Silver medallists, which is an awesome achievement!

On Thursday 23rd March we took our Year 5 & 6 Netball team to Shenley Brook End to take part in the finals. As they did in the first round, the children worked really hard and there was some great play in difficult windy conditions! Overall we came 6th out of nearly 50 schools that took part over the course of the competition which is a fantastic achievement! Well done to everyone involved!

Mar 17 - RUGBY.  We went to Bletchley Rugby Club last Friday to compete in the Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby Tournament. We had two teams, one in the shield and one in the cup. Both teams play excellently and had some really good games of rugby. Our team in the cup ended up winning every game they played and so are going through to the County Championship! I want to say well done to both teams and a thank you to all the parents that came down to watch. A special thank you to Mollie, Euan, Josh and Jasmine for filling in at the very last minute!

Mar 17 - DODGEBALL FINALS.  Eight Year 5 and Year 6 pupils took part in the Dodgeball finals at Shenley Brook End School this week. The tournament was divided up into two groups with the top two from each group going through to the semi-final. The format was based on playing each team 3 times in a 2 minute game. Team Oxley managed to finish second in the group, so therefore they played the top team in the other group in the semi-finals. Unfortunately the team lost in the semi-finals to Bradwell Village, who went on to win the competition. Well done Bradwell Village School!   We then played in the 3rd and 4th place play off to hopefully receive the bronze medal. The team played Bushfield School and Team Oxley Managed to win the game by 2 points to receive the bronze medal. Well done Oxley Park!

Dec 16 - Mr Thurston took the basketball team to the local finals at Stantonbury Leisure centre, this was a competition for teams who won their local games. The standard was high with many of players on show who play for local Basketball teams, our boys and girls worked really well as a team but unfortunately were not making the baskets when needed. All games were close and with only a few points making the difference we finished in a respectable 6th place. These competitions involve over 30 schools across Milton Keynes so once again we showed how well our sporting teams are doing. Well done.
