On Wednesday the 13th of July the year two children all went to Beauchamps field to take part in competitive running. Bradley was the fastest boy and Lia the fastest girl. We then had a relay race and class 6 won.
On Tuesday the 10th of July the Year ones attended a Teddy Bear Festival organised by Mrs Ford from the school sports partnership. The event should have been at Beauchamps field but adverse weather meant this was not possible. Instead Crays Hill joined our children in the hall. The children perfected a variety of skills with their Teddy Bears joining them.
As part of our PE and in a bid to maintain and improve the school’s fitness levels on Monday the 10th of July the whole school walked a mile. To achieve this we did 6 laps of a circuit which included the Junior School playground, our joint field and the Infant School playground. The Junior School Sports Leaders stamped the children’s cards.
On Tuesday the 4th of July eleven children attended football and fun games at Wickford Infant school. Clive from Wickford Football club led the session with Mrs Ford from School Sports Partnership. After a quick warm up the children played a grab the balls game, they then played two games, one on a pitch with four goals. The children were amazingly behaved. Thank you once again to the parents who transported the children to this event and Mrs O’Brien who accompanied us as a volunteer.
On Tuesday 27th June 85 children from Oakfield, Hilltop Infants, Grange, Abacus and North Crescent and Crays Hill enjoyed an afternoon of running organised by Zoe Ford, Wickford School Sport Coordinator.

The festival started with a fun warm up and stretch with the Year 6 Oakfield leaders. The children completed their races and received a big cheer from their friends and family as they crossed the finish line!

On Tuesday the 23rd of May Class 4 Daisy, Ben, Isabella, Mia, Isacc, Maisie, and Grace joined Mrs Marsh at Grange Primary School for a session to learn and play 3 Ts Cricket. Grange, Crays Hill and Abacus schools also attended.
After a quick warm up the children learnt some of the skills needed for 3 Ts Cricket. They participated in a variety of activities to improve retrieving, throwing, catching and bating. Finally they played a game with children from Crays Hill which we won. Ben scored two sixes and a two by accurately hitting the ball. Our total score was 111.
On Tuesday the 28th of March Alice, Scarlett, Evie, Elissia, George and Lily- Mai represented our school at the William De Ferrers School Sports Partnership Key Step Gymnastic competition. All schools across the Partnership were invited to attend but only four Infant schools took up the challenge Sunnymede, Downham, St Peter’s and Hilltop Infant School.
The children had to perform two vaults independently and then worked together to present a short synchronised gymnastic routine including set elements. They were amazing! The judges scrutinised every part of the performance and awarded them second place.
Thank you so much to the parents who transported their children to this event.
On Thursday the 30th of March 9 girls attended A football tournament at Waterside Leisure Centre. Roxanne, Angel, Holly, Sophie, Casey, Emily, Isabella, Isabelle and Amelia were split into teams with children from other schools. The children then played mini games against the other teams.

The children had amazing stamina and played brilliantly.
