  • Netball fixture vs Knebworth

    Published 16/07/19, by Robbie Steedman

    On Wednesday 3rd July Roebuck went to Knebworth in what would be our last game of the year.

    Coming off the back of a fantastic win in our previous game we wanted to get off to a good start. Unfortunately Knebworth were strong in the first quarter and ended it 1-0 up after scoring the first basket. Determined to stay positive and after playing some good netball in the first quarter, we knew that the goals would come. In the second quarter we pushed on, playing some fantastic attacking play and that, mixed with improved shooting, got us in a 2-1 lead at half time. The second half began with more of the same, we passed around them and their defence struggle to cope with the pace of the passing and we scored three more goals making the score 5-1 going into the last quarter. Knebworth tried to push on and make a comeback scoring the first goal of the quarter, but again our attacking play was too much for them to handle and we scored one last goal to seal the win.

    A fantastic last game for us which really showed our progression throughout the year.

  • Netball Fixture vs St Vincent

    Published 12/03/19, by Robbie Steedman

    On a wet and windy Thursday after school, 8 Roebuck girls headed over to St Vincent De Paul for a game of netball.

    The game was very close in the first third with the girls doing well in really tough conditions, the ball was slipping out of there hands at the last moments as we were building promising attacks but managed to into the break with a 1-0 lead.

    A similar story in the second half as we struggled to get a rhythm going with our passing and let St Vincent back in the game ending the second third at 2-2

    But we went out for the last third like a house on fire scoring 4 goals in a row to go 6-2 up with only 5 minutes left. But thinking they had the game in the bag let the team down as St Vincent fired back late with 3 goals of their own leaving the last 2 minutes very tense. But thankfully our attacking power proved too strong as we scored one last goal to complete the win!

    The final score was 7-5 Well done to all the girls who took part it was a fantastic performance in tough conditions. It also means we keep our 100% win record so far this year in the league!

  • Sportshall Athletics tournament

    Published 12/03/19, by Robbie Steedman

    On Thursday 14 th February 18 students (9 boys and 9 girls) walked over to  Barnwell to take part in the Stevenage Sports Hall athletics festival.

    It started off with the girls running their track events whilst the boys competed in their field events. Once both were done they would switch over and compete in the other events.

     Each child competed in three different field events which varied from jumping to throwing, testing a wide range of skills.

    Track events started with the short races and gradually got longer, starting with 1 lap sprints and ending with a 6 lap race.

    All of the team represented the school remarkably well showing great desire and work ethic whilst also showing off their competitive spirit and sportsmanship.

    Big shout out to our race winners Imogen, Bernie, Liam and George.

  • Speed Stacking Finals YR 3/4

    Published 11/02/19, by Robbie Steedman

    On Thursday 7th February a group of year 3 and year 4 students all went to St Nicholas School to take part in the speed stacking finals, after qualifying earlier on in the year. 

    We spent the morning competing against 5 other schools that had made the finals,  and with some schools putting in some really fast times, we knew it was going to be tough. The children rose to the challenge though. Each child competed for individual awards in the 3-3-3 and 3-6-3 stacking, as well as the ultimate decider which was the whole team 3-6-3 relay.

    Unfortunately we couldn't get any individual awards despite the best efforts of the children taking part. The teams best performance came in the 3-6-3 team relay where they came together to beat their quickest ever score. But again it wasn't quite enough as we finished 4th overall , therefore just missing out on a medal by just 3 seconds.

    A proud moment for the group came near the end as at every event the Sporting Futures team pick a school that show one of their sporting values, for this event the focus was on self belief. Our group of students were the team nominated as showing this value the most ,which shows how much they pushed themselves to achieve as high a finish as they could.  Well done.

    The team: Riley (Y3), Jasmine, Jessica B, Harley, Noah, Nathaniel, Jayden, Cayden.
