Congratulations to our Year 3,4 gymnastics team who travelled to Daventry Phoenix Sports Academy on Monday March 18th. They competed against 12 other school teams in 3 disciplines; floor, body management and vault.

A special mention goes to Thomas for achieving the highest combined score of the afternoon. Huge thanks to Mrs Barber for giving up so much of her time to coach and support the children.

On Saturday December 1st, our Year 5,6 Strictly team danced at the Derngate Theatre in Northampton in the Dancing Schools UK competition.

Scores were very close at the top of the leader board and Overstone came 4th, half a mark behind the 3rd placed school! The children loved the experience of dancing on the big stage and they should all be really proud of themselves. We look forward to the regional finals on Sunday July 21st

7 of our Class 3 boys played in a football tournament at Moulton School on Wednesday evening. 8 schools took part and I was so proud of our team as they played brilliantly. They won all of their pool matches and their semi final without even conceding a goal! They then qualified for the final against Moulton's A team. They played a great game but were just beaten by 3 goals to 1. Congratulations to the boys and thank you to the parents for being a brilliant group of supporters! It was a wonderful evening for Overstone and I was extremely proud!
