Hampshire games hockey 2019 – On the 20th of June 6 brilliant hockey players arrived at the Hampshire games, to play top quality teams. Our first match is always our weakest and we realised how high the standard were, our second match was more aggressive because we knew we had to win to get to the next round. But we drew the next two matches. Our final match in that round it decided to rain but despite that we won.
We got through to the next round and we were the only island team to do so. We all played very strong in our last few matches and came 5th out of 40. We all really enjoyed our day out and were very impressed with ourselves.

Tuesday June 11th
On Tuesday afternoon we traveled to Arreton cricket club, to play Primary school sporting giant Newchurch in the quarter final of the girls cricket cup. Olivia won the toss and Yarmouth batted first. Amazingly none of our team were out and we set a good total of 241 for Newchurch to chase. It started well, Tawnie getting a run out first ball, all the girls bowled well, putting Newchurch under pressure, two further run outs followed, one from Ocean and a brilliant throw from Olivia. It remained tight right to the end, Sky bowling the last over really well, and a great catch from Tawnie meant we were still in with a chance. Unfortunately though, Newchurch finished their innings on 245. This meant we lost by just 4 runs, a great effort against a very good opponent.
Team. Sky, Ocean, Bella, Issy, Tawnie, Jamie, Olivia, Maia

Under 11’s Girls Cricket

On a sunny Thursday afternoon Yarmouth Under 11 girls entertained Shalfleet and Brighstone in the opening round of the island cricket competition. First up we played Brighstone. We batted first, Sky and Jamie getting us off to a good start, and we set a good total of 261 for 2. We batted very sensibly, taking no risks, with Ocean, Maia and Paisleigh all hitting the boundary. It was then our turn to bowl. Some excellent performances with Sky and Izzy bowling particularly straight. Two excellent run outs by Olivia and Ocean, with Paisleigh also bowling someone out, meant that we restricted Brighstone to 251 for 3 and won the match. Next up we played Shalfleet. This time we bowled first, Shalfleet got off to a good start, but another run out, this time from Tawnie, slowed them down, Paisleigh bowled another and then Olivia and Ocean bowled out the last 2 overs for just 4 runs
leaving Shalfleet with 246-2. Batting second Shalfleet started really well, putting us under pressure, but we battled back and the game was really tight and even up until the last over, when some good batting from Ocean saw us over the line winning by 9 runs, with 255-1. This means we go on to face Newchurch in the next round. The girls all did a fantastic job, and they are continuing to represent the school brilliantly in sport this year.
Team. Jamie, Maia, Sky, Tawnie, Izzy, Paisleigh, Olivia, Ocean

Under 11’s Rural League Final

On Monday April 1st our under 11 girls travelled to Queensgate for the rural league final where we faced our local rivals and federation friends at Shalfleet. The game started off in a cagey manner with Shalfleet having a lot of the ball, however Maia and Paisleigh defended resolutely to keep them out. Yarmouth couldn’t get into their stride and were met by some firm defending whenever we tried to attack. Shalfleet deservedly took the lead when a corner was tapped in at the near post. Credit to Yarmouth as we kept battling, Olivia chasing everything in midfield on a day that was so hot the lucky hat had to be dispensed with early on! Izzy replaced Tawnie in goal as we searched for an equaliser, which came after a quick throw from Olivia found Ocean, who turned brilliantly and finished at the near post. Charlotte replaced Sky to give her a rest and chased everything getting in some good tackles.

HT 1-1 Still not playing with as much confidence as they should we started the second half in the same manner as the first, and Shalfleet again took the lead after a long shot eluded Izzy. The girls dropped their heads and it looked as though the game was slipping away, Shalfleet attacking, but the defence standing strong. This drove everyone on and with only 2 minutes left Olivia sent Tawnie free down the right, who put in a great cross for Ocean to fire home the second equaliser of the game.

FT 2-2 The game went into extra time, and for most of it, a draw seemed the likely result, however Tawnie had other ideas, and after getting the ball from Sky, she ran free to score again. There was still time for another long shot from Shalfleet, but this time Izzy was equal to it. The final whistle went and the girls had done it!

FT 3-2 Team. Tawnie, Olivia, Ocean, Maia, Sky, Paisleigh, Isabella C, Charlotte.


On a windy Friday afternoon Yarmouth girls took on St Blasius in the semi final of the rural league competition. The conditions did not help with either team to play football, and after a few chances each Yarmouth got a free kick just outside the box. Up stepped Ocean and placed it in the corner. 1-0 up and more chances came and went thanks mainly to some good saves from the St Blasius keeper. This meant the half time score was 1-0. The second half was a similar story, Issy replaced Tawnie in goal who took her place in midfield. Some good play gave Sky a chance that went just wide, but the pressure soon told, after some good tackling by Olivia ocean set Tawnie free and that made it 2. Shortly after Tawnie made the game safe after some more good passing. Paisleigh and Maia defended resolutely to keep the teams clean sheet intact. The icing on the cake came after a quick throw from Charlotte released Ocean to score her second and the final goal of the game. The team now face either Brighstone or Shalfleet in the final on April 1st. Well done girls.
Team. Tawnie, Ocean, Paisleigh, Maia, Sky, Isabella C, Olivia, Charlotte



On the last day before half term some of green class took part in the West Wight basketball cluster competition at the sports centre. We played against St George’s, All Saints, Brighstone and Shalfleet. There were some tough teams, Brighstone in particular had a very strong team. However we gave it our best shot and scored lots of great baskets. Unfortunately we didn’t qualify for the island final but we all had fun.
Team. Finley, Sky, Paisleigh, Olivia, Bella, James, Jaydon, Tawnie, 

Sports update Autumn 2

This term has been a very busy one in the sporting department at Yarmouth. There have been football matches for all teams across KS2 with more children representing the school than ever before. The U11 girls have a chance of making the semi finals of the league competition, and the boys team are already in the cup semi final. The under 9 teams have found it tricky, against some very good teams, but their determination and togetherness has shone through and they never let their heads drop.

Away from football the U11 tag rugby team dominated the west wight area, making it to the island finals unbeaten, however, the finals proved a tougher proposition and despite giving it their best shot, couldn’t qualify for the semi finals. In the sportshall competition some excellent performances meant we finished joint 4th with Shalfleet. In KS1 we invited our friends from Shalfleet over for a multi skills competition, all the children had a great time taking part in various games, which were expertly run by our sports leaders.

Lots more exciting opportunities to look forward to after Christmas……

July 18th Girls Football v Shalfleet. – This afternoon our girls football team travelled to Shalfleet for the final sporting fixture of the year. The team was made up of year 4,5 and 6 children. Right from the start Yarmouth were on top. It was no surprise when we opened the scoring through Ocean. Frankie and Sky were doing lots of running in midfield and that meant space for Boe and Ocean to constantly run at the Shalfleet defenders. Lily’s long throw caused more problems and Ocean soon scored again. Shalfleet tried hard but good defending from Paisleigh and Daisy meant Poppy in goal only had a couple of saves to make. Ocean scored her hat trick to make it 3-0, and Shalfleet pulled back a goal right on half time. The second half followed the pattern of the first, Boe scoring a good goal and Ocean incredibly getting another 3! Shalfleet did get another goal but it was only a consolation. Great effort by all the girls on a very hot afternoon. Big thanks to all the parents for their support and help with transport, not just today but throughout the year. 

Team. Poppy, Daisy, Paisleigh, Lily, Boe, Frankie, Ocean, Sky.

Cricket Friday July 6th – A team from blue class made their way to Queensgate for the island under 9 cricket tournament. Drawn in a group with 2 teams from Queensgate, we opened up with a friendly against Newport. Thanks to good bowling and batting all round we managed to win this game. This upped confidence as we faced Queensgate 2. Despite playing well we fell agonisingly short of victory by 6 runs. However, if we could beat Queensgate 1 we still had a chance. Queensgate batted well setting us 247 to win. We stuck at it and in the last over we were still in contention. Needing a 6 to win off the last ball Daisy hit a 4 meaning we lost by just 1 run. The team did very well and should be more confident from the experience as they showed they could compete with the bigger schools. Well done everyone.

Team. Daisy, Ocean, Guy, Toby, Moses, Rosy.

Beach Cricket Friday 13th – This afternoon Yarmouth travelled to the picturesque setting of Appleby beach for a cricket tournament. Drawn in the group with Queensgate and Arreton, we first faced Queensgate. We batted first and set a total of 225. We bowled very with very few sides but unfortunately we were just pipped by 3 runs. Next up we faced Arreton, and their excellent bowling restricted us to 205. However excellent bowling and fielding, including a wicket from Jay and a great catch from Boe meant we were right in it, but again unfortunately we were pipped and lost by 3 runs. Due to having extra time we then played against both sides again. They were again close matches, Elph and Franz both doing brilliant run outs, but unfortunately a run out off the penultimate ball meant we lost by 2. The final game saw us finally get a win we deserved, beating Queensgate by 8 runs.

Team. Jay, George, Franz, Elph, Boe, Lily, Poppy.

Football – Over the past few weeks we have been playing a series of friendly matches against Shalfleet. Our under 9 team hosted the third of those games, entertaining a very strong Shalfleet team. For many of our boys this was their first competitive game ever. Shalfleet, with some experienced players scored a few goals but our boys didn’t give up and were overjoyed when Dom scored with a delightful finish. Unfortunately for Yarmouth, Shalfleet added a few more goals and ran out handsome winners. But our boys showed great commitment and enthusiasm and kept trying to the end. If they keep that up there will surely be improved results.

Team. Pacey, Joe, Joel, Dom, Louis, Henry.

The following game saw our year 5/6 team travel to Shalfleet to face a side that had made 3 cup finals during the season. They knew it would be a tough and so it turned out. However the boys put up a great fight, and thanks to some excellent goalkeeping by Alfie were only 1 down at half time. Cohen was running non stop around the midfield, and assisted by Jamie winning lots of tackles. The whole team worked really hard throughout and never let their heads drop, even when Shalfleet added some late goals. Well done team.

Friday June 29th – This afternoon some of Green and Blue class made the short trip to Shalfleet for the first of a series of football friendly matches. Yarmouth started off well and were awarded a penalty after a Shalfleet player handled in the box. Captain Finley handed the penalty taking duties to Ocean who duly dispatched into the bottom corner. Shalfleet came back and some good defending by Moe and Fin kept them at bay. James was putting in some strong tackles and Yarmouth were soon in the ascendency again, Ocean hitting the bar with a tremendous volley. Shortly after the lead was doubled when a Shalfleet defender scored an own goal under pressure from James, after Fin’s corner. In the second half Shalfleet started off well, but Gabe was winning some good tackles to keep them at bay. They did score however after a great finish gave Moe no chance. However Yarmouth were not deterred and restored the 2 goal advantage after a quick throw from Cohen went into the danger area, and good pressure from Toby resulted in another own goal. The game finished 3-1 to Yarmouth and was played in great spirit by both teams. Thanks again, as always to parents for their support both on and off the pitch.

Team. Cohen, Moe, Gabe, Ocean, James, Finley, Toby

Wednesday 27th June – This afternoon 8 pupils from Blue class made the short trip to Shalfleet for a ‘Shift it’ triathlon. This involved the children in teams of 6 taking part in either a run, scoot or cycle as a team. We were joined in our teams by some sports leaders from Shalfleet. The teams had 3 goes at the course meaning each child got to do each event they were able to. At the end of the day the scores were added and team ‘Mega’ were joint first, with team ‘Awesome’ joint second. All the children were really good in both behaviour and effort.

The results of each event are added together to get a team score. There were some brilliant performances, especially considering the limited practice time, with Yarmouth finishing 5th overall. Lily and Elph were first and second in the girls vortex and Beth and Elph both won their 600m heats. Franz was first in his long jump, and brilliantly came second overall. All the team did a great job, persevering on the events that they weren’t as keen on! They were superb ambassadors for the school.

Monday 18th June – Our girls cricket team took on Queensgate in the semi final this afternoon. We were put into bat, and started well, Poppy and Ocean scoring a runs with Ocean hitting 2 boundaries. Ellicia, Olivia, Lily and Beth all batted well and Queensgate were struggling to take wickets. Boe and Elph batted last, and despite Elph getting out in very unfortunate circumstances, both the girls ran and hit well so we finished on 244-1. However this proved to not be quite enough, as despite some excellent bowling from our girls Queensgate had some big hitters and finished on 264-0.

Every team we have played this year had praised us on our bowling, and once again, unlike our opponents, all the girls bowled over arm. They should be very proud that our little school made it to the semi finals of an island wide competition, which is down to all the practice and hard work the girls have put in.

Team. Poppy, Ocean, Elph, Boe, Beth, Lily, Olivia, Ellicia.

After school our girls cricket team took on St Thomas of Canterbury in the 1/4 final of the Island girls competition. Yarmouth bowled first, and some sharp fielding and good bowling resulted in early wickets, keeping the opponents score down. St Thomas came back, scoring a few boundaries, but another wicket meant they finished on 228-3. Our girls all batted very well, Poppy and Daisy getting us off to a good start, which Beth and Ellicia added to. Boe and Elph scored more runs meaning final pair Lily and Olivia just had to bat sensibly to see out the win. They did this meaning we finished on 255-0 and we now face Queensgate in the semi final.

Team. Olivia, Boe, Elph, Lily, Ellicia, Beth, Poppy, Daisy

Monday 11th June – This afternoon we took two teams from across key stage 2 to All Saints primary for a dodgeball festival. With no scores recorded the festival was about getting children active and involved in sport. Our teams started quietly with a few nerves, but quickly came out of their shells, showing good teamwork and enthusiasm. They also demonstrated some of the skills that they have picked up during PE lessons, playing some good dodgeball. The children were a credit to the school playing the games in the right manner and having great fun.

Cricket Tournament

Monday 21st – This afternoon Yarmouth made the short trip to Shalfleet for the group stage of the under 11 girls cricket competition. After Shalfleet had beaten Cowes it was our turn to face them. We bowled first and Daisy to a wicket with the very first ball! This set the tone and all the girls bowled very well, restricting Cowes to 212-6. Next it was our turn to bat and we batted very well and scored 227-2. This meant a decided against Shalfleet to see who qualified. Yarmouth batted first, just as it started to rain, scoring 227-4. This meant we would have to bowl very well to get the victory, with Shalfleet having scored 242 previously against Cowes. We were bowling well, but Shalfleet were ahead at the half way stage. But Ellicia then bowled a fantastic over to get us back into contention taking 2 wickets. Poppy and Boe added a wicket apiece which meant Shalfleet finished on 215-4 resulting in victory for Yarmouth. All the girls were brilliant and it was a great team effort, showing the practice they had done with Mr Roberts had paid off. We now wait to see who we face in the quarter finals. Well done girls.

Cricket Competition

This afternoon Yarmouth entertained Shalfleet and Newport in the first round of the island open cricket competition. First up Yarmouth played Newport. Yarmouth bowled first, and wickets from both George’s and Franz kept Newport down to 253, despite some excellent shots from Newport. All the Yarmouth team batted very well and we ran out winners for 259-4 playing 253-5.

Next we faced Shalfleet, who had been beaten by Newport  to see if we could qualify. Unfortunately Shalfleet managed to beat us which meant Newport went through on highest runs aggregate. The team did a great job and were commended on their bowling, with everyone using the proper action and not resorting to underarm bowling at any point.

Well done.

But after that we came back into the game Beth firing some excellent passes around. The team all played in different positions, Franz and Elph doing well as GK and GD Boe and Lily also. In the final 2 quarters Jay and George were our shooters and they managed to close the gap in score by finding the net twice each.
