Year 3 and 4 cricket 16.05.2024

On Thursday, a group of children went down to Crawshaw to play some kwik cricket.

The children played 4 different matches on the astro turf outside. Luckily the weather conditions were great. There was fantastic team work and the children really enjoyed themselves. I hope that the take up other cricket opportunities in the future!

They played 3 matches against other local schools and worked so well together as part of a team.

Intraschool Benchball 05-09.02.2024

We have had an exciting final week before the half term, with our second intraschool sporting event between the house teams.

This time we have chosen benchball for Years 1-6 and a ball game for Reception. It has been a great success! The children participated in 6 matches, giving them the opportunity to play all the other house teams in their year group whilst also spectating and cheering on their classmates. This also gave children a chance to practise sportsmanship, the children are reminded that it is important to win gracefully and congratulate other teams regardless of the result. Well done Springbank, can't wait for the next one! The results will be in soon...

KS2 Ice Skating 22.01.2024

On Monday 22nd January, some children from KS2 went to Planet Ice for a 'come and try' ice skating event. A lot of the children who came had never been ice skating before so understandably there were a few nerves before however these quickly disappeared when they got onto the ice. The children had an instructor who told them how to get up if they fell then went onto practising some movements. All the children said that they would love to try ice skating again and everyone finished with huge smiles on their faces. Well done!

On Monday 15th January, the Year 5/6 Sports Hall Athletics squad took part in the Leeds City Heats at Leeds Trinity University. The children had trained really hard in their specific events and gave their absolute all on the day. They competed in a variety of track and field events including javelin, speed bounce, hurdles, obstacle races and long jump to name but a few! There was superb team spirit on show with all children encouraging each other and it was amazing to hear them cheering each other on over the finish line, no matter what position Springbank placed! It was an incredibly close heat with just a few points between the teams, with Springbank coming in an honourable 4th place. A special shoutout must go to the members of the team who had to take over at the last minute for a poorly member of the squad - it isn't always easy to put yourself forward for something you haven't practiced but they did so with confidence and determination. Well done to all the children for their incredible effort, often sacrificing lunchtime and breaktime play to practice their baton changeovers and reversa-board technique. You did Springbank proud!

Year 1 Commando Joes 11.01.2024

Our first event of the year was Commando Joes at Crawshaw. The aim of this event was for the children to work together and problem. There were 4 different activities for the children to complete. The first one required the children to use mats to get accross the 'lava'. In the next one they needed good communication skills to get the balls into the parachute and into a bucket - without touching them!
