Year 5 & 6 girls Football 

The biggest ever competition in Moving Matters History with 20 schools, 24 teams and over 250 participants! Even better it was for girls football, what a positive sign for girls football! When we saw the girls play, there was even more excitement as the standard was fantastic. Girls were showing great understanding of the game, skills and expression on the pitch. As well as this the girls showed fantastic sportsmanship throughout the day.

Noticeable performances from the group saw Henry Cavendish go 100% and Walnut Tree Walk play some great tika-taka football. These 2 progressed to the quarter-finals along with Julians, St Mary's, Bonneville, Corpus Christie, Fenstanton and Larkhall. It was Henry Cavendish who progressed to play Bonneville in one semi and Fenstanton and St Mary's in the other. 

Bonneville shocked Henry Cavendish with a golden goal to progress to the final, whilst St Mary's beat a strong Fenstanton team to book a place in the final. In the final St Mary's played some great stuff to beat a skilful Bonneville team and retain the trophy. Fenstanton took 3rd place by beating Henry Cavendish in the 3rd/4th place play-off. Our fair play winners were Fircroft and St judes. Congrats to all!


Year 3 & 4 Swimming Gala

We was back at Streatham Leisure Centre for our 7th competition of the year and this promised to be a brilliant day. 

The first gala was very competitive with Julians and Telferscot primary taking the majority of the golds with some strong swims. Granton also took a couple of races with some quick swims. Fair play to Dunraven and Woodmansterne who never gave up and got on the podium a couple of times.


The second session involved reigning champions Henry Cavendish who are always tough to beat. However, Immanuel pushed them all the way and took a couple of golds which made for a very interesting gala. Furthermore, competition debutants Corpus Christie and Fircroft  put in a couple of very quick swims to get on the podium.


The third session was the battle of the Gipsy Hill Federation as well as St Mary's and Wyvern but it was St Mary's who took the majority of the golds in this gala.

Well done to all, especially as a lot of the participants have just started swimming. Congratulations to Henry Cavendish for retaining the title!


Year 1 & 2 Multi-Skills Festival


With over 500 children from 18 different schools participating in the Multi-skill festival we knew it was going to a busy day, but more importantly a fun day.


The competition set up gives children the opportunity to try 9 different activities which include dance, basketball, throwing activities and our personal favourite yoga!


Throughout the day, the children demonstrated brilliant skills, behaviour and effort. They took on every activity like a pro and showed lots of smiles which is what this competition is all about..FUN!


However, for extra energy and some unbelievable dance moves our school of the day was Van Gogh primary. Well done to Van Gogh and all our schools who took part, it was a pleasure to have all of you. 


Special thanks to London Nautical for having us, and the sports leaders for being inspiring role models and running some brilliant activities.



Year 5 & 6 Swimming Gala

Our 5th competition of the academic year was the highly anticipated Swimming Gala. 


Straight away the atmosphere was fantastic and the standard of swimming was very high. In our first session it was Julians Primary who dominated the medals followed very closely by Telferscot. There was also some strong swims by Woodmansterne & Dunraven. 


The second session was pretty open with the Gipsy Hill federation schools going head to head. Overall, the medals were shared out between all the schools. St Saviours, also swam a very quick boys front crawl which will no doubt go into the Moving Matters record book. 


The third session included reigning champions Henry Cavendish. Of course, they set the standards high straight away with some very quick times. They was pushed all the way by Holy Ghost as well as Raey and St Mary's but in the end Henry Cavendish had too much. 

On the podium, it was Henry Cav in 1st, Holy Ghost in 2nd and Julians Primary in 3rd. We look forward to seeing schools return for the year 3 & 4 gala. 



Year 5 & 6 Netball


On a beautiful morning we welcomed 16 teams for our year 5 & 6 Netball Competition.Despite the cold, it didn't take long for the schools to warm up with all players showing great skill and  a solid understanding of the game. Noticeable, was the movement off the ball to support the player on the ball and the standard of the shooting which was very clinical. Of the 3 groups Henry Cavendish, Vauxhall and St Mark's finished top going through to the semi final and Ashmole went through as the best runner up.

Both semi finals were extremely close, but it was St Marks and Vauxhall who progressed to the final. The final was played at great intensity and the accuracy of skill was outstanding. Nothing to separate the teams in normal time, the game went to extra time and after St Mark’s scored in the first minute they ended up hanging on to the lead to end up victorious. Elsewhere, Henry Cavendish edged out Ashmole to finish 3rd. 

Although all schools showed great sportsmanship throughout the day Sunnyhill Primary took the fair play award for the respect they showed other schools and the way they played the game.



Year 5 & 6 Tag Rugby Competition


With England playing in the World Cup final the following Saturday, schools turned up feeling inspired and excited. 

Throughout the group stage there was some terrific rugby played. Noticeable, was the high level of skills in attack and defence. With all schools well coached, the games were won by small margins making for some very interesting groups.


Semi finals were played at great intensity and in the end Julians edged Woodmansterne by 1 try and it was the same story in the other Semi final with Henry Cavendish beating Keyworth.


In the bronze medal game Keyworth beat Woodmansterne by 1 try to secure a 3rd place finish in their first ever Moving Matter's competition.

Then it was the final, Julians vs Henry Cavendish, perhaps the biggest rivalry in at Moving Matter's competitions in recent times. Henry Cavendish started by performing an unbelievable Haka but it was Julians who had the better of the early exchanges. From then on in it was a game dominated by great defence with the game finishing in a draw. Going into extra time, it was Henry Cavendish who ended up victorious, although either school would've been worthy champions. 

Overall a very fun day, with all schools playing the game in great spirit. CONGRATULATIONS everyone!



Year 5 & 6 Futsal Competition

This was the first ever Moving Matters Futsal competition and certainly won't be the last. We welcomed 21 teams and 19 schools to Kennington park, on a brilliant day of school sport.

Throughout the day we saw amazing technique, improvisation but most importantly CREATIVITY!

The players dealt expertly with the tighter spaces and the non bouncing ball, impressing all of the staff involved. Perhaps, the real difference between the teams was the standard of finishing and goalkeeping. 

After Bonneville eased through the knock-out stages, they met an impressive Elmwood team in the final. Bonneville went 2-0 up in the first 3 minutes and it was starting to look like it might be a similar story. However, Elmwood pulled 2 goals back and forced the game into extra time. 

The momentum with them, Elmwood grabbed another and held on, to win 3-2, sparking massive celebrations from the Elmwood team and staff!

Special mention to our losing semi-finalists, St Marys edging out Henry Cavendish in another tightly contested 3rd/4th place play-off tie.  

Larkhall took the fair play award after showing great sportsmanship throughout the day. 

Special mention to our MVPs, Gideon from Bonneville and Brandon from Henry Cavendish both goalkeepers, who showed tremendous courage and fantastic shot stopping on the day.

Thanks to everyone who came!

Year 3 and 4 Football Competition


What better way to start the Moving Matters Competition Programme for 2019-2020. 


A great day, minus the English weather, with some unbelievable football being played and fantastic sportsmanship being shown by all schools. 


In the final we had Julians vs Fenstanton. It was a classic encounter with Julians defending for their lives and hitting Fenstanton on the counter. In the end, Fenstanton had too much going forward and won the game 2-1. in 3rd place we had Henry Cavendish.

Elsewhere, St Helens won the fair play award for showing Moving Matters core values throughout the day.
