Inter-house results

On our first week back, from the Easter holidays, Lister held its third inter-house competition. Once again, all years represented their houses in two sports: cricket and volleyball.

The boys took advantage of the glorious weather and showed off their batting and bowling skills, which rivalled Kohli and Mitchell Starc. It was a close call with Da Vinci taking an early lead at the start of the week, however an excellent performance by King year 8 students meant that overall, Da Vinci and King were joint first for the boys cricket competition.

The girls were introduced to a new sport, volleyball. However, this did not effect the talent that was witnessed over the course of the week. Some excellent digging, diving and setting from Miss Maxwell’s year 9 girls put Shelley in an early lead at the start of the week. Galileo showed excellent teamwork throughout the week however It wasn’t enough to stop a Hawking win for the girls.

Overall the winners of the third inter-house 2017/18 were Hawking and Da Vinci, well done to everybody that was involved and to Hawking and Da Vinci who move a step closer to winning the house cup.

Over the past few weeks our Dance students from various year groups have participated in some Dance and Music Master classes with teachers and Degree students from the University of London. They had a tour of the facilities and then spent the rest of the day dancing, making music and having a fun experience.
The project will be on again later on in the year, so see Ms Coke if you are interested.

Accelerated Reader award trip to the National Gallery

Our spring term accelerated reader award trip was to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. We were treated to a guided tour by the gallery focusing on the theme ‘Myths and Legends’. Our guide brought the paintings alive through explaining the stories upon which they were based and the symbolism used by the artists. It was a fascinating experience for this group of avid readers and they were full of questions!

Don’t forget to keep reading and taking those quizzes to be in with a chance of attending our summer trip!

What a result!

U’16 girls football team’s fantastic attendance at football training has paid off. They visited West Ham Foundation for a tournament. Warm up led by PE Champion Hanaa. After a wobbly start by Rosa injuring herself in the warm up, it left the team a player short. First game was against St Angelas where persistent chasing by Raissa and Jameelah held the score at 0-0. Second game saw Miriam and Sabia’s defensive partnership rule from the back to allow us to beat Lammas 1-0. In the third game Louise gained her hat-trick against Langdon with some smashing ‘top bins,’ 3-0. Lastly the toughest game of all, Melina was asked to annoy Frances Barnsley’s top player as much as she does her teachers to which she succeeded and prevented her from scoring for a 0-0 draw! For the first time we found ourselves in a FINAL against the dreaded Frances Barnsley… A time for year 8 Aleiyah to shine, volunteering in goal, she made some very important saves and kept the girls in it until 1 minute from time. The final score, 1-0 to Frances Barnsely but a truly OUTSTANDING performance by the team with smiles and medals gained by all…

GCSE Dance Theory Conference

Year 11 GCSE Dance candidates had a fantastic Component 2 (Theory) Conference lead by Heather Worrall from Artspool. They were quizzed on the 6 professional works in the anthology and given tips on answering the long mark questions on costume, aural setting and physical setting. They even made minature sets on the works!

It was very beneficial. Carlos who had been sick all week, said ‘it was good. I’m glad I came in for it’ Shafinur asked and answered some thought-provoking questions. Olga was surprised at how much information she actually knew, and Prisca made some copious notes!

Heather said to Ms Coke and Ms Lungu: ‘These are such great students, it was a delight to work with them! So much thinking and interaction from them all. Brilliant . You should be very proud of them’

Strong start to the tennis season

 

Our Lister U13 and U15 tennis teams had their first fixture of the year last week and their commitment to training over the winter months has definitely paid off. Our U15’s came first out of 3 schools winning 11 out of 14 matches. The U13’s did even better winning 11 out of 11 matches. Darbaz was particularly impressive. Having played over 140 hours of tennis since September he won all 3 of his matches – hard work definitely pays off!
