11/3/2020 North of England finals at The Walker Activity Dome, Newcastle Upon Tyne
The team all looked really smart in their kits, as we set of from school early on Wednesday morning to take part in the above named event. Everyone was eager and excited to take part. We arrived rather early as the drive up was really smooth. In total, there were supposed to be 8 teams but unfortunately one team dropped out and another team were stuck in roadworks on the M6 and decided to turn around and go back. This left 6 teams and after some organisational giggling around of pools, the event was underway. The team started off slow, but as the games progressed they got into their stride and played some really neat football, especially our keeper Harry Kelly who was awesome throughout. Some of his saves were sublime. Overall the team came 3rd in the North Of England, which is absolutely fantastic, well done to the whole team and thank you for representing our school at such a high standard.

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.

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.
