Hi5 Netball Friendlies at Crossley Fields 7th March
Miss Smith has been working with the Netball team made up of Year 5/6 children in an after school club.
Tonight saw the start of the Hi5 Netball competition. They started off with an evening of friendly matches to get the children used to the rules and playing against different teams.
We did fantastically, we won ALL the matches we played and the other teams did not manage to score against us.
The children worked well as a team and showed great Netball skills that will hopefully continue to develop in the coming weeks during the competition.
Strictly Pennine and Strictly Mirfield
Following the success of Strictly Pennine last year Pennine Sports Partnership decided to put on the show once again.
This year we took two dance teams; one from Foundation 2 and one from Year 2.
The children took part in an after school club to learn their routine and practice their moves.
On Wednesday 1st March the children attended Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield and performed their routines to a massive audience on stage. The children were not fazed by the bright lights or big audience and put on a fantastic show. Foundation 2 were the youngest children performing and did an amazing job!
On Monday 6th March the children went to Battyeford school and performed their routine along with the other Mirfield schools.
We are sad that it is over but we were so proud of their dancing and loved watching them perform on stage.

They worked with Mr Goodall and learnt the basic skills needed to play basketball. They worked in small groups and carried out skills such as passing, shooting, bouncing and catching. At the end of the session they played small games of basketball within their school groups.
