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.
An innovative walk-to-school project celebrated a 5 year milestone this week with buns and banners outside Mirfield Library.

On Wednesday 28th March 2018, the Crowlees Swimming Team attended the Spenborough Swimming Gala. Our team consisted of 6 children from Year 5 and 6, 3 girls and 3 boys.
They were competing in breaststroke, front crawl and backstroke. The final race was the freestyle relay.
Our team worked really hard and we were delighted that some of our team managed to progress to the finals of their races therefore receiving finisher’s medals. Tegan received a well-fought silver medal in the girls’ breaststroke. Well done!
We are very proud of the whole team, who displayed all the Crowlees Values whilst at the Gala.
Another year, another fantastic performance from our dancers at Strictly Pennine. The group of Year 5 and 6 children have been rehearsing for months in order to be ready to perform on the stage at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield.
After last minute rehearsals on Tuesday, the children were ready! However the weather was trying very hard to spoil our plans. Luckily, our show was able to go ahead without any problems. We were lucky to have our performance on the Tuesday as the Wednesday and Thursday shows were cancelled.
Both dances, an Indian style dance to a song called Shakalaka Baby and a dance to a Thriller mash up, were fantastic! The children really rose to the occasion and enjoyed their time on stage.
We are extremely proud of the dedication put in by the children, and parents, to learn the dances and perform. Miss Wright and Mrs Goldthorpe are already looking forward to next year!
Fantastic team effort from the Year 5/6 athletics team
On Thursday 18th January, the Year 5/6 athletics team attended the Spen Valley Sportshall Athletics competition at the Leeds Road sports barn.
Our team were very excited to be taking part and had all attended an extra training session in the previous week to prepare for the event.
We gathered lots of points in the field events with some outstanding jumping and throwing. The boys pulled back much needed points with fantastic results in the track events. The girls fought hard in the track races, but the competition from the other schools was tough.
Overall, we finished in 3rd place. We were a little disappointed as this means we don’t progress to the next round. However, we know that we have done really well to get this far!
