Rugby Finals

On Wednesday 10th April, the Y5/6 tag ruby team attended the Barnsley borough rugby finals, hosted by Teamactiv. The competition was of a high standard, and the Silkstone Reds team played some excellent rugby. Well done to all those who represented the school in this event. Thanks to all the parents and family members who helped to support the team. We are also grateful to Mr Watt for his coaching input and his excellent photographs.

Swimming Success!

Well done to all the children in Class 4, who have now completed their 10 weeks of swimming lessons. They achieved 100% pass on confidently swimming 25m and 100% pass on their National Curriculum Award too. Many of the children also earned additional badges and certificates.

A super effort!


Class 4 Recorders

Leave a comment



Class 4 have been working really hard learning the recorder in swop around.  They have played a song called ‘Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy’ that uses quite a few different notes and rhythms.  We have also played ‘Hot cross Buns’ as a round where they have all taken it in turn to be part 1, 2, 3 or 4.

Purse Making

To finish their work on the Anglo-Saxons, Class 4 completed a DT project. They designed a purse using a template, then cut out their felt pieces and decorations. They then used a variety of different stitches (running stitch, cross stitch and over stitch) within their designs. Some then sewed a button, on while others used Velcro as a fastening. They made a great job of them and they look fab!

Well done!
