On Tuesday afternoon we took 4 teams across to Edmondscote for the School Games Super Six Athletics event. This unique team event means each individual must compete in 1 track event (100,200 or 800) and 1 field event (Long jump, Shot or javelin) – from this the winning team will go forward to the level 3 School Games finals later in July.
The team results are yet to be published, but Southam had some fantastic results so we have our fingers crossed.
We had convincing wins for Charlie (7), Isabel M (7) and Maddie (8) in the 100m. Similarly proving strong in the 800m with wins for Jonathon (8) and Madeleine (8) and second places for Holly (7) and Abi (8).
Performance of the day went to Max (8) for the best sporting gesture – as he assisted a student from Aylesford along for 400m of the 800m to ensure the boy finished the race.
Well done everyone some fantastic performances.
Mrs Turton and Mr MacGibbon
Year 7 and 8 girls and year 8 boys all qualify for the Level 3 School Games Competition in July.
Such a brilliant achievement for the the year 8 Rounders Team who beat Campion by half a rounder in their first match of the season on Wednesday 22nd May 2019.
In the 1st innings Southam batted well achieving 5 and half rounders. Campion also managed to achieve 5 rounders despite Southam doing their best to keep the score tight. In the second innings Southam batted even better achieving 9 rounders. Campion got off to a slow start with their batting; in the final few balls of the game Southam started to panic and seemed to lose their way in the field. This resulted in Campion getting some excellent rounders in the final stages in the match slowly bringing the score line close again. Southam remained resilient and managed to win the game overall 14 and half rounders to 14. Sophie Constable was deservedly awarded ‘Player of the match’ due to her epic batting.
Thank you to Marie Green who captained the team. Finally a huge well done to everyone who played, I am really looking forward to coaching you this season.
News from Lab 8 Animal Care Group: An exciting moment this week on Tuesday lunch time when speedy, our resident female corn snake, confirmed the suspicions of Oliver Brown, Dan Beatton and Freddy Lazell by laying an impressive 22 eggs in front of our very eyes. She is now recovering and should be eating again in a week or two. The eggs are now in an incubator, and at the moment it looks like 21 of them could hatch. The due date for hatching is approximately July 13th, we’ll keep you informed.
