Not to be outdone by the success of the Athletics Team, the Field Gun Crew showed us how well they've come together as a team with a wonderful display of strength, skill and team effort. On Saturday 24th June, they took part in the Junior Field Gun competition, run as part of the Armed Forces Day on Plymouth Hoe. After three exciting runs, they were held off from the top prize by a record breaking effort from another Plymouth school, putting our team into a very creditable second place. We are extremely proud of the team, who have only been training together for seven months. Special mention should be given to Mr Benson and Mr Norris who have not only had to learn the rules and etiquette of field gun, but have also independently developed the team to a wonderfully high standard. 

On Friday 23rd June, a team of athletes attended a meet at All Saint's Academy to take on four other schools from Plymouth. Children from years 3 to 6 took part in running and relay races, vortex throwing and long jump. 


First places were won by Shakespeare children at a rapid rate and we were delighted to win the overall field champion title, the overall track champion title and the overall meet champion title. 


This is the second year in a row that Shakespeare has claimed all the silverware at the athletics meet and we are incredibly proud of the children for their hard work and hunger for victory. Thanks should be given to Mr Norris and Mr Howe for training the children in preparation for the event. 

On Thursday 3rd March, a team of girls from Year 6 went to All Saints Academy for a netball competition. As a relatively novice team, the girls performed brilliantly and ended up in a tough final against Pennycross Primary School. Both teams played well and at the final whistle it was a draw. The match was decided on a shoot out, which Pennycross won. We are delighted with the girls' determination in the final and they can be extremely proud of their runners up medals.


Well done Cortney, Leah, Shikela, Lacy, Kacey, Amy and Jasmine.
