Darlington Dance Festival

Sixteen children from years 3 to 6 were selected to take part in the Darlington Dance Festival at the Dolphin Centre.  Our dance this year took the children on a journey through the decades.  The children all participated in an afternoon of fun dance workshops before the evening show of dances.   

 

 

An tea out at Pizza Hut was also a hit!

Go Run For Fun

The whole school participated in a fun run this afternoon and ended up a lot more colourful than when they first set off. Double figure laps were achieved running around the school grounds and overcoming many different obstacles.  Mindful of the paint at the beginning and then delighting in it as the afternoon progressed. Many children seeking the opportunity to get as messy as they could possibly be.  Luckily parents were on board with his theme for which we are grateful and many memories were made. A big thank you to Liam and Phil from Sporting futures for their huge participation in this event.

Early preparations!

 

Testing out the tyres and some of us warming up!

Year 5 and 6 girls football tournament

Ten year 5 and 6 girls were chosen to participate  in a school games festival at Eastbourne Sports Complex today.  170 children from across 17 local Darlington Schools took part in 9 minute matches. Our children played to the best of their ability in the three games they played.  It was a fun but cold afternoon but many memories were made.  They showed excellent team work and enthusiasm to tackle each game, gaining confidence as they proceeded through the competition.

Year 3 tennis
