Inter House Sports - October 2021
Well done to everyone for such a wonderful sports afternoon to end our term. The children all came to school wearing their house colours ready to take part in our sports events. KS2 all took part in house matches against. They all showed such great skill and teamwork. The children encouraged one another and supported their houses. The winning team will be announced after half term.
Meryl Miller spent the afternoon with us leading the most wonderful Zumba on the school playground. The children all had so much fun and it was so wonderful to see so many happy faces moving to the music outside. We were so lucky with the wonderful weather too!
All the children had the opportunity to take part in all the games and activities set up by KS2 in the cage and on the field. The children all loved the parachute games and all the skipping activities and enjoyed the egg and spoon races. It was wonderful to see the children playing so many team games.
Year 4 Football
On Thursday afternoon on October 21st, our Football Coach, Andy Pritchett, took a group of Year 4 children to a tournament at Cirencester Town Football Arena.
The children did incredibly well all took part with such enthusiasm. Stratton won five out of their six matches and only let one goal in during the afternoon.
A big well done to everyone who played and supported.
Cross country - October 2021
On Tuesday 5th October, a large group of KS2 children went to Cirencester Kingshill School to compete in a cross country event. Despite very blustery conditions, the children all did incredibly well. Everyone showed such great support and encouragement to one another. The Year 3 and 4 teams came first overall, each achieving a gold medal. The Year 5 and 6 boys teams came second overall, each achieving a silver medal. Year 5 and 6 girls came away with bronze medals. We are so proud of all the children for such great running and team work.
Multi Sports- Year 3 and 4 September 2021
A group of children from year 3 and 4 went to Deer Park School to take part in an afternoon of Multi Sports. The event was led by the young leaders at Deer Park School. The children had a wonderful time.
Year 5 & 6 Football
Thursday afternoon was the rearranged football tournament but this time was held at Cirencester Arena. Throughout the day, Stratton played free-flowing, pass and move football which led to all the other schools being concerned about our results. After six games, Stratton had won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1 with goals coming from all over the team and included a couple of clean sheets. Agonisingly, we finished second overall, just one point behind the eventual winners. Well done to the boys, they were great advocates for the school and thank you to the parents that came to cheer them on!
Football Tournament - September 2021
A group of KS2 children attended a Football Tournament at Deer Park School. The young leaders at Deer Park led the groups and the children all had a wonderful time.
Year 3 & 4 Football
At Cirencester Arena, another football event occurred with a team going to represent Stratton. After a successful group stage, Stratton finished second in their group meaning they went into the third/fourth play-off. Unfortunately, that didn’t go our way but Mr Crampton has mentioned he was really impressed with the attitude and comradery that the children showed. Thank you to Mr Crampton for supporting the children and for the parents too!
Sportshall AthleticsA team from Year 3 & 4 went to Deer Park for the much anticipated Sportshall Athletics event. This competition entails track and field sports which you would expect to find outside but indoors. It was a highly competitive event; however, the children were superb, winning 8 out of the 12 track events which gave them a strong platform for the field events. Overall, Stratton was the leading large school and the winning school overall. Well done everyone and thank you parents for the support!
‘I loved the sprint events and we were all so pleased to win! It was great fun.’
On Monday October 21st, a gallant group of runners from Years 4, 5 and 6 headed to Kingshill to take part in the team relay cross country event. We entered 6 teams in total- a boys team and a girls team for each year group. Everybody produced some fantastic running, determination and teamwork which led to much success and every team finishing in the top 4! The Year 5 boys were particularly impressive and won their race convincingly. Well done to all who took part and thank you to both the parents and Miss Bishop and Miss Pudifoot for their support.
Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed our sports day last week and helped make it such a great event. We were fortunate with lovely weather, superb competitors (including the adults in their races!) and great team spirit.
The eventual winners of the house competition were Tinglesfield, well done to them.
Thank you to everyone involved in the planning and organisation on the day and, in particular, Mr Breen.
Thirty Key Stage 2 children ventured to Cheltenham College to watch day 3 of the County Championship match between Gloucestershire and Leicestershire. After watching some early wickets for Leicestershire, Stratton got the chance to try out some of their own skills with some of Gloucestershire’s coaches. The children showed off their batting, fielding and bowling skills in a number of different drills and exercises. During the lunch interval, everyone was allowed to go on to the field of play to show the other spectators their throwing and catching. Everyone had a great day (it didn’t rain!), thank you to the adults that helped.
On Wednesday June 5th, a large number of KS2 pupils travelled to Deer Park School to take part in District Sports and events such as running races, speed bounce, long jump, and ball throwing were included. Stratton did extremely well and we have several pupils who have been selected to go on to represent the school at Area Sports.
