Cross Country at Crystal Palace 7th Mar 2018 - 3 images

On a cold and wet November morning the year 5 and 6 Unicorn Cross Country team congregated in Crystal Palace Park. They joined over 54 Bromley Schools competing in the 55th running of the Bromley Primary Schools Cross Country Championships, which was first staged in December 1988. The 15 pupil strong team raced against 1,200 participants and ran a distance of 1,800 metres per race. The Unicorn pupils showed high spirit and aspiration to further improve on their previous race positions. For Mia, Fynn and Annie this was to be their first Cross Country race and, despite the nerves, all completed their races with respectable positions. The year 5 girls’ team showed real promise with the majority of the girls coming in below the first 100. Luke in Year 5 attained the lowest position in the Unicorn team (21st), even after falling head over heels in the mud during the race! Huge congratulations go to all of the pupils who took part; you showed real commitment and determination to do your best. Full results about race positions, individual medallists and winning teams are published on the http://www.bpscca.co.uk website. Special thanks must also go to Miss Elvines, Miss Letchford, Mr Harrison and Mrs Robinson for supporting the event through marshalling the race course and for collating the positions of the pupils at the end of each race. Without this support we could not run the event safely and smoothly. Thank you also for all the parents that came and supported the team. It is a huge team effort and really does require a team to make it work. Details of the race for year 3 and 4 are to follow in the new year.


Athletics Competition 29th Jun 2017 - 14 images

On Thursday 22nd June 24 year 5 and 6 pupils at Unicorn meet at Norman Park to participate in the medium sized schools Athletics competition. There were 12 schools that attended the event from across the Borough of Bromley with the small schools and larger sized schools competing on other dates. The children were able to participate in no more than two events. The events included track events; 75m sprint, 150m sprint and 600m run and field events; howler throw, standing long jump and standing triple jump. Each child also participated in relay events for boys, girls and mixed teams. The morning began with bright sunny weather where the children participated in their heats to determine where they should be placed for the afternoon final races or field events. As the clouds rolled in we all took shelter under Mrs Quashie’s gazebo as the heavens opened and contemplated how the children had performed. After a well deserved lunch break the field events resumed. Oscar in the howler throw event throw an amazing throw which put him in the top 8 of the 16 children which participated. Max also participated in the howler throw and he threw the second highest distance of the day. Both of these performances resulted in the boys being asked back to compete in the individual finals to the Bromley Borough competition across all schools in July. Zoe and Pier also participated in the howler throwing event which the girls felt apprehensive about. However, despite the nerves Zoe came in the top 12 of the girls which competed in the A group. Next up was the triple jump where Bertie came first in the B group finals. Miss Hayes and Mrs Crow were very impressed with all the children who participated in the field events as many of them were unfamiliar to the children and they tried so hard to perfect the techniques. After the mixed relay event the track finals commenced. Jayden came 1st in his c group final running over a distance of 150m. Tyler ran with stamina and strength to win the A gro


Korfball Tournament 9th Mar 2017 - 11 images

On Thursday 22nd February three teams from Unicorn entered into a Korfball tournament against five other Bromley schools. The year 5 and 6 team played four matches that lasted 6 minutes each. The children played well as a team and all tried their sporting best. This resulted in them beating Balgowan and Worsley Bridge with Flynn and Charlie scoring most of the goals. They lost against Hayes and Oak Lodge. Overall they came third in their category. The year 3 and 4 children entered an A and B team. These children who had only been playing Korfball for the best part of 6 months played with courage and determination. The match against Oak Lodge B team resulted in a 2-1 win to the Unicorn A team with Isaac and Ryan scoring fantastic goals. All the Unicorn teams were beaten by Hayes who were the overall winners of the category. The Unicorn A team came second place overall and the B team came 4th. The children enjoyed the tournament and the opportunity to show the skills they had learnt from attending the Korfball club. Isaac from Year 4 made the comment “We all had confidence when we arrived and the tournament has been so much fun. I love playing Korfball.” Bea in Year 6 made the comment “I was apprehensive about playing in this tournament but Korfball is a great sport and I like playing with my friends.” Mrs Crow (the PE subject leader) was impressed with the children’s positive attitudes towards the sport and the demonstration of good team spirit that the children showed as they played in mixed gender teams. All the children encouraged each other throughout the tournament and celebrated wins together. It was a great event.
