On Tuesday Miss Beebee and Mr Szkrybieniec took 25 Yr 4/5/6 children to the Stroud and District Sportshall Athletics Finals.  There were 7 schools there altogether, including St Matt’s from the whole of the Stroud and Dursley District.  The main skills covered were running, jumping and throwing, with specialist events designed to be done inside a sports hall.Our children were a real credit to our school and behaved beautifully.  They showed fantastic team spirit and really supported each other.  Although it was a competition our children showed great sportsmanship and had great fun being there.The children had never taken part in any sports hall Athletics events before, and had not practiced once before going to the event because of a lack of time, so they did incredibly well to just pick it up and run with it!A HUGE Congratulations to all children who took part and thank you for being such a pleasure to take out of school!  WELL DONE!The Boys Results:Obstacle Relay – 5th – Jack, Ewan, Andy, Rhys.1 + 1 lap Relay – 4th – Jack and Fin.2 + 2 Lap Relay – 1st – Dylan and Charlie.6 Lap Paarlauf – 2nd – Dylan and Charlie.Over/ Under Relay – 4th – Ewan, Joe, Toby and Elias.4 x 1 Lap Relay – 6th – Joe, Toby, Elias and Rhys.Chest Push – 1st – Bailey, Harvey , Jacob.Speed Bounce – 5th – Ewan (40), Toby (35) and Charlie (41).Standing Long Jump – 3rd – Jack, Joe and Fin.Standing Triple Jump – 7th – Dylan, Charlie and Rhys.Vertical Jump – 7th – Jacob, Andy and Toby.Soft Javelin – 6th – Bailey, Harvey and Andy. The Girls Results:Obstacle Relay – 3rd – Eva, Daisie, Lara and Holly.1 + 1 lap Relay – 2nd – Eva and Daisie.2 + 2 Lap Relay – 6th – Ruby and Kyra.6 Lap Paarlauf – 6th – Ruby and Kyra.Over/ Under Relay – 3rd – Josie, Amelia, Lara and Holly.4 x 1 Lap Relay – 2nd – Josie, Grace, Kira and Amelia.Chest Push – 7th – Grace, Casey and Lily.Speed Bounce – 5th – Eva (38), Daisie (36) and Holly (34).Standing Long Jump – 2nd – Josie, Ruby and Holly.Standing Triple Jump – 7th – Josie, Kira and Ruby.Vertical Jump – 3rd – Amelia, Eva and Daisie.Soft Javelin – 6th – Grace, Casey and Lily. Mixed, Non-Scoring Events Results -Obstacle Relay – 6th – Casey, Bailey, Lily, Jacob.1 + 1 Lap Relay – 1st – Kira and Grace.1 + 1 Lap Relay – 4th – Fin and Jacob.Over/ Under Relay – 3rd – Grace, Kira, Ewan and JackTeachers Speed Bounce – 1st – Miss Beebee! Final Team Scores:7th – Kings Stanley – 158 points6th – Cam Everlands – 212 points5th – St Matthew’s – 226 points4th – Blue Coat – 244 points3rd – Leonard Stanley – 268 points2nd – Minchinhampton – 290 points1st – Nailsworth – 296 points
