Dear Parents / Carers
The school sporting season is upon us. We are very pleased to have again been awarded Silver for our School Games participation.
We have continued our investment with both the School Sports Partnership and Tigers Trust through whom we are able to develop staff and pupils’ skills and knowledge as well as participating in many inter-school competitions. There are times, due to lack of pupil interest or staff being unable to attend, that we may not be able to compete in every single event but we endeavour to do our very best.
As explained in the previous sports’ newsletter, the Bronze, Silver, Gold badges will be awarded again this year but will also include involvement in Tigers Trust activities. All children will start from Bronze level again this term so can all previously awarded badges now be left at home please? If your child still has their Sports Council badge, can that please be returned to me as we have now elected new council members?
Year One: Francesca Pallant and Rupert Sage
Year Two: Isabella Hayden-Craggs and Oliver Stevenson
Year Three: Rebecca Miller and Sonny Bath
Year Four: Dolly Scruton and Jaden Dennis
Year Five: Alanna Jones and Joshua Sutcliffe
Year Six: Holly Crawley and Bradley Frew
Year 5 and 6 have already been involved in the local schools’ football tournament on Tuesday 19th September and Year 4 have enjoyed a morning of Winter Multi-Sports at Bridlington School.
Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 had the opportunity to run in the local schools’ cross country event on Tuesday 3rd October at Bridlington School where we had a multitude of success in every race entered. A big well done to everyone who participated – an enthusiastic and positive attitude was displayed by all, in an event which can be very challenging. Congratulations to Becky Miller (Y3), Dolly Scruton, Charlie Topham (Y4), Celeste Martin, Ellis Bath (Y5) Alfie Scruton, Brodie Sedman and Alexis Zulueta (Y6) who have all qualified individually for the East Riding Final on Tuesday 24th October at Cottingham High School. Ellis, Alfie, Brodie and Jacob Maull have also qualified as the winning Y5/6 Boys School Team.
Many of the children who participated in the Cross Country attend Junior Road Runners (which is led by our very own Mr Fulton). Roadrunners is held every Wednesday from 5.30pm to 6.30pm. Please ask at the office if you would like further information.
On Tuesday 10th October, 10 children from Y5 and 6 represented the school in a Tag Rugby competition at Bridlington Rugby Club. All the children played with a high level of skill, enthusiasm, determination and sportsmanship and were a joy to watch. We were placed fourth in our group and 7th out of 10 school teams overall.
Many of the children who took part in the competition attend our own after-school Tag Rugby Club and credit must go to Paddy, Callum and Mr Fulton for their coaching. A high number of OLSP pupils are now also attending Bridlington Rugby Club training sessions on a Saturday as a result of their experience in school.
Tag Rugby (Wed & Fri), Yoga (Mon) and Netball (Wed) after-school clubs have all started this half term.
Paddy and Callum from Bridlington Rugby Club are currently working with Year 5 and 4 on a Thursday afternoon and Tigers Trust are working with Year 1 and 6 on a Wednesday afternoon.
On Tuesday 17th October, Year 4, 5 and 6 developed their outdoor and adventurous skills with Sports Coaches from the East Riding who then, in turn, delivered an outdoor and active training session on orienteering to all the teachers after school.
We are beginning to record all of these achievements and memories photographically and a photographer from the Bridlington Echo is usually at all of the School Sports Partnership events. Please ensure you have returned your photograph permission form if you wish your child to be included in these photos.
Thank you, as always, for your support
Mrs S Pratley
