Sporting Competitions

Badminton Success

 

This Wednesday, Y4, Y5 and Y6 went to a Badminton tournament at Harrogate Racquets Club. We played against two schools: Rossett Acre and Pannal who were very good teams. But we like a challenge so we went in with a positive attitude and took it in our stride. What a fantastic afternoon! Everyone tried their very best. It was tense; we were waiting for the scores and… WE WON!

Thank you to Mrs Adrian and Mrs King for helping out with the tournament. We all enjoyed it very much.

Triathlon Stars!

Conor Lister, Iona Melville, Leila Barclay and Georgia Murray all competed in the Ripon Junior triathlon on Sunday 1st July. This involved 150m open water swim (in a lake), 2k cycle and then 1.2k run. As it was so warm, they didn’t have to wear wetsuits - all very brave to get in that water. For some of them, it was their first open water triathlon and they had to overcome some nerve to do it. They were all amazing and did the Harrogate Junior triathlon club proud! Well done! Mrs Murray

Year 5 and 6 Rounders Tournament

On Monday 25th June, 12 pupils who attend Rounders Club on Friday afternoons, took part in a tournament at Rossett Sports Centre against twelve other schools. It was a very hot day meaning we had to drink lots of water. We were split into pools of three, in our pool were: Rossett Acre and Follifoot. We played 4 matches and won two of them, both of them against Rossett Acre. In our pool we came second, Follifoot winning. Thank you to Mr McIntyre for taking us. We would recommend that any future Year 5 and 6’s take part.

Year 3/4 Tri-Golf Tournament

Y3/4 – Tri Golf Tournament

Students were selected to represent the school at the Harrogate and Craven Tri-Golf tournament, there was great enthusiasm, effort and resilience shown by the students as half of the team had never played golf before. Overall, the team came sixth out of ten schools and were all happy in what they achieved. Mr Nixon and myself couldn’t believe how quickly they had improved their skill over the tournament and were a real credit to the school. Mr McIntyre

Year 5/6 Cricket Tournament

Year 5 and 6 cricket team took part in the Harrogate and District cricket tournament, it was a great day for the team as they only lost one fixture throughout the day and came second in their group. Overall, they were placed 4th within the tournament narrowly missing out on qualifying for the finals. Player of the tournament was Ollie Holdsworth he showed an attacking flair with the bat and had control on his bowling mixing the bowling up with spin and pace bowling. Well done boys it was a fantastic day and a great team effort.  Mr McIntyre

Year 5/6 Tag Rugby Tournament

On Thursday 29th March 2018, 10 children from Year 5 and 6 travelled to Harrogate Rugby Club to take part in a Tag Rugby Competition. We played eight teams and went undefeated.

Year 3/4 Gymnastics Final

On Thursday the 22nd of February we went to Harrogate high for the gym finals. When we got there we went to floor warm up. On floor warm up we practiced very hard on the routine, and our smiles. After working very hard we went to compete in floor. We thought we were going in a bad direction until the judge smiled at us. After doing an incredible floor routine we headed to vault and had our two practices. We all remembered to do a tuck jump instead of a summer jump. Yeh we did great in vault! Body management was are strongest event but our scariest event there. We came the fifth best in North Yorkshire. By Ruby, Iona and Yasmin

Harrogate U9s cricket success

A huge well done to Harrogate U9’s Cricket team, whose indoor team recently topped the league table by winning all seven of their games. Oatland Year 4s, Ted Crossland, Joseph Kell, Rafi Leslie, Joe Kinnear and Ben Summerson all play for the U9s.

The squad, which practices at Ashville Sports Centre, were presented with their medals by Stowe Family Law CEO Charles Hartwell, at a ceremony attended by parents.

Their final game is a play-off against the team in second place, Studley Royal. We wish the team the very best of luck!

Gymnastics Success!

We went to a Y3-4 gym competition at 3:15pm on Thursday 1st February at Rossett sport centre. The schools competing were Pannal, Rossett Acre, St. Peters and us. Our team consisted of Iona, Yasmin, Ruby, India and Annabel. All of us were very nervous but excited at the same time. We were the first contestants there, so we got the best seats. Our first event was floor and we did it very well. Some of us were a little hesitant at first but we got the hang of it in the end. We also forgot to smile at times, because we were so serious about winning! Then we headed towards vault. We all managed to do the high vault but the other team didn’t. Body management was our strongest event but we also liked it because it had skipping and we all like skipping! After that we were very tired, so we all got our snacks and drinks out and had a little rest. This is the time we had all been waiting for… The top two got into the finals and WE CAME FIRST!

Five girls, year 3/4’s, entered into the Harrogate and Craven Gymnastics and came out as winners. It was an incredibly tight competition, with Oatlands winning by 0.9 of a point. The Oatlands girls performed a floor routine, body management and vaulting: they showed control, athleticism and determination, to remember their routines and perform them at such a high standard. The girls will be back to hard work as they have progressed onto Harrogate Finals on Thursday 22nd February. Well done girls on such a great achievement!
