As you can tell from the picture it went a bit dark, but our girls football team showed great team spirit and played some excellent football to win their first two league matches of the season vs Goosnargh and Holy Family Primary Schools 2-0 and 3-0 to put them top of the table early on in the season. It was great to see them all celebrating with each other after scoring goals and winning the matches. Well done girls!
We recently received a trophy in school after last year’s netball team finished top of their league for the 2017/18 season. Mrs Giles and some of the girls from last year’s team were on hand to celebrate their success and pose with the trophy.
Our netball team played their first matches of the new season last night vs Ashton and Whitechapel Primary schools, winning one match 1-0 and losing the other 3-1. The girls showed great team spirit it two closely contested matches and were unlucky to not get more points out of the games.
Premier League Primary Stars
6 of our year 2 children went to Archbishop Temple High School to compete in a Premier League Primary Stars competition. The children had to compete in a variety of races and throwing and catching games to score points for their team, competing against 37 other teams at the event. They all competed with confidence and skill in all the events finishing 3rd in one of the races, and finishing with our schools largest points tally to date. Well Done to all of them!
Well done to our 8 girls from year 5 and 6 who competed in a gymnastics competition at City of Preston Gymnastics Club. Each girl had to learn and perform a floor sequence and a vault sequence in front of the panel of judges for which they all received a score for the individual and school competitions. All of the girls scored over 7.5/10 for their floor routine and over 8/10 on their vault routine.
Bob Alexander Memorial Triathlon 2018
6 of our Year 6 children took part in this year's Bob Alexander Memorial Triathlon, where they had to complete a variety of gym exercises including sit ups, chest passes, bench swings and speed bounce, a timed 25 meter swim and a timed run. The children gave their all in every event and showed many of our school values including determination and resilience to stick at the tasks throughout, and ended up bettering our school results from last year's competition.
