 Y5 Handball Competition


This competition is organised as part of the Chorley Legacy programme and it is the first time that we have taken a team of year 5 children. Eight children have been selected based on their overall performance during P.E. sessions.  Our team performed admirably during this event where they won, lost and drew a game. This is a relatively new sport for us to take part in at Lancaster Lane and we will seek to develop these skills for future competitions.
 Y3/4 Sportshall Athletics


Our team won the preliminary heat which took place in December. This is the final round of competition in which the winning team will be chosen to participate in the Lancashire School games in Blackpool later in the year.   As always, we performed valiantly at this event. Our overall standing was 10th out of 25 schools. The level of competition was much greater at this final event and, barring a few slip-ups, we had improved since the qualifying rounds. Well done, everyone that took part!


A dodgeball event just for children to have fun, not competitive and in which up to 6 children can take part from years 4,5,6. the venue is still TBC. This event proved to be a lot of fun and also a great challenge. During many of the games our children were in a winning position and were dealt cruel blows by some very able dodge-ballers! We are going to build on our successes this year and hope to challenge for the title next year.
Y1/2 Gymnastics


Gymnastics event to be held at flic flac Gymnastics Academy for the years 1 and 2. Five children to be chosen for this event. We took a team of Year 1 children to this event as they had been practising and performing the set routine as part of P.E. sessions. The children all did themselves proudly and showed great commitment, control and positivity throughout the event.
Y3/4 Gymnastics


Gymnastics event to be held at flic flac Gymnastics Academy for the years 3 and 4. Five children to be chosen for this event. The competition was fierce this year and, due to restrictions on participants, we gave a group of children a chance to try and event which is different to many others. The children really enjoyed the sprung floor and once again, did themselves and our school proud.
 Table tennis


 Round robin competition against other schools from around the area. 4 children from year 6 to take part.  With very limited practise, the children gave a wonderful account of themselves at the table tennis competition. There were clearly a number of children who played on a regular basis and our children held there own in many of the individual battles. 
 Futsal FA cup

 Round robin group stage with winners progressing to a knockout competition. A squad of 7 children will be taken. The boys showed a lot of grit and determination at this event where they were losing in every game but managed to not lose any! They drew 1:1, 2:2 and 3:3. This is a positive outcome for us all and something to build upon in the future. 
KS2 Cross Country


A cross country event to take place on Astley hall for the whole of KS2. Year 3 and 4 girls will race against other schools from the district, same applies for the year 3 and 4 boys. In year 5 and 6 it takes place at the same time racing against there own age. The team of girls and boys ran their socks off at this competition! It was an extremely chilly day where many layers were needed. Although we were unable to place in the top 3 for the team events, Ethan Ingram won the boys Y5/6 race by some distance. He showed great fight and desire to beat the rest of the field.

 Teams of 4 from year 6 will play competitive squash against other schools in a tournament format.  The children did brilliantly at this event and ended up coming away with a bronze medal.  Mrs Mills said that we were soo close to coming 2nd!

Y3/4 Tag Rugby Festival


A tag rugby skill festival to be held at Chorley panthers for the year 3 and 4 children. 11 can be taken to this event. A tricky competition which we took 8 children to. After Mr Wood took the children on a sightseeing tour of Chorley, the children learnt a new set of skills and grew into this competition with each game. This is definitely one for us to strive to achieve at in the future.

The 4 children were fantastic in this event, trying their best in every game and even winning a few of them. This is clear progress from last year where we were a little out of our depth. There are clear areas for us to work on and hopefully, next year, we will be more successful!

A Quad Kids event to be held at southland high school and for up to 10 children to take part in. We are still awaiting the final standings for the Y1/2 Quad kids event and the Y3/4 event was cancelled due to exceptionally heavy rain. I am sure that the children selected would have shone.
