This weekend Megan competed at the Metro Swimming Competition, A and B Grade. She raced in the 100m butterfly, 100m & 200m breaststroke, 100m and 200m freestyle and 50m backstroke. She got all new personal bests in these races and showed amazing stamina and determination. Megan’s parents are very proud of her superb performance as are we.
Congratulations to the Year 3 boys team and the Year 5 girls team who competed in the final. A great day was had. A big thank you to Mrs Jepson and all of the parents who helped on the day.
Mr Woodhouse did a fantastic job with the rugby team in the South Yorkshire Finals. They came 3rd. Well done to Oliver, Bryn, Will, Jenson, Edward, Abigail, Hannah, Lexi-Mae and Megan.
On Tuesday KS2 had their annual sports day. Luckily, the rain stayed away and the event was a huge success.
The whole school dressed in their house colours and the competition was tough.
Many parents approached staff and commented on how they prefer the new way that Mrs Jepson has organised Sports Day. It gave an opportunity for the children to show off their sports skills and they liked the fact that the children were always active.
On Tuesday Mrs Jepson was awarded a trophy for The Best Primary School PE and Activity. At the award ceremony Ruby (Y3), Ruma, Lexi-Mae, Isabelle, Ava and Abigail (Y4) performed a superb gymnastic routine that stole the show.
Well done girls and thank you Mrs Jepson for all of your hard work. Mrs Jepson organizes all of our sports competitions. Spending most of her play and lunch times training the children for the events. On behalf of all of staff, parents and children I’d like to say a very special thank you.
Congratulations to the year 4 rugby team. After qualifying through to the Rotherham Schools Final they have come 2nd overall and now go through to the South Yorkshire Games on the 5th July.
We entered two Year 6 teams into this event. The children were well prepared for the event and the competition was strong.
Unfortunately, we lost our final match with Flanderwell scoring 340 and St Alban’s 317. The children had a fantastic time- well done!
Two teams of year 4 children competed in the Rotherham Schools Final held at Wickersley Sports College. The team braved the dazzling sun and came 2nd place overall. Thank you to all the parents that supported the children, especially Mr Spooner who provided refreshments.
Well done to all the children who took part in the Orienteering Festival at WSSC on Tuesday 2nd May. Thirty three children from St Alban’s participated in this annual event.
Mrs Jepson said that the children’s map reading skills were exceptional, running miles to complete their score sheet.
Five teams from year 6 and year 4 have made it through to the finals- well done!
