We love sport at Fielding and work very hard to provide children with lots of opportunity to take part in as much as possible. We have our constellation tournaments which the whole school takes part in, our lunchtime challenges which the whole school has the opportunity to take part in and we have our sports teams who represent Fielding in competition. BUT... we know so many of our children play sport and enter competitions outside of school and we want to celebrate that too, so this year we are introducing Fielding Sporting Stars.
So here's how it works...
1: Take part in any sporting competition or event outside of school.
2: Make sure you get some photos! These can be of you taking part during an event, at the start or end of competition or holding up any trophies or medals etc.
3: Write up a short journalistic piece of writing using Word about the event and your achievements (this can be done by parents or children, just remember the authors name at the end!)
4: Send the report and any photos you would like published on the school website to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject heading 'Fielding Sporting Star'.
5: Wait for it to be published.
Its that easy! So who will be the very first Fielding Sporting Star? Get competing, get snapping and get writing!
6 / 7 May 2017 - London Spring Cup
This weekend I went to a great competition with around 250 gymnasts, around 30 clubs from 19 countries. I competed in the hoop and free routines competitions.I got second place for free and bronze for hoop and a trophy that is third.
I play tennis at least 3 times a week. I have lessons at the club West Middlesex Lawn Tennis Club. On Mondays and Wednesdays I have an academy lesson which is when kids have a lesson together. On Tuesdays I have a lesson by myself with my tennis coach. Sometimes I have a tournament like I did today and I could win a medal or a trophy and sometimes I go to the tennis club to play tennis with my brother, George in 5S. I enjoy myself so much playing tennis. On the 30/04/2017 I played a tennis tournament at Will To Win Lammas park. I came first in the tournament. I played 6 tough matches and won them all. If you can’t read what it says on the medal because it’s blurry, it says MIDDLESEX TENNIS CLUB TOUR WINNER. The final was my toughest match but I won. The score was 10-8.
Last weekend me and my sister Savannah ran in a 2.5 km charity fun run in Elthorne Park.
When we were running I did not stop the whole time which helped me finish in 18 minutes (beating my personal best by 2 minutes!). I am proud that I finished the race and I did it for charity.
Everyone was there to cheer us on and it was a lot of fun. I am glad we did it.
Savannah also did great and finished her first ever run in 17 minutes. We both got medals and a banana each at the end. I look forward to more runs in the future.
On Sunday 2 April 2017, I went for the first time to Grades in Canterbury Rhythmic Gymnastics Zone A , Levels 1-3 Competition. I did 2 routines and I got 2nd place for both of them!
I also got a certificate for an original and challenging routine.
In the first week of the Easter holidays, I moved up from Stage 4 to Stage 5 in my swimming lessons. I moved up because I did a whole length of back stroke and a whole length of front crawl. I got a certificate for achieving Stage 4. I’m now one of the youngest in Stage 5 but I am doing really well.
In the Easter holidays I competed in the London Regional Trampoline Championships. I was in the Under 15 category in a team with Alys and Elinor Greenshields, who went to Fielding. Our team won silver. It's the first time I've been in the under 15s - everyone is much taller than the Under 11s!
During the Easter holidays Charlie, Molly and I took part in a Swimathon, organised by our swimming school, to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Between the two teams (3 children per team) we raised over £800 and swam an amazing 1.5km in total. I swam 34 lengths, Charlie swam 26 lengths and Molly swam 16 lengths.
We all felt really proud of our achievements and very happy that we helped raise money for such a good cause. We hope to swim even further in the Swimathon next year!
Over half term I went on a skiing holiday with some of my friends and my family. I spent every morning from 9am-11am in the Italian Ski School. There were eight of us in the group. Ski school is really fun. I loved going on all the steep runs (especially the black runs).
At the end of the week we had a slalom race. You have to go at top speed around poles laid out down a ski slope. Before the race I was very nervous. I was waiting at the top of the slope until it was my turn to go. I was the penultimate racer in my group. I started well, picking up loads of speed and I think that helped me in the race. As I was turning I went too far down and my shoulder clipped a post and it was at that moment I thought the race was over. I carried on and zoomed to the finish line. Later that day I was so scared to hear the results. I went to the ski school office to see the results and I couldn’t find my name. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw:
1ST HARRIS RURY 38.52
I was really happy to have won – even if they spelt my name wrong.
Later that day there was a presentation for all the ski school groups. When it was our group’s turn I was presented with a trophy cup.
My favourite sport is tennis, and I practice at West Middlesex Tennis Club, playing in their Academy twice a week.
In December I took part in the end of year U9's tournament and won the gold medal.
I won 6 matches in total with my toughest match being against Jake Toynton in Year 3.
Winning the gold medal was great, but more important to me was the Cadbury's selection box that was also part of the prize!!
We played Ealing Stars away and I scored a hat trick. Coach gave me Man of the Match for "a great hat trick". We played five-a-side and on my team was Tristan (3F) who set me up for all my goals. We won 5-2.
I have been doing Tae Kwon Do since I was 5 years old (3 years). On Sunday, I did a Tae Kwon Do grading. I already had a yellow belt with a green tag and after my grading I now have my green belt. I got an L grade out of A (advance), O (ordinary) and L (low). To pass my grading I had to learn patterns called Dan Gun and Do San.
On Sunday 23rd October I did a rope routine and I came first. I have also received trophy as a total because I got gold medals in three competitions. I did Four Seasons in London Rhythmic Gymnastics
Then on Sunday 30th October, I went to Bath Open Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships 2016 where I did a rope and free routine. For my free I got a bronze and for my rope I got a gold. I also got for a total two routine Gold medal.
On Sunday 6th November I competed in a Karate tournament and won gold in the Team Kumite (fighting) and silver in Junior Kata- 3rd Kyu.
I have been doing karate since year 1 and now I am a brown and white stripe belt.
On Sunday I competed in the London Warriors Cup, Jiu Jitsu and came second. I had to compete against two boys in the division above, they were older and heavier.
I won 14 points to 0 in the first round. My last fight was tough, I lost that round but won silver. I can't wait to do another competition
On Saturday 8th October 2016 I played in a rugby tournament for my team, Ealing Trailfinders, at Twickenham Stadium. After the tournament I watched the Argentina v Australia international match at the stadium.
When I walked on to the pitch for the first time it didn’t feel any different to any other rugby pitch except the turf was a lot nicer. My team won a game and lost a game which I’m pretty happy with because the teams were quite good.
The match afterwards was really interesting to watch because it helped with our tactics and I enjoyed it. My grandad likes rugby so we got him tickets to come along. He was very jealous that I got to play at Twickenham.
Sunday the 2nd October 2016, I played my first match with Hanwell FC football team , and I nearly scored a great goal.
My first position was as a defender, then I played as a mid fielder and finally as an attacker. We won the match 8-4.
Despite being a hard match I greatly enjoyed it. Whilst playing the match I felt also very excited and proud. Hopefully next time I will score more goals.
Congratulations to Miss Drage who ran two half marathons two weeks in a row! She ran the Ealing Marathon with an extremely respectable time of 2h3mins and the Cardiff Marathon in 2h7mins. Well done Miss Drage!
Last year I had a very good cricket season. I played a lot of matches for Ealing Cricket Club. We won 7 matches and lost 2. My friends Toby, Jasper and Thomas were also there but I made a lot of new friends too. We played against teams from north and west London. It was funny when a deer walked across the pitch against Teddington and we had to stop play.
It was very fun because we got to bat and bowl every single game. We bowled 2 overs in each game and bat for 4 overs in a pair. I was the top scorer with exactly 100 runs in the 8 games I played. We also played two hard ball matches just with our team.
Last Sunday I took part in the Ealing Mini Mile Run. It was my second year and my younger brother’s first time (Louis Ryder – 2S). Even though, we started at the back, we came 8th and 36th , respectively, out of 114kids in our category (6-9 years). Next year, we will make sure we arrive there earlier to start at the front. My ambition is to win my category.
This summer on Sunday the 25th of September I took part in the Ealing Mini Mile event at the half marathon. I have taken part 4 times but this time it was my best by a long way. I finished in 7 minutes and 12 seconds the same as my friend Marta and just ahead of my friend Lily. In the 6-11 girls category we finished 5th, 6th and 7th. It has really helped doing all of the miles in PE and cross country club and we all really enjoyed it! Also it was really good to see so many Fielding students there.
Also in the summer I took part in a triathlon with Mart, my brother Noah and his best friend Thomas. We did a 50 metres swim and a 2k bike ride and a 1k run. I think we were quick but we could do a lot better next year. I really enjoyed the swim because the pool was really nice, but it was very cold. I liked it because we could do three of my favourite sports in one race.
My brother and I ran the Ealing mini marathon on Sunday. It was my third time running marathon and Ben's first. It's a great feeling when you cross the finish line and we are really proud to have raised over £520 for leukaemia research.
I have been doing ballet since I was three years old and I have just passed my grade 4 ballet exam with a merit. I am currently preparing for my grade 5 exam. I plan to audition for London Children's Ballet so I can perform at the theatre.
I also play basketball and I been invited to join the Phoenician Phoenix team.
Three times a week I practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and recently I have been training with world champion BJJ fighter to help prepare me for my first BJJ competition at the end of October.
Sunday was the Human Race triathlon events at Dorney Lake. My dad and brother competed (& did very well) and so did I. I was too young for the triathlon but was able to enter the 2k run for 9-12 year olds. I ran it in 10 mins 40 seconds and came third overall.
I love trampolining, I go twice a week to the Zero Gravity club at Elthorne Sports Centre. My coach is brilliant and I’ve made lots of friends there.
I love the moment at the top of a jump when you feel like you’re flying. There are so many moves to try out, there’s always something new to learn.
Competitions are fun too – this summer I entered the 2016 London Championships and won Silver in the Under 11 Elementary category. It’s a wonderful feeling to get a medal – it’s also a medal for the people who helped me get this far.
During the summer holidays I attended a week long football training course with QPR. At the end of the course, I was chosen as Player of the Week for having a great attitude, good football skills and scoring lots of goals in all my matches!
This summer I learnt how to surf in Devon. Surfing is now my favourite sport. I had two surfing lessons and can now stand up on my surfboard.
