Welcome to our sports page. Here you will find details of a vast range of physical activities in which we are involved. Scroll to the link below to view our latest Sports Newsletter, which details many activities carried out during the year. Our sport and PE is also celebrated on individual class pages: please take some time to share these with your children by following the 'Classes' link above.
We are pleased to announce that we will be competing in the School Games Programme again this year with many competitions organised for us by our local SGO's (Sara and Kathryn). These Level 2 competitions are in addition to the many sporting opportunities and occasions which take place on a daily basis both in and out of lessons. All of our pupils take part in two hours of curriculum PE and Sport and many choose to attend lunchtime and after school clubs. Our current challenge is for every pupil to participate in the 'Golden Mile' initiaitive. Currently, the Play Leaders, House Captains and Mrs. Elrick are busy setting up the database to record the participation rate and all the classes are polishing their golden shoes!
Our annual 'Walk to School' week has just finished with over 80% of the school either walking or 'parking and striding' to school. Thank you to everyone who participated in this which allowed the children to start their day feeling refreshed from an early morning stroll and ready to learn. Our recent School Travel Plan is at the bottom of this page for reference.
In every lesson, our pupils are encouraged to observe the following values. These help the children to understand that although winning is a positive experience, it is how a team communicates and works together which will ultimately make them successful. Pupils are also encouraged to believe in themselves and always give 100 % at all times.
We actively encourage all of our pupils to pursue their sporting passions outside of school and we celebrate any achievements in our school newsletter 'The Nutshell'. Click on the 'Newsletters' link above to find out what our pupils have been getting up to outside of school. Our talented youngsters regularly particiapte in diving, dancing, swimming and gymnastics to name but a few!

Autumn Term 2016
Stop Press News:
We have been awarded the Gold Level for the Sainsbury's School Games Mark. It has arrived today!
Ten new playmakers from Year 5 have had a super introduction into leadership through taking part in the PlayMaker Award training at Bohunt School. Having completed a day's training, these children can now organise small games and activities for other children, ably supported by Mrs Elrick.
Our playmakers are now part of our School Parliament which meets regularly every week.
The football season kicks off at Langrish!
This week was the first round of the Hampshire Cup which is open to schools from across the county. After many lunchtime practices, our two teams were ready to face the opposition. The boys started the week with their first round match against Velmead Junior School. The opposition was very tough, but our team worked together and by half time were in the lead. The final score of 3-1 to Langrish was thoroughly well deserved. Our second round, however, did not go in our favour. With three members of the squad missing, Bryn valiantly stepped in but even his amazing goal keeping skills together with Sam's outstanding corner was not enough to put us through to the third round. Never mind boys - here's to the next competition in November.
The girls played their match later on in the week and came up against some very strong players from Morelands School. Again, our team worked together well and didn't give up even though they were down at half time. Their resilience was highly commendable and they all finished the game with beaming smiles!
The after school Chelsea football club is also in full swing with players from Years 1-6 sharpening their skills.
But it's not just football...
Netball Club is extremely well attended with players from Years 4, 5 and 6 training weekly.
Under the watchful eye of Coach Fiers, the players are preparing for their first matches against other local schools. Take a look at the All England website for further information about High Five netball which prepares our players for the full seven a-side game at secondary school. Our first match is on 10th Novemebr against Sheet, so watch out for the match report.
Year 2 Tag Rugby Festival
On Friday 11th November, six members from Year 2 travelled to Farnham Rugby Club where they represented Langrish School in a local festival. The team won one match and drew three, demonstrating excellent play throughout the afternoon. Well done Gethin, Ollie, Hugo, Isabelle, Ella and Grace.
SSG Football Team
Four members of Year 6 have been selected to train alongside other talented players in our local network. They attend regular training and have just won their first match against Four Marks Primary School. Well done to all the players involved.
Spring Term Cross Country
On Friday 17th March, 19 children from Langrish Junior Department took part in the East Hampshire Cross Country race at Perins School. After many weeks of muddy training with Coach Carl, all the runners completed the course and we are so proud of their final positions. In the Y3/4 girls race, Sophie was placed 4th, just narrowly missing out on a medal. Dylon was fifth in the Y3/4 boys race, a spectacular achievement, considering he is still only in Year 3! Amelia was our first girl placed in the Y5/6 girls race and in the 5/6 boys race, Angus, George and Bryn were placed in the top 12. This means that these three boys qualify for a place in the Hampshire County finals, representing East Hampshire. Well done boys! Training continues after half term with the next race being held at St. Edmund's School in March.
