Big Lottery Bid
I am very pleased to announce that we have been successful in a Big Lottery Bid! We have received our bid for an after schools Cycling Club. The club will pilot with Key Stage Two for the rest of the school year then the rest of the children in school will be given the opportunity from September to take part.
All the equipment has now arrived in school, including bikes, safety equipment and health equipment.
The club will be run by Mr Harvey who is an experienced cycling coach.
Look out for our coffee morning in September to find out more information about the club and to find out how parents can get involved too.
Sports Week 2017
We have had a really enjoyable Sports Week. All the children who took part in Sports Days showed great sportsman ship and team spirit.
All children have had a dance session with coaches from Cre8tive Dance Academy and enjoyed either Street Dance, Cheerleading or Stomp.
We have also had intra- class competitions throughout Key Stage Two where the children took part in either Cricket or Rounders. All classes did very well but Miss Clarke's class won overall. Well done class 10!
We have just completed another two days of Boot camp and Dance camp. All children who attended had a fantastic time.
We have just completed our second set of holiday camps at Lakeside Primary. Cre8ive Dance Academy have teamed up with Little Warriors Boot Camps to provide two fun filled days for Primary school aged pupils.
Day 1 – Tuesday 11th April – Little Warriors Boot Camp
The boot camp day was a great mix of all ages from 5-11yrs. All of the children were put into colour teams (Red, Blue, Yellow and Green) at the start of the day and were set to win team point throughout the day. The children took part in an adult style boot camp and team challenges for the first part of the day. After a well-earned break the teams took part in Dodgeball, football and Cricket tournaments. The last challenge of the day was the timed obstacle course, where the biggest points were up for grabs!
It was a close contest but the BLUE TEAM were the winners!!!
James (Little Warriors) said “The children were excited to work in their teams this camp and they were really motivated during the challenges. I look forward to seeing them all at the next camp.”
Day 2 – Tuesday 18th April – Cre8ive Dance Camp
The Cre8ive Dance Camp day was set to be an exciting one for the children. After the children had taken part in “get to know you” games and fun warm-up activities at the start of the day, it was time for Popstar Glee. Singing a popular song from the ‘Trolls’ movie. Some of the children even stepped up to audition for solo parts. After this they did Bollywood, Cheerleading, Stomp and street dance too. Once the performance was ready to go the tutors found some time to play party games and have face paints too. After calming some nerves before the parents arrived, the children smashed their performance and were met with cheers and applause.
Shelley (Cre8ive Dance Academy) said “All of the children arrived early for the dance day and were excited to get started. They loved learning new dance styles and the performance at the end of the day was brilliant! There were plenty of familiar faces as well as some that were new to the Cre8ive camps. All of the children had a blast!”
Both camps will be returning in the May Half term – please watch this space for details…..
Shawn Chen who attended both camp days said, “I enjoyed all of it! I especially liked learning the new dance styles I haven’t done before, like stomp and Bollywood, and I am happy I was in the winning Blue team at the boot camp!”
Lakeside Holiday Camps
During the February half term holidays we hosted two fantastic activity camp days for children in the area. Over 40 places were taken over the two days with great success at both and excellent feedback.
Day 1 - Wednesday 22nd February - DANCE CAMP
Our first camp day was with Cre8ive Dance Academy and the children covered 5 different styles of dancing/performing. The styles include Glee (Singing), Cheerleading, Chinese dance, Line dancing and Street dance. As well as learning new dance skills the children took part in games, face paints and fun times. There was also a performance at the end of the day for parents.
Miss Shelley (Cre8ive Dance Tutor) had this to say about the day -
"The children worked hard throughout the day and put on a fantastic show for the parents. There was some amazing talent showcased by the boys and girls involved. Cre8ive Dance are looking forward to the next camp at Lakeside Primary"
Day 2 - Thursday 23rd February - BOOT CAMP
The second day was with Little Warriors Boot Camps and was jam packed with sports and fitness sessions. The activities included the high energy Little Warriors Boot Camp workout, Football, Cricket, Dodgeball, Team challenges, Camo face paints and party games.
James (Little Warriors) spoke about the day -
"All of the camp kids made friends, did great listening when learning new activities and put in loads of effort. They really did become Little Warriors for the day! I'm looking forward to seeing the kids again at Easter."
Both camps will be returning during the Easter Holidays - More information will follow over the next couple of weeks.
Imogen Jolly said "I enjoyed the Dance day because the dancing was really creative and fun and I enjoyed the Boot Camp because you found out how to use all the equipment properly."
Year 6 Hockey
Ten year six children went to Hall Cross for a hockey tournament, where they played extremely well. They won 2, drew 1 and lost to the overall winners.
Blake was praised for the 'stand out moment' as he made a mistake but carried on and rectified it. He never gave up.
Year 4 Cross Country
We took a team of year 4 pupils to Hall Cross School for a Cross Country Tournament. They all showed great commitment, team spirit and enthusiasm.
