This week the children had a fantastic opportunity to take part in R.E workshops based around the Indian festival of colour, ‘Holi’. Kalpesh from K’z Dance Entertainment Ltd taught all the children some traditional Indian dances and discussed with them the meaning of the Holi festival. At the end of the day the whole school came together and performed the dances taught earlier in the day, the children and staff had some wonderful moves! At the end of the performance everyone took part in throwing colourful dyes at one another to celebrate Holi, just like it is carried out in India.
Our brilliant Upper Key Stage Two Boys’ Football Team continued this season’s fantastic run of results with another thrilling display at today’s Bart Rippon Cup event at Temple Park. Having qualified for the semi-final stage during the morning fixtures, the boys then made it through to this afternoon’s final with a narrow 1-0 victory over Harton. The final was another closely-contested game which eventually went to a dreaded penalty shoot-out! By a whisker, we were defeated by St. Matthew’s, who went away as today’s cup winners – congratulations to them and well done to all of the children who represented their schools today.
I am so proud of the players’ efforts and attitude to finish runners-up – you are all a credit to yourselves and it was a pleasure to take you there today. Well done boys!
2 Red have connected their PE and Science this week. In Science, we have been finding out about the human body and what it needs to stay healthy. Part of keeping healthy was all about getting at least 60 minutes of exercise each day and making sure we do enough physical activities to cover this. To raise our heart rates we learned and practiced some new skills in PE. 2 Red showed excellent communication, teamwork and determination all week!
Isla, who plays for Jarrow Lionesses Under 8’s, has helped her team to win the league and cup in their first season together. She has been resilient, prepared and brave when playing in every game, which are the traits we use everyday in year 3 as an adventurer.
We are very proud of you Isla, Keep it up!
