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!

Football

Engayne boys’ and girls’ football teams went to Harrow Lodge Primary School for our annual league tournament.  Both teams showed fantastic sportsmanship and ability during the games.  The matches were all close and could have gone either way.  Mr Clare, Mr Austin and Mr Hurley were very proud of the results.  The girls won 1, lost 1 and drew 1.  The boys had similar results, but won 2, lost 1 and drew 1.

Engayne girls cup match

The Engayne girls’ team played so well in a tightly-contested cup match at home against St Mary’s.  The game was exciting from the start, with a missed penalty by St Mary’s within the first 5 minutes.  Both teams battled for possession in the midfield and eventually St Mary’s scored just before half time.  Unfortunately, Engayne’s pressure in the second half didn’t lead to a goal for the home team, so St Mary’s went through to the next round with a narrow 1-0 victory.

Swimming Gala 2019

Lovella, Olivia M, Niamh, Lochlan, Jack and Lukas all competed in the individual and team events at the Havering Swimming Gala on Tuesday 12th March. All the children’s performances were brilliant, Lovella came 5th, Oliva 2nd, Niamh 4th, Lochlan 1st, Jack 1st and Lukas 5th in the heats. Lochlan and Jack both made it to the finals in their individual races (Lochlan swum fastest out of all the boys 25m front crawl swimmers during the heats). Unfortunately, Jack just missed out on a medal for 25m backstroke, coming 4th in a very close race and Lochlan came 1st in his final. Both the boys and girls relay teams came 3rd in their heats and just missed out on a place in the finals. All the children worked extremely hard to get into the gala and during the gala and they should all be proud of themselves. They all did Miss Birdsey and Engayne very proud and they were a real credit to the school

NETBALL

The netball teams all played a friendly rally against Branfill School. All 27 of our club members played in teams of 5 minute games during the rally. The final score was Branfil 7 Engayne 6 but a good time was had by all.

We took part in another mini rally against James Oglethorpe on FEB 12th. All the teams took part in at least one game and the final score was 9-6 to Engayne. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the matches and we hope to organise another one in Spring 2

Tennis:

We recently had a group of 8 year 6 girls/ boys take part in a tennis tournament at Cranston Park Tennis Club on 20/05. Even though the result might not have been what everyone hoped for all the students performed extremely well against some very tough opponents 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.

All the children played very well and represented the school extremely well.

Cricket:

On Wednesday 22/05 8 Year 5/6 boys went to Rainham Cricket Club to play in the Kwik Cricket tournament. The boys played very well as a team and won all three group games comfortable. Unfortunately they lost in the semi-finals to strong opposition but then won the following game by a convincing margin to finish 3rd overall out of 24 teams.

All the boys should be extremely proud of their performance and very pleased with the end result. They all represented the school in a respectable manner. Well Done boys.
