Girls PE Term 4

Term 4 has been nothing short of success. In such uncertain times we currently face we feel lucky to have the achievements of Team FHS term 4 to look back on. Girls PE have certainly not had it easy, they have battled wind, rain, snow and hail to get through a tricky term. 

The Hockey season started back in January with a great turn out of over 20 girls. The good turn outs at practices continued up until our first match of the season against Orchard School. The girls played extremely well and for a number of them this was the first time they had played a full sided game of hockey. the final score was 0-0 but a great effort by all the girls. Unfortunately the three other matches have yet to be played, and both the Year 7 and Year 8/9 Festivals that Fairfield were hosting had to be cancelled/postponed. Hopefully we will be able to resume sporting fixtures once we are all back in school.  

The Football season got off to a more promising start. The season saw the introduction of some exciting new players boasting a wave of football talent from the Year 7s including Lucy May and Frances Benson. Freya Crawford was certainly a standout player that got a lot of press during the Year 7 5 aside games. Her fast feet, control and intelligent play made her a deadly combination for her defensive players which proved all too much helping to the North Bristol region which took the squad all the way to the Bristol school finals where they narrowly missed out on points after a nail biting draw to the overall winners.

With the Year 7’s current success under their belt they joined the already strong U14 football squad captained by Emily Hogdson. The team had a great season and fought some harsh battles in the rain and cold to secure draws against Redland Green School and wins over Orchard School and City Academy, unfortunately a 1-0 loss to Colston saw them miss out on the semi-finals but we are extremely hopeful for the future of this team to come. It was a similar story for the U16 football squad led by Kamika Carty to bank a 1-1 draw over Colston and wins over orchard and Bristol Free. Frequent player of the match went to their very own captain but was shared by joint efforts from Chandni Kaur and Danielle Arnold who have had an outstanding season. It is always a pleasure to watch the U16’s play, their teamwork and work ethic is second to none.

Basketball has once again been a strong season. The U14 team led by captain Anna Crew this term kickstarted with a bang with a 32-4 win over Orchard, with their confidence high the team introduced new key players such as Freya Crawford who’s fitness was all too much to keep her pace up and down court tied down. Defence from Tegan and Emily made sure little was passing this teams net, whilst Ella and Anna made sure to finish the job with some gutsy 3 pointers and layups to help secure win after win to beat Colston 20-16, Oasis Brislington and City Academy. It was another fairy tale ending for the U16 team led by Dani Arnold who also topped their league with some great games to help secure a 20 points to take the league after a 28-14 win over Orchard, 24-10 win over Colston. Both sides progressed to the semi-finals against Merchants where both teams fought hard to tip and fight for every loose ball ,track back their attack and drive hard to basket. Whilst the U14’s came away with a 15-4 win to see them to the final the U16’s were dealt with a tough blow, facing the almighty talent of Merchants Bristol Flyers player who made it all too easy for her side to score against us. Nevertheless, the side fought hard and played their best against such a talented young lady but suffered a 24-6 loss. Unfortunately in the current crisis the U14 basketball Final against Bristol Met has taken a pause but we look forward to playing the final once all has settled and to hope to bring back the trophy to reward the girls with what has been a tremendous season.

We end Term 4 on a bitter sweet note as we have unfortunately had to postpone both Hockey festivals due to run at Fairfield (as mentioned above) as well as the Bath Netball Super league trip. We are still waiting for the refund policy to come through for this trip regarding how we access payment refunds but we will keep in touch will all those affected and issue these out as soon as we are given guidance from England netball and Ticketmaster.

We have no idea what the rest of the year at Fairfield holds but we hope that everyone remains safe and healthy and keeps up with any exercise they can. Remember if you haven’t already please join FHS_4 on Instagram and FHSp_e on twitter for news and innovative ideas to keep moving this summer including working out with Joe Wicks every morning at 9am.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all as soon as possible!
