Sport is a very important part of the curriculum at St Peter and St Paul. Children are encouraged to respond to the challenges to mind and body, to compete and to co-operate with others.

Y6 Girls Indoor Football Tournament
On the 24th of November a team of girls from Burgh school participated in an indoor football tournament.
They played against lots of teams that were very good and supportive. There were seven different teams in total. They played seven matches overall and did very well. One of the matches which was the last one, was against Woodall which they drew in. Woodall were the winners overall and they did very well and so did all of the teams.
Burgh school came 2nd and they did very according to our coach and lots more people who were supporting our team.
Everyone really enjoyed the whole tournament and did very well and would really like to do it again!
Y6 boy’s football tournament
Recently Burgh schools football squad went out to play in a football tournament at Skegness Academy.
There were six team in total. The First team Burgh played was Seathorne School. It was a hard match that resulted in a 0-0 draw. Next we played Ingoldmells that was a tough match as well that resulted to a 1-0 win to Ingoldmells. After a quick break we played Skegness Junior Academy that were one of the best team at the tournament in my opinion that beat us 3-0. Richmond was are next opponents. That we finally won against 1-0. And our last match was against Willhouby and they won 1-0.
I think all of the team enjoy this experience. And a big thank you to Mr Hurdman and Mr Smith for supporting us along the way. Well done to the hole of Burgh that came 5th. And well done to the winning team Skegness Juniors Academy.

Recently Burgh school sent a team to a girl’s football tournament.
A team of Y6 girls from Burgh school were sent to the Pavillion in Skegness to compete in a girl’s football tournament on the new 3G pitch.
They did very well (considering they didn’t really have much time to practise!) Altogether, there were six teams competing in two leagues. Burgh school played 2 games in league 1, the scores were 1-1 against Friskney and 3-0 to Burgh against Seathorne putting them at the top of their league and to play the Richmond school (the winners of league 2) in the final. The match was very closely fought but Richmond just managed to get that all important goal to win the tournament overall.
The team of the day (the decision made by the Skegness Academy umpires) was Skegness Junior Academy.
Burgh team were very supportive and great sports on the day. Their coach said, “They dominated the second half of the match against Richmond but sadly didn’t get a goal.” There captain quoted, “In our final match we played very well but unfortunately none of us scored a goal."
There will be another tournament in November to look forward to.
