Gymnastics success for our all female team !

Just heard that we achieved great success yesterday at the Gymnastics Key Steps Competition held at the John Charles Sports Centre.

Four of our year 5/6 girls competed in 3 events : Body Management,Floor and Vault and we were rewarded with  silver medals for performance on Floor and Body Management, with a bronze medal for Vault. To top off this fabulous performance, we were also awarded a bronze medal for our overall mark as a team effort, so all four children left with a medal !! Huge congratulations to our Team – you did our School proud.

Thanks also to Miss Garnett for all of her hard work in helping to get the Team to this level – great job !

Chair’s update

Hello everyone – I would like to tell you about a couple of events that I was lucky enough to get to watch in school recently.

The first was last Wednesday 4 March, when some PE Students from Leeds Beckett University came in to school to run a PE/Gym session with Year 6 children. This was really great – with lots of different activities taking place – they even brought along 2 rowing machines and set up a competition amongst the children, who all seemed to be enjoying themselves. I would like to say a big thankyou to Charlie Whelan, one of our Student Teachers, for setting this event up – well done Charlie – it would be great if you could do it again!

The other thing I must tell you about is the event I sat in on today, along with a number of parents,which  involved all of the  Key Stage 2 children taking part in a production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. This was brilliant -quite a an interesting version to say the least !! What a great way to get our children interested in Shakespeare ! So, a big thankyou to Josh, from “West End in School” Company, for a great job and a big thankyou to our Key Stage 2 children – well done everyone.
