The Year 5/6 tennis team took part in the York Schools festival on Thursday. The mixed team got through their league stage with confident wins over Clifton with Rawcliffe, Headlands and Robert Wilkinson. All four played some brilliant tennis and the level of skill on show was superb.
We narrowly lost out to the Wigginton team in the final but came away with a fantastic 2nd place!
We took 5 children to a festival of sport which was held at Dunnington Sports Club on Thursday; it was a fantastic event and over 30 schools attended.
As you can see from the photos, the children (and their teachers!) had lots of fun trying out different adapted activities from Boccia, inflatable football, cycling, rugby and martial arts.
We took 39 KS2 children to a taster triathlon event at York Sport. This was organised by the Brownlee Trust and a way of getting as many children as possible trying this exciting sport. Over 1000 children were involved in one day!
All the children had a fabulous time in this very well organised event and were rewarded with a goodie bag, a smoothie and a Brownlee swim hat to keep.
Emma in Y6 has been selected by the Yorkshire Cricket Board to take part in their girls winter training programme. A fantastic achievement and a great reward for all her hard work. Well Done!

A talented group of Year 2 children attended the Rapid Fire cricket festival held at Fulford Secondary School this week. They played 4 games beating Badger Hill, Osbaldwick (2 teams) and Elvington. It is a very fast paced game which requires strong teamwork and decisive batting to succeed. The children all performed brilliantly. Well done!
18 of our Year 6 children took part in an Indoor Athletics event at Fulford Secondary school this week. They put a brilliant sporting display of talent competing in both team and individual challenges ranging from obstacle courses to standing triple jump. Dunnington came a very impressive 2nd place for their hard work and were an absolute pleasure to accompany to this exciting festival. Well done!
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.
