Harvest 2017 

We staged our annual Harvest Festival at St. Peter’s Church Hoyland in front of a wonderfully supportive congregation. Children from EYFS 2 and Years 1-2 gave a superb performance of art, poetry, prayer and song to celebrate the fruits of the earth. Many thanks to Mrs. Evans for her coordination of this event – it was simply beautiful. Thanks to all Staff for their support of the event not least Mr. Ormondroyd for the musical accompaniment and Mr. Smith for the film. Thank you to Father Richard and Father Paul for allowing us to utilise our beautiful Church and special thanks to our #WonderfulCommunity for your support and attendance. Well done to everyone involved in this fabulous service; some wonderful messages were shared in a charming, creative and engaging way.

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.
