Well done everyone!

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!

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:
