Sports News

January to middle of March was busy and very successful as always!

Our inclusive sports team had numerous events: indoor athletics, boccia, New-Age curling. They achieved 2nd place and won the Spirit of the Games Trophy too. Riley Wells qualified for the level 3 county competition and the national level too. Well done.

As always Stokes Wood teams participate in numerous football competitions. Participation is the key word and as many pupils as possible, both boys, girls and Y1-6 are encouraged to compete. There are no champions to date excepting that the attitude and effort of our girls teams, in particular has been commented on and celebrated which is certainly something we value and celebrate.

As always Stokes Wood have sent teams to all the School Games Competitions: the swimming gala, High 5, Quick Stiks, basketball and gymnastics. We were proud of all our teams, but particularly the gymnastics teams. The KS1 team took the gold medal. Iris, Ariella and Ariana took the gold and bronze individual medals and the KS2 team came 3rd. In the Level 3 county event the KS1 team came 3rd. A fantastic achievement.

The cross country event was a whole school success. The Daily Mile truly showed its worth with 18 qualifier for the County Championship. For the first time we took the maximum number of athletes (48) and saw so many of them complete the race in amazing times and with great determination. There were a number of gold, silver and bronze medals as well as personal bests.  Those who qualified battled against mud and rain in the County event. Well done everyone!
For the less competitive, 20 Y3 and 4 children attended a health festival and had a super day being physical active and learning about healthy eating and life styles.

Our Y5 dance group performed at St Paul’s in their first ever performance. It certainly looked impressive. Thank you to Miss Pegg and Talia who worked so hard to prepare the children and sort really effective costumes.
