Girl's Football Tournament - 18th October 2017
On Wednesday, 18th October the Burton girl’s football team played in a tournament at Mudeford Primary School. The first match we played was against Mudeford Juniors. It was an outstanding game but sadly we lost 1-0.
On our second game we won 3-0 and Freya scored a hat-trick luckily we kept a clean sheet and Kelsey played brilliantly in goal.
In the third game we played Highcliffe St Marks. Sadly we lost 2-0 but it was a tough game even though we tried our best.
The last game we played was against Christchurch Junior and we played back a good goal from Scarlett and an epic assist from Freya (bottom corner). We would like to thank Mrs Slater for the support and the people who took part were: Ella, Rebecca, Bethany, Scarlett, Freya, Ava, Kelsey, Kacey, Ella and Jessica. We did well and came 4th overall.
Well done Burton.

On Wednesday 8th November 2017, Burton School took part in an indoor athletics tournament against Somerford and St Josephs.
There was lots of different activities, the main ones were relay races, chest pass, soft javeline, vertical jump, long jump and triple jump.
In the girls 1 x 1 relay we came second along with the boys. In the 2 x 2 the girls came 1st and the boys came 2nd.
In the 4 x 1 relay girls came first and the boys lost unfortunately. In the 6 x 6 relay the girls lost and the boys came 2nd. These were the track events.
In the triple jump you had to do a hop, skip and then jump as far as you can. Both boys and girls did well in the standing long jump. We stand behind a line and jump as far as possible. In the vertical jump we stand and then jump as high as we can.
Altogether we came 2nd. Everyone that took part did well. Thank you Miss Slater for organising this tournament and the transport. Well done Burton!
