Scotts Primary School is very proud of the children's sporting achievements.
Well done to the eight children that represented Scotts at the Borough Boccia competition. They were all superstars on the day showing incredibly good behaviour and some great bowling skills. All three teams had a mixed bag of results meaning they finished mid-table. They won the School Games certificate for 'Respect'. Congratulations to Harley, Lucas, Hridit, Raayan, Phoebe, Mitchell, Zac and Blake.
Well done to the Scotts girls that took part in Jaybee's In-House Gymnastics competition. All of the girls below were placed winning medals in different categories.
Little Musketeers Fencing Day
Year 2, 4, 5 and 6 were treated to a day of fencing run by Olympian James Beevers. The day started with an inspirational assembly where the children had the opportunity to listen to James and watch some fun fencing activities. Then, throughout the day, each class had a session learning the basic skills of fencing and the 'on-guard' position. We are hoping to have a fencing club starting in January so please look out for this if your child enjoyed the day!
Junior Sportshall Athletics
A huge well done to the 40 children that took part in the Borough Sportshall Athletics competition. They all tried their best in both the field and track events and showed impeccable behaviour throughout the day. The Year 3 and 4 team came 6thoverall and won the ‘Passion’ award. The Year 5 and 6 team came 4th. Congratulations to all involved!

Weekend sporting action
Year 5 & 6 Borough Tag Rugby
Well done to Scotts today at the Tag Rugby competition. The team in the competition won 3 and drew 3 meaning they finished in 3rd place in their pool overall. The team in the festival showed improvement as the day went on, they didn't score a try in their first 3 matches, but did in their last 3 and even won the last game 3-2! Player of the day goes to Tobi for his lighting speed and scoring the most amount of tries. Everybody that went displayed superb behaviour and great team solidarity. Thank you to the parents who came to support too, I know the children loved having you there. Well done to Rosie, Bomi, Eloise, Ria, Brooke, Lily, Abby, Carys, Joe, Jack, Findlay, George, Riley, Tobi, Charlie, Jayden, Danny, Abbie, Kai and Calum.
Borough Cross-Country Competition Years 3-6
A massive well done to all of Scotts cross-country runners who took part in the Borough competition today. There were fantastic performances by all, but special mentions must go to Summer in Year 3 who finished 1st in the Year 3 and 4 girls category; Jayden in Year 4 who finished 6th in the Year 3 and 4 boys category; Rosie in Year 6 who came 1st in the Year 5 and 6 category; Findlay in Year 5 who came 3rd in the Year 5 and 6 category. To have somebody from each age group finish in the top 10 with over 250 runners in each race is absolutely incredible. The children have shown great commitment coming to training every Wednesday morning since September. Their hard work definitely paid off. This years results are without doubt the best we have ever achieved at the Borough Cross-Country. Well done to Noah D, Harry B, Jayden W, Ciaran M, James L, Daniel S, Summer S, Orlaith M, Masie F, Paige W, Amelie M, Lillie L, Findlay M, Jack M, Sam P, George Fau, Rosie W, Lily-Rose B, Isabelle P, Eloise and Brooke. I am so proud of you all!
Good to be different day
Year 5 and 6 took part in some different sports today as part of good to be different day. They tried seated volleyball, boccia and visually impaired badminton. All had lots of fun and appreciated the difficulty of playing these sports if you had a disability. They learnt about the Invictus Games and even watched some video clips of these amazing athletes.
Year 6 Orienteering Competition
By Tommy, Reiss and Abby
On 9th October, an extraordinary orienteering competition took place at Stubbers. The pupils, chosen from Year 6, were: Tommy, Reiss, Abby, Carys, George, Calum, Kai, Rosie, Bomi, Riley, Eloise and Victoria. Everyone had a lot of fun even though it was tiring, soaking wet and very muddy!
It was challenging as it was so muddy and the Stubbers staff wanted to find the best teams. There were two courses, one for primary schools and one for secondary schools. Some of us got a bit lost between the two courses! There were enormous puddles which became obstacles that we needed to get around – some people had to rescue their shoes because they ran straight through!
Well done to Reiss and Tommy who came 3rd out of 65 pairs and they even got a medal each. They have also been asked to represent Havering in the Regional competition being held in November.
Netball match v Clockhouse
Firstly, well done to everybody who have been attending weekly netball training. Numbers have reached a record high this year and we currently have 54 children on the register. Let's hope the enthusiasm continues into the cold, wet months! First match of the season and both the A and B squads played. It was a great game with Scotts leading for a lot of it. Unfortunately the final score was 11-9 to Clockhouse but everybody tried hard and played some good netball. It was nice for our newcomers to experience what a game of netball should look like too. Here the teams are with the Borough Olympic Torch.
Girls Borough Cup Football
Well done to Brooke, Lily J, Lily-Rose, Eloise, Harriet, Abby, Summer, Rosie, Tilly and Bomi who played in their first football cup game for the school as a team this year. It was a nail bitting game that ended 1-1 at full time. This then meant there had to be penalties. Nerves got the better of our girls and they were very unlucky to lose 2-0. Mrs Knapp and Miss Ballard are looking forward to continuing with the girls weekly training and seeing how they do in their upcoming matches.
Borough High 5 Netball Tournament
A huge well done to Scotts Netball team who played in their first competition of the year. They worked fantastically as a team and managed to get through to the semi-finals! So proud of them all. Congratulations to Findlay, Reiss, Abby, Bomi, Olivia, Tilly and Eloise.
