EDITH'S WARTIME SCRAPBOOK
A huge well done to our Year 6 for their performances of Edith’s Wartime Scrapbook. Members of the audience raved about how talented the children are and that they very much enjoyed the performance.
PACKED TWO DAYS AT HAGG FARM
Year 6 children had two fantastic days last weekend at Hagg Farm. Activities included rock hopping, climbing, zip wires, orienteering and problem solving. As usual the children were very well behaved and were complimented by the staff at Hagg Farm.
It was a great weekend and we wish our Year 6 children well in the future.
Good luck Year 6.
Our Football Trip to Wembley – League 2 Kids Cup final.
On Sunday 29th May, the football team travelled down to Wembley, to play in their biggest occasion to date, having already won both their area final against Croft School in January and the regional finals back in March, against Accrington Stanley in the final, after a tense game.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Wembley and after checking in the boys had a briefing about the big day before heading off to Pizza Express for dinner.
The big day arrived. – Monday 30th May. We all headed down for breakfast, if feeling a little nervous at this point. Cleves School, who were representing AFC Wimbledon and our opponents, joined us before the boys got suited and booted ready for their Wembley tour, wearing the blazers and ties provided! The boys looked really smart and were ready.
The boys then headed for their tour of Wembley stadium, which included the dressing rooms, the Royal Box and going pitchside! The boys were really excited and enjoyed the whole tour. Once the tour was over it was time to prepare for the game. In the changing room Coach Dave gave last minute tactics – they were ready!
At 1pm the turnstiles opened and spectators entered Wembley anxiously waiting for the kick-off at 1.40 p.m.
The supporters clapped both teams onto the pitch and the boys got the full Wembley experience, including their names appearing on the screen.
They made a tense start, including a free kick just over from Captain Aidan, but battled on and it finished 0-0 at half time. As the second half began, Cleves School scored which was then to be followed by a second. The final whistle went. Our boys were in tears – Mrs Hirst and Mrs Robinson, along with coach Dave and Gary from Mansfield Town went onto the pitch to shake hands and console the boys.
The boys then went to collect their medals and trophy from the Royal Box before re-joining their parents and friends to watch the League 2 final between Plymouth and AFC Wimbledon, with AFC Wimbledon coming out 2-0 winners.
They may not have won, but the boys can say that they have played at Wembley. We all could not be prouder of them. Who would have thought that a journey which started on a cold November day would lead the team to play at Wembley – the home of football!
Well done boys, we are all so proud of you! Well done to all at Cleves School, who also presented our captain Aidan with a ‘Womble’ – mascot of AFC Wimbledon, a very kind gesture indeed.
It was a pleasure to have accompanied you on the Wembley trip. Well done boys!
