Speed Stacking Competition

On Thursday 18th January, 8 schools (20 teams) entered the Canterbury Academy Sports Partnership Speed Stacking Festival. Morale was high, and we all did really well and tried our best.

Here is a quick recap of what the activity is all about: the aim of the sport, as the name loosely suggests, is to stack a number of specially designed cups in a very specific order and pattern. The cups are then returned to their original positions. All of this is performed against the clock. There a number of variations in how the cups are set up and stacked, and there is even a relay round where teams compete against each other.

After a series of different Speed Stacking challenges the results were announced. The pupils applauded each team as their individual positions were announced and a floor-slapping drum roll built up the suspense nicely as each age group’s winner was announced. Congratulations to everyone who took part, and a huge educational life ‘Well Done’ to the winning teams from Blean Primary School.  


On Monday 22nd January a group of boys played a home game of football against Chartham Primary School. We had 2 half’s of 10 minutes. We started strong with Gus playing a pass into George. He took a touch and scored top corner.

We had 1 goal but we needed to get 2-0 up so we worked to get it! They had a goal kick and smashed it up the pitch and Nate stopped it. He got it down at his feet and played a pass into me. I took it pass two players and past it to George, who went on to score another goal.  

We all had another try to get us up to 3-0. Ollie gave a great ball to George who scored his third goal. We were doing well but unfortunately they scored. The final score was 5-1 to us. 


A strength of our school is our dedicated and talented team of staff who are committed to the well-being of pupils.  We have created a learning environment where children feel challenged and supported in their learning; consequently pupils progress well as they move through the school and achieve well by the time they leave.  There is a link to the OfSTED data dashboard under ‘useful links’ on this site where you can compare Blean School data to all schools and similar schools.

This is a friendly and caring school where children are helped to grow up as considerate, sensible young people. As well as being proud of our academic successes we nurture good manners, mutual respect, tolerance, teamwork and, of course, a sense of humour.  Our aim is that the knowledge, skills and attitudes experienced here at Blean School will lead to a lifetime of fulfilment.
