On Wednesday 21st June 2017, Cooper Perry took part in Rowley Park's athletics tournament. We all did amazingly well. We all had one race to do independently (a field event or a track event). In the track events we came first twice and third in another race. In the relay the girl's team got second place and the boys came fourth. We are very proud of what we have achieve. Even though we didn't win everything, we enjoyed it and will keep doing what we love. Sport!
Kwik Cricket Competition (Girls)
A group of girls went to a kwik cricket competition on Tuesday 13th June. We played 4 matched and won 1, however the other games were extremely close. The match we won was against Christ Church 225-230. We came third out of our group of 5, so unfortunately we didn't get into the semi-finals. We all had lots of fun although we didn't get through to the semi final.
Cricket Competition (Boys)
On Monday 12th June, a team of year 5 and 6 boys travelled to Milford Cricket Club for a competition. Everyone was so excited to go and they all got warmed up for the games ahead. The team did so well in their games and won against St Peters. Everyone was so determined to hit a six or at least a four. Overall the boys did extremely well and should be proud of their performance. Well done!
On Friday 12th May, a team of 7 year 4 boys took part in a football competition at Leasowes Primary School. The competition included 16 other schools. There were 4 teams in Cooper Perry's group. Alfie, Lucas, Jayden, Liam, George and Taylor took part in this competition. They came second in their group, which is an amazing result! Unfortunately, they didn't get through to the quarter finals because they had to come first in their group. Alfie scored the first goal in the first game, Jayden then scored after Alfie. They won that game 2-0. In the second game, Alfie scored 2 goals in a row and then unfortunately the opposition scored. Lucas was in goal and sadly he couldn't save that one because it was out of his reach! Next Taylor scored. After that Jayden scored. In that game they won 4-1. Disappointingly, in the 3rd game, the boys lost 2-0. Overall, the boys did amazingly well and came 2nd in their group.
On the 26th April, Cooper Perry Primary School entered a Gotta Dance show. We had two dances, which we practised every week on Wednesdays after school for 5 months! The dance team included years 4, 5 and 6, who all worked very hard each week to perfect the dances. When the competition finally arrived, we were pumped and ready to go.
We had a rehearsal to check everything was in order and it was; we were so excited! We then returned later to have a fire drill, get into costumes and apply our cat whiskers (eye liner). Then we just had to wait backstage until it was our turn.
The dances went perfectly; nothing could have gone better!
Through the performance, we were filmed so we got a DVD back and we watched it back again. It was embarrassing however it was pretty good so on the Friday in celebration assembly, we decided to show it to the whole school.
We would definitely love to go again.

They won quite a few games - it was a great achievement by all. Everyone did amazingly well and performed to the best of their ability. Well done!!
On the 21st March, a number of Cooper Perry students competed in their final race in the cross country competition. The group of students (from Year 5 and 6) ran extremely well!

Cooper Perry took part in a High 5 netball competition. We took two highly skilled teams to this event, an A team and a B team. Both teams played exceptionally well. Cooper Perry A team won 3 out of 4 games but sadly it wasn’t enough to take them through to the semi-finals, however the Cooper Perry B team was lucky enough to win 3 games and draw 1 taking them through to the semi-finals. Overall, the A team came 5th of out of 15 schools: a great achievement. Our B team came join 3rd after sadly not getting through to the final but they played their very best and did very well in the competition.
WELL DONE TO ALL!

Tag Rugby On Wednesday, 12th October 2016 a team of 18 Cooper Perry pupils took part in a Tag Rugby tournament at Stafford Manor High School. The children got an opportunity to enter the tournament and then were sorted into an A and B team. On the A team was Jack (Y5), Jack (Y6), Sebby, Jake, Billy, Finley, Ruby R, Ethan and Grace. Whilst on the B team was Ollie, Harry, James, Logan, George H, Nate, Ava, Joss and Tehya. All their hard work paid off with the A team managing to get through to the semifinals. However, the B team, who played just as hard, sadly didn’t make the “semis” but they were still there to support the A team. Unfortunately, the A team was beaten by Christ Church. All the children tried their hardest and persevered really well.
