What a fantastic afternoon! It was great to be back at the poolside after so long, competing against 9 other schools from the Ribble Valley. The Balderstone team swam with such determination and strength! Every member dug deep and swam to the very best of their ability... they were fantastic ambassadors for Balderstone and made us very proud.  On top of this, we came home with a great collection of medals:


GOLD x 2: for Austin in both the 3 x 25m medley and 25m freestyle

SILVER: for Emily  in 25m breast stroke

SILVER for girls 4 x 25m freestyle relay

BRONZE for boys 4 x 25m freestyle relay

BRONZE for boys 3 x 25m medley

Also , some narrow misses for Paloma, who finished in 4th place by 0.19 seconds in 25m Backstroke and the girls 3 x 25m medley who also finished in 4th place... by 0.062 seconds!


The overall results reflected our best ever year of swimming:

The Boys team finished in 2nd Place overall

The Girls team finished in 4th place overall

The whole team finished in 3rd place overall

Well done Everyone...a very enjoyable afternoon, with outstanding sporting values on show all afternoon and impeccable behaviour!

A full morning of physical fun playing against lots of other schools. This event focussed on the key sporting values and relied on the children's honesty whilst playing. This is certainly where we shone, with our children taking themselves off the court when they had been hit. There was some real passion and determination on show and the teams made Mrs Heyworth, Mrs Hussain and Mr Simpson really proud - well done everyone! 



Y3/4 Gymnastics Competition

at St Augustine's RC High School

Monday7th February 3:30 - 4:30


Team: Safaa, Laura, Liyaana, William


After some early morning lessons at school, the team learnt to use the box and perform a floor routine. This is the first time the children had competed in such a competition and they performed with control and confidence. There were many teams competing over the course of the evening, and we finished the event in a very respectable 8th Position.

A special well done to Safaa for her 10/10 score on the vault; Laura for 9.8/10 on the floor; William 9/10 on the vault and Liyaana who scored 9.2 on the floor. Amazing achievements - Well done Children.

Thanks to Mrs Riddell who helped to train and transport the children



Y1/2 Dance Festival

Our funky movers joined the Ribble Valley dance festival to learn an Aladdin themed dance routine and then to have some groovy fun with lots of different dance and rhythm props! It was hard to work out who was having more fun - Mrs Gow & Mrs Burton or the children! It was great to see both staff and children groovin' and movin' altogether. Great fun all round! 

Thanks to Mrs Gow and Mrs Burton for taking the children.

What a fabulous opportunity for our girls to try out a range of different physical activities to improve our mental and physical health. Upon our arrival, the team were excited to learn that they would be participating in archery, climbing, spinning and... being able to use the gym. The children embraced each activity with enthusiasm and there were smiles in abundance throughout the afternoon. Thanks to Mrs Gow for taking the children to this event.
