Rock Solid-April 2019

Posted 11/4/2019

What is Easter all about?   This question raised all sorts of wonderful answers…. Jesus, new life, Jesus’s death on the cross, Jesus rising from the dead, eggs to symbolise the stone which rolled away from Jesus’s tomb… this led to the question ‘Why?’ which was answered with God’s mercy, forgiveness, God cares for us,  and all this was summed up with God loves us.  God loves us so much that he was willing to give his only Son, Jesus to die, so that he could away take the wrong things that we do and give us a fresh start.

Dodgeball Competition Series Final Week

Posted 4/4/2019

We all thoroughly enjoyed our final week of competition with Sporting Influence tonight. In our final week we took part on a mini league playing two games and then playing one final knock out game to decide finals standings. Having won both their pool games Follifoot progressed to the final being narrowly beaten by Bilton Grange in a thrilling Final. Spofforth came runners up in their pool and played Coppice Valley in their knock out game which ended in a draw leaving them joint third in the overall standings. Another great session of sporting competition, well done to all who took part.

Visit from St Mark's Church

Posted 15/3/2019

By Sofia and Con-Class Two.

On Monday 11th March the vicar from St Mark's Church came into Class 2 and taught us about being a fisherman of men.  The Vicar's idea of a religion was a dog lead.  It was a dog lead because it shows the dog where to go and what to do.  If you let the dog off the lead, it will run off and is likely to get hurt and lost.  The word religion originates from ruler, because it leads us in a straight line.

Sporting Influence Dodgeball Series Week One

Posted 15/3/2019

As we begin the new half term we begin a new block of Wednesday night sporting competition with our partners at Sporting Influence. This half term both schools are represented in the dodgeball competition series. With many children having now played this game with their PE lessons it was great to begin testing out skills and tactics in a competitive format.

 This week Mr Moss helped us all really think about the different tactics within what at first appears a simple recreational game. However as we learn more we realise there are a great deal of different skills and tactics needed to play effectively and be competitive. It was great to practice these skills with the support of Mr Moss and Mr Crooks. More matches to come next week.

Posted 7/2/2019

Teams from both schools enjoyed another week of coaching and competition tonight along with six other local schools. Our coaching tonight focused on shooting from angles as well as well as positioning when defending. As the children played their four matches we also focused on ensuring we always respect the judgement and decision of the referee recognising we are all human and all make mistakes. We also worked on encouraging each of our team members when they have succeeded but also when they have made a mistake.

Well done to everyone who took part another great evening of sport.
