to play.

Match Report
The West Heath basketball team were outstanding in the first basketball competition of the year.  Their individual skills were fantastic noticeably their ability to dribble and perform lay-ups when shooting.  Their tactical understanding was very good maintaining a defensive shape making it very difficult for other teams to score.  Moving forward the quality of our passing could improve especially around the other teams basket.  We need to use quick passes to create chance to run in and score - this comes down to our decision making.  However this will improve with practise.  Keep working hard!

Match Report
The boys made a positive start to the 2017/2018 football season.  They played some great football and really demonstrated a understanding of time and space.  When they got the ball down and played football they demonstrate some great skills especially on the counter attack with Adeola, Kaine, Bailey, Suharyb and Alfie winning the majority of their individual battles.  Keegan and Shay orchestrated the majority of attacks with some tidy play at the back.  Munashe and Jack supported the defence when called upon.  Taylor made some great saves at times and set up attacks by playing out from the back.  areas for improvement would be committing to tackles and working as hard off the ball as we do on it.  However, if we keep trying to play football I'm sure the boys will have a enjoyable season this year.
