Well done to all the ten Year 4 children who went to the trigolf tournament on Thursday 10th May.  Against 11 other schools, they putted and chipped at targets as a team.  They represented the school fantastically and came 9th overall.  Well done all the children involved!!

Girls Cricket Tournament

Year 5 girls attend girls’ cricket tournament

Well done to all the Year 5 girls who attended the girls’ cricket tournament at the Sir Rod Aldridge Cricket Centre at BACA. They played in 2 matches each, with both teams losing in close matches v Coombe Road.  Then in the BIG match between our Team 1 and Team 2, Team 1 won by 24 runs.  The girls played really well, bowled with excellent accuracy and gained some excellent cricketing experience!

Girls Football Match v Brunswick

Girls draw against Brunswick!

Well done to the Year 4, 5 and 6 girls who drew 0-0 away at Brunswick school on Monday 26th March.  In a very tight, closely fought match, neither team could break down their opponent’s solid defence.  The girls played really well, in particular working hard to tackle and stop Brunswick having space to score. 

Leah G made one fantastic save with her right hand, and Alexis and Aliyah were superb at leading the defence. 

Leen, Rebecca, Summer, Chloe and Louise worked hard to tackle and get the ball forwards.

Esme and Regan (playing a match for the first time) kept their positions well as wide midfielders and looked to dribble forwards.

Imarni worked hard up front, regularly dribbling the ball towards the opponent’s goal.

Well done to all the girls who played!

LET'S DANCE 2018

26 children from Year 6 performed at the Brighton Dome on Monday 19th March in the Let’s Dance festival.  This is the biggest schools festival of dance in the whole country!

The song that they performed to was Mint Royale’s ‘Singin in the Rain’.  In the months leading up to the performance the children worked incredibly hard to practise their dance moves, and the hard work paid off! Their performance was amazing, full of energy and attitude! Many parents and staff came to watch their performance at the Brighton Dome and were wowed by it!  Well done to all the fantastic children who took part- the school is incredibly proud of you all.

Hockey Tournament

Runners Up in Hockey Tournament

by Goal Difference!

What a performance by our school hockey team in the Brighton and Hove Quicksticks competition! In our first performance in the tournament, under the watchful eye of our lucky mascot Mr Church,  our team played so well, winning four out of five matches and scoring 16 goals! Unfortunately St Martins, the only team to beat us, came first in the league having also won four of their matches but also scoring more goals than we did.  However we are extremely proud of the performances of all the players in our team (and are hopeful for next year seeing as five of the squad are only in Year 5!). We defended excellently as a team and scored some great goals. Well done to all- what a brilliant result!

Basketball Tournament

Runners Up in CAW Basketball Tournament

In the first ever 4 team CAW basketball tournament, our team finished runners up in the final on Monday evening in an epic final!

Our school now hosts an annual 4 team tournament in our gym, and the invited schools are Queen’s Park, Coombe Road and Coldean primary schools.  In the tournament our team played really well, beating Queen’s Park 14-2 and Coombe Road 12-8. 

As Coldean won both their matches too, it came down to the last match between them and us.  In a cracking match we lost a tight contest 8-6.  It was a great performance by our team who just couldn’t convert their many chances.

Well done to our team for coming so close to winning - we look forward to the tournament again next year!

 

A huge thank you to our Sports Leaders Savannah, Jaiden and Ethen who helped score and host our tournament- they did our school incredibly proud!

Year 5/6 Football

Ecstasy and Agony in the Cups!

In the last two weeks our Year 5/6 boy’s football team has suffered both disappointment and joy from last minute goals!

In the Fitzgerald Cup our team travelled to Saltdean. With debutant Malik scoring twice and Lyrik once, we were ahead 3-0 after 15 minutes.  Saltdean pegged us back well though, equalising half way through the second half.  However our team showed real determination to keep playing, and in the last minute a cross from Maison was turned into their own net by their goalie, meaning we won 4-3! This means CAW are through to the quarter finals for the first time in many years!

 

One week later we travelled to Cottesmore St Mary’s school and played in an epic match in the Baker Cup.  With many chances for both teams, it somehow remained 0-0 at half time.  In a brilliant game Cottesmore scored early in the second half, but a header from Malik helped equalise.  Yet in the last two minutes, they scored a great goal from a corner, meaning they won 2-1.  It was a disappointing end to a thrilling match but it was a fantastic performance from the team, and we take this momentum into the quarters of the Fitzgerald Cup!

Indoor Athletics

Great Indoor Athletics Performance!

Congratulations to all the Year 5 and 6 children who participated in the indoor athletics at BACA on Wednesday 10th January! In the best performance for many years at this competition, our school finished 3rd out of 8 Brighton and Hove primary schools!

The boys and girls did our school proud - winning many of their running races, throwing and jumping events.  A particular well done to all the children who did the speed bounce (jumping over a small hurdle as many times as you can in 20 seconds), as their scores of over 36 each helped us to our 3rd place!

Well done to all involved. smiley

Football Update

Fantastic Finish to Boys Football League Season!

Well done to the Year 5 and 6 boys who finished their schools league campaign with back to back 4-1 victories! This should see City Academy finish 4th out of 7 schools as they ended the league season on a high. 

On Tuesday 5th December they travelled to Hertford Primary and started the game very well, with a great first half performance which ended with Michael toepoking into the roof of the net- to help us lead 1-0 at half time.  Despite an excellent 30 yard drilled goal from Hertford, we continued to dominate the game in the second half and thanks to two goals from Maison and one from Destiny we won the match 4-1.

On Wednesday 6th December we played Queens Park at Manor Gym under the floodlights, full of confidence after our victory the night before.  In a match we created many chances in, Queens Park unexpectedly scored to take the lead but we stayed calm to equalise and make it 1-1 before half time.  In the second half we continued to dominate and eventually took the lead through Maison’s curling strike.  Two more late goals from Rio and Maison sealed a second 4-1 victory in as many days.

Well done to all the boys involved!

Year 5 and 6 Cross Country 22nd November

A huge well done to all the fantastic participants from Year 5 and 6 that took part in the Brighton Schools Cross Country on Wednesday 22nd November.  30 children from our school joined 1266 Year 5 and 6 girls in a 2km race at Brighton Rugby Club!

The boys and girls in their CAW blue Tshirts did amazingly and showed great determination and resilience to run such a long way! They all finished their two kilometres with a sprint and gave it their best.  Their behaviour was amazing and they did our school so proud- well done to everyone who took part!

A particular well done goes to our superstar runner Harley Pettitt in Year 6, who finished 37th out of approximately 250 boys- a great achievement Harley, well done!

School Football Update- November 2017

It has been a very busy couple of week at City Academy with four different football matches taking place since the half term break!

Firstly, the Year 6 football league has begun and our team have played twice.  In their first match they lost a see-saw battle against Fairlight 5-3, before bouncing back with a 6-1 win over Saltdean ‘B’.

Our Year 5 team played at Coldean and lost a good match 6-2, with goals coming from Ali and Nura.

Our girls team, involving girls from Year 4, 5 and 6, also travelled to Coldean for a friendly match and their match was a very fair contest which finished 0-0

Well done to all players for representing our school so well!

Tag Rugby Festival

Tag Rugby Tournament 11th October 2017

On a drizzly Wednesday at Waterhall Sports Field, 20 of our Year 6 children took part in a tag rugby festival.  They were split into two teams of 10, our Whitehawk ‘Red’ team and Whitehawk ‘Blue’ team. 

The children first took part in some rugby activities, then played in three matches against other schools.  Both teams were victorious in one match each, and scored lots of tries.   Well done to all who took part- they did the school proud with their enthusiasm for the sport and teamwork in the matches!

Boys Football Tournament

Boys Football Tournament 29th September

On Friday 29th October, we ambled over to East Brighton Park with Mr Berry and Mr Chick to take part in a 7-a-side football tournament. Though ultimately we didn’t win, we performed with pride and progressed through to the champions section of the second stage after a fantastic runners-up placing in the first league. The first 2 games were particular highlights, as we won both with some excellent passing moves involving Harley, Rio and Maison and top-class finishing along with composed defending from Trai, Destiny and Brandon. In one of the final games we lost 1-0 (following some goalkeeping heroics from Harvey), hitting the post near to the end which would have given us a shot at qualification to the semi-finals. We also brought a key game back to 2-1 with a goal made by Lyrik and scored by Francis, only to concede 2 more when pushing for the equaliser. All in all, we could be proud of our positive attitudes and the effort that we put in for each other, and can now look forward to working hard in football club ready for the upcoming league season.

Girls Football Tournament

Girls football team 22nd sept 2017(1)

Congratulations to all who took part in the girls football tournament at East Brighton Park! For some it was the first time they had played in a football match and they did their school proud! The girls from Year 4, 5 and 6 won one of their three matches and lost two.  Their victory against Carden Primary was 2-1 to CAW and included goals from Summer and Aliyah.  In the other games we lost a close match 1-0 to Benfield, and were beaten by an excellent Balfour team 4-0. The girls played really well in all three matches, worked well as a team and are looking forward to playing in more matches this year.  Well done girls!
