The children danced really well at The Derngate on Sunday July 21st and we were incredibly proud of both of our Strictly teams. I now have the final results and I am delighted to let you know that our year 3,4 team came joint 4th out of 17 schools and were only .5 behind the medal winners. Year 5,6 finished in 5th place out of 22 schools, just 1 point behind the medal winners. The competition was extremely strong with many schools putting on very polished performances so both teams did extremely well. Congratulations to all of the dancers and thank you to the parents who were such brilliant supporters on the day.
On Tuesday July 9th, 6 of our pupils took part in a cycling event at The Bramptons. The course was challenging and the cyclists worked really hard to finish in 3rd place. The children showed such resilience and determination and they represented the school brilliantly. Well done to every one of them.
Some of our Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in a Kwik Cricket tournament in Guilsborough on July 4th. The sun was shining which we were very grateful for as this tournament had previously been postponed due to rain! The children played really well, improving with every over. They came 7th overall and showed great sporting values throughout. They were supportive of each other and played brilliantly as a team.
Great news; we have been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for the 4th consecutive year. Well done to everyone in school; pupils, staff and parents for your hard work and support with our PE and School Sport this year. It is due to this that our school has been recognised as having great provision for our children.
