Miss Weetch and Mrs Petry took Year 1 to the multi-skills festival at Bicester Sports Centre. It was a great afternoon all round, the children had lots of fun and were suitably worn out by the end of the day! Well done to all the children, you were very well behaved and most importantly, had a wonderful afternoon!
We are really proud to say that St. Edburg's has been awarded a SILVER School Games Mark and a SILVER Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark! This award is a reflection of the fantastic sports we do at St. Edburg's. Through our affiliation to North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership, we give the children at St. Edburg’s the opportunity to participate in School Games such as tag rugby, hockey, football, dodgeball, cross country, athletics, dance and lots more!
Tag Rugby @ The Bicester School
What a brilliant event! Miss Butler couldn't have been more proud of our team; Harry, Alysha, Katelin, Rocco, Kayley, Clara, Harrison and Aaron. They worked seamlessly as a team and showed real enthusiasm and determination, especially when faced with tough decisions or tricky competitors. The team voted for Harry to be awarded the special Teamwork 'Value of the Games' Award for how he conducted himself during the tournament - he obviously had a very positive effect on them so well done Harry!
Great tournament all round and a huge well done to our representatives - you did St. Edburg's proud!
Years 1-6 Cross Country @ The Bicester School
We had a BRILLIANT time at the Bicester Primary Cross Country. Over 60 children took part and they finished their races with very tired but determined faces!
Thank you to all the staff and parents who helped out at this event, your help is hugely appreciated. And most importantly WELL DONE to all the children who raced, you should be proud of yourselves!
A special well done to Grace, Daniella, James and Harrison who qualified for the Cross Country FINALS - a huge achievement!
We have lots of brilliant clubs running at lunch times and after school, and our Year 5's and Year 6's are accustomed to being Young Leaders for the other children in the school. The Games Mark is a reflection of the sheer enthusiasm and enjoyment our children have for school sports, and all the hard work the teachers do! Thank you also to the parents who support us by collecting their children from clubs and sports events, and to those who have become regular spectators!
U11 Swimming @ Bicester Leisure Centre
What a tiring event for the Year 5's and 6's! The children tried really hard and were so supportive of each other, they really did St. Edburg's proud. We came first in some races and the children should be really pleased with themselves! Well done!
Year 2 Multi-skills @ Bicester Leisure Centre
Well done to all the Year 2's who went off to compete in a multi-skills tournament at the Leisure Centre. They really enjoyed themselves and were very enthusiastic throughout the afternoon. A special well done to Kobe for encouraging his team and doing his best. Also special mentions to Marc and Grace for being super speedy!
Not forgetting our teachers - thank you to Miss Welby, Ms Sumner, Miss Truman and Mrs Collett for taking the children to the festival.
Year 5/6 Athletics @ Bicester Leisure Centre
We had such a fun morning at The Sports Centre for Year 5/6 Atheletics! Miss Butler and Ms Sumner took a team of 20 and, as always, they did us proud! A special well done to Kacey who jumped the furthest in the long jump (out of all schoolgirls) and to Ollie and Miley who were awarded passion certificates for being so enthusiastic!
