Solefield wins Gold & Silver

A mix of boys from Year 6, 7 and 8 took part in the Kent Schools Table Tennis Tournament at The Howard School in Rainham. Solefield were represented by three teams out of 16 playing group matches, then onto the Cup and Consolation finals. All three of our teams ended up in the Consolation Cup against five other schools. After many single set games, Solefield A team would play Solefield C team in the final, only for it to be a 4-4 draw with the A team coming out on top to win Gold on a points scored count back. A fantastic result, representing the first county Table Tennis Tournament that we have sent teams to.

Many thanks to Mr Smeeth for driving the team.

Charlie in the movie 'Matilda the Musical'

We caught up with our very own Charlie B, 6F who appears in the new movie, 'Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical', which is being released in cinemas today!

* Did you meet any famous people? No, I didn’t but my friend who I was in the movie with, got to meet Emma Thompson.

* How did you get this role in Matilda? I have an agent and they put me forward for an audition. As I do a lot of ballet and dancing, I got the job!

* Tell us about the actual filming, what was it like? It took six weeks. The main characters were filming for a year. We filmed in a massive warehouse which was all painted yellow. It was very strange.

* Did you get paid? I did, but not very much! I did get a free lunch each day though.

What an experience Charlie. We can't wait to see it!
