Sainsburys School Games: Gold Award 2021-22!

Over this academic year, I’m sure your children have enjoyed participating and competing in various sports and small games, as well as learning within their two hours of PE per week. There is now a more of a focus than ever on PE and Sport in all schools, not just to encourage healthy active lifestyles, but also to develop the children’s social and emotional enjoyment, which has been shown to link to success within other areas of the curriculum.

This year, again, primary schools have received funding called Sport Premium, which is ring-fenced and can only be used to specifically develop Physical Education (PE), sport and physical activity in school. After an evaluation, schools have then been awarded a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum award or nothing at all within the Sainsbury’s School Games Quality Mark. The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success, now it has started again after the COVID-19 disruption.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfill criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded again this year.

Following our recent application, Primrose Lane is very proud to announce that we achieved the Gold for the Sainsburys School Games Quality Mark, maintaining our award, which is a fantastic achievement for a small school!

We would like to congratulate all staff and children for their efforts and cooperation within PE and Sport and hope it continues to progress further. Congratulations have also been received from our School Games Organiser Shaun Mulhern.

If you have any questions or suggestions of ways of further developing the PE and Sport here at Primrose Lane, please come and see Mr Jackson (PE and Sport Coordinator).

Year 4 Skipping Competition Success!

On Monday morning, we walked up to Boston Academy to take part in the skipping competition that we have been working hard towards. The first part of the day involved a huge group skipping warm up with the other five schools taking part, before we then embarked upon the individual skills. We then did our group skips 'run jump out' and 'keep the pot boiling' before finishing the morning with our skip dance.

We managed to skip our way to victory, coming away with three bronze, five silver and six gold medals putting us in first place overall. A brilliant morning had by all, here are some of our highlights:
Sebastian - I really enjoyed when I did my part in the side straddle and also when we did 'keep the pot boiling'
Sam - I enjoyed that we were the only school doing a skip dance (even if we did mess up a little bit!)
Noah - I liked it when we all celebrated when Chris announced that we had won the competition!
Herbie - It was brilliant to watch the other schools perform. I am glad we won the trophy and got lots of gold medals!
Evie - I liked it when I did my double bounce and we were even the first people up!!
Rupert - I really enjoyed doing the crossover.

WVLP Cup Winners!

Within our Wharfe Valley Learning Partnership of local schools, we have played in a knock-out cup and both our Girls and Boys teams got into the finals, played at Deighton Gates.
The Boys played some great football against Bardsey and Deighton Gates, coming third in a thrilling penalty shoot-out third-place playoff, where the team showed composure under pressure to deliver the goals, but also Charlie showed excellent goalkeeping and flair saving penalties.
The Girls won their first match 1-0 against Deighton Gates, progressing to the overall final against Bardsey, where they were losing 1-0 until the last few minutes of the game. Despite dominating the majority of the game, Primrose couldn’t find the net, until just before the finish, April struck a pearl into the top corner – penalties it was! Again, it was a thriller, with well-composed strikes and bravery to put themselves forward in such a tense encounter. In the end, through some excellent converted penalties and ‘the cat’ Elizabeth saving most of the opposition’s penalties, Primrose were victorious and took home the cup –well done girls!

National School Sports Week 2022 - Belonging!

After another disrupted year in which young people have missed out on so much, sport and physical activity has played an essential role in their recovery, particularly in National School Sports Week here at Primrose Lane.

National School Sport Week 2022 celebrated the return of youth sport and its power to bring people back together and give EVERY CHILD A PLACE IN SPORT, with a week of activity days dedicated to sport held up and down the country. The theme of this year’s campaign was ‘Belonging’ and we at Primrose Lane participated and competed in an array of activities to help celebrate this and ensure every child had an opportunity every day to experience sport and fun activities.

Across the week, children enjoyed a range of activities and sports competitions, ranging from table tennis, football, dance, orienteering, cross country, rounders and many more! Below are a selection of pictures which demonstrate our engagement and enjoyment – well done to all! On top of this, there were various challenges (such as the 60 second challenges, Commando Fitness, Rounders and obviously the regular PE lessons as usual) which the children embraced – let’s just hope this all continues and children continue to enjoy a healthy, active, fun lifestyle!

Here is what the different Year groups did to participate and enjoy National School Sports Week 2022:

Year 1:
We have done a lot of the BBC Super mover activities before many of our lessons, especially in Maths when we did exercises to counting forward and backwards form 100.
Everley – ‘I think it is really good.’
Gracie – ‘It is very nice to do.’
James – ‘It makes me feel happy and it is so much fun.’
Seth – ‘I liked the sports leaders as I played my favourite game of basketball.’
Mia – ‘It helps you keep healthy.’

Year 2:
Year 2 had a fantastic time celebrating National School Sports Week. We rotated between four groups learning about the benefits and different positions in Yoga, understanding the power of balance, core strength and breathing. Our four leaders India, Arthur, Lillie and Finley developed super leadership skills in demonstrating each position and feeding back to their peers to improve. Well done Year 2!

Year 3:
Maddie – ‘In commando fitness I enjoyed the game of tug of war and the races.’
Jemima – ‘My favourite in commando fitness was the bit when we did the full obstacle course and the bit when we went over and under and along the ladders.
Alice – ‘I thought the obstacle course was really good fun.’
Daniel – ‘I thought commando fitness was great and it was hilarious when I got carried on the stretcher!’
Alexander – ‘I really enjoyed playing tug of war and mostly everything we did!’
Esme – ‘I really enjoyed tug of war. I loved it when we played with the parachute this week too.’

Year 4:
As part of national school sport’s week, Year 4 enjoyed a commando fitness session. They demonstrated fantastic teamwork, resilience and perseverance throughout. Here are some of our thoughts:

Hughie: ‘I really enjoyed being on the stretcher.’
Herbie: ‘The tug of war was really challenging. We had to pull the team of Year 4, Mr Simpson and Miss Palfreeman!’
Rupert: ‘I enjoyed doing the course and jumping over the box.’
Evie: ‘It was really fun doing tug of war and when the other team pulled us and we all fell over.’
Maddie: ‘I really liked when we worked as a team and got through all the obstacle courses.'

Years 5 and 6:
Years 5 and 6 enjoyed 60 second challenges, competitions in table tennis, football, dance, rounders, athletics and various other activities, including 28 different individual challenges of their choice. Congratulations to Toby who won the table tennis competition with Matthew runner up; to April for the keepie-uppie competition and April, Melody and Thomas T for the dance competition – a great display of participation and engagement by all!

Charlotte: ‘I found that I wasn't very good at table tennis at the beginning but after a bit of practise I improved. I really enjoyed playing and will definitely play again.’
Phoebe: ‘Table tennis was very hard. I thought the aim was to hit the ball but I seemed to fail at that!!! However, I improved and tried my level best and actually hit the ball a bit!’
Thomas B: ‘In table tennis we learned how to hit the ball properly and also we used small tables so we really couldn't hit the ball properly and there was a competition and Toby won beating Isaac in the final. It was really fun!’

KS2 Gems Rounders Competition

On Friday 24th June 2022, KS2 had a Gems Rounders Competition, whereby each Gem group (from Emerald, Sapphire, Ruby, Amber and Amethyst) played each other in order to be crowned the Gem winners! The preliminary rounds were very exciting, with all teams scoring some great rounders, making good catches and fielding like they were pro’s!

Having collected results, the winners were Sapphire!

Here is a picture of them celebrating below; congratulations go to them for working well as a team.

Primrose Lane Double Gala Winners!

On Saturday 11th of June 2022, Primrose Lane fielded 5 teams in the Boston Spa Gala, involving 16 boys across A, B and C teams, as well as 10 girls across A and B teams. It is my pleasure to report that both Boys and Girls A teams won their respective competitions!

Parents have reported back how brilliantly all teams did and how well the children behaved, conducted themselves, but most importantly, how they represented the school with pride. The children relished the opportunity to represent school and did the school proud. The boys A team scored 40 goals and conceded only 2 all tournament; and the girls A team scored 24 goals in only four games! The other teams had some great achievements with goals, great saves, good personal performances, but it wasn’t to be on the day.

A huge thank you must go out to the Parents who helped support the teams, managed them and were there throughout the competition, as without their support, the children wouldn’t have been able to compete – it is very much appreciated! Also, a thank you to Mr Clarke who led the Girls A team on the day and has led the Girls team all year; again, it is very much appreciated.

Here is what the children had to report about their experience:
‘On the 11th of June, our two girls teams took part in the football tournament at Boston Spa Gala 2022, at St Johns school. The A team included 5 girls: Nell, Elise, April, Elizabeth and Honour. The B team included: Heidi, Maddie G, Maddison, Izzy and Susie. The A team came home with a great victory, being the first girls football team at Primrose Lane to achieve a trophy. Unfortunately for the B team, both teams started off by playing each other, with the A team ending up winning 5-1, with an awesome goal from Susie and from the opposite team, Elise, Elizabeth and April - who scored 5 goals altogether. The A team then went on to play St Edwards, and Primrose got an amazing victory once again (8-0). While the B team played Riverside and sadly lost with a score of 3-1, another brilliant goal from Heidi. The A team then played Riverside with another brilliant win (3-1). Finally for the B team, their last played match was against St Edwards, and sadly lost (3-2) but with 2 more amazing goals – both from Heidi – one of which from a free kick! Finally, we headed over to the finals when the Primrose A team played Riverside and it was another great win from Primrose, with a score of 3-1. Primrose girls come home with the first ever school girls’ trophy and are very proud!’
Written by Honour and Izzy.

‘For the last six years, Primrose Lane Primary School have won the Boston Spa Gala Football Trophy, so last weekend, the pressure was on to keep the title. In the Gala, everybody tried their best and worked hard.
Primrose Lane boys had three teams (A, B and C), and the A Team went on to win the trophy playing some magnificent football.
The first few games were won easily with scores of 7-0, 8-0 and 9-0. The team were able to keep possession brilliantly, passed the ball round well and scored some great goals.
We were then through to the semi finals against Lady Hastings in Thorpe Arch. We were full of confidence at this point but it wasn’t so easy and we found ourselves 2-1 down after 5 minutes. However, our determination shone through and after pulling ourselves together we managed to turn things round and finished 6-2.
We were then onto the final, against St Edwards. Everyone was nervous and really wanted to win and although St Edwards played well, we managed to beat them 9-0! Everyone worked well as a team and together we scored some fantastic goals. What an achievement!! We were delighted to bring home the trophy for the 7th year running.
Well done to all the teams involved and thank you to all our supporters on the day.’
Written by Isaac (Squad: Isaac A, Charlie W, Jack M, Toby S, Matthew B, Charlie E).

Years 5 and 6 Greek Olympics!

Year 5 and Year 6 enjoyed a wonderful curriculum ‘Greek Day’. We were able to branch out in our learning and experience what it may have been like to transcribe and write in the Greek alphabet, make Greek hummus, eat other Greek food and compete in Gem groups to win our very own Greek Olympics!rnrnBelow, you can see groups competing with the javelin throw, as well as the discus, where we measured the distances and were able to identify the winners and calculate our personal bests. rnrnAdditionally, we competed in the ‘Legendary Long Jump’, again resulting in overall winners for the event and gaining our personal bests. We added in our own creative game, whereby we had to bounce the ball into the basket, which required estimation, precision and control, all of which the Greek Olympians required. Finally, we ran our own ‘Stadion’ running race to determine our personal best times with speed and power.rnrnOverall, the points were counted and the overall winners were Amber, so congratulations to those members! Having said this, the children showed good gamesmanship, team work (‘working together’) and ‘ambition’ - all of which we’ve worked on with our Primrose Lane Learner Values.rn

Brownlee Brothers Triathlon May 2022

All of Year 4 and Year 5 enjoyed an exciting morning at John Charles Centre for Sport at the Brownlee Brothers Triathlon event. The children arrived, equipped ready for an unforgettable experience, which began with a 50m swim, followed by a 300m run and 800m cycle. Once the Brownlee brothers had wished the children good luck via video link, they were ready and equipped to go!

The children were bursting with excitement, but once briefed at the beginning, were surprised to discover that they had to go straight from the pool, get changed into their sport gear and continue (without drying off!) with their cycle, followed by the run finish.

The whole of Year 4 and Year 5 thrived on the experience and went with it, all completing the stages and achieving a medal and goody bag.

Upon completion of the course the children congratulated each other on their successes and enjoyed refreshments from their goody bags whilst watching other schools reach the finish line.
All children behaved excellently and were a credit to Primrose Lane. Here’s what some of the children had to say about their experience:
Sophia – ‘I really enjoyed the experience because I love swimming and it was fun with the running and cycling. It was my first triathlon experience and I loved it!’
Finlay – ‘I loved doing the triathlon because it was my first time doing the triathlon and it was also my first time doing three events in a short period of time.’
Bella – ‘I liked that if you struggle to ride a bike, you got to use a scooter. I also liked the swimming part.’
Matthew – ‘It was a really fun experience to know what it felt like after doing a triathlon.’
Elliot – ‘I really enjoyed doing the triathlon: I enjoyed swimming, cycling and running.’

Sports Leaders Fun!

This half term, we have FINALLY been able to get our Sports Leaders up and running helping with active play-times, supporting the younger children with structured play and generally making lunch time more fun for lots of children in school! All children in Year 5 showed excellent attitudes in proactively wanting to become Sports Leaders, and wanted to go through the training to achieve this.
Since the start of this half term, each and every member of Year 5 have embraced their responsibility, been organised, prompt and relished the opportunity to wear their ‘Sports Leaders’ t-shirts! The younger children have shown great interest in the activities since they have been advertised and the daily rota of activities is now on-going until the end of the school year!
Here’s what some of the leaders have had to say so far:
Matthew – ‘The first session was a little chaotic and took a lot of effort – as there were an overload of children! It is a great thing to do during dinner time to make nobody feel lonely and give them an opportunity to play.’
Sophia – ‘I like being one of the Sports Leaders, because with the younger children, they may be lonely, but they have lots of fun and learn skills that they have never learnt before.’
Elizabeth – ‘I like having the responsibility to lead the younger children and help them enjoy their break-times.’

Pride of Primrose!

On Saturday 26th March, Elizabeth, Charlie and Isaac all represented West Yorkshire in the National Cross Country Finals in Leicester. This was due to their brilliant achievements and success in numerous rounds regionally beforehand. They represented themselves, as well as combined to make a West Yorkshire team. We are very proud of them as people, but also for their achievements. They are excellent role models for us all, not just in attitude, but effort, perseverance, grit, passion and ultimately achievement.
Elizabeth came 101st, Charlie 42nd and Isaac 18th, which all are amazing to say this is within their age group of the whole country! Isaac also contributed significantly towards his West Yorkshire Team winning, where he achieved a medal – an excellent achievement for a real athlete.
Congratulations to all, you really are the pride of Primrose Lane. We salute you! Thanks must also got to Parents for taking these athletes to the competition.

Cross Country West Yorkshire Finals March 2022

On Tuesday the 8th February 2022, children from Years 4, 5 and 6 competed in a Cross Country competition held at Temple Newsum. The children represented Primrose Lane amazingly; showing impeccable behavior, fabulous sportsmanship and outstanding perseverance.
All the children put in their best efforts as they were striving to achieve a personal best and run with pride for their county. Y5 Boys and Girls, Isaac from Y6 and Jacob from Y4 worked so incredibly hard to get to this stage and have done brilliantly just to represent Leeds.
It was an emotional day to say the least! The crowd was screaming with happiness , as all schools were very competitive in a good way, so many people pushing towards the finish line as our teammates took the lead. By the end, competitors were so fatigued that they all collapsed on the floor! The whole school were extremely proud of all of all our Cross Country teammates.

There must be a particular mention for Elizabeth Y5 (who came 11th), Charlie Y5 (who came 5th) and Isaac Y6 (who came 6th). Good luck to these three in the National Finals at the end of March!
Thank you to all the Parents/Carers who turned up on the day to show their support and help Mr Jackson with the teams.

#LetGirlsPlay!

As many of you are aware, on Thursday we had a football session for girls throughout the school to support the #LetGirlsPlay campaign (https://www.thefa.com/news/2021/oct/11/letgirlsplay-20211011). It was a delight to see around 60 girls getting involved in the session, where we enjoyed getting stuck in with some football drills, exercises and generally enjoying being active! This initiative has been promoted by Barclays and the FA to promote girls football and gain respect and acceptance that girls should have the same opportunities as boys with regards to football. At Primrose Lane, as I have mentioned before, we already have a girls football team in Upper KS2, whereby our team train every Monday with Mr Clarke and have games organised to compete against local and willing schools. We also have girls training with the first team regularly with me on a Thursday. It is important to us that girls be treated the same and have the same opportunities as boys and not stereotype - just like what we teach day in, day out within our school curriculum.

It was a pleasure to lead the session with the girls, ranging from Reception to Year 6. We saw the older girls embracing the younger girls by partnering up and helping them. We saw some of the first team squad helping coach and lead activities, teaching the younger children effective techniques. We saw enjoyment on children’s faces! The girls performed brilliantly, they listened well and followed instructions excellently across all ages. It genuinely moved me to see such engagement and effort. This on top of the Year 5 girls coming second in the West Yorkshire County Finals in Cross Country this week (as well as International Women’s Day this week) has been a culmination of pride and achievement amongst our girls. I am very proud of the girls in our school and hope they develop into strong, assertive women, ready to take on the world without boundaries or excuses!

North Leeds Gymnastics Academy (Boys Opportunities)

Attached is a leaflet for boys to access excellent quality gymnastics coaching with North Leeds Gymnastics Academy. Girls can also attend this club, but the advert is for boys in the local area. The taster session at after school recently was very popular, having waiting lists for children who wanted to come but couldn't get a place - so look no further, don't wait, go and join now!

Cross Country City Finals Feb 2022

On Tuesday the 8th February, children from Years 4, 5 and 6 competed in a Cross Country competition held at Temple Newsam. The children represented Primrose Lane amazingly; showing impeccable behavior, fabulous sportsmanship and outstanding perseverance.

All the children put in their best efforts as there were children striving to achieve a personal best . Y4 boys, Evie from Year 4 girls, Y5 boys and Girls, and Isaac and Toby from Y6 worked so incredibly hard to get to this stage and have done brilliantly just to represent our school.

The crowd was screaming with happiness , as all schools were very competitive in a good way, so many people pushing towards the finish line as our teammates took the lead. By the end, competitors were so fatigued that they all collapsed on the floor! The whole school were extremely proud of all of all our Cross Country teammates.

There must be a particular mention for Jacob coming second in the Year 4 Boys race, but all competitors for representing us with pride – some of who achieved top 10 places too!
Thank you to all the Parents/Carers who turned up on the day to show their support and help Mr Jackson with the teams.

Orienteering Festival KS2

In January, all of KS2 enjoyed a thrilling day of orienteering with Simon from ‘Airenteers’. The children loved learning map skills, teamwork and couldn’t believe how tiring map work could be! All children got very competitive with the electronics involved, clocking in at the start of their task and clocking out once finishing (with their ‘dibbers’, then gaining a time (which they were all wanting to beat each other’s time!).

The activities involved ‘slug trails’, where children had to follow a trail and draw it out on their maps with their white board pens. They then ‘followed the leader’ and gave each other challenges. Secondly, children were given ‘kites’, where they had to hide them, identify a starting point (with a triangle) on their maps, as well as the finishing point (with two circles) for their challengers to find. Finally, they finished with the time trials, where they chose various different trails and were timed on their completion (which brought the element of challenge, and resulted in some very tired competitors!).
Children were also given electronic ‘dibbers’ and maps, where they had to navigate to the different ‘kites’ in the correct order and try and achieve the best time in the groups. The navigation skills were essential, as well as speed and stamina. It was impressive to see some of the competitiveness of the children, but also the fitness!
Here’s what some of the children had to say about their experience:

Ellie – ‘I liked following the maps because I like geography’
Mason – ‘I liked finding all the numbers on the maps with Elliot’
Eloise- ‘I liked playing the games and using the maps to go around too’
Jemima – ‘I liked the dibbers and I think it gives you exercise and it goes very fast the time when you’re doing it. It is fun as well’
Daniel – ‘I liked running around and the beeping of the machines’
Maddie – ‘I liked running around and finding the different codes to put the dibber in’
Harry D – ‘I liked running around and finding the flags and using the map’
Seb- ‘I liked finding the correct numbers on the map’
Elizabeth – ‘I liked seeing at the end seeing my score to know if I had beaten any of the year 4s’
Lily- ‘I liked it because it gave me exercise and I liked doing all of the running’

Henry – ‘It was brilliant and it is really good for both physical and mental health.’
Hughie – ‘It was really good fun and got my blood pumping.’
Gracie – ‘I like it because it is a bit challenging.’
Evie W – ‘I like it because you get to do it with your friends, get good exercise and also do lots of steps.’

Bailey – ‘I think it was interesting because one of us had a map, drop it and remember where the flag was – it was good team work.’
Matthew – ‘I really enjoyed it, because of the exercise we got and the spreading around of the flags was very clever.’
Harris – ‘It was really good with teamwork and how we all worked together well. In the second activity, one of us held the map and one of us had to go to the flags, so we had to encourage each other.’
Nieve – ‘My partner was Henry, we worked well together. Its great for your fitness and your health!’

Athletics Competition Nov 2021

This week, pupils from Years 5 and 6 represented the school and competed in the local Sports Hall Athletics Competition at Boston Spa Academy. The events involved girls competing against each other and the boys competing against each other, then the results combined to give an overall score. The team did exceptionally well and behaved impeccably, resulting in second place across five team, which is a brilliant achievement!

The events that the children competed in were individual races (along with hurdles), relay races (again with hurdles also), obstacle relays, standing long jump, standing triple jump, speed bounce, chest push, vertical jump and bull-nosed javelin.
Congratulations to the whole team for their efforts, you did us proud! Hopefully we make it into the next round – we await the result on this, but we are hopeful that we are in the plate final! Thanks must go to the adults who helped Mr Jackson organising the team on the day to ensure the children knew where they were going and when, as well as the patience for the parents/carers picking the children up!

Whole School Skipping Festival!

On Friday, each class from Reception-Year 6 participated in a skipping festival hosted by the company Skipping Schools, led by Jodi. The day was fabulous, with all children learning the benefits of skipping for physical activity and health, as well as socially playing in the playground and outside of school. Children also learnt about persevering and if they struggled, carried on giving it a go. Each class learnt how to safely skip, as well as various different techniques, ranging from ‘double-dutch, hopping, split legs, speed skip, side step, back-to-back, change places, side-swing, criss-cross, pretzel’; and many more! Children and staff alike found how tiring it can be, as our heart rates raced up quite quickly. We all loved the experience. Here are what some of the classes had to say about the day:

Cross Country Competition (Years 4, 5 and 6)

YES WE ARE BACK – SPORT AND COMPETITION ARE FINALLY BACK AT SCHOOL!
On Monday, 29 children from Years 4, 5 and 6 competed 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 striving to achieve a personal best.
We have now received the results and are pleased to share with you that our Year 4 Boys, Year 5 Girls and Year 5 Boys have all qualified to the City Finals in February 2022! Although, Year 4 Girls and Year 6 Boys didn’t make it through, they ran their hearts out and achieved some excellent results, just missing out on qualifying by a small margin. Additionally, we had some wildcards for those that didn’t get through as a team, where Evie from Year 4 will represent herself for the Year 4 Girls and Isaac and Toby from Year 6 will represent the Year 6 Boys due to their individual achievements. Congratulations to all competitors!
