Fitzmaurice A team have practiced for months and all their hard work paid off on Wednesday 27th March when they went to the West-Wiltshire Netball finals and WON! There were 10 teams and for the first section the teams were split into two groups. We had to play everyone in the group and the top two teams from each of the group went through to the semi-finals. We were top of our first group so we went through. There were 4 teams left and we won all our games which means we are now West-Wiltshire Champions 2019. We will soon be going to the Wiltshire finals, on May 30th.
We are very proud of our achievement and so is Miss Blake.

On Thursday the 14th March, the Fitz netball teams competed in a tournament against Christchurch and Winsley. All teams tried their best and worked well in a team; we all had so much fun and it was an amazing opportunity for us. By the end, Fitz A team and Winsley passed to the next tournament which will take place at Kingdown School on the 27th March and we are all very excited. A big thanks to the teachers/TA’s that helped; Mrs Hatcher, Anna and most of all Miss Blake. We couldn’t have done it without them.

On 12th February a group of 29 children took part in the West Wiltshire Dance Festival. 18 schools danced on the night and 100 pupils will have participated over 3 nights and had an experience of a lifetime, like we have. All the dancers were amazing (but Fitz were the best!) Our quotes from the evening are:
"The bright lights were shining on me as I danced, it was such an amazing feeling!" - Beth
"It was such an honour to perform on such an amazing stage with such amazing people!" - Sofia
We would like to say thank you to Miss Blake who arranged the club and Liz Vaughton who choreographed the dance.

In the fifth and final game we played The Avenue and drew 1-1. The scorer of the match was Dan. Our team was amazing and can I say thank you to the whole team, not just the scorers. This wouldn’t have happed without the organisation of Mr Tozer and Miss Blake.

On Tuesday 20th November, the Fitz Football team left school to play in the friendly tournament at Christchurch. There was Christchurch, Winsley, Westwood and Fitzmaurice at the tournament.
Our first game was against Westwood, it was tough but we managed to score with a right-footed finish from Clem into the bottom corner.
Our second game was against the hosts, Christchurch. They were lucky to take the lead in the first minute with a breakaway goal. Luckily, later on, Thomas made the scores equal with a right-footed volley to end the game 1-1.
Our third and final game was against the unbeaten Winsley. The game was tense but late on Winsley scored as the goal scorer was too quick for our defence and the game ended 1-0 to Winsley.
The tournament ended with a win, a draw and a loss. We look forward to our next game as a team.
