On Saturday 23rd February (during our half term break) some of the staff, children and parents of Carlton Road Academy gave up their time to take part in the annual swimming gala for Boston schools. The children that took part and represented our school swam their best and had a fantasic attitude towards the competition. Altough we didn’t win, the team spirit remained strong and we are very proud of our swimmers. Thank you!
Carlton Road sports teams have been very busy in the first two terms of this Academic Year. Here is what we have been up to:
Year 3 & 4
On the 5th October Our Year 3 & 4 football team went to a tournament for their first time and finished 3rd and received their first medals, well done.
Year 5 & 6 Girls
Our Year 5 & 6 girls’ football team have entered two competitions this year. A new Boston School Girls’ League and the Connect Sports Partnership Indoor Football Tournament.
The Girls have played 2 games in the League so far and are loving it. The first game was against St Nicolas Primary which they won 4:2. The second was against St Mary’s Primary which they also won 4:1. There next game is on 11th Dec against Hawthorn Tree, wish them luck.
On 23rd November at the Indoor Football Tournament the girls finished 2nd in a very close competition against Staniland Academy. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves, only losing one game, but scoring more goals than any other team. Well done girls!
Year 5 & 6 Boys
Our Year 5 & 6 boys’ football team have also entered two competitions this year. The Boston Schools League and the Woodthorpe Cup.
In the league we have played 3 games: the first was against Hawthorn Tree, which we lost 9-0, but then we quickly turned it around a week later against Park Academy winning 7-0, the third game was against Staniland which we also won 4.0.
In the Woodthorpe Cup we played Old Leake away in the first round and won 9-0. In the second round we played Sibsey Free School at home on a very muddy pitch and in very strong winds. The game was very tight, but we prevailed against the conditions winning 4-2. We are waiting to see who we will meet in the semi-finals.
On 9th and 15th November the Connect Sports Partnership put on a Dodgeball Tournament for Years 4 and 5. This was the first time the event had been run so it was very well attended. Teams had to have an even mix of boys and girls with playing strong teams in both completions. Carlton Road’s Year 4 team came out on top with a close battle with Pioneers School.
We were also victorious in the Year 5 tournament, taking home the medals for the team got the most catches during the day.
On 30th November Carlton Road entered the Connect Sports Partnership Tag Rugby Tournament. It was a very competitive competition which saw 6 teams battle it out for the medals. It was a mixed event with teams playing a minimum of 2 girls in each game. Two teams dominated all of their games throughout the day until they played each other in the last game of the day. The two teams were Tower Road and Carlton Road; it was a great game but Carlton Road succumbed to Tower Road’s dominance, finishing second on the day.
On Saturday 1st December Carlton Road took part in the annual Boston Schools’ Cross Country Championships. We took two boys’ teams, but the girls ran as individuals. It was wet and windy, which made it a real cross country race, as the runners had to do two laps of the sports field at the High School. A fast pace was set from the start in both the boys’ and girls’ races which meant the field soon became strung out. Carlton Roads Boys’ “A” team finished 3rd, with boys finishing 6th, 11th, 18th and 33rd = 68pts. Carlton Road Boys “B” team finished 10th, with boys finishing 40th, 41st, 43rd and 57th = 181pts.
The girls’ positions were 19th, 43rd and 44th.
Carlton Road Academy Football Team have been very successful again this year, reaching the final of the Woodthorpe Cup.
To celebrate their success, all Carlton Road pupils and their parents are invited to watch the final, which will be held at Boston United football ground on Wednesday 28th March 2018.
WOODTHORPE CUP FINAL
Carlton Rd v Tower Road – kick off 4pm
We hope that as many pupils and parents as possible will be able to attend to create a great occasion and to celebrate the teams’ achievements this year.
If your child is intending to watch the football match, they must be supervised by an adult, and will not be the responsibility of Carlton Road Academy staff.
We look forward to seeing you there!
The children in year 3 took part in a health and fitness day where they learnt about the body and what different foods do to their bodies. They also learnt about teeth and their muscles and how they work and can be looked after.
Children worked very hard to understand the different food groups looking at what was healthy and what they needed to eat to help their bodies grow and stay fit. In the afternoon, children took part in some fitness activities, learning what they could do to keep their muscles fit and working properly. The children had a great time going around and doing all the activities.
