Years 3/4 Football @ Cooper School
Miss Starr took a group of children to play football at Cooper School on Thursday 17th October. It was a little bit chilly, but the team did a brilliant job! They showed great enthusiasm, super skills and above all, excellent teamwork. Well done boys and girls! You can see a team picture on our STEDS SPORTS board in the school hall.
We are really proud to say that St. Edburg's, our current School Games Mark was awarded as SILVER and our current Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark was awarded as SILVER too! We apply for the Games Mark retrospectively, so our current academic year's application will be going in soon! These awards are 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!
Year 3/4 Boys Focus Festival @ The Leisure Centre
We have lots of brilliant events run by our Sports Captains and our Year 5's are now fully trained as 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!
Sports Captains and Young Leaders
We have a dedicated team of Sports Captains - a team of 20 children from across KS2. These children meet with Miss Butler once every fortnight. In the day to day school life, they help run events during playtimes, plan sports day, manage playground equipment and write match reports. You can find more information about our Sports Captains on our STEDS SPORTS board in the school hall.
Our Young Leaders team is a team of Year 5 children, led by Miss Matthews, who run games on the MUGA pitch every lunchtime for children in Years 1 and 2. The younger children love to take part in this, and with their training and experience, Year 5's are learning to provide a super, sporty and fun lunch time for those children.
Years 3/4 Girls Focus Festival @ The Leisure Centre
Mrs Sood and Mrs Williams took a group of Year 3/4 girls to Bicester Leisure Centre to take part in the Girls Focus Festival on Thursday 21st November. The girls took part in activities such as dance, martial arts, cheerleading and multi-skills. The teachers were really impressed with the girls' behaviour, and she said that their enthusiasm and sportsmanship was second to none! Well done girls!
