Sport Highlights

Term 1, Week 8 2020/21

What an exciting week for sport at school! The children have been working hard for the last few weeks practicing to get their longest long jump and throw, fastest sprint and fastest distance run to compete in the Partnership Virtual Quadkids competition. Their hard work has paid off as we have some brilliant results! Year groups were scored individually with 4 schools competing overall, Whitchurch, Goring, Stoke Row and Checkendon. With two combined teams (Y1 and Y2 competing as Y2; Y3 and Y4 competing as Y4); Year Group Team results were Year 2: 2nd; Year 4:1st; Year 5: 3rd and Year 6: 2nd. Along with the fantastic team scores we had some amazing individual results! Again, these results are over ALL the schools entered meaning our children have done exceptionally well. Clio finished 1st overall for the Year 2 girls; Jessie 3rd overall for the Year 4 girls; Kitty 2nd overall for the Year 4 girls; Abigail 3rd overall for the Year 5 girls; Wills 3rd overall for the Year 4 boys; Isaac 3rd for the Year 6 boys and Louie 2nd for the Year 6 boys. I am so proud of all the children and the hard work they put in.  I was particularly impressed with those that showed the true determination and passion to succeed by improving their scores day after day.  Congratulations everybody. Go Team Checkendon! 

These brilliant QuadKids scores have given us our first House Tournament of the term! Taking their individual points, adding them up into their houses and combining with the house points the children have been earning all term in PE and lunch clubs - we have a winner! This term's House Cup goes to: Yellow House

Well done Yellow House, winning with 3150 points,  followed by Green House with 3055 points Red House 3rd with 3020 points and Blue House 4th with 2810 points. Congratulations to everyone, they have all worked extremely hard this term and I'm already looking forward to more sporting action next term.

Running Club is also going from strength to strength now with 29 children on the register. Do get in touch with me at running@checkendon.oxon.sch.uk if you think your child may like to come and join the fun. 

And finally, a big well done to Ava for competing in her first Cross Country competition, finishing with a clear round and then she went on to win the pairs with her friend Millie!  It is great to hear of any sporting triumphs outside of school so do please let me know!
