Thursday 21st September 2023 - PEACE Tournament


Today was International Day of Peace and we were extremely honoured to be invited to Greensted Primary School to take part in a PEACE Football and Netball tournament, as part of the Basildon Twinning Association's 'Never Forget' project. Team Phoenix showed their support by waving flags and holding posters to promote peace around the world. A huge well done to everyone that was involved and congratulations to our 'Players of the Match', Imogen and Jack. What a lovely start to our year!

Sports Day 2023


What a triumph! Our Sports Day’s were incredibly successful this year. The children from Nursery to Year 6 had a brilliant time completing a circuit of different events and winning points for their countries. It was a silent, nail-biting wait as the scores were counted but the crowd roared as the winners were announced and presented with their trophies. We also introduced a new element to our KS2 Sports Day this year, a sprint and a long distance race. Two boys and two girls from each class were able to compete to win a 1st place trophy to take home. A huge well done to all our amazing children who participated, the nominated sprinters and long distance runners and congratulations

 to all our top three classes! You were all superb! 


1st Place: R3, 2C, 4V and 6O

2nd Place: R1, 1J, 4P and 5D

3rd Place: R2, 1C, 3AS and 6M


I would like to personally thank you all for your continuous support and the positive feedback we have received this week. A huge amount of preparation and organisation goes into events like these, so your kind words really do mean a lot. A special mention to those families who brought the Sports Day spirit with them - it made the day very special. Here’s to next year! Go team Phoenix!

Our second and final day of the Football Fundraiser was a blast today! Year 2 to Year 6 had their turn and we witnessed some incredibly fast strikes in the back of the net. Our highest of the day was a whooping 81kph! Mr Irons took the title of the fastest striker out of the teachers.

We kickstarted our Football Fundraiser today with EYFS and Year 1. The children were incredibly excited and had some powerful shots at goal. The highest score of the day was 49kph! Even Miss Chapman gave it a go.

MAT Football Tournament – Year 6 – Lee Chapel Primary School – Tuesday 28th March 2023


To end the Spring Term in good spirits, we were invited to participate in a MAT football tournament at Lee Chapel Primary School. We entered two boys teams and one girls team; they played tremendously (even in the grizzly weather)! Our girls team, who were incredible, played six games and came 4th in the group stages, which meant we progressed to the semi-finals! It was a nail-biting game as the match ended in a draw and we just missed out on a place in the final. The girls team came 3rd overall in the tournament and we couldn’t be prouder of their hard work, resilience and teamwork.


Our boys team, Phoenix B, were brilliant and worked incredibly hard in all of their matches. They scored some great goals and saved some difficult shots at goal against tough opposition. They just missed out on a spot in the semi-finals but they played amazingly well!


Our boys team, Phoenix A, were phenomenal. They played four games and came 2nd in the group stages, which meant we had another Phoenix team progressing to the semi-finals! We had a tough match ahead and as a result, we had to compete in a penalty shootout against Lee Chapel to decide a winner. We could barely watch! As Lee Chapel took their last shot, Phoenix made an incredible save which meant we were triumphant and secured a well-deserved place in the final! The boys team played fantastically in the final and were runners up overall in the tournament.


A huge well done to our ‘Players of the Match’, MC and CC. Go team Phoenix!

KS2 Football Tournament – Friday 18th November 2022


We were extremely lucky to be invited to attend a KS2 football tournament, hosted by Millhouse Primary School, on Friday. Our two teams were incredibly proud to be representing Phoenix, wearing our school colours, and played amazingly well. The highlight of the tournament was our 2-0 win against Rydene! A special congratulations to our ‘Players of the Match’, OP and IC – a huge well done! Go team Phoenix!
