Year 6 Big Write

Year 6 enjoyed putting together the final draft for their ‘radio advertisement’ for ‘Charon’s Cabs’ taxi firm.

Sadly, we have now finished ‘Who Let the Gods Out?’ The children enjoyed reading the hilarious, final chapter. Unfortunately, they were not too keen on the ‘cliff-hanger’ ending – luckily though we discovered that there is a second and third book!

23.3.18 – Northern Ballet is just one reason to celebrate!

It has been a fantastic week for sport at Balby Central!

15 children were spotted as part of a project we were involved in through Northern Ballet in Leeds. The children shared what they had learnt in the sessions with their families and had a tour of the building. The girls and boys then had a surprise from the professional dancers at the company who performed a piece from Swan Lake. The children did the school proud and showed determination, passion and enthusiasm. Congratulations and thank you for your hard work. You were amazing!

To top of a busy Thursday, our Boys A team brought the cup home, winning their tense final against Woodfield 1-0, with Carlos scoring the winner! Man of the match went to Josh for a solid all round performance! Well done boys! You thoroughly deserved the win and have become fantastic role models for the school!

Pictures and highlights to follow. We hope your children enjoy celebrating Sports Relief today and that you all have a restful Easter holiday!

19.3.18 – Football update and Sport Relief

It has been another busy half term for football fixtures. Our Y3/4 boys football team hosted Crowle and although they conceded early goals, fought back very well in the second half to score 4 goals, with the match ending 4-10 to Crowle. An excellent effort against a strong Crowle team. Meanwhile, our Y5/6 boys A and B teams have been competing in a local football league and as we reach the final week of fixtures, the A team are strongly placed in second with a chance of reaching the final! KS1 were lso very lucky to get a visit from Donny Dog on Thursday morning, who was encouraging children to attend school with a competition to win free Rover tickets!

This week we are taking part in Sport Relief at school, kicking off with a fun assembly this morning. Each afternoon children will be completing fun active challenges as part of their Active1 15 to help promote physical activity. This will end in a celebration on Friday when children are invited to wear their PE kits, favourite sports shirt or dress as a their favourite sporting hero! We would appreciate any donations made on Friday morning (recommended £1) that will go towards Sport Relief 2018!!

Thanks for your continued support on the touchline,

Mr Wilson
