Some Year 3 and Year 4 children took part in a Cricket Skills Festival on Tuesday at Archbishop Holgate’s School. They had a good time practising their bowling, batting and throwing skills and then played some small sided games. A great opportunity to get involved in the game of cricket and prepare for the summer season ahead. Well done to Sebastian, Charlie, Jack M, Jack W, Libby, Charlotte, Ryan, Oscar and Ollie!
19 children took part in the Indoor Sportshall Athletics event at Huntington Secondary School this week. It is always a fabulous afternoon with lots of field and track events accompanied by a very loud speaker system with music to get the children going! The Dunnington team competed with superb resiliance and brilliant teamwork. After many races, including the obstacle sprint, under and over relay and the 6 Lap Paarlauf and some exciting field events, we got 200
points and came 3rd! A lovely afternoon and thank you to the parents who transported the children during the school day to allow the children chance to take part in this exciting opportunity!
WELL DONE DUNNINGTON!
Gymnastics after school on Friday 16th November and Friday 23rd November have been postponed as the school hall is in use for Movie Nights. These sessions will take place on Friday 11th and Friday 18th January 2019 instead.
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.
The Dunnington reds won all their matches and qualified to the final. They were an extremely strong team and displayed excellent passing and shooting skills.
Unfortunately, the final result was 1-0 to Wheldrake; this was disappointing but they had played their best throughout.
The first game was against the Dunnington reds! Unfortunately, the Dunnington reds were a strong team and the first match was lost. The second game was lost too but they managed a draw in the third match and shooter Freddie M scored. In the fourth game the blues won by 2-0 with two amazing shots by the shooter Evan R. In the fifth game it was another win with star shooter Isobel D scoring the winning goal at the last minute.
In the first match the blues won 3-1 against Bishopthorpe with Charlie N opening the score. Although a goal was conceded, Raffi B scored two outstanding goals to wrap up the game. The next two matches were won with Sam T scoring in the second game and Harrison B scoring in the last. Unfortunately, the team was all boys which meant that they couldn’t qualify; however, it was an overall brilliant performance. Match reports by: Evan, Isobel, Sam, Charlie, Raffi, Harrison and Will
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!
