KS1 Animal Olympics
Thursday 16th May 2018
at Oakhill College, Whalley.
B Team: Georgia, Amber, Freddie, Dean, Matilda,
We were so excited to be participating in this event! The weather was glorious and we all had a lot of fun. We took part in 8 different “ Animal” events to earn points for our team. These included: Cheetah sprints, bunny bounce, hungry hippos, bouncing frogs, grass hoppers, skippy the kangaroo, busy bees and monkey madness agility course.
We were thrilled to come back to school and surprise Mrs Heyworth with our BRONZE medals! CONGRATULATIONS to our B team who scored a whopping 243 points to finish in 3rd place out of 14 teams. The A team weren't far behind with 222 points and the C team finished with 210. A fantastic achievement from all of our Squirrels.
Thank you to Mrs Gow, Mrs Burton, Mr Chaplain, Mr Simpson and Mr McGowan for preparing and taking the children to this event.
Y5/6 Tag Rugby Festival
at Clitheroe Rugby Club
Wednesday 22nd May 2019
Team: Robert (C), George R, George S, Ellis, Max, James R, Xander, Saher, Tara G, Mia and Aalisha
This team represented the school beautifully: they showed outstanding sportsmanship with all of the children displaying each of our sporting values in abundance. In addition to this, their performance at tag rugby was fantastic. In the first round we beat Salesbury A and Whalley B and lost narrowly to Waddington and West Bradford by 1 try. This meant that 3 of the 4 teams in this round had won 2 games and lost 1 game. The decision came down to try differences and we finished 2nd in this heat.
We then played other teams who had also finished 2nd in their group. We played against Peel Park and Gisburn and won all of these games: 4 - 3, 3 - 2 and 5 - 3.
Throughout the afternoon, the children worked really well as a team, with some particularly good defensive work. Every member succeeded in scoring at least one try - which was really rewarding to watch.
Special thanks to Mr Bargh for all his help and support on the day; to Mrs Redmayne for helping transport the children and also to the parents who came along to watch and support the team.
