Children in Years 3 and 4 went to Ellowes Hall to take part in a Scoot Fit festival. Scoot Fit is a sporting activity using push IMG_0493scooters to improve health and fitness. Scooting uses the same large muscle groups as running but is much more fun. Scoot Fit reduces stress on the bones and joints making movement easier, more comfortable and more sustainable than running. Scoot Fit can be regarded as a core activity helping develop and improve agility, balance, co-ordination, muscle strength and endurance greatly benefiting any other sporting activity.

We are very proud of our Girls’ football team. Firstly we entered a tournament for all Dudley school held at Thorns Academy. The girls played wonderfully well. After qualifying from the group stages with some fantastic performances and wonderful goals we won the final against Fairhaven by a single goal in a tense thriller of a match.


The girls then progressed to then next stage of the competition which involved them competing against schools from across the West Midlands. The team played superbly again and reached the semi-finals where a two-nil defeat ended our adventure.


Well done to all the girls who participated and thank you to parents for your support and Miss Whitelaw for coaching the girls in the second stage of the competition.

In years 1 and 2, children are given the opportunity to represent their school competitively as part of our Multi Skills team.


A range of activities are incorporated into P.E. lessons, testing children’s balance, co-ordination, speed, agility and precision. The children that perform best are then chosen to take part in the Ellowes Hall Multi Skills competition where they compete against other primary schools from the Dudley Borough.


The competition itself contains events that test the afore-mentioned attributes. Children are scored across these events and then 3rd, 2nd and 1st place schools are announced by the event organisers.


In recent times, Glynne Primary School have been very successful in this competition, finishing in 1st place for five of the past six years.


As reward for this, the winner of the competition is invited to participate in the wider spread Black Country School Games, containing the best schools from Dudley, Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Walsall Boroughs.


In 2016, Glynne Primary School won the Black Country School Games for the first time, adding to the school’s proud heritage of producing excellent sporting teams.


In January 2017, our newest Multi Skills team won the Ellowes Hall competition again, ensuring that Glynne Primary School will be able to defend their 2016 title at this year’s Black Country Games.


The following children have participated in Multi Skills competitions for Glynne. Here is what they had to say about their experience…


“I liked taking part in the competition because I’m good at hand-eye co-ordination. We won the Ellowes Hall competition and came joint 4th in the Black Country Games.”

Ben Hancox, Year 6


“I liked it when we ran around the cones, I was good at that! We won the Black Country School Games! I felt very proud.”

Dulcie Brookes-Round, Year 3


“I remember falling over and hurting my elbow. I still got up and we carried on and won! I couldn’t wait for the Black Country Games and kept asking Mr Goodman when it was. I was so happy when we won!”


Martha Sidaway, Year 3



Glynne Football team 2016


The Glynne football team gives children the opportunity to represent their school competitively, playing in both a local league and in a Dudley wide cup competition against other primary schools.

The team is usually open to boys and girls in Year Six but children who have a specific talent may begin playing in Year Five.

The team has been fairly successful over the past few years, we are currently reigning league champions and we have reached the final of the cup competition in two of the last three years.

As a fantastic role model and leader, Oakley Sproson is the captain of the team this year, as part of his duties we have asked him to write match reports following our games, you can follow the team’s progress through his posts.

“On Thursday 10th November, we played a game against Ashwood Primary.

After a few weeks of practice sessions we started the game as instructed by Mr Bennett playing a tight game. It wasn`t long before our hard work paid off with a first goal.

Even though Ashwood were a lively opposition it soon became obvious that they were no match for our pass and move game with teamwork being our main priority. More goals followed as we settled down and enjoyed playing our first game for the Glynne.

The final score was 13-2 so a good start to the Glynne football season.

As captain,I would like to thank Mr Bennett (on behalf of the players involved) for all of his hard work with the coaching he has given us so far.”


“On Tuesday 22nd November, it was our first cup match against Northfield Road, the tension was unbearable.

We weren’t sure what the opposition was capable of so we approached the game cautiously. After being instructed by Mr Bennett to play a tight game with teamwork and impeccable communication, we ended up leading three nil but that was only half time.

The second half turned out to be a calm, more quiet game until Northfield came at us with all of their energy and tried to overrun us. This was no match for our hard work, we put every last piece of effort into our performance and came out on top by winning five nil.

Well done Glynne!”


“On Thursday 24th November, we competed against our local rivals, Fairhaven. Both teams were equally matched. As the first whistle blew but we were on top with our team work, great communication skills leading to two goals.

Although it was a great start against our rivals, we unfortunately conceded a goal against us.

When we moved on to the second half, their first goal felt like a wakeup call to get our act together.

We used our first two goals to build confidence and with hard work and determination, we went on to score nine more goals and win the match.

A great way to finish this year’s matches. Hopefully we can go on to win all of next year`s matches!”
