Dunnington vs Lord Deramore’s Match Report

Last Friday saw a double header for the footballers. The A team, who needed to win to book their place in the finals, were up first. A great team display displayed the determination and skill the team play with. Two goals in both halves lead to a fantastic 4-0 win. On the day Zac and Ben RG both got a brace each to ensure Dunnington A are on their way to the finals!

In the second game our B team took to the pitch looking for their first win of the season. In a changed formation of three at the back the team looked comfortable and dominated possession. They had lots of chances to take the lead but were denied by good defending and great keeping. As the game went on it started to feel like we would never get that illusive goal! However, with time running out Dan S got the ball and shot into the bottom corner. This was followed by wild celebrations once the final whistle blew. They had their first ever win!

A thank you to all that came and supported and Dave Scoreby who took the time out to help run the team on the day.Mr Gargiulo

Dunnington’s Smart School Council

This term our school council will look slightly different… We have joined an exciting project called Smart School Councils where the key ethos is that every child has a voice and any idea is worth sharing.

  • School council meetings are held in every classroom which means every child’s voice is heard
  • Our existing school council representatives will make up our Communications Team. However, even if children aren’t on the Communication Team, they still have the opportunity to make a difference by joining an Action Team enabling them to lead change.
  • Action teams explore the feasibility of introducing change, giving ownership of projects to the children.

To find out more, you can visit Smart School Councils here: https://home.smartschoolcouncils.org.uk/ 

We look forward to sharing with you the exciting ideas the children wish to explore to make our school even better.

Triathlon reminder for KS2

Please send permission and photo slips back by Tuesday 3rd May if your child is interested in a place in this exciting event. Names will be drawn on that morning and confirmation sent to those who have been given a place. If your child does not bring a confirmation slip home then this means they do not have a place on this occasion. Unfortunately, places are limited and we will keep a waiting list in case anyone drops out.

Sports Fixtures

We played two teams from St Aelred’s Primary School and both matches were a superb display of skill, commitment and team work. The children have worked so hard in training sessions and this paid off in their performance on the courts. A 4-1 win in the first game and a 7-1 win in the second game. Our players of the matches were Freya M and Ben R. Thank you to all the parents who came to support the teams.

It has been fabulous to see some of our Y5 and 6 girls enjoying their football sessions with Rosie Todd this year and great to see pupils involved in school based competitive sport again! The team lost 1- 0 to St Wilfred’s School and 2-0 to Lord Deramore’s School. Player of the matches was Evie S in goal putting on a brilliant display of action. Well done to all the girls involved and thank you to the parents for the transport and support.
