Dance Festival 


This was a two part event organised by our SGO and held at Retford Oaks. The first part was on Tuesday 9th January, in total 8 school's attended. The theme was The WorldCup and each school was given a country and had to learn a dance related to it. We were given France 🇫🇷 and the dance leaders from Retford Oaks had worked out a routine for our pupils to learn. 

We then returned back to schoolwith the music and the moves and had two weeks to practice the routine. Miss Edwards was in charge of our dancers and she practiced with them every lunchtime. They knew the routine off by heart and even added some extra bits.

We then returned to Retford Oaks two weeks later and after a short rehearsal with the other school's everyone performed in front of parents,friends and families.

It was a fantastic show and all our dancers loved it. 

Fit2play Football Tournament 


This was a one of event aimed at pupils that don't play football for the school team and to give them an opportunity to have a game. It was split into two age groups, years 5/6 and years 3/4 and each team could field 6 players at a time. Each team played 4 matches and the whole event was a great success. Thank you St Johns for hosting.

Dodge Ball Festival 


On Friday 9th February we took 12 pupils from years 4 and 6 to this festival. The idea was to introduce the pupils to dodge ball and learn some basic skills needed to play the game. There were 7 different activities all based on a different skill. Each school rotated around the activities spending 10 minutes at each one.

After a short break the pupils from all the schools were mixed up into 9 teams. They then played each other using some of the skills they had just learnt.

Thankyou to all the sports leaders from Retford Oaks for leading the sessions. You were all brilliant.
