Our Y5/Y6 Hockey team were part of an exciting tournament last Tuesday at South Hunsley School, competing against Swanland, Elloughton and North Ferriby. The team was mixed boys and girls, they worked hard, demonstrating teamwork and determination from start to finish. The children's attitude was fantastic, despite the cold temperatures and the challenging matches. As I watched from the sidelines I witnessed brilliant defensive work, skilled passing and Jacob (Y6) produced a powerful goal. Congratulations to Kristian (Y6), Luke (Y6), Eloise (Y6), Grace (Y6), Jacob (Y6), Connie (Y6), Lewis (Y5), Poppy (Y5), Josephine (Y5) and Rachel (Y5).

 Sports Hall Athletics Competition - Tuesday 1st November

On Tuesday 1st November, a Year 5/6 Sports Hall Athletics competition took place at South Hunsley School. This was an inter-competition event for the South Hunsley Cluster of primary schools. Ten boys and ten girls took part in this exciting event, representing Brough School in two teams.

The competition was organised in two parts, field events and track events. Pupils could compete in up to two track and two field events each. The track events included relay races and obstacle races. The field events included chest pass, foam javelin throwing and a variety of jumping competitions.

All Brough pupils tried very hard in both their individual and team events. Individual scores in the competition contributed to a team total. Brough School came third in the competition overall, with a score very closely behind second place.

Well done to all our pupils who represented their school and thank you to parents for your ongoing support with transport and cheering!

On Tuesday 3rd May ten Year 4 pupils represented Brough Primary School at the East Riding SSP (West) Y4 Bench ball Final. The excited children had to leave early from their Y4 trip to KC Stadium and travel by minibus with Mrs Machon to Goole Academy.

Year 5/6 Boys Kwik Cricket Competition – Tuesday 17th May 2016

On Tuesday 17th May eight boys from Years 5 and 6 represented Brough Primary School at the Kwik Cricket Competition at South Hunsley School. Boys from Elloughton, Welton, North Ferriby and Swanland schools also took part in the competition, in the superb late afternoon, early evening sunshine.

All boys played in pairs to bat and everyone had to bowl one over of six balls in each game. In Kwik Cricket each team starts batting with a score of 200 runs, then runs are deducted if a batter is bowled, caught, run out or stumped.  Additional runs can be scored when batting.  The six teams were divided into two groups of three teams. We played against Elloughton B team and Welton in our group. Our boys displayed some good team work and there were some impressive catches and hits. We scored 221 for 5 against Elloughton B who scored 231 for 5 and we scored 214 for 8 against Welton who scored 219 for 4. Welton boys went on to win the final against Elloughton A team.

Well done to our pupils who played well in two closely fought games. Also thank you to parents for their ongoing support with transport, cheering and washing kit!

Keeping you up-to-date with the Netball League results. The girls have continued to play fantastically well and they have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the netball squad at Brough Primary School.

Once again, thank you to Lisa and parents for your support throughout the league.

As an observer, I was so proud to see some excellent play and some superb 'catching out'. The girls were playing against two teams from Elloughton, as well as North Ferriby, South Cave and Welton. They worked hard to play to the best of their ability, but more importantly the girls appeared to really enjoy this competition.

It was lovely to see many parents coming to watch and support their children. Thank you.

Elloughton v Brough Football Friendly

In a derby-like atmosphere, befitting that of a clash between Hull City and Scunthorpe United, Elloughton Primary became our first ‘friendly’ opponents of the season earlier this week.

Both teams must take huge credit from the game as, in extremely challenging weather conditions, all players continued to play football the way it should be. Unfortunately for our boys, despite having the majority of possession and chances, luck was not quite on their side and they slipped to an agonising 3-2 defeat, with both Brough goals coming from emphatic finishes by Ben.

As was the case in the 7-a-side tournament last week, the team showed impressive teamwork, attitude and perseverance, despite not getting the result they wanted or deserved. Praise must go to all of the boys, though, for sticking to how we wanted to play the game and for showing off the passing ability of our team. Well done!

Extra mentions must also go to Max, who was like a rock in our defence and communicated very effectively with his fellow defenders to keep things tight at the back, and also to Will, for some extremely impressive touches in midfield, as well as a good work rate and attitude throughout.

Well done to all of the boys involved and many thanks to all parents for the fantastic support!

Swimming Gala

On Tuesday 24th February six KS2 girls and six KS2 boys represented Brough Primary School in a swimming gala held at South Hunsley School pool. Six primary schools entered the competition. The children competed in a variety of individual one or two length races and a mixture of relay races. All the children tried hard to swim their fastest and enthusiastically cheered their team mates. The atmosphere was very exciting during the races and when we heard the winners of each race announced during the competition. Well done to all the children who represented Brough School! Max came 1st in the front crawl race and Harry came second. Millie came second in the  backstroke race. Four boys won the one length relay and four girls came second in the one length relay. Overall our pupils gained a very well deserved 2nd place in the swimming gala! Thank you to parents who transported their children and for your support and encouragement on the poolside.

Boys 7-a-side football tournament

In the annual South Hunsley Cluster Boys Football Tournament, earlier last week, both of our teams from Brough put up spirited performances in their first set of games together as a team.

Despite impressive signs of development throughout the group stage matches, our ‘B’ team just missed out on progressing to the semi-finals of the tournament. The ‘A’ team, on the other hand, did manage to reach the semi-finals, only to fall agonisingly short of making the final with a marginal defeat against eventual winners North Ferriby.

Although both teams returned to school without any silverware on this occasion, the level of skill and attitude shown throughout each and every game has filled me with confidence for future fixtures to come.

Well done, boys!

Y4 Dance Competition

On Tuesday 10th March some of the year fours made their way to South Hunsley to compete in a dance competition. The theme of the dance had to be rugby in the world cup; because of this theme we did a rugby match between England and New Zealand.

We practised every single lunchtime when Mrs Prescott wasn't busy and put all the effort into it that we could.  We wanted to win this round so much that we even practised after school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for two weeks to get it picture perfect! We also gave up our Friday P.E. lessons to make it the best that we could possibly do.

We were the first school to perform our dance and we thought we gave it our best shot! When the judges revealed who came 1st ,2nd and 3rd  this is how it went.  South Cave were 3rd , North Cave were 2nd and we were 1st !!! We will be going to the grand final on the 21st of April at Cottingham High School.


Girls 7-a-side football tournament

Earlier this week, the girl’s football team put up an extremely courageous performance at the annual South Hunsley Cluster 7-a-side tournament.

Despite marginally missing out on a place in the semi-finals of the competition, the girls showed true grit and determination throughout each of their four games and certainly did their school proud. In fact, in the final game of their tournament, the girls were rewarded for their persistence and earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory against North Ferriby, with a fantastic strike from Charley B.

The faultless attitude shown by the girls throughout the tournament was a hugely encouraging sign for future fixtures, and the significant improvement in performance between each game was clear for all to see on the touchline.

Well done girls, you did Brough School proud!

Sports Hall Athletics

Yr 5/6 children represented our school in the very energetic and exiting Sports Hall Athletics. The children competed against other schools in boys and girls track and field events. Track events included obstacle relay, over and under relay, 1 lap and 6 lap relays. Field events included javelin and chest push throws and three jumping events. Despite some difficulties filling the places of 9 boys and 9 girls, the children showed determination and commitment and finished third, a very good result. Well done to all the competitors, you were a pleasure to be with.

Mrs McPherson


Nine children represented Brough Primary School from Yr 5/6 on 22nd April at South Hunsley School for an Orienteering Competition. The weather was glorious and the children had a fantastic time using electronic equipment to map their route.

Yr 4 Benchball Competition

The children in year 4 enjoyed participating in the South Hunsley Benchball competition on Tuesday 28th April. It was a busy and highly competitive event. The 20 children were in two teams in different leagues with both teams winning some of their matches but not enough to qualify for the semi finals. Well done to a very enthusiastic group of children!!

Yr 5/6 Rounders Competition - Tuesday 2nd June

A team of 6 boys and 7 girls battled against the high winds as well as other teams from the South Hunsley Partnership on the 3G pitch. Brough School were in the 'A' league with 3 other schools who all played each other. After the games were played and the points were totaled, there was a clear winner for league 'A.' The other teams including Brough all came 2nd as we had all won, drawn and lost a game to each other. The Young Leaders had to then see how many players had been 'out' during their batting sessions for each game to decide final places. In the end, Brough came third in their league. Well done for some good sportsmanship and some amazing batting skills, Owen in particular managed to get a rounder with almost every run. Brilliant!
