''I have confidence and confidence in me''
''I have never experienced a day like this''
I have been to many competitions and felt overwhelmed by Virginia's spirit and performance,but today I am utterly speechless.
Our Year 5/6 Girls Kwik-Cricket stormed all the way through their matches at the London Youth Games and finished in 3rd place taking home bronze medals. Out of 6 matches, starting in the group stage all the way to the semi finals, they won 5. They worked as a team and performed with such drive and passion.
Every single one of them brought something to the team and made it a day to remember. I am so proud that not only did we get asked to represent Tower Hamlets, we are now titled as the 3rd best Year 5/6 Girls Kwik- Cricket Team in LONDON!!!

time being at the heart of the action and hopefully it has inspired them to push themselves further in their own abilities so that one day they can take part in such an amazing sporting event with record breaking crowds! We all had a fantastic day!
Special mention to Year 5 for their excellent performance in the 6 week Handball coaching.
Mohammed (THYSF handball coach) and I were able to watch them all grow from strength to strength, They are all truly gifted and talented in this sport!
Well done to the children and staff for making PE this n and exciting this Spring Term 2017!
On the 27th April Year 5 attended the MCC and Middlesex County Cricket Club Schools Engagement Day at Lord’s Cricket Ground. All students had the opportunity to watch the Middlesex V Gloucestershire Royal London One-Day Cup, partake in a self-led tour, and play game of B20 Cricket in the MCC Cricket Academy!
Cricket is our 'Focus Sport'and I hope that the children felt inspired to push themselves further in this fantastic sport!
A fantastic day was had by all, and we hope to visit again next year!
This team had worked really well together in school, and constantly praised and supported one another, resulting in the day being one they will always remember.
We started the competition in a strong group of 4 schools and battled our way to the quarter finals, recieving the best runners up of all the groups. We then went on the quarter final match against St.Marys and St. Micheals who are very talented. It was a tough game and both teams gave a fantastic performance, but no goals had been scored so it was all down to penalties! Again, it remained neck to neck but VPS won on the final goal scored by Shaheda.
This goal put us forward to the semi finals. We were so proud to get this far, especially as there were approximately 14 teams competing who were also the best of their borough! Unfortunately we lost in the semi finals against Blue Gate Feilds.
As a sports leader, I am utterly impressed with how much these girls worked as a team and bonded over their love of the game. Well done girls, you make me smile each and every day!
We had 3 teams of 4 representing Virginia in each group.
Group 1 and 2 won the group stages and Group 2 went on to play in the semi finals against the overall winners Manorfeild.
I am really impressed that with little practice, our children stepped up the challenge and came 4th,
Well done to you all.
