Schools Baton 2018

To celebrate the success of the Tour de Yorkshire, a special baton is touring ‘God’s Own Country’ to visit schools to promote cycling and the benefits it has for our children and adults. Thanks to our friend ‘Bike-It Dave’ for including us in the tour, the children received the baton very enthusiastically. Our winning banner looked magnificent too. A brilliant afternoon, well done to everyone involved. Following the ceremonial arrival of the schools’ baton, Bike-It Dave led a cycling session with Year 6. A great session was enjoyed thoroughly by everyone.

Golf 2018

 

On Friday afternoon we made the short trip to Hoyland Common for the annual KS2 Tri Golf Competition. It was a fantastic afternoon and the standard of Golf from all schools was incredible. Some really low scores were posted (this is positive) and we managed to clinch third place which is an amazing achievement. As always, the boys were a real credit to themselves and the school. A special shout out goes out to our Year 2 pupil, who posted the best score in his group against children who are 3/4 years older than him! Well done!

Cricket 2018

 

On Tuesday we entered the KS2 South Yorkshire Schools Kwik Cricket Qualifiers at Shaw Lane. We had a fantastic afternoon and some great Cricket was played by the team.  We won the first game by 6 runs against Shawlands but unfortunately lost in the second game by 17 runs against a strong Thurgoland team. Due to this loss we just missed out on qualification for the next stage, however we had a great afternoon and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all the lads. A big thanks goes to Dean from Yorkshire CCC for organising the event.

Tag Rugby 2018

We had a fantastic afternoon taking part in the KS2 TAG Rugby at Birdwell. After winning the first group game 3:0 against Greenfield and losing the second 2:0 to Hoyland Common, we finished 2nd in the group, progressing into the 3/4place play off. It was a close encounter against Jump, that went into sudden death with the scores locked at 1:1 at full time. However a last minute try secured us a well-deserved third place! As always we were really proud of the children, who gave their all and were a real credit to themselves and school! Well done! A special thanks to Mr. Smith for his coaching & leadership.
