Swimming Gala March 2018

Mia, Grace, Lucia, Samuel A, Samuel R and Owen all competed in individual and team events at the Havering Swimming Gala. All of the children’s performances were outstanding at the Havering Swimming Gala. Samuel A and Lucia both made it into the final for the 25m backstroke but unfortunately both missed out on a medal coming 4th and 6th. Both the boys and girls narrowly missed out on a place in the final for the freestyle relays. Everyone worked exceptionally hard to get into the gala and during the gala event itself so they should be extremely proud of themselves and the way they represented Engayne. Mia, Grace, Owen and Lucia all beat their previous time that was set at the school pool during the gala, which was an excellent achievement. They were a real credit to the school and their performances were outstanding.


Orienteering March 2018

We took 30 children in 6 teams to Stubbers for the Havering Orienteering competition. The children were taken off for some games to help them learn some map skills and how to use the equipment. The team leader was given a tag which they had to use to log their times at each point. The children had to keep together as a team and all showed really good team work.

One of our teams came in second place!


Boys’ cricket May 2018

The Year 5/6 boys’ cricket team attended the Havering Cricket Competition
at the end of May. 9 boys attended and all represented the school very well.
They worked so well as a team that they were singled out for a ‘Teamwork’
values commendation. The boys won all the matches in the group stage comfortably. They performed well in the quarter and semi finals, progressing to the final where they were, despite some excellent bowling and fielding, beaten by James Oglethorpe Primary School. The boys should be very proud of their performance and behaviour.


Tennis May 2018

We recently had a group of 4 year 5-6 girls and 3 year 5-6 boys take part in a tennis tournament at Grosvenor Tennis Club. Even though the result might not have been what everyone hoped for, all of the students performed extremely well and should be very proud of their performances. Each child managed to win a handful of individual games but unfortunately we didn’t make it to the semi-finals.


We did however win the award for the most sporting team (one of the School Games values) so we were awarded with a certificate! All students represented the school very well.

Boy’s football

On Thursday 18th of November, Engayne played a friendly football match against Branfil school. The team played phenomenally well and worked extremely hard as a team. They dominated throughout and won the game 3-0. Some spectacular goals scored by Sam, Favour and James S.


On Thursday 11th October, Engayne played a friendly football match against St Albans. It was the team’s first game of the season and they all did extremely well. Engayne took the lead early on but unfortunately lost the game 2-1 in the final few seconds. The boys and girls represented the school in a professional and respectful manner.


KS2 Cross Country Event

Engayne show they are tough on mud!

Freddie R led the charge for Engayne as the school’s cross country team took part in the Havering Primary School’s Cross country competition on Thursday 8th November. In the year 5&6 boys competition the boys team finished a solid 4th place, narrowly being edged out of third position by only 4 points! The scoring team of Freddie R, James S, Lochand D and Steven T, with Luke S and Callum A-K as support, gave a strong performance and highlighted the strength and depth of the all the teams.

The year 3&4 girls team demonstrated a good team strategy. Coco T & Emily K, Katie H & Millie B-W and Brooke F & Saffron B all finished in pairs to complete a team score that put them 21st out of the 30 schools in the borough.

The year 5&6 girls and year 3&4 boys teams, however, combined strong individual and team finishes. The girls squad were led in by Scarlett W with a top 10 position, followed closely by Olivia M, finishing just outside the top ten. They were supported by Evie D, Niamh G, Olivia M and Phoebe J to finish a fantastic 2nd place in the team event!

The year 3&4 boys block finished the strongest by far, with their whole scoring team finishing in the top 20 out of the near 200 starters. Riley S led the charge with a 5th place finish, followed closely by Samuel S in 11th. He too was being chased hard by Maxi W in 16th, with Lewis I completed the scoring quartet finish second in a splendid team effort. They were supported by Nicky M and Daniel E – who’s runs made sure that the team had secured a top 3 finish comfortably.


Tag-rugby competition and festival

On 13th November, twenty children attended the Havering tag-rugby competition and festival at May and Baker RFC. The children were put into two different teams and played several games within a mini-league against other schools. The children performed extremely well, demonstrating lots of skill and excellent team work to attack and defend as a team. Both teams won several matches in their mini-leagues but only one team got through to the knockout stages. This team were eventually knocked out in the semi-finals but they all should be very proud of themselves and hold their heads up high, as they performed extremely well and represented the school brilliantly. Well done to both teams!
