Welcome to the sport of 2018-2019. Let’s hope we have lots of fun and achieve big things as a school and individually.
What a busy October we have had in regards to sport. We have got through to the Grand Finals of sportshall athletics and swimming....many congratulations to all that have taken part.
4/10/18- Tag Rugby at Knaresborough Rugby Club
8/10/18- Individuals Cross Country at Harrogate High School, several of the pupils entered this event on the Saturday. A lovely story of one of our pupils stopping to help another child on the way round the course...fantastic.
16/10/18- Grand Final at the Hydro for the swimmers, an impressive 13th out of 16 and what a fantastic experience for them all.
17/10/18- Football held at Harrogate Town, came third in the group stages and 5th overall. The ball just would not go in the back of the net and a penalty wasn’t given...that’s how football goes sometimes. Well done to the team who were all supportive of each other.
YET to come before we break up for half term... Boys football at Rossett High School and the Small Schools Final of sportshall athletics.
3/4 Football at St. John Fishers
A great day for football with the sun out and a gentle breeze. The pupils all played superbly as a team and won most of their games against the 6 schools that were there. Harry Kelly was amazing in goal. Well done on coming joint 4th in the tournament.
Ripon Spa Baths Swimming Gala 26/9/18
A team of year 4 and 5s set off to take part in the annual swimming gala at Ripon Spa Baths. Could they emulate the year before by winning? YES! they won by 1 point. This means they are now through to the Grand Final at The Hydro Harrogate in October. Well done to the whole team for their outstanding performances.
Congratulations and a massive well done to Louie Wilson, Noah Sullivan, Isobella Hall and Marielle Joussemet for coming a very credible 2nd in the area final at mini tennis at St John Fishers.
Y4/5 Small Schools Tri Golf 26/4/18
For this event we took two teams one year 5 team and one year 4 team. Everyone enjoyed the event and thought it was a great sport to play. We have now purchased two tri golf sets to use in PE lessons. The teams finished in 1st and 2nd place respectively.
Hi 5 Netball 23/4/18
Finally, the netball took place after many postponements due to the bad weather. Despite the team not being able to practice due to Mrs Curtis injuring her ankle, the teams were very excited and apprehensive about playing. They did all play well in both teams and finished overall in 4th and 5th place. Well done to all who took part.
After cramming into the busy school day some extra gymnastics sessions for the team, they headed out to Harrogate High School to take part in the area finals. Both teams were “exceptional “ Miss Tobin said. Both teams demonstrated the three routines (floor management, body management and vault) with superb execution and flair. The year 4 team finished in 3rd place overall, so a massive well done and congratulations to them. The year 5/6 team were missing a gymnastics due to an injury, this meant they were down to 4, they scored an impressive 107.4 to claim 4th place but narrowing missed out on third, as the third placed team scored 107.5! The first place team scored 110 points so it was extremely close, well done to the y5/6 team you were magnificent.
A year 4 team and a year 5/6 team went to compete in the gymnastics competition on Monday 5th February. Both teams had enjoyed their coaching with Mrs Tobin and were excited and keen to take part. The extra coaching must have paid off as the year 4 team came away as overall winners and the y5//6 team came second. This now means both teams are through to the area final the first week back after half term.
