Penalty Shoot Out – Reception & Year 1

On Tuesday, the children had the chance to take part in a sponsored penalty shoot out against a very special guest … BILLY BANTAM!

Reception and Year 1 had lots of fun meeting the Bradford City Football club helpers and Billy Bantam himself. They cheered on their friends to try and score as many goals as possible. A big THANK YOU to Bradford City for a great morning!

Sports Day – Part 2

As it was a little warm on Sports Day, Reception and Year 1 only took part in the egg and spoon race and running race in the morning. After we had an ice pop to cool down, Mrs Kilmartin and Miss Galtress took the children into the shade in the afternoon to have a go at their very own sack race. The children loved being active for a whole day and can’t wait for next year.

Reception race winners:

1st – Rhys T

2nd – Harley D

3rd – Lacey-Mai B
