Spen Valley Swimming Gala 2019
What a team!
On Wednesday 27th March 2019, the Crowlees Swimming Team attended the Spen Valley Schools Swimming Gala. Our team consisted of 6 children from Years 4 and 6, 3 girls and 3 boys.
They were competing in breaststroke, front crawl and backstroke. The final race for each team was the freestyle relay.
Our team worked incredibly hard and we were delighted that EVERY member of our team managed to progress to the finals of their races. As the evening progressed, we were even more proud to see Poppy win gold in the girls’ breaststroke, Oliver win 4th in the boys’ breaststroke, Eleanor win silver in the girls’ backstroke, Dylan win gold in the boys’ backstroke, Veronica win bronze in the girls’ front crawl, and finally, Edward win silver in the boys’ front crawl!
Already over the moon with our results, both the teams went on to smash their heats for the relays, and then comfortably win their relay finals!
What a night! We were exhausted just watching and cheering, so I can only imagine how tired the team must have been!
At the end of the gala, we were delighted to receive the ‘Girls’ Team’ award and the ‘Boys’ Team’ award, as well as the ‘Overall Team’ trophy!
We are so very proud of the whole team, who not only swam like champions but displayed all the Crowlees Values whilst competing.
Well done to our amazing book teams, who represented us at The World Book Day Quiz at Huddersfield Town Hall on Thursday 7th March.
They had a fun afternoon and one of our teams even managed to come 3rd out of 34!
Sports Hall Athletics Final – January 2019
Having won the Mirfield round, the Crowlees athletics team were invited to take part in the Pennine Sports Final at the end of January.
Mr Goodall very kindly offered to run some extra training sessions to help us prepare for the event as we knew the competition would be tough.
When we arrived, we were surprised to see how busy the event was and that we would be competing against 15 other schools.
We really enjoyed the event and we had some excellent performance, although the competition in our heat was particularly challenging.
Overall, we finished in 7th place. We were extremely proud of our efforts!
Well done, Year 5 and 6!
Strictly Mirfield 2019 – Tuesday 5th February
Our team of Year 5 and 6 dancers performed for the first time this year at Battyeford Primary School. They have been working hard for months rehearsing a dance to a mix of songs from the ‘Trolls’ film. This evening, they had 2 performances: one for the other children and one for the adults who had come to support them. Both shows were absolutely fantastic and we can’t wait to see them perform on the even bugger stage at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield at the end of February!
A successful evening at the Year 6 boys’ football tournament
On Tuesday 13th November, the Year 6 boys’ football team took part in a tournament with 3 other Spen Valley schools.
The boys showed excellent team work skills, encouraging each other and some even sacrificed their own time playing to allow other to take a turn when they felt it would benefit the team.
4 wins and 2 losses meant that Crowlees finished runners up, however we scored many goals and, overall, the boys were happy with their performances.
Impressively, they were able to accept that they had weaknesses in some of the matches (for example, defensively) and tried hard to apply the advice that they were given.
Well done, boys!
Back to back nights of success at the Mirfield Sports Hall Athletics competitions for Year 4, 5 and 6
This week (20th/22nd November), Crowlees attended two Sports Hall Athletics competitions with success in both!
The Year 4 team kicked things off with a win over the other 3 Mirfield schools. An electric atmosphere helped the children to run, jump and throw their way to scoring enough points to secure the win, although it was a close call! Attitudes and behaviour was excellent – the children were a credit to Crowlees.
Two nights later, the Year 5/6 team attended their competition, this time with a pathway position in the next round at stake.
Strong performances in the running and jumping helped our team to another victory.
The final 4×1 relay races were tense and exciting and we were ecstatic to win both the girls’ and boys’ races!
Waiting for the results was stressful! Finally the results were announced and to our delight, Crowlees finished in 1st place! It was another close result, with Crowlees only 12 points ahead of Crossley Fields who finished in second place.
Our team were over the moon to be heading as winners into the next round!
Well done, Crowlees on a winning week!
Mirfield KS1 Gymnastics Show
A group of 10 children from Year 1 were invited to take part in a gymnastics show at Battyeford Primary School alongside some of the other schools in Mirfield.
They showcased some of the work that they had been doing in P.E. with Mr Snaddon and Mrs Midgely over the last 7 weeks. The Year 1 children have been working on balancing, rolling and travelling, ensuring that they held balances for 3-5 seconds and that they rolled with control.
The show was lovely and the children performed with confidence! Well done, Year 1.
