Year 3 Dale Dyke Reservoir Walk

On Tuesday 26th March, Y3 embarked on an adventure. This was the perfect end to what has been a fantastic term's work studying The Great Sheffield Flood.

It allowed the children to put into perspective the events of March 11th 1864 as we looked at the size of the reservoir and the surrounding landscape.

Keeping Children Safe Online

In light of recent media coverage, we have been advised by the Sheffield Safeguarding Hub to issue the following reminder to parents/carers and children;

  • Children should only join groups that they know other people are using and that are safe.
  • Parents should always monitor their children's social media use, especially if they are young or particularly vulnerable.

This Online Safety Article may help to explain the advice further.

Primary School Bouldering Championships

On Friday night, a fantastic team of 16 children went to the Mini Climbing Works to take part in the qualifying round of the Sheffield Primary Bouldering Championships.

From the more experienced climbers to the first timers, everybody gave every climb their absolute best continually challenging themselves along the way. Despite the tired arms, the children weren't daunted as the climbs got gradually more challenging.

A massive thank you to all the very supportive parents especially Claire Brown who supported staff at the event. We will keep you posted on the results of the qualifying round!

Year Five Netball

The Y5 netball teams had a fabulous afternoon on Saturday when they attended the High School Under 10s Tournament. There were over 10 different schools there and they had to play 7 matches.

The girls played brilliantly and improved with every match they played. Their attitude and sportsmanship was outstanding. The parental support was also really appreciated.

A huge thank you to Caroline and her daughter Amelia for coaching and umpiring on the day.
