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!
Our Year 4 team of athletes competed at MFG on Tuesday night in a range of track and field events. They were fantastic competitors, cheering each other on and working their hardest. The girls won several of their track events which was impressive.
When the results were called at the end, we were delighted to find out that we had finished in 2nd place, just behind Hopton Primary School.
Very well done, Year 4!
At the Mirfield Year 5/6 Sportshall Athletics Competition which was held at MFG, our amazing athletics team came 1st!
Every single member of the team put 100% effort into their races and field events. I was particularly impressed with the excellent, supportive attitude shown by our team. The cheering was loud!
Winning the Mirfield round means we progress to the Spen Valley final.
Huge congratulations to all the team!
The team consisted of girls from years 4, 5 and 6. They played brilliantly and we are very proud of them all. Thank you to Mr Farrar for taking them.
This is the girls’ match report:
At the start, we were ready to go! There were 4 teams and we played 6 games. Our first game boosted our confidence as we won 5-0 and then continued on playing well – managing to win the next game too. The same continued for the rest of the tournament and we beat every team. The teamwork was good up front and also at the back. Everyone worked together and we had a successful win. Altogether we scored 20 goals and conceded none. We all won a gold medal and had lots of fun!
Mirfield Cross Country Competition 2017
Over 60 children represented Crowlees at the Mirfield Cross Country competition at Crossley Fields. We had teams of boys and girls from years 4, 5 and 6 who were competing for the chance to progress to the next round of competition, and children from years 1, 2 and 3 taking part in the fun runs.
It was fantastic to see such enthusiasm from all the children and we had some excellent results. I hope some of the younger children are inspired to run again in future years.
Well done to the Year 6 girls and boys who won as teams. Huge congratulations to the winners of their races: Billy M (Yr5), Veronica (Yr5), Amelia (Yr6) and James (Yr6).
