Our Term 3 PE and School Sport blog is packed with all the latest reports from Team Garlinge




  Kent     School Games Finals

On     Friday the School Basketball team travelled to Medway Park to represent     Thanet at the Kent School Games finals. We got off to a flying start winning our first match and continued to work     hard throughout the group stage finishing a worthy 3rd place. We     then faced Gravesham in the 5th/6th Play off match     and used all of what we had learnt throughout the event to pull off a     comfortable win to finish 5th place overall.

This     is an incredible achievement to finish 5th in Kent and to be  amongst some of the best basketball players within the county, well done     everyone

Handball     Runners Up

Our     handball team put in a spectacular performance in the Kent School Games     Qualifier. They made it through their group stage without conceding a match     and headed into the final determined to come away undefeated. They fought  extremely hard against a strong Salmestone side and had to settle for the     silver medal in the end!

Year     2 Athletics

Our   younger athletes thoroughly enjoyed having a chance to practice their     athletic skills at the Dane Court Athletics festival.  Their  effort and determination to be the very best they could be was admirable     and we will look forward to taking part in the main competition later in  the year.


This  term we took 12 year 5 and 6 children to Ursuline College for our first     ever badminton event. They were privileged to be shown by the top badminton     coach how to do the perfect serve and played lots of different activities.   The team then took part in singles, doubles and triple matches where they   were proud to represent Team Garlinge.

  Table  Tennis

This was a new event for Team Garlinge   this year and the Y6 pupils have been able to practice their skills on   their new outdoor table! The team faced some fearsome opposition   but their game held up well. All the children had fun and were pleased to     earn themselves a medal for their efforts. Well done.

YEAR     2 Rapid Fire cricket

Our Y2 pupils had very exciting afternoon     competing against ten other schools     in the Thanet Indoor rapid fire Cricket Championships. Well done to both     teams who showed just how much they had learnt about cricket in our PE     lessons and it was great to see them showing off their skills. One of our     teams played particularly well to make it through to the final where, once     again, their great teamwork paid off and they were crowned the Champions!   Naimh was presented with a special medal for being the Player of the  Tournament and we have a brand new cricket set too!


This   term Year 4 have had their Intra event which was ran by our lovely SSOC  leaders. 

They     have chosen to run a basketball event and the YELLOW Team were the winners for year 4.

Our     year 4 GREEN Team     were chosen by the leaders to win our P.A.R.T trophy for showing all of our     school values throughout the event.


Four  teams went to the Ursuline to take part in a gymnastics training session     with the coach from Thanet Gymnastics club. They learnt how to perform   floor routines and vaults in preparation for the main competition next   term

Change   for Life

A big thank you to the Change 4 Life Leaders   who have given their time to run and plan all the activities in clubs to     make it enjoyable for everyone involved. They have set up some fantastic activities to give as much variety     as possible.  The children invited to the club have made a great effort to attend   and have thoroughly enjoyed the activities they were introduced too. There  have been many examples of the school values being shown and rewarded. Well   done everyone.
