Sports Week - 18 to 22 June 2018

Sports’ Week

What a fantastic week we have had! The weather held out for us and we have had some amazing experiences. All children got to take part in trips, allowing them to experience activities they might not have done before. We also made sure to keep up the healthy living, with in-school activities including “Teeth talk”, “Get Active” and even a healthy recipe creation.


All of Nursery and Reception (and some of Year 6) had a go at horse riding. They were shown different skills (dependant on age) as well as taught about horse-care and grooming.

Some children went to take part in the high ropes challenge – many of them faced fears and overcame personal barriers. Those who had been before showed progress in their skills too.

One of our trips was ghyll scrambling – which proved to be a huge success. The children showed great determination and skill as they traversed the streams and fells.

Years 1 & 2 took part in an indoor rock climb, with all of them displaying a great sense of pride in their accomplishments of reaching new heights (please excuse the pun!)

Paddle-boarding was an amazing experience. All of the children who took part demonstrated great concentration levels and balancing skills. They also got to learn some history and geography alongside this!

The Voyager trip was great fun; again, the children learned a great deal about the local area, whilst improving their teamwork and rowing skills.

Canoeing was an exciting event, with many of the children overcoming nerves and actually enjoying the experience!


A huge well done to all of the children, who have pushed and challenged themselves in new areas, as well as doing us proud in representing the school with fantastic behaviour within the community.


I’m looking forward to next year’s adventures already
