We had lots of fun and want to go there next year too!
By Amalie and Kaitlyn, Class 3
First we warmed up by taking shots at Freddie, who was in goal. This was great fun! Then we watched Radwinter play before playing against them. After that we played Stebbing, and then Walden. Finally, we played Rickling. Following a break we moved into the semi-final. We had to play Radwinter again but we lost 5-0. Then we lost 3-0 against Stebbing. All in all, we all had a great time and from the tournament we learnt to work as a team.

We then went on to play another four matches and were placed 8th overall. The children played brilliantly and should be very proud of their achievement. A big thank you to all the parents who came and stood in the mud to support us and special thanks to Mr Baleisolomone who stepped in as referee. Well done Debden!

Report from our year 6 school councillors; Harry Bird & Caitlin Anderson:
This year some swimmers from our school were chosen to go to the swimming gala at Lord Butler Leisure Centre. The competition was tough.
After being nervous all day, we finally got on the bus to go to the gala. When we got there, we went to the sports hall to get ready to go to the pool ... Tui, however, had ripped his hat and couldn’t get it on! That was the first problem of the day.
When we walked into the pool area, the atmosphere was bubbling with excitement. Our first swimmer, Aaliyah, got into position for the freestyle race... “ 3, 2, 1, GO!” shouted the lady! Suddenly, the whole room started screaming to support their team; Aaliyah did brilliantly - she had won us our first race!
Then everything got a bit chaotic; no one really knew where they were supposed to be or what race was next.
After a long afternoon, everyone had enjoyed themselves and got on the bus and went back to school.
On Wednesday the 18th November, we had two teams and one individual competing at the partnership cross country in Newport. The Year 3 girls and Year 4 girls as well as Caitlin in Year 6 all won their events at the Newport Family competition and have therefore been selected. We wish them well.
Sport’s Report 9th October 2015
Our Y6 boys and girls (plus two Y5 girls) represented Debden at the annual Uttlesford School Sport’s Partnership Football Tournament on Wednesday of this week, playing in the Small School’s League.
In the morning the boys played really well throughout their rounds, improving with every game. They encountered some stiff opposition, but battled through every match, gaining confidence as a team and working together with support, determination and encouragement. Well done boys!
In the afternoon the girls played in a round robin of four games, winning comprehensively in three out of four of their games (scoring 27 goals!!) and emerging as Champions of the Small Schools. That pitched them in a three way tie against the winners of the Medium and Large Schools to find the overall winners of Uttlesford. They fought bravely in their two remaining matches to finally end up as second in Uttlesford, a truly remarkable result! Well done girls.
Well done to both of our teams who represented Debden School with pride and conducted themselves on the field of play with team spirit and a true sense of fair play.
