Football @ Kings' 4th October 2023

On Wednesday 4th October, 7 of the boys from Year 5 and 6 went to Kings to take part in a football tournament. We played 4 games overall. We won 2 matches, drew 1 and lost 1. Lloyd was the golden boot winner after scoring 4 of our 8 goals. It was really nice playing against our friends from another school but it wasn’t nice falling on the spikey AstroTurf. We passed the ball a lot and sometimes did long ball from the defence to our striker. Overall it was a really enjoyable tournament and we would give our effort 4/5. By Lloyd and Mason Moore

End Ball Yr 1&2 @ Kings' 3rd October

On Wednesday evening, a group of children from Orange and Red class went to Kings to take part in an End ball tournament. End ball involves throwing the ball to different teammates. You cannot move when you have the ball. The goal is to get the ball from one end to another. The throwing, catching and turning is quite funny. Sometimes we almost fell over.

Scarlett– I really enjoyed making new friends at the school.

Keira– I enjoyed everything and liked mum watching.

Multi-Skills event @ Kings' 19th September 20233 Year 3&4

Thursday 22nd June @ Winchester Sport & Leisure Park

On 22nd June, we went to the Hampshire Games Festival –which was at Winchester, Leisure Centre. We set off at 8:30am , with Mr Jewell (coach) and Mrs Simpson. The people that went were: Lisa, Charlotte, Tyler, Bernard, Lacey, Dominic, Jenisha, Evie, Kaylee and Lexi . When we arrived, we found a spot to sit down. There was a parade and there were over a hundred schools with flags. We walked around the track. There were many schools all wearing different coloured t-shirts, we were wearing pink. The first activity was dance with Lauren from Intergr8. We did a flag dance, it was interesting. Most of us enjoyed the dance. Next was treasure hunting, Charlotte was the captain, Lisa was co-captain and Dominic was the voice captain. Charlotte guessed the word – which was respect – on the first try. And it was right. After that was lunch which was delicious. After lunch, we played Kinball. Kinball was a ball that’s bigger than a normal ball. We played a game that’s like bulldog. We played three rounds and Charlotte won all three rounds. We had ‘create a game’ next. We created a game and the group that won could take the equipment back to their own school. Sadly, we didn’t win, but we had a wonderful time creating the game. The time went flying past and we had lots of fun. It was time to head back to school. Even though it was hot, we all did our very best job and put in lots of effort. The other schools did a brilliant job too. They supported us when we were losing. ‘My favourite activity was dance because the flag dance was unique.’ Year 6, Lisa. ‘My favourite activity was treasure hunting because I like how you got do it on your own in your group. It felt very mature.’ Year 6, Charlotte.

Friday 9th June 2023 @ Winchester Sport & Leisure Park

Last Friday, children from Years 4-6 went to the Leisure Centre to participate in the swimming gala. There were over 20 schools in attendance and the whole of the swimming area was packed. We did pretty well overall and the girls finished 6th overall in the freestyle. Box in Year 5 was amazing and helped us finish 2nd in a race by overtaking 4 people on the last stretch. A moment to behold for the day, was when ‘The YMCA’ played over the speakers and everyone stopped what they were doing to join in. We feel very proud of our achievements and we are very thankful to Coach Jewell and Miss Wood for taking us. By Niall and Harry

Athletics Event @ Kings' Wednesday 25th May

Football Game @ Micheldever

On Wednesday we travelled to Micheldever to take part in our first football friendly
match for years. Once we got there, we practised free kicks for our warm up. The
Micheldever coach blew the whistle for the game to start. We got the kick off and
played really well in the first half. After approximately 10 minutes, Jasmine scored
a half volley that went into the top corner (top bins!). The Micheldever team
stepped up their game and the match became a lot harder. After about 20 minutes,
Leila scored our second goal which was made after we pressured the Micheldever
defender and Leila finished in the bottom corner. We did score an own goal, but we
finished the game with one last goal. We did a celebration after we won, but made
sure we shook hands with the other team. Thank you Micheldever for hosting us.
By Leila and Ayva

Year 2 Event At Kings'

We went to Kings School and we practised racket skills. We played squash, badminton, tennis and table tennis with a ping pong ball. We felt delighted and excited because we were with each other and we went to each stage one at a time. We found it easy to hard when playing badminton. It was a bit tricky when we got to the big cones. They WERE HUGE! At the end, we could have a photo with a teddy bear. I liked the racket skills at Kings School and would like to practise there again.

Tag Rugby Event @ Winchester Rugby Club 27th March 2023

It was cold and gloomy at the start of the tournament. We had 8 games to play and lots of tries to score. We all had fun and never let our heads drop if we lost. Dewansh, Alfie, Elliott, Ishneha, Anne, Jacob, Lilly, Leila, George, Charlotte, Liam and Serena came along. 
We set off from school at 10:00 and made sure we all had our kits and lunches. Then, we walked to the Winchester Rugby Club and did some warm-ups before we started our first match against Hiltonbury and won 5-1. It filled us up with confidence. We also won 2-1 and 1-0 against other schools. Jacob had an amazing run when he darted past 6 defenders left and right. Alfie scored an amazing 7 tries for Team Winnall.  
We kept that confidence throughout the whole tournament, we are all proud of ourselves and received a certificate for the best behaved team. Thank you Coach and Mrs Ashby for taking us.

Girls Football Event At Kings' School Wednesday 22nd February

When I woke up, I felt excited because I was going to the football
tournament. To begin with, we got our stuff and got ready. The tension
was high, we were hoping we could win. The feeling of determination
and fear was around the room, but there was also excitement. When we
got there, there were loads of students and teachers. Overall, there
were 9 teams there. We had lots of close games, but our finest
performance was when we beat Micheldever after Jasmine scored a
brilliant goal. We all celebrated, tried our best and had great fun.
Thank you to Coach, Mrs Wilson and Miss Burrage for taking us and
thank you to Kings’ for hosting us and having their students help us and
lead the warm up.
Jasmine and Lilly- Year 6

Hockey Tournament at Kings' School Tuesday 7th February 2023

As we got prepared to go to the hockey tournament, we felt nervous and excited. In the car on the way there we were singing songs from the radio until we parked up at Kings. We met at the astroturf, did our warm up and were helped by the Kings’ pupils running the event. We had two matches and tried our best in each one. There were some super saves, defending and passing. We had really good fun and hopefully can play again soon.

Cross country event Kings' School - Wednesday 25th January 2023


On the 25th of January, Last week, a few year 5s and 6s participated in a cross country tournament (which made my legs numb) The tournament was based in Kings school. There were 12 pupils going. We are here now to tell you about our experience. (It was as cold as Antarctica.)


After 2 races and 30mintues of standing on the muddy field, the year 5 and 6’s race started.


As I stood there in a ready position, all the girls looked very intimidating. After the whistle blew, all the girls ran all over me spraying mud on my face! >: (


Ishneha started off in first potion with Serena close behind. Slowly, the girls went round a corner and out of sight.


After a few minutes, I caught up with Ishneha with a painful look on my face.


I looked ahead and saw a girl meters away from everybody running I noticed her shirt was blue and remembered that she was from ST bedes then all the memories of the badminton tournament came flooding like a tsunami into my head(they literally thrashed us in the tournament



The races were great and we had a lot of fun!


Luckily, we beat them and a sense of accomplishment filled the atmosphere.  We met a few old friends too, which made our day!


After the girls’ race, the boys started.  Alfie, Leevi and I began in first, second and third.  We set off and went round the corner.  The path was muddy and steep, and the race hard and tiring, but in the end we made it through, beating many students.

Girls Football Tournament Toynbee School 24th January


On January the 24th 12 children from y5 and y6 attended a girls football tournament at Toynbee school in Chandlers Ford.  There were teams from lots of different schools around Winchester.  It was cold but that didn’t stop us!



We played 6 games against different schools, including South Wonston and Weeke.  Each game was 5 minutes long.



Every 2 minutes coach would swap children around to play football so that everyone got a turn. Thank you to coach for supporting us!



There were 4 different games going on at the same time.  We drew 4 games and lost two. The games ended without us scoring any goals but we still really enjoyed ourselves.



After each game we had to shake hands with the other team and say good game.  This was important to show good sportsmanship.


Even if we lost a match we never put our heads down, we always kept them up.  I think we can all be proud of ourselves for being so determined!



Well done to all of the year 5 and 6 girls that took part in the football tournament and thank you to all of the parents who came to support us – I’m sure the Year 5 girls will be back next year!!

Boy's Football Tournament Kings' School 18th January

George On the 19th of January 8 children from year 5 and 6 attended the kings secondary school football tournament. The people who came were: Charlie May, Elliott Watson, George Pearsall, Dewansh Thapa, Joedy Hutchins, Lloyd Hamlin, George Ascroft, Neil Rolfe.  Winnall got unlucky and had to play 5 times in row.


Dewansh We were beaten by other schools in three of our matches but managed to draw twice.  We did score one goal and the person who scored was Elliott Watson.  The person who assisted Elliott was Charlie May with a beautiful cross in while Elliott tapped it in.


Charlie It was very unpredictable and the goals were very long but short so not what we are used to normally. [Include something about what you all enjoyed!]

Winnall Swim Team - June 2015

On the 5th of June, 8 Winnall students went to an exhilarating swimming gala.

We would like to thank the amazing parents and teachers who cheered us on and made it happen. We all had butterflies in our stomach, however this did not stop the Winnall team putting in an outstanding performance (four lucky pupils even got into the invitational race!) Again we have to thank the people who made this happen we could not have done this without you. I think our strongest swimming activity was relay, which we all did fantastic in. So thank you for supporting us!
