Lunch Time Clubs
Year 5 have been trained up to become lunchtime leaders alongside the current year 6 children. They have learned a number of different games and how to lead them, practiced their leadership skills and thought of new ideas for our lunchtimes.

A group of our year 4 children took part in a dodgeball day last week along with 14 other schools. Out of 120 children we got to the quarter finals! The morning consisted of skill work, team work and then dodgeball practise before an afternoon of competitive games against schools from across West Yorkshire.
Children across school took part in a number of table cricket sessions on Tuesday 5th December. This sport is inclusive for all. The children had to use their maths skills, communication and team work to allow the games to flow - the children loved it!

Congratulations to Summer Watson for winning the after school club certificate and medal for KS2 multi sports. Summer was chosen for showing determination, playing fairly and being a superb team player. Well done!
Congratulations to some of our year 5 children for taking part in and passing the Bikeability Road Safety Course.

Bikeability is based on the government approved National Standards for Cycle Training, which teaches trainees the necessary skills to ride confidently on today's roads.

It is a life-long skill that can be instilled at a young age or developed for the first time in adulthood, encouraging a healthy lifestyle, boosting confidence and developing independence.

Bikeability is the public face of National Standard Cycle Training and is used by schemes and instructors who have registered to deliver Bikeability by meeting certain minimum standards. Scheme registration is part of the quality-assurance process to help ensure organisations are delivering best-practice cycle training.

There are three award levels for Bikeability, with a level to suit all abilities, from beginner to experienced commuter or rider:
