Gardening Equipment Donation

A HUGE thank you to Mr Haigh (parent of child in Class 4) for his super generous donation of lots of gardening equipment to school. There are small tools and large handled tools, watering cans and a large number of gardening gloves too. The gardening club will make good use of the equipment and tools and when Class 4 have their turn working with Twiggs, they will put the gloves to good use too.

Thank you!

Sportshall Athletics

Our Year 5&6 children were in action on Monday 3rd December at Penistone Grammar School ALC in a sportshall athletics competition.

7 teams took part in the competition and tensions were high as the event got underway.

Our team got straight into the competition demonstrating some excellent throwing, running , jumping and team working skills. After a hard fought and competition our team finished credible 3rd and were a credit to school and themselves.


Well done everybody

Christmas Tree home required!

Good home wanted for our beautiful Christmas tree!
We are very lucky to have been given a gorgeous tree by Horsfields Garden Centre, which has now been decorated and is taking pride of place in our school hall.
It would be such a shame for this tree to have a short Christmas, so if anyone would like it and can collect it on the last day of term (21st December) it is available free of charge. If more than one person applies we will draw names from a hat.
Please inform the school office if you would like it.
Thank you

Class 6 Bikeability Week

Pupils in class 6 brought their bikes into school last week to work with the Barnsley Bikeability Team. The children were assessed first on the school playground on Monday to assess their cycling ability before being taken out into the village to gain confidence and an understanding of the Highway Code. They were continually assessed throughout the week (working towards the Level 2 Bikeability Certificate) to ensure that they had acquired the skills to keep themselves safe when riding their bike on the road. Certificates and badges will be presented in Celebration Assembly. Well done to everyone who took part and the fabulous instructors who helped the children throughout the week!
