Other sporting news from Mrs Rowntree…

A huge well done to the netball teams that went to Joseph Rowntree School before the Easter break. The children representing Dunnington demonstrated some excellent skills against strong opposition from across the York schools. Miss Dickenson and I were very proud of them all finishing in 3rd and 8th place. Thanks to the parents for their support with transport and support!

We also had success with another Y3/4 Dodgeball competition last night and the team won all of their games so watch this space for more details! A great performance and thank you to Mr Sellers for accompanying the team. Please can any Y4 parents who have not returned their slip and payment for swimming do so as soon as possible. Thank you!Mrs Rowntree

Dance Workshops

This week, Mrs Rowntree used some of our sports premium budget to arrange a Dance Day, which was delivered by the amazing York Dance Space. York Dance Space currently run or incredibly popular after school club, which is already full for this half-term! Mrs Rowntree was keen to give all the children the opportunity to experience a dance workshop and give the teachers the chance to observe really effective dance teaching.

The pupils had great fun experimenting with different styles of dance, performing lifts and dancing to fabulous music whilst developing their rhythmical skills. The teachers deepened their understanding of curriculum dance and it has been wonderful to hear the children so excited about their workshops!
