Y6 Boys Football Fixture against Marlcliffe

posted by J Tee   [ updated ]

On Monday 20th November both our Y6 Football teams were in action against Marlcliffe. Stocksbridge White played first giving another epic performance against a good Marlcliffe team. They drew 1-1 with an amazing team goal finally finished off with a great strike by Oliver D. Stocksbridge Blue started well in their game going 3 goals in the lead but right at the last lost concentration and gave away 2 goals. It was a nervous last few minutes but we managed to hold out for a 3 - 2 victory. Stocksbridge Blue will progress through to the Champions league finals later in the school year. Well done everyone involved!



Centre of Excellence Training

posted by T Foster

Now Stocksbridge Junior School is a Centre of Excellence for PE, Mrs Foster and Mr Tee led a CPD training event for teachers from all over Yorkshire on Monday 13th November. The training was designed to help classroom teachers improve their knowledge and understanding of teaching PE and develop creativity in the PE curriculum. This involved a presentation and a practical workshop, specifically focusing on outdoor and adventurous activities (OAA). All staff who attended found the training event extremely useful and rewarding. A big thank you to Evie Wilkinson and Daniel Fawcett in Y4 who helped demonstrate stretches and practical activities to the attendees. 

Cross Country Race 3 @ Bradfield

posted 12 Nov 2017, 10:13 by J Tee

Race 3 of the cross country season took place this weekend at Bradfield Secondary School. It was unusually mild for this time of year but the course as always, was muddy and challenging. It is one of the longest races of the year which requires lots of stamina and muscular endurance. Again, Stocksbridge had a fantastic number of children attending with some more first time runners. Our year 4 girl’s team of Grace (42nd), Rose (26th) and Alice (20th) who all ran extremely well, had a new member this week. Lexie (Y3!) who has demonstrated real talent in athletics lessons during PE finished in an amazing 19th place out of 130 Y4’s. Our regular runners such as Flynn (44th), Emma (77th), Alfie (65th) to name a few, are all making really good improvements in their individual places. However, it has been a real team effort with every member of the Stocksbridge cross country team making valuable contribution to our overall score and engaging in a healthy and active morning of sport. Well done team Stocksbrdge!

The Y4 hotshots basketball team took part in the Stocksbridge cluster competition this week at Stocksbridge High School. The team took part in some skill drills with the Y10 sports leaders and then played some mixed games. It was an extremely enjoyable evening and the team have progressed through to the next round of the competition. Well done team Stocksbridge! 



Y6 Rowing

The Y6 indoor rowing team went to the Links Headquarters on Thursday 26th October to compete against 5 other schools in Sheffield. There were girls/boys individual races and mixed team relay races to compete in and all races were shown on a big screen in front of the rowers. All children participated to a excellent standard and really pushed themselves when there was close competition. We are pleased to say that we came first in both the girls/boys individual races and also the mixed team races! We are very proud of the children who participated and for some of them this was their first sporting competition ever. Well done team Stocksbridge!

Y4 Handball Competition

The year 4 handball team were at the High School this week for the Links School Sports Partnership competition. This is a great event that is organised and ran by Nikki Swift (Links Coordinator) and the Y10 sports leaders and one that we look forward to each year. The team have been practicing every Monday lunch to prepare for the event and they really demonstrated how much they have developed their skills and game play. Unfortunately, Deepcar and St. Annes had to cancel on the day however, we took part in skills circuits and games with the highlight of the evening being us beating the Y10 sports leaders! Well done team Stocksbridge and thank you for all the parental support.




Boys Football

After reluctantly cancelling the Y6 boys football fixture due to the bad weather, both Stocksbridge Junior School teams were in action this week playing against Nook Lane (2 teams) and Oughtibridge. Both teams (Whites and Blues) who played with great enthusiasm and energy had great success playing an on-the-floor passing style when attacking and a high pressure effort when defending. Stocksbridge Blues came out on top with Stocksbridge Whites in 3rd position beating Nook Lane and producing a fantastic draw against a very strong Oughtibridge team in the last game. Man of the match for Blues were Jack Holford for his skilful dribbling and crossing and for the Whites, Alex Appleby, who played in lots of positions including goal keeping. But it was a real team effort by all and a very successful evening for team Stocksbridge…Well done lads!

Girls Football

The Y5/6 Girls Football Team took part in their league tournament on Tuesday 17th October. There were 6 teams involved in the tournament, which was a fantastic turn out. All schools played each other in a round robin style competition. The girls played amazingly well and showed excellent teamwork and determination. They won all of their matches apart from one, which they drew 1-1. I am proud to say that we won the tournament overall with a total of 13 points, with Shooters Grove coming second place with 9 points. Player of the tournament was Eve Bamford. Also a big thank you to all the family members who came to support our girls! 


Cross Country Race 2 @ Parkwood Springs

posted 16 Oct 2017, 08:58 by J Tee

Race 2 of the cross country season is always a real tough test for the children. It has some real tough terrain and lots of hills for them to contend with but it is always one of the most popular races of the year. Again, SJS had a fantastic take up of children with some more first timers. Another consistent performance from Grace C (55th again!) and Ruby D with newbies Mason T and Jack G both performing well. Nice to see Aaron E and Harry A working hard in their first race of the season and again an outstanding effort by Alice C (19th out of 160 children). Our next race will be on Saturday 11th November at Bradfield Secondary School. 



Cross Country Race 1 @ Norfolk Park

posted 16 Oct 2017, 08:21 by J Tee   [ updated 16 Oct 2017, 08:25 ]

Race 1 of the new cross country season brought a new influx of talented long distance runners from Stocksbridge Junior School. Norfolk Park was the venue on a warm and sunny Saturday morning. We had our record number of athletes which is really pleasing to see and everyone gave 100% for their school. A truly fantastic effort by all and thank you so much for all the adults who came to support our runners. An amazing effort by Alice C (15th) and Rose G (23rd) with another four children in the top 50 and 6 more in the top 100, with each race seeing more than 150 children finish. Well done everyone, with the next race at Parkwood Springs.
