Sport Highlights

Wow what a fantastic sporting start to the new school year! 

To start we had the Key Stage 2 Cross Country in Stoke Row. Great runs from everybody and thankfully the rain stayed away! Ellie H and Persie received the medals for Determination. A great Olympic Value choice for that location as Stoke Row is definitely a tough course, well done everyone!  

Last week we had the Year 3/4 boys playing football at Langtree. They were tough matches but the boys played brilliantly, they showed excellent teamwork and some fantastic footwork skills! Ben recieved the medal for Respect, well done boys, superb effort.  

Finally, yesterday saw the Key Stage 1 pupils doing rather well in their cross country!

Out of the 4 races, we won 2nd place twice with Naomi placing for the Year 1 girls and Dexter placing for the Year 2 boys. Outstanding running from both, well done! The children were all fantastic. They ran with courage and determination and still smiled throughout, despite the torrential rain that descended! A big thank you to Suzanne Bradley for helping along with the Owl mums, you all helped hugely with trying to keep everyone dry! Jessie and George received the medals for Courage. Well done.
