Sport at Stockham

On Wednesday 16th March the whole school took part in race for life to race money for cancer research UK.

It was a great afternoon and everyone had loads of fun! Thank you to everyone who sponsored a child and we raised an amazing £3062!!!

In July, we held our KS1 and KS2 school games days to celebrate the sport and team spirit at out school. The KS1 event was organised and run entirely by our fantastic sports leaders who did an amazing job. In KS2, we played rounders, crab football, hoop ball and hockey! 

On Friday 16th September 25 children from key Stage 2 took part in the Wantage schools cross country competition. Everyone was amazing and showed superb determination – it was such a long way to run!!

Congratulations to the 4 boys who are through to the next round of the competition in October!

On Wednesday 5th October the 5/6 boys took part in the next round of the vale running competition. They all tried really hard after lots of training and 2 boys got personal bests on the day – even when running a longer distance!

Well done everyone!

On Friday 14th October, 9 girls from years 4-6 took part in the first of 3 friendly football tournaments. The girls were there to learn some football skills and take part in some matches.  Everyone had lots of fun and tried their best. We are now on the hunt for a football coach to run a girls team!

On Friday 4th November 6 children attended the brand new Boccia tournament at Wantage Leisure Centre. This was totally new to the children who had never played the game before. The teams did really well and special congratulations must be said to Tilly Arnold, Leo Rusher and Logan Mills for coming 1st out of 16 teams!!!!

On Monday 7th November, 21 children took part in a tag rugby competition. They had great fun playing against all the other schools and there were some really close matches. Well done everyone!!!

On Monday 28th November, 8 children attended the Wantage partnership swimming Gala. They worked well as a team and showed great determination with their swimming – even the tricky strokes!

Over all, the girls came 6th and the boys came 3rd – meaning they are through to the vale round! Well done!

As well as the swimming, on Monday 28th 3 Logan, Tilly and Leo attended another Boccia competition with schools from a wider area. They played some amazing matches and should be really impressed with the aiming skills they used and the tactics they developed as a team! Brilliant!

On Wednesday1st February, 4 boys from years 5 and 6 went to the Vale round of the swimming gala! Unfortunately, we were a swimmer down due to illness but luckily Finley Kerman stepped in at the last minute showing great confidence - we owe him a big thank you! The boys tried really hard and their swimming was excellent! Well done boys!
On Thursday 9th February, we attended the mixed football tournament with 7 children from years 3 and 4. Everyone showed brilliant perseverance and determination in the very cold weather and it paid off - we came fourth overall after playing all the other teams!

On Friday 24th February, we took 3 teams to the Wantage netball tournament. We were very lucky with the weather as it was a lovely afternoon! All the children had lots of fun and learnt some new skills. Hopefully we will see some of these faces in the tournament again next year! Congratulations to our A team who came 3rd overall out of all the other large school teams! Out of 7 matches we lost 1, drew 2 and won 4! We also came second out of the large schools in our spring line partnership. That means we are through to the Vale round of the competition! A big thank you to all the parents who came and supported us on the day! It was a great turn out and really helped to encourage the children.

On Tuesday 14th March, 7 children attended the Vale netball finals. They played amazingly winning 2 of their games and losing to very closely (2-0, 2-1). Although we did not make it through, the children were proud about the fact that they beat the team that did make it through!

On Tuesday 28th March, the year 3 and 4 classes had their house boccia tournament! They all enjoyed the game and learnt some new skills. Congratulations to the green teams from both year 3 and year 4 for winning the tournament over all and earning a huge 20 points for their totaliser! Thank you to the adults for running the event and to Tilly and Logan from year 6 for helping to lead it - you were excellent!
On Tuesday 25th April, 8 children from year 4 attended the tennis competition. They had some incredibly tough matches - even having to play against club players - and showed amazing determination and perseverance the whole time! Thank you to Tom from Wantage Lawn Tennis Club for working with the children in the run up to the day and supporting them at the event! Well done everyone!
On Thursday 18th May, 8 children from years 5 and 6 attended the partnership cricket competition. They really impressed all the staff because, even with some tough games, they kept their heads held high, tried their best and couldn't wait to play their games. Well done to all of you for using your learning powers to represent our school so well! 
On Thursday 18th May, year 5 had their house cricket tournament. They all learnt new skills, showed determination to have a go if they were a bit nervous and had lots of fun. Congratulations to the green team who were the overall winners on the day!

On Monday 22nd May, Year 6 had an ultimate Frisbee competition. They had been practicing their skills in prior lessons and all put them to good use on the day. They were very determined to try their best and had lots of fun at the same time. Well done everyone but a big congratulations to red house who were the champions on the day and earnt 10 points for their star totaliser!

On Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th June, both year 3/4 and 5/6 Quad kid competitions took place. The children did a fantastic job in the very hot weather and staff members were impressed with the team work and support they showed each other during and between events. All the children tried really hard at every event they did – especially the long distance races. 

Congratulations to the 5/6 team who came 6th out of 13 teams and second in the SPS partnership schools. A special mention also needs to be made for Elliot E who was the second highest scoring boy in the whole event!  Well done all!

On Thursday 25th June, we held our dodge ball house colour competition.  Although it was a competition, the main aim was for all children to have fun and try something new - especially the foundation children. We saw so much teamwork, confidence building and sportsmanship on the day we were impressed with all the children.
Congratulations to the green team who were the over all winners. A huge thank you needs to go to all our year 6 sports leaders who ran the event for everyone and looked after key stage one so well - you were very impressive.
