Our children have made a fantastic start to the academic year so far with a mix of team and individual successes.
At the beginning of October Mr Francis took a mix of children from Year 5 and 6 to take part in the City Indoor Athletics Championships where we achieved 3rd place against other LEAD Academy Schools. While there were some individual successes on the day it was Sycamore’s ability to work as a team and pull together that lead to this fantastic achievement.
Sycamore will now be entered into the Nottingham City Games where they will be up against the best Nottingham City Schools has to offer.
A battling performance against some top teams saw our boys football team win one, draw one and lose two of its games against a variety of top city schools. Newly appointed team captain Kason rallied the team whilst showing all the Sycamore values of respect, teamwork, resilience and pride throughout the day.
As part of the tournament the boys managed to beat Burford Primary 10-0, 4-1 and 5-1 over 3 separate games although mixed with a few losses our boys managed to achieve a mid-table finish.
Newly appointed team captain Isha lead our girls to their first tournament of the year where the team had mixed results against well established that included Nottingham Academy and Nottingham High School.
The girls managed to draw three with sadly two losses, which considering this was their first tournament, Mr Francis was very proud of courage on show throughout the day.
