Level One CVC Netball Competition

Our Year 5/6 Netball Team recently competed in a local schools tournament held at St Peters school, Sible Hedingham.

There were seven local primary school teams taking part on what turned out to be a very hot day indeed!

Ridgewell played in a total of six matches. They did an amazing job and finished with four wins and two draws which placed us 2nd overall, meaning we will progress onto Level 2 of competition next term.

Every child had to learn to play in each of the court positions and they worked wonderfully as a team.

Well done everyone.

 Well done to our Cross Country team for their great performance at the recent event held at Hedingham Secondary school. 

A team of 16 KS2 pupils represented Ridgewell with many of the pupils securing a top ten place in their individual categories.

Fantastic success for William in Year 3, who won his race and will progress onto the Level 2 final to be held in March.

We are very proud of you all!

***Following on from William's cross country success, he went on to compete in the Level 2 final held at Ramsey Academy where he also WON his race! This meant that he had qualified for the ESSEX COUNTY FINAL! Such a fantastic achievement. We travelled to the Olympic mountain biking track at Hadleigh Park (near Southend) and William once again performed wonderfully and finished 12th overall, just missing out on a top ten place for the Nationals. Everyone at Ridgewell is very proud. Congratulations!***
