On Tuesday 23rd February the Y6 students travelled to Longcroft School in Beverley to take part in the final of the Sports Hall Athletics. Burstwick formed a joint team with Paull School and were one of only 5 teams to make it to the final. Despite some terrific performances Burstwick/Paull came in fifth, losing out to generally much larger schools.
Despite not winning, a great time was had by all.
Chocolate Bear (so called because he smells of chocolate) is awarded each week to a pupil that has worked extra hard.

For Burstwick’s first indoor hockey match of the year, 9 students travelled to Paull School to play as 3 teams of 3. This meant that the match consisted of nine 4 minute games. Despite some excellent individual performances by students from Burstwick, Paull won the match 5-3 with one game drawn. There will be a re-match at Burstwick in the new year.
As you can tell from the photographs, a fun time was had by all.
Burstwick’s students were Ella H, Jessica S, Jessica B, Lucy N, Lilian H, Alida W, Harry G, Logan D, Jacob B.
Burstwick took on Paull School at 4 a side football on Wednesday 21st October. Each school fielded 3 teams, with each team playing the 3 sides from the opposing school in matches lasting 4 minutes. The short duration of each match meant that games were exciting and full of energy.
In the first game Paull scored the opening goal and led for nearly the whole match until Burstwick scored an equaliser just before full-time. That was to be Paull’s only goal as Burstwick dominated. The final result was Burstwick won 5 of the 9 games, with the other 4 being draws.
There were some great individual performances by players from both schools in addition to excellent teamwork in every game.
Burstwick’s players were Harvey S, Ella H, Jessica Y, Noah J, Grace W, James H, Harvey B, Harry G, Thomas W, Leoni M, Charlotte M, Jacob B, Alex M.
Thursday 8th October saw the second cross country match of the school year. This time the location was Bilton Primary School. Burstwick and Paull sent a joint team along to compete in races of 1,000m for Y3/4 and 1,500m for Y5/6.
Burstwick’s new sports kit proved to be a big hit and really made the Burstwick team stand out.
There were some great performances on the night, especially from Harry G. who, having missed his own Y3/4 race, competed in the longer Y5/6 event.
Results as follows:
Y3/4 girls: Megan M. 8th, Lehanna S. 15th
Y3/4 boys: Alex M. 9th
