Well done to the Football and Netball teams who won the Long Marton Sheild!

The Netballers however made quick work thumping Long Marton 5-0 in the final, having won their previous two games convincingly.
Well done to all who play so magnificently! The children were a real credit to the school.

Our team competed in several events including: butterfly, front crawl, back stroke and relays. All of the children involved performed with great enthusiasm and cheered on from the side lines when their team mates were competing. A big thank you is needed for Corey Tallentire who stepped up last minute when one of the team couldn't make it. Well done to all involved!

Congratulations to the football team who successfully defended their Kings Meaburn Cup win on Thursday night. The team played brilliantly, proudly playing for the badge which sits on their chests. They were in inspired form, passing the ball, playing one twos, getting around the back of the defence, putting crosses and scoring plenty of goals.
They won the first match against Crosby, 7-0. Which gave them confidence for the second group match a potentially difficult clash against the winners of the Long Marton Shield, Asby. However with a fine defensive display and wonderful flowing counter attack football Warcop cam out on top winning 3-0.
In the final the team produced a confident and dominate display beating Long Marton 4-0. Former star defender Samuel Laidlow played brilliantly for the Long Marton team. However Warcop's attack just over ran the Long Marton defence, including a bicycle kick goal scored by Cameron. Well done to Oscar who was picked as player of the tournament by the organisers.
Well done to the whole team who played, a desered victory! The team were; Dominic (C), Oscar (C), Liam, Cameron, Robin, Finley, Oliver and Jake.
Pupils from Year 2 attended the KS1 Multi-Sports Festival at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School, they had a great time facing lots of different sporting challenges.

The annual Long Marton Shield Competition ultimately ended in disappointment for both Netball and Football teams. However this was not for lack of effort.
Both teams put up valiant battles against tough opposition from other schools. The Netball team, made up of Year 5's and 6's lost their first game heavily to a strong Temple Sowerby team. But they came back mightily in their second game to win a close battle with Bolton.
The football team played 3 competitive matches, coming from behind to draw 1-1 with Brough. Beating Kirkby Thore was essential, however we got caught on the counter attack and lost 1-0. Which all meant our last match against Asby was a dead rubber, the lads played well and drew 0-0. Asby went on to win the tournament, well done to them.
All the children who took part gave their very best and represented the Warcop shirt with proud. Well done to all of you, we'll work even harder to win next year!
On Thursday the 19th May Warcop entered three teams, of mixed year 3 and 4 children, into the Mini tennis competition at Penrith tennis courts. We had a brilliant morning of tennis, all the children were enthusiastic and gave it their all!

Team 2: Theo, Oscar, Summer and Scarlett Bell
Team 3: Rory, Alfie, Emily and Jessica
Team 1 finished 4th and Team 2 and 3 came fifth out of their group. Well done to all the children involved!
The sun was shining brightly on the pitches at Fairfields today for the Tag Rugby tournament. We took two teams; 10 Years 5s entered the 5/6 tournament and 7 Year 4s entered the 3/4 festival. We were all very enthusiastic and eager to play! There were a lot of schools there and the competition was tough but Warcop went into each match feeling optimistic and showing great sportsmanship towards the other teams. Oliver, Jake and Levi put their rugby practise to good use, they made a fantastic contribution to the team and it was clear they were very passionate about the game.
Cameron, Liam A and Mira impressed with their agility and speed, Liam A tried out the spinning technique which worked a treat against the other team! Each member of the team tried their best and had fun, well done everyone!

Class 4 had a great time at Kwik Cricket on the 04/02/16, we joined 3 other local schools at Kirkby Steven. It was clear straight away that the other schools had had a good amount of practise and coaching but Warcop gave it their all and everyone enjoyed themselves! Emily and Vincent displayed an excellent natural ability for bowling and were both extremely enthusiastic team players. The fielders had a tough job on their hands, as the other teams had some powerful batters, Dominic and Evie made a great pair in the field and impressed with several stops and catches.
Well done to everyone who took part!

We had a great time there, each member of the team supported one another and displayed a great sense of sportsmanship! Each child took part in 2 track and 2 field events, these included: relay, long jump, chest pass and the javelin throw. Overall, we came 5th out of the 8 local schools which attended.
10 children from Year 1 and Year 2 had a super afternoon in Kirkby Stephen attempting some extremely difficult sporting challenges. They tested their speed, agility, accuracy and distance throwing. All competed really well and came home with a chest full of stickers! Their scores are below!

The 2015/16 season started in tough fashion for the Warcop football and netball teams. It turned out to be a long afternoon, as hopes of doing well in the tournament quickly faded. But the hard lessons learnt will stand the players in good stead for the end of the year tournaments.
The football team are going through what Brendan Rodgers would call a "transition period" loosing many first team players from last years year 6. However the year 4 and 5's who stepped up played some outstanding football and showed great character. With a little more work on the training pitch, some of the errors made will hopefully be smoothed out.
Both Netball teams played strongly, but just didn't have the fire power to overcome some of the other schools. Despite some great play from Cliona, Evie and Finley on one team and Johanna, Mira and Sarah-Jean on the other, the other schools had just the extra luck then needed.
Football: Dominic, Oscar, Cameron, Liam A, Levi, Oliver, Toby, Jake, Vincent and Robin.
Warcop Thunder: Cliona, Evie B, Finley, Laina, Thomas, Sarah F, Lily and Darcy.
Warcop Netball: Rhiannon, Mira, Sarah-Jean, Esther, Sarah D, Johanna, Amelia, William and Liam L.

Well done to the 3/4s who took part, here are some photos from the tournament in Penrith.
We had a great time at Sports Hall Athletics, which is a fun competition but also quite physically challenging, starting with a tough obstacle course, running races as well as traditional field events.
We all enjoyed ourselves even if we did finish last! We had some great 3rd place finishes in the running and we think Cameron finished first in the chest push.
Well done to everyone who took part!
On Wednesday we travelled all the way to Cockermouth Rugby Club for the County Final of Tag-Rugby. Teams from as far away as Barrow, Carlisle and Workington were represented at the finals. Although we improved every game we didn't manage to get that all important win, having drawn 1 and lost 4 very tough matches. The competition was at a high level and having not put much practice in we felt privilege to be at the tournament in the first place.
With Mr Coleclough offering mini-chedars to anyone who scored tries competition for the top try scorer was fierce but Shannah just pipped Diarmid 8 - 7.
Well played everyone!
A massive congratulation to our fantastic football and netball teams who played at Long Marton on Monday evening. It was a long night with some tough games, but eventually both teams cam out on top and took home the spoils. Well played!

Our first match was against Tebay which was a hardly fought match but one goal helped us on our way (Louis). After the close call with Tebay we played Orton but with pure class we beat them 6-0.
Kirkby Stephen Blues were next, our old nemesis, after losing to them last year, however it wasn’t the same this year the game was swinging in our favour, but with loads of missed chances from us the game stayed equal.
Brough were next. After coming up with three good results this was where it went downhill. The game was equally matched until Brough hit on the break and scored. They tightened their defence and Warcop were unable to break through. The game ended 1-0.
Not to be disillusioned we won the next game by three goals to nil against Kirkby Stephen Reds. Jonathan scoring the goal of the match.
Now on a roll, Kirkby Stephen Yellows were no match 4-0 with Rory scoring a hat trick.
Now all we had to do was wait. Had we done enough to get through? Time seemed to stand still. A roar erupted, we had done it!!
