Oakfield Academy Year 8’s Boys Football Team blaze a trail of glory!

On Monday April 22nd,  Oakfield and Selwood year 8 pupils competed in the LAURIE EDWARDS Memorial Trophy Match, at Frome Town Stadium.  After confidently beating Selwood 4-1, Mr Fowler (boys PE) said, ‘the boys were excellent and played so well individually and as a team that I was unable to award ‘man of the match’!

Goal scorers: Tom D, Kalem M, Stan F, Albie H.

The Oakfield boys also reached the Mid-Somerset cup finals this year, and go on to the regional South SEST Futsal finals for the second year running, beating three year 9 teams at the County finals held at Millfield School on the 16th April.

The team will now go on to represent Oakfield in Swindon at the Futsal Arena, a purpose built facility with state of the art equipment.  Oakfield pupils enjoy regular Futsal matches. (a small sided version of indoor football which uses a smaller heavier ball) Futsal put the emphasis on teamwork, skill, close control and spatial awareness.

Oakfield’s younger pupils are also excelling in boys football. Recently competing against the always strong Millfield Specialist Sports School, winning one match and achieving a draw in the other.

Goal scorers: Rudi B and Lewis W.

Oakfield would like to thank the Oakfield Fundraisers for supporting the culture of sport at the Academy, by buying a new KS2 kit. The Academy also wishes to thank boys PE teacher, Mr Fowler PE for his dedication.

Mars Balloon Launch!

0D0Y7780web

G&T Science event for KS2. The British Space Agency funded for two helium balloons carrying cameras, weather recording equipment and experiments devised by pupils (from a number of schools including Oakfield) to be launched from Oakfield Academy. Our pupils came up with a number of innovative experiments mainly to find out how items or substances would change when introduced to the earths atmosphere. These experiments included: a lego spaceman, a memory card, a chewy sweet, an elastic band and a clove of garlic! SEA (Systems Engineering & Assessment LTD from Bristol) devised this event as part of their outreach programme. The two balloons were launched from our playing fields. Check out the BBC website which covered the event. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-21899341

Oakfield Fundraisers give funding towards a new Oakfield football kit

The Key stage two football teams were presented with a brand new Oakfield Academy kit before they left for their fixture against Millfield on Thursday afternoon. The new kit, styled in the traditional red and black of Oakfield PE and team kits looked very smart and brought smiles to the faces of all who proudly pulled on the new jerseys. Little were they to know that the kit would help to inspire them, to two excellent results against the always strong Millfield specialist sports school later that afternoon. The PE department and pupils of Oakfield would like to thank the Oakfield fundraisers who raised the money for the new kit.

First outing in new kit a huge success!

Oakfield Academy KS2 Football – RESULTS

Oakfield 3 – 2 Millfield (Team 2)

Oakfield 4 – 4 Millfield (Team 1)

Revved up before Kick-Off by the prospect of a home cooked meal courtesy of Millfield Canteen, the boys were raring to go as the whistle sounded at 3:30pm on a breezy and bitterly cold Thursday afternoon in February. It was Oakfield who started strongest in both matches, closing the ball down early when the opposition had possession and finding space for themselves when Oakfield had the ball. The boys created many chances in the opening minutes from great work on the wings by Lewis W., Jayden W. and our two strikers Ciaran W and Alfie R. Millfield had the odd counter attack which resulted in a string of great saves on both pitches by Academy keepers Ben B. and Billy B. Oakfield’s electrifying start and pace paid off on the 7th minute, when a Lewis W’s cross was converted into the back of the net by a hapless Millfield defender to make it one nothing. Rudi B coolly slotted the ball into the corner of the Millfield goal from outside of the area to make it 2-0 minutes later. The third Oakfield goal came when a corner dropped to the left boot of Lewis W. who converted stylishly on the volley from the centre of the goal ten yards out. Jubilation as the ball smashed into the back of the net and the realisation set in that we were 3-0 up. Millfield scraped one back before half-time as a long ball caught Oakfield out, we did not panic and held strong into the second half to see the win out despite an additional Millfield goal. A mention to be given to an audacious attempt on goal by Ciaran W. who struck the ball from close to the half way line only to see it clatter off of the bar and high up into the air. On pitch two Oakfield came back from being 4-2 down to secure a well-earned draw. The team showed great character and all players that travelled to Millfield should be proud of how they represented Oakfield on and off of the pitch. A thoroughly deserved well done to all pupils!
