Learning with Confidence Together
Stanley children and staff have proved themselves to be true sporting stars recently. Here are reports on just what some of our “stars” achieved:
The KS1 Gymnastics team took part in a Borough fun competition at St James's school before half term and the children performed brilliantly! Well done Felix CH – Chestnut, Ines V – Chestnut, Bella B – Maple, Daisy W – Sycamore, Lucas B – Oak and Lilah B Birch.
Stanley’s Tag Rugby team made it through to the final of the Borough tournament. After qualifying for the finals before half term the team beat Vineyard 5-1 in the semi-final but unfortunately lost in extra time in the final 7-6. Well done Milly V 5B, Sacha G 6S, Olivia MM 5M, Rory W 6P, Laurence 6S, Mason O 6P, Eliza W 6LT, Luke B 6P, Dexter B 5L and Jack V 5W.
The Mixed Years 5&6 football team performed very well in the Borough tournament qualifying for the quarter finals where we faced the boys’ borough champions - we eventually lost 0-3 but played really well. Coach Andy reported that it was “a brilliant effort from the squad!” – great work from Grace G 6P, Elizabeth B 6, Olivia MM 5M, Harry S 5B, Zane S 5M, Jack V 5V and Alper D 5M.
The Swimming Squad put in a fantastic performance at the Borough finals and Dillon W (6S) is deserving of a special mention as Borough Champion in backstroke and breaststroke.
Emma Marsh (Reception Teacher) and Shelley Brown (Reception Teaching Assistant) both completed the London Marathon in testing conditions as it was the hottest on record very well done to both of them. They were also raising money for charities - MIND (Emma) and Macmillan Cancer Support (Shelley - you can still donate if you would like to here are the links:
