FA Schools Football Day
On Wednesday 26th May, every child in the school took part in ‘Schools Football Day’. Up and down the country, hundreds and thousands of school children took part in an event organised by the Football Association (FA) to celebrate our national game. The FA hoped to create the ‘world’s biggest football match’ by having children from schools across the UK all playing at the same time.
It was a fantastic day that wasn’t ruined despite the inevitable waterlogged fields and the children all had the opportunity to learn new skills and play small-sided matches against their classmates. Hundreds of goals were scored, several fouls were committed and one or two bumps were endured but all in all, everybody had a great time.
The day was centred on the FA’s desire to push their RESPECT campaign, which is also a core value we uphold here at Lostock Hall. Despite the matches having a ‘competitive edge’, which Inter Milan ultimately won, the most important aspect of the day was that the children had fun and played the game in the correct manner, which they all did! It was also wonderful to see so many different shirts on the day (albeit a shortage of Burnley ones!)!
Thank you for all of your support,
Mr. Law and Mr. Jardine.
Please have a look at some of the photos below:

Inter School Tennis Competition
A group of Year Three and Four children went to South Ribble Tennis Centre. We got into our school teams and had a quick warm up, rallying with each other, before starting the competition. Each team consisted of two boys and two girls. The teams played against each other and the first person who scored eight, won the game. The three groups with the highest scores, played in the semi final. The final match was played and the winner of the competition received a trophy. Unfortunately, we didn't make it to the finals- but we had a really good time!

High 5 Netball
During the first part of the summer term the netball team attended the high 5 netball tournament which was run over 3 evenings at Lostock Hall Academy. The team played well and although we didn't finish as high up the table as we had hoped we still enjoyed all of our games and displayed excellent sportsmanship and teamwork throughout.
Well done everyone!
More Success for the Year 3-4 Athletics Team
Back in the Autumn, you may remember that the lower key stage 2 athletics team won silver medals at the sports hall athletics competition. Well the good news is that outdoors the team were able to go one better by winning gold at the 'Quadkids' competition, securing their place at the Lancashire School Games finals in July.
Well done to all athletes! A fantastic achievement!
South Ribble 'Quicksticks' Tournament (2)
Well done to the team who attended the second 'Quicksticks' event of the year, at Walton le Dale High School, on Tuesday 7th May. The team played very well against some tough opposition. We grew in confidence in each and every game and managed to score a super goal in the final game of the tournament. Well Done!
Well done to Liam from year 5 who recently won the Mid Lancashire Cup with his team, Lostock Hall Stripes. The final was a tense affair ending in a penalty shoot out.
South Ribble Schools Quicksticks Tournament
On Tuesday 2nd April a team of six KS2 children took part in the South Ribble quicksticks tournament at Walton-le-Dale High School. The children worked really hard as a team and tried hard in all of their games. They had very little experience of hockey (especially on astroturf) and grew in confidence as we got further into the tournament, we saved our best performance for the final game, earning a 1-1 draw.
Well done to all players!
Dance from the Heart Leader Training
This year's Dance from the heart event is quickly approaching, this years theme is space. In preparation for the event a group of Year 6 leaders were selected to help the whole school to learn the dance. The leaders attended an afternoon of training at Cuerden Church School and were much more competent than Miss Bell when performing the routine! We look forward to seeing the leaders assisting the younger children.
Celebration of Girls Football
On Wednesday 27th March the girls football team were given a real treat. They were invited to spectate at the National Schools Cup Final at Mill Farm Sport Village, home to AFC Fylde. We had a lovely afternoon watching some inspirational performances from both teams. In the end the team from Thomas Telford School were crowned National Champions, much to the delight of their very loud supports.
The girls behaved impeccably and were, once again, a credit to the school!
Year 2 Dodgeball
Afterschool on Thursdays this term, 20 children across Year 2 took part in dodgeball club. The children had great fun in firing balls at each other and subsequently trying to dodge them. They also enjoyed pelting Mr Law at every opportunity and any other misfortunate members of staff who entered the hall whilst they were mid-game. Here are some photos of our Year 2 dodgeballers in action:
South Ribble Gymnastics Festival
On Tuesday 19th March a team of 6 gymnasts from Years 3 and 4 took part in a festival of gymnastics at Walton-le-Dale High School.
The girls were able to take part in a range of different gymnastics related challenged including trampolining, vaulting and balancing. The final part of the morning was a display of routines from each of the schools in attendance. Our girls performed brilliantly and some of the skills on show were incredible!
Well Done girls.

Well done to all four children who took part.
Silver Medals for Lostock Hall Athletes

Some impressive performances were on display as schools battled it out in 3 different heats. Once the competition was over it was time for the, all important, results. We are pleased to say that we finished a very impressive second out of 14 schools from South Ribble.
