‘You are never fully dressed without a smile’ at Moyles Court School!

The final note has been played, the final word spoken and the final step danced. The Moyles Court performance of ‘Annie’ is sadly over!

The audience at the Barrington Theatre, Ferndown, were temporarily transported to 1933 New York and they watched in awe as Annie (played by Sophie in Year 5) sang her heart out as she fought her battles with Miss Hannigan (played by Seren in Year 7), willed her relationship with Daddy Warbucks (played by Richard Milner-Smith, Moyles Court Headmaster) to succeed and thwarted the dastardly plot of Rooster and Lily!

Richard Milner-Smith, Headmaster says: “The quality of the production was simply outstanding. We had over 50 pupils performing in the show, ranging from Year 2 to Year 9. Everyone who took part performed with great confidence and skill and they all applied themselves brilliantly. Personally, it has been a pleasure and a privilege to spend time working with our pupils during this production and equally our staff thoroughly enjoyed taking on cameo roles.”

Mrs Suzanne Dixon, Head of Music and Director of Annie, adds: “This production will have created so many wonderful memories. I am so very proud of each and every cast member. The support and participation from the staff was superb. We are hugely grateful for all the family and friends of our pupils who came along to support and were wonderful audiences to perform to.”

Car Booty’licious!

The Annual Moyles Court School Car Boot Sale took place last Saturday on the School playing fields.  It was lovely to see so many members of the School Community either buying or with their own tables.

The PTA did a marvellous job arranging the whole thing and supplying us with tea and coffee, cakes and bacon butties!  They raised just over £600, which is a fantastic sum.

The boarders would like to say a huge thank-you to all the parents and staff who donated items for the car boot sale.  We managed to raise over £50 which is going towards the end of term boarders party.

Y6/5 Cricket Match vs Leehurst Swan School – 20th May

Match Report

Leehurst Swan won the toss and put Moyles Court in to bat first.  LHS bowled well in the early overs and our opening batsmen struggled to score runs. Unfortunately, Hayden was run out in the third over and then Edward – one of our strong batsmen was bowled out for a duck in the fourth over. All the following batsmen struggled to score with only Josh able to offer any resistance to the LHS bowling. At the end of our 16 overs, we were 38 for 8.

LHS opening batsmen got a solid start and were able to score 18 runs before we got our first wicket. We were able to take a further 3 wickets before LHS were able to knock up the required 39 runs in 10.4 overs for the loss of only 4 wickets.

We were well beaten in this game by a team that simply batted and bowled better than we did.  We will certainly be working on all areas of our game before our next game.

Man-of-the-Match: Josh

U11 Rounders vs The Park School – 20th May

Match Report

As The Park School arrived early, we had plenty of time, so played to get the whole team.

Moyles Court batted first and scored 18 rounders in 25 minutess and The Park only got 4 of our team out. Our aim then was to work hard to get players out to keep the score low.  We achieved this by getting their whole team out, within the time, for their score of only 7.5 rounders.

We had time left to have a short 2nd innings of 18 balls each team. This brought the final score to 23.5 to 12 to Moyles Court.

Both sides used this game as a coaching match, to give advice during play so hopefully our team learnt from the experience. However, they still did well to win by such a large score and to succeed in getting so many players out.

 Players of the Match:    Tatum – for backing up players, stopping the ball and making quick decisions and strong batting and Chloe for effort in backing up.

Final Score:  Park School – 12 rounders    Moyles Court –  23.5 rounders

 

Y4/3 Rounders Match vs Buckholme Towers School – 12th May

Match Report

In a well contested game Moyles Court batted first and with some excellent batting from most members of the team we were able to score 7 rounders. Our running between the bases was excellent and our batsmen were able to find gaps in the Buckholme field. When Buckholme batted, our fielders were able to constantly put the batsmen under pressure and they struggled to score rounders.  Moyles Court were able to restrict the opposition to scoring just 5 rounders and ended up winning by 2 rounders.

Players-of-the-Match: Harrison and Maia

Y6/5 Rounders Match vs Buckholme Towers School – 13th May

Match Report

Buckholme Towers won the toss and asked Moyles Court to bat first. With a strong batting line-up we were able to score 15 rounders in our first innings. With most players contributing towards the score and with some excellent running between the posts, this was a formidable score to beat.

When Buckholme Towers came in to bat Moyles Court dominated the pitch with some really good fielding, excellent catching and accurate throwing to bases. We were able to get the required 3 players of Buckholme out for just 5 rounders.

The second game went the same way, with a victory of 7 rounders to 5 in favour of Moyles Court and the last game resulted in a draw of 2-2. Credit should go to all members of the team who all batted and fielded really well.

Players-of-the-Match: Josh, Henry and Edward

Y6/5 Cricket Match vs Bournemouth Collegiate School – 6th May

Match Report

Moyles Court won the toss and put BCS into bat first. For our first match of the season and only limited practice sessions, all our main bowlers bowled with good line and length and we gave away minimal extras. We also fielded well and took 2 really good catches from Callum and Harry.  With 3 wickets for Callum, 3 for Edward, 2 for Harry and 1 for Josh we were able to restrict BCS to 38 for 9 in 14 overs.

Although our batting line-up struggled to score runs; with several batsman falling to low scores, our captain Edward was able to bat through for 12 runs not out and take us to the required score of 39 to win by 3 wickets. This was a low scoring game but Moyles Court should be pleased with this win as it showed promise for the season ahead.

Man-of-the-Match: Edward
