Sport at Stockham

On Wednesday 10th November, Stockham hosted the Wantage schools tag rugby competition. The children were very excited to be able to take part in a sporting competition and we took 3 teams - more than any other school. On the day, all the children were so enthusiastic and it was great to see them all having lots of fun and taking part. They were all excellent team players, supporting each other and never giving up - our usual Stockham style. There were many exciting and close matches including a year 6 vs year 5 game - which ended in a draw. Eventually, our Stockham A team ended up in the final to St James and after a close game lost 2-0. A great start back to competitions! 

On Friday 1st October, we held our sponsored fitness circuit and motivational assembly with athlete Nerys Pearce who was very engaging and inspiring for the children. It was a really fun day and all the children were full of energy and enthusiasm. As a school, we managed to raise the enormous amount of £2, 024.67! This is absolutely incredible and we want to say a huge thank you to our children for taking part and to all the parents and carers in the local community who supported the children through sponsorship. This money both supports the charity, who are able to keep running and supporting Olympic and Paralympic athletes to compete at the highest level, and our school where we now have a large amount of money to dedicate to PE equipment in school. The children have been celebrating through receiving their sponsorship rewards. Well done everyone!
