Thank you to all parents for their continued support for both teams. 

Dance Showcase- 19th December 2016
The end of term celebrated the successes of Years 4, 5 and 6 who showcased historical dance pieces to both the school and parents. The children who have been working alongside Premier Performing Arts, were able to choreograph dances linked to their topics, including an Egyptian dance by Year 6, based around the pharaohs and a Tudor  dance from Year 4, styling their movement on similar dances from the period. Year 5 finished the morning, with a superb piece devised from the Victorian era.  

Hockey Tournament- 25th November 2016
St. Norbert’s took part in a another exciting hockey tournament at Glen Park, Surfleet. The organised tournament in association with Spalding Hockey Club, started with a win from the A team and a draw for the B team. The B team went on to have one of their greatest tournaments to date winning two of their played games and only facing one loss overall. The A team fought fantastically, despite losing one of their games and came out to win their final game without conceding any goals. A superb effort by all.

Sports Day- 22nd June 2016
St. Norbert’s 2016 Sports Day was a huge success despite the rain trying desperately to interfere with the enjoyment and competitive spirit of all the children. The day began with Key Stage 2 children sharing a Rio Olympic style warm-up to prepare for their House team events which included Tag-Rugby, Football, Cross-Country, Netball, Target practice, shot-putt, Trim-Trail and a selection of problem solving activities. The children demonstrated a high level of enthusiasm and engagement across all of the events with some children beating their original pre-sports day records! The afternoon was dedicated to Key Stage 1 who enjoyed a break in the weather to collaborate in their houses to successfully complete a range of skill building activities including, target shooting, balance and coordination challenges and hockey slalom before embarking on their flat races to conclude another successful sporting year!

Football Match- 28th April 2016
Our second match of the season saw a cold and wet trip to Moulton resulting in a 3-0 loss. It was a harsh result despite playing some of our best football as we failed to finish our chances. The whole team should be proud of their efforts with Aidan having a superb game from midfield, Mckenzie defending as though his life depended on it, and Arnas making two terrific low saves. Well done to all involved.

Football Match- 21st April 2016
The opening match of the season saw a trip to Gedney Drove End result in a 7-2 win. On a very tight pitch the team did well to try and pass the ball in the first half which ended 5-0 with Arnas making a terrific flying save to keep the home side out. In a much closer second half McKenzie completed his hat trick with a 3rd long range effort before Gedney scored a couple of late goals. Other goals were scored by Harley, Charlie (2) and Jude with excellent work from Ana, Julia, Josh, Aidan and Kamil contributing to the win. A positive start to our season-Well Done!

Bikeability- 29th February 2016
Some children from Year 5 and 6 have enjoyed the experience of taking part in Bikeability. During the week they have been learning new skills on how to ride safely on the roads of Spalding. Children learnt to turn from minor to major roads and vice versa, how to pass parked cars and how to stop and start safely. Well done to all the children!

Dance  Showcase- 24th February 2016
Wednesday afternoon saw 15 children from years 3,4,5&6 taking part in a dance festival organised by Agilitas at South Holland Centre, Spalding. Judges commented how stillness highlighted the strength of the performance. It was well timed with graceful arm movements and expression. All children were in time with music. Well done St. Norbert's Primary, you shined on stage.

Quicksticks play off- 23rd February 2016
St Norbert’s Quicksticks team was involved in a play-off to decide which two teams would represent South East Lincolnshire in the Lincolnshire Schools Games in July.  The team were successful in their two matches with a 11-1 win against Fleetwood Lane followed by a 7-3 win against Bourne Westfield who will join them in the finals.

Netball Tournament 9th February 2016
Children from Years 5 and 6 took part in a Netball tournament at Spalding High School. Although it was their first tournament the children were in high spirits and excited to put in to practice the skills they had been working on. The A team were lucky enough to finish third in their group with a win and draw and a loss. A brilliant effort from the whole team displaying true sportsmanship throughout. The B team showed true grit and determination and even though they finished in 5th place their dedication shone through. Well done to Matthew in the B team for his outstanding effort throughout the game and to Jude Thompson in the A team for his respectful play and impeccable manners throughout.  Thank you to Mrs Stanberry for her time and coaching the Netball team for the school.

Tag Rugby Tournament- 1st December 2015
Year 5 represented St Norberts at the Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby tournament organised by Agilitas at the Spalding Rugby Club on Tuesday. The rain held off and the sun even made an appearance later in the day, although rain overnight had made the pitches very muddy and slippery and the children struggled to stay upright! All children played well and really enjoyed the experience returning to school a little more muddier than when they left! Our top try scorer of the day was Olivia D with Jacob, Anya, Angelika, Olivia R, Tiago, Alan and Matthew all working really hard together as a team with some great passes and runs. Well done!

 

Tag Rugby Tournament- 20th October 2015

Blessed with sunshine and enthusiasm 10 children from Years 3 and 4 took part in a Tag rugby festival at Spalding rugby club on the Tuesday before half term. A great experience organised by Agilitas Sport aided by year 10 Grammar school boys the children were split into mixed groups to practice and refine their tag techniques. After lunch a mini tournament finished the well organised day. Well done to all the children who took part and represented the school well.

 

Hockey Tournament- 9th October 2015

On Friday the 9th of October St. Norbert’s took part in their first hockey tournament of the season at Surfleet. Both teams played exceptionally well, working as a team and supporting one another. The A team were triumphant in all their games, with a strong defence and accurate passing the team were able to score a number of goals only conceding 1 overall. The B team worked extremely hard and had a good start to the season with their new team including debuts from both Erin McMurray and Igor Chomicz. The strong defence ensured there were very few goals conceded overall and some promising attack, places them in a good position for the rest of the season. Many thanks to all the parents who were able to attend and support them. 

 

Cross Country- 6th October 2015

Sunshine, trainers, smiles and positive attitudes were the order of the day for St Norbert's amazing cross country team, who took part in the South Lincolnshire Primary School Cross Country event on Tuesday at Spalding Rugby Club arranged by Agilitas. Each race had approximately 130 competitors with our Year 5/6 boys setting the scene with Aidan coming 6th, Jude 34th, Arnas 35th, Joshua 47th and Alan 111th. The year 5/6 girls race saw Adria and Anya  competing and a close finish - 28th and 29th respectively. The year 3/4 boys not to be outdone with George finishing 44th, Tom 78th, Vincent  112th and Oliver Wydra 115th. Finishing the event the way it had started the year 3/4 girls saw Erin, not to be outdone by her brother, coming home in 6th, Milena 48th, Amelia 57th and Francesca 98th. A fantastic well done to all of our competitors representing the school they all tried their best and entered into the team spirit on the day cheering each other on. 

Football Match- 20th May 2015

St Norbert's rounded off their football league campaign with a comfortable 7-1 win over Holbeach St Marks and Gedney Drove End. A ruthless first half saw Bradley open the scoring early on before Aidan quickly doubled the lead and despite a St Marks goal halving the lead Bradley was to have the final say grabbing 3 more well taken goals to make the score 5-1 at halftime. The second half saw Gytis make his debut in goal and Jude move upfront with immediate effect as he grabbed his first goal of the season, the final goal of the game came after Charlie dribbled through 3 defenders before calmly side footing into the bottom corner for his second of the season. Well played everyone throughout our 4 games especially our  captain McKenzie for keeping the team organised. Our 4 games produced 2 wins and 2 defeats with 16 goals scored and 7 conceded, goalscorers were Bradley 7, Aidan 5, Charlie 2, Josh and Jude 1. Finally a big thanks to the parents for transporting and supporting the team!

Hockey Tournament Final- 15th May 2015

Having won all 4 Primary School Tournaments in 2014/2105 scoring 35 goals and conceding just 5 in the process meant very little as one loss could spoil the celebrations for the team dominating Primary School Hockey at present.  

St. Norbert’s Roman Catholic Primary School Hockey ‘A’ Team were crowned Primary Schools Champions extending their unbeaten run to 24 games in all competitions, but John Harrox’s gave them a nail biting finish to the 2014/2015 Primary Schools Tournaments that spectators could not believe and unlikely to forget in a hurry!

 

Football Match- 12th March 2015

The first league game of the season saw St. Norbert’s record a comfortable win at St. Bartholomew’s by 8 goals to nil. After a slow start with both teams finding their feet Bradley finally broke the deadlock from close range and soon added a second to leave the score 2-0 at halftime. The second half saw some good possession leading to 6 well worked team goals with the pick of the bunch being a volley from Charlie and a brave header from Bradley which completed his hat trick. Further goals were scored by Aidan (another hat trick) and Joshua. At the back a clean sheet was kept through excellent organisation by Captain Mckenzie and Jude, Harley , Ella and Ana working hard to deny the opposition space. A hugely successful first fixture!

 

Netball Tournament
Our St Norbert's netball team faced tough competition on Tuesday as they competed at the Agilitas Netball Tournament.  After a nail-biting episode of penalty shoot outs we scored and took our team through to the quarter finals. All players were amazing and contributed brilliantly. Team work, good sportsmanship and resilience shone through. Well done to the 9 children who competed!!

 

Quicksticks TournamentHockey photo
We are extremely pleased with the way that St. Norbert's Hockey Quicksticks team played on Tuesday 27th January.
