 Hockey Tournament – Round 1 – 7th October 2022

Our newly formed Hockey Team were selected from Year 4, 5 and 6 to represent the school at the Spalding Primary Schools Hockey Tournament. The Team, have been trained during their lunch breaks by Mrs. McMurray and supported through an after school club provision. The children were all keen and excited to be putting on the new Team Kit and fitting their mouth guards as they took to the pitch to play against Gosberton Risegate; Gosberton Academy and Surfleet Primary School.

The team were amazing in their sporting conduct, sharing great sporting conduct in defeat and using resilience to challenge themselves more in each match. We look forward to Spalding Hockey Tournament Round 2!


St. Norbert’s Football Team – Super League 27th September 2022

St. Bartholemews 1 – St. Norbert’s 0

St. Norbert’s Year 5 and 6 Football Team got off to a steady start in their football season playing their first match against St. Bartholemews  Primary School.

The match was very tense, with a number of near misses across the goal. St. Bartholemews Team dug-in deep and began to create space through their passing skills and were able to secure the win. The boys were disappointed but able to recognize that their defence in the first half held of the opposition whilst their lack of passing let them down in finishing off any set pieces.


St. Norbert’s Football Team – Super League 13th October 2022

St. Norbert’s 1 – Gosberton 0

Following our weekly lunch time Team Training sessions and After School practice, St. Norbert’s Year 5 and 6 Football Team got off to a good start in their match against Gosberton. The Team played an increased passing strategy and were able to place the ball more accurately with each of their players. The defence maintained a hard line across the goal passing the ball up the field to awaiting strikers. During the 2nd half the dead-lock was broken and St. Norbert’s scored their first goal in the league! Euphoria broke out as it had been a long time coming, however, the team composed themselves well to show respect to their opponents at the final whistle sharing three cheers for Gosberton! Well played boys.


St. Norbert’s Football Team – Super League 17th October

St. Norbert’s 4 – Wygate Academy 0

Our Final match of our Advent 1 term was against Wygate Academy. The boys had been training hard to improve their passing skills and share their ability to move the ball quickly up the pitch. Our ‘two-tap’ game strategy ensured that the boys were more aware of their team and passing the ball to set up greater opportunities for those in space. This strategy worked well as the ball and game moved at pace and kept the opposition on a back foot – within no time at all the score board was ringing out to the tune of goal after goal – a great way to end the term and a great way to play as a team – passing the ball has created our success. We thank the parents and helpers for their continued support at matches and organizing hospitality for the visiting team. Well done boys – we look forward to next term.
