On Saturday  the children arrived at The MK Bowl bright and early for their gentle warm-up with Mrs Newman.  Once completed, the green and gold vests were donned and the race became real!

 

Mr Woodham was our runner, who escorted the excited groups to their designated pens, (starting points) and on the whistle, they sped off.  The 1000m or 1500m course involved extremely steep hills to negotiate in very slippery conditions.

 

Isla F (HB12) ran incredibly fast and came in 1st place in the junior girls race, followed by Rebecca C (HB12) in 8th place.  There were 141 runners in this race and overall Loughton School came in 4th place.  Harry M (HB12) came 8th in the junior boys race of 132 runners.

 

Isla will be invited to represent Milton Keynes in the Cross Country Finals in Leicester in March and both Rebecca and Harry will be reserves.

In the senior races, both girls and boys ran really well on a very muddy course but unfortunately, despite their efforts, didn’t place in the top ten.  There were 129 and 119 runners, respectively in the senior races.

 

Very well done to all the children who took part – you should be very proud of yourselves competing against 25 other schools across Milton Keynes.

 

Thank you to Mrs Vaike, Mrs Newman and Mr Taylor for their efforts in training the children so that they were ready to compete on the day.


 

Thursday 17 October

Luckily the rain held off as thirteen Loughton School pupils braved a muddy pitch at Milton Keynes Rugby Club to play tag rugby friendlies against other schools. A big well done in particular to Austin who was new to the team, joining Jean, Natalie, Charlotte, Becky, James, Dan, Dom, Callum, Dumebi, Wahaj, Rex and Shay. The team worked really hard and showed great sportsmanship. Particular credit should go to Natalie who took on responsibility for organising each game with the opposing teams. The prize for the muddiest child went to Shay!

 

Thursday 10 October

Over this last half term, a group of Loughton School tag rugby players have been representing our school at MKRUFC aiming to get the year 5/6 boys and girls across Milton Keynes playing tag rugby and enthusiastic about the rugby world cup. This has been a non-competitive tournament involving the primary schools across Milton Keynes encouraging children to become involved and enjoy the game of tag rugby. Our team has thoroughly enjoyed each and every game we have played. We have learnt new skills, met new friends and have come a long way in our confidence as players and as team representatives. Overall, it has been a really enjoyable experience for both the team, the coaches and the supportive parents who have come along each week and joined in the side-line fun. We thank Dan Pearson at the MKRUFC for all the hard work in putting this tournament together, the parents for their on-going support and of course, the children for training, playing and being such wonderful representatives of Loughton School. They have played each and every match fairly and with respect (and of course with great skill!)

 

Wednesday 9 October 

Our 24 swimmers from year 4 are already making a splash! Each week they have been attending lessons at Woughton leisure centre accompanied by our very own Miss Garner and Mrs Dillon (both qualified swimming instructors) and Miss Coppins. The children’s confidence in the water has grown from week to week, as well as their ability. Already, many have become confident swimmers and are close to being able to swim unaided. Last week, the swimmers learnt about the importance of water safety and what to do if they saw someone in need. Working in pairs, they used their pyjamas to make a lifeline to pull their partner to safety. It is wonderful to see how quickly they are progressing and we are looking forward to seeing them reach their goals!

 

Thursday 3 October 

Eight children from year 3 and 4 took part in the schools first ever Gala swimming competition. Alexa HB3, Zoe HB5, Rodrego HB6, Elizabeth HB6, Lohita HB6, Lucas HB7, Billy HB7 and Lucas HB8 all took part in three races against 15 other schools. The three races included breast stroke, back stroke and freestyle. Overall the team won 4 races and finished in the top 5 in many others. The competition created a great opportunity for children to be in a competitive environment with over 100 people watching and it improved their communication as they worked as a team and all supported each other. 

The competition is something we will be looking to be a part of in years to come. Please let us know if your child takes part in swimming Galas or if they swim for a club and you would like them to be involved in the future.

 

Thursday 26 September

Mrs Vaike was extremely proud of the team!

 

Monday 23 September

8 children from year 5 took part in a badminton competition at Denbigh school. Isabella, Medha, Alexandra, Akshita, Shay, Joel, Harry M, and Dexter all represented the school.
