National Stars of Dance

We are delighted – and extremely proud – to display our two National Dancing Stars. After qualifying for the National Championships via the North West regional event, they attended the contest at Norbreck Castle in Blackpool. From Year 5, our dancing star competed against children up to two years her senior and achieved a wonderful 6th place in the national standings! This was in Classical and Modern Sequence. A fabulous achievement. From Year 2, competing in the same disciplines at her younger age group, our superstar became International Dance Teachers Association National Champion! We are delighted to share these outstanding achievements and could not be any prouder. What an amazing weekend for the girls and their lovely family.

Year 2 Orienteering Stars

We worked together as a team to try our hand at orienteering. We had to find different check points around the school grounds using an aerial photograph of the school. Teamwork was key as we all had different roles to play in locating the different places on the photograph.  We used our knowledge of physical features that we recognised, to locate the cards.  We needed to collect six different cards showing places within Yorkshire to complete the event.

Wild Walk in Year 2

Year 2 went on an adventure on the Wild Walk organised by Mrs Roberts. We had a wonderful time making bird boxes with Hazel from the Tidy Team and Bog Babies out of clay. We even made our own hotdogs on the fire pit. We loved exploring nature it was so much fun. Thank you to the friends and families who were able to attend, we had a great time and hope that you did too!

Key Stage 1 Mini Olympics

We travelled with a team of 20 children from Year 1 and Year 2 to take part in the St. Mary’s Academy Trust annual KS1 Mini Olympics event at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield. Children took part in sprint races, hurdles, speed bounce, standing long jump, target throw, javelin and relay races against children from other schools within the trust. It was an extremely competitive afternoon and one that resulted in just a few points separating the top positions. Our children were amazing as always and finished in fourth place! They gave their all and were a real credit to themselves and school! Well done to everyone and a huge well done to the eventual winners Royston St Johns! Thank you to Mr. Smith and Miss Bennett for accompanying our awesome athletes, another brilliant opportunity.
