The boys were selected from approximately 60 pupils to represent the Under 11s York Schoolboys team. We are very proud of their achievements and will follow their success closely.
The Y3/4 hockey team came 7th in the new Quicksticks competition. This was held at Vale of York Secondary School on the 12th October. A fantastic achievement and great fun!
We are celebrating after being awarded a Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack!
The pack contains 15 Nike size 4 footballs, a new Nike football bag, 16 bibs, 6 hoops, 10 numbered cones, alphabet floor markers, a ball pump, 5 large bouncy dice and resource cards to use in delivering fun, cross curricular games lessons.
The Kit and Equipment Scheme forms part of the Premier League Primary Stars offer to primary schools in England and Wales. This is a curriculum-linked education programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and its clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
Delivered by the Football Foundation, the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme gives teachers a range of equipment that can be used across different curriculum areas to get children active.
Also available is a free downloadable suite of resources for teachers across Key Stages 1 and 2 in English, Maths, PE and PSHE. The easy-to-use materials have been developed in partnership with education organisations including the National Literacy Trust and the PSHE Association.
Mathematician Rachel Riley and children’s authors Cressida Cowell and Dan Freedman also helped to create the teaching packs, which use real life sport examples to put lessons into a relevant and engaging context for children.
We initially heard about this opportunity through our links with York City and I put a bid together based on us aiming to raise activity levels both within curriculum PE time and at playtimes. I used some of the new equipment with a group of Y1 children this week and it provided a great warm up game, encouraging them to raise their heart rates whilst finding letters of the alphabet and doing simple maths to find the correct number marker to stand on. Hopefully all your children will find some cross curricular PE lessons just as fun!
A fantastic start to the year with 12 cross country runners taking part in the York Schools event in September. A massive well done to Will C in Year 6 who came 6th and qualified for the North Yorkshire School finals in March at Dalby Forest.
A big well done to the Y5/6 football team on their triumphant success in coming top of the York Schools league. A fantastic achievement!
We had 8 runners in KS2 who all took part in the cross country North Yorkshire finals at Dalby Forest in March. Superb efforts from all involved and thank you to the parents for taking time out to get them…

The school netball teams took part in the cluster finals and despite winning a number of matches they unfortunately didn’t qualify for the York finals. However, many of the 2 teams were Year 5 pupils who have only had 2 terms of netball coaching and the progress they have made is brilliant.
I am looking forward to next season to build on that progress!
I had the pleasure of taking 6 pupils to a fantastic inclusive sports day at Queen Margaret’s School in Escrick. This was a lot of fun and the children had a fantastic time trying out archery, blindfolded activities and bouncing…

A team of very enthusiastic Year 6 girls attended a football event with me in April. On a very cold and wet day they had a brilliant time enjoying various coaching sessions with York City and York College students. They played small matches against other local schools and learned more about the popular game. The girls approached the whole day with a smile on their faces and were a pleasure to take out of school.
