Out of School Activities and Competitions

Tennis

 

On Tuesday 14th May eight children in Year 4 Willow represented our school in a Tennis tournament.

 

For most of the children it was their first time playing the sport.  All of the children played extremely well and encouraged each other throughout the games played.  Unfortunately we missed out on the semi-finals by 1 point.

 

Well done, you did our school and yourselves proud!

Inclusive Festival

 

On Tuesday 5th March 2019 children from year 4 and 5 took part in an Inclusive Festival at Blessed Robert Sutton School. The children competed in 4 different sports: boccia, goalball, new age kurling and seated volleyball.

 

We had two fantastic teams which competed extremely well! Team A won a bronze medal and team B finished in 5th place. What an achievement for our sport stars.  Well Done!

Indoor Canoeing

 

On Thursday 14th February, six Year 4 pupils attended an Indoor Canoeing Festival at Blessed Robert Sutton School.  Three boys and three girls took part in a series of individual and group competitions where they had to row a set distance in the quickest time possible.  After some hard work and practise on the rowing machine, the children put up some good competition. Out of the eight teams that competed, the children won second place and each received a silver medal for their efforts. The children had lots of fun learning a new sport and meeting pupils from other schools. They also showed great teamwork and sportsmanship.  Well done and congratulations to the team!

 

A special well done to Sami who received a gold medal for being the fastest boy, Sulayman who received a silver medal for being the second fastest boy and Aamna who received a silver medal for being the second fastest girl.

Dodgeball Festival

 

On Thursday 31st January Victoria Community School took part in the Dodgeball Festival at Robert Sutton School.

We took 2 teams with us and there were lots of other teams there from various Staffordshire Schools.  All the children worked extremely hard and had great fun!

Sports Festival - Meadowside

 

We visited Meadowside Sports Centre to take part in a Sports Festival with children from different schools. We were put into groups and took part in exciting activities, such as dance, curling and parachute games. It was a great morning and we were all very tired at the end of it!

Archery Festival

 

On Thursday 6th December Victoria Community School took part in the Archery Festival at Robert Sutton School.

Two teams represented our school and for some of the children it was their first experience of Archery.  All the children worked extremely hard and had great fun!

Boccia Festival

 

On Tuesday 13th November Victoria Community School took part in the Boccia Festival at Robert Sutton School. Boccia is a sport that is played by sitting on a bench. Children must take it in turns to roll their ball and try and get their ball closest to the white ball that has already been rolled.

 

We took 3 teams with us and there were 12 other teams there from various Staffordshire Schools. Victoria Community School were absolutely amazing! At the end we were told that two of our teams had made it to the semi-finals and then they went one step better and both teams won their games and made it to the finals! This meant that the final was Victoria A team playing Victoria B team.

 

It was very close, but Victoria B team won the competition and Victoria A team came second! Victoria C team also played well and we were told that they were very close to making the semi-finals too!

 

All children were extremely well behaved and an absolute pleasure to take!

 

B Team Winners- Velizar (Y3), Zainab (Y6), Sughrah (Y6) and Sahil (Y5).

A Team Runners up- Saif (Y6), Hadi (Y3), Maria (Y6) and Aaminah (Y3)

C Team players- Aaisha (Y3), Ismaeel (Y4), Shokria (Y5) and Hussain (Y4)

 

Well done to all children in the Victoria Boccia Teams!

Football Festival - Marstons

 

On Thursday 18th October nine boys were chosen to represent our school in a football festival at Marston’s.  Our first match was against Richard Wakefield which ended 0-0.  Our second match was against William Shrewsbury B also finishing 0-0 and finally we played Oldfields A.  Unfortunately we lost this match 1-0 which led to us being knocked out of the festival.

 

We all had a great evening and enjoyed the opportunity of playing football.
