We had a lovely relaxing start to the week on Tuesday. We re-visited some of the position from last year and will be building upon these in Year 5. Some of us have chosen to take home the positions to practise. Take a look ….. (why not have a go!)
The staff and children of Key Stage One hope you all enjoyed Sports Day as much as we did. We’re sure you can agree that the children should be very proud of how hard they worked in that scorching heat! The boys and girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves – especially seeing their adults trying to hurdle.
Here are just some of the hundreds of photos we took for you to enjoy! 🙂
This week we have been developing our maths strategies for division. We began the week using concrete apparatus, we quickly moved onto using place value counters and exchanging. By the end of the week we can use visual representations to divide numbers even when there’s a cheeky remainder!
Miss Curwen has worked with us this half term on gymnastics and was very proud of our final body management performance this week.
What a wonderful afternoon! The children had a fantastic time in the sunshine taking part in our annual EYFS games day.
They took turns to…
– Race with the bikes
– Climb the obstacle frame
– Fill the water bucket
– Hook the ducks
– Balance the egg and spoon
– Collect the fish at the seaside
– Balance a beanbag
– Bounce on the space hoppers
…and beat the goalie!
We were very proud of the children who put in 100% and showed super sportsmanship!
Thank you to all the adults who came to cheer us on, especially those who took part themselves 🙂
On Tuesday we took our gymnastics squad along to the Greater Manchester Winter Games. For the second year running we took along all three age groups to represent Salford. The squad consisted of 3 teams of mixed year groups. They were:
|Years 1 and 2||Years 3 and 4||
Years 5 and 6
It was a tough competition against 8 other boroughs from Greater Manchester. All the children performed their routines perfectly and we knew it was going to be close. The results were as follows:
Y1/2 came 3rd with Lena winning an individual Bronze medal
Y3/4 came 2nd with Alex winning an individual silver medal and Nyah a gold medal
Y5/6 came 1st with Lucy winning an individual gold medal.
It was a fantastic achievement and even Beth Tweddle came over and said how impressed she was!
I would just like to thank all the children for their hard work. Also a big thank you to the parents for their support with the early morning training sessions.

This afternoon we were visited by Olympic medallist and world champion Beth Tweddle! She watched the school gymnastics team practise their routine and gave them some top tips. Our amazing gymnastics were delighted to see her and will no doubt take inspiration when they complete in the Key Step gymnastic competition on Monday.
Today, while the sun was shining, we took the opportunity to have our School Games Day! We had a super morning each team completing the 5 events to earn points for their team. It was very close but congratulations go to the Orange team, our overall winners. Well done everyone, a great team spirit and atmosphere. Hope you enjoyed your ice pop too!
