Sport at Crowlees

Posted on May 1, 2020 in School News

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.



Hi5 Netball

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.
