Sport hall athletics (boys)
A few days ago we went to the sports hall athletics at Brooksby Melton College. There were 11 schools, 7 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. We were in the afternoon and we came 3rd overall. The races were mainly running but there was the odd obstacle race, over and under race and some field events. We won most of our races. Overall everyone did very well. I think there was only 24 points in it, so it was very close and we just managed to sneak the afternoon win. It was a very fun day and a very competitive one at that.
My swimming gala
My friends and I from class 2, 3 and 4 all went to Melton swimming pool. I was feeling nervous about it, I was doing backstroke and front crawl. We all got changed into our swimming costumes and warmed up, I was swimming first then Amelia went and so on. I messed up so much I went before the whistle was blown! I had to do it all again and I got 4th, I will try harder next year.
Then I had to wait a while for my next race which was the relay with Amelia, Ollie and Oscar. Oscar did so well in the races and he is only year 3! Then at the end was the result….we came 7th. WE did really well. Then we got changed back into our school things and headed back to school for Dance. That day was so much fun and I would love to do it again next year.

On Tuesday the 6th of February 2018. Key stage2 competed in the vale cross country at hose. Every one bar 2 people competed and every one finished their race. We had some high places including a 1st, two 3rd’s, and 4th. Well done Stathern!!
On Friday 27th April, a squd of two girls and four boys went to do a challenging cycling event in the pouring rain! Our team was me, Daisy, Barney, Toby, William and Jack. This was a thrilling event. First up was the Italian pursuit. The team have to go in order 1 to 6, no. 1 does the least amount of laps and no. 6 the most. We did great and so did all the other teams. I think they showed amazing perseverance. Our time was 3 minutes 50 seconds. We then competed on the cross country course in a relay race one at a time. It was a big ring with lots of hard bends. We pictured this as a relay and took turns and came first!! We didn’t give up! One of the cyclists competing at the end looked so determined that we decided to run after her on the outside of the course and cheer her on. We don't know if this worked, but she went flying along the course!
All the people that entered did amazingly and thank you to Brooksby College for your facilities.
Watch out level 3, here we come!
At the recent level three girls football tournament the girls; Scarlett, Marcia, Hannah, Amelia, Lucy, Amy, Heather, Olivia, Daisy and Moya performed brilliantly against some very skilful and tough teams. They were extremely hard to score against yet Stathern score two awesome goals! It was a tough day out but Stathern held their own. The team are now training hard and are looking forward to the girl’s football league coming up, which we hope to win!
Written by Daisy (Chair of Sports Crew)
A massive congratulation to all pupils who have taken part in the skipping and hula hoop challenges that have been organised and lead by sports crew members this term.
We have had a large number of pupils taking part and the majority of pupils have beaten their original scores!
Marcia and Matilda are top of the leader board for skipping with scores of 98 and 95 skips in 30 seconds.
Marcia is also top of the leader board for hula hooping with a score of 52 seconds of non-stop hula!
A big thank you for sports crew for organising and keep trying to beat your score over the last two weeks of term everyone!
Cricket tournament (years 3-6)
On the 23rd of May, Stathern primary school sent out a team of 10 young cricketers. For lots of us it was our first time at a cricket tournament. We were reasonably successful coming 7th out of 11 teams. We won 3 games and lost 3 narrowly. Captain of the team was William and he was a great leader and helped us secure a 7th place finish which is really good considering we are not the best at cricket. Sam and Oscar made a really successful debut. We may have not won but we came away really positive which is what counts.
