2/10/19 - Ripon Spa Baths Swimming Gala
Having been selected from the time trials held a couple of weeks ago, the swimming team consisted of Jenson Miles, William Hunt, Milly Kirby, Ella Curtis, Mia Sterling, Lottie Sterling, Isobel Hall, Will Edmondson, Alexander Wyatt and Ziggy Fletcher.
They all performed superbly and swam their best races. Most of the team coming first in their heats and with the fastest times overall. Those that came second or third, narrowly missing out by a whisker. Overall the team scored 115 points which sees them through to the area final at the Hydro in Harrogate later on this term. Well done to all of you, what a great start to our 2019-2020 sporting calendar.
What a great way to start a new school year, we have been awarded the school games GOLD award for the 4th consecutive year! I feel very proud of this achievement as it is not any easy thing to achieve. I would like to make a special thank you to, Mr Rob Coupland and Mr Oli Richardson for their hard work in helping us to achieve this, I could not have done this without them.
I'm looking forward to the new year of sport, let's hope 2019-2020 is as successful.
Welcome to the sport of 2018-2019. Let’s hope we have lots of fun and achieve big things as a school and individually.
12/7/19 Whole School Rounders
What a fabulous afternoon for our penultimate sporting activity of this school year...the whole school rounders. Much better weather than last year, luckily we had a respite from the heat when batting as our safety areas were in the shade.
Great gamemanship, support, help and most importantly FUN as staff, parents/careers and all the children from reception to year 6 took part. The buzz around the field was superb ensuring it was a memorable afternoon for everyone.
Last sporting calendar of the year on Tuesday 16th July...SPORTS DAY.
5/3/19 Hi5 Netball
Despite the rainy weather both teams played and competed really well. They had some expert coaching from Mrs Curtis since the Autumn in preparation for this tournament.
4/3/19 and 6/3/19 Bikeability for Year 6
The Year 6 children took part in 2 full days of training about how to ride their bikes safely. They started in the school playground honing their bike control around cones etc., and then moved onto the roads around Bishop Monkton. For some of the children this was their first time cycling on a road and they found it quite daunting to begin with but as they got used to it they became more confident. Over the two days the children worked towards their level 1 and level 2 certificates.
Key steps 1 (year 1/2) and key steps 2 (year 3/4) 5/2/19
After practising for the last month, both teams set off for the area competition at Ripon Outwood Academy. All very excited to be finally showing off their gymnastics skills under the watchful eye of Miss Tobin. Miss Tobin was very proud of how the children performed and how they remembered the three routines of Body Managment, Floor excercise and vault.
The year 3/4 team did very well and came 5th and 8th out of 9 teams who competed. The year 1/2 teams did extremely well, placing Year 1 team 1st and the year 2 team 2nd overall out of 12 teams. It now means the year 1 and year 2 teams will go through to represent the Ripon area in the final at Harrogate High School on the 13th February. GOOD LUCK.
14/11/18 - Football Final at Harrogate Town.

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.

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.
