SJS Sports Leaders 2018

posted 9 Oct 2018, 09:37 by J Tee

We have had a fantastic take up of children wanting to train up to become Sports Leaders this year and work alongside our lunchtime support team to deliver sports activity sessions on the yard. The 16 children selected have all completed the Sports Leader training delivered by Nikki, our Sports Partnership Manager to develop their confidence and subject knowledge.  The aim is to provide our lower school children with more opportunities to take part in physical activity and to develop fundamental skills that will help them in P.E and sport. We look forward to seeing the impact this has on our lower school yard. Good luck TEAM!

Cross Country

posted 9 Oct 2018, 09:23 by J Tee

The new cross country season has started well with good numbers of children from Stocksbridge Junior School attending in race 1 (Bolehills Park) and race 2 (Parkwood Springs). The regular members of the team (Tate; Harry; Lucas; Ava; Isaak; Lexie; Ellie W; Evan; George; Thomas; Rose; Grace; George and Thomas) have all started strong with some exceptional performances from Alfie (42nd), Flynn (45th) and Benji (82nd) who have all made excellent progress from previous races. We are gradually introducing some Y3 children who have impressed in their athletics lessons in P.E and have demonstrated the stamina required to run the difficult courses. Both Molly (51st) and Ellie (30th) both running against children a year older than themselves are shining and we look forward to some more selected Y3 children competing in upcoming race. Well done TEAM and keep up the amazing efforts… 

Y5 Kwik Cricket Competition

Another fantastic afternoon of sport in the Y5 Kwik Cricket competition taking place at Stocksbridge Cricket Club. 34 children, many who have not yet taken part in a competition this year played against teams from Deepcar and St Annes. We had 4 teams all enjoying being part of this well run cricket competition and for some, a chance to learn a new game. In the boys and girls league, we finished runners up, and for the mixed and superstar teams we finished a respectable 3rd place. Players of the tournament were Ellie M and for the boys, Charlie R who both play cricket at a competitive level and were real role models for other. A great effort by everyone! Well done.  

KS2 Swimming Gala 2018

posted 25 May 2018, 02:46 by J Tee   [ updated 25 May 2018, 03:56 ]

Last night at Ponds Forge, our swimming team were in action competing again in the 'A' league, which means we are up against some of the strongest schools in Sheffield. Mrs Proost and Mrs Corns have done an amazing job putting together the team and providing extra race and technique training down at the Leisure Centre. In addition, we are very grateful for 'Friends of SJS' for providing t-shirts and race caps for the team which looked really smart. 

The ten races consisted of Freestyle and Medley relays which is a real team effort from both lower and upper school, with some first time swimmers taking part. The races are very testing of the children endurance but every team member gave 100% for their school and gave it a real good go. We ended up placing 6th overall out of 9 schools and will maintain our place in the top league for 2019. Well done team Stocksbridge!

Y5/6 Outdoor Athletics Heat 1

posted 23 May 2018, 09:32 by J Tee

Heat 1 of the athletics competition had some of the stronger sporting schools taking part, which made for a really exciting and competitive event. The standard was high, so qualifying through to the City finals was really going to challenge our young athletes. Each competitor took part in two events from either a run, jump or throw and had to finish in the top 4 to qualify. Stocksbridge Junior School as always demonstrated a real determination to do their very best and everyone taking part did themselves proud. We are pleased to announce that Mason and Max qualified for the 80m sprint; Lillie and Martha in the throw; Alfie in the long distance; Tyler in the jump and Arley in the race walk. Congratulation to them and well done everyone for all your efforts...

Y5 Hotshots Basketball Competition

posted 2 May 2018, 08:14 by J Tee

Stocksbridge Junior School's Y5 basketball team attended a very exciting and well organised competition at the High School. 3 teams from the local cluster of schools and 3 from the Bradfield area raised the standards and made it a very enjoyable event. Team Stocksbridge showed high levels of determination throughout the 5 games and created lots of shooting opportunities with Lillie (6), Leon (8), Jayden (1) and Arley (1) all scoring fantastic baskets. Well done Stocksbridge!

A big thank you to all parents and family who supported our children at the competition. 

Also, well done to Nikki from Links Sports Partnership and her team of Y10 leaders for running a great evening of sport. 

Judo at SJS

posted 29 Mar 2018, 05:06 by J Tee

For Sports Relief, our Y4 children had the opportunity to take part in some Judo from Destination Judo in High Green. Judo is a dynamic sport that demands both physical prowess and great mental discipline. It involves techniques that allow you to lift and throw your opponents onto their backs. On the ground, it includes techniques that allow you to pin your opponent down to the ground and control them.  Well done to everyone who took part and had some sporty fun...

Y5 Boys Football League Competition

posted 28 Mar 2018, 10:13 by J Tee   [ updated 9 May 2018, 09:10 ]

This week, our Year 5 boys football team had a competition with Marlcliffe, Sacred heart, Malin Bridge and Nook Lane all attending. All the children were excited to be representing their school and to demonstrate team work and togetherness, which we had spoken about in detail leading up to the event. We gave it a real good go but we know we have work to do before the next school football competition.  Man of the match for the Blue team were Harry for his positive attitude and hard work and for the White team, Dainton for his leadership and teamwork. Well done everyone!

South Yorkshire Game 2018 - Gymnastics Team

posted 20 Mar 2018, 09:49 by J Tee

After the fantastic achievement of qualifying as Sheffield City Champions, Stocksbridge Y3/4 gymnastics team went to the English Institute of Sport today to compete against the best school teams from Barnsley, Doncaster, Sheffield and Rotherham. After a really good opening ceremony, we had to compete in a set floor routine and vault which requires strength, flexibility and control. Just to get to this level of competition has been amazing but to get a silver medal, and to finish overall 2nd place is testament to all their hard work. Well done to Alice, Rose, Olivia, Evie and Daisy and bring on next year! Go team Stocksbridge!!
