The U11 football team progressed to the quarter finals of the Bury School’s Football League on Monday evening as they overcame a stubborn Tottington side, gaining a 3-2 victory. Two goals from Joshua Jennings and another strike from Thomas Dalziel sealed the result, with the boys showing flashes of what they are capable of, when they passed the ball.
The Year 5 and 6 athletic teams travelled to Robin Park, Wigan on Tuesday for the AJIS Indoor Athletic competition. Joining forces with the Girls’ School the team brought home a number of medals, with the highlight being Will Short’s gold medal in the U11 Chest Push. His effort of 7.25m was significantly ahead of the other two medallists.
The Year 5 and 6 football teams played a friendly fixture against Cheadle Hulme on Monday afternoon. Although the results went against our boys, it was another great example of the range of school sporting opportunities which has now seen every year six boy represent the school at football.
Year 5 Jade delivered a thought provoking and entertaining assembly all about Internet Safety. With the internet being an integral part of our lives, the assembly sought to teach the boys how to stay safe online with the help of our internet Superhero “Supersmart” (portrayed expertly by Deji) and his S.M.A.R.T rules. Although there was serious message, there was much hilarity with Supersmart leaping out in his cape and shouting “STOP!” at the top of his voice when the boys were about to do something unsafe. The whole class learnt their lines off by heart and showed the kind of confident public speaking which will set them in great stead for the future.
Year three have been learning about pirates and the oceans this half term, so we decided to create our very own treasure maps!
The boys created a plethora of obstacles to guard their buried treasure, before sketching out their map. They were then stained with tea to create an aged effect.
To complete the task, the boys drew themselves as pirates, complete with parrots, scars and scary pseudonyms…
