Welcome to our Sports News page!!
What a brilliant dodgeball match we had against St Catherine's on Tuesday. Not only did we win every single match (so comfortably, we had to mix teams up) but it was wonderful to see so many different children represent the school. We had around 45 students - excellent to see WSG!
Year 3&4 Girls’ Football and Year 4 Boys’ Football
What an amazing performance by our Yr 3/4 girls at a freezing football tournament on Tuesday! They absolutely stormed through a really tough group, which had a number of very large schools. The highlight was a 4-0 victory over Chandler. We got through to the semi-finals, where a very close game ensued. It went to extra time, where with the very last kick of the game, WSG got the goal to send them through to the final! Unfortunately we just missed out against a very strong Tillingbourne team. However to come 2nd/10 is testament to a wonderful performance and brilliant commitment shown by the girls - well done!!
The Year 4 boys also competed, with a number of Yr 3 boys helping out. There were some very tough-fought matches and great improvements shown throughout. Well done boys!
Year 5/6 Netball
Well done to our netball girls who got better and better as the tournament went on!
Year 5 and 6 Indoor Cricket Tournament
We had a brilliant afternoon of cricket! It was a pleasure to take all of the team, who showed superb enthusiasm and quality of play. We bowled well and batted very solidly. A great performance to win the game!
Year 3 Boys Football Tournament
What an incredible performance from the Yr 3 team in the tournament at Tillingbourne on Tuesday! With 12 other schools competing, many much larger, we played some lovely football in the group stage, not conceding a single goal and going through as runners up to the semi-finals. Here, despite playing a very good team, we got our one chance on the break and Aston scored to send us through to the final! Unfortunately this was one step too far and we just lost out by one goal. However, to come 2 / 12 was a fantastic achievement.
Year 4 and 6 Hockey Tournament
On Tuesday afternoon, both Year 4 and Year 6 took teams to play hockey against a number of other schools. It was great to see the positive attitudes and determination throughout. Thank you to Miss Green and Mrs Prior for supporting the children at this event.
Year 2 Football Tournament
It was lovely to see our Year 2 team compete in their first school tournament at Longacre. Despite the tough competition, they secured a win and draw but most importantly for children of this age, they had huge smiles on their faces throughout! Thank you to Mrs Heard for accompanying them.
On Monday, 12 Year 6's went for Physifun training. This is a scheme which aims to encourage children to be active through a variety of lunch clubs; the year 6 children will begin running clubs after half term.
Cranleigh Junior Parkrun
Well done to the children (and parents!) who braved the rain to go to Cranleigh Junior Parkrun on Sunday! It was lovely to see some WSG present and past representatives there. Well done to Emily (Yr R), Abbie (Yr 1), Alice, Flo (Yr 3) Matthew (Yr 5), Sarah, Phoebe, Alexei and Eddie (Yr 6) and ex pupils Luke, Joe and Finn.
Cross Country vs Tillingbourne
We had a brilliant cross country competition against Tillingbourne School on Thursday. Over 100 children competed, showing determination, resilience and best of all, the smiles on faces showed how much they enjoyed it! WSG got three victories out of four - Lily (Yr3), Ethan (Yr3), and Ella (Yr4). Well done everyone who competed! Also thank you to sports leaders and staff who very successfully marshalled the event.
WSG vs St Cat's - Girls Football

Football at Tillingbourne.
Both Year 5 and 3 football teams did WSG proud at a football tournament against a number of other schools! Lots of great play, some brilliant victories and hard fought draws. Both teams secured third place. In addition, the four boys in Year 2 who represented the Year 3s all put in brilliant performances, as did Harry and Ollie with the Year 5s.
A clean sweep of victories over St Catherine's!
Some superb team play saw the Year 3, 4, 5 AND 6 teams win their dodgeball matches against St Catherine's. Over 40 children represented the school successfully - brilliant performances all around!

Year 5/6 Girls Netball
A great effort from our girls, many of whom participated in their first ever tournament - they gave it their all!

Year 6 Boys and Year 5 Girls Football Tournament
WSG Girls Football Tournament
Eleven year 5 girls were invited to a year 6 football tournament taking place at Tillingbourne school. Everyone played really well and the girls that went (Evie, Perla, Abigail, Charlotte H, Sarah, Aiste, Sophie, Millie, Amy, Phoebe vB and our great captain Charlotte U) each played their part really well.
It was a seven a-side tournament and we managed to get the ball on to the other side of the pitch a couple of times but sadly we didn’t score a goal! Unfortunately, we came 4th out of our group. “Our team played really well, we tried our hardest and that's what counts most” Charlotte U, Team Captain.
In the end, Chandler won fairly and we all realised that it doesn’t matter about winning, it’s the taking part that counts.

The exciting football festival at Cranleigh Prep! By Ollie M and Harry W
On Friday 22nd September, two teams from WSG went to Cranleigh Prep School to take part in a football festival. We arrived, very excited, and took our place in the hall. Following a welcome speech from the headmaster, we were treated to a Question and Answer session with ex-England and Chelsea footballer, Graeme Le Saux. There was even an amazing question from Ollie M about Leicester, which Graeme enjoyed! We then had a delicious, huge lunch, before the football tournament began.
WSG 1 had some tight matches to start with. We really got going in the final three matches, where we won two and drew one! Harry scored all four goals, and there were some great saves from Judah. WSG 2 showed great teamwork and determination throughout, in what was a first tournament for many of them. We even had to play each other at one point! A very close affair saw WSG 1 just secure a win by one goal.
We had a great day at Cranleigh Prep!
Spectacular Football Friendlies!
What a brilliant afternoon had, playing football against Tillingbourne School. This was a chance for lots of children to experience inter-school competition.
And they all did themselves proud!
Year 3: 4-2 (Harry with all 4 goals!)
Year 4: 5-0 (Oliver with 4 goals)
Year 5: 1 - 3 (Thomas with a great goal!)

We took boys and girls Year 5/6 cricket teams to compete in a tournament against other schools. Many of the children had not played cricket before, and performed valiantly! Great sportsmanship and encouragement was shown throughout - well done WSG!
Futsal Tournament by Michael and Sujeen
Wonersh & Shamley Green went to a Futsal tournament at Broadwater. The people who competed at this tournament were Michael, TJ, Luke, Sujeen, Alex and Grace. This tournament was a great experience for our team. We tried our best and played well. At the start we were a bit shaky but we had our confidence boosted by a great level as we had great sportsmanship and courage (this led us further into the game).
WSG didn’t have a great start against Chandler A’s by losing our first match by 1-0. The next match was a struggle as we still couldn’t find the back of the net and losing against Northmead 3-0.
However, WSG came to their best against Chandler B by beating them 3-1. We made it to the 3rd place and 4th place off. We were against Chandler B which we beat so Wonersh & Shamley Green were confident when we went into this game. After a great effort, WSG won the match 2-0 which made them get the place of 3rd .
Goal Scorers :
TJ (2) Sujeen (2) Luke (1)
Dodgeball vs Cranleigh Primary
Lots of children had a go at playing in a dodgeball match this week. There was superb enthusiasm, sportsmanship and great performances all round.
Each year group got a special skipping workshop, before showing off their skills to the rest of the school at the end of the day. Everyone has now caught the buzz, with skipping taking over the school playground!
Year 3/4 Boys and Girls Football Tournament
A brilliant display from both our boys and girls! Incredibly, both teams made it through their groups to the semi-finals. The girls excelled in a wonderful 5-0 victory vs Cranleigh Primary, before winning 2-1 and 1-0 to top the group. The boys won two of their three group stage games, including a superb 4-2 comeback victory vs Chandler. The boys were edged out in the semis to a strong Tillingbourne team.
The girls managed to win their semi to get through to the final. Sadly, they came across a very strong team to finish runners up. But what a brilliant performance from both teams, who were very proud of their efforts!
The Golden Game BY RORY AND ALEX
WSG under 10’s (with Louis, Michael and Harry T) traveled to Cranleigh Primary school to play a football friendly. The team was: Alex(C), Jonty, Rory, Luke, Michael, Louis, TJ, Harry S, Harry T and Joe. Cranleigh kicked off to let the game commence. We had a good start but unfortunately we let in 2 goals in quick succession.
Alex told us to keep our heads held high and to just try our best. What he said really helped us; TJ scored from a long range effort and Alex, 5 minutes later, scored a golden goal from the halfway line just like David Beckham did for United. A few minutes later, it was halftime and Mr Wiselka told us some negatives and positives.
2nd half - We played some great football and created lots of chances but we couldn’t score. We had a great attack and then one of their defenders decided to punch the ball away; our penalty! Harry T took it and…. Smashed the ball into the back of the net (3 - 2 to WSG).
Unfortunately, we gave away another goal from a goal hanger, that was the last goal of the game. Both teams then had lots of chances and Louis smashed the ball wide to end the game. FT 3 - 3.
KS2 girls football vs St Catherine's
We staged two matches involving 25 of our girls, which is fantastic to see! Not only that, four of the Sports leaders, Harry, Rory, William and Luke coached and refereed the matches.
The Y3/4 girls had an extremely close encounter, eventually losing 4-3.
However the Y5/6 team put in an incredible performance to come out as victors, 2-1!!
Year 5 Netball
Our Year 5 girls did themselves proud in a netball tournament at St Catherine's School. They came second in their first ever matches - well done girls!
WSG champions!!! By Henry and Sujeen
On the 9th of March 2017, WSG football team competed in a football tournament at Tillingbourne school. When the team arrived, they were split into an A team and a B team. Most of the team probably thought that this would be another loss but they did know what was in store for them...
The A team included:
Sujeen; Michael; Louis; Luke; Harry S; TJ; Alex; Henry.
As many hours went on, the A team played and conquered many teams without conceding one single goal. This meant that WSG got through into the semifinals, beating 6 other teams along the way!
WSG A Team came second in the group stage; this meant that WSG moved onto the semi-finals playing against Tillingbourne School. WSG tried their best, missed a superb one on one opportunity, Harry hit the bar and then Sujeen fired home to win the game 1-0.
They moved onto play in the final against St.James.This was going well for WSG but the score was still a draw.This went into extra time (5 mins). St.James kicked it out for corner Luke went up to take it. Luke crossed the ball into the box and Henry smashed into the bottom corner. WE WON THE TOURNAMENT!!!!!!!!!!
Sujeen (5), Henry (2), Harry S (1)
Tag Rugby Year 5/6
We entered two teams into a Tag Rugby event at Guildford Rugby Club. Year 6 found the competition tough but really improved as it went on, with some great tries!

Year 3/4 Football vs Cranleigh Primary
Dramatic match against Cranleigh! By Ollie and Judah
On Monday, Year 3 / 4 had a match against Cranleigh Primary. We had a thorough warm up, until they arrived. The match was always going to be difficult because of the muddy field! There was even a big puddle on the pitch so the ball didn’t run smoothly.
As the whistle blew, we started strongly with an early goal from Ollie after a great cross from TJ. We then scored again; a brilliant strike from TJ. However a few moments later, WSG struggled to get the ball clear and Cranleigh nicked a goal: 2-1. We had so many good chances, open goals, but the ball just wouldn’t go in! And then out of nowhere, Cranleigh scored two goals just before half time. 3-2.
The second half started well, with lots of chances for WSG, but Cranleigh broke away to score again. Sadly as we kept pushing for another, they scored a sneaky goal on the counter attack, seconds before the whistle.
Overall, a 5-2 loss but a great match! We just need to take our chances and make sure we are communicating well all the time.
We are Running the World!! Every class is aiming to run at least one mile a day to get the whole way around the world. This gives children a break from learning, physical fitness and develops skills such as resilience.
Year 6 Dodgeball Tournament
Our Year 6 team competed brilliantly to come 3rd at the tournament!!
Dodgeball at St Catherine's

On Sunday, many of the talented swimmers at our school took to Cranleigh Leisure Centre to compete against five other schools. We saw some fantastic individual performances!
Year 6 Football match vs Cranleigh Primary
Our Year 6 could be forgiven for thinking the worst after going 3-0 down inside two minutes. However a spirited fightback saw two excellent second half goals and we hit the bar. A 3-2 loss but an excellent performance.
Year 5 Football match vs Cranleigh Primary
The Incredible footie match against Cranleigh! By Harry and Rory
On a very cloudy Tuesday, a team of year 5 (and a few year fours) hosted a football friendly match against Cranleigh Primary. The team for WSG was Luke, Harry, Rory, Jonty, William, Alexander, Finley, Alex, Joe, Jacob and TJ.
The match started well for WSG - after only a few minutes, Luke had smashed the ball into the back of the net! 1 - 0 to WSG!! As soon as we had scored the goal, Alex was saying, “They’re going to come back hard on us”. He was right because after a lot of passing and kicking, they had equalised the match - 1 - 1.
After that, Cranleigh had their heads high and played their hardest so before we knew it, they had scored again! 2 - 1 to Cranleigh. A few minutes later, the half time whistle blew. Mr Wiselka gave us a few tips and said what we were doing well.
The second half was a bit more exciting Because 5 goals were scored. At the end of the match, Cranleigh had scored three more goals and WSG had scored two. Alexander, our goalkeeper, had produced some great saves, but it still wasn’t enough because the opposition had won 5 - 3.
Earlier on in school, Wonersh & Shamley green football team were the underdogs but now we are ready for anything!!
Year 3 and Year 5 Football Tournament
We had two brilliant performances from both teams. The Year 5s managed a superb 3rd place out of 8, keeping up with much bigger schools. The Year 3s won half of their games, drew two and lost one. A fantastic afternoon!

Cross Country at St Catherine's
The review of the phenomenal cross country race at St Catherine's 2016
By Isabelle, Ruby and Ella
On Tuesday the 13th of September 2016 the girls from Wonersh & Shamley Green school went to St Catherine's for a cross-country race. This report will tell you a detailed description of the incredible race that occurred only a few days ago.
Everyone was in their smashing PE kit and were doing many warm ups to prepare for the big races ahead. The first race was the year 3’s chance to shine. They did one lap of the huge course and came to the end panting and puffing (while feeling proud, and delighted, inside). Everyone did extremely well… we could not wait for the results!
Next came the year 4’s, they were told what to do and then zoomed off leaving a trail of dust behind them. They did 2 whopping laps around the field them came to a fantastic flourishing finish!!!!
Next came the year 5’s. Their worried levels were off the charts but their courage was there to push them on and help them finish the race. They all felt like it would never end but it soon came to an abrupt stop.
Soon it was the year 6’s turn to run, they powered off and before you knew it… you could feel the wind rushing past you as they past on their second lap! When they finished their last lap, they hardly seemed tired at all!
Next, we all poured water over each other because we were so hot! It was very cool and relaxing after the boiling race.
After all the races, we all took our places aside all the other schools and waiting to hear our scores we were all very excited to see if we had got any medals! We hadn't won any medals but still did really well. We improved so much from last year!!!
We all had a fantastic time on the hottest day of the month in 40 years. We had come away happy, exhausted and proud.
