Over the last term the school’s dance club, led by the experienced Becka Ward, have been working hard to perfect two different routines. The dancers were able to perform their routines for the whole school in assembly and did not disappoint! They had both a street style and a cheer style dance to show and they put on a fantastic performance for us all to see. it was amazing to see the dancers enjoying their live performance after all their work!

Well done to all the dancers for their great work and for having the confidence to get up and perform in front of the whole school and a big thank you for Becka for all her hard work!


Coaches from the Foot-Tech Academy have been kind enough to come into school to run a football club for our Year 1s and 2s. We’ve had plenty of boys and girls from both classes joining the club and they have been thoroughly enjoying themselves. They’ve been learning plenty of new skills and tricks, playing all kinds of different football games – including one game where they put on their eye-patches and become footballing pirates!

Hopefully the Year 1s and 2s continue to enjoy their football club and learn lots of new skills too!





Our Year 6 football team took part in the EFL ‘Road to Wembley’ Kids Cup organised by Leeds United. In wintry conditions they played against two other schools, coming away with one victory out of four matches. The team represented our school brilliantly and, despite the icy wind and rain, enjoyed themselves thoroughly.




Saturday 4th November saw the first cross-country meet of the year, attended by a whole group of enthusiastic athletes from Spring Bank. The event took place at Middleton Park with an early start for many of our runners. We had participting runners from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6, all of whom did fantastically well and tried their best, really impressing the spectating Mr. Wrankmore and Mr. Thomas. A special mention must be given to Year 4’s Emma Johnson, who managed to come in 9th place, an astounding achievement!

As part of our weekly SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) assembly, our dance club performed for the whole school! The theme of our assembly was about the 3 ‘P’s: perseverance, being positive and having patience in order to reach a goal or learn something new. Our dance club have done just that, practising their routines every Tuesday after school and being patient and positive until they had learnt all the steps.

Congratulations to all our performers and their dance teacher for their fabulous show!
