Swimming Gala 2019

posted 4 Jun 2019, 09:14 by J Tee

This week at Ponds Forge International Pool, 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’s endurance but every team member gave 100% for their school and gave it a real good go. We ended up placing 7th overall out of 9 schools and will maintain our place in the top league for 2020. Well done team Stocksbridge!




Y6 Rounders

The Y6 rounders team have trained every Thursday evening in preparation for the annual rounders competition at Davy's Sports Ground on Friday 24th May. There were 16 schools who entered the competition, who were split into 4 leagues in the morning. Stocksbridge won all of their games in their league to progress through to the 'winners league' in the afternoon. During these games, Stocksbridge demonstrated some amazing examples of sportsmanship, fantastic batting skills and tactical awareness. The team won their first two games and had to beat Phillimore in their final game to come home with 1st place....and we did it! Well done to all children involved, you were a credit to the school and should be extremely proud of yourselves for your hard work in both training and the competition!


Summer Athletics 2019

posted 23 May 2019, 08:50 by J Tee

This week, our Y5 and Y6 athletics teams were taking part in the annual Sheffield City Competition at Woodburn Road Stadium. Children were selected based upon their sprint and long distance running times along with children with the longest throw and jump. Stocksbridge has always had an abundance of talent when it comes to athletics and although a few of our top runners did not take part, we were still very competitive in every event and particularly dominated the sprint races and the throw. 

With fantastic efforts from everyone, we would like to congratulate the following children who progressed through to the Sheffield City Finals on Thursday 20th June.

J.Whiting (80m Sprint) - 11.7 seconds
J.Whiting (Jump) - 4.14 metres
E.Barlow (Throw) - 21.5 metres
E. Aldous (Throw) - 27.6 metres
O.Parsons (80m Sprint) - 12.4 seconds
R.Gilder (600m) - 2.20 mins
L.Gregory (Throw) - 28.35 metres
L.Bowskill (80m Sprint) - 12.3 seconds

Y5 Basketball City Final

posted 15 May 2019, 01:41 by J Tee

This Y5 basketball team have had 3 full terms of practice in our after school club so we went into the competition full of confidence.  Eight of the top schools in Sheffield were attending all of whom had already qualified from their partnership finals. The standard was extremely high which is fantastic to see and really gave team Stocky a challenge. We did not make the final but the team grew in confidence as the competition unfolded saving the best until last with a dramatic 7-6 win over Marcliffe and an amazing last second winner from Ella to give us the victory. We finished on a real high with the player of the competition for me being Lily for her energetic play and enthusiasm. Well don team!




Orienteering at SJS

posted 7 May 2019, 07:13 by J Tee   [ updated 7 May 2019, 07:47 ]

With two more Saturday Series runs to go, SJS is sitting in 14th place out of 52 schools that have taken part to date. Given there are only the two children from SJS taking part so far they are doing really well- each participant earns points towards the total so a couple of extra children could move SJS right up the board. Some schools have quite a few runners bumping up their scores.  In terms of individual results, Flynn is overall 6th/ 19 in the B5 category and Thea 7th/  21 in G5 category so they are trying really hard every month and getting some great results.  I have attached the SYO flyer to be shared to try and attract some extra children along to the final couple of events- you don’t even need to run- walking/jogging around shadowed by an adult is fine so no one needs to feel they can’t take part if not a “runner” and plenty of help is offered by the club to beginners. The white courses for Y3-5 is about 1k long on average and yellow for Y6’s up to around 1.5k so not too far.

 

 The next event is Sat 8th June at Parkwood Springs. 12.30-3pm.

Healthy Body and Minds Project 2019

posted 26 Apr 2019, 01:44 by J Tee

Many of the healthy body and mind behaviours supplement the school curriculum, and incorporate different attributes that bolster the learning potential of children in core subjects and particularly as we take part in mock SATS week. From our research we know that increases in physical activity during the school day help children to focus and cope with the anxieties that they may face during their SATS exams. The school are working hard to support our Y6 children with this by mixing exams with fun physical activity sessions to allow them to be in the best shape, both physically and mentally to do the best they can do.

In addition to our healthy breakfast during SATS week, we will have 'Brain Gym' in the hall for all children to take part in to boost that brain power.





Year 5 Hotshots Basketball Competition

posted 26 Mar 2019, 10:31 by J Tee

The local cluster year 5 basketball competition took place this week down at Stocksbridge High School with the opportunity to qualify for the Partnership finals. The team had an opportunity to take part in some mini skills sessions led by the Y10 Sports Leader to get ready for the main event against Deepcar.  Both the boys and girls teams demonstrated a maturity in their play, attacking with fast passing and movement to create lots of opportunities to score. We know we still have to work on our shooting and defence but both teams won their respective games to progress to the finals. Extremely pleased with the progress the team have made from last year and we look forward to seeing how they shape up against some of the Cities strongest basketball schools in the next round. Thank you to all our amazing parents for your support. 



ARE WE THE FITTEST PRIMARY SCHOOL?

posted 18 Mar 2019, 04:02 by J Tee   [ updated 20 May 2019, 04:05 ]

Jordan from Xcite Sport and Fitness was in school this week to see if we are the fittest Primary School in South Yorkshire. We choose Y5 children to be the sample group and represent the school in this physically demanding challenge. The session had some exiting games to get the children in the mood and get their bodies ready for the competition. The event consisted of body exercises such as burpees, speed bounce, sit ups etc. with a 100 meter sprint in between each set of exercises. This really tests the cardio vascular system and you could see the muscle burn on the children's faces. As a group, we were our traditionally competitive selves with some outstanding individual times notably Louie and Ava's. Well done to everyone who took part and you really gave everything for the cause.

We are thrilled to announce the results of the 2018/19 Fittest Primary School Competition.
Stocksbridge finished in 4th position out of the 42 classes who entered, with a time of 3 mins 19 secs.
Thank you once again for allowing us to visit and I hope the children really enjoyed being involved - they should be proud of their efforts. 



Cross Country Race 8 - Graves Park

posted 15 Mar 2019, 04:56 by J Tee

Full credit to the cross country team and their amazingly supportive parents for turning out in numbers again at Race 8 of the season. Graves Park is always looked upon at the finals where all the top schools and club runners compete for the chance to go to the South Yorkshire Champs. The hills are steep and the distances are increased to really challenge the athletes. Well done to every child that has taken part in any of the 8 races on some very cold Saturday mornings and we look forward to starting it all over again in the winter of the next school year. A massive thank you from me for all our parent who took time out of their Weekend to support our team. Amazing effort!
