Congratulations to Assheton house who won the first ever Parkfield Intra Sports Tournament today. They beat Archers in a hard fought final on the school football pitch at dinner time. The final was watched by the whole school. With children chanting and cheering, it was a wonderful experience for all involved. Although Archers came close to scoring on plenty of occasions, Assheton won the game 1-0 with a great goal from Oliver. Congratulations to all the children that took part in the tournament over the past few weeks.
Every class had an exciting time today learning how to ride a scooter safely outside, guiding it around an obstacle course with ramps and see-saws.
Rochdale Football Club have been in school providing additional PE lessons to every child in the school this week. Today, each child that has been sponsored was able to take 5 penalties against the Rochdale coaches.
Sponsor forms have already been sent out but if you've misplaced yours - please come to the office.
Any money raised is split equally between the football club and school. Any money we receive as a school will be spent on extra sports equipment. There are prizes for those children that raise a certain amount of money. The prizes include goody bags, tickets for a Rochdale match and a RFC football.
We'd like to thank you for your support and we hope to raise lots of money.
