Cross Country Event 2023


On Friday 9th June, Watlington held a Cross Country race for children in Reception - Year 6. We were very lucky to be helped by the lovely sport leaders from Icknield School, who led a warm-up and led the way around the route. All of the children ran brilliantly. Well done everyone, what a fantastic morning we had!


A special congratulations to the children who won a medal. There was a medal given to the fastest boy, fastest girl and the best sportsman each year group. 



WR football tournament in Barton - well done for reaching the semi-finals Team Watlington!

Football match against Tetsworth - round two!

Well done team Watlington for a great game against Tetsworth on Tuesday 28th March. We drew 1-1 and I think it’s fair to say that the two teams were very evenly matched! You showed true team spirit as always. 😊

Netball match against Chalgrove

Friendly football match against Tetsworth


Well done Watlington for a fantastic game against Tetsworth School on Monday 20th February. You played brilliantly! Unfortunately, it wasn't our day and Tetsworth won 5 - 2. As always, the children represented Watlington perfectly. Well done team smiley

Friendly football match against Chalgrove


Well done Watlington for a fantastic football game against Chalgrove. The final score was 2-1 to Chalgrove - Watlington put up a good fight and it was a very close game. The teacher from Chalgrove commented on how well behaved our children were and the brilliant sportsmanship skills that they showed. Well done team, I am so proud of you all.

Sports Hall Athletics Tournament at Icknield 


On Wednesday 25th January, some of our year 5/6 children went to Icknield to take part in a Sports Hall Athletics tournament. Four local schools took part and I am so pleased to say that we won the entire event! The children were incredibly skilled and showed some brilliant sportsmanship. Please take a look at our photos below - I like to think they are so blurry because the children were moving too quickly for me to take a good photo of them! We definitely have some future Olympians here...! 


Well done Eagles, you were all amazing smiley


Year 5/6 Football Tournament


On Monday 14th November, Watlington hosted a friendly football tournament with Ewelme and Lewknor. The team (who had never played a match as a team before!) won their first match 6 - 0! The second match was much harder and they unfortunately lost 2 - 0 to a very strong team. I was so proud of all the children who participated; they showed great teamwork skills and represented our school brilliantly. A massive thank you to Mr Challis for refereeing the matches! Hopefully, this will be the first of more tournaments and sports matches against other schools. 


Well done team! yes
