Run a mile in style!! 8.30am every Friday

Mr Steadman is starting a new running club after the Easter holidays, to run every Friday before school.  He will design a course around school for children (and parents!) to gradually build up to the ‘golden’ mile.  Meet on the Year 5-6 playground at 8.30am.  All welcome!

World Book Day

Mr Steadman is currently reading a book entitled ‘Barcelona – the Making of the Greatest Team in the World’ written by Graham Hunter.  In the book , there is a quote by Pep Guardiola, the hugely successful former Barcelona and now Manchester City coach, which Mr Steadman wants to share as it epitomises the importance of individual/collective responsibility, being a team player and winning in the ‘right’ way:

“Winning is not incompatible with good early training.  On the contrary, good early training means that youngsters develop into players who win, but who win the right way.  They respect their opponents, behave at all times as representatives of the club (school), accept that there is someone in charge, have tactical discipline and work hard at training.  That is the way to win.”


Girls Football Match

The Girls football team produced a stunning performance to come from a goal down to win 3-2 against Lea Forest Primary Academy with goals from Laya, Chelsea and Sidra.  They individually and collectively understood carried out the roles required of them by Mr Steadman and produced some fantastic football.  Well done girls particularly Chelsea who was awarded player of the match by the Lea Forest team.  Round 2 here we come!
