Through a balance of individual and team, co-operative, competitive and creative activities, we aim to extend our pupil's abilities and opportunities. All pupils are taught a variety of sporting skills during their P.E. lessons and there are plenty of sports-based after school clubs for pupils to access. We are lucky to have three large playing fields, a well-equipped hall and hard play surfaces. In all our sporting activities we instil in children a sense of fair play, sporting behaviour, a positive attitude to competition and above all a sense of fun and enjoyment. Pupils in Year 4 take part in swimming lessons once a week throughout the year. Pupils in Year 6 travel to Robinwood Activity Centre for a residential visit where they experience a range of more adventurous outdoor pursuits.

On Saturday, our school entered a team at the National Swimming Championship finals, at Ponds Forge in Sheffield. This is an extremely prestigious event and this was only the second time that we have reached the finals.
We had qualified in two events: the Mixed relay and the Freestyle relay and we were facing schools from across the country - the majority of whom have their own swimming pools.
Unfortunately, we didn't make any finals on the day, but to place in the top 24 teams in the country is a huge achievement.
Well done to Drew, Ava, Grace and Martha, who had a superb experience.
Also, a big thanks to Brindon Addy for sponsoring us, by providing the team with shirts.

Unfortunately, a number of the sporting events were sadly cancelled last week as a result of the dreadful British weather; staff were as disappointed as children!!
Fingers crossed for better weather this week! Good luck to our 8 girls taking part in the Girls' Cricket Tournament at Almondbury on Tuesday, to our Tag Rugby team in their tournament on Wednesday and also to our cyclists competing on Thursday.
Keep your fingers crossed for sunshine!

Today marks one whole year since Darcey, Gretel and Lyela attended the Girls Active training. They have become amazing Girls Active Leaders (GALs) in school and have gained so many skills from doing this.
In the last year, they have become self-sufficient in organising activities for girls across the school. Another achievement over the last year is the successful recruitment of three more GALs from Year 4. Libby, Libby and Tove became the next generation of GALs and they have brought a great enthusiasm to the team. The GALs are now designing and delivering active lessons to girls in every year group four days a week and are contributing to keeping girls active in our school.
WELL DONE! I'm so proud of you and what you have achieved!
