Year 4 Recorder concert Friday 20th October 2017

Year 4 have been learning to play the descant recorder this term. They have learned to read music from the stave (traditional music notation), play with a good quality tone and perform pieces at a suitable tempo (speed). We held a concert for our families and Mrs Thomas and the Year 4 staff were very proud of the pupil`s performances. Super team work everyone. We hope you enjoy the attached recordings. 


Dear all,

As you may or may not be aware, Year 6 recently completed a competition to advertise the forthcoming visit of a special guest speaker, Neil Griffiths, to Chilcote Primary School. As always all the competition entries were outstanding. Look below to see a little taster of them - or hopefully you might catch the real life entries around the school. 

Neil is an expert in English, especially in the art of storytelling and reading aloud and he will be visiting Chilcote Primary School on the 15th November 2017 to meet the children, conduct a staff meeting and hold a talk to parents (which everyone is invited to).

The event for the parents will begin at 2:35pm and conclude at 3:15pm. We would like as many people to attend as possible, as this is an amazing event and doesn’t happen every day! At the end Neil will be selling books and, probably, signing them too! What else could you wish for?!

You can find out more about Neil at: https://cornertolearn.co.uk/

Thanks for reading,

Josh, Year 6.

Chilcote Girls vs St Bernards

On Friday 20th October the Chilcote girls' football team played their next league fixture against St Bernards at Yardley Wood playing fields.

The game started with St Bernards on top. They played some lovely football but to their credit the Chilcote girls defended valiantly. Unfortunately, after 5 minutes St Bernards took the lead when one of their players raced past the Chilcote rearguard and found the back of the net. 5 minutes later the same thing happened again and St Bernards had a 2v0 lead. Then, Chilcote were awarded a free kick just outside of the box which Tamsin took and smashed into the bottom corner of the goal to make the score 2v1 at half time.

In the second half, St Bernards had the hill with them and were attacking all the time but the Chilcote players defended excellently again and Katie pulled off some good saves in goal. Chilcote did have some attacks of their own but unfortunately they did not come to anything. Just before the end of the game St Bernards scored again to make the score 3v1.

Despite the defeat the girls deserve a massive amount of credit for their performance and defensive solidarity. They were all excellent and represented the school superbly. Well done to all!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would like to thank Brook Meadow Court for inviting us.
We would also like to thank Mr and Mrs Davis, Mrs Tuller, Ms Walji and Mrs Rafter for accompanying us.

Girls' football - Chilcote vs Severne Road

On Monday 16th October the Chilcote girls' football team played their third league fixture of the year against Severne Road Primary School. The match took place at Yardley Wood playing fields.

The match started as an even affair with both teams trying to impose themselves on the match. Slowly but surely Chilcote began to dominate the game, although Severne looked dangerous on the break. Chilcote had two good chances to score in the first half, both fell to Tamsin. She scored with one of them but it was disallowed due to a handball in the build up and then she hit the ball just over the bar from a long range shot. The half ended 0v0.

In the second half Chilcote quickly regained their control and put Severne under a lot of pressure. Eventually after a few more missed chances Anna curled a shot into the top corner after she intercepted a pass to make it 1v0. Then, shortly afterwards Tamsin hit a corner into the box and it went in off a defenders knee which made the score 2v0.

This means the girls have now won 2 and lost 1 of their league games.

Well done to all of the girls another fantastic performance!!!

Girls' football - Chilcote vs The Oaks

On Friday 13th October the Chilcote girls’ football team played against The Oaks School in their second league fixture.

The game started off quite scrappy with The Oaks having more of the ball in the Chilcote half of the pitch. Typically though it was Chilcote who had the first chamce of the game with Anna putting the ball wide from a cut back. The Oaks continued to huff and puff but didn’t work Katie in the Chilcote goal. Anna then had another great chance but the defender made a great block to deny her.  Just before the end of the half The Oals had their best shot of the match but Latie pulled off a great save to keep the score level at the break.

In the second half The Oaks continued to have more possession and attacks. Chilcote defended well throughout the half and ventured forward occasionally on the counter attack. Unfortunately, they didn't really test the opposition goalie. Then three minutes from the end disaster struck as The Oaks played a nice passing move and found their striker who duly found the bottom corner. They had another chance just before the end but Katie produced a great double save. The game ended 1v0. 

A great effort from all of the girls and a good performance, well done to all!!!

Mixed Netball: Chilcote Vs Cedars Academy

On Thursday 12th October Chilcote's mixed netball team played their second league fixture at home against Cedars Academy.

In the first quarter, both teams were just feeling their way into the game and Cedars had the upper hand. They were in around Chilcote's semi-circle for a long period of time. However, they did not manage to score so it ended 0v0.

The second quarter was a complete role reversal and Chilcote dominated the match having at least six great chances to score. Unfortunately, they only managed to take one of these chance, but this did mean they ended the quarter 1v0 up.

In the third quarter the game carried on in the same vain with Chilcote dominating the game and having a further five chances to score, but again their finishing let them down and they didn't take any of the chances that came their way. Then, as if to rub salt into the wounds Cedars scored with their only real chance of the quarter and with the last throw of the quarter to make the game 1v1.

In the final quarter, Chilcote started well but again missed their various opportunities to score. Halfway through the half Cedars managed to score another goal to take the lead in the match. From that moment Chilcote struggled to get back into their rhythm and Cedars were on top.

 Despite having lots of chances to score Chilcote's inability to convert them meant they lost the game 2v1. All of the players tried their best and represented the school well!

Year 5 and 6 boys football match vs Highters Heath

On Friday 5th October the Chilcote boys’ football team played their first league fixture against Highters Heath School. 

The match started really well for Chilcote with Madison scoring in the second minute from long range. This set the pattern of the game, Chilcote dominated and soon had a second goal through Dylan. Chilcote were starting to enjoy themselves and soon Ben got in on the act and scored his first of the night. Josh then rounded off a great team move with a calm composed finish. Just before half time Highters scored from a long kick forwards which the Chilcote defence didnt deal with and their forward finished his chance well. 

In the second half Chilcote carried on their attacking ways Harrison scored two and Ben also grabbed another 2 giving him his hat-trick for the evening. Then, Chilcote switched off in the last few minutes and some slack marking from a corner gave Highters a consolation goal. They then added another after a pinball moment in the box. The game finished 8v3 to Chilcote.

Well done to all of the boys on a great performance and result!!! 

Year 5 and 6 mixed netball match vs Harborne

On Thursday 5th October Chilcote’s mixed netball team played against Harborne school in their first high 5 netball league match. 

In the first quarter it quickly became apparent how good Harborne were! They were well drilled and knew their stuff they quickly went into a 6v0 lead.

In the second quarter it was more of the same although Chilcote improved defensively and only conceded 4. The children were using the match as a learning experience, as the Hadborne team were lethal every time they had the ball and punished every mistake.

In the third quarter, Chilcote enjoyed their best spell in the match they rallied and had some attacks of their own. Shayan even managed to bag a goal. The score in this quarter was 2v1 to Harborne.

In the fourth quarter, Harborne regained their superiority and they finished with a flurry of goals. There was just nothing the Chilcote players could do despite their best efforts. Chilcote did manage to grab another consolation goal. The final quarter finished 9v1 to Harborne.

All the children gave their all and tried their best. Harborne were just too good on the day. Everyone should be proud of themselves!!!

Year 6 Girls Match vs St Ambrose

On Monday 2nd October the Chilcote girls’ football team played their first league fixture against St Ambrose Barlow.

The game was a spirited affair with both teams trying their best to put passing moves together and create chances. Despite this the score at half time was 0v0.

In the second half, both teams huffed and puffed but could not break each other down. Chilcote arguably had the slightly better chances but they were of a premium. That was until the last minute of the match and Tanisha ran down the wing shot the ball towards goal and it squirmed through the goalies legs to give Chilcote a 1v0 lead and also a 1v0 win.

All the girls represented the school really well and should be proud of themselves!!!
