On Monday, eight Y34s took part in the Hull School Games Boccia Championships. Boccia a highly competitive paralympic sport very similar to french boules. This was the first time the children had ever played this game and the first time they have ever represented the school in competitive sport.
Amazingly, out of 23 teams, our team finished 1st and 3rd! The children were VERY excited to find out they have won and it was fantastic to see them having such an enjoyable times.
A huge well done children – lets see what the Y56 competition brings next year!
Our Y34 & 56 Athletics Squad celebrating their win!
CP continued their success in sports hall athletics this year. We have always done very well in this competition and have qualified for the county finals every year for the last five years. This year the competition has been structured in a slightly different way. There were three qualifying rounds with two teams from each going through to the Hull finals which will decide which team represents Hull in the county finals. For the second year, our Y34 and Y56 teams qualified with BOTH teams finishing in 1st place!
We are looking forward to the Hull finals on 15th February and hope to reach the county finals once again!

On Monday night, four Y6 girls and four Y5 boys represented the school in the Sainsbury’s School Games New Age Kurling festival at St. Mary’s Sports College. New Age Kurling is an adaptation of the popular winter olympics games except it doesn’t require ice to play! it was a big night for our boys as they were all making their school games debut and were very excited to be in a team together! Macy Ledger was also making her sporting debut.
Our children had a fantastic time playing this game and did an excellent job of representing the school. After the group stages, teams were placed into a mini-tournament to decide their final finishing places. Despite the chances being very slim, our two teams ended up in the same finals group! Dubbed the ‘Christopher Pickering El Classico’ by Mr. Arridge, the children had a fantastic final game which was very close. The boys eventually beat the girls by one point and were fantastic sportsmen when congratulating the girls on their achievement.
In the end, the boys finished 8th place and the girls 9th – a fabulous result considering there were 22 teams! Well done children.

On Thursday, our Y6 boys attended the Hull School’s FA 5-aside football championships. With incredibly high standards in past competitions, the boys knew this year would be no different but were willing to give it their all. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a tough night for the boys in blue.
After loosing their first two games 7-0 and 5-0, the chance of progressing to the final had sadly slipped away. Instead, the boys began to look closely at how they could improve, and were very successful in making progress. With a great goal from the captain in the next game, their spirits were lifted. In their final game the boys looked very promising after Kyle R scored twice, giving CP a 2-0 lead against a physical Stoneferry team. Unfortunately, their lead was eventually lost and with it the game.
However, the boys remained positive and supportive throughout and made the most of the situation by viewing it as an opportunity to improve! A special mention to keeper Bradley Mc who made his goalie debut. Bradley made some outstanding saves in every game, impressing spectators.
Well done boys!

On Monday, some lucky year 6 children got to try their hands at Goalball, and a few even made their School Games debut in the process.
Goalball, invented to aid rehabilitation of blind soldiers post WW2, requires players to abandon their sense of sight and rely on their hearing instead. The aim of the game is to stop the ball, which contains two bells, from going in the goal. Teams take alternate turns attacking and defending until the 6 minute game is over.
Our children had a brilliant time and really enjoyed themselves! Well done to everyone taking part.

On Tuesday, our boys took part in the Premier League Kids Cup. A national competition which puts the Premier League football clubs against each other through primary school football teams. Tuesday was the first round in deciding which lucky school would represent Hull City at this year’s national finals, held at Chelsea’s ground, Stamford Bridge. Our boys did fantastic! They won all of their group games comfortably, finished top of their group and automatically progressed to the regional finals. However, there were still games to be played and a winner for the evening was to be decided – CP had to play Elloughton in the semi-final.
This last game was very hard for our boys. Three games on a large pitch on a cold January night had really taken it’s toll on our boys. Despite a great effort up front from the Maskell boys, and some heroic defence from Yeaman and Millett – the boys sadly lost 3-0.
However, this didn’t dishearten our player- they still progress to the next round and have a chance of getting through to the national finals! Time for some hard training in preparation for Feb 7th!
Well done boys and thank you parents for your support!
Children had a special visitor in assembly today – Rory the Tiger! He was here with Marc Daddy from Tigers Trust to talk about an exciting fundraiser in February.

A full report will follow, but needless to say we are all very excited about this event!
