Class 2’s Change for life event at Outwood

On Wednesday the 8th of March, Class 2 went to Outwood Academy in Ripon for a change for life event.  There were around 7 other schools participating.

When they got there, all of the schools met in a ginormous sports hall. There were lots of fun activities set up around the hall. Some of the pupils from Outwood were helping out with the activities. After a certain amount of time the participants would move on to another activity. There were loads of activities including: javelin, throw & catch games, football and basketball.

 We asked some of the children who went what they thought of it:

 “My favourite was the football game,” Emma Dickinson told us.

 “It was about P.E and we did lots of different activities. We did throwing and catching, rolling balls, football and basketball,” Rhys Cooper explained.

 “It was really fun!” Lexi Bassit exclaimed.

 In conclusion, Class 2 had a really great afternoon at Outwood.

Class 3 and 4’s dance session

On Thursday 16th February, Class 4 and 3 did a dance session with the School Sports Crew. We did 2 songs: Can’t stop the feeling (by Justin Timberlake) with Class 4 and Sax (by Fleur East) with Class 3. Here is what the pupils thought:

“The dance was really good and it was very tiring,” says Joshua Risbey (Class 3).

“I thought it was very fun. Sam was really good at picking the moves. I loved it!” Harvey Vincent (Class 4) told us.

Charlotte Oakley (Class 3) said, “I liked some of the moves we did. Next time I think we should take turns to do the moves like a Mexican wave.”

“It was good fun because we got to do lots of good moves,” replied Jasmine Bell (Class 4).

“The song choices were amazing and the dances were even better,” said Charlie Lock (member of the School Sports Crew).

Everyone loved the session, and the School Sports Crew hope to run another event again soon.
