Bradford City Penalty Shootout

A few months ago, some people from Bradford City came over to our school and set up a penalty shootout. At this shootout, children from Reception all the way to year 6 had 4 chances (unless you forgot to bring in a letter which I will talk about later ) to kick a ball into a football net that was guarded by the one and and only, Billy Bantam.

As I mentioned in the first paragraph, there was a letter handed out to children. This letter told you all about what would happen at the penalty shootout, however, attached to the letter was a form where you could ask family members to raise money for school. If you raised the most money, you could get a signed Bradford City football! Some other things you could win were medals, bags and normal footballs, the good thing about that was you didn’t have to raise the most amount of money!

The lucky winner of the signed football was Freddie in Reception. Mrs Bedell and Mrs Bottomley were both seen holding their phones and taking videos of him winning the ball, so we can only imagine how proud they were!

We are all excited for next years penalty shootout and we are all ready to try our best to raise the most amount of money.

Year 3 positive life centre trip!

Yesterday, Thursday 30th March, Year 3 went to the Positive Life Centre at Bradford city. They were kindly given a trip around the Bradford City Stadium as part of their visit and they were even allowed to shout “COME ON CITY!” while they were there. They shouted so loud that the owner of the club heard them and came out to see them! They then took part in a workshop in a classroom at the One In a Million free school. They found out that people like different things and that its ok to be interested in different things. They also tasted different foods from different counties. Everyone said that the food tasted lovely and they didn’t mind it being from different places. One of the Year 3’s said “it was an excellent trip, the best and I loved it!

Bradford City Drug Awareness workshop

Yesterday, Year 4 went on a trip to the One in a Million free school at Bradford City Football Ground, they were lucky enough to go into the stands to look at the pitch and saw some of the groundsmen working on the pitch. 4Lo even managed to see one of the clubs new owners! After that wonderful treat, they got on to the important part, they went into the school to take part in a workshop and learn about drugs awareness, this is important for your future life as you need to know what drugs are and what they can do to your body. First after getting to the classroom, they made a circle and past round a jar containing tar that can build up in your lungs if you smoked and spoke about they already know about drugs. The tar was horrible! Then they found out not all drugs are bad. Did you know that? They got put in groups such as Legal which was the colour brown, Overdose which was the colour yellow and Prescription which was the colour black. In the teams they did more work with a group leader looking at different types of drugs discussing the effects that they can have on the body as well as making up a story about someone finding drugs and what to do with them.
Finally it was over, and the people who had stood out as the best team players and hardest works won prizes! Year 4 learn a lot about drugs and came away with lots of information, thank you to the Positive Life Centre for inviting us along.
