What an amazing Sports Week

RUN A MILE

Every class throughout school is taking part in Run a Mile every day.

Sky Sports Living

Some of our KS2 children participated in the Sky Sports Living for Sport. This was run in partnership

with Youth Sport Trust and was supported by world-class Athlete Mentors. The children were inspired

and it helped to build confidence and improve their practical skills.

Energiser

Our school already offers an average of two hours of PE per week. However, we need to do more to

encourage children to be active every day. So watch out for Mrs Bannister-Gregory, she is on a mission to

get us all participating in moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. 

 

SIV

Some children were invited to a new and exciting festival that took place at ICESheffield. Ten children

had the opportunity to try a number of activities - Ice Skating, a mini Curling festival on the Ice and High

Ropes - they all had a fantastic day.


SUFC Visitors
 

Billy Sharp (club captain) and  Simon Moore  (goalkeeper ) visited school today. They shared some of their favourite books with the children and answered many questions related to football and life. The children were very excited and really enjoyed talking and having their photographs taken with the stars. 

Parliament Programme

One of the coaches from Sheffield United Community Foundation delivered the Parliament Education Programme to our Year 5 and 6 children. The day comprised of  workshops and assemblies based around Parliament and democracy the children were really engaged with Parliament, democracy and politics through themes of rule-making and active citizenship. 

Chance to Shine Cricket
