Sheffield Schools Active Awards - Primary School of the Year

posted 13 Jul 2019, 07:36 by Richard France

We are very proud to have been awarded the 'Primary School of the Year' award at the Sheffield Schools Active Awards this week.  To win this award, we had to showcase a whole-school approach to developing PE and justify the impact PE, sport and healthy living has had on pupils, staff and the community.

This is a real endorsement of our ethos on developing the whole-child, and our enriched wider curriculum.  It is an award for every child and member of staff in the school, as well as many parents who've supported sporting events over the years, and the many sports clubs and providers we work with in school and in the local community. Yippee!

The children who attended the awards had been nominated by their peers, parents and staff.  We had so many nominations that selecting just a few was very difficult.


Y6 Boys Kwik Cricket - 2nd in YORKSHIRE!

posted 13 Jul 2019, 07:12 by Richard France


On a stifling day in Hunslet (Leeds), our amazing team of Y6s finished second in the whole of Yorkshire in Kwik Cricket!  We won every game on our way to the final, where we couldn't quite manage to maintain our form and were beaten by a very good team from Pannal, Harrogate.  Congratulations to them!

Our boys did us proud, batting, bowling and fielding superbly all day with very little time to rest in between matches.  They were a credit to the school, and should be very proud of their achievement.

Many thanks to the parents who took the team to the game and gave the boys full support all day.


Y5 Boys - Kwik Cricket City Champions

On another beautiful day, our Y5 boys competed in the Kwik Cricket City Championships.  They won every game they played, and got better and better as the day went on.  We saw some excellent skills on show during the day, and as a team the boys hardly gave a run away all day, and took some amazing catches.  It was a pleasure to see their skills as a team develop over the day.  They will now go to the Yorkshire Championships next summer, when they are in Year 6.


 
 
 
 

Y5 Girls' Kwik Cricket - City Champions

posted 4 Jul 2019, 15:29 by Richard France

On a beautiful day, our Y5 girls competed in the Kwik Cricket City Championships.  They won every game they played, and got better and better as the day went on.  Every player had at least one brilliant game, and it was a pleasure to see their cricketing skills develop as the day went on.  They will now go to the Yorkshire Championships next summer, when they are in Year 6.

A very special thanks must go to the parents who dropped everything in order to transport and support the girls at very short notice after a mix up over dates and venues - THANK YOU!

After several weeks of shocking weather, we got lucky with Sports Day on 21st June!  The sun shone, and the children - as always - were a credit to the school and their families, taking part in every challenge with enthusiasm and great team spirit.

Many thanks to the DPA for helping with t-shirts (a massive job!) and running the brew station during the day.

Hopefully everyone had a 'reyt gud' time.

Y5 & Y6 Athletics Heats

32 Y5 & Y6 children represented the school in the Sheffield Federation for School Sport Athletics Heat this week.  Competing in sprints, relays, long, jump, ball throw and long runs and walks, the children performed brilliantly, and we had some fantastic results.  Many of the children have qualified for the city finals in a couple of weeks - let's hope for similar results and similar weather!


Y4 Summer Smash Kwik Cricket Competition

posted 7 Jun 2019, 05:54 by Richard France

Just before embarking on their residential, 9 Y4 children had the chance to represent the school in the heats of the Y4 Summer Smash Kwik Cricket Competition.  They played brilliantly as a team, scoring hundreds of runs, bowling well, and taking lots of catches in the field.  We finished second overall, very narrowly losing one match after winning all the other's in our mini-league.  As always, the children were a credit to the school, behaving like true sportspeople in victory and defeat.
