Mrs Oakes

Sprinting into our final term of sport!


Mr Jackson will be introducing new

sporting clubs for before & afterschool. Keep an eye out on the school News Letter

and on the PE notice board for what clubs are available. 

We have a very busy final term ahead with sporting events, school games days and Sports Week, it's going to be fun!


Here is what has been happening with our Sports Teams...


The Golden Mile  -  Our children are amazing!

This was the feeling we got as we watched over 40 pupils run around a

very muddy Leftwich High School field.  Our children were split into 3 age

groups and were given the challenge of running a specified Cross Country

distance.  It had rained heavily all weekend, making the course a little

muddy! But this didn't dampen their enthusiasm as they raced their way

around the course with muddy legs and huge smiles on their faces. 

We had amazing performances from everyone who took part

and congratulations to the following children for coming in the top 3 of

their group...

Thomas Kinder,  Cian Nancollis,  George Grattage,  Stanley Scott


Sports Hall Athletics FINAL

We took a large team of 20 children to the Cluster Final held at UCAN.  

Schools from all over Vale Royal ran, jumped and threw their way to gain valuable points for their teams.  Our team were amazing and worked really hard with each other, especially in the relay events where the changeover is the key to success.  We had been working on this element in PE as it can be tricky, especially when the adrenalin is pumping, but our teams didn’t let it phase them and performed their changeovers perfectly.

Our team came a very credible 5th place in a tough field of athletes and we couldn’t have been more proud of them.


5-6 Sports Hall Athletics  -  A new year saw 16 children represent the school at

Leftwich High.  The children took part in field events and track events pushing, themselves to

achieve good times and measurements to help their team through to win 1st Place and ticket

to the final! Well done team to everyone involved.


5-6 Quick Stix Hockey - A cold drizzly evening and 2 teams of children having fun with

hockey sticks!  A tough final meant that the A team had to dig deep, but they showed that

teamwork really is the key to success and played the ball between themselves, working

towards the goal each time resulting in them winning the tournament.


3-4 Mixed Football FINAL - The dark evenings of November saw our team play in the

final at Hartford High with 12 other teams from Vale Royal. The competition was strong but

our boys fought through until the end and came away with a very well deserved 3rd place.

They were also awarded the Spirit of the Games certificate for Sportsmanship, Well done

boys, we are very proud of you all.


3-4 Girls Football  -  Another chilly afternoon out with a small team of girls and a

football.  Some of our girls had never played team football before but this didn't stop them

getting involved and helping their team to victory.  The girls won all bar 1 of their matches with

the other being drawn.  They all came home with huge smiles on their faces, a Winners medal

and the excitement for the final to come.  Well done girls, you were fantastic!


2K Fun Run  -  We took 36 children to a new event for Vale Royal, a 2K fun run around

the fields of Moss Farm.  All of the children wore pink t-shirts and were set off in waves, it

really was a sea of pink, happy faces as over 1300 children ran around the course. 



5-6 High 5 Netball  -  The netball courts were again swamped with Davenham

children, when we took 3 teams to the cluster event. Some very enthusiastic play was shown

and a lot of children experienced competitive netball for the first time.  Our A team fought their

way through to the final where they were beaten by a strong Leftwich Team.  Well done to

everyone who played.


5-6 Tag Rugby  -  2 teams of children were welcomed by Northwich Rugby club for a fun

afternoon playing & learning about Tag Rugby.  An really enjoyable event with lots of new

skills achieved.

Year 3/4 Mixed Football   -  Mr Jackson & Mrs Oakes took a team of very enthusiastic football

players over to Winsford Academy to compete against other schools in a football tournament.  The

tournament was played in 3 leagues with the top 2 teams from each league winning a place in the

final to be held at Hartford High in November.  WE ARE THROUGH TO THE FINAL! Amazing playing,

accurate passes and great teamwork secured us a place in the final.  Well done Team


Year 5/6 Mixed Football A Davenham Primary school army of 30 children swamped the pitches at Leftwich High and played their football boots off!  We had 3 teams representing the

school in a very tough tournament.  Mr Jackson said that he was very impressed with the teamwork

shown from all of our children. They worked together on the pitch and were shouting encouragement

from the side lines when they weren’t playing.  The A team won their group and got through to the

final, where they played a very tough game against Kingsmead. They left the pitch a very credible 2nd

but were definitely winners in our eyes with the amount of effort they put into their play.  Well done

to everyone who took part and thank you to the family of supporters who were enthusiastic



Year 5/6 Girls Football   What a great start to this year’s sporting events!  Our year 5/6 Girls

took on the challenge of being the first sporting team to represent the school this new term, and

what a fantastic job they made.  They achieved a brilliant 2nd place in the tournament and were very

enthusiastic, wanting to play again in the future.  Well done to everyone!
