On Wednesday 13th April 2016, we held a hockey tournament between 3 South Otterington teams. The teams included a Black team, Orange team and a Red team.
The first match started; Blacks vs Reds. An early goal from Joe Tosh capped a positive start for the Blacks. Shortly after, a constant attacking threat from the Blacks followed, consequently leading to a 4-0 victory for the Blacks, with goals from Joe Tart, Rafi Carus Huby and Alex Brigginshaw. Immediately, the second game commenced; Reds vs Oranges. The game started off strong for the Reds with two goals from Rory Barningham. Suddenly, a third goal was scored by Cody Holmes, a close-range drive into the bottom corner. And in the dying moments of the game, a consolation goal was scored by Charlie Pickersgill. The third and final match started; Blacks vs Oranges. Attack after attack from the dominant Blacks saw the result almost done. Or so it seemed. A rapid counter-attack from the Oranges saw the only goal of the game scored by Charlie Pickersgill. And the table finished as followed;
1.Blacks 1 Win 0 Draws 1 Loss GD: 3 P: 3
2.Reds 1 Win 0 Draws 1 Loss GD: -2 P: 3
3.Oranges 1 Win 0 Draws 1 Loss GD: -1 P: 3

So as you can see it was a very tough tournament for South Otterington. Although it was very close (often we were only beaten by only one goal),South Otterington played well but were out played this time round.
Various children from our class got chosen to enter a swimming competition in Hambleton leisure centre. Many other schools came to the event; they were: Appleton Wiske, Kirkby Fleetham, Ainderby Steeple, East Cowton and South Otterington (us!). The first race was freestyle then breast stroke, back stroke, butterfly, medley relay last but not least the freestyle relay. We did a cannon relay but that was for fun and didn’t affect the scores. We won the back stroke, came second in freestyle, third in breast stroke, second in butterfly, first in the medley and second in the freestyle overall we came second and that’s the best we have ever done!
On Thursday the 25th of February 2016, 44 of our children from Key Stage 2 went to the Cross Country Finals at Knayton Park. Three of them (Elena Edwards 5th, Laurence Mason-Smith 6th and Megan Edwards 5th) made it to the North Yorkshire cross country finals at Dalby Forest.

This morning we attended St Andrews Church to celebrate Education Sunday. This is a day of prayer and celebration for everyone involved in the world of education and has been celebrated for over 100 years!
Thank you ever so much to the children who performed a wonderful version of ‘The Prodigal Son’.
We were thrilled to take part in the Christingle Service at St. Andrews Church on Sunday 6th December. It was lovely to see so many friends and families from school. Thank you especially to those children who read so beautifully.
