On Thursday 14th July, both KS1 and KS2 sports days took place in the glorious sunshine. All children took part in a variety of different sporting events including long jump, shuttle races, javelin, shot put, basketball shooting, target throws and hurdles. After the class events took place we watched representatives from each class compete in the sprint race, egg and spoon race, shot put, team race, relay race and the javelin. Well done to all the children for a fantastic day and to all the parents that came to support (and race in the egg and spoon race!). A big thank you to Mr Wrankmore for organising the day. Have a look at photos from the day below:

Last Friday afternoon, we finished Health and Sports week with the dance competition. The whole school enjoyed a variety of dance performances from individuals and groups from children in both KS1 and KS2. We were also treated to a fantastic performance from members of our school’s street dance club. Well done to everyone that took part and congratualtions to our winners Bobbi and Ellie (Year 6) and runners up Xahon and Rakealan (Year 6) and Orla (Year 4)!



This week, the school is taking part in our own Health and Sports week. The children have been enjoying a range of activities so far such as Li Shi, basketball, football and Move a Mile in classes. Many more activities are planned for the week such as rugby, martial arts and tri golf. We also look forward to KS1 and KS2 sports day on Thursday 14th July and the dance competition on Friday 15th July. Thank you to all that have taken part and helped get the week off to a great start!

Year 3 stepped back in time to become Anglo-Saxons during their visit to Dunstan’s Hall at Temple Newsam last week. The children enjoyed learning about how the Anglo-Saxons lived in an interactive workshop. The day involved making flour using traditional methods, making bread and battle training in the afternoon!

Our KS2 Careers Fair took place last week and was a great success. The children enjoyed talking to thirteen different careers experts from a great variety of professions including dentistry, catering, law, coding, civil service, medicine, management, police, chef, meteorology, Royal Mail and science.

Thank you to all of the people who gave their time to make the event happen.Picture 091 Picture 002 Picture 006 Picture 010 Picture 017 Picture 019 Picture 028 Picture 036 Picture 037 Picture 038 Picture 045 Picture 046 Picture 050 Picture 051 Picture 057 Picture 073 Picture 078 Picture 082 Picture 090
