Y4 Tennis Match

Tennis at Pleckgate

On Wednesday 9th May, a group of Y4 boys and girls went to play tennis at Pleckgate School.  They competed against St Paul’s and Roe Lee. They won eight games and tried their best throughout the whole competition.  For some of the children, this was their first opportunity to play in a tennis competition too. I am really proud of them all.

Tag Rugby Event

Tag Rugby Festival

On Wednesday 25thApril, a group of boys and girls from Y5 and Y6 went to Blackburn Rugby Club to take part in a tag rugby festival.  When we arrived at the event, all of the children were buzzing with excitement. Most of the children had never played tag rugby before so this was a special occasion for them.  The children played against six different schools throughout the event.  Even though the team had not had many practice sessions, they won all six games! Throughout the whole event, the children were a real asset to the school and represented the school brilliantly.

Orienteering match report

Orienteering match report

On Wednesday afternoon, Mrs Bibby and Mrs Hibbert took six Y6 pupils to Feniscowles Rec to represent our school at the Blackburn with Darwen Orienteering Competition.  The weather conditions were perfect and once we arrived, our competitors were raring to go!  Our team was split into three pairs:  Kasey and Daniel P, Libby and Daniel S and Alfie and Archa.  They all set off sprinting in different directions.  They showed excellent teamwork, reading the maps and running from each different point.  Overall, our team came 5th out of 14 teams and as always, they did us proud with their excellent sportsmanship and behaviour.  Well done!








Cycling Event

Cycling Event

On Thursday, four of our Y5 children went to represent school at the annual cycling event. Two children had only learnt to ride a bike on Tuesday but were brave enough to agree to participate. Despite being anxious at first at the obstacle track, they went for it with great courage and determination! They then completed a team time trial and an individual time trial.
At the end of the event there were four enormous smiles from Rebecca, Daniel, Caiden and Mercedes as they had enjoyed the activities so much and most importantly they were beaming with pride! We are extremely proud of their attitude throughout the event and what they achieved.

Change 4 Life Festival

On Thursday 22nd March a group of 6 children from Year 3 attended the first Change 4 Life festival, organised by students from Blackburn College.  They enjoyed a carousel of fun activities alongside 11 other invited schools.  The activities encourage physical movement  in a fun engaging way, encouraging non-sporty children to enjoy taking part.  The children enjoyed the afternoon, coming away very tired.  As always their behaviour was a credit to our school.  They listened carefully to instructions and were able to get the optimum benefit from all the activities.  They now look forward to Mrs Wilton selecting them for the next festival.

Gymnastic Report – Friday 9th February 2018



On Tuesday afternoon I was asked to take a group of children to a gymnastics
competition. I have never been involved with gymnastics before, so I was a little
apprehensive. The children told me not to worry as they knew their routines and that we would be fine. I soon discovered that they were right!

James is an expert at the arabesque, whilst Ellis is a whiz on the vault. Marisa
impressed us with the splits and Evie-Marie’s body management routine was flawless. The children did extremely well and yet again displayed excellent behaviour.
