29.11.23- Year 4 Benchball Tournament

28.09.23- Year 6 Football Tournament

On Thursday evening, eight boys from Year 6 attended a Football tournament at The Snaith School. This was a great experience for all involved, with all showing great enthusiasm and teamwork throughout. We warmed up well beforehand and managed to win our first game 1-0! After a rest in-between games, we narrowly lost our other two games 1-0 and 2-1. It really was a pleasure to watch the boys working so hard and encouraging each other, but also showing brilliant sportsmanship towards our opposition teams. We finished in a very respectable 3rd place. Well done boys!

Thursday 8th June- Sports Day 2023

Yesterday saw us hold our annual sports day for 2023. There was a great atmosphere in school, as the children were very excited before and during the events. Each house team from KS1 and KS2 took part in a range of different activities and races where they earnt as many points as possible for their team. Everyone tried their best and we are all very proud of the children for their efforts and for the way that they supported and encouraged each other throughout the afternoon. It was amazing to see so many parents, grandparents and family friends supporting, cheering and taking part in the mums and dads races! A huge thank you to the FHS and to Mr Bird, who supported our sports day by providing much needed refreshments and ice lollies for the children after the event. A massive thank you must also go to the staff who helped to organise the day and for running the events. If you were unable to attend the event, then I am sure you are eagerly anticipating the results. Mrs James and Mrs Hiorns did an amazing job at totaling the scores and it was VERY close. Purple Calder completed a clean sweep winning both the KS1 and KS2 trophies for their overall points. Well done to everyone and thank you once again!

The first two games were incredibly close, with us losing out by just one point on each. The children continued to show resilience and enthusiasm for the remaining two games, resulting in us finishing in 5th place.

Sport's Day 2021

On Friday 2nd July, we held our whole school annual Sport’s Day. However, due to following recent Government Guidelines, it looked a bit different this year. The children were still able to enjoy taking part in lots of their favourite Sport’s Day activities in their own class bubbles. Mr Holt kindly hosted the competitions with the help of our school adults. It was fantastic to see all of our children engaged and collaborating in their house teams in the different events and happily receiving their celebratory stickers.

At the end of the day, we held an assembly on the school field to celebrate the achievements of the children and announce the overall winners. It was lovely to have our whole school back together and praising each other’s successes.

Our overall winners were:

Key Stage One : Green Derwent

Key Stage Two : Blue Aire

Please take a look at a selection of images below. I’m sure you can see how much fun the children had and thank you for everyone’s efforts during the day.
