    District Sports

    On the 1st of July we took a team of 27 to Archway for the annual district sports competition. The children competed against other Stroud schools on the track and field. There were some fantastic performances throughout the day and the team cheered everyone on with great gusto! In the end we missed out on the medals by a single point. This didn't dampen their moods and they are already looking forward to next years event.

All 8 children took part in a 400m, 50m sprint, standing long jump and a howler throw. On one of the hottest days of the year they were fantastic and each one performed so well and displayed great attitudes in difficult conditions. These children filled me with pride and should be very proud of themselves!

    TK Rounders Team

    On Friday the 7th June we were again, invited up ton Thomas Keble to partake in a rounders competition. The Y6's performed fantastically across the 6 games played.

    On the 22nd November we took a yr3/4 and a yr5/6 mixed team to the Atlas football festival in Stonehouse. The two teams took part in a group stage followed by knockout stages. Both teams made it through their respective groups and into the knockout rounds.

    The 3/4 team managed to score a last minute winner to bring the trophy back to Thrupp. The 5/6's were unlucky to concede a deflected effort to come away with second place.

    Yr 6 Netball Tournament

We finished the 1st stage coming in 4th overall, winning 3 games and drawing the other. This meant we were placed in a play-off match. In a close match we came out second best, however to take this team to their 1st netball tournament and finish 4th, finishing above much larger schools I couldn't be happier. Great morning with lots of smiles.
