Sports Week 2016
Last week, pupils at lark hill donned their sports kits and trainers as it was time for us to take part in sports week. Children from year 1 up to year 6 tried their hand at new and exciting sports and activities.
On Monday we had a 40ft climbing wall pop up in our playground. The children were fantastic and approached the challenge with positivity and determination.
“I was scared at first, but I wanted to go as high as I could.” (Charlie, year 5)
A group of children also attended a gymnastics festival. Here they got to try their hand at different disciplines in gymnastics in a fun and positive environment.
“My favourite activity was they trampoline because I haven’t done that before.”
On Wednesday year 1 and year 2 took part in competitive activities. This was a chance to play in a competitive environment with a focus on the values that make us good sports people.
Year 5 and 6 took part in their sports day at Oasis academy. This was an enjoyable afternoon full of friendly and competitive activities. The children cheered, raced, jumped and threw all afternoon and really did represented themselves in a positive light outside of their normal school surroundings. Well done to everyone that took part!
On Thursday year 6 went on a trip to Sky high adventure in Droylesden. This was a full day of activities including: Swimming, climbing, caving and high ropes. The children were able to cheer each other on and support each other in some of the more difficult times. They also had a chance to have some fun with their friends outside of school and celebrate the time that they have shared together during school.
Years 3 up to year 6 took part in a range of different activities that they might not have done before. Unfortunately the bad weather meant that some activities were change but the children managed to take part in a street dance session.
The children also took part in seated volleyball and goalball. These are disability sports and it gave the children a chance to see how sport can be changed to include people from all walks of life with differing abilities.
On Friday the terrifying climbing wall was back for children to have another go at testing their metal challenging themselves to reach the top.
Well done to everyone who took part in Sports week you all did a fantastic Job!
On Tuesday 7th June Lark Hill took a year 3&4 and a year 5&6 girls football team to St Edmund’s RC Primary School. The year 5&6 team played exceptionally well in sweltering conditions. The got off to a winning start beating the first team 1-0 (Darcy Allen), however went on to lose the next 2 by one goal. The final game of the day was a close one and ended up in a draw 0-0.
Year 3&4 had a very successful afternoon, defending well and playing as a team throughout, they managed to win all of their games. This meant that they finished to and won the tournament!
Both teams represented their school brilliantly and should be very proud of their achievements.

Tri Golf Tournament
Lark Hill took 30 children from year 3, 4, 5 and 6 to compete in a tri-golf competition. This is a new sport for most people and the emphasis on the day was on ‘giving it a go’. That is exactly what all of the children did! It was a great competition attended by other schools in the local area and the children from Lark Hill did their school (and themselves) proud. Keep your eyes open for our school golf team in the Salford finals over the coming months.
