Sporting Achievements 

Look at all our recent achievements!

  • Year 3 children went to Wodson Park, Ware. They took part in an activity afternoon which involved Orienteering, ABC (agility, balance coordination) and Game Skills. All children enjoyed the afternoon. "I loved the reaction ball game, as we never knew where it would go" Jack
  • We attended a Tag Rugby festival and 22 year 6 pupils braved the rain and wind. Although we only had 3 weeks training the children proved how resilient they are with scoring tries in every match. "We went to a Tag Rugby festival at Hertford Rugby Club. When we arrived there were so many other schools. I had so much fun and hope I can do it again, it was the best experience ever!" Lucia.
  • During Well being week the children had the chance to take part in a different sport, Quidditch. All the children from Reception to year 6 learnt how to avoid the 'Bludger,' become a 'Seeker' and score goals. There was even a 'Golden Snitch' that they chased until they caught it! "It was great afternoon and I got to be a seeker, and scored a goal," George
  • Year 4 children attended a Development morning at Wodson Park, Ware. There they learnt orienteering and had the chance to run on the running track. They also took part in a session that involved ability, balance and coordination (ABC)." Today we went to Wodson park, we did lots of different activities. We had lots of fun, there was balls and lots of stuff. And my favourite bit was, everything!" Ollie
  • Our football team attended a tournament at Stevenage Football Club. They played 4 games and won 3, drew the 4th. The team won the competition by 1 point which means they now represent Stevenage F/C at the next tournament. "I can't believe that we won," James
  • "On Monday me, Charlie B, Max K, Harry, Dylan, Dexter, Charlie C, Charlie MH and Austin went to a Sportshall competition. We took part in races such as over and under (hurdle and tunnel) and obstacle. The relays were 2 x 2 and 1x 1. We also did the long jump, triple jump, speed bounce and chest push. We won the boys competition and came 5th in the mixed. There were 6 schools in the competition" by James Powell

  • Our year 6 class learnt that they had won the National Cross Curricular competition. They needed to find numbers following instructions through points of the compass. This was timed and the fastest pair was entered in the competition.  
  • The school entered the HWSSP cross country at Hertford Rugby club with a year 6 boys and girls team. The distance was a mile around the Rugby pitch's. The boys raced first and coming down the home straight there were 8 runners fighting for the three medals. Max K came 3rd and James 4th. The team came 4th out of 9. The girls raced next and Corinne was first home with all the team finishing and the team coming 7th out of 9. Well done to all the runners.
  • Year 4 went to Wodson Park to attend a Rapid Fire competition. Rapid Fire is a form of cricket for the younger children. All the children took part and we were awarded with 4th, 5th and 7th. Because we were the highest placed medium school we progressed to the Herts School Games County Final. "There were some good teams but we tried our hardest" Ewen.
  • The year 4 team that qualified for the county finals travelled to Hertfordshire University. We played against 6 other teams from across the county. The games were fast and furious and the children did not have much time to rest. They kept going right to the end and were awarded with joint 3rd. Well done to all 8 of them.

  • The children in year 2 attended a 'development afternoon' at Wodson Park. They had the chance to run on the Athletics track as well as cricket, obstacle course and orienteering.

    "I loved running round the track. It felt like I was in the Olympics!" Edward. "It was such a fun afternoon. We did a lot of games. I don’t have a favourite because they were all so good". Martha.

  • The Netball club travelled to Woolenwick school to compete in a friendly match. As the whole team went there were a lot of substitutions and everyone had at least two quarters of play. It was an enjoyable game and Watton came out on top 9-8.
