Sports Clubs this Autumn
Do we have any budding Andy Murrays? You bet! Our Year 5 Tennis team qualified for the Bradford School Games by playing some sensational tennis on a scorching evening at Saltaire Tennis Club.
After 2 exciting weeks of inter-school 'dance-offs', a group of children were voted by Cottingley Village Primary School to demonstrate their skills at Beckfoot Heaton Dance Competition. All of the children had a great time and danced their socks off! Thank you to Beckfoot Heaton, who hosted the tournament brilliantly.
The Triathlon at Bradford Grammar was a fantastic event. Well done to all of our children who completed the course, which involved swimming, cycling and running. The children had a great time and their attitude was superb. In fact, their efforts were rewarded with a bag of freebies and a T-shirt! Perhaps, in our midst, we have found the next Brownlee!
The Year 6 Sports Leaders are doing a great job again. They give up their lunchtimes once a week to deliver excellent sporty sessions, jam-packed with fun, active games. The younger children, who received these sessions really enjoyed them. “They always make us happy and we get to play lots of fun, sporty games,” said Kai Walker and Joseph Sharp of Year 2.
BOULDERING CHAMPIONS AGAIN!
Well done to our Bouldering Team, who skillfully tackled the climbing challenges to win the 2018 Depot Schools Cup for the second year in succession!
A special mention goes out to Evie Goodbold, who came second in the KS2 Girls Individual competition and to Finley Wilkinson, who won the KS2 Boys Individual competition.

- Sulaiman Khan (Year 4) - "You get to do things that you don't normally do - I was goalie when I don't normally get that chance".
