On 9th October 2019, 30 children from Years 4, 5 and 6 participated in a cross country competition held at Brigshaw High School. The children represented Primrose Lane excellently; showing impeccable behaviour, fabulous sportsmanship and great perseverance.
All the children put in their best efforts and cheered each other through every race! It was fabulous to watch the children make their best efforts to do their personal bests in the race.
We have now received results to suggest that our Year 4 Girls, Year 4 Boys Year 5 Girls and Year 6 Boys have all qualified to the City Finals in February 2020! Although, Year 5 Boys and Year 6 Girls didn’t make it through, they are ran their hearts out and achieved some excellent results. Additionally, we had some wildcards with for those that didn’t get through, where Kodee and George from Year 5 and Charlotte from Year 6 go through to represent themselves individually. Congratulations to all competitors! There must be particular mentions for both Year 4 Boys and Year 5 Girls who won their groups by a large margin! Additionally, congratulations must go to Sam A and Isaac A individually for coming first in the race for their whole age group, as well as Top 10s for Toby, April, Kodee, Florence, Ellie, Henry M and Jacob! Thank you to all the Parents/Carers who turned up on the day to show their support (and get soaking wet!) and help Mr Jackson and Ms Harper with the team. We look forward for next round to do it all again, but until then, well done competitors!
Rosie - 'My favourite part was taking part in the assembly'
Isobel - 'I loved listening for the click of the rope and skipping by myself'
Harrison - 'I liked learning how to skip’
Year 2 really enjoyed their skipping festival day! They can't wait to take part in the competition next year. Callum and Isla were really proud of themselves for performing in the skipping assembly later that day. Brandon said he couldn't skip but by the end of the session he was smiling from ear to ear because he had managed to do some jumps through the skipping rope.
April R - ‘I enjoyed skipping and I got really excited when Jodi chose me to do backwards butterfly in assembly.’
Maddie - ‘I really like skipping and it was really fun – especially the group activities keep the pot boiling, red arrows and run jump out.’
Thomas - ‘ I was really nervous in assembly when me and Louis had to do butterfly forwards.’
Ella - ‘I found it really fun and it didn’t matter if you got chosen or not!’
Amelia – ‘I enjoyed skipping with Jodie because I got to do the ‘Keep the Pot Boiling’ task. My favourite skip was the backwards pretzel.’
Florence – ‘I really enjoyed the skipping; I learnt a new trick and got to perform a trick in assembly.’
Jess B – ‘I enjoyed the whole school assembly when we were skipping because it was good exercise, fun and a great opportunity!’
Christian – ‘I enjoyed doing the ‘Texas Star’ with the long rope. I wish we had more time to do even more!’
Hannah – ‘I really enjoyed the skipping, although we didn’t get to see Mrs McTaggart (as she works for Jodie now!). Jodie was pleased to see us and I did the ‘Double Bounce’ in the assembly!’
On Thursday afternoon, Mr Simpson put Year 3 through their paces with an hour long Commando Fitness Session. The children (and Mrs Turnbull!) had great fun in the mud completing a range of exercises - burpees, sit ups, leg raises, commando crawling and jogging to name a few! They then did a stretcher drill, a wall climb and finished off with a tug of war. The children showed their true Primrose Lane Learner attributes demonstrating enthusiasm, collaborative learning and ambition.
