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 (Sara Galliers). 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 continue 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 2017
We have been awarded the Gold Level for the Sainsbury's School Games Mark. It has now arrived and has pride of place in the front entrance hall. This reflects our outstanding provision for Sport and PE throughout the school, both in curriculum time and outside of school. Thank you to all members of our community who help with coaching, supporting and participating in the wide variety of sports on offer. We look forward to another successful year of sport for the 2017 - 18 season.
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 Morelands Junior School. The opposition was very tough, but our team worked together although we were down 4-0 at half time. During the second half, the boys showed real resiliance and didn't give up. We battled back to a 7-4 defeat, but were very proud of our performance. We are now looking forward to our next football competition.
The girls played their match on Thursday 5th October against Castle Primary School from Portchester. Again, our team worked together well and didn't give up even though we were down at half time. Goals from Evie brought the score to 3-2 and for a brief spell we were on the winning foot. However, the final score of 4-3 did not go our way, but we have been invited to Castle School for a return match as the game was so even. Despite a loss, everyone finished the game with beaming smiles!
In February, the girls were again in action, this time against Herne Juniors. It was a cold but clear day and the team were very excited to again be playing together against new opponenets. Izzy made her debut in goal and Alice was a strong addition to the team. The girls worked very hard and never gave up, despite the grass being incredibly long which made the going very tough! The final score was 4-2 to Langrish - well played everyone!
The Petersfield Schools Mixed Football Tournament
On Thursday 12th October, Langrish hosted the Petersfield Schools mixed football tournament. Teams came from Froxfield, West Meon, Buriton and Langrish to compete in the friendly matches. Everyone played well, and the goals went flying in from all directions (despite two balls being lost over the fence!) The team captains managed their team substitutions fairly and showed great leadership qualities in this role, supporting their teams in defeat and success and reminding them of the rules of sportsmanship. The Langrish Blue team were the most successful, but all players are to be commended on their match play. Well done everyone!
The SSG (Small Schools Group) Football Team
We were delighted to host the Small Schools Group football trials here on Monday 16th October. Players from our local six schools arrived and were put through a rigourous training morning led by Nigel and Chris. We have heard this morning that all of our players were successful and have been selected for the SSG squad. There will be matches arranged for them during the season and we will keep you updated with their results.
Well done to Leonie, Evie, George, Riley, Albert, Jacob and Toby on being selected.
But it's not just football...
Netball Club is extremely well attended with players from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 training weekly.
Under the watchful eye of Ms. Fiers and Mrs. Wright, 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 school netball team, comprising of Year 5 and 6 girls, played against Herne Junior School in February. It was really good to play against another school team, having practised all term. It was really pleasing to see the team putting all their coaching into match play and although they were defeated 7-3, the future certainly looks promising with some very strong individual performances. We are looking forward to our next friendly match against Froxfield Primary School soon.
On 6th October, the boys tag rugby team travelled to Farnham Rugby Club to compete in a friendly festival against other junior school teams. Their matchplay developed incredibly during the tournament and Bryn was our top try scorer. Coach Dave praised the boys for meeting their personal targets of runnning straight for the try line rather than moving in a lateral manner and for passing accurately. We are looking forward to our next outing to Farnham in November.
Swimming- East Hampshire Games
Langrish School entered two teams into the 'AquaSplash' competition held in March at Alton Sports Centre. The teams from Years 3 and 4 had to complete various challenges against other local schools including star floats, mushroom floats, float races and relays. Both teams competed very successfully, finishing in second and fourth place respectively. Well done teams!
Year 6 competed in the Petersfield Area schools dodgeball competion in March this year. The team had been practising as part of their curriculum P.E. lessons and so, when it came to the actual day, were confident that they were well prepared. All went exactly to plan and under the helpful eye of Coach Jones, the team came first! Well done - we are very proud of you all.
Cross Country Club
Cross Country is very well attended and Coach Carl is already preparing the teams for races at St. Edmunds School in November and at Perins School in February. All the children are working hard on improving their fitness and we look forward to updating this section with news of their success.
