Children have been busy taking part in lots of sporting events the last Term.
Strictly Pennine and Strictly Mirfield
Another year, another amazing dance performance! Our team of Year 5 and 6 dancers worked exceptionally hard to rehearse their dance to Aladdin’s ‘Friend Like Me’. They practised on Tuesday mornings before school for nearly a whole term before the performance, showing real dedication. Mrs Goldthorpe and Miss Wright are extremely proud of the team’s performances and the effort they put in to rehearsing. Thank you!
West Yorkshire Cross Country Finals
We were extremely proud to have two teams make it through to the West Yorkshire Cross Country finals this year; a team of Year 3 boys and a team of Year 5 girls.
On the race day, they were very excited and a little nervous, but they all ran well and enjoyed their races. Poppy ran exceptionally well, finishing in 11th place which won her a place in the national finals. Unfortunately, these were cancelled due to the school closures during lockdown.
The Year 5 and 6 netball team took part in a netball tournament at MFG. Although they passed and moved really well, they found it challenging to score goals so unfortunately didn’t make it past the first round.
On a more positive note though, they were very excited and proud to be the first team to wear our new Crowlees sports t-shirts and hoodies which were kindly sponsored by a parent. Thank you – we think they look amazing!
Girls Active: Stepping up for change
Some of our Year 5 girls took part in a girls’ leadership day, designed to build confidence and empower girls to take positive action to improve the PE, sport and physical activity experience back in school. This event was run by the Youth Sport Trust.

Pennine Sports Partnership Sports Hall Athletics Final 2020
After winning the Mirfield schools round of the Sports Hall Athletics competition, the Crowlees athletics team attended the Pennine Sports final at the Leeds Road Sports Barn. The team worked hard and supported each other to finish in 10th place out of 14 schools. The competition was tough but we enjoyed the experience. It was great to see so many of our school values on display throughout the morning. Well done, Year 5 and 6!
On Wednesday 9th January 2020 our Girls football team took part in the at the FA West Riding headquarters in Rothwell. The girls played exceptionally well, coming back from a goal down to win 3-1. The goals were scored by Matilda (two) and Jasmine. As a result of this victory, our girls have earned a place in the North of England area finals. Well done to all!
Fantastic efforts from our Year 5 and 6 Sports Hall Athletics team on Thursday night. Each member tried their best and contributed towards our success – 1st place! This means we progress to the next round – the Pennine Sports Final in January.
It was lovely to see all the children encouraging each other, and showing excellent manners to the adults involved.
Well done, Crowlees Athletics Team!
Year 4 Sports Hall Athletics
The Year 4 team was small but brilliant at the Sports Hall Athletics competition on Tuesday. As there were only 5 of them, they had to help each other out and do a LOT of running! They really enjoyed the events and we saw some incredibly fast running from all five of them.
Thank you Kitty, Josh, Oliver, Finn and Will!
The Year 6 football team took part in a 7-a-side tournament at St John Fisher High School. They played 5 matches in total. Each match lasted 10 minutes. At the end of the tournament, Crowlees has won 3 matches, drawn 1 and lost 1. Unfortunately for us, St Mary’s Batley had also finished on 10 points, however they had scored more goals overall which meant they were the winners. Despite the disappointing result, the boys enjoyed the tournament and played some super football. I was impressed with the speed, teamwork and resilience shown by the boys. Well done!
This afternoon, 23 children from KS2, who had qualified for this round of the cross country competition, attended the Pennine Sports final at Salendine Nook High School.
The playing fields were packed with athletes and spectators. Each field of runners was made up of at least 50 children.
The Year 3 children went first with George coming 3rd, Archie 6th, Oliver 26th, Charles 27th and Luke 36th. They have qualified as a team for the Kirklees final!
Millie finished 7th for the Year 3 girls and Maisy 35th. Unfortunately they missed out on qualifying. Thomas finished in 25th in the Year 4 boys race. For Year 5, Charlie 26th, Oliver 28th, Matthew 30th, Kit 31st, and Bobby 49th. Super running in a field of over 60 runners, but sadly they haven’t qualified for the next round. The Year 5 girls have qualified though! Poppy finished 3rd, Matilda 11th, Lauren 12th, Jessica 22nd, and Sophie 23rd.

Thank you to all our competitors for their hard work and excellent attitudes at both events. Well done!
Over 60 children from the whole of KS2 took part in the Mirfield round of the cross country competitions which took place at Crossley Fields. The course was challenging; it seemed quite long to some of the children and one side had a gentle slope!
There was a great atmosphere; plenty of cheering each other on and congratulating each other on fantastic results.
And fantastic results they were…
All our children ran well and 23 qualified for the Pennine Sports Final at Salendine Nook High School.
Teams from Year 3, Year 5, and Year 6 qualified, as well as 3 individuals. Well done to: Archie, George, Oliver, Charles, Luke, Maisy, Millie, Thomas, Charlie, Matthew, Oliver, Bobby, Kit, Poppy, Matilda, Sophie, Jessica, Lauren, Finn, Alfie, Robin, George and Andrei.
