We were all so very proud of Reception this week when they took part in sports day for the very first time. The enthusiasm, determination and perseverance that our youngest children demonstrated was inspirational and a pleasure to witness. Thank you to all the parents who attended their very first event in a socially distanced manner, it was wonderful to be able to welcome you this morning and we hope you enjoyed it as much as the children. Well done Reception - YOU ARE ALL STARS!!

Cricket skills in Year 6
During our PE lessons this half term, Year 6 are developing their understanding and the skills required in cricket. Firstly, the children explored different types of throwing like: underarm, overarm and bowling. As the children became more confident with their throwing, they began to explore how accuracy can be used when throwing and catching. In their most recent lesson, the children learnt how to bat and the skills required to hit the ball accurately. All the children are looking forward to developing their understanding of this sport as the term progresses.

Year 6 - PE Across the Curriculum - Leeds United Centenary
On Monday 30th September, six very lucky members of Year 6 visited The Centenary Pavilion at Elland Road to share the research and project the whole class have been working on to mark Leeds United's Centenary. For the last two weeks, the children have been inspired by Albert Johanneson (the first Black African to play in the FA Cup final in 1965 for Leeds) and have worked in groups to find out about more inspirational Leeds players from around the globe. In addition, everyone has been raiding their attics to find all their Leeds memorabilia and we created our own Leeds United museum filled with shirts, programmes, scarves, balls and much more. Marching on Together!
